Hey y’all!  I hope you’ve enjoyed the first part of our Summer 2010 Must-Haves!  So far we’ve explored some rocking products, learned some time saving tips, and had lots of amusement park fun!  If you haven’t had a chance to check out the rest of the Amusement Park Fun posts then what are you waiting for?  There’s even an awesome Safety 1st giveaway (valued at $179.99) up for grabs!
Now what would a trip to the amusement park be without a great camera to capture all of the fun memories?  I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to review a great new camera from Kodak—the camera will be used to shoot all of the photos for the Summer 2010 Must-Haves list so be on the lookout for the amazing picture taking capability of the Kodak M580 camera.image I was sent the new Kodak EASYSHARE M580 digital camera from Kodak to review for my Summer 2010 Must-Haves series.  “The new KODAK EASYSHARE M580 Digital Camera. Kodak’s Share button allows you to tag pictures directly from your camera for e-mailing, or uploading to YouTube, FACEBOOK, FLICKR and KODAK Gallery sites, plus e-mail too.”  The M580 has a long list of impressive features to entice even the pickiest camera critics:
*  One button upload-  This feature allows you to go from snapping your photo to sharing with your friends on Facebook in seconds. 
*  8X Optical Zoom 28 mm wide-angle lens.  The quality of the lens is by far one of my favorite features of this camera.
*  Image stabilization.
*  Amazing quality prints with 14 megapixels.
*  Smart Capture and Face Recognition features.  Smart capture automatically identifies the scene and subjects and configures the best camera settings to produce the best quality photos.
*  True HD quality picture and video!
And those are just a handful of the amazing features of the Kodak EASYSHARE M580 camera—did I mention that the M580 sells for the ridiculously low price of $199.99? 
First and foremost I have to say that I have been a loyal Kodak customer for years, as a matter of fact I have never owned another brand of camera…ever.  There are many reasons I have been loyal to Kodak for as long as I have; price—the quality of camera you get for the price is right on point with my budget with Kodak, quality—for me Kodak means quality, I have never been disappointed with a Kodak camera purchase (a huge reason I have continually chosen Kodak for my camera needs), and longevity—there is a good reason why I still have (in working condition) my very first Kodak camera, they are built to last…and they do!
Given my past experience with Kodak cameras I expected the M580 to be a great camera, but it completely exceeded my expectations!  There are a list of features that make the M580 an exceptional camera in my eyes; it’s 3.0 in. display makes viewing your photos so easy, the 8x optical zoom and 28 mm lens make capturing far away shots a breeze, and the Smart Capture feature makes it virtually impossible to take a bad photo with this camera.   Overall I was more than impressed with the quality, ease of use, and phenomenal photos taken with the M580. 
In reviewing the M580 I took so many photos; close-ups, portraits, faraway shots, shots in motion, fireworks—you name it, I shot it.  And since you know how much I believe in seeing is believing below are some of my favorite shots taken with the Kodak EASYSHARE M580 digital camera.
Kodak_1 See the little statue the arrow is pointing to?
Same statue…powerful zoom!
Just gorgeous!
My favorite picture ever taken of Little Diva—thanks to the M580!
So impressed with this one…zoom and in motion and the shot is priceless!
I really cannot say enough good things about this camera, it’s easy to use, very versatile, affordable, and it takes great photos—in my book that makes a great camera!
Buy it:  You can purchase the Kodak EASYSHARE M580 digital camera online and in retailers nationwide.
Make sure you stay tuned to the Summer 2010 Must-Haves for even more great photos taken with the Kodak EASYSHARE M580 camera!
