Kodak EasyShare Z915 Reviews

Kodak EasyShare Z915 video review by TigerDirect;

TechTree reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z915 and writes;
“The features of the camera are good and the overall picture quality is above average. However, it has some glaring flaws such as an atrocious appetite for batteries and focusing problem when zoomed in or in closer objects in general. There is also a fair amount of noise in the images and some may find the colours unnatural. So even though it might seem good on paper, in reality the Kodak Z915 failed to impress us.”
Rating: ★★½☆☆

CNET reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z915 and writes;
“The good: Very good feature-to-price ratio; comfortable, sturdy design; fast performance for its class. The bad: Photos can look overprocessed and noisy viewed at 100 percent; small LCD. The bottom line: The pocket megazoom Kodak EasyShare Z915 is a good camera for those looking to step up from a fully automatic compact camera to something with more manual controls and a longer lens.”


Rating: ★★★½☆

PCWorld reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z915 and writes;
“The EasyShare Z915 is designed for people who care more about how their camera performs than how it looks. It’s not a fashion accessory, but it’s extremely versatile and offers buyers an inexpensive way to learn how to master different aperture settings, shutter speeds, and other in-camera tweaks.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z915 and writes;
“The Kodak EasyShare Z915 offers a lot more than its price would lead you to expect, with good design and easy handling, outstanding performance and a useful range of manual exposure options, but it is let down by over-compressed image files and mediocre low-light performance. .”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z915 and writes;
“Image quality from the Z915 has its good and bad points. Our outdoor samples show very good exposures with bright, vivid, colors. However, the images are soft and show noise throughout the image..Our indoor samples show the same noise and softness at all ISO levels that we saw with the outdoor images.”
Rating: N/A

RegHardware reviews the Kodak EasyShare Z915 and writes;
“In use, noise was apparent, even at ISO 200, and chromatic aberration was another issue. We also noticed that some shots had an artificial look about them, which is probably the result of all that digital processing. The supplied batteries also ran out of juice after shooting fewer than 200 shots.”
Rating: ★★★½☆
