For reaching out for wildlife or distant landscape shots you can't go wrong with the Z980. It has the great Kodak color and it so easy to use. All the controls are in a perfect position to get your best shots. I highly recomend the Z980. Problems: No problelms!

I bought it for a jungle safari & it returned me amaizing memories..... Construction : looks flimsy but infact it is sturdy. Lens barrel is very loose. Must be kept in a rigid pouch for protection. Features : like stitching 3 snaps horizontally, External Flash hot shoe, super macro are much required. Image quality : Extremely good. Colours are very live & vivid. Even muscles on the bison far away (looking like a black spot) are also visible. Ease to use : very easy even for kids. The wheel ...

This camera seems poor in construction and ease of use but the lens and image quality is very good. In my album at community.webshots.com/user/btbill at the end (lesvos) you can see some sample photos

Image qualities are surprisingly good. I guess the Schneider name does mean a difference. At maximum zoom the images are very sharp. Some people complained about image processing time, but actually all you have to do is press the shutter button and the camera will be immediately ready for the next shot. I tried it and it worked. It's really just that the camera does not let you know it's ready when it actually is. All Kodak needs to do is to improve the user inter-face. One of the greatest ...

I just received this camera from Kodak last week. I purchased it when they had the 20% off sale. I was really excited about this camera and couldn't wait to give it a trial run. I was very very disappointed. As an owner of a Z712IS (a great little camera by the way), I had high expectations. The images are very soft and "smeary" even at ISO 64 and ISO 100. Also, the camera is having a very hard time focusing indoors. It seems to "hunt" for a long time and then does not achieve a good ...

Very versatile camera!! Strong points are Macro/Macro+, portrait and moderate tele. Also excelent picture quality in Smart Capture mode. And ofcourse there is RAW!! Despite anti-shake, on maximum zoom you'll still need some form of support. If you do, you'll get good quality pictures! (On film nobody would ever dream of taking pictures with 624 mm handheld ;-)). There is CA visible in some area's of the pictures, but can easily be removed. Pity they didn't put the SD cardslot on the side of ...

Almost everything I like about Kodak z980. Good image quality, has RAW option, can use external flash. But it's two important things avay from be the best in it's class. 1/ Very long time to process/save images to the memory - even to fastest memory card. To save JPEG image even in 6Mpix mode takes not less than 5 sec. To save the RAW image takes about 20 seconds!!! 2/ The lens doesn't have a thread to put filters. But up to me it's a minor issue from two. If Kodak would improve that image ...

I know a lot of consumers do not like this camera but I find it to be one of Kodak's best. The pictures to me are sharp and the features are awesome. I have not had any problems with my pictures. I highly recommend it. Afterall, you cannot judge a book by it's cover. Problems: Cons: I find the rechargables do not last long. The battery charger that came with it takes too long to charge the batteries. Better off buying your own.
