Kodak Z 915


Find out what the latest digicam in the Kodak Z series has to offer.

While conducting the ISO test, I noticed that the white balance was a bit on the cooler side, which was surprising, as normally it showed warmer tones on outdoor shots. Either ways, the auto white balance was a bit off. That said the camera didn't do...

Kodak EasyShare Z915 (4GB Memory Bundle, Blue)


There are plenty of sub-$200 compact cameras around, but few offer as much as the Kodak EasyShare Z915. The pocket megazoom camera has a strong feature set including fully manual and fully automatic shooting options. It's uncomplicated to use and has...

Very good feature-to-price ratio; comfortable, sturdy design; fast performance for its class.

Photos can look overprocessed and noisy viewed at 100 percent; small LCD.

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.

Kodak EasyShare Z915


When the 10-megapixel Kodak EasyShare Z915 was announced at this year's PMA show, one feature stood out on its spec sheet: its 10X optical zoom, rarely found on compact cameras, and definitely never seen on a camera of this price ($200 as of July 28,...

10x zoom lens with optical stabilization ; Superb range of features for the price

Battery life is disappointing ; A bit chunky and unfashionable

An exceptionally full-featured camera for $200, the 10x zoom Kodak EasyShare Z915 is a great learning tool.

Kodak EasyShare Z915 First Impressions Digital Camera Review


The Kodak EasyShare Z915 is the company's entry into the growing market of very compact ultrazoom cameras. The Z915 packs a 10x optical zoom into a form factor that isn't quite as small as competitors, but still small enough to fit easily into most...

The Kodak EasyShare Z915 has taken a slightly different approach to the compact ultrazoom market. Where other manufacturers are packing high-end specs into their models, Kodak has decided to practice moderation to offer a more attractive price point of...

Review Of The Kodak EasyShare Z915 Camera


The star in the Z915 is definitely the image-stabilized 10x zoom lens. It let me capture distant objects easily. The pictures were pretty decent although, the lens was not especially wide or fast and the image stabilization feature ensured my images...

Good value for money; built to last; accelerated performance for its class; 10 POWER ZOOM

The user- guide could have provided more details on certain functions; LCD is small; some pictures were noisy

Kodak’s cameras are more than capable of capturing HD-quality movies, this is not one of them. You do get good VGA-quality video capture, though, and the zoom lens works while you're recording but what you get is a great camera with good value for...

Kodak EasyShare Z915 Review


The Kodak EasyShare Z915 puts a 10x zoom and manual controls in a stylish, compact body.

Affordable ; Sharp, colorful images ; Stylish camera body

Slower AF ; Unimpressive lens ; Small, glare-prone LCD

That said, you still don't want to look too close at fine details on anything above about ISO 400.

Review: Kodak EasyShare Z915


Kodak's EasyShare Z915 is a point-and-shoot camera that's a great learning tool for aspiring photographers.

Though the 10X optical zoom range is impressive, it’s only one of several features that make this budget-friendly camera an outstanding bargain. The Z915’s Kodak Retinar zoom lens doesn’t offer much at the wide-angle end (35mm wide angle to 350mm...
