Super pics and tons of great features - Low light pics are great!
12 August 2014
Summary: I have always loved Kodak cameras, but have always had just the pocket/purse sized one. I wanted one that would do inside low light great pics and motion clear pics. This camera definitely fits the bill! It is a little heavier for me than what I have used, but well worth the little added weight. For a non DSLR camera it takes incredible pics! Would recommend highly and a great value.
Summary: I have owned my camera for several years but decided to post a comment about it, because it is the best all-around camera I have ever owned (I have owned quite a few!) Being a nature lover, who has two houses, one in the woods and one on a large lake, I have taken spectacular pictures of red and gold lake sunsets, breathtaking pix of the sky and lake, and close-up pictures of wildflowers that are as good as the ones I have seen in books.
Summary: I have received so many compliments on the photos I have taken with the Z980. It is amazing for taking photos of the moon ! Everyone says it looks like I'm in orbit around the Moon because they can see the crater depth .
Summary: I bought the camera refurbished, used it with an 8 gb SD card for a few days, shooting videos and pics around the house to get used to it, then went on a 14 day cruise with stops in St Thomas, St. Marten, Curacao, and Costa Rica, passing though the panama canal. I got some spectacular shots and HD videos I would never have gotten with any camera I owned before. High ISO, the tremendous zoom range, image stabilization, HD Video, all work great.
I love this camera and plan to have it for a long time.

Summary: This a great camera for an individual that is an intermediate level photographer. It give you plenty of options on how you want to shoot your subject. It has an awesome zoom. The the pictures it takes are awesome. It has a hot shoe for an external flash that comes in handy for interior shooting and low light situations. My favorite feature is the burst setting that lets you take 5 pictures in one second. Very handy for shooting sports shots or wildlife in motion.
Summary: The power is in your hands. The KODAK EASYSHARE Z980 Digital Camera allows you go from horizontal to vertical shots with unbelievable ease using the new vertical shutter release. Switch seamlessly between 26 mm wide-angle to 624 mm (24X) optical zoom. The Z980 gives you the versatility and creativity you crave at a price you can’t resist.
Summary: i love the 24 times zoom-just came back from vacation through tennessee- kentucky and into western pennsylvania-the leaves were turning and got some incredible pictures from this camera-still trying out all the features-it was well worth what i paid-and that was about half of retail!!!!!!!
Summary: Love this camera, but it does require reading the entire booklet on operation, and as I am not one real keen on this, I learned through trial and error. But, once you get the hang of handling the camera, you will become more confident and experimental with your picture taking. Since I have 2 Irish Wolfhounds this camera has allowed me to get pictures of the boys that normally I would never have tried.
Summary: The Z980 does everything as advertised. It can be used fully automatic, fully manual or anywhere in between . It is easy to setup and very easy to use.The picture quality is superb. The only negative is the battery charger and batteries included. For the price Kodak should have included better.
