Kodak EasyShare M420 10-Megapixel Digital Camera Review

Digital cameras keep on going down in price and you can easily get a great point and shoot digital camera for around $150 these days. With many digital cameras being almost the same, what do you really look for in a camera? The things that I really look at are how many megapixels the camera has, the zoom on the lens, and how big the LCD is. Well today we are looking at a 10-megapixel camera that has a 4x optical zoom and a nice large 3-inch LCD display. The camera I’m talking about is the Kodak EasyShare M420. Geeks.com was nice enough to provide us with the Kodak M420 for review. Geeks.com is a great place to find cheap digital cameras.
