KODAK C340(Great camera sans battery life )

Rating of this Product:
Recommendation of this Product: Yes
Picture Quality:
Ease of Use:
Value for Money:
Shutter Speed:
Battery life:
Pros: worth the money
Cons: drains teh battery
I bought it for around 12 k . Got a 256 Mb card free along with it .
I have been very satisfied with this camera , and a good option for camera in this range.
U have to choose teh dealer u r gonna buy from as additional costs for accessories and battery or may be the memory card can be avoided.

1) Great picture clarity
2) Good shutter speed
3) audio playback strong in videos
4) Good red eye reduction via camera
5) lot of options to shoot during various situations like beach , sports etc that sets the modes regarding pixel quality etc all by itself
6) Good kodak sofware that hass average no of alteration modes

2) Bad battery back up . This applies when u r using the standard duracell type batteries . BUt when u ue the NiMH batteries as recommended by KODAK , it lasts 100 fotographs . U get low cost batteries in gray market and that is worth the money . but never use teh standad eveready or duracell batteries . It last for less than 10 fotografs
3) Video quality is not good .

Purchase Price (INR): 12000

well normally video quality depends on the buffer size and digicams dont hav tat much buffer memory...digicams r not made for video...if tat's a minus ...i wont accept tat

and ya the main ones which drain power in order
1)lcd...most of it
2)camera's internal drive mechanism
3)the ccd's and internal electronics(not much)
since ur cqamera costs just 12 k and 5 mp...higher power consumption and they wouldnt have bothered about incorporating very efficient electronics
no wonder not much battery life
