First let’s go over the things I really like about this digital camera. I think the thing that I like the most is the smart shooting mode. This for the most part will select the best shooting mode for you. That way you will get the best picture possible when shooting and you do not have to mess around with any of the settings. Another thing that I like about this camera and most new Kodak cameras is that you have the choice to shoot in 4:3 and 16:10 modes. I really like shooting in a wide angle mode. The ability to shoot video in HD (720p) is another plus; many new Kodak’s have this feature as well. The camera is very small and compact so you can easily carry it with you.
Now for the things I don’t like, the main thing that really is annoying about this camera is that sometimes it takes a while to turn on, it’s like there is a delay. Say you see something really cool and you want to get a picture of it real quick you might miss it while waiting for the camera to turn on. The 3-inch touchscreen is nice, but it is not as responsive as I expected it to be, it can be a little sluggish at times. Another thing missing is some type of stylus for the touchscreen, I know Sony camera’s come with one.
The camera sells for $200 brand new and $149 from Geeks.com refurbished, so you are getting what you paid for. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Kodak EasyShare V1273 12MP Digital Camera an 8 out of 10 score.
