I recently went thru the exercise of buying a digital camera ... I'm a totally nontechnical point & shoot kind of photographer, but I have studied a smattering of photographic technique, and I knew enough not to believe the reviews posted by people trying to sell them.
I read a bunch of independent reviews, and Kodak never seems to measure up well on those. Another issue is always the first question for Linux users. Will it work with my computer? If it's not on this list,
I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.
I was buying 2 at the time, one for me and one for my son. Wound up with a Canon Powershot A530, and a Canon Powershot A540 ..., and I am mighty pleased with myself.
