Kodak EasyShare M753

We've given the M753 a grade of F.

Editor's Review

We had hoped the M-Series cameras would breathe new life into Kodak, but unfortunately that has not been the case; instead, the M753 has treated users to terrible image quality and poor reliability.

Once again, Kodak drops the ball. Avoid this camera at all costs.

Kodak EasyShare M753 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Great camera for beginners or those looking for simplicity (Takoyaki — 01/22/2010)
I recently started looking for a better camera (not because of the m753's picture quality, but because of the night photo and video quality) and I decided to compare a few specs and reviews to newer digital cameras. I am shocked by the amount of problems people have had on this blog because I've never had any issue with this camera other than poor night photos and video quality. I have dropped it a few times, too, luckily with no damage. The battery has always been long lasting and I have only used the usb charger for 2+ years with no problem. The daytime photos have been incredible! I moved to Japan with this camera and it has served me very well. I'm just itching for something a little more high-tech ;) By the way, this was my second Kodak digital camera. My first one was a 3 megapixel easyshare (great camera, btw) that lasted me about 2 years before the lens died.

great beginner camera (susan — 10/01/2009)

This camera does have some difficulty with the life of the runs down quickly, but I have had no problems charging it on my pc. As I stated earlier it is a great camera for beginners.....or someone who doesnt want to spend alot of money

Not good at all! (Andrea — 09/30/2009)

We purchased this camera as a gift for a family member overseas, after 6 months the camera just died and would not turn on or charge again! I knew this brand was the worst, but I never thought it would die so quickly!

The worst!!! (joe — 07/30/2009)

If you are thinking about getting this camera, think again, it has terrible quality, the pictures look good when you take them, but when you upload and develop them they are fizzy with bad quality. i recommend this camera for people who are between the ages of 5-8 because it definetly is a begginers camera, but would need to be replaced. wouldnt use it for weddings, or any special moments, including vacations!!

bad quality. (vikki — 06/30/2009)

I decided to upgrade about a year ago and I think the picture quality is horrible! They look somewhat good until you look at them on the computer. The camera I upgraded from still is better than this one and I still use that one more frequently. It does work good tho and the battery lasts a long time I will give it that much... but otherwise... I still think it kinda sucks.

I love this little gem (K. Madden — 06/29/2009)

I've had much more expensive and complicated cameras.
This one is fast to learn, easy to use, compact and does just about everything I need. I have a website and I take jewelry phots and I'm thrilled with it.
I dropped it when open, NOT Something I'd recommend. I was lucky to get it back together again..and know this is a weakness.
I have never read the book . I have never run out of battery time, taking it to Peru this week, now we'll really see !

Kodak...Thanks 4 the Memories (Continental — 05/12/2009)

Had this camera for 2 years with no major problems. Takes decent pictures and had no trouble with USB charging. Since it's not possible to be near a CPU for re-charging I purchased a AC adaptor on EBay. Worked out well since it also fits my MP3 player. On Kodak's web site it shows how to re-charge battery using the USB port.

My main complaint is the on/off camera switch is too small and is flushed with the housing. It should have been raised making much easier to turn on/off.

Picture quality sucks! (Blue — 04/10/2009)

doesn't matter if it is 7 megapixels!! I had a 4.0 megapixels Minolta back in 2004 and it was way better than this one. The Kodak picture quality is very poor. Blurry.....stupid camera.

battery life (catie — 03/23/2009)

i love this camera. except it runs out of battery quickly sometimes. sometimes the battery life lasts a while then sometimes it doesnt. which is really wierd. but i dont know. i love the camera taking options..they are very useful. i think the camera is worth the money. overalll its a good camera. hope this helped :]

Help me charge it. (Jeff Bishop — 02/17/2009)

I can not figure out how to charge it. I have connected the camera to the computer with my USB cable but the camera will not turn on. Good Value until you have to charge it.

impossible to charge (preddie — 01/12/2009)

Its ok from purchase till the battery runs out. Does not charge by usb and you have to locate and purchase ac adapter. Bought it for my daughter going on holiday, battery ran out while on more pictures for the balance of the holiday and the camera just sits. The next purchase was not Kodak.

Used to love it but that changed (Amanda — 01/04/2009)

I have always bought Kodak, my 5 year old point and shoot easyshare has given me no problems but when I upgraded to the M753 it was nothing but problems. My usb cord broke then the casing cracked. No it wasn't dropped I keep it IN A CASE. Then the lens stopped working, had it repaired under warranty. Now at 14 months old my ccd sensor is going. This camera is ONLY 14 months old, why on earth would the sensor be going bad. Called kodak and they told me to pay to have it repaired or send it in for a 15% discount. My foot. I won't buy another Kodak.

Great camara (Aidan — 10/13/2008)

No problems so far bought camera as reconditioned 8 months ago for a very good price.Picture quality good

  • 2.0 out of 5

For my b-day i was supposed to get a nikon coolpix 8.1 megapixel camera, but the day we went camera shopping wal mart was out of them. All they had was this camera. The lighting in the supercenter was just enough to make the pictures convincing. After 1 year of ownership, I regret buying this pos. The quality is dry,grainy,blurry, and even in perfect lighting the pictures are still uncomfortable if you know what I mean. Invest in a nikon, PLEASE!

No problmes so far (loveisreal777 — 09/24/2008)

I have had this camera for almost 7 months and i haven't had any problems with it so far. It charges with USB it came with and takes decent pics. Don't know why there are so many bad reviews. ;)

great camera (candace — 09/10/2008)

camera takes great photos it charges on the USB very wel {dunno why ppl are having problems w/ it} mines n orange glitter its great to carry around very small oly fallback is it dosent take night pics well..ok it dosent take them at all. overall though its worth the can expect a few errors from a camera as cheap as this so i wont whine too much. i expect more problems down the road though..

  • 4.0 out of 5
Good camera! (Kyle — 09/06/2008)

I'm not positive why all the reviews are negative; perhaps because when the camera first came out the price was too high?
I got it for $99.99, and love it. It's got a good feature set, takes clear shots, and it's pretty resilient (I don't batter it, though). The li-ion battery lasts a very long time, and everything the camera does is pretty idiot-proof. It's also an attractive camera, although the slightly cheap feel of the plastic chrome brings it down a bit.
It's not going to replace an slr, and it's not professional quality, but for the price, it's a great bargain.

OK camera (nicole — 08/09/2008)

I love the settings and the quality. The pictures look even better blown up or on the computer rather than the screen. The only thing is I can't get the videos on Windows Movie Maker...Other than that it's great!

M753 (Mark Thompson — 08/06/2008)

Bought camera as reconditioned...I've had NO problems charging through my laptop...picture quality is excellent and is a doddle to use. It's my 2nd kodak camera now

Very Satisified (Molly — 08/04/2008)

I have had this camera for almost a year and I love it. I have the one in purple which is my favorite color so that makes it all the better. The picture quality is great. The only problem is that I never know when my batter is low but I has never died on me. I love this camera and it is worth all that is costs.

Kodak M753 (mamanester — 07/24/2008)

Ive owned this camera for 2 months so I could do some more ebay. Look up my pictures on ebay and form your own opinion. Pictures are blurry and that is not acceptable. No one wants to buy something they cannot see. mamanester is my name on ebay. I guess I can try and exchange the camera at office depot. Hopefully I can.

Won't Charge (Mel — 06/25/2008)

I love my camera, it takes really good pictures of good quality but it is always a hassle in charging it. I did not know what the problem was until I read the reviews and other were having the same problem. So if you are willing to buy an AC Adapter then go for it.

Don't waste your money (Kayla — 06/18/2008)

Don't waste your money on this camera. I had the M753 for only 6 months and it got a lens error. The features were good but the pictures were only decent.

Save your money! (deborah — 05/09/2008)

I've had this camera 6 months and each time I've used it the battery goes and won't go back on. DON'T BOTHER BUYING THIS CRAPPY CAMERA!!! I'm getting a new one!

Don't Bother (Amber — 05/08/2008)

This camera worked well for the first month and now for some reason the view screen is blackish/purple/fuzzy and I have NO idea what happened. Too bad I got this for a gift and never got the receipt............

The best EVER, and I've had them all (s masino — 04/12/2008)

I have been through so many digitals since my first in 1998 (six since then - ALL failed in some way-as in will not function), mostly the "best" names also meaning the "biggest" $$$. I was very disappointed when I unwrapped the KODAK for Mothers Day 2007 because I was expecting cheap results to match the price BUT then I got to using it.

1. the internal - rechargable battery NEVER has died - Ive only charged it twice!!!!
2.takes the best pictures almost NEVER blurry - my 3 year old can use it. function goes for ever, has great sound and does not drain the battery
4. light weight
5. cheap enough to have 3 in fashion colors because lets face it - a camera is NEVER where it should be when you need it for those soon-to-be-lost moments - not you can afford to have a couple and keep them around!
6. no effort getting pics off, just plug and play

KODAK - I am a believer!, thank you. I think I will never have to purchase a new camera to replace the ones at the repair shop -ever again!!!!

Cheap Camera (Andrea — 03/22/2008)

I bought this camera for my 12 year old daughter for Christmas and after barely even using it, it stopped working. We plugged in the USB cable and it doesn't even charge. We are leaving for Paris on Sunday and I am glad we discovered it before we left or we wouldn't have any vacation photos. I am taking it back to Target tomorrow.

Camera Does Not Charge with USB Port (S — 03/15/2008)

Don't believe Kodak - this camera will not charge with a USB port. You have to buy the AC adapter. Kodak refuses to accept this as a defect. That's a shame. When working, the camera takes nice pictures and is light weight and easy to use. Fix the USB port charge problem and you have a nice little camera.

Lousy Camera (S — 03/14/2008)

I've had this camera for 4 months and its broken twice. I had to ship it back for repair and lost the use of it for a month. Its broken again now. Lousy camera - buyer beware!

Stupidly misleading (Hiu-yan — 03/03/2008)

8megapixels! Whatever! It's got so many settings for everything, if u don't take it in the right setting then it looks crappy but who's got the time to go through like a 100 settings?! The quality is astonishingly terrible, my old camera had 3.2 megapixels yet the quality was amazing, too bad the battery ran out after just a few pictures. Advice- Don't buy The Kodak M753!!!

This camera doing good at the right hand. (OmegaGamma — 02/26/2008)

bought it few months ago and taken almost 2000 pics till now. most of pic quality just fine. it's about how you take the pic. and last week i drop it at the club when i was drunk, but still the camera doing just fine. everything ok.

Crappy camera (Melissa — 02/21/2008)

ugh this camera SUCKS...ive gone through 2 cameras in 3 weeks and both have had the lens errors...i stick it in my purse and when i take it out, whaddya know, the lens is misaligned. the features are useless and the quality stinks.

tripod needed for perfect pictures (oogamiser — 02/19/2008)

still hand, yeah, the pictures arent of great quality, but buy a tripod and learn how to tweak the settings right and you can take some incredible pictures. it takes some getting used to but this camera is an overall decent camera, the digital image stabilization works well enough in day light at the highest iso setting to get a decent picture, but still recommend a tripod. battery life is good except in extreme cold, video is good, sound quality is good for the camera, no problem charging, no problem uploading pictures, overall this camera can be used to get professional quality pictures with the right touch and tripod if its really needed. my only issue is with the LCD. in sunlight, you cant see the screen very well.

Good features but poor picture quality (Aniket INDIA — 02/12/2008)

Camera is meant for picture taking and if pictures are noise/bad what is the use of all those features in a camera. Picture quality doesn't match its category i.e. 7MP. At ISO priority 200, even out door (on a sunny day) pic are noisy. On auto mode, you may get passable pics. Even image/file size is less than 1 MB at 6MP(3:2) resolution, this is something fishy as my 6MP Sony produces image/file >2MB.

ugh!! it won't charge!!!! (Penny — 02/09/2008)

The USB cord that is supposed to charge the battery doesn't work. I've tried with two or three USB ports to get my camera to charge. I loved the picture quality when it "was" charged but now I've read on the internet that a lot of people have been having this same problem, some solved it by buying an adapter. Kodak should either tell people "You will have to buy an adapter with this product" or simply put the adapter in with the camera instead of the USB hook up! Note to all "camera buyer want to be's" always research the camera first!!!

Great features, poor picture quality. (Dawie Venter — 02/06/2008)

I concur with most reviewers of this camera. I like its compact size, and the various picture taking modes are just great! I especially like the on-camera 3-image stitch mode. The focus-quality of the images however, is just not what one would expect of a 7MP camera. They are not sharp, mostly blurry and there is a lot of “noise” in low light images, even when the flash is used. Daylight images are better, but not sharp enough. I’ve also installed the firmware update, but this has not improved the quality. I suspect a cheap lens, to keep costs down, as the main reason for the camera’s poor image quality. Rather spend your money on something else, the M753 will be a disappointment.

Poor picture quality and customer service response (Bruce Meyer — 01/29/2008)

The camera is advertised as a 7 megapixel and takes worse quality pictures than my phone camera. My two year old 3.1 megapixel Sony takes far better pictures. That will teach me for trusting an American manufacturer's name again. Back to Sony, Fujitsu, whomever.

Kodak m753 (Danny James — 01/07/2008)

Some pictures were of good quality but most were very blury. Certainly not what I would expect out of a 7 megapixel camera.

Yes, Cheap for a Reason (MamaSanyu — 01/02/2008)

I've had the exact same experience as Nick (12/20/07). I'm now looking for a better camera. Most of the pictures we've taken in the past six weeks are grainy—even on the screen. We haven't tried to print any of them yet. What a disappointment.

Great Camera (Chris — 12/26/2007)

Very happy with the purchase of the camera. It is easy to use and produces great pics. My one complaint would be the difficulting in finding info and cables for HDTV hookup.

The camera is cheap for a reason (Nick — 12/21/2007)

I saw mixed reviews about the Kodak M735 and thought i would give it a shot. 99$ seemed like a bargain for a 7 MP camera.

Out of the 68 photos i took, about 5 came out sort of nice, the other ones were gritty and blurry. And no picture looked good enough to print bigger than 2" X 3" let alone the 20" x 30" which it claims to be capable of doing.

Pros: camera looks nice, user friendly, light weight, great menus and features.

Cons: doesn't do what a camera is supposed to do... "take nice pictures"

I returned it.
