The Kodak Advantix F350 is a small camera which does the job of a camera, take pictures!

It has all the basic features that are needed for taking pictures:

-Flash
-Timer
-Viewfinder
-On/Off slider

As you can tell it sounds pretty rubbish but it is actually very good for someone who doesn't know how to use gadgets and new technology.

Film

∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆

It uses Kodak Advantix film which is different to normal film because you just but it in and you don't need to wind up or pull out anything. This film cost's around £6.99 for 30 exp. This is more expensive than normal film but the difference in picture quality is minimal.

Battery
∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆∆

It uses a CR2 battery (yes I have never heard of them as well) which is longer lasting than usual batteries. It is fatter than a usual battery and is about 1 inch or 25cm long. The diameter is about 14mm. This battery cost around £2.65 for a Panasonic or £4.29 for energiser. A Panasonic AA battery cost's around 75p which is considerably less than the CR2.

The picture quality is good but not great but compared to other camera's it is nearer to the top than bottom. The camera is easy to use and understand. It has 3 buttons and 2 sliding buttons. It has a button to:

-Take a Picture
-Set the timer
-Rewind the film

Sliding buttons for:

-To turn it ON/OFF
-To change the mode from indoor to outdoor or cloudy

The lens is 24mm and has a plastic cover, which breaks very easily. As you can see on the picture the sliding button on the front is to turn the camera ON/OFF and to uncover the lens. The flash is good and points at the right thing but is too bright? I mean that when your photos are printed you can see large blobs of white.

Also the camera is very weak and breaks easily. the outer layer on the front chips and breaks easily.

The camera also has a timer which is only set to 10secs nothing else. When the timer is on a red light is shown on the front of the camera. If you look at the picture the light is below the screen and to the left of the flash. it is in that big patch of black.

Overall I think this is a great buy and a very simple camera to use.

I recommend it for someone who just needs a camera to take pictures and nothing too fancy. It is great for grandmas! I gave it to mine and she is thrilled because it is so easy to use.

As per below, but a good basis for a very good review ! ;-)

I would have liked to have known what comes with the camera, and what the lens is like and whether it has a protective cover built in or not, and also how accurate the flash is and what the settings on the front of the camera were for.
