Excellent image quality
Image Stabilization works even up to 20X optical/digital zoom combo
12X Optical zoom is great
Flash power can be controlled and is more than enough power for fill or indoor flash
Build quality is good for a camera of this price point
Pop-Up Flash comes on when power on switch is pressed..minor nuisance.
Would recommend this camera to anyone who wants to get up close and personal with the action.

tried different cameras and almost bought an SLR but my neighbor had this camera and was so happy with it I decided to try it, and let me tell you i am glad i did because it is my new favorite toy. i have had it for a month and i use it almost every day. the picture quality is great and the software that comes with it is great too, there are so many things you can do with it, cropping, red-eye remover, it even fixes the minor blemishes on someone's face in the picture. The zoom on this thing is amazing, I couldn't believe it. I am super happy with this camera. I did read all of the reviews and yes the batteries are an issue, but i bought re-chargeable batteries with the wall charger and the car charger, so no matter where i go they can be charged and also the flash comes up everytime you turn the camera on but all you have to do is push it back down, no big deal. If you ask me this camera is great and I am glad I bought it, if your on the fence, just do it, you won't regret the buy.
I bought this the day after Thanksgiving - when the prices are supposed to be super cheap. Imagine my surprise when I see it on a 'special buy' today for twenty dollars less! Other than that, great camera. Takes very clear pictures. I bought it because I am a yearbook sponsor at a middle school, and mainly use it for sports shots. It performs as expected.
To get a camera like this for $149 was shocking to me. When I shop for a camera, I want a camera with the highest optical zoom and good features for the lowest price. I found it!!! It takes very clear pics. I attached some of my dog. The 1st thing I don't like is the fact the flash pops up when you turn the camera on. The 2nd thing I don't like is the video volume. The subject has to be pretty loud in order to hear the sound on playback. I'll have to test it some more. I recommend this product.
Very disappionted to recieve the camera and realize it has no view finder. The screen on the back reflects light so badly that all one can see when taking a picture is the photographers own face. I wonder why the new cameras do not have view finders-it would be so much nicer to have the choice.
The Kodak ZD8612 is an excellent camera for the most avid camera user to the beginner.The pictures are sharp and true to life.The zoom is an integral part of taking good pictures.
This camera was a big decision for me. I am glad I chose this particular one after much consideration. It takes very nice pictures and has some features that I was not even aware of when I bought it, like the capability to press a button and the camera will take continuous shots every couple of seconds until you stop it, at which point it saves the last four shots. This is recommended for a child blowing out birthday candles and I'm sure there are other uses so that you do not miss that penultimate moment. I'm not looking to take professional photos, just nice shots of family get togethers and vacations that come out bright and clear. This was definitely a good choice.
Despite some of the other reviews, this is an AWESOME camera, and this is coming from someone who knows cameras. Even at full zoom it takes wonderful pictures! Great for pictures of the kids too!
This is a very nice camera. It has all the features I wanted and is easy to use. I took pictures of my children at their Christmas play and for the 1st time the pictures were clear and not to dark. I can zoom and still get good pictures with good lighting. I am a little disappointed in the delay. My son is in constant motion and I usually miss the shot I was going for with him. I am hoping as I learn more about the camera that I will find a function for quick motions. I have had the camera for 2 weeks, taken lots of pictures and a few videos. I am very pleased!
Excellent price for a top quality product. This product takes great pictures with ease. Professional photos without effort.
This camera is good for taking pictures, video audio does not come out as clear as it should. When I was recording it had a lot of static and I couldn't even hear the music that was being sung. so if you are getting for video purposes I suggest you go with another camera.
I bought this camera on sale at my local walmart for $129, and I am NOT pleased! I am experienced with digital cameras, and needless to say this camera is a waste of money and I will be returning it. The pictures always turn out grainy and it has terrible shutter lag, no matter what. so just about every time I take a picture, its blurry - unless I turn sports mode on, or turn the flash on. But the thing is that I don't wanna have to keep switching the flash on or sports mode on all the time, as I like taking pictures in natural light without flash (outdoors that is). So I would say DON'T BUY THIS CAMERA!
The picture review screen is big enough to actually see. This camera is very easy to use right out of the box.
This camera takes great pics. We have played around with it taking inside and outside pics, zooming in close on far away objects and the pics turn out very good. Nice camera for the price. Great zoom.
this camera is awesome the pics,videos catches very important moments of our family easy to use
I bought this camera a few days ago and so far I love it. It takes great pictures. I love the zoom it has. Wal mart has this on clearance at the store for 75 dollars by the mall. I have been looking at cameras for awhile and I seen this one online and the reviews were good so I decided to buy it. Im not disappointed. You can buy the rechargable batteries and the charger on ebay for cheap. It took me a day or 2 to figure out how to use it the best way and it takes Exellent pictures.
1st we got a very good deal on this camera for a Christmas Gift for daughter.
It had bonuses such as 10 X optical Zoom and digital facial focus that takes excellent pictures and high quality photos at that.
My daughter claimed on Christmas that my dad will be wanting to use this camera.
Looked around a lot for a replacement camera and am very happy with this camera. Its a lot better than what I had before and at half the price. The photos are beautiful.
Old camera 10 years old. Wanted better and new ways to keep my records of travel. This product does what I need. Very easy to use, as the instructions are clear. Could have had a robust wrist strap, but I'll make do.
This is one of the easyest camras i have used in years. I opend it at christmas and got great pics right off. Im very happy with it and think it was a good price with the extras that came with it.
