This is probably not an issue solely about this Kodak model, however, I'm just trying to get some clarification.
A year ago, I obtained a lense kit for my Kodak DC290. I'm especially attached to the wide-angle lense, as it allows me to create some nice effects; people, environments, landscapes, etc.
However, I noticed that with most wide-angle shots, about 1/3 of the outer circle is fuzzy.
Is this an issue with wide-angle lenses, types of wide-angle lenses, or "user-error."
I appreciate any education received.

Re: Wide-Angle Lense Fuzziness
That's completely normal for those cheap wide angle add on lenses. There good for a little fun but nothing serious. I bought the lens kit for the Kodak DC3400, probably the exact same lens.
The telephoto in that kit was actually pretty reasonable though.

This is a lense error.
Unfortunantly. KODAK doesn't repair this model due to shortage of spare parts on a world wide plan.
KODAK offeres instead a trade up, where you will have the option to trade your existing camera to a new camera 25-30% cheaper than market price.
Your lens needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled. It should only be done by a certified camera repair shop. It isn't something that you should try to do yourself. It will not be very expensive to have this done, probably in the neighborhood of $50.00.
