Summary: While I'm not a professional photographer, I have many years of experience photographically documenting scientific test results in the field. I have used Canon and Minolta 35-mm SLR's most of my professional career. I bought this Kodak Z712IS in spite of the poor reviews concerning battery life. I am very familiar with the proper use and charging of batteries and felt the battery problem was "operator trouble".
Summary: I bought one of these Kodak's the other day because I have owned three Kodak digital cameras and I like the Kodak interface. The fact is that this camera takes excellent pictures, but it eats batteries so fast (so UNBELIEVABLY fast) that I have to give it one star. I am using AA rechargeables and I am lucky if the batteries last two days or over 20 pictures. It really is that bad. Forget about movie mode or using the LCD screen.
Excerpt: Das mit Abstand größte Problem dieser Kamera besteht in dem Akku Fach, welches nur 2 AA Baterien/Akkus aufnimmt - als Folge muss man wirklich die Taschen voller Akkus haben, da wirklich nach 30 - 40 Bilder der erste Satz "leer" ist. Völlig indiskutabel - Kamera bloß nicht kaufen, fast alle anderen Kameras sind da besser! Das User Interface der Kamera gefällt mir: man kommt schnell durch die einzelnen Menüpunkte durch. Sicherlich nicht viele Features.
