CNET has posted a review of the Kodak EasyShare Z612, 6.1 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 18.02.06) featuring 12x optical Keuznach Variogonzoom zoom lens and a 2.5″ LCD screen.
“As usual with cameras from Kodak, colors looked natural and well saturated in the Z612’s photos. The camera’s automatic white balance produced a very warm, yellowish color cast under our lab’s tungsten lights, though in natural daylight, it yielded neutral colors. The Z612’s tungsten white-balance setting fared better in the lab, though its images were slightly cool. Exposures were accurate, but the camera has a tendency to lose detail in brighter highlights. Worse than that was the heavier than normal purple fringing, as well as JPEG artifacts that caused jaggy edges on some curves and obscured some fine details in other areas of some images. “
