When Kodak quit the business I was heartbroken and thought I could no longer use the camera. As a final word on processing, I will reiterate here that the camera is very slow while processing shots mostly just moving them to the memory card. I may have it set to an energy consumng mode, but as is i t will double the cost quickly. The 12X zoom is fast, making catching that special picture that much easier. Good, inexpensive camera with lots of options The camera is a good in-between for those that like point-and-shoots but would like DSLR-like options.

So the bottom line is the camera is packed with features and is a fun camera to use. This Kodak digital camera has the ease of use needed for those just getting started, and the additional features that a professional would love.
It is so close to the eyepiece I just prefer it over the screen. The dial works by rolling it right or left to select the setting you want to change, then pressing and rolling to change that setting. The Z has 10 Megapixels and 12x optical zoom, and it’s light enough to be able to hold steady even zoomed out 12x.
easyshrae Given its range, I expected it to be very slow in cycling and thus annoying to use. The long zoom on the Kodak Z IS is nice to use. The only slight concern I have is in the design of the pop-up flash: However I could use it for quite awhile before it stopped working.
Make sure you get a rechargeable battery pack! The interface was also oddly slow in my experience. Perfect camera for photographer Several years ago I had a Kodak easyshsre z which I loved. The Kodak Z IS did a good job of delivering wonderful color that was mostly true to life regardless of the light source.
This item doesn’t belong on this page. Some light hairline scratches across middle of screen. The camera feels solid. I also liked the option of using standard AA batteries in a pinch: With less resolution and less color accuracy than the screen, the viewfinder appeared to be a bit more washed out and showed grain a bit quicker, making it ill suited for image review but just fine for composition.
It worked well outside even in bright conditions, but I have seen much better in terms of brightness, contrast, and fluidity in some comparable cameras recently.

Switching to rechargeable AA’s resulted in a slight improvement maybe two dozen photos before needing to kpdak the batteriesbut that still means carrying quite a bit of extra equipment around. Several years ago I had a Kodak easyshsre z which I loved. The Z IS did really well on battery life. At the end of the day for me, judging a camera comes down to its ability to produce a good image.
General auto focus performance was good. It eats batteries up.

Good, inexpensive camera with lots of options The camera is a good in-between for those that like point-and-shoots but would like DSLR-like options. Interestingly, the camera did alright in low-light focusing.
The lens cap was prone to just falling off when I gently set the camera on the table. The flash is ok, but zz1012is all small digital cameras, not effective enough. More often, having ewsyshare repeatedly incite the Z to focus just meant that it took longer to get the shot.
The position of the zoom is awkward for me. I used Eneloop rechargeables, and they would last about an hour, then the low battery Icon came on. Differences in settings, system design, and exposure control make it difficult to compare image stabilizations across camera brands.
