I bought myself an APS camera about a year ago and opted for a Kodak one.
I did this because Kodak are well known for film so I presumed they make good cameras too.
It is a nice looking camera. Finished in Silver with a retractable zoom lense, it looks a lot more expensive than the £100 I spent on it.
The corners are very smooth so it sits nicely in your hand and is about the size of your average compact 35 mm camera.
It is also a very lightweight camera for its size.
Film auto winds as with most modern cameras so there is no chance of forgetting to do this.
It has a built in flash for when you are snapping in low level light and a point and shoot action. Basically it automatically focuses on whatever you point it at. There is a little box on the viewfinder that you aim with. Press the button to take the picture half way and it whirs and flicks in and out to get a crisp shot from any distance.
With APS you have the choice of 2 zoom setting for either normal pictures (30mm) or wider, group pictures (60mm) remember, it will use up more of the film in the camera if you continuously take the wider shots.
However, I have found that the picture quality is often poor and this is not down to the user.
Point and shoot is very good on some cameras. My Olympus IS3000 will snap as soon as you focus on an image. This APS camera does not. It spends forever zooming and focusing and can never make its mind up as to when it is focused. Forget action shots, it just wont focus in time.
A big drawback in the APS world is the price of films. They are nearly twice the price of normal 35 mm film and can prove expensive. You may also find yourself limited as to where you can take your film for processing. I dont find that the benefits of choosing my style of picture are as great as first thought. How often do you need to take panoramic shots?
I dont reccommend this camera at all. In fact, you are much better off with an automatic 35 mm standard camera for this money. It will be highly superior.
