  • Excerpt: One of the fastest growing segments in digital photography is the "super zoom" category. These cameras, with lenses greater han 18X, offer an incredible zoom range in fairly compact bodies.

Digital Camera Review
5 June 2009
  • Summary: Back in the late ’60s I carried a Kodak Instamatic camera with me to drag races at tracks across southern California, snapping photos of cars and drivers in the pits. In 1975 I graduated to a Nikon F2, with Kodak remaining almost exclusively my film of choice.
  • Pros: 720p HD Video, Manual Controls, RAW
  • Cons: High ISO noise, Large size, Battery life

Kodak EasyShare Z980 review

Digital Arts
9 February 2015
  • Excerpt: As manufacturers produce more megazoom cameras with similarly astounding capabilities (the 26mm-to-624mm-equivalent lens that's now de rigueur comes to mind), pinpointing the features that make a camera unique becomes more difficult.
  • Pros: Additional vertical shutter button; shoots in RAW and JPEG.
  • Cons: Image quality a bit below average; on/off switch is difficult to use.

  • Summary: : The Kodak Easyshare Z980 has quite a few quirks and peculiarities, for example, it provides full manual controls, plus RAW support, but no manual white balance! The video mode is great on paper letting you use the optical zoom and record in 720p HD, however there is a constantly flashing red light...
  • Pros: Very easy to use, Good build quality, Good image quality - very bright colour, Wide angle 24x optical zoom lens with optical image stabilisation, Good 3" screen, Excellent 1cm macro mode, Focus assist lamp, Good video mode (HD 16:9 aspect ratio, allows use of the optical zoom, 30fps etc), EVF use...
  • Cons: Noise visible at ISO64, Strong purple fringing when using full zoom, Vignetting when using full zoom, Lacks Manual White Balance!, Handgrip makes camera quite bulky, Shutter switch slows down operation, Flashing red light when recording videos, Poor lens cap pops off

If you can cope with the weight and size, the Kodak EasyShare Z980 is a solid buy

  • Summary: If you don't mind the additional weight and size, and you can overlook the slight shortcomings in imaging, the Kodak EasyShare Z980 is a solid buy. Its speed makes it a winner of a camera, even if Kodak isn't as sexy as other brands.
  • Pros: Additional vertical shutter button, Shoots in RAW and JPEG
  • Cons: Image quality a bit below average, on/off switch is difficult to use

  • Excerpt: If only camera manufacturers focused as much on quality, as they did with cramping up spec sheets with as many useless features as possible, life would be so much better for everyone. Kodak's gone down a similar path with the feature-rich Easyshare Z980.

25 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Kodak's latest ultra-zoom camera is nothing if not competitive. Its 24x zoom is the biggest we've ever seen, and there's a 3in LCD screen and 720p HD video mode with stereo audio.

  • Summary: The Kodak EasyShare Z980 super-zoom camera offers a lot on paper, but some serious flaws make it hard to recommend to either beginners or more experienced users alike. Image quality is at the heart of any camera, but unfortunately it's also at the top of the Z980's list of problems.
