Summary: We needed to upgrade our old camera as we just had a little girl joing our family two weeks ago. My wife was always complaining about the "delay" in the our old picture when she was trying to capture a smile from our kids. This camera eliminated the delay. Sure, we wanted to get a nice Canon for $500+ but we really can't afford it. The bottom line is if you want a great camera that shoots awesome pictures-combined with a great price. Get this.
Summary: This camera is awesome! Picture quality is beautiful. The video quality is also very good. It's easy to use, light and very portable. It doesn't fit in your pocket but it's light and easy to carry in a small camera case. The original battery lasted for several hundred pix. I had purchases a rechargable one because of the comments that I had read before I purchased. I would definitely recommend it.
Summary: This camera takes nice pictures- but it burns through batteries pretty fast, and I like to use AA lithiums- well even though the manual says they work, the battery compartment door doesn't close tightly so that there is always contact- my camera would then not always work- you have to buy the more expensive CRV3 battery to always have contact- and it'll burn pretty quick through those, too. I'll be returning mine, and going back to Canon (I lost my Canon Powershot).
Summary: I had an older Kodak digital so chose this partially due to familiarity with function. Is very simple to use and has a lot of flexibility. I like the large LCD screen and intuitive controls. Great all around camera.
Summary: This camera is absolutely amazing! It is compact inexpensive and takes the most wonderful pictures. It is very easy to use and the dial that Kodak uses makes it simple to understand for any user. It is by far my favorite camera.
Summary: I love my kodak!! I was looking for a rechargable camera but settled for this one because of the price. The pictures are clear as day and the close-ups are incredible! It takes lithium batteries though, and have found the batteries last longer if you take them out or insert a little piece of paper to block the batterie's connection to the metal plate.
Summary: I'm very happy with this camera. The pictures are clear, and generally bright enough on the smart capture setting. For weird lighting, the manual functions work well, and I like having the options. I also own a manual SLR camera, so it's nice to have a little more custamizability in my digital. My old one had basically none, just the settings it came with.
Summary: Length:: 3:00 Mins This is a video that the camera took. I figured this would give the would-be buyer a good idea of what the quality was like. Takes HD video which is awesome. And the 14 megapixel pictures look great. The videos are taken in quicktime, which kinda sucks, so I purchase a movie converter, and convert them to Windows Movie format, and now all is good. Would recommend this to anyone...great camera, great video.
Summary: Searching for a pocket digital was like entering a maze. Which way to turn, features, megapixels, color, cost and the list goes on. The Kodak z1485 IS seemed to fit the bill for everything except (for my needs, wet weather conditions). First impressions were very good. A small learning curve had to be tackled with various settings, etc. I was a dedicated 35mm guy since my junior high school days.
