The kodak dc215 is an excellent digital camera, for anyone on a budget. At a mere £200 (ish) it is not the cheapest, but value for money it is an excellent buy. What I like is the way it looks and feels like a normal 35mm camera, it is slightly heavier but that is not a problem. It doesn't boast the features of some of the more expensive models, but for the average person this is ideal. It was recommended to me by a photographer friend, so it must be good ! When I purchased mine it had a 5mg card in, but the shop gave me a 10mg card free (i whinged about the price, try haggling it works trust me) You can choose the picture quality, I have mine on the lowest quality, so I get more pics on one card. I have uploaded and printed these pictures off onto photgraphic glossy paper and they are excellent quality, not as clear as a genuine photo but they run a close second. For emails and websites they are brilliant, you just snap, upload and its done, all in a few minutes. It has an autoflash, autoredeye reduction, zoom for taking pictures of small objects close up. It takes 4 aa batteries and yes they dont last long, i brought a charger and spare recharge batteries, (saves a fortune). It also has a lcd screen on the back so you can see instantly what you are taking, you can switch this off to save battery power. Review your pics in the camera, close up, delete, add a frame to it.
I would recommend at least looking at this camera if you are considering buying a digital camera, try it out in the shop (i did), compare it with other makes and models, and believe me you will choose the kodak. To me kodak are cameras, a name you know and trust!
