I know alot of you are very talented with Cameras so I thought I would see what you say. My Fuji Film digital camera packced it in the other day after 5 years (4 mp 3x zoom). Not being an expert, just wanting something that takes decent photos, I did a bunch of reading and know I wanted optical zoom, and somewhat small and light for carry. I decided to buy a Kodak C875 8.1 mp and 5x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom alot of buyers had great reviews for this camera. I got it home last night to figure out that I had a burnt out pixel in the display screen and the lens shutter does not close properly. Well I was happy with the camera but still really liked all the features so I exchanged it for another. The new one works great! But I have found just playing with it and doing some more searches IT REALLY likes batteries! I am gonna buy some rechargables tonight for it. Do any of you own this Camera, or have you used it? Any other cameras that you guys might recommend? Keep in mind this was a sudden purchase so funds are tight, about 200-300 dollars tops (Any more and it cuts into my reloading funds!)What do you guys think of Kodak? I was looking at Canon too but where I am they didnt have the one I wanted.
