So, the DC215 doesn't come with a hefty price tag, but that in no way reflects it's capabilities, customers are bound to be happy with this amazing bargain that KODAK boasts to the digital camera market. It's interesting to compare the DC215 up against other, more expensive, and apparently more 'advanced' cameras. Sure, picture quality isn't great, but people who just want to take the odd digital holiday snap aren't going to need anything more. Kodak provides you with everything from the 4 AA Batteries to a TV out connector lead. TWAIN support is something KODAK have focused on in the DC215, the cameras software allows you to directly download images from your camera (via serial cable provided) onto your pc in a flash, with it's unique windows explorer style environment, which you can access from 'My Computer'. The DC215 features include, picture reviewing, viewfinder, red eye-reducer flash gun, TV out capability, ZOOM in/out, different levels of quality and timed capture modes. If you're into a bit of personal photography, and are looking for a cheap yet adequate digital camera, the DC215 is the one for you.
