Kodak z710 camera

Excerpt: The zoom is great and so is the lcd feature. It takes very vibrant pictures when you get it right. Several modes allow you to take pictures in different settings but that is standard on digital cameras these days.
Great product - likes to "eat" regular AA batteries though

Summary: Great camera with a 10x optical zoom which works very well, along with more digital zoom. Even at 7.1 MP it does a great job with photos. To print photos I just remove the memory card out of the camera and put it directly into my computer or printer reader. Nice size to be able to hold on to - some cameras are very small and thus hard to hold and sometimes a finger might cover up the flash. Not with this camera.
Summary: This camera is GREAT! It has excellent zoom, and takes high quality pictures. Whether you are an advanced photographer, or just a beginner, this is a wonderful product. The software that comes with it sucks, so it's best if you have a memory card reader that allows you to put pictures directly onto your computer instead of using KODAK as a middle-man. One feature that kind of annoys me is the focus light.
Summary: I did a lot of research before purchasing this camera. I was pleased with the camera when I received it. After 3 weeks the LCD screen went out and over the course of the next week everything else stopped functioning. I thought, no big deal this should be covered under warranty. WRONG!!!! I sent the camera in and was told I would need to pay $140 to fix it. THey said that the camera had been dropped.
Summary: I've been a 35mm SLR user forever and was a stubborn hold out from going digital. However, I finally decided to buy a digital camera but wasn't ready to fork over $1,200+ for a camera. I then came across Kodak's Z710 advanced point and shoot. The wide array of features on the Z710, plus it's Schneider-Krueznach lens, and it's very reasonable price convinced me that this was a great "entry" camera into digital photography. I've had it for 2 weeks now and I'm very happy.
Summary: We bought an "entry level" camera three years ago and were ready to upgrade. I did some research on digital SLR's but then decided I'm no where near a professional photographer and just needed something to take great pictures of my children and other "normal" events. I found this Kodak and I'm glad I did! I was going to buy the Z740 after reading the Amazon reviews but ended up with the Z710 for the 7.1 MP.
Summary: The Z710 has so far proved to be a great camera for digital picture taking. People familiar with Kodak digitals should find no problem working with the menu settings. If you are interested in action photos however it is a little harder to find a good an appropriate setting in the menu as the "sports" setting is only just so effective. And be warned, the image in the view finder is the same as the one from the LCD screen and you can't use both at the same time.
Summary: Like others have said, this camera delivers professional photos even if you're just a soccer mom or vacation family man. I wanted a simple camera that had a powerful zoom. I'm so happy. I've taken close ups at about 8" to 50X zoom pictures. All crystal clear. And the battery life is phenomenal! I've taken about 100-125 photos and the Lithium-Ion battery which came with the camera still shows 100%.
Summary: This was my second digital camera and was a bit shocked when I received it because I still have an Olympus that I use regularly. I told my husband that I felt like I was cheating on my older camera with this new flashy one. But my concerns quickly faded away. This is such a user friendly camera. When I first opened the box I spent some time reading the manual and quicly realized that I had in my hand the easiest camera I had ever owned.
