Since the camera had a defect when you got it why didn't you use the warranty?
I currently have a Kodak EasyShare C330. I just found out that it was defective from the very start (lets too much light in, so it could only take pictures in the dark). Now it's giving me all sorts of lighted symbols (a movie camera icon) and stops in mid-action, so it's time to bite the bullet and get a new one. I'm so upset with this camera, that I don't think I want to try another Kodak. But a benefit I would have in buying another Kodak is that I have a Kodak dock (so it doesn't eat batteries). I want an easy and cheap camera. I only take shots of things that I'm selling on eBay---maybe 30 pictures a week. I want something that I just click and shoot. Any recommendations???
