Kodak Easyshare Z980

 

As manufacturers produce more megazoom cameras with similarly astounding capabilities (the 26mm-to-624mm-equivalent lens that's now de rigueur comes to mind), pinpointing the features that make a camera unique becomes more difficult. For the Kodak...

Additional vertical shutter button ; Shoots in RAW and JPEG

Image quality a bit below average ; On/off switch is difficult to use

Anyone who takes a lot of vertical shots, shoots in RAW, and needs a hotshoe can probably overlook the Z980's image shortcomings.

Kodak EasyShare Z980 review

 

Announced at CES 2009 , the Kodak EasyShare Z980 was the first megazoom camera to boast a wide-angle 24x zoom lens. It seemed a bit bulky, but we were forgiving as it was a first of its kind and that is a big lens. Of course shortly after Kodak's...

Good, vibrant color; lots of shooting options, manual controls; hot shoe for add-on flash; includes rechargeable AA batteries.

Clunky design; noisy photos.

The Kodak EasyShare Z980 has a lot to offer--including a wide-angle 24x zoom lens--but you'll have to overlook its clunky design and noisy photos.

The Kodak EasyShare Z980 super-zoom camera offers a lot on paper, but some serious flaws make it hard to recommend to either beginners or more experienced users alike. Image quality is at the heart of any camera, but unfortunately it's also at the top...

Review: Kodak Easyshare Z980 digital camera

 

If you don't mind the additional weight and size, and you can overlook the slight shortcomings in imaging, the EasyShare Z980 is a decent buy.

My first thought on seeing the Z980: “Yikes, this is bulky.” When I loaded the four AA-type rechargeable batteries, I felt the same apprehension about the weight. But once I started using the camera, I came to appreciate the solidness and comfort that...

EasyShare Z980

 

One of the fastest growing segments in digital photography is the "super zoom" category. These cameras, with lenses greater han 18X, offer an incredible zoom range in fairly compact bodies. If you even could, an equivalent lens for a digital SLR would...

None of the cameras include memory cards. Instead, they have memory built right in, ranging from 22MB on the Olympus to 47MB on the Kodak and Nikon. You'll certainly want to add more memory, and all of the cameras except for the SP-590UZ support SD and...
