5-0 out of 5 stars Far Exceeds My Expectations
Bought this camera to replace one I had actually worn out! I run a lot of film through a camera in a year. This point and shoot camera gave me sharp pictures with good color on 400ASA film, indoors with flash. The flash was effective to 17 feet away. I put 200 ASA film in and shot pictures both indoors and out. Results were more than satisfactory. I plan to take this camera to Italy with me instead of my SLR. The zoom is smooth, and the image in the viewfinder is very close to actual picture. I love it! Worth every penny!

5-0 out of 5 stars Olympus Zoom 170
I have owned quite a few cameras in my life, and feel this is one of the best I have come across. The zoom is excellent, and so far, only two rolls of film used, I have had zero failures. The buttons are a little bit small, and I just need to get used to that, the zoom is easy to use. The feel of the camera is good, despite its small size, it fits well in the hand. The point and shoot era is here, and all the years of my using a Nikon 35mm slr seem to be over. This is just too simple and easy. To go back to the changing lenses, carrying all the baggage, etc hardly seems worth the effort if the end result is as good or better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera with excellent zoom
This is simply a great camera. I have used it for over 2 years. I bought it at buy.com when it was newly released. We bought it primarily for the zoom. The zoom is simply excellent. This is one of the best point and shoot i have used. I have used Canon and Minolta before. The controls are all conveniontly placed and the zoom works great. I have never missed a picture.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best in its class.
Simple point and shoot. Awsome zoom. Pictures are consistenly sharp and clear. I'd recommend it, specially for travel when a digital camera just doesn't have enough memory to hold so many pics.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great camera - my 2nd Stylus
Love it! I had my first Olympus Stylus for YEARS. After dropping my first camera way too many times (over many many years), I finally had to replace it. I was sticking with the Olympus Stylus. Like the first one, this camera also takes great pictures - especially close up people-pictures. I always use 200 film and get great results every time. Call me lucky. I don't need all this zoom power though and find I don't use it. Probably a little too much zoom for a hand-held camera, but the photos I take with this camera are very nice. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Canon EOS Rebel 2000 is an affordable, lightweight, andfull-featured automatic 35mm SLR for both beginning and advancedamateur photographers. It offers a host of special modes for specificshooting situations, including full auto, manual, night scene,portrait, landscape, and more. It also has shutter-speed priority andaperture priority modes--although most users will inevitably leave thecamera in full auto mode a majority of the time and the cameraperforms very well that way. Just remember that the empty rectanglesymbol on the mode dial is for full auto.

Some other basic features include an impressive seven-point autofocussystem, LCD panel with extensive information display, three exposuremetering modes (evaluative, partial, and centerweighted), autoexposure bracketing, a multiple exposure function, and depth-of-fieldpreview. The autofocus system is incredibly responsive, and includesseven focusing points that can be set individually for super creativeshooting. In other words, using the LCD panel as a guide, you can setthe camera to automatically focus on the far right focus point (or anyof the other points) so your main subject doesn't have to be in themiddle of the frame to be in focus in a snap.

In fact, most settings can be adjusted in creative ways on the Rebel2000, like the exposure level, which can be set to overexpose orunderexpose up to two full stops for tricky lighting situations whereyou might want to fool the camera's metering system. It also has asmall, built-in pop-up flash, plus a hot shoe for an additional flashunit. Overall, we found this camera to be smartly designed with anattractive look and a comfortable feel. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

The sleek, compact Elph Z3 from Canon slips easily into a purse or pocket, and its stylish, futuristic design and advanced features make this APS camera a must-have for gadget lovers.

With all the attention Canon's Digital Elph series has been receiving, it's easy to forget that the first Elph models were film cameras. This latest-generation model has much in common with its predecessors, including a chrome-and-aluminum body, diminutive dimensions, and use of the Advanced Photo System (APS) format.

Refinements for this model include a longer, lower shape--less like a deck of cards and more like a cell phone--and a backlit status LCD that emits a cool blue glow at the push of a button. Several other features were revised to improve photo quality, including a redesigned lens and a newly developed passive autofocus system. Additional features include a 2.3x zoom, spot metering, self-timer, and a five-mode flash with red-eye reduction.

A lithium CR123A battery provides power, and the camera uses APS film, a format jointly developed by five leading photo companies in 1996. The APS format is designed to take advantage of a number of technological advances developed in the decades since the introduction of 35mm film. Here are the main advantages to the APS format:

  • Size and convenience: An APS cartridge is smaller than 35mm, and the film is completely enclosed, which simplifies film loading.
  • Midroll rewind: Many cameras let you switch film midroll, allowing you to shoot in both color and black and white. Each roll has an indicator on top that lets you know if the film inside is unused, partially exposed, totally exposed, or developed. After developing, the negatives remain inside the cartridge for protection and long-term storage.
  • Three print sizes: Most APS cameras let you choose from three proportions for your prints--"classic," which is a 3:2 ratio like 35mm; "HDTV," which is a 16:9 wide-screen format, and "panoramic," which is a long 3:1 print.
  • Magnetic information storage: The film is coated with a magnetic layer much like a videotape. This layer can store information from the camera that can be used during developing and printing to make the best possible prints. This also means that photo time and date information can be printed on the back of each picture instead of the front.

The two biggest drawbacks to the format are size and availability. The negative is approximately half the size of 35mm, so each photo has less detail than an equivalent 35mm negative. This can result in pictures that look grainy, especially when enlarged. Though the format is popular, it's still relatively new, so the film can be harder to find than 35mm film and developing may be slightly more expensive. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best camera for casual photographers
I'm consistantly amazed at what Canon can pack into such a small package. I took a Canon Elph Jr. with me to Rome in the fall of 1999, and the pictures it took are spectacular. This camera has the 2x zoom feature, but otherwise it's very similar. The APS photosystem is easy to use, and the index prints and negatives that stay in the canister are godsends for those of us who are less organized than some. I was particularly struck by the clarity of the photos, the richness of the colours, and the ease of use of the camera. While the 24mm APS format is smaller than the 35mm standard film, the resolution is still excellent. Far better than any digital camera under $1000. One of the most useful characteristics is the tiny size. No one believes this is a film camera when I show it to them. And because it fits anywhere, I take it with me in my napsack and shoot photos of anything I find interesting. (I think my friends have come to curse this feature!) Paired with a $100 flatbed scanner to scan photos for your web page, or to send via email, I think the Elphs offer a far better bargain than any digital camera or film camera available today.

2-0 out of 5 stars Maybe mine is defective.
I received the camera as a gift. Though the camera is light weight and compact, I was dissapointed to find that the Camera features did not perform as marketed to the consumer. The focus is less than adequate,if you could see through it you may be able to catch a fair picture. The feature for red eye, I would have to ask "is there really such a function?" The majorty of pictures which contain humans, dogs, cats, ect reflect red eye. And if your thinking of using this camera for a active event that may require a bit more rapid advance, be prepared to have photos that are overlapped, that is if the camera even advances the film that you pay more money to purchase and develop. If you are one that has your photos enlarged,(when you get a satisfactory shot) I hope you will not require anything bigger than a 5" x 7", as the film required for this camera can not produce enlargements bigger than the standard 5"x7". So forget making that panoramic picture into a larger size. Needless to say, I am one very dis-satisfied consumer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great camera!
I purchased this camera about a year ago and I have not had a single problem since! I took the camera to Japan and NYC, the pictures came out far better than anything I've seen before with a film camera. The colors were brillant and detailed, it felt like I was still there. The only problem is that some pictures came out with red eyes, however that was not a problem for me because they fix that at the place I take them to so I never even see the red eye. The battery lasted a year under heavy use, the longest I've ever had before. The controls are easy to use and really come in handy. For the price, this camera is definitely a gem!

5-0 out of 5 stars Canon Elph 260LT
I would suggest this camera to anyone who wants a reasonable camera that takes wonderful pictures. I got this camera as a gift a few years ago, and have yet to take a picture that does not turn out perfect. (I do however suggest always using 400 speed film.) I have bought a few of this camera for gifts, and plan do buy more for this Christmas season. I have also talked other friends and relatives into buying this for their use! This is a great camera for a great value!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera
I bought this camera for my hiking trip in New Zealand earlier this year. I was extremely pleased with it. It's small and convenient, and the pictures it took came out breathtaking! The flash is quite strong: this camera took great night pictures, even where other cameras failed! I also took pictures from airplains, through the glass, and most photos came out very good. Some (not all!) panoramic pictures aren't as sharp as one would ideally hope, but it also depended on how much I zoomed in. For those of you who are unsure whether the zoom feature is necessary, believe me, it is! The camera is very small, stylish and light, and everyone thinks it's a digital. Changing film was a breeze. I used this camera in some rugged conditions in the mountains, and it withstood the test. I wouldn't recommend using it when it rains, though; I don't think it's waterproof. The only thing I wasn't happy about was the fact that the cord attached to the camera was too short to put aroung my neck. This inconvenience can be easily overcome, though. (Also, I recommend using Kodak APS film and developing it at Kodak, using Perfect Touch.) All in all, a great camera, highly recommended, especially for scenic trips where you need to use the Panoramic viewer: you will be amazed at the quality of the pictures! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Couldnt be more pleased
I bought this camera wanting some control and great zoom with, at least moderate picture quality. What turned me on most was the fact that I didnt have to buy and carry around another lens to get "closer" to the object I wanted to capture. I havent owned many SLR cameras but, I have to say this is easily the best camera I have ever owned. I thought for the price, I would just be getting a mediocre camera with marginal picture quality at best, but I was pleasently mistaken. This camera takes great pictures with incredible detail. If you do not know anything about apurature, and how to generally opperate an SLR camera this is the camera you should seriously look into. It is fully automatic. It will sellect the best settings for the light and focus for you with only a push of a button. If your a control freak, dont worry, you have that option as well. You can sellect a manual setting that will give you total control. The zoom is unbelievable, and the camera is well balanced. For the price, you cant beat it! Ive really enjoyed taking pictures with this camera. Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional quality, with the ease of point and shoot!
That "inner voice" told me that this was the camera I wanted. I checked it out in the stores. I liked the way it looked, I liked the way it felt. The fact that it was a 35mm SLR, and a good zoom was a must.
I checked prices on this camera EVERYWHERE. You will not find a better deal on this camera than here at Amazon.com!
So the incredible price sealed the deal.
It is so easy to use. It has an automatic feature that does it all for you, right down to the focus. Or all the settings for a professional.
BUT! I got my first pictures back today, and WOW!!!! The color is brilliant, the images sharp! We took pictures at the zoo, and they look like they came out of a magazine!
The only drawback is the size. It's a little heavy and bulky, but preserving my precious children's faces in such a quality photo.... I don't mind! I couldn't reccomend a better camera

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun starter camera
Although all the gadgets were a little overwhelming at first their instruction manual is very helpful and helped me not only with the camera but a little general photography. It would have been nice to get some batteries with it but if that's the only gripe I've got I'm pretty impressed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Beginner SLR
I recently went on a trip to England, and wanted a camera that was of higher quality. I chose the SLR style because I wanted what I saw in the viewfinder to be what the final product looked like. I chose this camera specifically because it has an integrated zoom lense (up to 120mm) and multiple automatic features. I have found this camera to be excellent in nearly every aspect.

PROS:
1.Fantastic image quality. Olympus lenses seem to be of superior quality to some other major brands I've tried.
2. Quick selection of auto features (night, landscape, high speed, etc.)
3. LONG battery life
4. Quick rewind and loading of 35mm. film

CONS:
1. Built in lens means no way to change lense (No going to a telephoto or macro lense.) What you see is what you get.

1-0 out of 5 stars fuzzy pictures
I have to say right up front this camera takes fuzzy pictures! we cannot figure out why! If we eliminate using the zoom that reduces the fuzzy pictures but we still get 2 or 3 in the roll. I recently took a picture of my daughter smiling for the first time and was so excited about gettting the film developed. Of course, there were 2 pictures fuzzy and one was the pic of my daughter smiling. I was mortified. I do not recommend this camera at all and am shopping for a new one. I did look up on the internet and not often but i did find another person with the same problem. I would have taken the camera back but it did not start this problem until 4 or 5 months into use!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good, Economical Camera
If you still want a film camera and don't want to break the bank, this camera is a perfect candidate. Probably the best feature of this Nikon camera that even Nikon's literature won't tell you is the design. No I'm not talking about the way it looks, but rather where things are located. For once a camera maker has located the flash in correct proximity to the lense! Compare this camera to the others when you are in the store (or even online for that matter). The flash is located farther away from the lense than on pretty much all the other makes and models I've looked at. Why is this important you ask? This is one of the few cameras I tried in my quest for a new camera that did not produce garish red-eye. I didn't even need to use the mostly gimmicky red-eye reducing feature to get good pictures. I maybe get one picture per roll that exibits noticeable red-eye... and my house has poor lighting to boot. If the flash on a camera is located far enough away from the lense you don't have the red-eye problem so prevalent in the increasingly tiny cameras you see nowadays. Kudos Nikon! You got it right! Watch... they'll discontinue this design next week or something. Also, the majority of pictures I took were very clear, exhibiting as much, and in some photos, more detail than some of the more expensive, feature laden cameras I tried. I tried Pentax, Olympus, and Canon's new U line. The only issue I have with this camera is the shutter speed (1/200th of a second). If your subject moves quickly, which kids often do... expect some blurred photos. But all the portrait-type shots I took, where the subject was still, were very clear and detailed. Photos taken between 4 to 8 feet were excellent. Photos taken further away or using the zoom extended to max are good, but I wouldn't say excellent, they do appear a little grainy and sometimes out of focus, but I noticed graininess when using the zoom on ALL the little point-n-shoots I tried. Also when using this camera, there is a little circle in the viewfinder used to lock the focus on the subject. This is very accurate, or shall I say touchy, because you need to place the circle EXACTLY on what you want to be in focus. If you place the circle on the subject's shirt, the shirt may be crystal clear, but the person's face a tad out of focus. This is a perfect camera for taking head-n-shoulder group or individual portrait shots. For the price you pay for this, it takes very capable pictures and you don't have to stress about red-eye, mainly because it is built right. I would give this camera 4 stars because of the slower shutter speed, but because it's one of the few cameras I've come across where the lense and flash are laid out correctly, combined with the value pricing, I give it 5 stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Kevin
This camera is a great buy. The timer function is great for when you want everyone in the picture and there is no stranger around to take it. I have taken many family pictures this way. All pictures seem to turn out great despite our lack of photography knowledge. I liked ours so much, I bought one for my mom and she finally gave up her disposable camera addiction. The result is that she too gets great pictures. Some cameras have too many bells and whistles and some not enough...this one is just right.

1-0 out of 5 stars Viewfinder Not Worth a Second Look
I purchased this product online without a test drive. My bad!! The viewfinder is in an awkward location and causes painful eye strain when shooting multiple times. Picture quality is poor. I am shopping for a replacement.....

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the description
I bought this camera on line relying on the description which stated that the battery was included. I had some events which I wanted to take pictures of immediately and felt that having the battery included would allow me to take immediate pictures, and also felt that not having to buy a new battery (or two) would increase the value of this purchase. When I received the camera it did not have a battery, I did report it to the customer service but its been two weeks with no satisfaction. It seems like a good camera, but I'm returning it as "missing a part." ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars So much fun to use!

Before using this camera, I pictured myself madly fiddling with a bunch of buttons after taking each photo. This just wasn't the case - it took virtually no time to preview each print and make the choices for it. Granted, it's a very small color screen, so you can't judge details or sharpness of the photo. But you can judge the angle and overall effect of the photo you just took. You can then choose, in a matter of seconds, what size you'd prefer it to be and how many prints you'd like developed (0-9).

This camera is a great size, large enough to be comfortable in your hand. I like that the lens cover is hard, attractive and opens with ease. I'd never used APS before, and I love being able to drop in the film and go. The camera takes two batteries, which load quickly.

I had read about the difficulty of finding a developer to process this film correctly. The top two online developers will not process the number of prints you choose when you expose the film. The head of the film processing at our local [store] had never developed preview film, but he was eager to try it out. Sure enough, he printed the number of prints we wanted and the sizes we chose.

I will be carrying this camera on our trip to Scotland, mainly for the preview function. I'll never have to order reprints again - choosing negatives, filling out forms. And no wasted prints! My favorite feature is the ability to print the date and time on the back of each photo. There will be no need to keep a film log as we go.

I have withheld one star from the rating because of the actual picture quality. Though the pictures have great color, those taken with the flash are a bit too harsh. The quality just isn't as clean and professional as those taken with my Olympus Stylus Epic 80. But the preview feature is so convenient and easy to use that I am willing to lose a slight bit of quality. For those who are not willing, I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of this technology.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Non-Digital Bang for the Buck
I've owned this gem for about six months and taken a few hundred pictures with it since then. I'm glad I bought it. Here's the scoop.

Pro:
1. It allows you to take 4 x 6, 4 x 7, or 4 x 11.5 sized pictures with a touch of a button. Even more impressively, though, you can CHANGE THE PRINT SIZE after you've already taken the picture! So, you take it in one format, examine it through the large display on back, and then can accept that format, change it to a different format, or delete the picture. It's a great feature when you're out shooting scenes or landscapes, and you want to compare how the picture will look in each style.

2. With the right film (400 and above), this camera has taken solid pictures for me. I've had several folks tell me the quality is professional looking. This was one reason why I chose this camera over a digital camera -- the picture sharpness. For those of you considering digital cameras, remember that all but the most advanced of them won't have the tight pixelization of this cheaper APS camera.

3. The battery is long lasting. I'm on my 400th picture or so and the battery is going strong.

4. This camera uses drop and shoot APS film. APS film, unlike 35 MM, allows for the digitization of your pictures direct from your local processor. I've developed every roll with print pictures and a CD-ROM. I can keep the pictures in an album and e-mail some images from the CD to friends and family far away. The Kodak software (Free with the cd) allows you to manipulate the images, make desktop pictures, and other fun stuff. Also, APS processing gets you a neat one-page sheet with the negatives numbered and shown in miniature in case you want to order reprints.

5. The LCD preview, obviously, makes this camera stand out. It's a clear picture (mostly -- see below), and it is 100% accurate in predicting the size and clarity of the final photo.

6. Advanced features -- the camera has some advanced flash features (low light, portrait mode, etc.) that prove useful in some circumstances. More impressive, though, is that the camera has an auto-flash mode that 'knows' when to use the special features.

Neutral
1. The zoom lens isn't as powerful as some other APS cameras, but it does its job. Basically, it allows me to get slighly closer than my eye can see, but you're not going to see a basketball player's eyes if you're shooting from the upper level of the arena. For that, you'd need at 35MM camera with a zoom lens. But, if you're using this camera for ordinary landscapes and close-ups, the lack of a strong telescopic lens doesn't make much of a difference.

Cons:
1. The flash is rather weak, and if you're doing a lot of nightime photography, even with fast film, you'd want to get a 35 MM camera that can accomodate a wider range of flashes and lenses. I've had several good scenes not turn out so well, because I overestimated the reach of the flash.

2. The LCD screen is great with photos in daylight or dusk, but does less well with photos in the dark. I've had a few photos look completely blacked out on the screen but then actually come out looking *okay* when they came back from the lab. But, unless a whole bunch of your photos are taken at night, this shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Overall:
For what you're paying, you're getting a great APS camera with some digital features that takes great pictures, allows you to correct your mistakes, and preview your work. Unless you're a professional photographer, it's hard to beat. I'd definitely buy mine again.

Why can I notfind this camera anywhere

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Camera I Have Owned!
I purchased this particular camera July 2003. Thus far I have taken 7 rolls of film with this camera. First off I found loading the film to be the easiest I have encountered. You just drop the film in, shut the door and the film sets itself. All of the features in this camera allows the photographer to take GREAT pictures. Every picture I took, using this camera, looked as though a professional had taken them. To get familiar with all of the features I purposely took pictures that utilized each feature. Again every picture came out GREAT! Close ups of people did not have the red-eye due to the Flip Flash feature. Photos I took of objects far away seemed a lot closer due to the Infinity feature. Photos I took at night looked as though they were taken in the day light due to the Night View feature. The 3 picture sizes also produced fabulous pictures. The Preview screen, on the back of the camera, came in handy for viewing the picture right away to make sure I got the shot I was after. I also like that I can set the date, time and event to print on the photo. I love this camera so much that I am trying to find one for several members of my family.

5-0 out of 5 stars What I've Been Looking For!
I absolutely love this camera! I was considering a digital camera but wasn't impressed with the clarity of the pictures, and yet I really wanted to send pictures to family via e-mail. This camera gives me the best of both worlds and for a lot less money!
My husband and I have three children and I also am a licensed day care provider and I take a LOT of pictures on a weekly basis. Two of my day care parents are already considering buying this camera after seeing the pictures it takes, and how easy it is to handle.
Being able to see the picture after you take it is wonderful! If someone steps in front of you, you can tell right away and don't have to waste money getting a picture developed you know you don't want. On the other hand, the pictures that you see that you know Grandma and Grandpa are going to want a copy of, you order a few extras of just that picture!
I also do a lot of scrapbooking, and this camera is a life saver! When I have all three boys in a picture, I can get three of just that one for each of their scrap books.
I have gone through four rolls of film with this camera, and I haven't had one picture that had even a hint of red eye in it. I just can't say enough about this camera! I absolutely love it! I was crushed when my other camera "died" on me and I had to get a different one. I've gotten over it! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Update on this camera
Ok, I took this camera to Key West and Mexico and found that the quality of my photos were "OK" meaning they weren't exceptional like my old Nikon Zoom Touch. The pictures weren't as clear as Nikon quality is. Even though I had used the HD Kodak film. I'm still on my regular role of Kodak 400 film, so I will update again. Usually with high end cameras you get high quality photos and crisp pictures but not with Kodak HD film in this camera. The pictures were grainy and not sharp quality, but... it might be the film I used on my trip so you'll have to wait for and update.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very fuzzy closeups!!!
I bought this camera for my daughter for her baby shower and am very disappointed. It is not up to par for the Nikon name. Point and shoot quality very nice, BUT any close shots taken were very fuzzy!!! Not good when shooting pictures of a newborn baby! Every roll developed had poor quality pictures of her.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Satisfied
My Canon Sure Shot was the best camera I ever had. After a few years, the flash wouldnt recharge. I purchased the Nikon based on the new lenses claiming high clearity. I havent seen the clearity. Delays from the focus feature is another disappointment. If given the choice again, I would purchase the Canon Sure Shot and pay the difference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, compact, point and shoot
I tried the Pentax 130, the Canon 115u, an Olympus Stylus 120 all with the same result... a trip back to the store with a camera to return. The Pentax took great pictures, but had horrendous red-eye issues. The Canon had red-eye issues and the pictures seemed dark and underexposed. The Olympus Stylus was nice, did not have red-eye problems, but too many of the photos came out fuzzy and seemed slightly out of focus. And to be fair I developed the photos from all of the above at the same place. Since I liked the Olympus, but wasn't pleased with the results, I bought the Nikon Lite Touch 130, which has a similar body style to the Olympus with the sliding front cover and pop-up flash. The pictures I took with the Nikon Lite Touch 130 were very clear and in focus, had minimal to no red-eye, and were the most color-accurate of any of the cameras I tried. The photos I took with the zoom also turned out great. Note: using zoom over about 90mm on distant subjects will probably produce somewhat grainier photos unless you use a tripod and at least 800 speed film. The main reason I like a higher zoom is so you can zoom in on a subject which is fairly close and in focus, while at the same time achieving a blurred background effect. Also, to be fair all these little point and shoot cameras have a fairly long delay before the picture is taken for two reasons: ONE - It takes a moment for the camera to focus on the subject, and TWO - if you use the red eye reducer at all, it takes another moment for the red eye reducer to activate before the picture snaps. I am a perfectionist and know what I want to see. I'm finally seeing it with this camera. The Nikon Lite Touch line is a little more spendy than comparable brands, but well worth the money in my opinion. I would highly recommend any of the Nikon line, particularily the Lite Touch 130 and Lite Touch 150, for their superb optics, focusing cababilities, and accurate color matching.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Shots!
As I have always trusted Nikon. This is the best camera that I have owned since my other Nikon Zoom Touch 400 got to big to carry around. I hated to give up my old camera but this one was the smallest and less bukier camera that I have. I even had to hunt down a Nikon case for it, since no one on the web had the right case for this model. I also searched for the remote that was optional and it wasn't cheap ($25) so I said, "don't really need it". I am a litte concerned about the way cameras are being designed, I don't like the sliding cover as you know things wear out in time. So I am keeping my old camera for back up. Because the sliding cover shuts it on/off, what happens when it wears out. It's hard to find a dependable camera out there with the features and quality that are supposed to be in the camera. I love Nikon but I think the quality of camera is being ignored. ... Read more

The elegant, easy-to-operate Canon Sure Shot Z155 makes shooting all of life's precious moments simple. The world's smallest 4.2x zoom 35mm camera, the Z155 features a powerful 37-155mm lens and Canon's three-point autofocus and autoexposure system, built-in Light Guide zoom flash, and seven-mode Best Shot Dial.

Canon's Best Shot Dial provides seven shooting modes for pinpoint control for tackling even the most challenging situations. Modes include close-up, portrait, action, and night scene. And when you want even greater individuality, you can set and save your own shooting preferences with the personal mode.

The Sure Shot Z155 incorporates a passive seven-point switching-type artificial intelligence automatic focusing (AiAF) system, which allows the user to clearly view and sharply focus on the subject in a wide variety of conditions. The focusing and metering systems are linked to the zoom, ensuring virtually the same focal range for both wide angle and telephoto shooting.

It can handle all light conditions from sunny to dark, and when shooting night scenes, the slow-sync mode makes sure background illumination also gets captured. The camera's viewfinder also incorporates a dioptric adjustment knob, increasing the usability of the camera for users wearing glasses.

As an extra feature, certain models have the possibility to add captions like "Happy Birthday" on the finished photographs. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera ,highly recommended!
I was surprised to read all the negative reviews about the canon z155. My own experience with this camera has been basically positive. Since purchasing the camera 7 months ago, the majority of my prints have been sharp, clear, colors bright and true to life. The only drawback i can think of is the pictures do tend to blur when using full zoom without a tripod. I dont think this is specifically Canon's problem, though, because photography books all recommend using a tripod when using a high zoom. At 155mm, one needs a very steady hand or the pictures blur. When I do use a tripod, even my pictures at the highest zoom come out crystal clear. I'd recommend this camera anytime!

2-0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent
Although my canon rebel SLR is incredible and we've had great canon's before, this one is very disappointing and inconsistent. I've had the same problems as others with blurry pictures and delays in taking photos after pushing the button. I'd recommend finding another camera or upgrading to a SLR from Canon (though pricey).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera - Fun Features - Excellent Pictures
Bought this camera in a pinch as our old one broke two days before Christmas. Didn't get a chance to read the reviews here first (and I'm glad I didn't or I probably would not have bought it!). I quickly snapped a roll of 24-exposure film to try the camera out and see if we wanted to keep it.

The pictures came out BEAUTIFULLY! I took some indoors, some out. Some with the fully automatic point-and-shoot, and expermimented with the potrait mode, sports action mode, and night mode. They all came out fantastically!

It's like having two cameras in one - a fully automatic no-brainer point and shoot as well as some features that allow you to be more creative and experimental with photography if you want to. Also a great zoom.

Canon must have corrected the issues that some of the eariler reviewers posted, because I did not experience any of these problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst camera ever
I am so glad after seeing the other reviews to know that I'm not crazy- this camera really is awful! The inconsistent quality of photos is dreadful, with many underlit and blurry for no clear reason. I love my other Cannon and wish they would stay away from making such supposedly "smart" cameras.

1-0 out of 5 stars Blurry Pictures!!!
I was very disappointed when I got my film developed from the Canon Z155!! I went to a concert, took 5 rolls of film, and only like 24 pics came out halfway decent...ALL of the zoomed pictures came out blurry, no matter what setting I tried or what speed of film!! I even had front row, and most didn't come out!! Very Very disappointed... I would not recommend this camera if you want zoomed photos! Even the outdoor zoomed pics were not top quality!! ...

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 Simple to use
This camera is perfect for family picnic's, get together's and around the house use. I especially like the fact that is has the date on each picture, although, you have to check to make sure the correct date date is shown. The camera is easy to load, flashes automatically and easy to zoom. Plus it is small enough to carry in a pocket, purse, or backpack. Also perfect for baby showers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great basic camera
Even though digital cameras are all the rage these days -- and I myself have three of them! -- sometimes you do want to use a film camera, especially when you can't carry an AC adapter with you, or don't want to shell out lots of money for extra batteries, to power your digital camera. Also, ISO/ASA 100 film or slower still gives you the best clarity outside of the negative and professional realms.

This Olympus camera is a great basic film camera -- and it's a terrific value at less than sixty bux. It has the following features that I consider essential on every camera:

-- auto focus. Some very low-end cameras (but this is not a low-end camera!) only have "focus free", which means there's no focus in the lens. Olympus' auto-focus and auto-exposure systems work very well.

-- zoom. Of course, this being a film camera means the zoom is optical. It's only 2x, but if you want more zoom you'll have to pay for it. (The Pentax IQ 145M does provide 4x zoom for under 100 bux, but that camera is also bigger in size.)

-- date imprint. I'm one of those anal types who must document every picture I take. Being able to print the date, while irksome to some people, is a must for me. With a digital camera the photo file has a digital stamp which Windows XP can read (date, time, camera used, size, resolution, image quality, etc.). With a film camera, "quartz date" comes closest to having some extra info on the picture.

-- lens cover. Some cameras don't even come with this!

This camera is also pretty compact and feels right in my hands. The buttons are laid out just right. I find the lens a bit slow in moving in and out but not detrimental to picture-taking in most situations. (I don't shoot sports.) Red-eye reduction works ok but I rarely use it. Flash range is good, but you have to remember that a built-in flash can never do a good job at doing soft lighting.

Picture quality is good with this camera. Assuming you use brandname film like Kodak and Fuji, you'll get pleasing pictures. (If you use a generic brand you got for free at the street corner from a guy in a funny hat, you may be disappointed in the prints... with any camera.) This is really a basic consumer camera, so don't expect lots of fine controls as you can with SLR's.

Some reviewers complain about reliability problems, but from my experience Olympus cameras are some of the most reliable on the market. I haven't had mine long enough to know for sure, but the body seems sturdy and should last a long time.

4-0 out of 5 stars So simple to use....
Quite a gem, Olympus has continued on with its tradition of providing great cameras matched with style and simplicity. I have taken this camera with me in both hot and cold weather, bright and dark conditions, dry and humid areas. It just works wonderfully. The only glitch is that the date printing somehow doesn't quite stand out at times. It also has taken its toll on getting wet, dropping it from 10 ft (slid from my hands while coming down the stairs), and eating dust but still worked great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rugged, Easy to Use, Good Price
At last, here is an all-purpose, easy-to-use camera that provides a variety of built-in accessories. The Olympus Stylus Zoom 115 QD camera is a great find at a reasonable cost. Best of all, the learning curve is short. After 30 years of using a 35-mm Pentax with six exchangeable lenses, and another 15 years of using one of the first one-step Minoltas, I began to look for a simple camera that was lightweight and not fussy.

I needed a camera that could take excellent quality, in-focus shots of my craft booth set up, because show juries demand them. The camera needed to be small, durable, tough, and take the same quality shots indoors and out, with natural lighting and under fluorescent and indoor stadium lighting. If the same camera could take some close ups of my jewelry so I could scan the shots and send them to clients to give them an idea of a design, so much the better. And I didn't have a lot of money to spare, either.

After some in-person and on-line research I decided on the Olympus Epic Zoom 115 QD. I read through the instruction book once. I made one mistake loading the film (if you don't load it right the first time, don't push "rewind" -the tail end of the film will be sucked into the roll). That was it. My first roll produced some good shots and some excellent shots, and the second roll had no throw-away shots. The variable focus provides a lot of flexibility. No red eyes on flash, not even on the cats. No complaints. For the price, snap this camera up.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Camera with a Great Telephoto Lens
The camera is compact, solid but light, and very easy to use. The images are very good to excellent. All the features seems to work just fine. The telephoto lens really brings images in. Its relative resistance to water-spray helps with boating photography. So far it has worked without a hitch. Though I own a digital camera, I believe that a film camera like this is still preferable for travel or for taking many pictures in a short time. All you have to do is plop a new film in and keep going, and then drop it off for development and you will end up with photos that will not fade out in a few years. I highly recommend this Olympus for an uncomplicated way of handling photography in an economical fashion and ending up with excellent results.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Recommended
I loved the features on this camera when I first purchased it. However, on only the 2nd or 3rd roll of film, I noticed the pictures (particulary the zoom pictures) were fuzzy. Olympus diagnosed the problem as the lens being off center. Now only 2 years later, the lens cover has broken off and the motor is not working properly. I am now looking for a new camera, but definately not an Olympus.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very nice camera, BUT....
We have bought six Olympus's for our large family of grown children. They are easy to use, relatively inexpensive, and compact. But, they have a major flaw. On three of the six cameras we have bought, the lins cover has broken and this prevents the camera from operating. The authorized service places in Houston Texas say they can not get the parts to repair this product deficiency.

3-0 out of 5 stars Accurate color reproduction, but not very sharp with detail
Firstly let me just say, that I'm slightly confused as to all the different 35mm Fuji 'quicksnap' cameras out there. The 2 that I used were like the one shown here, but a slightly different color. Anyway, on to the review:
The Flash indicator took a while to light up, but we got it going after some persistance. The photos were ok, nothing great though. The results produced fairly natural looking colors, but many of the indoor/nightime shots were slightly blurry and grainy. Many photos appeared under-exposed, like the Flash wasn't bright enough. 3/5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Camera!
Recently I bought 2 One Time Use Cameras. The Kodak Max HQ Camera and a Fuji Quicksnap Flash Camera. After finishing both Camera's I had the Kodak Camera/Film Developed at a Kodak Express, then the Fuji Camera/Film developed at a Fuji Lab. The Results were very different to each other. The Fuji Quicksnap Flash is clearly the Superior Film/Camera. While the Kodak Prints came back slightly blurry with not much color, the Fuji Prints were Crystal Clear with exceptional Clarity and Bright Colors. The Fuji Camera was also cheaper than the Kodak HQ!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fuji Film is taking over
I work in the photo processing world, I am a manager of a high volume photo lab and I must say that Fuji film has taken very large steps to over take Kodak in the film world. From their minilabs, to their digital kiosks, to their one time use 35mm cameras, Fuji film is the way to go. From truer colors, more real film grains, to the obvious less blur, this camera is a wise decision for a one time use camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Razor Sharp Pictures, Nice Colours, I was impressed!!!
After trying several of the other brands of Single Use Cameras on the Market I thought blurry, washed out dull pics were the norm. However, after buying one of the Fuji Camera's on the spur of the moment I was very suprised by the excellent photos it produced. The Twin packs are a great idea as well!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Photo's Turned out Great
Fairly Easy to use, Photo's turned out Clear, Colorful both indoors and out. Apart from having a little trouble getting the Flash to Work it was fine. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80 QD CG offers advanced features and a zoom in a compact package, allowing you to get the close-up shots you want with the portability you need.

While the Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80 is one of the smallest zoom cameras available, it is heavy on styling and great features. Its miniature version of Olympus's signature clamshell sliding case makes it easy to turn the camera on and off, while offering protection against lens scratches. It comes in a good-looking and durable brushed champagne gold case that is splash-proof, so you can shoot pictures in all kinds of weather. The 38-80mm zoom lens is perfect for framing portraits, getting in on the action, and capturing faraway subjects.

The Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80 offers the advanced features of Olympus's larger camera lines, including quartz date and time imprinting and a self timer. The Olympus Stylus Epic also has a whopping six flash modes, including automatic, red-eye reduction, and night scene. It also has a useful Infinity mode, which sets the focus to let you take shots of distant landscapes and other subjects.

The Olympus Stylus Epic is a pleasure to use--it is as small as or smaller than many of the new Advanced Photo System (APS) cameras, but still uses standard 35mm film.

Its tapered design made it easy to slip in a pocket, and since it is little larger than a deck of cards, we found ourselves carrying it everywhere. It's especially nice to have the zoom in such a compact camera. --Walt Opie

Pros:

  • Extremely lightweight and compact
  • Durable construction
  • Wide range of flash options
  • Includes zoom
Cons:
  • Battery compartment is hard to open

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great camera!
Not liking point-and-shoot cameras made it difficult for me to decide to get one for a recent trip overseas. I wanted something light, easy to use, and easy to hide (so as no to look like an American tourist). I decided on this camera because of recommendations by friends, but also took my heavy SLR with me in my carry-on luggage. Then, while abroad I decided to mostly use my little camera due to its size.

I never saw the pictures until I got home and had the photos developed (at a good camera shop). Was I thrilled! They were absolutely great. The colors were bright and true. The details were sharp enough to reproduce by scanner and send as attachments onto emails to my family overseas.

The camera itself I often carried hidden in my purse, but it was always ready. The only time I was disappointed in its performance was when I ran out of film! Of course, that was my fault, not the camera's.

It's so easy to use. Very often I had others taking pictures of me. Generally all they would ask was which button to push. Even the most inexperienced picture taker came up with terrific shots!

I would say that this is an excellent camera for its price. If you get it, you won't be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars STILL A GEM
About a year ago I reviewed this camera and was crazy about it. I haven't found any reasons to change my mind. If anything, I like it more now than I did then.

I just took it along on another vacation (Cancun, Mexico, this time around) and it was the perfect choice. This time I also brought one of my Nikons and a few lenses to use for my more "serious" photography.

Score it 9 rolls of film for the Olympus and 2 for the Nikon. I won't say that the Olympus pictures are "better". What I'll say instead is that since the Olympus was so easy to carry around I found myself doing so more than I would the 10 lbs of Nikon equipment.

Again, I've found that the night flash mode is a beaut. I took a picture of my girlfriend on a pier with the sunset for a background. Using this flashmode, the foreground was filled in perfectly and the background sunset had fantastic color saturation.

I'm still going to use my Nikons as I have for well over 20 years, but maybe not as often.

By the way, I've read a few reviews saying that the Olympus is fragile. I haven't found that to be the case under normal use.

Edited 1/13/04: I just sold mine after three years to purchase a Canon A70 digital.

I guess it's time to move on from the "old" technology and learn something new.

If my A70 gives me as much pleasure as this little Olympus did I'll have it around for quite a while.

3-0 out of 5 stars Sliding door failed after minimal usage, otherwise great
I really loved this camera, but the sliding "door" broke and wouldn't close after only a few months of minimal usage. I don't know if I got a lemon, or what. The camera was never dropped or otherwise abused. I had had another Olympus for years with the same design, that worked great--it's really easy to get quick shots when you can slide off the lens cover and turn on the camera all in one quick motion ; I will most likely try another one even after my bad experience with this one. I hope that they have solved this issue, if it was widespread--at least one other reviewer mentioned the same problem...

5-0 out of 5 stars perfect point and click camera
The size and design of this camera make it ideal for what it is designed for. It takes great pictures in light and dark (though it's better at outdoor pictures) and it fits easily into your pocket. It opens quickly with one hand; no fumbling around with a lens cap. It focuses quickly so you can take a shot from a closed position very quickly.

The only thing worth noting is that this is a point and click camera. If you want to control exposure, shutter speed, etc. or play with macro, this is not your camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Handy Dandy Camera
We purchased this camera to take on a European vacation. It is very easy to use and the pictures, for the most part, turned out well. I only wish I had taken along an old 35mm SLR I've had for 20 years so I could have used a wider variety of lenses. This camera, for all of its capabilities, did a very good job. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Little Versatile Camera
I've taken Photos with these Kodak MAX Cameras a few times in 2001-2002. They Deliver Above Average Results at a Fraction of the Price of buying a $$-$$$ Camera. Depending on where you buy them. Early this Year in Australia, Kodak brought out the KODAK MAX HQ Disposable Camera which I think is supposed to be an Upgrade from the Kodak MAX Cameras. However I wasn't Happy with the Results so I switched back to the Yellow Camera which I feel delivers better Results.

I would love for Kodak Australia to release the UK "Kodak Ultra Compact Flash" cameras here, they look like Jazzy little Cameras that actually could be mistaken for a "real" Camera.

P.S. The Kodak Advantix One Time Use Cameras are also Fantastic, so if you get the chance pick up one of these as well. Great for Birthdays and Trips!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for raves, parties, camping
OK, so no one will mistake the photos for professional ones, but these disposable cameras are great! I take one with me when I go to raves, 'cause I don't want to lose my more expensive camera. Photo quality is quite reasonable. The camera is loaded with fast film, so it works in all light conditions with help from the flash. Might as well activate the flash for every picture, since it makes outdoor pictures look better, too. Plus, when you consider you're throwing away the camera, there's no point in trying to save battery power.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kodak Max
Not a bad camera. Good for indoor and outdoor use. It can be used on days of less sunlight and the pictures will still turnout, unlike other disposible cameras. The max flash is what makes it helpful on not so bright days. It is a great price. Good looking camera. You probobly won't drop it because of the No-slip grip. Built in flash is easy to use, all around the camera is easy to use. The camera is a good buy! ... Read more

This camera takes great photos but you can find it elsewhere for the same price and it will come with a case and battery. Shop elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera
I purchased this camera to replace yet another camera my husband broke. I am sick of spending a lot on cameras and have seen this one for almost twice as much as I paid here at Amazon.com. So I bought it and love it. It is simple to use, has auto rewind, zoom lens and date, and is inexpensive. Not any problems and we take a lot of pictures.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Zoom Camera!!!
This great camera may be small, but it's packed with great features!
The zoom lens is terrific. While I was at my cousin's concert, I could see them up close without moving an inch! Believe me, going from 38mm to 115mm is a long way. I also love the all of the modes. The flash modes are: Auto flash, auto flash with red eye reduction, day-light sync (fill-in flash), slow shutter flash off mode (it uses natural light where flash is not advised), and slow shutter with flash and red eye reduction. The other modes are Infinity landscape mode and self timer (10 sec.) For the price, this is a great camera! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Well, after all it is only a One Time Use Camera!
I was going to a Birthday Party on 15-Nov-02 and decided to take this Camera with me. The Photos turned out a bit Grainy in some shots with not much Colour. Also the Skin Tones looked a bit Pale. I used one of these Cameras last year but it was the "Kodak MAX" One time Use Camera, those pictures turned out better. Unfortunately they have Deleted that line (Well in this country Anyway) of One Time Use Camera and replaced them with this new Kodak MAX HQ Model which I don't think is as good.

5-0 out of 5 stars KODAK MAX HQ ONE TIME USE CAMERA BY KODAK
I PURCHASED THREE KODAK CAMERAS OVER THE FALL/CHRISTMAS TIME AND WAS COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH THE QUALITY OF THE PICTURES. THE BUILT IN FLASH WORKED EVERY TIME AND THE COLORS WERE TRUE KODAK QUALITY IN EVERY WAY.

BUY ONLY AMERICAN WHEN IT COMES TO A TRUE THROW AWAY POINT AND SHOOT CAMERA...KODAK

2-0 out of 5 stars Overated and Overpriced
Unfortunately Kodak seem to spend a small fortune making their Disposable Camera's look Sleek and Trendy. However the Photos always turn out very Average despite being loaded with so called High Quality Kodak Max 400 Film.
IMO Kodak Max 400 Film is one of the worst films on the Market.
I used the Kodak Max HQ a couple of times and was disapointed with the Photos. Grainy, Washed out Colors.
I've yet to try the New High Definition Film, hopefully this Film is slightly better.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this piece of junk!
We bought two of these for our first trip to NYC. The pictures were grainy, washed out and just plain awful. We bought the more expensive cameras thinking the pictures would be even better than the cheaper one time cameras. We were so wrong. I contacted Kodak's customer service and they said it was either the photographer or the developer. Then they generously mailed me a $2 off coupon to buy another. As if I will buy another one of their cameras!! I will never use another Kodak product after the treatment I received from their customer service.

2-0 out of 5 stars I agree with below poster NOT VERY GOOD!!
It's a pity Kodak in Australia aren't as Customer Service Focused as they are with the below poster. I bought a Max HQ Camera and the Flash didn't work, I called Customer Service to complain and they were of no help and wanted me to send the Camera back with a Letter. No replacement, nothing, just attitude!
I've used these Kodak Max HQ Cameras two other times in 2002, The results have been Poor, Washed out Colours, as the Person mentioned below...Poor reproduction of Skin Tones. Hey I'm White, but I'm not THAT White!! Unless Kodak bring out a better One Time Use Camera soon I'm going to start buying another Brand, maybe Agfa or Fuji. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars My pictures don't stink anymore!
I've always used cheap 35mm and disposable cameras. Now that my daughter is growing up and becoming more involved in various sports and school activities I've long wanted to have a serious camera with zoom so I can get good upclose high quality shots. I decided to splurge on the N65 after doing lots of internet research and talking to variety of photographer type folks.

The camera itself is very sturdy and solid, but not extremely heavy. I'm able to carry it around in my backpack all day without discomfort. It's easy to load the film in, but the provided instruction book is superb to get you started. It has a variety of manual settings, but I've pretty much only used the auto setting for everything - and just about all my pictures have come out great. Nice and sharp, with rich colors and just so much better looking than my cheapo camera gave me. It's also nice to be able to zoom in on various subjects. I have a lot to learn about this camera, and will need to find a book to learn it all - but as a beginner it has really served the purpose for me, but I know there is much more I can do with it.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great SLR for beginners and advanced amateurs
I bought this camera four months ago knowing nothing about photography. Now, thanks to my F65, I'm shooting slide films and learning the zone system and continue to amaze ppl with my wonderful pictures. I had a chance to play with the more advanced F80 but besides the faster flash sync offered I'm fully satisfied with my easier-to-manage F65. By "easier" I don't mean any loss in functionalities or features. Advanced features like multiple exposures, depth-of-view preview and auto bracketing are all there inside this compact, light weight body. There's an optional infra red remote for this camera that functions like a cable release which's a must for night and serious photography too. The camera works with all AI and AFS Nikkor lenses. A shutter speed of 1/2000 is more than adequate for all conditions and film pull/push can be achieved by exposure compensation despite the fact that we can't directly manipulate the ISO setting. It's a perfect camera for novices with its automatic modes, and for advanced users with its possible manual settings. The matrix metering is reliable and accurate, the center weighted metering is good for low light or night photography. It doesn't have spot metering, but it isn't necessary anyway as a real professional won't need a on-camera spot meter. So unless you're in need of a faster flash sync for wildlife photography or a more rugged but heavier body, there're really no reasons to go for higher models. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The KB18 Advanced Photo System camera from Kodak features a 35mm lens that captures portrait and group shots. Point-and-shoot simplicity and the automatic flash give you better-exposed pictures indoors and out. The flash also reduces shadows when you are shooting in bright sunlight and reduces red-eye. The sliding lens cover protects the lens from dust and scratches and acts as an on/off switch for the camera.

A bright viewfinder displays the selected picture size and simplifies camera operation. The Kodak KB18 will not operate if it is loaded incorrectly, but you can check if you'd loaded it properly by looking through the film door. You can remove and reload the same film cassette or switch film speed with Kodak's midroll change feature. This package includes a roll of Kodak Advantix color film, two Kodak Photolife AA batteries, and a detachable camera strap.

Kodak offers a one-year warranty on parts and labor for this camera. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Simply Good
I enjoyed using this camera. It takes great pictures and is easy to carry around. my 6-year old daughter uses it also. One correction, the camera uses AAA batteries. I recommend its use to anyone who loves taking family pictures.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great camera
This is a great cheap camera for everyday use. I have had mine for several years and have not had any problems yet. The pictures come out great. I got this camera to replace another Kodak camera I had that broke after about 10 years. I swore I would never buy another kind of camera...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best starter camera
I've been using this for 3 years. Extremely cheap, extremely basic camera with the Kodak quality. Runs for a hundred shots on a set of batteries. After some experimenting on a roll of film, you'll grasp the capabilities of its lens and flash and you'll improve your shots dramatically. Excellent gift for youngsters while teaching them how to choose lighting and subjects and the art of framing one's subject. You'll have no fear of it getting stolen, broken or lost by the child.

3-0 out of 5 stars Just a Basic Camera.
The actual pictures produced with this camera look fine. There is nothing special about the photo quality, and certainly nothing special about the camera itself. You have to advance the film manually. And besides a lens, viewfinder, and flash, there aren't any special features. But if you just want a cheap, basic camera, this one is a good one to go with.
