I received a Z740 for Christmas. On the average, I get about 9 good pictures out of 24. It is rare to take a good ACTION shot (i.e baseball) because they are extremely blurry. Shots in gymnasiums, churches, auditoriums or anywhere where the light is not bright come out dark, out of focus, or blurry. Still shots USUALLY look okay. I would not recommend this camera for anyone who takes more than "still shot photos".

I have purchased Kodak EasyShare Z740 as my first digital camera. The camera has a nice design, lightweight and comes with very useful accessories. The picture quality is excellent both indoors and outdoors. I found it really easy and fun to use. I am sure that every one will enjoy with this camera.
