Summary: This camera gets 4/5 because the lens cap is flimsy and the LCD screen is grainy. Otherwise, you will not be disappointed with this camera. I previously used a Kodak Z650 on a cruise and loved the results, so when it came time for me to update my digital camera, my husband chose this Z710 for me. The picture quality is fantastic, the menus are easy to understand. Battery life is great.
Summary: I am very happy with the camera. I was surprised that it is smaller than I imagined. Also, it comes without a rechargeable battery which is no big deal, but was a disappointment or at least a surprise. I would like to see this camera come with a rechargeable battery, charger and ac/dc converter. I bought them later from Kodak, and am quite satisfied.
Summary: This is my fourth digital camera having owned a Sony, another Kodak and a Nikon - you can see I went back to Kodak and here's what I found. First the camera isn't quite small enough for pocket size although it isn't cumbersome in the least and is actually lighter in weight than you would think. The pictures give one the impression this camera looks like a full-fledged SLR in weight and size.
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: I've used this camera mostly on Auto, and love it's ease of use. haven't tried enlarging any photos yet, so I can't comment on quality of larger prints, but the 4x6 are great. I LOVE the zoom. I'm mainly a travel photographer, and the zoom is really handy. and it's quick--you don't have to wait long for the auto to fix itself to perfection. great camera for beginners and pros alike.
Summary: I just got this camera on last night. After I opened the box, and put Kodak batteries, I took a picture of my living with very little light in night mode. The picture came out very clear and was better than my Canon. It is so easy to use that you do not need to read the manual to know how to operate it. One thing that I do not like about the camera is the zoom mode is not accessible while in video mode.
Summary: I very much like the camera and the functions are awesome. I especially love the cropping option and the clarity is still spot on. The only downside is that I was using an HP digital camera and am currently using the software with that camera for transferring pictures. The software that comes with this camera is nice, but when I transferred the photos from my camera to the software it didn't save it on my computer (just in that software with no option to move it to...
Does it go by it's name?. I still have to find out.

Excerpt: "...with a cam's technicalities) about Kodak Easyshare Z710. The best thing I love about it is the resolution of the pictures when I uploaded it in my Multiply or Facebook accounts. As per manual, the range of image sizes are 3072 X 2304, 3072 X 2048,2592 X 1944, 2048 X 1536, 1600 X 1200, though I don't really know what these figures mean. The pictures look so great especially when printed on my favorite Mitsubishi photo paper on either silk or glossy. ...
Excerpt: "...and I've been loyal to Kodak for many a year now but one thing they've never really got right is the shutter speed. It's painstakingly slow to take a picture of something moving on the Z710 as by the time you've actually taken to picture the subject has moved away,. Apart from that I don't really see anything else wrong with it though it is a bit bulky and is worth buying a case. I use this camera for basic PhotoShop and the inevitable Holiday ...
Pros: SLR look, High megapixel resolution, great features, easy to use, quite lightweight
Cons: Bulky, slow shutterspeed, lense cap tends to come off, have to manually put flash down
