Date Reviewed: June 27, 2005

Strengths:    Images were nice.

Weaknesses:    Unreliable.

Bottom Line:   
The camera provided very good pictures, when it worked. After six months of use the lens got stuck and I was not able to use it. Kodak provided a refurbished camera, which also got the same problem; the lens got stuck. This is very disappointing. I won't buy any Kodak product again.

Date Reviewed: December 6, 2004

Strengths:    Easy to use, docking solution, metal body.

Weaknesses:    Unreliable

Bottom Line:   
This camera was good--while it lasted. After a little more than a year, it failed, kind of like the shutter was stuck shut, unless every photo was of a black bear at night. Kodak wanted way too much to fix it, about $150. Apparently this is a common failure mode.

Date Reviewed: October 20, 2004

Strengths:    Great images, easy to use

Weaknesses:    durability, very expensive to repair - common failure mode seems to indicate design issue.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased the LS433 new in December 2002 and used it with no problems until July 2004, when it simply stopped working - started with random gross overexposures - then images simply stopped - as though the shutter was stuck closed. Kodak wanted $150.00 + shipping to repair - opted to purchase another one on ebay for less - which worked great for 2 months - then experienced the identical failure mode.

Date Reviewed: August 23, 2004

Strengths:    long battery life, and fast shot to shot time.

Weaknesses:    focus is a problem

Bottom Line:   
it failed for the second time in the 19 months I've owned it. It failed @ 7 months with a startup/lens problems - lens gets stuck and won't extend from body, and was repaired under warranty. 12 months later it is doing the same thing. Very disappointing.
