Hi ppl, I was wondering if anyone had a view on the Kodak CX4300? I read some reviews on it but there was really nothing too indepth about it. It is 3.2 Megapixels but only has a 2x digital zoom. Is zoom very important? Will it hamper my ability to take close ups? I really know nothing of digital photography and only asking because I can get the camera free by purchasing another item thats on sale. This makes me suspicious:D
Basically I want to know would the camera take good enough photos for manips and the like? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

The Kodak CX4300 is not a bad camera. It's got a quality lens and pretty straight forward for a 3+ megapixel digi.
The Kodak CX4300 was meant to be an entry level camera in the 3+ range. (Point and shoot)
There are not a lot of options, it's pretty much a daylight camera or flash photography within 9-10 feet.
The Kodak CX4300 would best be suited for someone who wants to pick it up, shoot casually, email once and a while and maybe print out an 8x10 for grandma.
This is not a bad camera, the lens is good but if you get it don't expect to shock the world. Kodak does have higher end cameras (like the 4330) that allow you to do more and grow more. If that's what you want.
For a freebie it's pretty decent. It would be great for throwing in your backpack, briefcase or purse.
Sorry for the book.
I'd say if you're all ready buying the one thing and you're getting this one for free, that's a good thing.

I have a Kodak DX3900, it's very similar to the CX4300. The picture quality is very good, it doesn't have a lot of bells & whistles but it is very easy to use and it fits in your shirt pocket so it's very easy to keep with you all the time so you don't have to say "I wish I had my camera" when that great shot comes along. One thing I would strongly suggest is to buy the DOCK for it, it keeps it charged, it makes it a one button download, and in my case it makes it the only thing I can always find. :lol :lol :lol
I print a lot of my shots and they look great.
I like mine a lot.

it depends. If you just want to take pictures for fun then it's good enough. If you want to take professional pictures you might want to get one with more features. The kodak camera is basically like a point and shoot camera.

Thanx for the feedback guys! I am in two minds. I want a camera good enough to use the photos for manips and the like. So I think I might hold off for a while as I dont really need what I have to buy to get the camera for free so I'll save some money and buy a camera with a few more features!
