Summary: I purchased this camera because I loved my Easy ShareDX6490 and needed to replace it. I had not noticed that this camera the Kodak AZ521 did not have a view finder. While the AZ521 has the 24mm Wide Angle Lens, and the 360° Panorama which are nice, I find it disturbing not to have the view finder.
Summary: Good long zoom and decent photo quality. Didn't come with a spare battery but I did some checking around and the company that builds this for Kodak did not reinvent the wheel, they used a know design, a Casio np-40 battery. The Casio battery works great and is cheap.
Summary: Haven't had a chance to really use it, especially the zoom, which is what I bought it for. I had the previous model, which I loved , but it got broken. I also ordered the case and I think that will help.
Summary: I have loved this camera for the past 2-3 years. Suddenly it has started doing random odd things. Switches to video or other weird setings on it's own. I usually leave it on AUTO mode but it is far from that anymore. Sometimes I have to shut it off and restart to be able to take a pic. HELP??
