Summary: This camera does everything well. The 10.1 MP resolution is superb. The weight and grip work well for one handed use. It came with two rechargable batteries and a plug in charger. Transfer to computer is easy via USB. Manual operation is great in certain situations but full auto does just fine. Lots of settings to fine tune operation but default settings will work for most.
The Kokak Z1012 IS is simple and takes very clear shots

Excerpt: I searched thru many digital cameras that would give me the easy to use features of a point and click yet offer me a way to manually enhance pictures when i needed to as the Kodak Z1012 IS. I will say that many cameras offered higher mega-pixels but the optical zoom wasn't what i wanted. I like a higher optical zoom like the Z1012 and it gave me great mega-pixels to enlarge pictures when i needed to.
Excerpt: We bought this camera when we found out I was pregnant with our first child 6 years ago. It has been dropped, slobbered on and generally mis handled and still works fine. It also takes video, which I love. The color on the pics turn out great. We love this camera!
The Kodak EasyShare Z1012IS camera takes the best pictures.

Excerpt: The Kodak EasyShare Z1012 IS camera takes phenominal pictures whether close-up or zoom. Action pictures are easy to take while coming out with the quality of a professional photographer. It is uncomplicated even for the novice, while giving results that anyone would be proud of. I try to always remember to take it anywhere there may be a chance for memories I want to keep or moments I want to share.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera with my Christmas money last year. I thought that I was getting a really good camera. It was highly rated by Consumer Reports I believe it was a rated a best buy. I purchased it from Sams Club for just under $200. I am not happy with this camera at all. It takes way too long to get ready for the next shot. I feel like I miss every shot that I wanted to take. I'm often telling my family "wait don't move the camera's not ready!!!".
Excerpt: We have had this camera ever since my daughter was born! She will be 4 in September. I can honestly say I have never once thought of replacing it! I love this camera. We have great pictures, good quality pictures that have brought so many treasured moments to life! I am thankful for that. I love how easy it is to share pictures with others through the Kodak Easy Share Soft-wear. Not only does it allow me to easily upload, sort, and store my pictures to my computer..
Picture quality okay (not stellar); camera too bulky.

Excerpt: My husband chose the Kodak Easyshare digital Z1012 camera to replace our old camera which broke last year. While this camera has many good features, overall I wish that we had bought a different type of camera. There are TONS of options and features on this camera, and I find them to be very overwhelming. There are over a dozen buttons on the camera, all with different functions; honestly I only know what about half of them even do.
Excerpt: I purchased the Kodak z1012 camera as my first digital SLR, due to an ongoing interest in photography. I thought it'd be an okay camera to start off with, & I guess my predictions were correct. This camera has a lot of the features that more expensive beginner cameras have, & although they may not work as well, they suffice. It can be adjusted to almost any setting, from a specific setting for sunset lighting to one for fireworks.
Summary: I ahd purchased this camera as a working digital camera and loved everything about it.When I fell on ice and dropped the camera I was upset that the LCD screen had a crack in it and would not function. Viewfinder was fine. So I thought I would just purchase a new one. Nope- Kodak stopped production of one of their best cameras. I bought the next closest available model and returned it in 4 days as it did not perform anywhere near this model. What Now???!!!!
Summary: The camera is a good in-between for those that like point-and-shoots but would like DSLR-like options. Point-and-shoots tend to have lower optical zooms (usually in the 3X-6X range), while this camera has a nice 12X zoom with image stabilization. You can't change lenses like you could with a DSLR, but you can do a fair amount just with what you get in the Z1012 IS. On the usability side, the menus are pretty easy to figure out.
