Kodak Z990 12.0 Megapixel Extended Zoom Reviews Roundup

Kodak today announces the EASYSHARE MAX (aka Z990) camera. This new superzoom class camera comes built with a 30x optical zoom lens - perfect for those long range wildlife photography trips. The 30x Schneider Kreuznach Variogon optical zoom Lens (35 mm equivalent: 28-676 mm) comes with the fast f/2.8 28 mm wide-angle capability. The Kodak EasyShare Max features optical image stabilization enables you to capture sharp, steady shots when shooting at long zoom ranges.

At the heart lies a 12 Megapixels BSI CMOS sensor as opposed to a CCD sensor, which is unique as it's something you would normally find on a camcorder. The BSI CMOS sensor should technically be able to product better quality images with low noise at higher ISO settings as compared to CCD sensors. Video recording resolutions go right up to 1080p at 30 fps. The 3-inch display runs on an HVGA (480x320) resolution. The EASYSHARE MAX is said to go on sale early March priced for around $330.

    I have used Kodaks in the past, all with the panorama feature. This Z990 has it all. Sorry to see Kodak throw in the towel, they did it right.

    Kind of disappointed..., Eduardo de Souza Rodrigues
    Verified Purchase(
    I had a Kodak Z612 purchased in 2006 that really pleased me with very good quality pictures.
    The Z990 was not an improvement at all.
    The camera is too slow and the time between shots, specially in the burst mode, bugs me.
    I didn't like the 4 x AA batteries. The old model with a single rechargeable battery is much better and simple.
    I do not have this camera anymore. Replaced by a Canon SX40HS which I would recommend to anyone interested in buying a superzoom camera with lots of good features and excelent results in terms of easy of use and picture quality.

    slow to repeat exposures, frame42

    I used a Patriot class 10 32 GB flashmemory. I have no experience with modern digital cameras, but the inability to snap more than one exposure in five or six seconds was unacceptable to me after years of traditional photography

    This camera takes great photographs in a variety of situations, the 30x optical zoom is magnificent, and image stabilization is the best in its class. The human interface... not so great. The controls are much less intuitive than similar Canon and FujiFilm cameras I've used, and the method used to adjust aperture and shutter speed in all manual mode is atrociously cumbersome.
    Still, I didn't buy it because it was better than similar cameras... I bought it because it was sooooo much cheaper. If you can still get a screaming deal on a refurb or gently used Z990, it is a great value.
