I bought this same model camera 4/7/2008 for $99. It was Dead On Arrival. I sent it back to Precision Camera, the official Kodak repair facility, at a cost of 9 bucks. I got it back 2 weeks later, and it died 3 days later (the lens extends all the way out, then the blue light goes out.) This time I insisted they pay for the shipping, which was another logistics nightmare - The shipper (DarnStupidLunkheads) admits their guy didn't show up when he was supposed to, then wants me to call Kodak's laughable "customer service" and go through phone tag hell to get another authorization number! Finally they pick it up and once again it goes to Precision Camera and just like clockwork, 2 weeks later I get it back. And of course it dies again in 3 days, same thing with the lens extending... This time, I tell them just give me my money back, but of course that's not an option. The only option is they will send me a different camera, still respiffied, but customer service says this one is different because it is really going to be checked out thoroughly! So, if you still decide to get one, keep all the paperwork, use the same email address all the time when you write to Kodak (and you WILL be writing to them), and keep your paperwork. By the way, the last time Kodak's repair website told me my camera was no longer under warranty, and I'm supposed to have the same 1 year warranty this one comes with!
Last, the pictures were nothing to write home about, either.
