Kodak says the DC3200 is a 1.2 megapixal, but truly its a 995,000 pixal unit. Yah it takes relatively good pictures (very good outside, not so good inside), but what do you expect for $100 bucks or less. I would say spend the extra $50-$75 and get a 2 megapixal or better. But if money is a problem and you only want Ebay pix or for email, this is your camera. USB transfer of internal shots would of been better or a faster 4mb or better compact flash card would of been perfect. Probably why... (read more)

The Kodak DC3200 is a pretty good camera for a beginner. The pictures could be clearer for my taste, and less bright. It downloads slowly with a serial interface. The need to doctor almost every pic to decrease the brightness slows down the process greatly. (read more)

The Kodak DC3200 digital camera has good image quality for Email and keeping photos of friends and family. Even though it's only a 1 megapixel camera I think its pictures are very good.
Not for professionals but for the rest of us it's a great camera. (read more)

I just purchased a Kodak DC3200 for $60 (with a $70 mail-in rebate now in effect). My wife and I wanted a simple point and shoot digital camera for e-mail and to reduce our sizable photo processing costs. The DC3200 is a simple, well-made camera with limitations: LCD use really toasts batteries quickly, the artful subtlety of the flash is not unlike a 105 millimeter illumination round and the software is cheesy.
That said, this is a wonderful buy. How can one go wrong for $60? I've used... (read more)

After seeing Georges comments I wanted to add some more. I did get the USB xfer at Best Buys for $29 for compact flash previously but didn't mention it as it wasn't standard with the camera. The xfer is fast and we use it over several networks with the USB adapter just hooked to one computer and it works just great.
I have contacted Kodak but seem to never get an answer for a lens cover and haven't found one at a camera shop as of yet.
If you cover the flash with one or two layers of 20... (read more)

I purchased this digital camera for my daughter who will soon be 14 years old for a Christmas Present.
It is extremely easy to use, almost goof proof. It is well worth the money and I only paid $88.50 for mine since it was the last on the shelf and a demo. I did get everything it came with as they had the box and all the unopened software, cables, etc.
It takes good photos, but they can be over-saturated until you adjust to what setting you want for the white balance and flash. If you are... (read more)

This was my 1st digital camera, and I've now sold it! For general snapshots of a big area in good light, or with flash at a distance it takes OK shots. But taking pictures of anything specific that's smaller than say, a big dog, is a waste of time. You either end up with a big poor quality image or a too small to be useful image. You have to hold the camera incredibly still too, otherwise the image is blurry, and with no tripod socket it's tricky. And don't be fooled by the 1 megapixel... (read more)

Cheap and chearful digital camera that takes really good pictures and is simple to use. The camera is light and the rear LCD display is a very useful feature. Unfortunatly, the camera is ugly and bulky. It also has no tripod mount, red-eye or time delayed picture taking. The internal memory is pretty slow and it takes a while between shots, though if you stick a compact flash card into the camera the performance greatly improves. You migh want to invest in some rechargable batteries... (read more)

When I saw it in the shops, the DC3200 didn't appeal to me because it looks quite large and ugly. Appearance aside, it is a great camera for a great price. It feels solid and outdoor photos always come out crisp and clean, except in extreme lighting conditions. Unfortunately, the flash only works in a range of about 1.5 - 3.5 metres from the subject. Any less and it's ineffective; any more and the washout destroys your photo. Fortunately, the flash is usually unnecessary anyway because the... (read more)

Excellent camera for the money. They scrapped the all accessories to lower the price. Even lens lid is missing, you need to buy it separately. It costs them probably 2 pennies, which is annoying. (read more)
