Good starter for a new digital owner (Jeff — 05/13/2008)

After using a digital camera as part of my job I knew I had to have one. Back then they were pretty spendy and still working out some things, so as long as I had access to the company cam I held off. When the prices had settled I started looking for a good buy online. This was a refurbished unit at a very good deal so it has been worth everything as a learning camera for me. If I had paid closer to retail on the camera I might feel a little disapointment, but for what I got it for it is still a good camera.

Kodak - I hope you see this (Derek — 11/25/2007)

Bought this for my wife for a Christmas present.Worked great for about 6 months. Then, we started getting messages on the software that the images or software was corrupted - would not download. Then, same as other reviews, camera lens would freeze up , or, the camera would just stop working. This is a very babied camera that still looks as if it were purchased today. It is no wonder that Kodak is on the brink of bakruptcy making products like this. Kodak - I hope you are reading this, because this year a Canon or Sony will be taking up residence at my house this Christmas. The 6440 will now become an expensive "toy" for my 7 yr old. Or, it will become an expensive rifle target if I start feeling a little irrational.

Great camera for the first year (carrie — 06/04/2007)

I loved this camera for about the first year. It was easy to use and took great pics. After the first year the display screen would not come on automatically. Year 2 it would not keep the charge for very long. Year 3 it died, lens stuck open and all. Very sad!

Great while it lasted (Fred — 02/15/2007)

After reading a bunch of reviews, I see that my my experience is absolutely typical. Great pics, easy-to-use. But - - the red battery-holding clip broke in 2 weeks. Then the battery hatch got loose - I had to tape it shut. Still took great pics. Then, one day, 2 1/2 years out - it stopped working and will cost over $100 plus shipping to (maybe) fix it (maybe). No more Kodak products for me !

It was Excellent, until it "died" (Louis — 10/10/2006)

This camera was an excellent camera that took amazing pictures, usually good videos, and was a pretty good camera overall. Took it on vacation, parks, family occasions, etc. Never dropped or stepped on it, etc. It died a few months ago out of no where. I am at home wanting to take a picture, and suddenly it shuts off, the lens stuck out. I tried to turn it on and off, with no success. New batteries, tried to charge it, and everything. Nothing would work. Finally, it turns on again after a week of trying. It takes a picture, freezes, and then does the same thing. It hasn't worked since. :( A good buy, yet short life.

Dead for no reason (Robin Kaufman — 09/22/2006)

I have loved this camera for 2 years. Using burst in sport mode I have taken some great action shots of friends sword fights in my reenactment group. Not blurry at all. I've even taken great non-blurry shots from my driver side window while driving at 50-60 mph. But while driving from Florida to Washington State this summer the camera died in South Dakota. I had been recharging the batteries in a recharger plugged into the wall in the hotel room every night. Proper Kodak batteries correct for the camera. The batteries were newly bought for the trip. In S. Dakota I turned the camera on to take a shot out the car window and the camera shut right off again. At the next rest stop I switched to my backup non-rechargeable batteries and same thing. I turned it on, got the set date screen, set the date and the camera shut itself off. Tried to turn it on again and it wouldn't even turn on. Now I'm a heavy camera user. It seems like the camera is sucking all the juice out of the batteries. What a shame. I'm not buying Kodak again. No more rechargeable batteries for me to leave me stranded. Give me a camera that uses plain old AA batteries.

low battery signal (julia — 08/28/2006)

ummm, how disappointing, I had googled this model hoping NOT to see that my problem is amongst a host of others, needless to say I won't be expecting Kodak to answer my email any time soon. My camera was going so well, great image quality etc but now when I switch it on all I get is a low battery signal and it turns itself off after a few seconds and I am told it will cost around AUD$200 to fix, no thanks.

Poor durability (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Found this place when searching for tips to fix this camera and noticed that I'm not the first one to say "Nice camera while it was working"
Compared to our first Digital Camera (Minolta) I liked the following features on this Kodak:
- detection of landscape hand horizontal pictures
- continuous/unique numbering of the shots
- Macro (close up) possibility

But our old Minolta is still working fine while this one just stopped working. Lens was left half way out and camera shows no signs of life even though we have kept trying with new batteries etc.

Somehow I expected a camera to last longer than 2 years but maybe that is just the way how things are nowadays?

durability not good (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I loved this camera but it just didn't last. The battery compartment door broke and I tried to tape it shut. Then the zoom stayed frozen out and I couldn't even get my pictures out of it. I would not buy this camera again.

Dead Camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I loved this camera. Now I know it was a one sided affair. The Kodak company needs to be sued for allowing this product to be sold on the market. The same as every single review I have ever read. Wonderful until it just stopped working. Kodak is no help.

Great quality for the price paid (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I got this camera about 3.5 years and still am using it. It has withstood 3 international trips, and is still going strong.
The quality of the pictures is great!!
I am quite happy with the video snippets as well.

Very expensive DISPOSABLE camera! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Do not buy this camera. Mine lasted a few months after the warrany expired and then froze up. Kodak gave me the royal run around and did'nt seem to care about my problem. In the end it Cost more to repair than its worth so I am left with a very expensive worthless disposable camera. So buyer beware!Don't make the same mistake I did. Steer clear from this camera it is a LEMON.

Excellent Quality for the Price (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have been using the Kodak DX6440 for two years now without any problems and I've taken over 4000 pictures. I have to say the quality is great for what you pay for. Sure, I could have bought a more expensive camera but I wanted a point and shoot with good quality when I was in the market to buy. I have not been disappointed and It is working as well as the day I bought it. Yes you can buy a better camera but you will pay more. This camera has probably been discontinued so my review most likely doesn't really matter but I have been very happy with it. This is a solid small 4.0MP camera that works well and takes great pictures.
I love this camera - I'm sure you will as well.

Battery compartment cover (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This has been a great little camera as far as quality of photos. However, a very small corner of the cover to the battery compartmentbroke off, and the cover will not stay closed. Taping it does not help - the batteries pressing against the cover still force the cover open. Also-the lens cover does not always retract properly when the camera is turned on, causing missed shots. I would not buy this camera again.

It is made for printing pictures on a photo paper (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

First I must say that there is not many dig. cameras that have a zoom lens as the DX6440 (4x optical, 3.8 digital), second the "KODAK COLOR SCIENCE" has been made for a reason in my opinion, that the pictures taken are then printed on a photo paper which come out excellent, let's not forget that Kodak was first originally a company for photo films and photo paper and I must add that the lens(Schneider-KREUZNACH) is one of the features that make this camera so good. This camera is made for avarage photographers that use their camera for everyday in making colorfoul and sharp memories and is in her price range on of the best cameras. And handling the camera in a normal way, the camera will last you for 3-5 years.

not made for everyday use (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

We purchase as a gift. But currently out of commission. We purchase all the bells and whistles.memory cards,carry case and easy printer station 6000. Now looking for a repair outlet. For how much we invested did not last long. This is our second digital Kodak really liked DX3600. I wonder if I will get another Kodak next time.

Flimsy battery cover, poor indoor shots (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I was really happy with the camera but I've had a rubber band around it for a month since a piece of the battery cover broke off. As I use my own rechargeables instead of the dock, I open and close the battery cover frequently. I also have the same problem mentioned by others regarding the stuck lens. Finally, the camera is not good in low light situations (indoor). I have two Sony cameras that do much better indoors.

use for business and other, works wonderfully, never worry (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Have had this one at work for 2 years and on the rechargeable battery it came with, we literally never worry about running out of power. The boss will have it away from the power dock for one-three weeks and takes as many pictures as he needs without it running low. The photos are wonderful quality and the camera is super-easy to use. I'm sure we haven't even scratched the surface of its capabilities as far as manual settings. I'm amazed at this camera. It was darned expensive at the time, though.

Durability is BAD!! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have taken over 1700 pictures that are great except for the action shots which are no-goes because of the way to slow reaction time of the camera. BUT, the camera is no seriously crippled because the little flap that holds in the battery has broken due to excessive pressure exerted by the battery. Simply, the battery compartment is slightly too small for the Kodak battery!! Now I have to duct tape it shut, but the pressure of the hinge keeps the flap slightly open disconnecting the circuit. It is a real trick to keep one finger on the flap while;e taking a picture.

It was great but lasted me less than a year & now in my Junk Yard (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

The Camera lasted me less than a year & all warantee statements were farce. The camera was sent one one place to another & I offered even $200.00 to have it fixed as it was the Internal memory failure but no goo. I feel we must stop buying Kodak Cameras. SAD but true.

Action Photos not recommended (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I am highly unhappy with this camera. My Kodak DC240 2.0MP out takes this camera on shots that require the sports setting...I get a big blur most of the time. Although when it takes good pictures they are normally very good.

Good pix, but has been in for repair twice. (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This camera takes great snapshots. I took some really nice pictures (portrait style) too. It is NOT for anyone wanting to take pix of their kids sporting events. There is a shutter that closes over the lens when you turn the camera off. I have had my camera in for repair twice because the shutter won't open when I turn on the camera. You have to pry it open with a fingernail, and risk scratching the lens. Then it fails to close when the camera is turned off. It is on its way for visit #3 because the problem is happening again.

Good things come in small packages (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Without repeating what others already said: We took the little "Camera that Could" on vacation and came back with zero (0, zip, zilch, no) blurred pictures. I love it! Unfortunately, I dropped it on the last day and am now shopping for a replacement, which will not be a matter of model, but rather price.
I swear by the Kodak DX6440.

Durability not so good (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I've had the DX6440 for 11 months. I really liked it - until it broke. Now, when I turn on the camera the lens opens and extends and then freezed in that position while that camera shuts down with the lens extended. That's all it will do, and it is totally non functional. I didn't drop or bang it, and I have no idea why this happened. I now have to send the camera in for repair. Given that I'm not a heavy user, I'd have to say that I'm no longer impressed with the camera.

Sharp pictures (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This was my second digital after being dedicated to film for longer than many. This one has great sharp pics and easy to use functions. Battery life is also good. Love those AA's!!!
Unfortunately, someone else loved it too, and it was stolen! Now shopping for another.

Going to upgrade (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Review based upon relatively intelligent, however, nonexpert in digital photography.
Very easy to understand functions
Applications very easy to operate
Existing application software handled download just beautifully (i.e., no need to install included software)
Close ups, stills within 10 ft, and 25ft shots (all with preexisting and excellent lighting) worked extremely fine.
Movie mode worked well.
Lens slow even in 'sports' mode (e.g. when taking pics of daughters during gymnastics I had to anticipate their movements and engage shutter 1-2 seconds prior to their movements in order to capture wanted image - VERY DIFFICULT!
Because of the above I wanted to use sport mode all the time as it provided best shutter speed for capturing anything moving, even the slightest movement, however, you won't be able to use this function if you need to use the low light function or distance, or any other function as the functions operate solely individually. This is the one drawback of the unit I've discovered and unfortunately, I believe it to be one I never wanted to encounter.
Movie playback works well, however, as the camera isn't equipped with firewire you will have to transfer movies to vidcam and then download to your system (somewhat time consuming).
Auto (only) focus sounds nice until you come to realize you wish you had a manual override when you want one.
Objective review:
It's strongest feature, simplicity, is the one feature which prevents it from being a very nice camera (e.g., you can't use a fast shutter speed (sport mode) in low lighting. I would not have purchased this after reviewing the owners manual as I would have noted this dichotomy, it was a 'compulsion' buy of my girl friend who says she'll take it back and get something better - I can't wait.

Pretty good pictures, but battery holder breaks easily (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

The Kodak DX6440 with EasyShare 6000 printer makes great pix (anonymous — 07/18/2006)
The pictures from the printer/dock are photo quality. The picture quality is great when using the optical zoom, but is decreased with digital zoom. The reason I chose the Kodak DX6440 with the 6000 printer/dock is that it was the best camera & printer combo for the price.
