Kodak EasyShare Z1285 12.1MP Digital Camera

 

Looking for a 12 megapixel digital camera? Need better quality video than most digital cameras? How about a compact Kodak EasyShare Z1285 12.1MP Digital Camera which has both of those qualities. This camera provided by Geeks.com gives the user HD...

HD quality video ; Compact size ; Easy to use ; Takes great pictures ; Affordable

Not recommended to use with slow SD cards

Overall the Kodak EasyShare Z1285 12.1MP Camera is an all around great camera. While it, of course, doesn't compete up to DSLR cameras, I think the high MP does put out a decent quality for the price. A nice benefit to this camera is certainly the HD...

Kodak EasyShare Z1285

 

You press the button, we do the rest” – Kodak's ethos since its inception and still prevalent in its contemporary technology. One such shining example is the HD-capable, 12.1-megapixel Z1285

Added manual operability is the biggest sell of the compact here, and its ease of control and performance justify the appeal. An exceptional point and shoot.

Kodak - EasyShare Z1285

 

The Kodak EasyShare series is designed to deliver what it says on the packet; good quality images that can be quickly transferred and distributed to other media. The Z1285 continues in the same tradition, using a ...

A sturdy, user-friendly HD digital camera that offers a large range of scene modes and an easy method of sharing the captured images afterwards. Good value, though with a few control issues.

Kodak EasyShare Z1285

 

A 12MP mass market digital camera is still rare, a 5x zoom one even rarer, this offering from Kodak is both. Even with both those advantages it looks like a standard small digital camera.

This is a very dark grey unit with a silver flash and silver ring round the lens, it is 9x6.5x3.5 when switched off. The 3.5cm width doubles when on full zoom. It weights around 175grams. For a camera with potentially so many plus points to find it is...

Kodak EasyShare Z1285

 

Kodak continue with the Z series. A feature rich line-up that won't put a strain on your bank balance.

Good price; Good colour rendition; Excellent features

Poor drive mode performance

Awesome Camera!

 

Very good camera for it's price. Check out it's feature and compare it yourself.

HD quality pix with panning shots for wide screen shots in picture mode. Good price for the feature, so far the best out there

Video quality is good only when you have the right lighting. Considering it's a digital camera, this doesn't bother me that much

The camera

 

I believe this camera is great, it has a decent amount of megapixles, the price was my reason for buying it in the first place, and for point and shoot photos, it's great, some someone with average knowledge of camera's this one works great

it's a little bigger then the new slim camera's, and so there is a limited amount of placed you can put it

Kodak Z1285 Black 12.1 MP 2.5" 115K LCD 5X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

 

People who rate products low because they arrive dead are pretty stupid. Just because UPS or Fedex threw your package around and broke your items does not mean the product deserves a low score...

I have had this camera for less than 2 hours, and think it is a very good choice for the casual photo taker. I have recorded video, and taken photos, and the quality is awesome! The picture and video quality on this camera are great. This is a good...

Some of the other viewers mentioned that this camera displays an "impressionist" sort of painting of an object that isn't in the camera's focus, but that I think is to be expected in this price range. I am going to upload some photos/video so everyone...
