Kodak Easyshare Z1085 IS Reviews

CNET reviews the Kodak Easyshare Z1085 IS and writes;
“The bottom line: The Kodak EasyShare Z1085 IS is a solid value with decent photo quality, a well-rounded feature set, and a compact, solid-feeling design.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

DCRP reviews the Kodak Easyshare Z1085 IS and writes;
” Photo quality also had its ups and downs. Exposure was generally accurate, though I ran into some clipped highlights here and there…colors are super-saturated, perhaps too much so. Photos are on the soft side, due to the heavy noise reduction being applied”
Rating: N/A

GoodGearGuide reviews the Kodak Easyshare Z1085 IS and writes;
” Kodak’s EasyShare Z1085 is a decent but not outstanding advanced compact camera. It has some nifty features, but the images aren’t quite up to scratch and it can get slow when the small buffer fills up.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

DCR reviews the Kodak Easyshare Z1085 IS and writes;
Pros: Polished, high-function interface, Solid speed and performance all around, Avoids bloated, useless soft features, Vivid Kodak color reproduction. Cons: Macro mode isn’t much, AF requires some finessing for consistent results, Too much intrusive noise reduction, No way to dial back sharpness without losing detail.”
Rating: N/A

TrustedReviews reviews the Kodak Easyshare Z1085 IS and writes;
” Build quality and design are reasonably good, the image stabilisation system works well and the camera is certainly easy to use, but it has a limited range of features and its overall performance leaves a lot to be desired. Image quality too could be a lot better.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Kodak Easyshare Z1085 IS and writes;
“Overall we can’t help feeling a bit disappointed. It feels as though the numbers have been geared up to 10 megapixels and HD video but without rounding off the whole package”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

ThinkCamera reviews the Kodak Easyshare Z1085 IS and writes;
“n the case of the Z1085 you get a decent, useable compact that does exactly what it says on the box – it even throws a bit of fun into the works, so a highly recommended compact all in all.”
