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: I owned a Kodak Z650 and loved it. I broke it after years of use and bought the Z981. I was so disappointed. It does not take as good of pictures, it's harder to get a good video out of it, and it cost more. It also has a lot of plastic parts so it breaks easily. I get by with it, but for the money I would not recommend it.
Excerpt: I really like this camera as it does a lot for what I do. I am an avid photographer, and this camera has many different lenses in which I can use. have not found a better camera yet, however I am still looking for something better than this camera as this does not have all the features which I would like. This camera is fairly rugged as well, as I have dropped it several times without any major incidence. I only recieved a scratch from the two times I have dropped it.
Excerpt: A few things. In cold weather, batteries can lose their charge. So keep them warm in your pocket until you are using the camera. Also, they can lose their capacity if not used for long periods of time.Lastly, when you first get rechargeables like the Ni-MH Batteries, you should charge them overnight, deplete them, charge them overnight, deplete and then you can charge them in about an hour and a half.
Excerpt: I love the quality of the pictures I am able to take with my new camera. It zooms quickly and to a great distance.I love how it feels in my hand (comfortable to hold and easy to stabilize). The strap that it comes with is very sturdy and comfortable to wear around the neck. I was able to find a case for it that protects it but wasn't too expensive.
Excerpt: Overall, this is an ok camera. It's excellent as a point and shoot if that's what you're after. Mine has always had issues if I try to turn off the flash: things are blurry even in broad daylight without it, even with appropriate settings. As long as the flash is on, there are no problems, but I don't like having to always use the flash. The zoom capabilities are excellent, and they are what initially drew me to this camera.
The Kodak EasyShare Z981 Digital Camera does the job

Excerpt: The Kodak EasyShare Z981 Digital Camera does the job. The one I purchased has 26x optical zoom and 26mm wide-angle lens, 3-inch bright LCD and 14-megapixel resolution. I like about it is that you can just use One-button to upload to anyway you want such as Facebook, The photo Galleries of your choice, email, and even YouTube. I bough an extra SD/SDHC memory cards which was not included, and that's too bad, for the price I paid for.
Great for everyday use but not special occasion photos

Excerpt: I am mostly happy with this camera in that it takes the pictures I want to take in most conditions. Without the flash, it can be difficult to get the right shot, so if you plan on using the camera at, say, an aquarium, you might have some trouble. With the flash on, it'll glare off the glass. With it off, you won't see much inside the tank unless the lighting inside is really good. However, I would say 85% of the time, I'm able to get the shot I want.
Good Pictures, Average Engineering, Poor File Protocol

Summary: First Impressions When the camera arrived, I opened it immediately. My general test for items of this ilk is this: can I mostly operate it, i.e., use the basic features, without looking at the manual. The Kodak Z981 is very intuitive and I was snapping, viewing and deleting pictures in a matter of minutes. For me, the camera layout is very logical.
