Summary: one of the best I have had so far, very easy to use !!!!clear pictures and easy to handle !!has an inbuilt instruction manual for beginners and comes with most effects just like the professional camera's on the market.
Excerpt: I love this camera. I've had it for about two years now and it still takes great pictures. There's only one thing I don't like and that is you can't take quick shots without the picture getting blurry; but I think it's that way with most cameras..
Excerpt: I have had my Kodak ZD710 for 3 years now I got it at an excellent price for the value at the time and it has served me well. I take some professional pics with it including: Weddings, engagement, new baby and even my own childrens school photos. I plan to upgrade to a digital LSR but I will not get rid of this camera it will be my secondary.
Excerpt: I have had my Kodak EasyShare ZD710 for about a year and a half and I love it. It takes really great pictures and videos and has many features like the image stabilizer, which I really need. I have taken pictures from stills to videos and each one comes out great, at least the ones I don't mess up. The automatic position allows the camera to automatically adjust to the type of situation of what you are taking pictures of.
Excerpt: I have had this camera for about 4 years, I bought it to capture all the memories of my children. I have found that this camera has brought many fond memories to life. It is very simple to use, and if you include the SD memory card in the camera you can store many pictures at once. I have found a few things that have made the camera a little akward to use and effects the use and quality of the camera.
Summary: love love love this camera. it is light weight and easy to use. professional looking photos. Worth the money! Professional features without all of the extra attachments. Camera is self explanatory, if you want a video you switch it, regular pictures, or to review pics just switch it back to that with a small turn of a dial. Battery changing and sd card is easy to change in and out. If you have the opportunity to get this camera you will not be disappointed.
Summary: I love this camer. I bought one a few years ago....and it was so easy to use. it looks large and bulky, but is actually compact. Menus are simple and clear. The pictures I have taken it have sold me. I have taken pictures ov Volcanos erupting, about a mile away,and the picture comes out so clear and crisp, it looks like I was standing 50 Feet away.
Summary: Really good picture quality BUT very slow between pictures. It has to process the photo you just took for 5-8 full seconds before moving on. I would not suggest this for folks who want to take lots of pictures in succession (babies, sports etc.) It's more for formal portraiture due to the slow speed. I bought it for this purpose and I am very happy with the large number of features it offers.
Summary: This camera is quite simple to use, My 13 year old was able to learn its features with out a manual. But then again don't 13 yyear olds know everything. The 10x optical zoom gives us the ability to get those close up wildlife shots we just couldn't achieve with our other digital zoom cameras. An excellent beginners camera.
