Hello,

I just recently found the Kodak c875 &I love the fact that it has 8 megapixels and 5x optic zoom - I love zoom!

So I went online to find more about the camera. I realized that there aren't many professional reviews about this modelout there - I couldn't find the c875 reviewhere either.

Some consumer reviews I read however wrote that the red-eye feature doesn't work so good( something about the flash being too close to the lens??), and that when youshoot many pictures you only get a few that aren't blurry and is useable.

Is this true? Or have they just haven't figured out the camera setting etc..?

If you have any experience with this camera, I would really appreciate it!

Don't know about the red-eye. The best test would be to try it for yourself. I have read that the C875 flash is "too bright." A cure for that would be to back away from the subject a bit.

What some people do with point and shoot cameras is to tape a piece of paper between the flash and the lens. That gives amore diffuse and less directed lighting.

The blurriness would be an out-of-focus condition which would be more difficult to detect on the LCD than it would through a viewfinder. If you have that problem then switch from multi-zone focusing (the default setting) to center-zone focusing.

[align=left]I own a C-875 and like the camera a lot. Yes, the flash can be a bit to powerful at times and at certain distances, but that is easily overcome. Red-eye is a problem in some cases due to the close position of the flash to the lens, but I have never found that to be a problem, as you can easily retake the photo without thered-eye, by just repositioning yourself.[/align]
[align=left]Please post a sample photo and I would be more than happy to help a bit with technique to improve the photo. Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey there,

thanks for replying. Good to know the red eye is fixable! I don't own the camera yet, I was just shopping around so I don't have any images to post but thank you for offering to help

I also learned that the it can take picsup toISO 800 and was wondering, what is the noise like at that level? Is it really obvious or is it possible to get decent prints?

E.C.

Emily-

We all seem to vary somewhat regarding noise and how much noise is tolerable to each of us. On the C-875, I personally stay away from high ISO settings, except when I cannot otherwise getthe photo, and I have personally been very pleased with the results.
