Kodak EasyShare M580 Reviews

CNET reviews the Kodak EasyShare M580 and writes;
“he good: Wide-angle lens with 8x zoom in a compact body; larger than average LCD; easy photo, video sharing directly from the camera; Mini-HDMI output. The bad: Button design can make use tricky; always starts in auto mode. The bottom line: The Kodak EasyShare M580 is a solid value for snapshooters in need of a versatile lens in a pocketable package.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCWorld reviews the Kodak EasyShare M580 and writes;
“The 8X-optical-zoom M580 serves up great exposure quality and easy controls, at the expense of manual settings. It’s a versatile camera for the price, but it falls short on exciting extras.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMag reviews the Kodak EasyShare M580 and writes;
“Kodak’s EasyShare M580 delivers solid images and a nice feature set, including an 8x zoom lens, and easy photo sharing, for just $200.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCW reviews the Kodak EasyShare M580 and writes;
“Verdict: A decent compact camera but disappointingly hard to use. Good points: Cheap; mainly metal build; 14 megapixels and decent zoom; HD movies. Bad points: Top plate controls awkward and slow to respond; photo quality only average”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

PocketLint reviews the Kodak EasyShare M580 and writes;
“The good: Inexpensive price, slender dimensions, 8x optical zoom, HD movie capability with HDMI output, lightweight yet sturdy metal build. The bad: Top plate controls badly arranged and unnecessarily fiddly, average image quality. Verdict: Like a catwalk creation from an over-indulged designer, the Kodak M580 unfortunately falls flat when it comes to real-world practicality “
Rating: ★★★☆☆

About.com reviews the Kodak EasyShare M580 and writes;
“The image quality in the Kodak M580 is among the best you’ll find in a sub-$200 camera. The photos I shot with my test unit during my Kodak M580 review were vibrant, sharp, and colorful, even using the camera’s fully automatic “Smart Capture” mode. “
Rating: ★★★½☆

DigitalCamera-HQ reviews the Kodak EasyShare M580 and writes;
“Overall, the Kodak M580 is a solid bet for the price. Despite a few hitches, it performs reasonably well and can be had for quite a bit less than its medium-zoom competition…It’s a good idea to take a look at similar models, like the Panasonic FH20 and Sony W370 — we still prefer both of those models over this one — but if you can find a deal on the M580, you’ll be pretty satisfied.”

Steves-digicams reviews the Kodak EasyShare M580 and writes;
“The quality of our outdoor image samples is excellent, showing good exposures and vivid colors from the images.. Our indoor samples show a great deal of detail within the images along with producing very accurate colors. At the lower ISO settings, you can still see a little more noise than you would like to, which softens some of the edges in dark and low contrast areas.”
