I purchased this camera after reading many positive reviews. Most people were thrilled with their new camera so I was expecting the same. Unfortunately, I am very disappointed with Kodak on this camera. I have been a loyal customer since I was a teen and purchased my first Kodak. I have always been very happy with every camera as far back as my last Z612, which I still love it btw.
Here are the issues that are my main concern. First, as others have stated, the battery door feels very flimsy, almost like they are begging you to break it. Second, horrible blur for everyday use. Most of the pictures I take are of still objects. It seems that the best mode to avoid the blur for inanimate objects is the mode for objects in movement. Third, I have compared side by side with my z612 and have found that indoor color is extremely dull compared with my good 'ol stand by. Forth and lastly, the delay of waiting to take a new picture is longer than I am used to. Even when you tap the button that you are ready for the next picture, the camera is slow to prepare itself for the next snap. Also, this isn't a huge complaint though worthy of mentioning, it is somewhat heavy. My old camera takes better everyday shots and is far lighter. You would think that considering the weight, it would be a heftier performer.
On the positive side, the super macro mode is a wow factor. It blew me away as my little cam has never taken such crisp pictures with indoor low light. I used a tripod and normal light from the ceiling fan for some jewelry. The picture was crisp and clear. I also had very good luck with pictures of images outdoors in daylight.
I really expected more from this camera. If you are wanting to be able to snap crisp pictures with bright colors, you might want to look elsewhere. This camera did not deliver to my needs and is going back to walmart.
I will post the super macro ring and the average shot this camera displays.
