Summary: I've had this camera 2 weeks now and truely love the thing. I read in a review somewhere else that one user thought that the camera color was over saturated. Saturation is adjustable on this camera, but here's the neat part, and you have to have been shooting kodak film for a long time to appreciate...
Summary: My wife and I finally decided to upgrade from our point and shoot camera. We wanted to get a camera that would take great pictures of our 10 month old son. We consulted my wife's sister who owns a Nikon D700. Of course she suggested that we purchase a Nikon D5000, or at least the the D3000.
Summary: I have used the Kodak Z740 for several years. It is a great camera and it was going to take a lot for me to upgrade. The Z981 has exactly the added features I wanted. It has anti-shake technology, a higher zoom than the Z 740 and still runs on AA batteries.

Summary: I've been shopping around trying to decide between the Nikon P100 and another Olympus. I was even considering going DSLR but frankly I don't need another expensive hobby. Let me just say that the Z981 is AWESOME and performs better than I expected.
Summary: I have only owned Kodak cameras, and the Z981 is an upgrade for me from the Z1485 and the Z712, both of which I loved. What sold me on the Z981 however, was the 26x zoom. My Z712 had a 12x zoom, which was great, and the Z1485 was only a 5x, but it's small and pocket sized..
Summary: I have had my Z981 for two weeks and I have given it a thorough testing. My son is a professional photographer and he told me that I would be disappointed with this camera. I told him that I would give it a real-world test and, if I was disappointed, I would send it back.
Summary: After browsing thru numerous reviews I chose this camera and I'm glad I did. We have two young grandkids, including a 2 month old and wanted something to preserve memories. Unlike several others I've had no problems with the on/off switch' and my hands are far from small.I'm especially impressed by...
Summary: I owned an older model of this camera that was stolen 6 months ago. I began to look around for a new camera and considered the Canon/Nikon varieties, but found that the expense was more than I wanted to invest in.
Awesome, great features, great pictures, great price!

Summary: I got this camera about 2 weeks ago, nothing but pleased! B4 I bought this camera I did an extensive review based on my budget, I came up with 3 models, Lumix DMC-FH20, Nikon Coolpix L110 and this Kodak Easyshare Z981, why this one...? Pros: 1- 26x Wide angle. (Awesome) 2- 14 megapixel.
Summary: Easy to use and great quality pictures. I purchased this before our cruise and didn't have a lot of time to play with it before hand, but I had no problem taking pictures and video with his camera.
