Kodak EasyShare Z981 14MP Digital Camera

Kodak EasyShare Z981 great camera. very easy to use. great low light pictures.

so simple to figure out the settings. and there is a quick click setting for just about every condition you will need.

I'd like to also state I own a little Kodak Z915 pocket cam I like to carry around to catch candid moments without the fear of having more expensive equipment damaged or stolen.

The Z981 touts a 14 MP 26X zoom lens in contrast to the 10 MP 10X zoom in the Z915. Comparing pics taken with both cameras of the same subjects, it's quite evident the Z915 image quality (color and detail) beats out the rather soft, off-color and slightly unclear images produced by the Z981.

This Best-Selling Camera tend to SELL OUT VERY FAST!!
If this is a MUST HAVE Camera, be sure to order now to avoid disappointment.

Technical Details
  • 14-megapixel resolution for stunning prints up to 30 x 40 inches
  • 26x optical zoom and 26mm wide-angle lens; 3-inch bright LCD
  • One-button upload to YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, and Kodak Gallery sites, plus e-mail
  • Vertical shutter release, detachable vertical grip; Fast click-to-capture speed (<0.2 sec.)
  • Capture images to SD/SDHC memory cards (not included)

  • The On/Off toggle switch is awkwardly placed. It is almost impossible to turn the camera on (or off) without moving (changing) the Mode dial.
  • The battery compartment is easy to open but very difficult to close and lock (I use my car key to slide it). Also, make sure the camera works once you have locked it. For some reason, this seems to be a problem.
  • A hotshoe and tilting view screen would have been nice but I knew from the specs that I would get neither.
  • The zoom on the back of the camera (rather than on the top) is awkward but I will get use to it.
  • I would have gladly paid an extra $50 to have the camera built out of heavy duty plastic.

  • The photo quality is first rate.
  • The zoom is smooth but, keep in mind that in high power, you really need to steady the camera (I use a monopod).
  • The video automatically includes sound (not so with all cameras).
  • The video is very high quality (1280x720) and the optical zoom works in video mode. When playing this video, it fills my entire computer monitor - not just a little window in the middle of the monitor.
  • It uses SD cards. This doesn't sound like much but these are much cheaper than the proprietary cards that some cameras use.
  • It uses AA batteries. Since I travel a lot in the Amazon, built-in (or proprietary) rechargeable batteries are not an option for me.
  • I love having a separate button for all of the different functions. Most cameras have a Function button that you push and then get totally lost in the maze of options, sub-options and sub-sub-options.
  • The price is great. I have never paid less that $600 for a digital camera.
