We received the package directly from Geeks.com in a large protective envelope. This is a refurbished camera so it will come in the typical Kodak EasyShare refurbished packaging that we have seen before.
Opening the box up everything inside is nicely packed and well protected. Inside we find the V1273 camera, power adapter, USB cable, USB adapter, battery, carrying case, camera insert, and a getting started guide and software CD.
