Kodak EasyShare Z612 review


Kodak has released another superzoomer with a bargain price tag into the wild. Is the picture quality good enough to make it a hot buy?

If it fell out of a cracker you’d be happy. Otherwise you might wish you’d upped your budget

Kodak Easyshare Z612


A relatively straightforward super zoom camera. The Kodak Easyshare Z612 is available at a reasonable price and provides an alternative to the more expensive super zoom models from the likes of Canon and Sony.

Ease of use

Loss of detail in light areas of photos

"I found it hard to find fault with the Kodak Easyshare Z612. It has more features than a lot of its direct competitors, yet retains a good level of ease of use. Picture quality compares well with other models and it is well worth considering."

Kodak Z612 Zoom Review


The Kodak Z612 is medium compact in size [though quite small for a 12x optical zoom] and will fit in your coat pocket. The best way to carry it is with the neck strap comfortably slung around your neck or shoulders.

Review: Kodak EasyShare z612


Featuring a monster 12X optical zoom and image stabilisation, the 6MP Kodak z612 offers a lot in a small package ? but how does it perform?

Eyepiece viewfinder, image stabilisation, h-u-g-e zoom, great image quality and full manual controls as well as a sensible set of scene modes.

Body is rather cramped, some controls are illogical, focussing can take some getting used to, defocused areas of pictures can look smeared.

I really thought I was going to hate this camera. It is small and plasticky and a lot of the controls can be quite fiddly. I forgave it a lot of this when I saw the pictures. The camera delivers some really nice images and the zoom has a fantastic...

Powerful 12X zoom Thumbwheel for manual controls

Mediocre image quality

In our battery tests, we took a respectable 342 shots on a single charge of the Z612's lithium-ion battery, earning the model a battery-life score of Very Good. If you forget to charge the battery, you can always drop in a widely available CRV3 cell....

Kodak EasyShare Z612 review


Kodak's 6.1-megapixel EasyShare Z612 looks like a Lilliputian SLR. But as with the crafty little people in Jonathan Swift's novel, there's more to it than meets the eye, some of which should be approached with caution. Like most superzooms, it uses an...

12X optical zoom; full manual exposure controls; optical image stabilization.

Noticeable fringing and image artifacts; ISO 800 not available at full resolution; no manual white balance.

The superzoom Kodak EasyShare Z612 has style and plenty of features, but its image quality leaves a bit to be desired.
