Pros: takes great pictures, manual setting is easy to use and set you can get pictures of the moon and stars with this camera, great portrait photos and macro is great too. All in all well worth the money. Wish more cameras were like this one.
Cons: reds are not natural and way to bright, the battery door is hard to close, sometimes its hard for the camera to focus either in macro (you can't zoom much) or in landscape mode you can't zoom either.
Summary: Just bought and still learning all the Capabilities but I've been able to take pictures of wildlife I never could get before. I just took it to a baseball game and took many wonderful shots of the players. I just wish the time it takes from when you push the button until it actually snaps was faster.But I still find it better than any camera I've ever owned and it allows pictures I could never hope to get before.
"Excellent long zoom and all-in-one camera for beginners"
15 December 2012
Pros: Amazing sharpness for zooming capability and macro mode. Flash proves to be outstanding for night mode. EVF mode during daylight. Intuitive and user friendly design with portrait mode capturing. Default settings for p, a, s and fast capture.
Cons: A lot of noise for video mode at night, but it provides very smooth playback. Also, noise in darker and low light conditions are pretty obvious. Camera design (appearance-wise) is really not outstanding.

the kodak easy share z981 digital camera breezes thru batteries
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I love the pictures the kodak easy share digital camera takes, however it blows thru batteries very quickly. I have also had problems with the memory card erasing my pictures. It is very easy to get beautiful pictures from this camera and the printer port. Takes beautiful pictures, and very easy to zoom in and get things in the distance Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.

Excerpt: this camera lets me take multiple shots quickly and then pick the best of them, i love the quality of the photos, way sharper images than my old kodak model. the ability to quickly change the modes and go to panaramic, or to the video mode is great. i love to go to wildlife refuges and parks.
Reasonable price w/performance comparable to higher priced cams
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Shopping for an afordable camera with features comparable to much higher priced digitals with video, audio, good zoom range and clarity of image, the Kodak Z981 Easy Share seemed to fit the bill. After four years of usage, my choice has proven to be a good one with great ease of operation, quality photos in a wide variety of lighting, durability and positive comments from others who have seen and used my camera.
