Easyshare Z612 Digital Camera


The Kodak EasyShare Z612 is an affordable 6.1-megapixel camera ($400 as of 10/6/06) that's designed for beginners but has several advanced features. The camera, along with its included software and Kodak's EasyShare Gallery Web site, makes it easy to...

Powerful 12X zoom Thumbwheel for manual controls

Mediocre image quality

In our battery tests, we took a respectable 342 shots on a single charge of the Z612's lithium-ion battery, earning the model a battery-life score of Very Good. If you forget to charge the battery, you can always drop in a widely available CRV3 cell....

Kodak EasyShare Z612 review


Kodak's 6.1-megapixel EasyShare Z612 looks like a Lilliputian SLR. But as with the crafty little people in Jonathan Swift's novel, there's more to it than meets the eye, some of which should be approached with caution. Like most superzooms, it uses an...

12X optical zoom; full manual exposure controls; optical image stabilization.

Noticeable fringing and image artifacts; ISO 800 not available at full resolution; no manual white balance.

The superzoom Kodak EasyShare Z612 has style and plenty of features, but its image quality leaves a bit to be desired.

Kodak Z612 Review


Overall a good camera for casual clickers, and very feature-rich and functional. The specifications position the Z612 in the league of Canon's S3IS and Sony's DSC-H1. Although costlier, those models offer better image quality. At Rs 19,999, the Kodak...

Kodak EasyShare Z612 review


Kodak has released another superzoomer with a bargain price tag into the wild. Is the picture quality good enough to make it a hot buy?

If it fell out of a cracker you’d be happy. Otherwise you might wish you’d upped your budget

Kodak, as a camera brand, is generally associated with consumer level point and shoot models, that promise to give decent results even if the operator doesn't know jack about digital photography.
