    Apr 4, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very easy to use with quality pictures.
    Cons: It goes through batteries fast, especially with the LCD display on.

    Summary: The Kodak DC215 comes in a silver color with a 4MB CompactFlash card with a list price of $349, I found it for as low as $249. Then you have the Kodak DC215 that comes in a Millennium Edition that has a gold body with a 8MB CompactFlash card ... read more

    Pros: Reliable even when mask-taped together.
    Cons: Battery tray breaks;slow between shots;heavy;odd lens cover

  • Not worth the money or the effort!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Effortlessly transfer photos to your PC using a cable
    Cons: Bulky, low-resolution, expensive

    Summary: This must be the worst full-size digital camera I have ever had! It's bulky size and weight makes it nearly impossible to carry with you. If you are, however, brave enough to attempt it, I strongly recommend purchasing a reinforced carrying ... read more

    Pros: Handy, simple to use
    Cons: Never a leader, it has fallen well behind the field in features and price.

    Summary: Looking for an economical compact digital camera, I decided on the Kodak 215 Millennium. The criteria were simple. It had to be small enough to fit into a jacket pocket–or my wife’s purse; it should have an optical zoom and at least 1 meg resolution. For ... read more
