Reviews and Problems with Kodak EASYSHARE Z1012 IS
Showing 1-10 of 47
Good, inexpensive camera with lots of options
20 January 2011
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.
Summary: My opinion rollercoastered with this camera, bummed out, then not so. It eats batteries up. I used Eneloop rechargeables, and they would last about an hour, then the low battery Icon came on. However I could use it for quite awhile before it stopped working.
Summary: Good camera, easy to handle and operate. Picture quality is good. But: The constant working of the autofocus system with the camera turned on,drains the batteries way too fast! We sometimes get no more than 20 pictures from a newly charged battery.
Summary: I bought the Kodak Easyshare Z1012 refurbished last month, so I expected to have problems with it. I was immediately impressed with the number of features available on it. I just started freelance photography for extra income so I didn't want to spend too much in case it doesn't work out.
Summary: I don't know why the system was refurbished but it appears to still be defective as battery usage is horrible. goes through batteries like crazy. take five or six pix, maybe use flash once or twice and you get battery warning symbol. check the batteries and find they are half dead.
Summary: Many features. Nice looking. Beautiful pictures. The only negitive I can find is that it eats batteries quickly. Kodak has a winner if they can just cut down the current draw. They should either fix the power draw or lower the price of their specialty battery.
Summary: Picture quality is very good. Auto focus does great on still objects, but is a little slow on randomly moving objects. Video feature is top notch Batteries have not lasted long at all. I have ordered the Kodak rechargable battery suggested.
Summary: I love this new camera because of the lens quality, 12x zoom optical image stabilization feature, and price. I have tried other 8x and 10x zoom cameras the past few years in stores but always had trouble getting sharp point and shoot pictures even with image stabilization.
Summary: When I wanted a new camera, my first thought was one of the Japanese trinity: Canon, Nikon or Sony. I first got into Kodak almost by accident: we went on a trip and left our camera at home so I bought a V603 P&S on sale at Walmart. Loved it immediately!
Summary: The autofocus is sometimes a little tardy, but give enough time and it'll do a magnificent job. Or, just goto manual mode and use the appropriate settings to take instant shots.Image stabilization is not very good, and some high zoom pictures of mine have come a bit fuzzy.
