Overview
  • 1Description

The Kodak EasyShare Z812 IS Zoom Digital Camera incorporates a 12x Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon aspheric all-glass lens with Kodak's image stabilization technology for sharp shots and steady videos. It records images with a resolution up to 8.2 megapixels, and features a 2.5" display, PASM modes, auto-image enhancement, on-camera cropping, histogram and a vast array of user-friendly features.

The advanced controls available allow users to dive into photography and achieve more satisfying results, while Kodak's proprietary color science chip yields pictures with natural details, accurate flesh tones, and impressive color.

The EasyShare Z812 IS camera also records videos in HD and VGA quality at up to 30 frames per second (fps) using advanced MPEG-4 compression while the built-in image stabilization technology reduces on-screen shaking from unintentional hand and camera movement, thereby making videos smoother and more pleasing to watch. The camera also offers an optical zoom feature for videos including auto focus.

8.2 Megapixel Resolution
Get exceptional image quality thanks to the camera's 8.2 megapixel effective resolution, and produce high quality prints at sizes up to 20 x 30" (50 x 75cm). Furthermore, the high resolution captured by the Z812 IS Digital Camera means you can crop and enlarge your images, and still have great image quality for more typical print sizes such as 4 x 6" or 8 x 10".
Powerful 12X Optical Zoom Lens
The all-glass Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon Optical Zoom Lens provides powerful zoom combined with precision optics. Its fast aperture range (f/2.8-4.8) and 12x zoom range (35 - 420mm equivalent) offers extraordinary creative performance and sharp images.
Optical Image Stabilization
Capture sharp, steady shots when shooting at long zoom ranges with the camera's optical image stabilization, which automatically minimizes camera shake to deliver sharper pictures.
Kodak Color Science Image Processing Chip
With the exclusive Kodak Color Science Image Processing Chip, every picture comes to life just the way you remember it with accurate flesh tones, and breathtaking color. Each time you click the shutter, the KODAK Color Science Chip performs an advanced analysis of collected scene data to identify and adjust multiple factors that influence picture quality.
High Speed Performance
Using dual sensing technologies, the Easyshare Z812 IS provides a high speed, auto focus system that is effective in both low light and bright light situations, and there is also continuous auto focus which provides an impressive 0.23 second click-to-capture time (with preview on). Furthermore the camera has two burst modes; the First Burst mode captures up to 5 frames in rapid succession at 2 fps, while the Last Burst mode captures up to 30 frames at 2 fps, with the last 5 frames saved.
Kodak Perfect Touch and Face Detection Technologies
For great shots of your family and friends, face detection technology locates up to 10 faces and automatically adjusts the focus and exposure for you to maximize the visibility and appearance of the subject faces. Then print better, brighter and more vivid pictures using Kodak Perfect Touch Technology.
High Quality Video Recording
Choose settings for HD Video (1280 x 720 @ 30 fps), VGA (640 x 480 pixels @ 30 fps), or QVGA (320 x 240 pixels @ at 30 fps) video recording with stereo sound and capture up to 80 minutes of continuous video, depending upon available memory, or record 5, 15, or 30 second clips. Video is recorded in the universal QuickTime Video format using MPEG-4 compression, so sharing video clips with family and friends is a snap.
Manual and Auto Controls
The camera provides a complete range of manual exposure and focus controls for the ultimate creative experience. These manual controls include exposure compensation, aperture control, shutter speed control, ISO Adjust, multiple focusing modes, exposure metering selections, multiple white balance modes, and more. There are also a host of auto control modes including program auto, and custom modes. There are even five color modes (High color, Low color, Natural color, Black and white, Sepia), and an image sharpness control feature.
Programmed Scene Modes
To provide greater image quality for those users who are unfamiliar with typical Manual exposure control features, The Kodak Z812 IS includes a series of Programmed Scene Modes. Using these scene modes changes the camera settings to provide the best possible image quality and exposure settings for these unique shooting situations.
2.5" LCD with Histogram Feature
Frame your shots with the high-resolution electronic viewfinder (EVF) or with the 2.5" indoor/outdoor color LCD, and then verify the exposure of your pictures using the histogram feature with highlight clipping. The LCD Display lets you view your pictures right-side-up with auto picture rotation and in review mode, quickly magnify images up to 8x to confirm focus and details, fast scroll through pictures, or view multi up images.
Picture Enhancing and Editing Features
On-camera cropping lets users frame pictures on the spot without the need for a computer, and the digital red-eye reduction eliminates red eye while capturing a picture in real time. There is also a Panorama stitch mode that allows users to combine 3 images into one panoramic image, right in the camera.
