Summary: BUYER BEWARE!!!!!! The Kodak Z990 optical zoom lens does not focus correctly. Had to send the camera to Kodak for repair. Bought the used-like new Kodak camera from Amazon Warehouse Deals, Inc. They never bother sending it back to Kodak for repair. Sold it like it is used-like new with a defect. Amazon Warehouse Deals, Inc never inspect the camera to see if it worked properly.
Summary: The price, features and zoom beat out all of the competition. The big problem is it takes 20 seconds to process picture and return to ready. Shutter speed is slow, press button and sometimes the picture is gone before it takes the picture. Sometimes the flash does not go off at all when it should. Yes it has the latest firmware update 1.12 dated 2011-11 and I use 6 & 10 High Speed cards. Pressing the shutter button while waiting does not help.
Summary: Camera...Total Trash! (At least the one I received was). My wife initially opened up the box, prior to giving this item to me for Christmas. She wanted to make sure it worked, of course, before I used it. Well, right out the box, it seems like a wonderful camera. All of the different modes and features...the look and feel...the 30X optical zoom, and wow...the 12M pixel rez. So I took it for a whirl. The Kodachrome was Kodacool.
