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.
Excellent product, though eats batteries. Use lithium ion, problem solved.

Summary: An Excellent camera, producing good quality images. The optical zoom is what gravitated me towards this camera. However, it EATS batteries at an alarming rate! Using Lithium ion solves this problem, but otherwise bring spares with you if you are going somewhere!
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: I bought this on "Black Friday" 2007 and it is a good camera. I'm now selling it because of a few things. The first being personal, although I don't mind the size, I found that I take less pictures because of it's larger body. Second because of the shorter battery life, and third being the lag time. That stuff is in all of the other reviews. Now that I read these other reviews and see that it's holding it's price I almost want to keep it.
Summary: This is a very nice camera the picture quality is very good even though better cams are available this one gets the job done very nicely internal memory is small however the sd memory card makes up for that the 10X zoom is very nice and once you take the picture you can zoom in further very cool feature also the panaramic mode is super cool cant wait to use at the grand canyon happy shoping hope this was helpfull
Summary: Nice camera and it takes good pictures. I love the zoom and the flash system. I love the price that I got it for and it is well worth the money I paid. On the dark side of this review, the viewer is very grainy and unclear. It seems difficult to learn the aspects which an amateur can produce complimentary photos, but this camera has the ability and with some practice maybe I'll learn.
