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. I would classify this as a great starter digital camera for the...
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..
Summary: The 720p video quality is outstanding, I even produce TV commercials using this camera and it "pops" as good or better than the other commercials on TV in HD. However the photo quality is much better on my z712IS, which is TOP notch 9.5/10. My telephoto moon shots and macro insect work in my portfolio has finer detail than my friend who uses a Nikon D40 (but she does not use a Nikon lens).
Summary: You really can't beat this camera for almost all applications. Definitely 4 of 5 stars. Its a fantastic still camera, will give you photo lab quality prints. The video feature is great & Kodak fixed the irritating noise problem while shooting video and zooming, this model does not have the problem of hearing a loud zoom during playback.
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.
Summary: I bought this camera (Kodak EASYSHARE Z1012 IS 10.1 Megapixel)after my experience years ago with the Z650. Both are very similar in design, but arguably the Z1012 demonstrates significant progress. Strengths: Good optics (better than average for compact cameras), natural colors and bright, low-cost, manual controls, great zoom and image stabilizer. Weaknesses: consume batteries quickly. burst mode only saves 3 photos (3 first or last 3).
Summary: I really like this camera, but when you zoom in while taking a movie you hear the zoom. I don't know if something is wrong, it is a refurbished model, or just a quirk. But the video is clear and the pictures are great. I purchased another camera, hope the zoom is better, but still a great camera.
Summary: Excellent Camera, Shoots hi def pictures and along with the HD recording amazing for beginners like me. Also has iso. Great flash, perfect for lighting. Overall solid first camera for beginners!
