Excerpt: I purchased this camera after my Pentax Optio 50 produced so terrible video clips and these were selling for 100 CAD in Jan. 2011 here. Also, the reviews were not too bad either. I am very happy with the pictures and features, specially the histogram if you need to use manual settings. Pictures and videos are surprisingly good. Problems: Video clips. They come in Quick Time and the .mov’s are so large that I can’t easily share it with anyone.
Summary: I needed to replace a Kodak Z51 which although it didn't have a 5-star rating, was a good camera (I am passing it on to my daughter who wants her first digital camera). The impressive feature of the Z51 was it 10X optical lens. It was not the fastest camera, but it took good photos and acceptable video. Thus, the main requirement of my new camera was at least an 8X-10X optical lens. This is the best feature of the Z915.
Summary: I like this camera. I bought it because of the 10x zoom and stop action setting which work perfectly. When blowing up the pictures though they aren't as clear as I expected but I may not be using it correctly or 10 megapixel isn't enough for me.
Summary: After numerous attempts, I have finally found a user friendly digital camera in the Kodak EasyShare Z915. Menus are easy to read and instructions easy to follow. I have picture quality excellent and controls are also user friendly. Of the four digital cameras I have owned, it is by far my favorite and I look forward to having it for a long time.
Summary: This camera is an excellent value at under $100 shipped (The black camera was half the price of the blue version). The 10X optical zoom control is well placed as are the other controls. AA batteries allow the use of inexpensive rechargeables. The only downside of the camera is that it requires the use of Kodak's "Easy" Share software to upload pictures which takes time to load then is not very intuitive.
Summary: I've had this camera for three weeks now and this is what I have to say about it: Pros: -Value for the money. I bought it for USD 99!!! You can't find such pack of features for that money. -Magnificent 10X optical zoom. Some professional reviewers say it shows some noise at top zoom but it's more than enough if you don't work for a magazine. -Auto-rotate feature. -Intuitive customer interface. -Panorama feature.
Summary: This is very simple camera with some advantages and disadvantages. So: [+] 10MP sensor 10x ZOOM Optical image stabilizer AA battery type SDHC support big set of Scenes optimal size and weight [-] Noisy sensor (for 200+ ISO) No JPEG quality adjustment - default is poor No RAW format support (as in other Z-series) reflecting plastic frame of screeen So, if you want to use this camera in simple nature conditions (sun and light) - you can use it well!
Summary: This digital camera from Kodak is packed full of features and a great maker history to squeeze out the best in inexpensive photography, not to mention it's a pretty good video recorder too. With 10 megapixels, the use of regular AA batteries (rechargeable preferred & included), software bundle to handle your creations in an organize fashion, easy menu system with LCD to view them and I can go on and on this camera is surprisingly well built and from one of the leaders in...
Summary: After reading several reviews of this camera, I decide to buy it over other models I checked, specially for the Zoom, AA Batteries, SDHC, and Manual Modes, I have allways owned Point and Shoot cameras but I want to be able to take photos that involved Exposure and Aperture controls, I wanted a Small size camera that had features for advance photos like a DSLR.
