Summary: This is one GREAT Camera!! Got my Z990 couple of weeks back and have been totally in awe of its performance. I had a few Canon point/shoots before and wanted to take this one before i 'graduated' to a DSLR.
Summary: I have started taking photos at work, as part of my job. They didn't have a camera so I used my older kodak for awhile, until they bought a nikon z810. My kodak z1012is is so much better at taking photos that I decided to get another kodak before they were all gone since they have stopped making...
Summary: Let me start by saying that you will never ever get another camera like this one for this price, period. Cameras with these features cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars. I thinks this was Kodak's way of saying thanks to consumers for their over 130 years of loyalty, before closing its doors.
Great camera if you want to move up from a point-and-shoot without investing in a dSLR!

Summary: I bought this camera because I was looking for something with manual settings for great macro shots. I was definitely not disappointed! I love it! Until now, I had been a point-and-shoot girl, and this is a great camera for you to get if you want to: a) move up from a point-and-shoot camera, b)...
Summary: I have read a lot about this camera before purchasing it and the price I paid of 167 led me to go ahead and take a chance. The next cameras I was considering was the Fuji film 25exr, 30exr, Canon SX40 HS, but this camera was half the price of the others. The reviews that I read are fairly correct.
Summary: Got this for chaperoning a jr. hi trip to NY. My old camera is a Panasonic Lumix 6mp with only 6x optical zoom. It took some very nice shots, but I wanted more zoom. Very easy to set up. Lots of settings to play around with, still playing with it.
Summary: Two years ago, I took a photo of the moon while I was flying on a plane. That camera had 10x zoom, and I got a massive moon that filled the whole image, showing me the mountains and cracks of the moon.
Summary: My experience is mostly with a pentax k1000 35mm in high school. Once a year I use a very nice digimax? 8x zoom which has always worked well. But the vast majority of my experience is with an SLR that uses real film. I even did my own developing and printing. This camera is a good "bridge" camera.
Summary: I have had this camera for a few months, and it is for the most just as advertised (and reviewed by folks here). If you want to use it for the video side, you should just leave it stationary, as it can not keep up with moving objects.
Summary: This camera is pretty good. I've seen people complain about the menus but they don't seem too bad to navigate (the one on my DSLR is rather intensive as well). I use it mostly without the display and use the viewfinder. For now I just have regular lithium batteries in it.
