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

  • Rating Unavailable

    - 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 C183 is a mid-cost digital camera. The 14 megapixel resolution of this camera allows you to take high quality prints up to 30" x 40", as well as crop and enlarge without sacrificing quality.


  • The Kodak EasyShare M580 is a solid value for snapshooters in need of a versatile lens in a pocketable package.


  • - The camera lacks a few features picky photographers might miss—a small build, a zoom trigger, and optical zoom in video mode, but there's no denying that you get a lot for your money with the M580.
    - Optical zoom not available while recording video.
    - Taking photos with the M580 feels really fast, especially since shutter lag time is low.
    - Excellent image quality in good lighting and with flash.
    - Videos are recorded in high-definition at 720p30 and look great.

    - Because it is thin, narrow and set into the top plate at an awkward angle, the user has to press down quite hard and precisely on the power button to get it to respond.
    - There's no relevant HDMI cable included in the box this time.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - Both cameras feature a generous 3.0-inch, 230K pixel touch screen LCD.
    - The V1073 and V1273 are capable of displaying stills and videos in High Definition, using the optional Kodak EasyShare HDTV dock.


  • - Compared to other enthusiast's digital cameras on the market, it is very inexpensive at around $170..


  • - The Kodak EasyShare V1073 ($229.95 direct) is cursed with an unexciting design and a touch-screen user interface that's more confusing than it is convenient.


  • - Kodak's menus are attractive and generally easy to navigate.


  • - Colors were consistent and accurate, but seemed to lack pop.


  • - The exposure issues were especially apparent in outdoor shots.
