Has anyone tried the " Kodak Easyshare ZD710 Z740 Z710 Z650 Ultimate Lens & Filter Set Includes Wide Angle Lens, Macro Lens, 3.5X Telephoto Lens, 3 Piece Filter + Mini Tripod, Lens Cleaning Kit + Tube Adapter + More " as advertised ? I have the older Kodak z710, and don't have money for a digital STR camera so I'd like to try getting better and different photos with my Z710, I am looking at the above lens kit for $80.00 has anyone tried it ?

Thanks , Neil

Hi Neil:

I've used similar lense on my various Kodaks and Nikons. These type of attachment lenses are not very high in quality. They introduce distortion, vignetting, and lower the quality of the picture. The price of $80 is also very high.

For that price you can get another camera with wide angle, macro focus that can supplement the ZD710. I know Target.com currently have the Nikon L310 for $99 during Christmas sale. Then there's the better refurbished Nikon L810 that goes from 22mm-585mm with VR stabilization, HD Video, and with 16MP.

The Nikon L810 is $149 at Cameta can has Cameta's 1 year warranty.

Just offering you some options for hard earned $80.

I found another deal. Target has the Canon SX150 for $99. It is 14MP and has a range of 28mm-336mm (12x zoom), and it does HD 720 video.
