The Kodak Z981 gives you a good zoom range and RAW capture at a bargain price. Some of the body materials and the feature set look a little basic but the camera is an option if you're on a tight budget.
Good for: Photographers who want a lot of zoom reach for little money.
Not so good for: Speed freaks and photographers who like a lot of manual control over their camera
