Description

Kodak ZD710 Easyshare 7 Megapixel Digital-Camera offers really unique features for its class. While most other cameras offer 3x to 5x optical zoom, the ZD710 offers 10x optical zoom with a 35mm equivalent of 38mm to 380mm, from wide-angle to extreme telephoto perspectives. It employs a hybrid SLR design, slightly thicker than standard point-&-shoot models. It doesn't have the ability to change lenses like an SLR. But why would you need to. The 10x zoom lens offers a vast focal range. Operation is simple - fully automatic. Feeling creative? There are manual and semi-automatic modes. The Kodak ZD710 can also capture stills and video.

I bought this camera before my trip to Las Vegas in March 2008. The last time I went to Las Vegas I took a Sony camera and was very disappointed with all of the blurry pictures I ended up with. It was a total waste of time even taking the pictures. With this new Kodak ZD710 I had 1 blurry picture out of over 350 total. I am very pleased with the color, lighting and very sharp images. I had no trouble with the lens cap like the previous review stated. The cool thing is the camera automatically ki ... cks off the lens cap when you turn the camera on. You will never take a picture by accident with the lens cap on again. Overall, its is a great camera. Great color, lighting and the biggest for me only on blurry picture. That picture was taken as a test while traveling 40 miles an hour down the strip. Just my two cents. More >

I've had this about a month now, with one week taking lots of photos. I can't speak for the repair service of how well it holds up in the long run. I've been quite happy with it so far.Pros:- incredible 10x optical zoom. Listed as 38mm-380mm, although it was hard to see a difference compared to my 300mm "real" lens (which is plenty).- very lightweight- lots of settings offering lots of control, including a very nearly manual option.- marvelous panoramic stitch function- image stabilization- g ... ood (short) shutter lag time- two AAs keep it lightweight and make it easy to find batteries when yo need them (works best with rechargeable NiMHs, of course).- Plays directly to TV very easily- easy to process and transfer image filesCons:- slow to process. It will take a picture when you click the button (no lag there), but AFTER the shot it takes time to save the file.- lightweight construction at the... More >

A few personal observations:Switch it on and the (tethered) lens cap flies off and the flash pops up!Quite impressive unless you want to be unobtrusive. Just manually remove lens cap and open flash.Great being able to toggle to EVF for demanding lighting situations.And with the nothing-left-of-the-lens design my nose doesn't get in the way and smear up the back of the camera.The neck strap hooks on both sides of the camera and is great for composing and stabilizing shots using the external displ ... ay.Nice flat base means you can put it on a table for an autotimer shot of the group with you in it.Video is impressive. At full res (640x480) about 5min/GB.Overall picture quality is pretty good.The zoom rocker (on the camera back) falls well to the thumb, leaving the index finger free for the shutter release. The joystick control for menu navigation and review was not what I anticipated, but works... More >
