Great for the non professional photographer.

Excerpt: This camera is very nice for those who want to shoot and take pictures. The automatic feature helps to do just that. There are other settings if you choose to get a little more involved in picture taking. To learn to use those features takes a little more time than I care to spend - but it's nice to know the option is there. The actual viewing and deleting the pictures on the camera itself is easy to use. The digital screen tells you exactly what to do.
This is a wonderful, versatile little camera that eats batteries

Excerpt: We purchased this camera just prior to a trip overseas. We were definitely impressed by its versatility, the quality of the photos, and its ability to compensate for a variety of circumstances. However, the batteries wear out very quickly, and they are both expensive and difficult to find. On more than one occasion we found ourselves frustrated by a sudden death of battery power while in a situation where we really wanted photos (like in a favorite castle in France!).
Excerpt: I thought the Kodak EasyShare Z712 digital cameara was initially okay. The photos it takes are fairly good considering the price I paid for it. When I took my camera along while touring the United Kingdom, I used it to record a live stage show called "A Taste of Scotland". The footage looked good when I played it back on the camera, but when I returned home and uploaded the clips I'd taken to my computer, I noticed that the so-called "improved image stabilization" was...
Summary: I like the 12X zoom and the photos are good so far. I expected a little better based on the fact that I was upgrading from a 3.1MP Panasonic. I still have to learn some more about the settings since some pictures were blurry--probably my fault My main problem is with the battery. The CRV3 lasts pretty long (300+ with lots of reviewing), but isn't cheap. I bought mine at a store and was mislead to believe that it would run with normal AAs or rechargeable NiMH AAs. Nope!
Summary: Es una camara muy bonita y simpatica con su tupè de camara profesional. Lo malo es que para que funcione se necesitan baterias de camiòn (90 amperes). Mi experiencia personal es la siguiente: Con dos pilas de 2300 mp. de buena marca la mayor cantidad de fotos que logrè tomar fue de 22 ¡¡Allì se acabaron las pilas! tuve que volver a racargarlas 8 horas. Si uno quiere sacar fotos en una fiestita familiar mejor comprarse directamente otra camara.
