I gave up on a Kodak once. My main issue was the time imprint didn't click over to "PM" until 1:00, instead of 12:00 noon.
The companies I do real estate ispections for monitor the time photos were taken, and with that camera any photo I took over the noon hour would show as being taken between midnight and 1am.
I have several identical Sam Sung cameras. I always carry two when I'm on the road, one for a backup. They've been virually indestructible. I tripped and hit one against a pool table once and knocked the lens cockeyed so it wouldn't retract. I pushed it back straight, it retracted, and I'm still using the camera.
I think with Kodak, you pay extra for the name.
