Summary: after a bit of research i was excited to get another kodak with more zoom for sporting events, etc. unfortunately this camera was nothing but a disappointment. i took this to my son's basketball game and came home with blurry, grainy pictures even after trying several different settings.
Summary: I bought this camera 10 months ago. Although it was fairly easy to use and took great shots it keeps breaking down. After contacting someone at Kodak they had me pay for shipping to send it to Precision Camera Repair who decides whether or not it is under warranty.
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.
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.
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.
