Pros:haven't found any yet

Cons:film/processing cost more, roll cases can be switched during processing

The Bottom Line: Avoid! I just bought a digital camera and the DISAdvantix is going in the trash.


My camera of ten years finally broke and so my husband, without doing any research, went to the mall and purchased an Advantix C800 for me for my birthday. It has been a terrible purchase. I cannot understand why Kodak even put this camera on the market. The film and the processing cost about 30% more than regular film and developing. The default picture size is 4x7 not 4x6 like every other camera and most picture frames. If you don't want the 4x7 you have to remember to push the little button on top every time you turn on the camera to change it to 4x6 which is important because you'll pay more in developing for the 4x7 print. (I have asked my photo developer to automatically crop them all to 4x6 and either he can't or he forgets because it he has yet to do it.) Apparently the processing takes longer with Advatix film. At least that is what my drug store says when twice now it has not ready the next day. Finally, after processing you don't get negatives but you get your case with the film back inside. It generally comes with a proof sheet print with the film ID number on the bottom. The film ID number is also printed on the back of the photo. However, I recently brought in two rolls of film to get developed and the lab put the wrong film back in the wrong case (switch ID numbers). So, when I selected #11 from roll ID#XXX-XXX for a Christmas card, I got back 50 copies of #11 from the other roll. Regular film developing gives you negatives you can see and verify that you have the right shot.
