Editor's Review

The Kodak M381 has gone out of production. Here's what we had to say about the M381 when it was released back in September 2009.

The Kodak M381 is a fairly run-of-the-mill camera from a manufacturer that's had a rough run lately.The 12-megapixel sensor and 5x optical zoom are nice, but if recent history is any indication, the M381 probably won't satisfy.

Disappointed (Alice Smith — 01/18/2011)
I bought this camera a while ago and it was amazing at first taking great pictures but like 6 months into it everything went downhill. The camera stopped functioning correctly and it would freeze, lens would stick and the pictures started coming out grainy and very blurry. Then one day it made a weird noise turned on by itself and died. The lens was sticking out and it refused to turn on and it just died. Honestly I would not buy this camera unless you only want it to last for like a few months.

Nice Pics if you can download them (Loretta — 08/03/2010)
This is the second M381 I had, the first was blurry and the lens seemed to stick so Best Buy gave me a replacement. It's a nice little camera and seems to take good pictures. My problem is that I can't get them to download to my PC, I'm running XP and re-installed the easy share software twice. I know that I can buy a card reader to download them, but it should work without me having to spend extra money. I never had this problem with my Canon. It's very frustrating and would make me think twice about purchasing another Kodak camera.

What happened to Kodak (Joe Bellizia — 03/19/2010)
What happened to Kodak when they made a decent camera that shot great pictures right out of the box. I bought this to replace a Kodak V550 and expected to get the same quality as I did 4 years earlier and I got a camera that I cannot depend on to take a clear picture, especially in lower light situations, which is usually more of the time than not! I am disappointed, so disappointed I went on ebay and bought a used V550! Anybody want a deal on a slightly used M381? Please Kodak, get your @#$% together. Oh yes, I bought it on line from Kodak and paid way too much, not a smart purchase. Two weeks later it was on sale for 1/3 off at Best Buy, when I contacted them, they said sorry we don't match price.

Very poor manual (Larry Katz — 12/30/2009)

It took almost a week for me to set up the camera to use it. The manual was absolutely worthless. Had to consult camera experts. Now that I am set up, I find the camera easy to use and quite satisfactory for my needs.

kodak m 381 (sam butler — 09/03/2009)

I have been shooting pictures for over thirty years as a professional Photographer and have found this to be an excellent point and shoot. The features and mechanics make this a very remarkable camera. Most prople are unaware that this is the company that makes the image sensors for most digital cameras and has an exclusive manlor with NASA/LRO. I have found their customer support to be very good over the years. I would highly recommend this camera. I will email photos free to anyone who wants to see them.
