Kodak Easyshare M530

We've given the M530 a grade of B.

Editor's Review

The M530 is similar to the M550, but with a smaller, 3x optical zoom.  Reviews still haven't hit the net, but you're probably better off spending another 25 bucks for a more versatile zoom and HD video.

great camera. (Donna Smith — 12/24/2010)
i love the pic quality! Reviewer, Todd, and I agree about the transfer issue. I bought it "refurbished from Overstock.com, i paid $77 For some reason, the autoplay doesn't open up automatically open up when I plug it in to my computer, like it did with another Kodak Camera I owned. that's one complaint. I also have a hard time navagating with the small buttons, I know where they are by memory, i just have a hard time with the up/down & left/right navagation button it takes me 2-3 times to hit the right direction, like when i'm trying to change from still pics to video. 2nd the other buttons blend in with the rest of the camera. my fingernails arent that long that it should be such a problem. I often take a pic when i'm trying to get to my menu for video. that irritates me a little, but i figure, for the price, and quality of actual pics and video, i'm quite satisfied with my purchase.... i love Kodak anyway, cuz i happen to be from the birthplace of the company, visit the GeorgeEastmanHouse, or the EastmanTheatre (its very recently renovated, if the work is.) Whilst you're here, you could get a teethcleaning @ Eastman Dental, they're very gentle. I love KODAK and i hated to have to say ANYTHING in the negative about it.

Simple, inexpensive, intuitive and good photo quality (Rick Plummer — 11/21/2010)
In the past week I have purchased and returned two competitors' cameras; an Olympus and a Sony at $229 and $179 respectively. I was very disappointed by the quality of both of them, especially for the price of a mid-range "point-and-shoot" camera. After returning them I decided to "settle" for a Kodak G530 on sale at Wal Mart for $79. It produced better quality photos than either of the more expensive cameras. It was simple to operate and at $79 comes as close as you can get to a "disposable" digital camera. Granted, it won't compare with my high dollar Sony touch-screen and my Cannon SLR, both of which I already own, but if I drop it overboard while fishing or loose it while hunting I'm not going to cry over anything but loosing the great photos I got. I've tried the software and honestly, unless you really have a need for it it's just not worth the hassle. Maybe that's why it's not included with the camera. It's a free download. If you use any of the new Windows operating systems it's far simpler to use their integrated software to download your photos from your SD card reader or directly from the camera with the included usb cord. It's light-weight and compact, which is great when every ounce counts on a back-country hunting or fishing trip. The battery seems to last a reasonable time particulary if you are careful not continuously review your photos while away from home. There are pre-sets for just about any situation you can think of if you don't wish to use the Auto mode, most of which work quite well. If you want an inexpensive camera that just plain does a decent job that won't cost you an arm and a leg then this could be the camera for you. No complaints for me so far. As for longevity.....time will tell. An extra $6 at Wal Mart will buy you a complete replacement within a year. If you want a really great camera with all the bells as whistles, spend $800 or more and find yourself leaving your camera at home or in the car because it's too expensive to take out in the weather or risk loosing it or spend $79 and get some great photos,

Terrible (Dr Todd D. Stong — 10/28/2010)
I am totally frustrated as to how to move my photos from the camera to my PC. The book says to plug in and install software from the Internet. That took me an hour! Then it seemed all I could do is send these pictures to a million internet social sites. There was no clue on how to transfer photos to my PC. The manuel says follow the prompts. None were seen that said anything about download, transfer or any word that guided me to move these photos. Here I am in Central Mexico on a project to test fish for mercury so hopefully 3000 fishermen and regain their livelihood. The camera takes photos just fine. The manual is a joke. Clearly it has never been tested with NORMAL users. It at the end speaks about Download Kodak Software. I went to that site, where I am now and I find nothing to down load, only endless writings on this share your photos on the Internet stuff.
