Question about Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera

1 Answer

PROBLEM DECIDING ON PRODUCT

I AM PLANNING ON PURCHASING A PRODUCT AND I AM NOT SURE WHICH KIND WOULD WORK FOR MY NEEDS. I WANT A DIGITAL CAMERA, BUT I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO TAKE VIDEOS OF SOME OF MY VACATION. I SEE THAT SOME ALOT THE CAMERAS ARE CAPABLE OF VIDEO, BUT IS THAT THE TYPE I WOULD NEED OR WOULD I NEED TO GET A CAMCORDER THAT TAKES STILL PICTURES? I WANT SOMETHING NOT TOO EXPENSIVE, THAT IS EASY TO USE. I WAS LOOKING AT THE KODAK EASY SHARE 8.2 MEGAPIXEL DIGITAL CAMERA. I COULD NOT FIND THE MODEL NUMBER LISTED IN PRODUCT MENU. THE MODEL I SAW ON THE DESCRIPTION WAS MODEL # C813. DO YOU THINK THAT WOULD WORK FOR WHAT I WANT?

Greetings BOOMCCORMICK,

It really depends on what is most important to you. If you are most concerned about still pictures and want to take an occasional lower quality video, then go with a digital camera. If you want high quality video with an occasional lower quality photo, go with a digital camcorder. Unfortunately to achieve high quality on both products, you still need two different units.

The camera you mention is a nice unit. However keep in mind my above advice before making a purchase either way. The unit is capable of video, but it will not be the quality of a standalone digital camera. Also, if you do decide to utilize your camera for video, have an abundance of memory on hand, preferrably the high speed type. The reason for this is video eats up your memory very rapidly. The reason to use high speed card is so you have smoother video.

I hope this helps!
Thank you,

Dorothy

Ryobi camera says lens error, re-insert battery


i see that alot in my days of working with cameras... my friend... the only advice i can give you is that its cheaper to buy a new camera than getting it fixed.. ...unless you purchased the camera with the service plan (i.e. your local best buy retail usually offers service plans on their products) or its under the manufacture warranty, but usually the manufactures doesn't covered drops... you can always take it to your local best buy retail and have geek squad look at it, but they are going to tell you its cheaper to purchases a new camera.......

Planning to purchase a Camera, view the tips below before purchasing.
  1. First plan the budget you've for the camera and check the best one you can get it for the price.
  2. Do not go for the one which have lots of features, go only with the one which have the useful features.
  3. Make sure that the functions available in the Camera are best suiting for you. Do not go for the one with unwanted features.
  4. Before buying the Camera, know what exactly you need with the Camera.
  5. Check for the type of photography which you're using the Camera more, like Indoor, outdoor, fast moving capturing like sports etc.
  6. Check for the condition in which you're capturing the images; dark or bright lighting conditions.
  7. With this you can check if the AUTO option is enough or you need the MANUAL also.
  8. Check only for the main features required.
  9. Do not look only for the high Megapixel Cameras, as this is not going to help you in capturing the high quality images.
  10. If you're using the correct settings in the Camera, then high MegaPixels are not required.
  11. Other part is the accessories which you require for the Camera. (Like Flash if not inbuilt, Memory Cards, Carrying case, tripods, Lens, Lens Cap, etc) These accessories may require to be purchased separately.

Good Luck!

My Dell 942 All-in-One does not recognize the FinePix E550 card. I'm not sure what I need to download to be able to transfer my pix to printer. This camera was given to me recently and I don't have the usb...


You need to install the camera software on the computer then print from there but you will need a USB cable to connect to the printer,just check your camera does not require a special Fuji cable. Or possibly a card reader direct to the printer will work but I am not sure on that one, see printer manufactures for information on this. Good luck

Nothing happens when we plug the cord into the camera..we get no pics on our computer..is is possible i deleted a program to do this..? I deleted several programs i thought we did not use about a week...


I chose not to accept your premium assistance plan and the reason is your website lies that it is free..since your solution to my question is to get me to purchase something that you say is free,I have decided to find the answer on my own. Think about how deceitful your website is.......

Kodak works on a different kind of warranty where you are able to book the camera in for a warranty repair and on the third time repair if it gets to that you can have the camera replaced. If your camera is still within the 28 day period of purchase, you are able to take it back to the store of purchase. You can get more information on this by contacting them telephonically or via email.

My camara Nikon D80 is having some trouble


Hey Nannayr,
You could bring your camera to any Best Buy™ store to have it serviced under the service plan you purchased for the camera, but if this is a Best Buy™ service plan it does not cover cleanings. I will say that camera cleanings are usually pretty reasonable in price, but make sure it is done by an authorized service technician or you run the risk of voiding any warranty or service plan on the camera. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Kodak c813 easyshare digital camera


Greetings theslim,

There are few things that would need to be clarified before giving you an answer to this.

How long have you had the unit? Digital cameras carry a 14 day return policy on them.

Did she or you purchase a Performance Service Plan? If so, then you should be able to have store look this up for you. If that is the case, you can bring the unit into the store and have them either fix it or exchange it (depending on what the service department decides). If the camera does not have a PSP, then you would need to take advantage of the manufacturer warranty, which you can still do at a Best Buy™ store if the unit is still under mfg warranty.

In order to take advantage of any of the above listed options, you would need to obtain a copy of her receipt. If *********** has this, she can chose to give you the customer service pin on the receipt which will allow your local store to pull up the receipt for you. Unfortunately, Best Buy™ is unable to share that information with anyone other than the original purchaser so make sure you get this from her before proceeding any further.

I hope this helps!

Protection Plan


Greetings 4webbs,

You can do either of the following:;

1) Ask at your local store, then can sometimes look up your previous histories to see if you did indeed purchase a protection plan.

2) Call 1888BestBuy and ask for Consumer Relations. They should be able to check your purchase history also to see if you have a protection plan.

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Dorothy
