Kodak EasyShare P712 Digital Camera Review

4 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Its precision auto-focus system with best-in-class click-to-capture rate – literally faster than the blink of an eye, at less than 1/10th of a second (0.07 seconds) – helps photographers get the exact shots they want, whether action on a sports field or children on the playground. A/V output (NTSC or PAL, user-selectable), exclusive Kodak EasyShare Camera Dock/Printer Dock I/face (prints up to 30×40″ – 76×102 cm), USB 2.0 connector and electronic viewfinder are some...

  • Conclusion: Kodak EasyShare P712 Megazoom digital compact camera There was a time when the Megazoom digital compact camera could claim a large market share. Obviously the only alternative was an expensive digital SLR camera and a just as pricey tele-lens. Those days definitely seem over, now that manufacturers like Nikon (Nikon D40) and Olympus (E-500 kit) offer very affordable SLR cameras.

Photography Review
17 January 2007
  • Conclusion: The Kodak EasyShare P712 was a fun camera for me to test because it's like a miniature version of the digital SLR I use when I'm on the job. However, it's still a compact digital camera and it has the image quality issues typical of all point-and-shoot digital cameras. Personally, I'm not sure if I like the size of the camera - I like point-and-shoots to fit in my pocket. But I do like the super-zoom digital camera format.
  • Pros: Pro quality features, Viewfinder and LCD display, Quiet shutter release, 12 image (32 MB) internal memory, Minimal shutter-lag (0.7-second), 12x image stabilized Schneider-Kreuznach zoom lens (36mm to 432mm)
  • Cons: Poor lens cap design, Awkward size, Distracting lens motor noise, Disappointing image quality, Small ISO range

  • Excerpt: Poor old Kodak. Not only has the company that once dominated amateur photography had to watch consumer electronics manufacturers muscle in on its turf, it's now losing yet more ground as photographers migrate to digital SLRs.

  • Summary: The KODAK EasyShare P712 features a 12X (36 - 432 mm equiv.), image-stabilized, f2.8 - f/3.7, SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON optical zoom lens that delivers exquisite detail and sharpness. Its 7.1 megapixel sensor is paired with KODAK's Color Science image processer for highly accurate color -- shot after shot. Optical image stabilization provides a two-stop advantage over non-image stabilized systems.

The camera is easy enough for beginners, but also has a full complement of manual modes to appeal to someone looking to get more creative.

[ REVIEW—KODAK P712 digital camera ]

7 July 2011
  • Summary: The
  • Pros: It looks nice and the image stabilisation works well. Under ideal conditions — that is, with a static subject in low contrast lighting and with the in-camera saturation turned right down and with the zoom at the half way mark — you can take decent pictures. The external hot shoe is a nice touch.
  • Cons: This is one of the slowest cameras we have ever used. Focus and exposure are hit and miss affairs, particularly when the lens is at its longest focal length. The electronic viewfinder is poor and operational lag is such that any moving subject will be over the horizon between pressing the button and the camera getting around to capturing the image.

Kodak EasyShare P712 review

19 January 2007
  • Excerpt: The 'P' in P712 stands for performance, and the camera certainly looks racy with its curvy body and rubber trim. The zoom takes the metaphor too far, though, making a din like a go-kart as it steps through its two-speed movement. This obliterates the soundtrack during video recording. The deluge of buttons and dials means controls are quick to access. The white balance and autofocus zone are the only commonly used functions for which you'll need to visit the menu.
