Kodak Z1285 Camera was ok except for deleting our pics
9 September 2012
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.
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.
Summary: I like the camera for all of its low cost features. They all work well. I have one major complaint. Outdoors in bright sunlight the LCD viewscreen can not be seen. You can not see the composition of your photo. You can only guess what you are shooting at. I put a sunscreen over the LCD, but am not very satisfied with the results. My much older and smaller digiatal Kodak had a viewport as well as the LCD screen. This model needs one also.
Excerpt: My husband and I specifically bought this camera right before taking a trip to Italy. We wanted to replace our old digital camera with something smaller/easier to carry around and something that would take better quality pictures. At first our camera worked great--we were very pleased with the quality and how easy it was to use. But not long into our trip we began to experience many problems with the camera.
Summary: This camera has a problem, I have put in different types of rechargeable batteries, hoping it will keep power on to last for 10 pictures but it's not. it consume fully charged battery within 15 minutes of use. I even bought new AA Kodak - rechargeable 2500mah, but the camera still shutdown after few minutes low Bat. I'm not happy with the performance and think that why it were sold as Refurbished.
Summary: Background: This is my 3rd Kodak camera. I wanted this to complement my Z612 which is too big to put comfortably in my pocket- This is supposed to be my portable solution. I do a lot of amateur photography and have had a few photos used in publications. First, there's not many menu picks. The last two Kodak cameras had an ability to disable digital zoom, for example. There's just not many fine-tuning options in the menu.
Summary: I purchased this camera because it is one of the few available that do HD video, and it's the cheapest also. I was pleasantly surprised how good the pictures taken with this camera are. It is fully adjustable from resolutions of about 1.3MP all the way to 12MP, in 4:3 and 16:9 ratios. I took it with me on a trip to Puerto Rico and all the photos were awesome. Beach Mode is particularly good, and this camera does full three-stage panoramic shots for awesome landscapes.
Summary: This camera replaced my old F10 Fuji Finepix. I had several cameras (Fuji/Canon/Olympus) but this is the first time I'm trying out Kodak (cheapest HD camera I've found that allow zoom during movie recording mode) I took two stars away from it for two reasons: 1. Macro shooting mode is horrible. It won't shoot at close range at all comparing to other cameras I have had.
Summary: como dice el titulo despues de un par de años con esta kodak lo unico que tengo en contra de ella es la duracion de las pilas y el sonido de la filmacion que no es en estereo, lo demas me quito el sombrero y lo digo ahora que la vendi para cambiarla por una Panasonic TZ10 y me arrepiento por que es casi lo mismo a no ser por la duracion de la bateria y el sonido en estereo lo demas me quedo con la kodak que saca una fotos decentes con poca luz y con su potente flash lo...
Summary: Ürün ile birlikte şarjlı pil gelmiyor. 2700 lük bir alkalin pil ile 50-60 arası fotoğraf çekebiliyorsunuz. Video kayıtı çok iyi. Tft ekranı pixelleri gözle görünüyor o yüzden foto ve video ön izlemesi pek iyi değil ama bilgisayara aktarınca çok net. Video kaydını sesli yapıyor.
Cons: Biraz kalın, tft ekranının çözünürlüğü iyi değil.
