I love this camera. Someone said you don't have the black and white option of the sepia but you do and they turn out really nice. I wanna be a photographer and this is my first good camera and I am very pleased!!! Keep up the good work Kodak!

I love this camera, however I am disappointed, this was suppose to be an upgrade from the Z612. But you don't have the black/white or sepia on the camera. No charger or battery came with this. So I may be taking it back.

I've had this camera for about a month, one of the primary reasons for buying it was it's advertised ability to use rechargable NiCad batteries. That is true..... but nor for long. The large viewing screen will drain a pair of freshly charged 2200 ma batteries in a very few shots or minutes. About four pics with the screen "ON" will deplete them. Reviewing photos will do the same. As far as I am concerned NiCads in this camera are not a real option. Therefore you may as well add the price of a rechargable Lithium battery and charger to the purchase price. Other than batteries, the performance is satisfactory.

Wow, great price ($249) and even better pictures. I'm just getting into photography. I spent a half hour looking at all the features in the manual and I was off and shooting. AMAZING detail in these pictures! Very very easy to use too. I'm going to get the telephoto lens for it next!

I bought this camera yesterday and could not put it down. I got great pictures of my dog running in the yard, and I even had my son jump from the steps to see if there would be any blur, and there was not any blur. The pictures came out great. I was very impressed.

Kodak once again proves they are the industry leader in digital camera. The photos I printed out from my vacation were outstanding.My family & friends were very impressed with photo quality. Navigating through the menu is very easy. Even if you have very little knowledge of technology of how to use a digital camera works you would gain it quickly. I always prefer this kind of cameras.
