Excerpt: This digital camera targets more advanced photographers, like the ones between compacts and SLRs. Therefore, starting from its robust silver design, it wont fit your pocket, it has a large comfortable viewfinder, pop-up flash, offers histogram display on the LCD, and it is equipped with SLR-like buttons.
Excerpt: Kodak, as a camera brand, is generally associated with consumer level point and shoot models, that promise to give decent results even if the operator doesn't know jack about digital photography. Their most common trait is the vivid colors you get from even the natural color settings in their camera models, which may be a little too inaccurate for a prosumer, but pleases the masses nonetheless.

Summary: A pleasing camera that lives up to its "superzoom" tag. Some image quality and operational quirks detract, but it gives an all-round performance that will ably suit the needs of everyday enthusiasts looking for that little bit extra from a compact.
Pros: User-friendly and straightforward operation, versatile lens, good range of Scene and Manual modes.
Cons: Clunky and mechanical operation, poor shutter button design, a few image quality quirks.
Summary: Image stabilization comes to the Kodak EasyShare
High Zoom Series in the Kodak EasyShare Z612
Zoom , a 12x optical zoom (35 mm–420 mm)
digital camera with 6.1MP resolution for large
prints. It has an elegant all-silver body and,
as with other EasyShare digital cameras, it gives
great-looking pictures while remaining simple
to use. The Kodak Z612 is medium compact in size [though
quite small for a 12x optical zoom] and will fit
in your coat pocket.

Excerpt: Kodak's EasyShare Z612 is a compact point and shoot digital camera that features a 6.4 megapixel image sensor (6.1 effective pixels) coupled with a 12X Schneider Kreuznach Variogon optical zoom lens (35mm-420mm equivalent). Kodak cameras are among the easiest to use thanks to effective design as well as the company's EasyShare software and (optional) dock. Other companies have emulated this approach, but Kodak was the first.
Conclusion: I like the Kodak Easyshare Z612. The problem it has is that it is up against some stiff opposition in a tough market. It is one of the easier super zoom digital cameras to get to grips with and I have no real complaints about the picture quality. Well worth considering.
