Kodak EasyShare Z700 Digital Camera review

The Kodak EasyShare Z700 camera was designed for the value-minded entry-level consumer that seeks high quality images and a more powerful zoom lens.

It unites a 4.0-megapixel imager with a Kodak Retinar 5X optical zoom lens (35-175mm equivalent); the KODAK Color Science image processing chip for rich, accurate colors; and multiple shooting modes for optimal creative control.
Kodak EasyShare Z700 review

The Imaging Resource have posted their review of the Z700 and summarize by saying-
"Kodak's EasyShare digital cameras have consistently proven to be among the easiest to use of any I've tested, and the Z700 is no exception. Its fully automatic exposure control performs surprisingly well in a wide variety of conditions, and the range of partial manual exposure controls extend the camera's capabilities nicely for more advanced users. A wide range of preset scene modes helps with special shooting conditions as well. The 4.0-megapixel CCD captures high resolution images, with plenty of detail to make sharp 8x10 inch prints (or 11x14 inch ones suitable for wall display), and the 5x optical zoom comes in handy for capturing distant subjects. The Kodak Z700 is also much quicker off the mark when it comes to actually capturing your photos, with shutter lag that's quite a bit better than that of most digital cameras on the market today, and good shot to shot cycle times as well. The one fly in the ointment is that its high-ISO shots are quite noisy, although still suitable for making 4x6 prints. All in all, the Z700 would be a good choice for novices who want to learn a little as they go, while more experienced users will appreciate the more advanced features it has to offer."
