- a bit hit and miss, really.
I did a bit of research on this camera before making the decision to buy it. Apparently I just didn't do enough.
At 10mp, the quality is disappointing. I've had cameras that were perhaps 4mp and yet they still took sharper, clearer photos. As much as I play with the settings, and no matter how steady the photo is or how careful I am in paying attention to the lighting, I still find it falling behind my first Kodak from 1998. This is not a good thing, in the least.
It is also very fragile! I had to send in my first one for a broken lens when it slipped out of my hand and hit the table, even though I had the wrist strap on and the fall was perhaps a few inches.
On the bright side, it is extremely easy to navigate, and focuses very well, even if the quality isn't as wonderful as I had been hoping. All in all, it is a fairly good camera for its price, and beats out most other digitals in its price range. However, I think I'll do a bit more review reading the next time I buy a camera -- and probably go crawling back to Nikon for the quality/durability combo I desire....more info
- Great and Affordable Camera
The Kodak Easyshare is one of the best cameras out right now and it's affordable. I have a friend that has he V803 and i purchased the V1003 from Amazon and they are both great Cameras I would recommend this camera to anyone. ...more info
- Fantastic consumer camera
This is a great camera for the average consumer. Probably one of the better consumer level cameras. If you want anything better, you're going to have to spend more money on a professional camera.
I received the camera as a wedding present to replace my 5 year old Kodak Easyshare 4MP camera.
I am very pleased with this gift.
The video mode is very nice. I like how it will automatically focus to deal with lighting issues.
The quality of the video is also very nice. Obviously not as clean and crisp as a digital camcorder, but still very nice for a camera.
The images are very, very excellent, as stated above. I love the variety of pre-set modes that come included with the camera. No longer do I have to mess around with the ISO or shutter or lighting settings. The modes automatically do it for you. Though you may need to tweak the settings a little bit to your liking. Though, make sure to change back the settings when you are done with them, otherwise your pictures will look different. If a mode is selected and you turn it off, the next time you turn it on it will be back in the default Auto mode.
I also love how the camera plays sounds whenever there's an error or something else happens. THankfully though, you can turn the sounds off if you don't like them.
The only tiny nitpick I have about this product is the battery. The battery works quite fine. It has a long life. The only thing is it is Kodak's own proprietary battery. You cannot use AA's or AAA's you already have. You have to use their own Lithium battery. Again, it really isn't a problem, just a tiny nitpick. Thankfully the battery is very long lasting and charges up fast. From an empty batter to full charge is only 90 minutes or so.
All in all, this is the best consumer level digital camera I've ever had, and I've had quite a few. It is easy, lightweight, and provides excellent pictures and settings....more info
- A little homely looking, but a great camera!
I just ordered this camera, and so far its perfect for me. I'm not an avid photographer, I just wanted a cheaper, decent camera that was small enough to keep in my purse. I really like how it comes with a recharable battery instead of needing double A's all the time like cameras I've owned in the past.
To me, the look of the camera is a little goofy and unfortunately, the booklet it came with is not helpful at all, but other than that, its great! ...more info
- Fun product
I have not used this camera much yet, but it's very easy to use and transfer pictures. Lots of great features! I'm not a girly girl, but I love the pink - very cute!!...more info
- Fragile LCD... Watch out..
Nice one but ....
After 3 month light use, this camera has a crack on the LCD. I don't remember to drop it or hit it with something, but always within my pocket if I carry it. It is useless now. Still function but can't see the picture. Search internet for the LCD replacement and found some complain about how fragile this LCD was. Always a little bit late to catch the quality...There is a poor guy broke his second V1003 LCD. Not me for sure. Maybe a design issue..I will pay attention on the quality next time. You need to buy a protection case and good luck......more info
- A great little camera
I bought this as a last minute gift for my 18 year old niece. She loves it. She loves the color, the matching accessories, and most of all she loves the pictures that she's been sharing.
I like my DSLR, but for a point and shoot, this one is pretty good....more info
- Lots of MP for cheaper, you get what you pay for.
I'm torn about this camera.
On the one hand, it has really nice picture quality: really brilliant colors with enough light and lots of MPs for the price. Then again pictures tend to run a bit blurry at times and the response time button-to-capture lags a bit.
Overall I'm really happy with the pictures. This camera is a nice fit for what I need: I don't take photos often, and when I do I like doing artsy quiet shots. If you're more on-the-go and need higher performance, go with a CANON.
AUDIO CLICKING ON VIDEO FEATURE: Videos will have a clicking noise in the audio. It wasn't until I read another Amazon review that I discovered this happens because of the Auto Focus feature. Thankfully it's stopped since I've turned the feature off. Absolutely annoying design flaw....more info
- Nice Little Camera
This is a nice little compact camera. The picture quality has been very good, but I wish it had a view finder. It is sometimes hard to compose pictures using the screen alone....more info
- Awesome Camera---well worth the money.
I had purchased the V803 back in march of 07 and was super happy with it. just the fact that it comes in purple was awesome enough for me. the actually picture taking was super clear and crispy. all the features are super easy to use.
but then my friend dropped it and all the pictures that were taken after that were blurry. so i ended up needing another one. so i purchased the V1003 Which i might add is the one i originally wanted back then anyway. But i got it. and it works exactly the same, has super crispy pictures, very easy navigation. i absolutely love the camera.
i even bought one for my mom for mother's day b/c she kept griping about mine, so i finally got her one. she always had crappy cameras in the past and i believed she deserved it. she's beed using it non stop and has had no bad experiences yet.
i would highly recommend this camera to anyone who wants a digital camera, its a great product and im VERY happy with it. i would just suggest not dropping it. :)...more info
- Great little camera

- Product Review
The camera is compact, fairly light and easy to use, and takes high quality photos. I think the camera is a good value. Negatives: doesn't dock to an older Easy Share version I had; the software takes longer to start than older version; I miss having a viewfinder, this camera just has a view screen; battery cover slips open fairly easily if you hold it with a pincer grip; camera body fairly slippery, could use some coarse grip surfaces. Overall satisfied, but things I would change, and wish I had considered beforehand. ...more info
- Wish I Had Returned It
Kodak EasyShare V1003 10MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Midnight Black) You cannot use the anti-blur mode with any of the other modes. It seems very sensitive to movement. If you use the anti-blur mode and want to take a close up (or any other 20+ modes, e.g. landscape, sport), you are out of luck for anti-blur. I find this really annoying. I'm certainly not going to carry around a tripod for everyday, ordinary pictures. ...more info
- I like my camera
The camera is great, and the pictures turn out awesome! I have gotten so many compliments on the physical appearance of it. The only thing I am not so fond of the camera about it when i press the shutter button, it focuses itself and then flashes. So, for me it is too much of a delay when taking the picture. Other than that I love the camara and the quality of my pics....more info
- Great product, great price!
This camera is excellent just as described. The price was also excellent for the features it has. The only thing is I really wanted a pink camera and the color is listed as pink rose but the pink should be called sheer pink because the color is barely there. Other than that I love it!...more info
- Kodak Easyshare V1003 [Steve Sap Review]
This is basically the big brother to the Kodak Easyshare V803. This is a great camera. It's beautiful, sleek and small but i pack's a punch. 10 mega pixels comes out beautifully. So if you want something small and compact that take beautiful picture this is the camera to get!
Picture Quality= 10/10
Video Recording= 7/10
Media Interface= 10/10 [easy to use]...more info
- pros and cons
Yes, It's 10MP, very clear. But, I also experienced the problem of some buzz with the button. And, it seems that I need to learn to deal with the weak light....more info
- It stinks dont buy it
We bought this camera for my daughter for Christmas 2007. She used it once, then it sat on a table until she went to use it again, and the LCD screen was broken. It had been a little more than 30 days so I could not return it to Amazon. I sent it away to Kodak to be fixed/replaced and they want to charge me more than half what I paid for the camera to fix a brand new camera. The camera stinks and Kodaks customer service, or lack there of stinks too. I will NEVER buy a Kodak product again. They do not stand behind their product. I would not give this camera any stars but the system made me. We never even got to see one picture from this camera....more info

- Outdoor not indoor
I bought this camera last October. I have been very disappointed with it. It takes great outdoor pictures but for indoor pictures it is a crap shoot. They might look good on the screen but once downloaded too often they are blurry or grainy. The flash can be harsh on the eyes when used, especially with kids and in my opinion make the picture too bright. And not using the flash the pics are worse than ever. I am tired of getting cameras that take great outdoor pics and HORRIBLE indoor pictures. Course I have just been sticking to Kodak easyshare cameras so might be time to change brands....more info
- It`s a great camera.
I so happy with my new camera because it`s more smaller than other cameras and it has excellente focus....more info
This is the fifth Kodak digital camera I have bought and like two others it has needed a major repair after a minimal impact. The warranty is virtually worthless as the contract repair company simply says the damage was due to an impact and there is no recourse. The prior cameras took nice pictures, however this model never did work correctly. The flash often did not work for indoor shots. The Kodak cameras are simply too fragile and this is the last one I will buy. ...more info
