BEST VALUE FOR THE MONEY
9 March 2013
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.
Good camera that can't do closeups and eats batteries

Summary: Can't take closeups. Autofocus is always blurry on closeups and it's very frustrating. I have to put it on manual focus and still can't get within 6-8 inches. I Try zooming in and out and lots of fiddling around to finally get it. Real disapointing for closeups but takes other pictures great.
Summary: I purchased this camera because it is very easy to use and lightweight. I use it to take pictures of family events or just to take memorable moments. This is the second Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 Digital Camera that I' ve owned. Therefore, I am familiar with its features.
Solid Camera: Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285: A Good Choice
14 October 2010
Summary: As far as picture taking goes this is a very nice camera. Many features are above my needs, I have been using this make of camera for over 2 years for my work. Zoom and quality are very good for the price.
Summary: I bought this as a factory refurbished unit. It was just $90 w/free shipping and I think it's a great buy. In good light, photos are darn good... crisp, detailed and vibrant. Honestly, they come close to those from our DSLR. You can see more difference in "action" shots, but they're still very good.
Summary: I use mainly the camera, but the video is simple and crystal clear as well. The pros- super sharp pictures, price. The cons- sometimes a long time processing, telling me to please wait, between snaps, Closeup pictures are the same as all the kodaks, nonexistant.
Summary: I really like the camera for taking pictures of family, scenic views etc. However, I was hoping that I could get close-up pictures showing good detail of small parts, but even using the special macro for close-ups it won't focus any closer than about 12 inches. Otherwise, I really like the camera.
Summary: I like the compact size, and the larger viewing screen. It takes great high definition photos, and is easy to use. The only downside is it isn,t as good as I would like for close-ups, needed to do eBay listings. This my be just my fault, as I am no expert with this camera.
Summary: Well, I was in the market for a digital camera and after pricing several at Wal-Mart, I stumbled on this camera and snagged it as the price was very reasonable for a 12 MP camera. The camera takes excellent HD photos and the menus are easy to navigate.
