  • The Kodak Pixpro S-1 mirrorless camera offers an attractive feature set, but it's on the slow side and the bundled lenses leave a lot to be desired. Better options abound.


  • Despite the slightly tentative release of this model in the West, with the 16 megapixel Pixpro S-1 we get the sense that Kodak - or rather its current license holder JK Imaging - is certainly heading in the right direction and revealing a desire to ‘get back in the game’.
    With the point and shoot camera market having been heavily depleted by the rise of smartphone and iPad photographers, it would make a lot of sense for it to concentrate future efforts on building on what it has here.


  • With cheapie cameras having bitten the dust due to the smartphone/tablet onslaught, it makes perfect commercial sense on the face of it to see a compact system camera under the Kodak branding.
    The 16 megapixel Kodak Pixpro S-1 looks the part, largely acts the part, and is being offered to market at a very fair price.
    Yes it's yet another compact system camera in an already crowded market, and distribution at the time of writing remains limited to sales from its own website.


  • As long as you're a patient snapshooter, the Kodak EasyShare Z950 is a respectable compact megazoom camera.

    - The Z950 is equipped with optical image stabilization, which compensates for minor hand movements.
    - After a day of shooting over 150 pictures and several videos I still had plenty of battery power left.
    - I was able to use optical zoom while taking videos, which many cameras do not permit, though using the zoom made the camera lose focus for awhile.
    - Video and audio quality seemed good.


  • - The Z950's bricky, all-black design won't win any awards, but you could consider it a bit retro ; it reminded me of my first 35mm camera from childhood.
    - Unfortunately, the footage I captured was too jumpy and shaky.
    - The only major disappointment was its mediocre video quality.
    - The photos had pleasing color and captured plenty of detail.


  • The Kodak EasyShare Max Z990 offers plenty of goodies including a long 30x zoom lens, manual controls, an electronic viewfinder, and 1080p video capture. But sluggish operation and poor low-light performance make this huge compact camera a tough sell.


  • It's easy to say that the Z990 is arguably one of the best digital compact cameras that Kodak have released. The picture quality is excellent, we were extremely impressed with the tonal rendition and accuracy of colours. The new sensor seems to be doing its job by reducing noise very well at the low to mid-range ISO settings. It's great to see that Kodak are getting into the back illuminated sensor market simply because it means a better quality image for the consumer.


  •   .   .   . The EasyShare Max boasts a healthy 30x zoom range and produces good still images, though it failed to impress with sluggish shot-to-shot times and poor battery life.   .   .   .


  • - The casual photographer needs a camera that is easy to carry and easy to use, so compact and ultracompact cameras make the best choice.

    - My food photographs were crisp and bright.

    - Image will remain good if you print a maximum of 30×40 inches.


  • - Photos can look overprocessed and noisy viewed at 100 percent; small LCD..
    - One thing worth noting, though, is the AF performance that was noticeably slow.
    - Shutter lag in bright lighting conditions is excellent for its class at 0.4 second and only goes up to 0.6 in dim conditions.
    - It's uncomplicated to use and has faster performance than much of the competition.

    - Kodak's insistence on advertising the Z915 as an HD model is slightly hokey, and potentially more than a bit confusing for newbies as well - call it what you will, you'll still only get 640x480/30fps video out of this camera.


  • - We were able to turn the camera on and snap a shot in about a second.
    - The shutter response is insanely (and admirably) fast.
    - Shutter speeds are much more extensive, ranging from 0.001 second to 16 seconds in shutter priority mode.
