Summary: Just wanted to see how the camera was and bought a used one at Ebay. Prices have dropped considerably. The true reason I won't keep this camera is that there is too much noise even when shooting in RAW. The pictures appear sharp and descent but any enlargement shows the problem of fuzz. Poor sensor...but all the super zooms have the same problem.
Summary: Camera shipment was a little slower than expected but still within the promised time Amazon stated. Package was clearly marked KODAK REFURBISHED, but everything was there. Camera functioned properly right out of the box. As others have stated manual is a startup guide only and not the best. Hopefully Kodak will add to the on-line extended manual as it does not add much more detail. Pictures I took are fabulous. No complaints on picture quality.
Summary: I bought this camera because I have several KODAK equipment and they are very good. This camera (Z980), what I liked most was the great Schneider-Kreuznach lens. What I did not like this camera: 1) - The camera's built-in flash also fires when I use an external flash, 2) - Batteries very weak, with little capacity, 3) - manual writing is terrible, with little information
Summary: Pictures look great, my mouth dropped when taking out of package due to how light camera was. Being a refurbished camera, looks new. Took 3 pictures a placed back in box for my grand opening on Christmas day. Not worth brand new price, but the price of the refurbished camera is good with the extra goodies (x8). The mini tripod is very very "mini". The lense attachment SUCKS, looks ugly and I will not place it on that camera, I will find something better than that.
Summary: The pictures are great. The camera is fairly easy to operate and there are of a lot of options. The only problem I have with the camera are the batteries. They do not stay charged very log and they tend to fall out of the battery compartment easily. Other than that, I really like the camera.
Summary: I just bought the Canon SX10iS and was very upset to see that Kodak just came out with an apparently superior camera for the same money. I was going to return the Canon and buy the Kodak until I learned that this camera doesn't have an optical viewfinder. The Canon has a very good optical viewfinder, and an articulated LCD screen that you can easily adjust to take photos over people's heads in a crowd, or low down by the ground without having to get on your stomach.
Summary: Nikon P90, Kodak Z980 and Pentax X70 is made by the same Chinese company. Sold under different brands, all three cameras are almost identical (with minor differences, like Kodak has hot shoe, etc). If you want to buy this, buy the one that you can find cheapest. In general, Canon SX10 is better.
Summary: Tras probar durante tres meses esta cámara doy mi opinión: La compré por ebay por 180€, y lo más barato que lo he visto en España fue en Pc city online por 190€. La cámara en sí no está mal, teniendo en cuenta la cantidad de prestaciones que tiene por ese precio, pero eso se nota en la calidad final que deja mucho que desear. La coges y se nota que es muy plasticosa, aunque para mí sinceramente eso no suponía ningún problema.
Summary: tuve Nikon P90 i la devolvi i luego p100 i lo mismo hasta que un compañero que es fotografo me hablo Z980 me la compre i le puse el flash a la camara madre mia que pepino de camara en conclusion si quieres una camara bien equipada esta es la Z980 :P
