Summary: I've had this camera almost a year now. I have taken many professional looking photos for friends, family & even myself for my own family. I love the clarity of the photos, they're so sharp and clear. If you learn to use the right settings for each situation you will have better results. I have had many compliments on my photographs that I have taken with this camera. I definately would suggest it to anyone.
Excerpt: This Kodak EZ Share ZD 8612 is a really good camera, it also has a really good video camera also. The only thing I've noticed is that the action shots are not extremely responsive, it seems like the picture is taken a second after you think it was taken, you press the button to take picture then wait a second and it takes it. Every thing else is great on the camera.
Excerpt: We have bought nermous cameras since my son was born, he has seem to mess the others up and we arent even sure how. but this one is pretty big and seems to be toddler proof lol. it was very easy to work and takes pictures pretty well. it has a lot of different features on it. and the zoom is awesome. best zoom i have ever seen on a camera. i do not like that the battiers dont last long at all.
The best picture quality stillshot/video camera ever.

Excerpt: I was looking for a small, easy to use video camera for videos of grandchildren and great grandchildren. The sales lady showed this camera to me and explained the advantage of also having a still shot camera so I made the purchase. I used the camera so often that I had to replace the battery three times within the first two months and chose to purchase a rechargable battery system.
All cameras have their pros and cons...this one is no exception

Summary: Before you read this review, I must warn you that I am only 14 years old (I am writing on behalf of my dad). Keep that in mind as you read this. I make no claim to be a photography expert. My dad and I bought this 2008 model at a local flea market for 40 dollars. The former owners made no complaints about it and it seemed to be a good camera. This is the second camera that I have had, although I have seen and worked with many others.
Summary: The store i work at was having a MASSIVE sale on old model digital cameras and this was one of them. for the price i paid ($60) its a great camera. it has the manual modes takes great photos and is responsive. also changing the settings in the manual modes is very easy and intuitive. the only reason i give a three instead of a 4 is because of the type of battery it uses.
Summary: compared to my samsung 8.1 megapixel picture camera , i like this one way better... i use regular AA batteries ... i thought i needed a special battery but found out i don't. this camera takes the best looking natural pictures out of any of the camera's i have had... which is not many. my experience is that any time flash is applied it causes un-natural glare... so i try not to use it when possible on any of my camera's , and i really like the ISO mode on this camera...
Summary: My first introduction to this camera was through my wife's uncle. He walked in with a shiny black camera stuck onto a walking stick, and he looked like some cyberpunk out for some birding. He tipped the viewing screen towards me and zoomed in on a shot of his grand-daughter playing softball. She was in the act of swinging her bat and the ball hung motionless in space before her like a fat toad. He winked at me and said, "99 bucks!" I had to have it.
