The EasyShare M753 Zoom ultra compact camera from Kodak gives you the best of digital technology, with a 7 million pixel sensor and a wide array of attractive features.
The EasyShare M753 Zoom is also equipped with a 3x optical zoom that, when combined with the powerful sensor, allows you to take great high-resolution photos that can be printed onto paper or viewed on an HD television. What's more, image clarity is reinforced by this camera's digital image stabiliser and by the "high sensitivity" mode (up to ISO 1250), enabling you to use the quickest shutter speed and making photography easier in low lighting conditions.
To increase visibility, the EasyShare M753 Zoom has a large 2.5" LCD screen that is ideal for focusing and really user friendly. You can also retouch your photos on this camera with the "Kodak Perfect Touch" function, or display them as a slideshow.
This camera will obviously meet all your needs thanks to its selection of built-in scene modes that, when adapted, instantly adjust the focusing conditions.
With its slimline design, the EasyShare M753 Zoom makes Kodak quality accessible to everyone, in terms of both user friendliness and price!

Don't forget you can also use the 750 points on £75 spend and triple points too!

plus 12 points to the £1 at the moment :thumbsup:

Yup, if I'm calculating it correctly then you'd get just over 1700 points on this so that's £17 to spend in Boots. Also 3.5% cashback is possible through Quidco!

Where on earth does Boots get its "was £159.99" from? The RRP of the M753 is (and I believe always has been) £99.99 - even Kodak UK is selling it for £89.99.

with the cash back not a bad offer.
However needs a pc to charge as the cable is a usb cable
need dedicated separate ac charger otherwise.
is on amazon in silver at similar price.

also small memory card (16 or 64mb) need to factor in cost of larger sd card and perhaps charger when looking at price.

Not sure if box contents same as kodak site, as blue colour is boots exclusive. could be exclusive pack!!!
Anyone got one from boots recently?

Ordered for my mum , 1709 club card points plus 3.5% quido

Not bad, batteries and charges inc car charger on ebay for under a tenner.

I take it what you mean by 'small memory card' is the capacity rather than form-size? If you're talking about on-board memory then most cameras have very limited on-board memory and very few come with a decent sized card if any. You can get a 1GB card for £6-7 delivered from lots of websites if you don't already have an SD or MMC card.

It's at least a fiver more expensive from Amazon and then you wouldn't get Quidco (about £2.80) or the £17 of points to spend at Boots. :?

As regards the charger, etc., according to the Kodak site the M753 box contains an AC adaptor and USB cable:
Package Contents
KODAK EASYSHARE M753 Zoom Digital Camera
KODAK Li-Ion Rechargeable Digital Camera Battery KLIC-7001
5V AC adapter
USB cable
Wrist strap
Getting Started Guide with KODAK EASYSHARE Software
Custom camera insert for optional KODAK EASYSHARE Camera and Printer Docks

Where did you get your info on charger cables and memory? OK, see you ordered it since I last looked at the thread, hope your mum likes it! I think it's only fair to expect the charger, etc. in the box as described on the Kodak site, if it turns up without what's listed it's time to complain, mate!

Most companies these days have items at a price far in excess of the RRP specifically so they can sell it a week later for 50% off so people think they're getting a bargain. Not a bad camera for the price but I have a Kodak Z740 (cost £150+) and its pretty awful.

Original Poster

Yeah, RRPs are a mystery to behold most of the time, but I'd guess this camera was maybe just around the £100 mark most of the time so with the price posted and adding all the points and quidco you're basically getting it for about £60 or so.

The boots website did not say what was in the box.
I looked at a few other sites and concluded ac adapter is an optional extra, as seems to charge from supplied usb cable. Hoping I am wrong.

small memory card I say is 16mb or 64mb anything under 256mb I would class as small. I dont mean physcially small lol. I have a few 1gb cards so can pass 1 to my mum.

Hope the AC adapter is in the box, one less thing to buy.

I hope they put the charger in too, mate, it definitely says it's included on the Kodak website so I think you'd have a good case to argue with Boots if it isn't. kodak.com/ekn…_GB

Sorry GDawes, but it's kinda bad form to go back and edit a post (#5) when someone has asked you to clarify what you meant in their later post (#7). It's a fairly big edit on the second part and the best way is just to let your later posts clarify points you made.

In your original post I felt you were unfairly harsh (or at least that's how I thought it came across) and I wanted you to clarify a few points that you made. Anyway, just a friendly (honestly) note to make things clearer to those reading the thread, makes more sense if we don't do major edits on previous posts.

Cheers,

B.

as its triple points would that be triple the voucher points if i used the 750pts one so 2250pts + the normal pts tripled????

no, just the normal ones :giggle:

The edit fixed a couple of spelling mistakes and what is wrong with clarifying whilst editing.

I admit post 5 was bit vague. Got interrupted at my desk and hid the screen quick. Not so bad I am at home now.

I think this is a good buy voted hot. However the boots web site is vague on package details.
The fact amazon is a similar price and the half price lie boots spin mean the deal is only hot with quidco and boots points. 1709 points is a lot of vitamins or baby food, nappies to me.

I see nothing wrong with adding , amending posts to clarify and add information for later, subsequent viewers, who may not wish to read an entire thread which could go over many pages.

ooops editing again. BTW thanks BJM it was a good find I would not have noticed otherwise. Mum is off to South Africa soon and I hope she likes the camera, her birthday next week.

No problem, just thought you'd already clarified in your later post (#10), kinda made post #7 a bit redundant. The £159.99 price for the 'half price' is a joke (after I Googled), but as you say with the points and Quidco it's a pretty good deal.

Anyway, hope your mum has a good holiday in SA, hopefully she'll get herself some nice pics of the Proteas if they're in flower. Mate of mine spent some time there and got some great shots of them.

with quicdo and points works out at around £60 - bargin:thumbsup:

Not if you google for some of the reviews. Very grainy pics apparently. I'd go for the Fujifilm F20 once PC World can get stock back for £79.99.

Original Poster

Grainy pics will probably be because it uses High ISO settings to prevent picture blurring in low light situations. This results in 'noise' in the photos, especially in dark areas. This shouldn't really cause problems in daylight or well-lit rooms. Either way using a small tripod with flash in low-light situations would help matters.

Still, it's just a little point and shoot camera for beginners really in the sub £100 range of the market and you get what you pay for in the end.

I'd say this is fine for the beginner or even average user as the camera will do the job they need it to do. If you want a really nice camera then I'd recommend spending a bit more cash and trying the Lumix DMC-TZ3 that was on this thread, excellent camera as I've had a shot of ones owned by friends.
