Avoid Kodak Products unless bought on closeout (Mac Schlepp — 12/15/2009)

Replaced LCD screen twice. Screen froze twice and the buttons wouldn't work, lense stuck in the out position, I tried pulling battery - it was stuck, I had to take the camera apart to remove the stuck battery in order to RESET the camera. V1003 Perhaps a good buy if you can buy the camera on closeout brand new for $5.00 (yes, only worth five lousy dollars) Made in China and the rest of the .30 per hour world.

I loved it, but it broke. (Rebecca S. — 11/23/2009)

I don't know why this camera has such a bad review! It was my first digital camera and I puchased in October of '07. I took many wonderful pictures with this camera and had no problems until the screen malfunctioned. Yes, I acknowledge that the LCD screen issue is no small problem, but for the year and a half before my screen blanked I could not have been happier for the price, which was about $160 at Office Depot when I purchased it on sale. I understand how frustrating the screen problem is because I was in Europe with a week to go and no spare camera. However, I was so well acquainted with this camera that most of the pictures I took after the screen went black turned out well. We got a full refund because of the warranty and now I have a canon powershot A100 IS, and wish I could find another V1003.

not a good choice (Vanessa — 10/02/2009)

It just stopped working, would not hold charge, bought a new battery still would not work. Left it alone for a few days, then worked to take only one photo. Don't buy a kodak, worst thing I ever bought!

I love it (Shallin — 08/12/2009)

I have never had AT ALL a problem with this camera. it takes wonderful pictures and it's easy and compact. It's a simple point and shoot. But If you want good results you might actually have to do something and play with the settings.

LCD problem (Toby Smets — 06/23/2009)

I have owned two Kodak V1003 cameras, on both of the cameras the liquid crystal displays broke. The camera takes o.k. pictures in normal daylight, but the quality of the flash pictures and low light pictures is really bad.

WORST CAMERA I EVER OWNED (beth walters — 05/28/2009)

I DROPPED MY FANTASTIC PANASONIC LUMIX CAMERA ON DAY ONE IN IRELAND SO I BOUGHT A CHEAP REPLACEMENT. THIS CAMERA WAS 150 EUROS, EXACTLY TWICE WHAT IT COSTS IN BRISBANE. IT HAS CONSISTENTLY JAMMED UP SINCE DAY ONE, IS SLOW TO FOCUS, THE LIGHT METER IS FAULTY, THE MOVIES MAKING A CLICKING SOUND AND DONT PLAY PROPERLY AND NOW THE SCREEN HAS STOPPED WORKING. IT HATES DAMP, COLD, HEAT...THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THE JAMMING, WHEN YOU TURN IT ON THE LENSE COMES OUT BUT NOTHING WORKS. THE ONLY SOLUTION IS TAKING THE BATTERY OUT AND WAITING AND MAYBE IT WILL WORK AGAIN. I DIDNT GET A WARRANTY IN DUBLIN AS I WASNT RETURNING BEFORE I LEFT IRELAND. DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA. A COMPLETE DUD.

not happy with this camera (Mary — 05/10/2009)

The screen has broken multiple times on this camera already from the smallest bumps or jolts. The first repair was free under warranty, but after that they wouldn't do it and it cost $80 per time it needed to be fixed. waste of money. great with 10 MP, but the camera itself is crap.

One of my favorite cameras! (Matthew — 04/13/2009)

I've shot with Fuji Finepix S-series cameras as well as the Olympus Stylus 1030. The one I still use and have kept is my Kodak. This 'is' a great camera for 'everyday' use. I have produced postcard perfect shots and ofcourse if I miss the light or angle; some not so great photo's. I believe most of these reviews are from people who think the camera will just amazing shots for them. I would surely recommend this camera for the price! My favorite feature is the panoramic stitching. Very easy to use!

I feel like I got ripped off! (Traci — 03/29/2009)

I was so excited to buy this Kodak EasyShare V1003 along with the printer. I went to Walt Disney World with my family, took tons of pictures, came home to print them out and WHAT A DISASTER! Customer Service did not care that the camera and printer were both terrible. I have not gotten a good shot with this camera yet. I am now going to buy the Canon. Good bye to Kodak!

Very Disappointing - Not Recommended (Anne — 02/14/2009)

I purchased this camera last March before going to Key West for a week. I previously owned a Kodak 3.1 MP camera which I loved! However, I was very disappointed in the V1003. It took decent pictures outdoors, but the indoor pictures were TERRIBLE. Even using the flash the pictures turned out dark & grainy. In the 11 months I have owned it, I missed out on a lot of great photo opportunities at a once in a lifetime concert & a couple of weddings for close friends. Very frustrating that my 3.1 MP camera had better quality pics. Also, the sound quality on this was even worse than the picture quality. So if you plan on using the video feature, don't count on anything you'd ever want to watch/listen to again.

The camera does have a few pros: easy to use, tons of photo settings (panoramic was really cool), small, light weight, & good battery life. But what is the point in having these features if it doesn't serve the main function of taking a good picture?

I just found out tonight that my dog got ahold of the camera & broke the LCD screen. I was upset at first, but now I'm kind of relieved that I can get a better camera & stop missing picture opportunities. I think I will invest in a different brand after some research. Which is sad b/c I've always been a loyal Kodak customer. I would not recommend this camera to anyone.

Very good camera (Vince — 11/14/2008)

I bought this camera Dec. of last year to take some photos for a Christmas family get-together. The quality of the photos is outstanding! In fact, I keep the megapixels set to 3.1 and the pictures are still phenomenal. The menu's are extremely easy to navigate through. As far as the issue of cracked LCD screens: Just be extremely careful with your camera. Definitely invest in a case and handle with care, and chances are your camera will be fine. My only real complaint with this camera, like virutally all other digital cameras, is that it should come with more internal memory. But since memory cards aren't too expensive, I would definitely recommend getting one.

Bad LCD Screen (Latoya Larry — 09/15/2008)

I bought this camera in Sept of 2007, left it in a carrying case until I bought a memory card. Took the camera out of the case inserted the memory card and started taking pictures, I was just snapping and I didn't pay attention to the screen until the game was over over, screen was cracked called the company they are not responsible for any damages.

LCD screen cracked twice (J Sontag — 05/24/2008)

Terrible camera! The first one purchased had a cracked LCD screen right out of the box. Walmart exchanged it for another.

The LCD screen on the second camera cracked after only two weeks! It has not been dropped and does not have a scratch on it - looks brand new otherwise.

The review button would sometimes stick. Others have mentioned this problem.

The fold out plug for the charger is an odd design. Trying to find an foreign country adapter plug works for this charger
is a challenge.

Pass on this camera. A waste of money!

Kodak V1003 (Victoria — 04/08/2008)

This camera works very well for snapshots, and candids. I did however have some problems with the "review" button which will periodically stick. Battery life is very good, and camera is easy to use as this is the kodak mission. The V1003 is moderately delicate, so you should take good care in handling it.

Great camera (Jenny — 04/07/2008)

I love this camera, the pictures are wonderful and its easy to use. I also love how quickly the battery charges and that it isn't double A batteries or anything like that. The only problem with it is the screen, I carried it in my purse and the screen got messed up. It still takes pictures, you can still upload them to the computer, you just can't see them on the camera. Its just all gray. I plan on finding a new screen and putting it on however they are hard to find. One person said you could call Kodak and get a new one shipped for $32 and some change and about $15 shipping and handling, I'm just not sure how easy it will be to put it in.

Great camera for everyday stuff (A person — 03/23/2008)

Hey guys-remeber this isn't a professional camera. But it's great for everyday use. 10MP is great, and the panoramic feature is fun. I have had no problems with it whatsoever except the software that it comes with is annoying. It's a lot easier to use a wizard/clicking and dragging. I highly recommend this camera to anyone who wants a nice digital camera.

There's always a catch (Ruth — 03/22/2008)

I bought the camera prior to going on my spring break trip and thought it was a great deal - was priced down at Target from $199 to $100, including all the accessories, the rechargeable battery, adapter, carrying case, mounting dock, CD...all I really had to buy extra was a memory card...however within 2 days I encountered problems, and I sent the below email to Kodak.

Hi, I recently bought a Kodak V1003 from Target and within a week I encountered several problems. The lens would not always return to fit back in the camera, and would make a popping sound, as though it was going to break off. Also the battery did not stay inside it's location and I would have to keep taking it out of the camera and then reinsert it back in the camera, to start charging. Due to these and other complications, I decided to return the camera to Target, in hopes of exchanging it with the same model and brand. I have been informed by Target that this V-Series Camera has been discontinued and they are no longer selling the product. Is this true? I have not been able to find any information on Kodak's website relating to what Target stated to me. I am aware that Kodak has a 1yr limited warranty on the product that I bought. I would like to have a working camera. Please verify if this particular camera has been discontinued. Thank you.

prettty good camera, it has its pros and cons (Michael — 03/06/2008)

i got this camera for my 16th birthday and i would have to say overall i am pretty pleased. the shutter speed really isnt bad its under half a second... one thing i do not like though is how noisy and grainy some of the pictures can get without flash it works best in an outdoor enviorment. my camera stopped connecting through usb, but i am transferring pictures through my memory card.... overall its a great camera for begginers and takes pretty good shots

Awful Sound quality-return at once! (Alec Jones — 03/01/2008)

This camera's sound quality is worse than a webcam and the whole camera is aimed at chicks in High School by being available in candy colors. Despite decent resolution it's not very good and SEVERELY over priced.

The Jury is Stiill Out (Dan — 02/24/2008)

Got the camera 2/22/08 and played with it for a couple of minutes. It was at night in low light, and the pictures on the screen (when reviewed) did seem grainy. When I tested the image stabilization (by shaking the little bugger vigorously while snapping the picture) I was surprised at how great the pic looked. The camera seems a bit heavy, but I can live with that. I'll wait and see how everything holds up a week or two from now. It seems like most of the real problems take that long to manifest themselves.

GREAT CAMERA (lisa — 02/22/2008)

#1 yes it is a 10 megapix camera, however it has only a 3x zoom so if you zoom in digitally you can get very grainy pix.
the shutter will only lag if you don't press down all the way.
This is a great camera for portability. It takes outstanding pics. I think that most people that are having difficulty are really not following the directions.

Kodak V1003 (Cary Gordon — 02/03/2008)

I've had a Kodak camera in the past that I loved very much, I found the quality of the photo's to be execellent the camera's very easy to use. I have tried other brands since and have been very disapointed so we decided to go back to Kodak.

Since buying this V1003 we have not been able to get it to work! When you turn it on the lens will not open plus it prompts you to set the date and time. As this is done the camera shuts down! When you turn it on again it prompts you again to set the date and time.

Not so EASY TO SHARE (Kathy Harpel — 01/19/2008)

I got this camera from my kids for Christmas and I was happy as a lark for the first two days. Then it happened all of the pictures we had taken disapeared. Gone forever what a diapointment I called the company and they said to read the directions that they were not responsible for losing the data and pictures its in the small print. My kids didnt have the money to buy the printer that I guess can go with it but I am out of luck. The only good thing is that is cheap and they didn't waste a whole lot of money on it. I think I will just go back to my canon camera with real film.

Not worth the cost (H. Branaman — 01/08/2008)

I bought this camera in September...& right before Christmas it completely locked up. I was lucky enough that store gave me a complete refund. Even before it quit on me I was not satified with it. It seemed slow.

Waste Product...by far the worst. (Wilma Yarnal — 01/05/2008)

I bought this camera specifically for in-the-pocket, on-the-road use and for the fact that it claimed a 10.1 mega pixel. This camera took the worst ,blurriest, not worthy pictures I have ever taken. I have a little Kodak 3.0 mp camera had sharper images. The fact it does not have a view finder makes sunny days impossible. Run from this camera... Run I say...run....

Pls I beg of you not to buy! (Zakari — 11/26/2007)

Ok, like i just bought my camera, and obviously there is something wrong with the lcd screen. I pull it out of the freakin box and like the screen is like freakin cracked. What's up with that. Dude, i discourage anyone reading this from buying that camera. I should have known something was up when the cashier said, whatever you do don't drop it.

waste of money (Rhoda — 11/25/2007)

i bought this because i was going to an out of town wedding and wanted to have a reliable camera to capture the memories. Should have taken a disposible camera. I was going to take it back, but misplaced the receipt, my $200 mistake!! The indoor pictures were horrible with the flash - very pixelly!!! Had to have a flash for indoor pictures. Also, gthe flash didn't carry very far. The out door pictures are fairly decent, some were actually good. Overall, the pictures are fuzzy and dark. Bad choice!!!

DONOT BUY!! LCD PROBLEM (anonymous — 11/02/2007)

Same problem as the v803. Did not drop the camera. Kept in its case. Woke yesterday to a black LCD. Kodak is making very cheap products and passing them off. I bought the extended warranty from HSN-but since I've had it less than a year, they said I have to call Kodak. Upgraded from a 5.1 MP Kodak. Pictures were alot better-video too... I told the serivce center that if I hear that it is my fault about this camera, I am reporting them to the better biz and to ABC news-they LOVE going after fraud issues...no joke!!

Kodak V1003 (LISA HEWITT — 07/16/2007)

A terrible camera - don't buy it! Put it this way.. you press the shot button, but by the time the camera takes the photo of the image you want, the kid or the family pet are half way down the road. Picture quality is rubbish, and you do not get straight-forward instructions on how to use this useless camera. I returned it after 4 days. I exchanged it for a trusty Olympus U760 - and I'm happy again! the Olympus is a great camera, pictures are great, it's light-weight, easy to use, and you get 43 minutes of cam-corder on it - amazing!

shutter lag (Krie Jesnic — 07/03/2007)

About three years ago I had an easyshare camera, which I loved so when the time came to purchase a new one, kodak was at the top of my list of prospective cameras. Unfortunately three weeks with this camera was more than long enough for me. It had some great features, but I could careless about them if the shot is missed. The shutter lag time was unbelievably long. After missing countless beautiful shots I was forced to return it.
