A great little camera if you accept it for what it is. It's a point and shoot camera, not an SLR. It has a long zoom on it that I'm guessing some folks just don't know how to work. If you can manage to shoot at base ISO (64 in this case) the camera will deliver perhaps some of the best results for the price point. No longer a current model in the Kodak line-up, I thought I would chime in with some thoughts incase anyone is looking at picking one up used. The colors are excellent and if ...

This is a great camera just for a basic point and shoot camera! I like the massive 12x zoom that it has along with the 8 megapixel sensor. I also like the panoramic feature and how it can stich 3 or 2 pictures into one wide picture. Battery life is good if you get the rechargeable lithium ion batteries. Problems: This camera is not good for close up shots. Wish it had a few more features like modes you program yourself, wish it had a focus ring. Doing a manual focus can be hard at first.

My only problem with this camera is that the photo's I take with it is not as good as my Olympus C750 4MP camera w/10x optical zoom. The Z812 is supposed to be an 8MP camera. All Kodak cameras are made in Mainland China which is a poor situation. About 1 in 30 cameras will be ok. 1 in 50 cameras will be better and you will receive a perfect 1 out of 100 cameras. Plus Kodak does not support them very well at all and are not worth repairing beyond the warranty period. The latest firmware ...

With a limited budget however needing a camera that delivered more than a point and shoot, I came across the Z812IS. I compared this to similar however more costly offerings from Olympus, Fujifilm & Canon and was surprised to see that it compared extremely well. + Good color saturation, bright and vibrant pictures + Easy to use + Has both program & manual settings + Great stitching feature for panoramic shots + Great video, near HD quality + Adjustable flash control + No obvious barrel or ...

I bought this camera for my wife a while back (she didn't like using my D80). She has taken several hundred pictures with it and loves it. She finds its ease of use, versatility and good image quality to be good pluses. We have had no problems other than battery life with the CR3V, since shifting to NiMH AA's that isn't a concern any more. This is a great camera for the average user like my wife. Problems: Other than the battery problem, now resolved, I mentioned its been great.

I bought Z812 IS in April 2008 and until today (June) took a few hundred photos. I am a beginner and this camera is more than I could wish for. There are plenty of functions and I encourage other Beginners to explore camera's features. The price is lower than similiar cameras of other manufacturers and that is why I chose this one. Problems: Cons: - in Auto mode, the camera tends to choose too high ISO (whilst it could be lower) - doesn't work with NiMH batteries. You have to use Kodak ...
