I can tell a personal story about the Kodak EasyShare DX7440. A few months ago I was looking for a camera for my mom. Being somewhat of a technophobe, I wanted something simple. Since her vision isn't as good as it once was, I wanted something with a big LCD. I also wanted something that about the same size as her old film camera. I brought her to Best Buy and we looked at a bunch of cameras... from Olympus, Canon, Sony, and Kodak. I ended up getting her the DX7440, even before I'd reviewed it. Based on other Kodak cameras I've tested, I was confident that the 7440 would do the job. The EasyShare system makes it easy to share photos, the LCD is bigger-than-average, and the size was right. The DX7440 sells for under $300 -- not bad for a camera with a 4 Megapixel CCD and 4X optical zoom lens!
