Caterpillar from Afar
I was given my digital camera, Kodak Easyshare M340, by my mom as a baby shower gift in December of 2009.
She gave me the camera three months before my daughter was born and I used it, and am still using it, almost on a daily basis.
First of all, I loved that it came in different colors because I received my camera in my favorite color which is green.
In terms of picture quality, I especially like the sharpness of pictures taken from afar. I frequently took pictures of my sister-in-law at her soccer games and the pictures were surprisingly clear from the bleachers.
I also have critters who like to visit the balcony of our apartment and I love being able to take pictures of them without getting too close.
I like the different picture setting options which make it just as easy to take pictures at night as it would be during the day, or even far away as easy as close-up.
I currently use my camera the most to take pictures of my Daughter Abbey in order to send to friends and family. I enjoy the "Share" feature on my camera which organizes pictures in groups once uploaded in order to send specific pictures to friends and family.
I’ve had it for almost eight months now and have never had any problems with it. However, I have had problems with the software that was provided with the camera. The Kodak software takes quite a long time uploading pictures and videos and also has a bad habit of freezing mid-upload.
I’ve never been sure if it was software issues or my computer but I haven’t ever had any other problems with my computer. Over-all I have only loved having my camera and plan on using it for years to come, recording the many milestones that my baby girl will accomplish.
