    Great Kodak Camera

    Posted .

    Excellent camera. My husband purchased this for me to replace a very old Kodak. I take many pictures for sales on ebay and this is so quick and easy. Also takes great zoom pictures and those of the grandchildren playing sports, my dogs and plants. I do needlework and am amazed at how clear the pictures are. This is one of the best buys you will make.

    Good Camera

    Posted .

    Over all this is a very nice camera. It does not focus as clearly as some others, at the full extent of the zoom. I have some issues with the reality of the stablization which this camera has, it does not function as well with that as some I have had. But, when it works correctly, it takes lovely photos. Sometimes is suprises me, in both directions of good and bad. Overall, Good Camera.

    Great Camera

    Posted .

    Hi I bought this camera because of its ease of use and all the reviews I have read. It takes great pictures and the information button on it tells you what to use each mode for. This is my very first digital camera. Was afraid to buy one because I thought they were complicated to use. The Macro setting takes great still closeups such as flowers or figures. The settings are perfect for everything. I learned how to use it in one day, that is how easy it is to use. Would reccommend this product to anyone who is looking for great pictures and ease of use. The 12X optical is perfect for zooming in on those far away distances. For the price you get a great camera!! Kodak kudos for the camera.

    Great Camera...

    Posted .

    I did my research on cameras and finally decided on this one. I wanted the zoom, I wanted to be able to take cute shots of my young son, and then turn around and take fun artistic shots of nature or animals at the zoo. Sure, it's a bigger then the slim cameras. But, I always carry a bag anyways, and you simply can't beat the 12x zoom in this price range. One con is that the lcd screen doesn't have a high resolution. But, it's better then what I expected after reading other reviews. I cared more about the end result--the actual printed or shared photos. I was torn on spending the extra $100 or so for the newer model z812, but it just wasn't worth it. I don't plan on blowing up my pics to life size, so the 7mp suits me just fine. Buy this model, and spend the extra $100 on the memory card, bag, rechargeable battery and charger. Camera is very user friendly and I was taking pictures out of the box. The camera is also lighter then what I was expecting, and I found it very comfortable to hold and use in my hand. Pop up flash is a bit of a surprise at first since it pops up fast with a "pop" sound. I wish it came with a rechargeable battery, but after having a Sony Cybershot for years with a special (dang expensive too) recharable battery, I was happy to purchase a rechargable battery for this one with the knowledge that I can always throw in a couple of AA batteries in a pinch. The quality of the pics blow me away, and I simply love the photo software it comes with, and this comes from a photoshop expert. The Kodak software allows you to make quick changes and get them printed. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone. You simply can't do better in this price range.

    Great camera for this price range

    Posted .

    As a hobby photographer with an interest in nature photography, I was looking for a digital camera with a good zoom lens and a camera that would take decent pictures. This camera has exceeded my expectations. I particularly like the Smart Scene feature which has taken great shots in the auto mode, without even getting to the other settings. The zoom is better than I have had with a previous 35 mm camera. This camera has a quicker shutter release than many other digitals and I have been very impressed with some of the mid action shots I have taken of wildlife,The functions are easy to learn. Minor drawbacks (very minor to me in comparison with overall function of camera):EVS/LCD functions cannot be used simultaneously; a small button is pressed to use one or the other. There is a pre-flash when using the flash mode, however, this is not hard to adjust to once you know it's there. The accompanying user manual has good basic instructions, there is good online help. I found the software to be satisfactory; some features are immediately available; others have to be obtained on line. This was not an issue for me as I have other photo software. With personal creativity and taking the time to learn all the functions, this camera can do just about anything you want and more until you are ready to move on to more advanced photo equipment. I am exremely pleased thus far.

    Wonderful Product

    Posted .

    We have used different cameras over the years, but this one is definitely the best one yet. The pictures were always crystal clear and of great quality. We like being able to do short video clips as well. Another great feature that I enjoyed was the panoramic feature. You take 3 pictures in a row and it will stitch them together for you. The other nice thing is it shows you the edge of the picture you just took so you can line up the next shot perfectly! Many different shooting modes to choose from, I'm still playing with all of them to find the perfect ones for each situation. But even the auto setting does a wonderful job. We did notice that the battery pack that it came with lasted forever it seemed. But once we started using regular AA batteries they seem to die quite a bit sooner. But I'm sure if you spend the extra for quality batteries that won't be an issue. The batteries still last longer than in our old camera. Overall, a wonderful product with great features that are easy to use and deliver a wonderful picture every time. Would highly recommend this camera!

    Great camera!

    Posted .

    Although this might look like complicated, it is an easy to use camera. I just started playing around with the camera and could easily figure out what each setting was for. It would have been even easier if the camera came with the complete user's manual instead of having to download it. Not everyone has a computer and/or internet access which makes it difficult for those people. The pictures come out great and you can enlarge them up to 20" x 30" which is fantastic. I love the software that is included, you can edit, crop, fix your pictures easily. A few things that I didn't like is that the 2nd day I had the camera, the neck strap broke and I almost dropped the camera! I think the camera was a little heavy for that teeny strap. I already mentioned the user's manual issue above. Another thing is that the camera comes with a non-rechargeable battery. With the 2 other Kodak Easyshare cameras that I bought, they each came with a rechargeable battery, so I was surprised when I went to use my camera and it didn't even turn on. So I had to go out and buy a $30 battery on top of the $280 I spent on the camera, I think that the battery should just be included. Overall I think this is a great camera!

    Great camera for little money

    Posted .

    My brother in law just bought this camera last weekend. I have the older version of this camera and I got to play around with his for awhile. Definitely a very nice camera. This is one stellar camera. If you don't have the money to spend on an SLR, this is a good alternative because it has many manual options. The menu is set up well and is very intuitive. I particularly like the "macro" shots. Battery life is excellent. Picture quality is good. 12X optical zoom is great! The AF is pretty good...sometimes a bit frustrating. I wish they'd put manual focus on the lens of these camera's. The only con I have is the startup/shutdown times. It's not an "instant on" camera. You have to wait for the lens to extend and retract depending on whether you turn it on or off. Excellent camera!

    Great investment

    Posted .

    I bought this camera with the help of the Photo Department Manager. He asked me what I was looking for in a camera and brought me right over to this one along with showing me others I may be interested in the same catergory. I love the zoom. I take lots of photos. The auto mode is awesome. No mater if its night time moving objects or a posed photo. I have been very pleased with my purchase. At any event I attend, I take between 100 to 200 photos throughout the event. The only negitive aspect about the camera is the battery. It shoud come with recharageable and an AC adapter to recharge. but I buy the lithium batteries and they get me through my days. Overall I love this camera It is so easy to use I don't miss the action at all and capture for great memories.

    Good Camera for the price

    Posted .

    I really like this camera but it does not come with a rechargeable battery. The quality of both the pictures and video is good. However, the store sold the rechargeable battery but NOT the charger - you'll have to order it online. You can use 2 AA batteries but I went thru 2 in just one day, so it could get expensive...Overall plan for another $75 if you want a rechargeable battery.

    Very Nice Camera

    Posted .

    This is a very easy to use camera and worth the money! This camera takes very nice pictures, close up and far away. The ability to zoom in and take a far away picture without losing detail is a great feature. The camera recognizes the need to use the flash and opens the flash on its own, so you dont have to worry about that. It can select the most appropriate type of photo and has several action, night, day, etc. shots to choose from. I cant say anything wrong about this camera. I especially like Kodak because it really is "easy share". Photos are easy to down load and the connecting cords to hook up to your TV are easy to plug in so you can see your photos on the TV! This is my 3rd Kodak and I have been pleased with all of them.

    Best Bang for your Buck

    Posted .

    I bought this camera simply for the Zoom. After bringing it home I have turned into a photo junky. This camera takes fabulous photos with all the different settings. You don't even need to use an owners manual to use this camera. Three people I know have gone to buy this camera after viewing my Kodak Gallery. Many people commented on my Hawaii pictures that they look like post cards. The only thing I wish it that it was a bit slimmer for taking to a wedding and that it took better motion pics in bad lighting. This camera gets a 10 in my opinion. As for the battery packs, they are a necessity. Every camera today uses a lot of charge to operate the zoom and focus. I even use the video mode and that too is awesome!!!

    Stunning photos!

    Posted .

    This camera replaced an older 3.1 mega pixel Kodak camera that would no longer accept memory cards. When we saw the 1st photos from this camera, we were stunned. The clarity and detail was simply amazing. The "beach" setting alone will justify this purchase price. As far as the complaints about battery life, it's no worse than any camera I've owned. I use rechargeable AA's and always have a spare set in the bag. The original battery had amazing life for a regular battery too. You can't go wrong with this camera whether you're a pro or amateur. Catch it when BestBuy has a promo going and spread the payments out if you need to. Either way, a GREAT bargain for the price!

    Great Value for the Buck

    Posted .

    Prior to attending my first professional tennis tournament, I researched purchasing a "decent" digital for under $250. After doing all the comparing, I picked this one. Great choice! All my pictures turned out wonderful (over 500) and have had many inquiries about what kind of camera took them. Solved the battery issue by purchasing rechargeable AA's and charger for less than $20, buy some extra batteries and you're good to go.

    Stop shopping and buy this one

    Posted .

    This camera is excellent with the 7.1 mp. Cropping on a computer are all excellent quality. Battery is an issue like already reviewed but buy battery and charger from Kodak online and save. You can not beat the camera price and quality of pictures. One draw back is that when taking video, when you zoom, picture is out of focus until zoom is finished. Hey, this is not a video camera so deal with it. Video quality is excellent! I am very happy with this camera! Buy a 2 gig memory card with it. Or buy two, 2 gig memory cards and forget about running out of memory. You won't regret buying this camera. Great price, great pictures. Stop shopping and go for this one!

    Excellent choice

    Posted .

    As an ametuer camera buff, I wanted a Digital Camera that was easy to use and a name brand. The Kodak fit the bill perfectly. It is easy to use in all modes. The software that comes with it make cataloging your pictures easy also modifying pictures is also easy, with a click of the button. Make sure sure you update the software on the internet. The camera is a perfect choice for all camera buffs. Kodak also make getting your pictures developed a snap, it's done over the internet. You have the choice of size style, even projects such as coffee mugs or greeting cards. And you don't even have to leave your house, just a click of the mouse button.

    Exactly what I was hoping for

    Posted .

    I'm a 50+ yr old technological rookie & it's pretty easy to use as long as you're OK experimenting taking pictures. I took close ups of my favorite Detroit Tiger batters from 350 ft away & they were nice & clear. Takes nice portraits. The video clips are pretty cool too. Panoramic shots are awesome & pretty easy to take. Doesn't come with any accessories. After 2 days I am delighted. My 1st nice camera !!!

    Great Product

    Posted .

    When i was looking for a camera, I was hoping to spend about $200, but when i found this one, my mind changed instantly. The Kodak brand is by far my favorite brand and this camera is wonderful. It has the image stability that i was looking for as well as a very quick shutter button. I have had my camera for several days now and haven't had to change the batteries once.
