Amazon.com Product Description

The C800 Advantix camera from Kodak is an Advanced Photo System camera with point-and-shoot simplicity.It features a 27-80mm motorized zoom lens and infrared autofocusing, letting you snap photos from 2 feet and beyond.A pop-up flash fires automatically in low-light situations and fires away from the lens, reducing red-eye.Auto close prevents washout photos, and multibeam focusing keeps your subject in focus when taking wide-angle pictures. The flash folds down when the camera is off and serves as a protective lens cap.

The Kodak C800 records lighting and color data on the film's magnetic strip for the photo lab to use when developing, and it imprints each shot with time and date. Because this camera is a member of the APS line, it offers three print formats--classic, group, and panoramic.The viewfinder displays your selected picture format. The Kodak C800 automatically advances and rewinds film, and the safety interlock prevents the door from opening until the roll is completely rewound. The timer allows you to take self-portraits or to include yourself in group shots. Kodak's midroll change feature lets you change film speed or remove and reload a film cassette.

A roll of Kodak Advantix color film, battery, coupon book, instructional manual, and detachable camera strap are included. Kodak offers a one-year warranty for parts and labor. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful camera!
I bought this camera over three years ago, and it never once failed me. It has several useful features, like portrait mode, red-eye reduction (though that's pretty standard in a camera nowadays, it seems), and the ability to take different sizes of pictures. I found the panoramic size to be especially nice. If you plan to take a lot of pictures at night, expect to receive clear, bright results with the camera's night mode. I took a picture in the pitch dark using night mode, and it looks as though the picture was taken in daylight! The self-timer and various flash modes are great, too. Moreover, the camera is very easy to use--once you read the manual, that is. However, one thing to keep in mind is that Advantix film is usually more expensive than regular 35 mm film.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera!
Bought this camera when I thought I was going on a trip to Peru. The trip fell through, but I've had lots of fun with the camera since. I usually take it with me everywhere, just in case I spot something interesting to take photos of. Most recently, the camera has gone snowshoeing with me-I really appreciated the drop-in loading when trying to perform this operation while wearing gloves. Recently developed my first roll of film, and am very impressed with the quality of the pictures, especially the panoramic shots. Be warned, however, developing panoramic shots is expensive...I think I had to pay .90 per panoramic shot, which can add up quickly. However, in exchange, I have a number of gorgeous pictures to admire. Overall, I like the ease of use of this camera, although I wish that the tiny buttons were bigger-its harder than it looks to press a button with the "control button acuator" (to quote Kodak) than you would think. A small ergonomic inconvienience to pay for nice pictures. I'm planning to take it with me when I actually DO make it to Peru-maybe next year! :) Ciao.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best you can buy in its class
I have used different cameras, from manual Russian cameras, to state of the art point-and-shoot. I have even fiddled with digital cameras, and considered switching to digital. Well, I decided to stick to film for now, so I bought the Nikon N-80 (known in Europe as Nikon F-80, same camera with minimal software differences).
This is a very good camera, which adapts to every kind of user.

Occasional users: You can set it to automatic mode, in which case you have a very expensive point-and-shoot camera (even though I don't know why would one buy this camera to use in auto mode only). For people with little experience the camera's many controls might be intimidating, and the included manual provides help only for people that know quite a bit about cameras. Also, the flash has to be popped opened manually in order to work, which many people would forget (like I do sometimes). Perhaps, for ocassional users, it would be better to stick to a point-and-shot camera designed for point-and-shot.

Advanced amateur photographers and hobbyists will get the most out of it. Think of a professional camera similar to F-100, without the proffessional price tag. They will have all the customizations offered. I love the simplicity of exposure controls. You can switch by turning a thumb-wheel between pairs of speed-diaphragm while keeping an optimum exposure (in auto mode). In addition, a good option is continuous or single shot metering mode, which comes handy in action situations. For situations when timing is important, the controls are so well placed that once you get used to them, you can change all the settings without even taking the camera from your eyes.
If you are a professional, you already know about this camera and about the F-100 line, which might be better for you in some situations (even though in 90% of the cases this camera would be more than enough).
Things that might need improvement:
In dark places, the focus is somewhat slow (even if the "illuminator lamp" is used), and if your subject moves, you might have a problem focusing fast enough in auto mode. I lost some pictures in the beginning, until I learned to circumvent this issue by switching to continuous focus, or even to manual focus. I think that any other camera in this class would have the same troubles in similar situations.
All things considered, I love this camera and I wish I had more time (and money) to play with it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Camera I've ever owned.
I originally bought the Minolta X-700 in early 1985 while stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army. It had just won "Camera of the Year 1984" from an important consumer magazine. I bought it because I was very satisfied with another Minolta camera,the XG-7, that I had purchased six years before. Also, to be truthful, because the X-700 looks great! It turned out to be an excellent choice as I took thousands of excellent photos and especially color slides with it over the years. I used it in nearly every country in Europe, in a wide variety of conditions, and it never let me down. What makes this camera so great is that it offers an advanced amount of automation, but still gives the user a large degree of control. You can get off that quick shot, yet still be very creative. I was very disappointed with models that came out later. Unfortunately, my original camera was stolen, but I'm happy to find and buy a replacement from Amazon after all these years. Truly one of the best cameras ever made in its class, and one of the most durable and versatile.

5-0 out of 5 stars You should learn photography with this camera
The X-700 is great for learning photography. It is manual but its beauty is in the various automated settings, which range from controlling everything except focus to fully manual. It is intuitive and easy to figure out, and comes with the reliability you'd expect from Minolta. The handiest feature that I enjoyed is the lightmeter readout in the viewfinder. In the various photography courses I've taken, I've found that it is superior to many other manual SLRs in that it has levels of convenience and automation that help you get a feel for photography, but still allows for the photographer to have complete freedom.

This camera earns bonus points for being not only reliable but durable. I've owned mine for over 12 years, and its suffered quite a lot of abuse. And hand in hand with its long life is a market rich with used parts. I've picked up quite a few lenses that fit on the X-700 for pretty cheap.

I'm not an expert on cameras by any means, but when I want to work on my photography, I put away my other cameras and even my digital and get my X-700 out.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great older-style SLR
I picked up this camera to replace my Canon AE-1 that froze (something gear related). At first I thought this was just another fully manual SLR but after doing some homework I discovered that not only does it function as such, which is nice in itself, but it has an Aperture-Priority Auto-Exposure Mode which automatically selects the proper shutter speed based on existing light conditions. It works brilliantly. I have taken this camera on hikes, diving trips and just about everywhere else and it has worked flawlessly. Picture quality is great, options are many and it's basically everything you would expect from a high quality Minolta SLR camera. Five stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best cameras to learn photography on in the world
Simply put, a fantastic camera. This is a nice compromise between the current generation of automatic SLR cameras and the difficult to use SLR's of the past. In program mode, all you need to do is focus and shoot. If you want more creative control, it's right at your fingertips. Picture quality is awesome as well. The MD line of lenses and accesories for this camera are noted for their quality and depth. This is really a great camera for the student or professional. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The Action Sampler takes a great idea and turns it into a fun little camera. This camera uses four lenses to capture four different photos on one frame of film. The Action Sampler takes the photos a fraction of a second apart, creating an "action sample" that shows the sequence of motion. (Click on the "More Pictures" link at the top of this page to see sample photos that were taken with the Action Sampler.)

Brought to you by the same folks who produce the famous Lomo camera, the Action Sampler shares the Lomo's wacky, creative image--as evidenced in the glossy, photo-filled little manual that comes with the camera and is a work of art in itself. The Action Sampler is also a study in styling with its colorful, plastic see-through case. It doesn't have a flash and sports only a flip-up square of pink plastic to frame your photos. Everything is manual, including film loading, winding, and rewinding, and there are no settings to fiddle with.

As the manual blithely states, "The Action Sampler is not a finely tuned piece of apparatus made only of the finest in hand-crafted modern materials. It's made of plastic." In short, this means you shouldn't expect sharp, detailed pictures. However, you can expect truly unique, fun, and often striking sequences of photos. The Action Sampler uses normal 35mm film but needs plenty of light (outdoor photos turn out the best), so if you want to use it indoors, we recommend using a higher-speed film (ISO 400 or higher).

The Action Sampler is a blast to use, and it makes a great gift. While it has its limitations, its distinctive way of seeing the world is fun and exciting. --Holly Blumenthal

Pros:

  • Captures action with four photos on one frame
  • Easy to use
  • Colorful, unique styling
  • Uses normal 35mm film (2 rolls included)

Cons:

  • Cheaply constructed
  • Needs lots of light
  • Relatively low-quality pictures

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun!
I've had this camera for a few years, and it's great fun. The editorial review is accurate- don't expect great pictures, but almost any subject can become strangely compelling when captured by this camera. My own favourite photos came from a nighttime visit to a carnival- the pics were surreal!

I've found that being within 3-8 feet of the subject is best, and use film that's rated to your light conditions. The big secret to successful photos is to move the camera strongly while you are taking the picture (or have your subject moving). The resulting photos are all slightly different, off centre and skewed.

The more you experiment, the more fun you'll have. Just remember to warn your developer that these photos are going to come out a little 'differently' than usual! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Laughs just for taking it out of the box
Never in my life do I recall taking an item out of the box and receiving such a swell of laughter. Every time I bring this plasitc camera out, manually switch on the flash, manually advance the film and of course, forget to remove the lens cover (manually), my guests laugh enough that they don't have to say cheese. As of yet, I have never taken a picture that shows my subjects in their entirity. I havent even gotten used to what I have to do to get a picture that doesn't draw yet more laughter. I know that you can not be close to your subject if you even want to see their whole face.
I didn't expect this to be a digital quality, sharing the moments type of camera and it is a good thing. My guests and I do share the same feeling that it is a fun camera just preparing the camera for use. Quality -- NO * Fun -- OK * Amusing -- Yes

3-0 out of 5 stars Why?
My imagination must be broken and I have asked several people so theirs must be broken, too. Why would anyone want a camera that takes 9 images of exactly the same thing? If you want 9 prints, just have 9 prints made. If you have a digital camera, as I do, just print 9 copies on the same piece of photo paper. Please feel free to educate me as I am totally baffled.

1-0 out of 5 stars Broken
I opened the package to find a cheaply-made camera. All my disposable cameras look better than this. I can't comment on the picture quality because the camera would not advance the film - the advance wheel is stuck, and the button to free the wheel is stuck also. A piece of junk I'm returning it back to Amazon today.

5-0 out of 5 stars FUN!!!
This camera has got to be the funnest thing I've ever owned! You get four photos per frame, so basically there are four 2"x3" images per 4"x6" photo. The photo quality is awesome - nice, crisp and full of color. Plus, this it is super easy to use and load.

It's fun to keep the photos intact and look at the variations per image, but I've started cutting the photos and using them in craft projects - collages, greeting cards, etc. And they are perfect wallet size! The possibilities are endless.

Buy one and enjoy it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Cheap and Cheerful
I agree with the other reviewer who said this was a cheap little plastic camera. It is, but the photos were great quality, crisp, clear images and vivid color; just as good as you'd get with a "regular" camera. Immediately, I started taking all kinds of artsy-fartsy pictures, wondering how they'd look once they were developed. My pictures came out almost looking like postcards. I got the best results taking close-up shots of things. I'd also reccomend taking pictures of neon signs. I did the Radio City marquee. Very cool.

I only give this product 4 stars, because I dropped it on the ground, and it half opened up. None of the film was compromised, and the AA battery they sent with the camera was dead. ... Read more

Manufacturer: Nikon
Sales Rank: 5571
Average Customer Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

Nikon is legendary for its meticulous construction and amazing picture quality. The N70 is Nikon's top model in its non-pro SLR line. It has a wide range of advanced features that let you take incredible photos in any shooting situation. With a built-in flash, improved autofocus, and a good selection of exposure modes, the Nikon N70 makes it easy to take perfectly exposed and focused pictures with little effort. At 7mm by 3mm, Nikon's cross-type autofocus sensor module has an extra-wide focus detection area that swiftly locks onto a moving subject. The autofocus can detect subjects in light as dim as EV minus 1 (at ISO 100). The N70 also offers both spot and wide-area autofocus--the latter is especially handy when you want to loosen up your composition.

The Nikon N70 uses 3-D matrix metering for incredibly accurate exposure. An SPD (Silicon Photo Diode) sensor divides scenes into eight segments; the N70's microcomputer then reads the light pattern for data on brightness and calculates contrast to put out optimum exposure value. The Nikon N70's built-in speedlight flash uses a five-segment TTL multi-sensor for optimal flash balance.

In addition to standard program, manual, and shutter- and aperture-priority modes, the Nikon N70 offers bracketing and a useful mode called flexible program, which lets you shift the combination of shutter speed and aperture normally set by the program mode. ... Read more

Features

  • Includes SLR camera body
  • Built-in pop-up TTL flash
  • 8-segment 3-D matrix, center, and spot metering
  • Point-and-shoot operation with selectable automatic or manual focus
  • Automatic focus with close-up capability

4-0 out of 5 stars A great camera by a great camera company
I have to admit that I am biased. I only ever use Nikon products. I have an F3 and an 80008. I purchased the N70 for the built in flash feature (so I wouldn't have to lug around my SB-24) and to have one nice do it all camera to take on vacations, etc. without having to take my whole camera bag with F3 or 80008 bodies. Well, I've shot a wedding, a trip to Spain, and, well, you get the idea. Haven't even needed to pickup the other two. The nice thing about the N70 over the N60 (which is also a great camera) is that the N70 still has the synch port. I wouldn't, of course, trade my F3 or 80008 for studio work or other stuff, but for one compact camera for taking on trips, etc. this camera is great. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it isn't a professional's camera like the F3 or F4 or N90, but this camera is fantastic and more than enough camera for most people.

4-0 out of 5 stars I like the N70, but...
I own an N70 and it has served me well. For an amatuer, and even a serious amateur, it's a great camera, however, keep in mind that the N70 lacks a few features that you may not miss at first, but may come to want over time. For example, there's no depth-of-field preview, the shutter syncs at 1/125th not 1/250th, the max shutter speed is 1/4000, half that of the 8008s or N90s, which means nothing for action photos (1/4000th is plenty fast) but in high light situtations where you are still overexposed at f22, the extra speed is necessary. Also, there's no locking button for the shutter, and no data back available. I am considering upgrading to N90s or an F4s, but I will keep the N70.

5-0 out of 5 stars Glad I did not get a better one!
Years ago when I was looking for a SLR I was thinking of getting one of the expensive ones but people told me to start off with something like this. Well I did, and I am so happy. I love this camera. I have taken it to Italy, Netherlands, Oahu, Kauai, and the Big Island in Hawaii. It has gone everywhere with me and given me some great pictures.

If you are just starting off with these cameras or even if you have been using these types of cameras for awhile you will not be disappointed with the N70.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Serious Camera for the Price.
The user interface is intuitive but non-traditional. The only camera (to my knowledge) with a comparable on camera flash is the $1300 Minolta Maxxum 9. By the time you become a serious enough photographer to need Depth of Field preview and faster synch (which the N70 does not offer) it will be time to upgrade to a more expensive model; if you are just taking family/vacation photos you will not miss these features. Nikon lenses offer an excellent value to quality ratio. I suggest starting with the Nikon 50mm/1.8 AF-D lens before purchasing a zoom lens. Eyeglass wearers will find this camera more to their liking than the Canon Elan II which is also an excellent system. The N70 will fill your point & shoot needs as well as giving you creative manual control should you decide to make photography a hobby. Pentax also makes excellent SLR cameras and should be considered if you do not anticipate becoming really serious (because Nikon has such a large market share they can offer pro-grade lenses at a lower price point). Don't forget a sturdy tripod and a camera bag.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Truly Exceptional Camera
Within the first ten minutes of having this camera I could use most of features. This incredibly fast camera (3.7 fps at high continuous film advance, and very fast autofocus)it is impressive. It has a varitey of built in programs like, action, depth of field, night, ect. These are very usful but can alway be overrided for custom control.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome camera for the price
Like a lot of the other reviewers have said, this camera takes great pictures! Clear and crisp! And I'm the kinda person that takes pictures hanging out the car window and on the back of a 4 wheeler. It's as if I was standing still! It's so nice to be able to capture a panoramic picture whenever you want, and be able to switch back to regular sized photos with the touch of a button. And all on the same roll of film. So easy. I would highly recommend this camera! And with such a low price, you cant go wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera
great camera, i bought it here and its given me the best pictures of all my previous cameras, it fits in your pocket, and is the size of a pager, with the width of 2 pagers. nice handy camera, film cost is alittle more, but well worth getting great panoramic pictures!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best!
Even for people on a low budget this season, this is a great, fun, easy-to-use gift.I have owned one of these for almost 2 years now, and have found many ways to get exactly the picture I want. With three photo sizes that change in the viewer, one is always guaranteed to know approximately how thier photo will turn out. Though not particularly inexpenxive, the APS film system is reasonable, and the pictures turn out great! For a younger, or older, aspiring photographer, this is the camera to start with!

5-0 out of 5 stars great camera
i bought this camera right before a trip, and was a little nervous using a new camera. i was not disappointed, every picture came out crisp and clear. the size is great, so small you can easily put it in your pocket. the different settings are good too, especially the panoramic. film, batteries and developing may be a wee bit more, but it is definitely worth it. i've owned more expensive cameras that did not take pictures this well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tiny but not a toy
This is a tiny camera (a good-sized guy could hide it in the palm of his hand.) But the small size doesn't mean the Elph is a toy. No, indeed.

The sharpness on the pictures is amazing considering that the negatives are smaller than 35mm and that this is not an expensive piece of optical equipment. (We used to speculate that Canon made the optics better on APS cameras to showcase the APS format in the best light.)

You can have some fun--one special feature is that you can take 3 different sizes of photos (regular sized, large sized and panorama sized) on the same roll of film. Switch a lever on the back and go from a portrait to capturing the beauty of a mountain vista or a busy plaza.

For a "keep it in your pocket at all times" camera, this can't be beat. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera
This is a great little camera for an amateur photographer looking to get a little more advanced with a manual camera. It allows you to manage your own aperature, shudder-speed, and focus, but is able to switch to automatic mode, and manages these settings itself. Also, if you spring for an auto-focus lens (not that much more), the camera will focus on the subject for you.

Do yourself a favor, and buy this camera! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Major malfunction issues!
I would give this camera five stars if not for the fact that I've had to send it in for repairs three times in the 2.5 year that I've owned it. When it works, the Canon Sureshot takes incredible pictures. The zoom and flash are great, and I am especially fond of the red-eye feature. However, my camera kept having this weird problem where it would rewind film when I was in the middle of the roll, and then I'd try to put a new roll in and it would rewind the film again. Each time that happened, I had to take it in for repairs. I was lucky that I lived close to a Canon repair facility at the time, otherwise I would have been really ticked about having to pay to ship my camera to them so many times. The repair people were really nice about everything and my camera has been working well for almost ten months now (knock on wood! I'm sure that will change as soon as I post this review). My next camera will NOT be a Canon, however. I've learned my lesson.

5-0 out of 5 stars Crisp, clear photos
I've had this camera for over a year and continue to love it. When I bought it, I was looking for a small, automatic camera, with a good zoom. I have an SLR which I love, but wanted a camera I wouldn't mind throwing into my bag 'just in case.'

The photo quality is excellent, particularly for portraits (this camera takes especially nice photos of the 'I've got my arm around my friend and am holding the camera to take a picture of the two of us' variety). Although the zoom is long, there is very little distortion, and photos are always crisp.

Unlike one of the other reviewers, I have found quity a bit of red-eye when I use the flash, and it sometimes take the camera a second to 'auto-focus.' But those are my only complaints.

5-0 out of 5 stars My new best Friend
This camera took incredible pictures of my doberman in the snow, tho he was running literally as fast as he could when the pictures were shot. There was absolutely NO blur. And the pictures display images exactly as i saw them through my own eyes- perfect color and sharpness. It must be the best camera in it's class.

Like other cameras, it has imperfections. Here's what I found:

*Although I had no trouble with red-eye WHATSOEVER, a few of the pictures I took indoors had glare over some peoples' eyes.

* Flash is only good for images up to about 7 feet away in the dark( i.e. darkest night time).

*what I saw was not always what i got: when i looked through the lens I saw a big, beautiful christmas tree. When I looked at the photograph, I daw the bottom of it. Maybe I need to read the manual some more to learn how to avoid this.

The good outweighs the bad by so much, the bad is insignificant unless compared to an SLR.

* no redeye
*In half-descent lighting, photos turned out with quality of perfect potraits- no kidding. The images appear literally as I saw them through my own eyes

* the camera adjusts to new lighting in an instant
*the camera has an all-metal shell- very durable
* the battery has almost full life although I have shot 5 rolls of film and took my sweet time making each photo, leaving the camera on for a significant amount of time often
* it looks very cool and unique, and has caption and date-printing options and more altogether than I am familiar with, not to mention a nice display screen that reveals battery power, number of photos taken with the present roll of film and the mode it is in
* the zoom is FABULOUS ( not slow or noisy)
* This camera is uncomplicated to use and this is an extroardinary price. No doubt this is the best camera for this price.
* takes fantastic pictures of moving objects. WOW!
* for people who, like me, don't like manuals, you can switch it on automode and and use the camera without ever peeping at the manual( as i did the first few months i had the camera). All you have to do is zoom for desired view, press shutter button down halfway first to adjust the camera to the lighting. Then, CLICK! Beautiful..............

This is the best Christmas present I have ever gotten. NO matter how high your expectations from this camera are, I think it will at least meet them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best choice in this price range
I was shopping for point and shoot camera and after comparing zillions of cameras settled on this. The only other camera that compares with the Canon Sure Shot Classic 120 is the Olympus Stylus Zoom 115 and above. I have been using this for 6 months now and pictures are *very* sharp and have *very good* contrast. Here are the pros and cons of this camera

Pros>
1. Solid styling, feel and "retro" Look. Correct size for a point and shoot.
2. 7 Preset modes (macro, portrait, action, spot, night, auto and personal) with a big and easy dial to choose between them - No more fiddling with small buttons.
3. Small buttons for people who like to fiddle with small buttons - you can personalize your picture taking and make the camera "remember" it.
4. Active as well as passive autofocus (active autofocus doesnt work on subjects more than 20 feet away. Passive autofocus doesnt work well in low light and low contrast. Together they must make a difference). Timer so you too can be in the picture.
5. Portrait and macro modes are simply amazing! If you are thinking of a camera just for portraits and closeup shots, forget other cameras. Buy this.
6. Focussing is the fastest among the cameras I have handled. Its almost instant.

This beauty however has its cons too
Cons>
1. Night mode *NEEDS* a tripod. However with a tripod results are breathtaking.
2. The pop out flash needs some getting used to. I found myself obstructing it many times.
3. The battery cover is weird. you have to be careful with it.
4. The lens protection (though it has not caused problems for me) could have been a bit better.
5. The zoom buttons are okay - but can be better designed.


The reason working against Olympus were - Olympus has flaky zoom mechanism. Canon's zoom motor and mechanism are solid - the telescoping portion is made of metal. Olympus has slow focussing when compared to Canon. The Viewfinder in olympus is dim and tiny - though subsequent models have improved it.


The pros of Olympus are - better placed flash. Solid clamshell design that protects the lens as well as makes the camera splashproof. Canon's lens cover though adequate is not as good as the clamshell.


To sum up - if you need zoom, active as well as passive autofocus, preset modes for the beginner, good viewfinder, self timer, fast focusing, good feel, styling and size for *THIS* price - you cannot go wrong with this camera. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good pictures, improving support
Nikon's cameras are among the best in the industry - this one, which my wife generally used, is great. It produces much better pictures than most point and shoot cameras do, even if you leave everything up to the camera, and you can override the camera to produce real art.

I had originally written this review angry because of how much trouble I was having to go to for a plastic part that had fallen out of the camera. I had been quoted prices of over a hundred dollars to fix it, and I had to either drive to one of the few support locations or ship my camera away and hope it came back. In the end, though, we got a hold of Nikon, and they sent us a replacement part for free. It showed up in less than a week, and I fixed it in about five minutes. For people who are less willing than I am to service an expensive camera, there still might be support worries - I'm satisfied again, though.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must camera for all types of people
Wow, worth the money, of course it's better than digital. Bought is because sick of those blury bad quality photos. This is good for all occasions, professional-everything. We bought another long zoom lens that makes it a proffesional camera. There is no question about it-buy it before you buy any other camera!
Very durable and proffesional quality. Good options for day and night shots. When will they make video camera's like this!
Of course you must press the button twice to focus and then the light will pop up then you shoot. At first your always worried your going to take a picture bought you'll get easily use to it. Look at pictures 20 years from now in good quality, you won't look back on the purchase. It's a Nikon at a great price that all families and photographers need. I'm not upsessed with photograghy, but I like to preserve memories and send good quality christmas cards out.
I got a digital Kyocera and we took 12 pictures before it broke. Of course that was several years ago when the camera was purchased a little under a thousand. We go the nikon because we knew it was easy and trustful. Their are sprint pcs palm sized digitals that are nearlu the same quality as our kyocera-Big Big Mistake!

Amazon.com Review

The Action Sampler takes a great idea and turns it into a fun little camera. This camera uses four lenses to capture four different photos on one frame of film. The Action Sampler takes the photos a fraction of a second apart, creating an "action sample" that shows the sequence of motion. (Click on the "More Pictures" link at the top of this page to see sample photos that were taken with the Action Sampler.)

Brought to you by the same folks who produce the famous Lomo camera, the Action Sampler shares the Lomo's wacky, creative image--as evidenced in the glossy, photo-filled little manual that comes with the camera and is a work of art in itself. The Action Sampler is also a study in styling with its colorful, plastic see-through case. It doesn't have a flash and sports only a flip-up square of pink plastic to frame your photos. Everything is manual, including film loading, winding, and rewinding, and there are no settings to fiddle with.

As the manual blithely states, "The Action Sampler is not a finely tuned piece of apparatus made only of the finest in hand-crafted modern materials. It's made of plastic." In short, this means you shouldn't expect sharp, detailed pictures. However, you can expect truly unique, fun, and often striking sequences of photos. The Action Sampler uses normal 35mm film but needs plenty of light (outdoor photos turn out the best), so if you want to use it indoors, we recommend using a higher-speed film (ISO 400 or higher).

The Action Sampler is a blast to use, and it makes a great gift. While it has its limitations, its distinctive way of seeing the world is fun and exciting. --Holly Blumenthal

Pros:

  • Captures action with four photos on one frame
  • Easy to use
  • Colorful, unique styling
  • Uses normal 35mm film (2 rolls included)

Cons:

  • Cheaply constructed
  • Needs lots of light
  • Relatively low-quality pictures

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not perfect.
.

I chose to buy this camera because it was rated number 1 in Consumer Reports magazine. Besides being one of the few that was rated as actually taking good photos (which is the most important thing!), it also got a high rating for being small, light, simple to use, for containing many features, and for being well priced.

I agree with this in general and recommend it. I tested all the features and they seemed to work well. I even compared photos from this camera with those taken at the same time with my other two cameras (including an SLR). My conclusion is that the Minolta Freedom Zoom Explorer does take nice clear pictures with good colours that I am pleased with. However, a potential buyer should be aware of certain things:

1) The viewfinder itself is quite small and dim, and the objects within the viewfinder are also very small. The viewfinder is the biggest problem with the camera and an annoying one. You have to squint and struggle to get your objects into the frame even if you are not an eyeglass wearer. Dark settings will make the situation worse.

2) Some, but not all, of my 28mm wide-angle photos have a dimness or darkness near the sides.

3) When you turn the camera on, it goes to the 28mm wide-angle setting by default. This is annoying since you will rarely use this setting for photos. Instead it should go to a more common middle setting like 50mm (since that represents what you see with your naked eye).

4) There is no way to know what zoom setting you are at. Ideally, as you zoom in and out you should see the numbers (mm) displayed in the viewfinder or at least on the main LCD display. The camera does not do this, and the objects in the viewfinder are too small and dim to even help guide you. So you are basically guessing with every shot.

5) When taking shots with no flash, especially self-timer shots, you'll have a hard time knowing when the shutter has closed. You can hardly hear it when you are not right next to the camera or if you are in a loud environment. A light should stay on for the length of time that the shutter is open. Otherwise you or your subjects might stop posing before the camera is done taking the picture, which produces a blurred image.

6) The remote works, but not as smoothly as I would have liked. Sometimes I have to push the button 2 or 3 times to get the camera to shoot. I did test the battery and it is good.

7) It is difficult to use this camera with gloves on because the buttons are quite small.

8) A couple more features like the BULB feature (to keep the shutter open for as long as you want) and the feature that overlaps frames (for cool effects) would have been good to have. Some point and shoot cameras have these features.

But besides all this, all the features that the camera has work well on mine like Macro (for close-ups), Panoramic, Night, Landscape, even the Red Eye Reduction seemed to do its job despite all the flashing being so annoying.

It is also a very easy to understand and use camera, and I like the yellow Date numbers on my photos instead of red ones that most cameras produce.

Overall, I am very pleased with this small, light, fun camera in general, and still recommend it despite the faults written above.

.

4-0 out of 5 stars Point and Shoot Warrier
I was drawn to this camera because of the special macro setting with a minimum distance from objects at 1.1 feet. It is specified as having a "smallest field of 6 inches" - but at 1.1 feet, the smallest frame is about 17" wide. Out of focus close-up images happen about 40% of the time - either because I was closer than 1.1 feet or the autofocus may be inaccurate at that distance.

All these P&S cameras start out in 28mm wide angle mode - which naturally distorts the image (at the edges especially and indoors as noted in other reviews). There is no way to find the "standard" 50mm setting to minimize the distortion, except to guess w/ the zoom.

These finer points should not discurage most users of this very sturdy camera. However, the zoom control is cramped (if you use your left eye to focus), and it does take some time to find the image in the viewfinder, especially with a dark image in view.

The camera endured 2 years of torture in the bottom of my bookbag. Maybe I'll actually use the free softcase in the bookbag to provide more padding. It's light enough to carry around all the time for those moments when you say "I wish I had a camera right now". Good flash control. You must use the "landscape" setting if there is an object in the forground - or you get an image focused on the back of someone's head.

2-0 out of 5 stars Repair Problem
I purchased the Freedom Zoom Explorer about a year and a half ago after my 6-year old Olympus Stylus Zoom bit the dust. I've really enjoyed the camera--it takes great pictures most of the time. There is a problem with the flash rebound--it takes several seconds for the flash to recharge which is not good when trying to capture continuous flash shots of your kid's squad in cheerleading competitions. You can take the pictures, but most of them will not have the flash activated. I am now camera shopping to replace the Explorer. I started to use it the other day, but when I took it out of the case (which was also in the video cam case), the LCD on the top of the camera was black and mottled. It still took pictures, but I have no idea what setting it was on or how many shots were left on the film. At least I was able to rewind the film. After taking it to a local camera shop, they determined that it could be sent off to the factory and repaired.... They couldn't tell me what had happened or how it had happened, and I certainly don't have a clue since it's been safely stored since it was last used. This has been a good camera, but I was hoping to keep it longer than eighteen months. I don't think I'll be purchasing another.

5-0 out of 5 stars camer has wider angle lens than others
I got this camera 6 months ago after reading that it was a rated one of the best in Consumer Reports, and I have been extrememly happy about it. The pictures are extremely clear and just exceptional. The only thing to watch out for is that the lens is wide angle when unzoomed. That means you get more of the field of view in, which is great on some shots, such as in big buildings. However, shots of scenery that have not been zoomed may have dark corners as the lens creats a fish eye effect. Its not bad, and the wider angle is great for many occasions. If it happens just know its not a defect, just something to watch for.

2-0 out of 5 stars poor flash photography
I've never seen anything like it. My photos looked like they were taken with a filter that darkened the right and/or left sides of the image. Same problem indoors or outdoors, with flash and wide angle. Also not happy with the sharpness of the focus. ... Read more

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

The compact Freedom Zoom 160 is loaded with state-of-the-art features, including Minolta's latest AREA-AF autofocus technology, a 4.3x zoom lens ranging from 37.5mm to 160mm, date and time imprinting, and a worry-free, red-eye reducing flash that fires automatically whenever necessary.

It's also one of the fastest autofocusing cameras available. Bring the camera to your eye and the eye-start sensor activates the focus and exposure systems so that the camera is ready to capture the image when you are. The Zoom 160 is smart enough to recognize your subject and fast enough to capture it on the move.

The Freedom Zoom 160 has three autofocus modes: area AF, spot AF, and target AF.The area AF is a fully automatic mode that allows the user to just point and shoot the camera. Spot AF mode accurately singles out a subject among a group of objects. Target AF is optimized to capture sharp images of moving subjects.

The Freedom Zoom 160 is great for vacations and gatherings of family and friends. The flexible zoom range of 37.5-160mm will capture those important images, group pictures, and close-ups of distant landmarks. The aspheric zoom lens produces sharp prints, thanks to the area AF system with its 940 focusing steps.

The worry-free flash fires automatically whenever necessary, even in tricky backlit situations. The red-eye reduction feature helps to reduce the red-eye effect to give your pictures a more natural look.

The built-in quartz data imprints the date or time right onto the photo, making it very useful for cataloging photographs and making photo records of important events. Data imprinting can be turned on or off as desired.

Other features include:

  • A film-chamber lock function prevents accidental opening of the back cover
  • Film advancing is silent thanks to new belt-drive system and nylon gears
  • Continuous drive mode allows the user to automatically take sequential shots every 2.2 seconds by simply holding down the shutter button
  • The night-portrait mode blends flash with longer shutter speeds to provide greater detail in night-time scenic or sunset shots
  • An IR remote control RC-3 offers immediate and 2-second delay from as far away as 16.4 feet

A fantastic camera at an unbelievable price. I've taken pictures throughtout Europe, Australia and New zealand in all kinds of weather and light conditions with always the same excellent results. A great camera to take take on a hurry up and keep moving tour. It takes wonderful landscapes, animal and people pictures. Even does well from a moving boat or car. The auto focus is incredible. Just point and shoot, the camera will lock on focus. We're now off to South America.

1-0 out of 5 stars Cheap construction, flash burned out after few months of use
I purchased this camera after extensively reading the online reviews here and elsewhere. Everyone seemed to love this camera. It did take "decent" photos, however, it was poorly constructed, the "automatic scene recognition system" freaked out my wife who could not tell what the camera was doing. She ended up ignoring the flashing red lights in the view finder. They were quite distracting.

The camera does not remember its settings after being turned off and then on again.

The built-in flash turned black after only a few months of use.

Finally, we took it on a hike, my wife had it in her hand, and lost her balance. Barely tapped it (with her hand reciving most of the blow) on the ground. Now it won't turn off and the lens shutter won't close.

It is a basically a pile of trash now, and not worth the $188 that we paid for it.

I'll think twice before believing on-line reviews and/or before buying another Minolta.

I bought this camera for my trip to South Africa. I got some amazing shots. Very crisp and clear with brilliant colors. It's very quiet which is good but also pretty bad. It's hard to hear the thing wind so if you press the button and then move the camera, your pictures could easily be messed up because you didn't wait long enough- some of mine did unfortunately. So other than this set back, my photos came out excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Photos
I used this camera for an Alaskan trip, for the first time. I was very pleased with the results and ease of use. I did find the multiple flash settings a little difficult to master. However, overall the camera produced remarkable, clear photos.
A lens cover would be very helpful, as an accessory.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beauitful Photographs!
After having attended the 2000 Belmont Stakes with my Canon Elph LT camera and gotten good, but very distant looking photos, I decided I needed a good zoom lens camera for my next trip. After some searching, I had come across the Minolta Freedom Zoom 160. At the time I had purchased it, it had the longest zoom lens available in my budget. I took it with me to the 2002 Belmont Stakes and I was amazed at my final results!

I had taken 75 photos (About 10 had come out blurry, but mainly because my hand was shaking and no fault to the camera), and they came out very crisp, clear and vibrant. I suggest that anyone who uses this camera get their photos made onto a photo CD, because thats where the camera's detail really sticks out.
