Summary: Bought for an upcoming vacation trip. Camera had a refurbushed sticker on it when I received it. Didn't have a chance to really check it out prior to trip, and then discovered several performance issues, but by the time I got home it was to late to file for a refund. Will buy another one, but will check it thoroughly as soon as I receive it.
Summary: I have purchased this Kodak Easyshare z980 comera August 2009. I used it once in Sept. after that during the Christmas 2009, I found that camera took long time (10-15sec) process a picture before you can take another one. I thought that was setting problem, finally in June 2010 I called their tech support, the guys gave me a case# and asked me call back when I have a camera on hands.
Summary: but after having a few too many in the past couple years go bad...I do not recommed their easyshare line long term. I invested in lens & all kinds of accessories because when it does work; it is a great camera & gets 5 stars but I have a tempermental turn on/off one, another that the on/off button stopped working & another that takes poor images/blurry brand new out of the box. Thumbs Down long term for this line.
Summary: IT WAS ADVERTIZED AS 2 BATTERYS ,TAKES FOUR, OWNER SHIOP ONLY 2, HAD TO CALL HER TO GET 4 AND WHEN THEY ARRIVED THEY WERE DEAD.THE BOTTOM LATCH DROPS ALL THE BATTERYS OUT WHILE ACESSING CAMERA SD CARD.
Summary: Kodak tried to enter the world of "close to DSLR" cameras with this one, and it was a nice attempt. I LOVED this camera for the first two months and then I started to notice picture quality wasn't the same as it had been. 90% of the pictures looked like the subjects were in motion with what I called a "comet tail" behind them, or the hands, feet and hair of my children became transparent. Heaven forbid something actually was in motion!
CUSTOMER ALERT! DO NOT PAY $1,549 FOR THIS CAMERA!!!!!!!

Summary: This must be a typo, but seeing how Amazon takes its merry time correcting mistakes, I figured I'd warn those who don't know that this Z980 model could easily be bought for $350-$399. Do not buy this for exorbitant, ridiculous asking price of nearly $1600. The one star rating should be ignored. Amazon requires a star rating for publication of reviews. This is not a review, it is merely a heads up on the pricing.
Summary: So disappointed! I have only ever owned Kodak cameras and I am an amateur but like professional quality photos for scrapbooking. I love my Kodak P712 but it has been acting weird lately so I decided to try the new release - Z980. I liked the fact that I would be able to continue to use my P20 flash with it. UGH! I waited weeks and finally got it.
