Shoot Vertically with Kodak EasyShare Z981!
Kodak EasyShare Z981 offers simple, fast and effective means of sharing your photos with family and friends online. With a new vertical shutter release to its credit the camera also offers 64 MB internal memory and support to SD/SDHC cards for storing your precious moments without having to delete any.
The Z981 is well equipped to shoot in low-light environment as well. The camera automatically chooses from the ISO range 64- 3200 considering the amount of light available in the surroundings. If you want to shoot at higher ISO settings say at ISO 3200-6400 then you need to sacrifice on the quality front as the camera supports only 3 megapixels resolution at such higher ISO settings.
• For speed photography, you need a camera that can zoom in and out faster. Kodak knows this well and has embedded a specially designed 26 SCHNEIDER- KREUZAC VARIOGON optical zoom lens and 0.2 second picture feature in this camera to speed up the shooting process for you by leaps and bounds.
• Amazing prints of 30 x 40 inches size can be made of the pictures shot with this camera. As the camera’s sensor has 14 megapixels resolution, you can crop, chop and blow up your images to your heart’s content.
• Shoot HD videos in 16:9 format and enjoy watching them on the big screen of a HDTV. Interesting scenes can be bookmarked for future retrieval as well.
• The camera is little expensive considering the insufficient features it carries.
• Several of the controls have been awkwardly placed making it difficult to operate them.
• There is nothing new or attractive about the camera’s appearance.
• Unfortunately, the user cannot edit the RAW images on Mac OS and even the hot shoe accessory is absent from this model.
