Summary: I was worried I wouldn't be able to use this camera, but it's much easier to use than I thought. It takes great photos and is simple to use. FYI - the software is no longer available for download from Kodak, but you'll still be able to download pictures to your computer if you get the right USB cable.
Excerpt: I received the Kodak Z812 Digital camera as a gift for Christmas last year. I was not able to do any research on the camera before it was purchased because it was a gift The camera is a good camera but I am not sure if this is the digital camera that I would have picked. The zoom is a little slow. There have been several times that I have missed a shot because the zoom is slow. Even if you use the red eye setting, it is very easy to have red eyes in the pictures.
Excerpt: The clarity and quality of photos I have taken with this camera are exceptional. I am pretty photogenically challenged but I am still able to take quality photos with this camera. It makes it easy.
Excerpt: Received this camera as a gift. I have admit I absolutely love it. I've taken pictures from a moving car going 75 miles an hour that turned out great. The picture quality is awesome. Love that it also has a video camera. Only negative is that it is a little complicated to use as far as chosing the correct mode for the below average photographer...
Excerpt: My husband purchased this camara about two years ago. We took it to Disney and took nice pictures as long as we were outside. Inside photos not so nice(even after changing the settings). Overall quality of the camara is great however it does suck the juice out of your batteries. I have a friend that has the same one and she complains of the same battery issues.
Excerpt: This camera is great. It allows me to take pictures of my quickly moving targets (my kids). One right after the other. The zoom will let you get close up without disturbing your target. For the price it is great. I love the screen to preview the pictures and the menus are very user friendly. Just dont forget your memory card the internal memory does not have that much room.
Excerpt: Great camera. As a parent of 2 small children I was looking for a camera that was fast. I wanted it to be able to take the picture nad then the next one before the kids had moved on. And this camera is great. And as an added bonus you can get SLR lenses and put them on it to take pictures really far away. Long zoom and great features. Easy to use the menus.
Excerpt: The Kodak Easy Share Z812-IS is a very nice camera for the price. It takes great pictures and I love he "IS" piece - image stabilizer. You can zoom in with it's 10x zoom capabilities and the picture still comes out focused on your subject. The camera I have came with a rechargable battery which has a decent life span. I can haul it to a couple different events before the battery wears out. After charging you have to reset the date because you have to remove the...
Good quality photos, but goes through batteries like crazy.

Excerpt: My husband I bout this camera about three years ago a little after our daughter was born. It's easy to use and takes good quality photos. The one drawback I have found is that it goes through batteries like crazy. After awhile the rechargable batteries will not work in it at all. Disposable batteries seem to work a little better, but it can easily go through twenty batteries for maybe an hour and a half to two hours of picture taking. I try not to turn the camera on...
The camera is easy to use and screen is perfectly-sized!

Excerpt: The Kodak - EasyShare Z812IS Digital Camera is incredible. My first experience with digital cameras was also with a Kodak EasyShare camera and I really liked that one, but the view screen for the photographer was small and it was hard to tell if the picture taken was a good quality or not.
