Good Pictures, Average Engineering, Poor File Protocol

Sam, Amazon

  • 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.

Adequate, but Disappointing for Video

Stephen A. Beals "printoolz", Amazon

  • Summary: The chief concern with this camera is that it "feels cheap." There's the impression that it's not terribly solid. The optics seem very good and it has some great features, not least of which is the massive zoom. But the motor for the zoom is clearly heard on videos and there does not seem to be a way to make it zoom slowly enough. That may be something you can change, but if so I haven't yet figured out how, and I find it extremely annoying.

  • Summary: I was hoping for better quality photos. I have a Kodak Z1285 that produces clearer pics but it doesn't zoom like this one. Hopefully I'll get better photos when I use the Z981 more. (It was a Christmas present from my wife). This is the third Kodak digital camera I've had and overall I've been happy with the other two. I hope I will be with this one.

Z981

nBee1, Amazon
16 December 2010
  • Summary: Got my Z981 and didn't rush to try it out then write a review, instead I read the manual while it was on. I'll give my first impressions on it: - The manual could be improved, a lot - The camera doesn't feel like a real camera, but a bit light - Battery charge, other than those provided, disappear like water in a frying pan - The battery compartment is a bit hard to close (not difficult or impossible, only some force is needed) - A bag is needed for all the necessary...

  • Summary: Well, for starters, the picture quality is wonderful. The problems I'm having are: When using the zoom, it doesn't like to focus. Sometimes I have to try a few times before it will, and sometimes it just won't focus at all. Also, when holding the button halfway down for a long period of time to wait to catch the right moment, it keeps re-focusing. I tried changing the settings for one time focus, but still does it. It's not really user friendly either.

3rd. Kodak

EKP, Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: This Z981 is my third Kodak Easy Share. My first and second were excellent. The second, a 7 year old DX6490 is still going strong, but it lacks in low light situations and I needed to shoot photos at my friend's wedding, in low light, preferably without the flash. So here is the latest and greatest point and shoot Kodak for half what I originally paid for the old DX.

  • Summary: I bought this camera to use when certain things come up, I've been able to use it for some great events just in the short amount of time having it. The only thing that bothers me about it is the lens cap easily falls off, which is terrible for protection but otherwise great buy.

  • Summary: This is a nice camera, the zoom is awesome, but the pictures can be a little noisy if you are not holding very still (which is almost impossible to do, especially when zoomed out all the way). It is important to remember this is still a point and shoot camera and produces such results.
