Summary: Good: -This is an o.k. camera for the price. -The controls and features are easy to access and I will give Kodak marks for that. -I am happy with the 30x zoom lens.It does a good job of bringing distant objects into focus. -The image stabilization feature has been working to work well so far.
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.

Summary: Edit: After just over a year, the viewfinder died. Kodak offered to let me pay to have it repaired. As it turned out, the camera was bulky to carry, often froze, and sometimes refused to focus. Waste of money, waste of time. This is my third EasyShare camera and my second in the Z series. I waited out a couple of generations of Z cameras due to the reviews of the versions after Z612. I used my Z612 even after its flash was broken and it wouldn't sync via USB...
