    Comments about Kodak EasyShare Z950 IS Digital Camera (Black):

    Wanted a good basic digital camera with better lens, good closeup capability, few frills. This Kodak model does great. It feels solid, the Schneider lens is terrific and the camera presets and exposure modes are pretty useful, once you play with them. The flash in particular is much nicer than others and is surprisingly even for a point and shoot. The camera isn't great if you want to take a quick sequence of photos, the red-eye correction is a tad worse than average and in full auto exposure mode, the camera can take forever to decide on the correct focus and exposure. The last can be overcome with greater knowledge of what the camera wants to do and how best to operate it. I think battery life is better than average: I did a party at night with 95% flash shots and got a good hour and about 100 exposures before the battery gave up. Also, the battery charges in a reasonably short time with the AC charger. Images are terrific! Some have complained about Kodak's EasyShare software and whatnot; I don't use it. The excellent lens and useful features beats any other shortcomings IMHO and make this a real winner for the non-pro who wants an upgrade, or the pro who needs a good backup. Buy with confidence.

    Many features, including shutter and aperture priority and manual. Great pictures and zoom. What you lose in wide angle you make up in telephoto.[...]

    Good Shots - Poor Video

    Comments about Kodak EasyShare Z950 IS Digital Camera (Black):

    I bought this before taking a trip out of the country. I have taken some nice photos with it and there are some good presets built into the camera. The video is disappointing though. If you use the zoom it has to refocus and adjust for the lighting. This tends to take a second or two, so every time you zoom all you have is a blur until the camera adjusts. It's a little frustrating.

      Great zoom, easy to use (much easier to use than my old Kodak digital), and lots of features. I love that Kodak makes it's cameras so user friendly. The size is also better than my last Kodak, so that's a plus. Haven't found anything yet that I don't like.
