This one got 91 out of a possible 100 points via the Alatest review rankings.

it also got a couple 5 star reviews on Buzzillions too.

I had a Kodak 5mp digital camera once…it was the worst experience in my life. Their camera’s are usually shaky and have horrible picture quality. Stick to Kodak prints, not cameras.

Hmmmm…thinking about this one- need to read up on more reviews first!


Amazon $159.95

Just found out the other day that the lens isn’t a real Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon lens. Kodak bought the rights to use the name and use it on their crappy lenses

Glad I got the Pentax Optio A40 deal back in December!

Advance warning:
The Z-series has very steep power demands. You cannot just use any old AA batteries that have been sitting in your drawer for years.

Buy a CRV3, or buy some GOOD Lithium batteries.

If this camera is like the other Kodaks, this will be slow and takes bad images. Plus, they like to eat batteries. If it was a Canon, I might have bought it.

according to amazon reviews, doesn’t work w/ nimh batteries. only lithium AA primaries or $40 kodak battery… tack that on and its not really that great a deal… guess i’ll go check out the shirt.

not a great deal. from the reviews it is a battery hog and a little slow. if it were 40 bucks cheaper I may have jumped at it…

had a kodak camera before and it destroyed my old canon powershot g4 in image quality. same lens this one has apparently. the glass kodak uses is very nice.

there’s a kodak easyshare z1085 (10mp, 5x optical, 2.5" lcd) on the officemax flyer today for $99.99.

but i’m still not a kodak fan.

Three letters for you woot: SLR.

If I’m getting another digital camera, I want an SLR.

Here’s a review for it

Eh. who needs all those MP’s when it’ll blur at full zoom??

I want a DSLR

Looks too bulky compared to the 10 and 12 mp cameras out there, and its not that much cheaper than those.

shame – was thinking about getting a good “photograph” camera instead of a picture one. Kodak is getting panned by the w00t community. Gotta say, I agree. I had one 4 years ago. It was designed so poorly it broke because I put it in my pocket. Literally. And it was like 400 dollars. And the price fell to 100 two years later. Ouch.

Get a canon or a sony.
