Kodak EasyShare Z981 Reviews

PhotographyBay reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z981 and writes;
“Many features seem squarely aimed at an entry-level consumer market with primary goal of convenience and ease of use, while some features appear targeted more toward advanced users. While some cameras may pull this off, I have a tough time finding a way to recommend the Z981 to either group..”

Kodak EasyShare Z981 Video Review by TigerDirect;

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z981 and writes;
“The image quality is good, but shows the same image noise that we have seen in the other 14-Megapixel cameras that we have tested. Overall this is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a mega-zoom camera, and with a MSRP of US $329.95, it is one of the more affordable mega-zoom cameras on the market.”

Pocket-lint reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z981 and writes;
“Generally speaking the Kodak’s JPEGs lack bite and contrast – at times over-exposed, something that can be corrected in Photoshop to an extent, but arguably you don’t want to have to manually tweak every image. At higher ISOs detail lessens as noise preventing processing kicks in, with images taken at ISO 1600 over our test period more closely resembling video grabs.”

    I use Kodak EasyShare Z981, it has got all features what other cameras have, but some times we get blurry images.

    Pretty good camera with 26X zoom, one button upload and share feature. 720p HD video shoot mode is another great addon!
