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.
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.
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.
Summary: I wanted a point and shoot with a big zoom and I thought this Kodak had great features at a great price. After working with the camera a few days I was able to get consistently excellent pictures. The zoom is great, there is almost no shutter lag and shot to shot time is excellent. But, when I took snapshots indoors using the flash, most of them were blurry. It turns out that the Program Mode has a 1/30th flash sync instead of the normal 1/60 or 1/125.
Summary: 1.5 years later... I bought this camera a mere year and a half ago. At first, I was very pleased with it. BUT... The focus when dealing with close-ups does not pick up object easily. Its a real effort to get it to focus properly. It goes through the batteries like no tomorrow AND, this is the best part. The flash stopped responding one day. out of the blue. I've crabbed a lot about this camera. I did take awesome shots with it, the zoom being probably its best feature.
Summary: This camera take nice pictures, and is very easy to use. However the video mode is supposed to support HD resolution 1280 x 720. the movies appear ok on cameras screen but when downloaded to Kodaks Easyshare software the video's appear choppy and are unusable. (revised) After checking the system requirements my processor is too slow. I tried on a faster computer and they worked.
Summary: Pues eso, que con pilas de ni-mh no llegas ni a la puerta. Lo suyo es comprar 2 baterias de litio Klic-8000 y el cargador y eso si que es autonomia. O unas pilas de litio cr-v3 recargables tambien servirian. Por lo demas, genial.
Summary: Bueno, tengo 3 camaras de estas y con las tres tengo el mismo problema, las compre porque es de lo ultimo y decia sonido estereo, high definition, etc... y asi es. Pero yo necesito una camara que haga fotos y videos bien... antes tenia la Kodak Z740 pero sus 15fps no eran suficientes por lo que decidi cambiar a la Z712 y luego a la Z812 con la sorpresa que la calidad del video iba mejorando pero el audio iba empeorando...
Summary: Es una camara aceptable, muy buena para el uso ogareñño pero muy poco util para el uso profesional en el cual podriamos decir que es practicamente una maquina nula. Tiene casi todos los controles automatizados y el lente, como todos los lentes zoom no tiene buena definicion ni como gran angular ni como teleobjetivo. Por ultimo podria decir que tampoco son muy buenas las lentes, son lentes simples de uso hogareño.
