Kodak EasyShare Z1285

 

You press the button, we do the rest” – Kodak's ethos since its inception and still prevalent in its contemporary technology. One such shining example is the HD-capable, 12.1-megapixel Z1285

Added manual operability is the biggest sell of the compact here, and its ease of control and performance justify the appeal. An exceptional point and shoot.

Kodak - EasyShare Z1285

 

The Kodak EasyShare series is designed to deliver what it says on the packet; good quality images that can be quickly transferred and distributed to other media. The Z1285 continues in the same tradition, using a ...

A sturdy, user-friendly HD digital camera that offers a large range of scene modes and an easy method of sharing the captured images afterwards. Good value, though with a few control issues.

Kodak EasyShare Z1285

 

A 12MP mass market digital camera is still rare, a 5x zoom one even rarer, this offering from Kodak is both. Even with both those advantages it looks like a standard small digital camera.

This is a very dark grey unit with a silver flash and silver ring round the lens, it is 9x6.5x3.5 when switched off. The 3.5cm width doubles when on full zoom. It weights around 175grams. For a camera with potentially so many plus points to find it is...

Kodak continue with the Z series. A feature rich line-up that won't put a strain on your bank balance.

Good price; Good colour rendition; Excellent features

Poor drive mode performance

Kodak EasyShare Z1285 12.1MP Digital Camera

 

Looking for a 12 megapixel digital camera? Need better quality video than most digital cameras? How about a compact Kodak EasyShare Z1285 12.1MP Digital Camera which has both of those qualities. This camera provided by Geeks.com gives the user HD...

HD quality video ; Compact size ; Easy to use ; Takes great pictures ; Affordable

Not recommended to use with slow SD cards

Overall the Kodak EasyShare Z1285 12.1MP Camera is an all around great camera. While it, of course, doesn't compete up to DSLR cameras, I think the high MP does put out a decent quality for the price. A nice benefit to this camera is certainly the HD...

UsageUsing the camera is very easy to get used to. With a numerous amount of picture taking modes it can be confusing where to start. For the simple picture taker you can use the auto-adjust selection which is the green camera on the selection wheel...

Kodak EasyShare Z1285

 

The image quality is excellent for a small, easy to use camera.

Not very good for motion shots. I took it whale watching and got a couple of excellent pictures, more from sheer luck than skill. The camera takes ages to between shots. 9 times out of 10 by the time I had pressed the button and the camera was ready...

EASY TO USE, VERY GOOD IMAGE QUALITY, BOTH STILL AND VIDEO. GOOD BATTERY USAGE. VERY GOOD IDEA TO AUTOMATICALLY FLIP VERTICAL TO HORIZONTAL IN CAMERA. EASY TO USE FEATURES/MENU.

DOES NOT WORK WITH ALL BATTERY TYPES, PARTICULARLY THOSE SUPPLIED WITH THE CAMERA! DIFFICULT TO SEE SCREEN IN BRIGHT DAYLIGHT. FINDING A CASE THAT IT FITS IN BECAUSE OF THE LENS PROTRUSION. I NOW USE A SOCK (BUT DO NOT CHANGE THIS EXCELLENT LENS) AS I...
