Summary: I own a Kodak Z812 and it has served me for many years. I wanted to upgrade to more pixels. The AZ361 looked like the best choice. I like the Kodak features and easy share software. This camera has neither. The lack of a view finder turned out to be a bigger liability than I though. The LCD gets washed out in the sun making it difficult to take pictures outdoors. The auto stability didn't work well with the longer zoom settings. I was very disappointed in this camera.
