"A great camera, if you learn how to use it!"
20 April 2013
Pros: Excellent flash, good ppi (Pixel Per Inch) for camera's time; even when using 720p, easy to use features with on-screen descriptions, comfortable and well designed button/switch placements and locations, excellent stabilization when activated, 12MP.
Cons: Noisy lens when focusing or zooming, limited remaining video time counter for larger cards; still works fine though, focusing issues at close range even if set correctly (within 6in/15cm), pictures are easily blurred if settings are used incorrectly.
Summary: Out of all of the cameras I have ever owned, this is probably one of the best. It has loads of great features including a dozen different settings for a great picture. Includes 5x optical zoom for getting close to an object still with a good quality image.
Excerpt: best quality in low light, bright light, and video capability. Not sure how they can improve on it, but I am sure they will come up with some greater ideas. Very dependable camera. Maybe they can come up with a long life battery that would replace using AA's.
Excerpt: kodak easyshare z1285 12.0 digital camera is the best gift i got so far. I'v had it for a couple years now, and im still learning different tricks with it, i love it so much. I use it everyday. It's mp are awesome, all its features are brilliant. i looooove it!! if this one breaks i'll probably get it again.
Excerpt: This camera is just perfect for me. I was a beginner until I got this camera. Now, I feel that I can pursue my hobbie and may turn it into a career : ). It is user friendly and I really do feel that I am a photgapher. My family and friends now are always asking me to take their picture.
Excerpt: This is probably one of the only products I own that I absolutely hate with a passion. And I don't use the word hate lightly. I have two, may I say, adorable little kids, and this camera does pictures of them no justice. I am seriously thinking something is wrong with mine based on the glowing reviews other people gave.
As my first 'own' digital camera KOdak Z1285 has worked!

Excerpt: The Kodak EasyShare Z1285 Digital camera is the first camera I have personally bought for myself. All others I have gone through were gifts. I spent around $150 on sale for this brand new. It does up to 12mp which has been wonderful for big poster prints of shots from our travels. The video quality and sound pickup is awesome! However it at times blurs and eats through batteries like you wouldn't believe.
Excerpt: This camera was a replacement camera that my Fiance surprised me with. The picture in a good lighting situation come out very clear and the colors are vivid. You can enlarge the pictures to a bigger size without running into too much pixelation. There is a delay between pictures which is a bummer. The camera also hates taking closeup shots. If you move at all it won't snap the picture and just tries to autofocus.
Kodak Z1285 Camera was ok except for deleting our pics

Excerpt: We purchased the Kodak EasyShare Z1285 Digital camera in the summer of 2008. We finally recently replaced it after it erased all the pictures that we had taken of our third child's first two months of life (from the hospital to almost 2 months). We had, of course, been too busy to put them on the computer. This was actually the second time this camera erased our pictures. We should have learned our lesson the first time this happened with this camera.
Excerpt: I bought the z1285, i hate it. the pictures are grainy and unclear. they are not good quailty i have all ways loved, kodak, but the z1285, is not a camera worth buying. any pictures that i have had printed from it are unclear and very faded in color. if you want to use the main setting which is to take pictures in any lighting or place, doesnt work well. the camera will also take you though tones of batteries. it runs off of 2 double a batteries.
