3 out of 5 eggsok for the price

Pros: It's a small camera with a bunch of megapixels, apparently. Very easy to use, good options, and good button layout. pretty good video quality, but again, not as good as i thought it should be.

Cons: Although its just a small screen, its hard to tell if you just took a good picture or a bad one. yes, the batteries that it comes with run down really quickly, but who cares, some cameras dont come with any. As for the feel of the camera itself, its all plastic and feels like a toy. and even though i do like the button layout, they feel flimsy themselves.

Other Thoughts: With comparing it to the camera i already own, (sony cybershot 5.1 mp digital slr) the megapixels werent there. with taking almost identical images and putting them both on my computer, they seemed very similar. maybe i just have a good camera already.

5 out of 5 eggsLove It!!

Pros: Takes great pictures right out of the box. It's small enough to pack away anywhere. The video is great with HiDef quality and detail. I have not had a problem with batteries as long as I prepare. I have bought a charger and 4 lith nicad batteries. With an extra pair...I can take a days worth of pictures with great detail. I love "Monster" Batteries and the automatic charger. They are hard to find ....but the best!!

Cons: The stabilizer feature doesn't work very well.

Other Thoughts: I would buy this Z1275 again

5 out of 5 eggsNice Video

Pros: Excellent Video. 1080i, and its perfect. Stills are good quality as well. we use it as point and shoot primarilly so we have not used alot of the manual features, be we are satisfied.

Cons: 12mp pictures are hard to e-mail...2 to 3 max per email. OOPS! Doesn't talk back (I like a bad attitude in a camera)

Other Thoughts: Well worth the dough! Series 3 dock is awsome with camera (i recomend), Get firmware update if you are outdoors type. Avoid low quality memory cards (starts with "A")

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This camera takes great pictures and for the price its a steal. The 12 mp really shows on poster prints.

Cons: The screen is low resolution, but not really a big deal because the pictures are what count and they are good.

Other Thoughts: All digital camera's burn through batteries, its because of the LCD screen and because LCD screens are much bigger than they used to be... they drain batteries regardless of the brand. Lithium's the only way to go unless u have 2650 mAH Ni-mH and lithium back up = money saver.

3 out of 5 eggsRoger

Pros: I have owned the camera for a couple weeks now and found the camera extremly easy to use with a lot of nice features. It seems to write images to memory fast and upload via the provided USB cable fast. I installed a 2 gb SD card which you will need to store a reasonable number of the 12 mp images. The 3 picture panarama capability works well and is easy to use. Overall, the camera is OK

Cons: I found two major problems with the camera. First, when shooting scenery, distant objects are not sharp and clear as one would expect for a camera boasting 12 mp. And second, and probably the most important is the battery difficulties. The manual says one can use Ni-Mh, lithium or AA rechargeable types. I found I could take only a dozen or so photos with fully charged 1600 ma NI-Mh batteries. I called the Kodak Customer service and was told that Kodak only recommends the Lithium batteries. "Use those those and all problems go away" so they say. Anyway, batteries seems to be a problem.

5 out of 5 eggsAllows zooming in movie mode

Pros: Other than the great price per Mega Pixel and the ability to take HD movies, you can use the zoom while in movie mode. I do not have a camcorder anymore so now ths camera fills the gap nicely. The camera also is fairly compact.

Cons: The digital image stabilization is not all that effective. I do not have experience with optical stabilization so I do not know how well that works by comparison.

Other Thoughts: There are a lot of features for the price

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome camera, boots up slow

Pros: The resolution of pictures is great (it should be - it's a 12MP)! One of the best features is the HD video capability - those videos turn out really nice and clear.

Although the videos come off in QuickTime format, you can watch them in both Windows and Linux using VLC Media Player (free) whereas the QuickTime on my computer is messed up and won't play anything.

Cons: The camera boots up really slow. From the time I hit the power button until it's ready to take a picture, it's between 7 and 8 seconds. That's terrible compared to other cameras I have owned (1-2 seconds). I don't know if it has something to do with the A-DATA 4G SDHC Class 6 memory card I use (I hope so!).

Get yourself some good rechargeable batteries (Sony) because the non-rechargeable Kodak AA's that come with the camera are pretty weak and only lasted me about 100 pictures plus a couple minutes of video.

Other Thoughts: Despite the slow boot-up, I'd buy this camera again because of the quality of the pictures and video.

5 out of 5 eggsBest banf for your buck

Pros: This camera boasts the lowest $/MP cost i have seen. The ultra iso mode takes amazing shots in low light/night situation. HD video capability is a very promising feature that i have yet to try. It's also really good looking--the black on gray is very sleek. The perfect touch function reworks pictures on the camera, with great results.

Cons: No view finder (who cares?). Does not include rechargeable batteries.

Other Thoughts: I have already recommended the Z1275 to several friends. Really a great product for a great price.
