Summary: This is a very good digital camera. The lens is what makes this camera a sleeper deal! It's a Schneider-Kreuznach 36mm-432mm (12X) with optical image stabilization. This lens has allowed me to get very good bird and other wildlife photos. The Kodak color balance is excellent The main negative about this camera is battery related. The Kodak Klic 8000 batteries recommended don't seem to make reliable contact in the camera.
Summary: the Kodak EASYSHARE Z712 IS 7.1 Megapixel is a very good product.. i give it four stars out of five. i just wish the light would come out more in the pic's and the battery life was longer.then i would have gave it five out of five..............
Summary: Bought used for a good price.Have other cameras that are a level above this.Have to say with my medium experience with cameras all way back to 1970.This camera is a great camera if you buy at used price and get a model that is in good shape.Picture quality is good and for a beginner and intermediate it has features to let you learn or just snap nice pic of people or flowers or animals or any thing in general.The battery some say it doesn't take a lot of pic but you...
Summary: THIS IS A GREAT DIGITAL CAMERA!IT HAS MORE SETTINGS THAN 90% OF THE COMPETITION.THE 12X ZOOM REALLY HELPS YOU GET THOSE CLOSE-UPS,AND THE IMAGE STABILIZATION ON THIS CAMERA IS PROBABLY THE BEST OUT (UP TO THE RELEASE OF THIS CAMERA).THIS IS A GREAT CAMERA FOR BEGINNERS AS WELL AS EXPERIENCED PHOTOGRAPHERS,BECAUSE IT GIVES THE USER TOTAL CONTROL OR HAS TOTAL AUTO SETTINGS WHERE THE CAMERA ADJUSTS FOR CONDITIONS TO CAPTURE THE BEST PHOTO POSSIBLE.IT IS VERY SMALL (THE...
Summary: This Kodak digital camera with powerful 12x optical zoom and image stabilization represents good value as a repairable used product. 7.1 Megapixel "resolution" is entirely adequate for high quality pictures. I decided to buy it as I can repair the dysfunctional component. The only thing I did not like was the fact that there was no lens cover. That did not deter me from purchasing however.
Summary: The Camera is very easy to use and is a good value for the mid range price cameras. I have used the camera for hundreds of photos in all settings (indoor, outdoor, low light, full sun etc...) and it has produced clear focused photos consistently. It also has the options for more advanced enthusiests who want to use Fstops and manage light manually. Some macro issues, but only when attempting to take photos from extremely close range.
Summary: I was tired of the 3x zoom on my Canon digital and found this camera for $189 and thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did. It has one of the best lenses I've seen on this type of camera. The response time is better than my other camera too-there isn't a long delay between photos.
I had some issues with powering off/on or the lens appearing to get stuck like others have mentioned, I switched from the Lithium AA's to Lithium CRV-3 and the problem ended.
