I have come to love this device, which I bought primarily to photograph my new dog. I think it takes terrific pictures (I'll attach one of them), but my initial reaction was tainted when I tried to get a users manual. I went to the website of JK Imaging LTD, which actually manufactures the item for Kodak, and found user manuals for numerous cameras, but not the FZ51. The website listed quite a few customer service phone numbers, but none in the United States. The box contained an ominous-sounding note saying "Stop--do not return product before contacting JK Imaging LTD,," so I emailed them and while their reply did include a link to download the manual, it also included the disclaimer: "We are regret to inform you that Amazon does not belong to our official retailers, therefore the one-year warranty does not cover any repair of your device, I am afraid." Once I downloaded the manual, however, it did include a phone number for Kodak USA, and a customer service rep said that is not true, that the standard one-year warranty does apply. So for the time being, at least, I'm very happy; it's a remarkable camera for the price, and I haven't had any of the problems some other reviewers have had with blurry edges or logos that have to be deleted. Definitely well worth the money.

5easy to use
By Michael Ackerman
I bought this to replace a much more expensive Nikon Coolpix with tons of "features". This camera is smaller, lighter, and takes better pictures with MUCH MUCH MUCH less fiddling. It is very easy to use while still getting good pictures and videos.

Here is why it is so cheap: the screen is low resolution. So when you look at your photos on the tiny phone screen, they look pixelated and blurry. But the pictures are actually fine once you print them or look at them on your computer; it is just the inexpensive screen can't display the full resolution.

I enjoyed the simplicity in operating this camera with buttons that can be seen easily.
