Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera Review

This digital camera targets more advanced photographers, like the ones between compacts and SLRs. Therefore, starting from its robust silver design, it wont fit your pocket, it has a large comfortable viewfinder, pop-up flash, offers histogram display on the LCD, and it is equipped with SLR-like buttons.

The shutter speed goes up to 16 sec, the optical zoom goes to an impressive 12x, manual modes (aperture priority, shutter priority, manual) are available, exposure, metering are also adjustable, but no manual white balance. According to Kodak, every time you click the shutter, the Kodak Color Science Chip performs an instantaneous and advanced analysis of collected scene data to identify and adjust multiple factors that influence picture quality.

To help you take better pictures, this camera comes with image stabilization. Some special features include Favourites feature, Share button, One Touch to Better Pictures feature. However, the image quality is better for Canon Powershot S3 in this range of cameras even if this one does not have image stabilization.

Optionally you can purchase KODAK EASYSHARE Camera Dock Series 3, KODAK EASYSHARE Photo Printer 500 or KODAK EASYSHARE Printer Dock Plus Series 3.

By Laura

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
