Is this camera any good?

Has anyone tried the Kodak Easyshare C350? PC World are selling it at £79.89, and it looks like a reasonable buy as a 2nd camera to keep in a handbag for social occasions etc. I can't find any reviews of that specific model, though some similar numbers have had decentish ones. Wasn't sure what the quality would be like at that price though. Any alternative suggestions welcome.

For a point and shoot for social occasions I don't think you can go wrong with the Kodak, however you can get an optical zoom model for the same money.

The c330 for example:

4.0 Megapixel CCD
3x Optical Zoom
5x Digital Zoom
320x240 20fps movie mode with sound, length limited by memory capacity
An easy to use point-and-shoot camera with the advantage of optical zoom
In the Kodak Easyshare C330 box:
Camera, wrist strap, USB cable, 2x AA alkaline batteries or 1x CR-V3 (non-rechargeable), custom dock insert, 'getting started kit', software CD (Kodak Easyshare software, tutorial).

I'm no pro photographer but I know I'd prefer to have an optical zoom.

Good point De Marcus. I'd overlooked the lack of optical zoom.

If you are considering the C330, you may prefer to buy from a UK supplier; (the link to Pixmania given by De Marcus is a French company).

click here is a well known UK company, (Amazon), and the final price works out cheaper as they give free delivery. Pixmania charge £6.80.
