Thomas.'s review of Kodak DC3200

★★★★★

“I just purchased a Kodak DC3200 for $60 (with a $70...”

Written on: 28/01/2002 by Thomas. (1 review written)

Good Points
Cheap (rebate now offered), easy to use, uncluttered.

Bad Points
Slow serial transfer, short battery life, this camera is as ugly as some really hokey plastic Star Trek prop. (And we're not talking Star Trek TNG either...)

General Comments
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 higher end Kodak cameras (like the DC 3400, which has many more bells and whistles) but the DC3200 certainly does yeoman duty for the casual activities I'll use it for: vacation outings, fishing trips, sending e-mail snapshots to the rellies, etc. The DC3200 certainly does not deliver high-end digital photography but I think those who minimize this nice little camera for that reason are missing the boat: it's cheap, it works and is very functional.

I do plan on getting a USB xfer, waiting for high definition pictures to load through the serial port is indeed very slow. Thanks for your opinion on the USB, Dennis!
