Kodak EasyShare Z730 Digital Camera Review


A recent new addition to the Kodak line up is the EasyShare Z730. Like many of the new Kodak digital cameras the Z730 is part of the EasyShare range so the camera can simply sit on the Kodak Printer Dock Series 3 and begin printing all or a select few...

Shutter lag made this camera a poor choice for candid shots of the kids so I returned it, other people I know have not complained about this so maybe it was just my camera. Otherwise good value for the money, image quality is good and has a good range...

I've rated this camera "excellent" value for the money after picking one up for $139.88 (limited offer while supplies last at Wal-Mart) Decent camera! Shoots good pictures and movies and is a fun and easy camera to use. I would rate image quality 4.5...

Just the ordinary focusing and image quality problems with most digital cameras in low light situations. No big deal really because, overall, this camera hits more than it misses when it comes to good shots in general. I'm pleased with my purchase......

This is my first digital camera although use 35mm and 6x6 for over 30 years. I was very impressed initially and this has not changed in the 6 months I have used this camera. For the money it gives great results and I like the optical viewfinder as it...

Very handy and easy to use. Excellent picture results. Nice to use when I leave my big cameras home

Consumer review by:

Pure Perfection- when used correctly


This camera is a replacement for a 5 yr old HP point and shoot digital. I love the 4X optical zoom and higher resolution that my other camera lacked. The ergonomics are good for me too, not to big, not too small- feels comfortable in my hands. I have...

Fabulous photos, auto, manual and pre-set modes make taking photos fun and rewarding

the Easyshare software is nothing special

Kodak EasyShare Z730


This is my second digicam (first was a Canon Powershot A70). Bought this one when my powershot broke because it seemed fairly similar but more durable. Only features I miss are manual focus and macro focus range (the Z730's macro doesn't let you get...

My biggest complaint is the file write time, which is a bit slow for regular shooting, but is atrocious in burst mode. After taking a burst (even if you only take 2 shots, rather than a full 5-shot burst), you must wait a VERY long time before doing...

Excellent camera from Kodak.


This is my second Kodak digital camera and I am very pleased. Excellent images and many options/modes in addition to the fully auto mode. I love this camera.

Excellent images, easy-to-use, especially in auto mode, compact, reasonably priced

User booklet weak as well as Kodak on-line PDF info. Add a metal ring & lanyard to camera hole hook for better security when using
