By Mercedes J. VINE VOICE on January 17, 2009
Color: Blue
I've been using the Kodak Z712 for the past couple years and LOVE it. However for vacations, it was a bit bulkier then I liked. I didn't want to downsize from a 12X zoom to a 3X, so I just continued using it till something else caught my attention. Enter the Z1485. An AWESOME little camera.

I received the camera in mid-December. I used the battery that came with it, a non-rechargeable KLIC-8000 Li-Ion. It lasted about a month, all through Christmas (during which I took MANY pictures) and regular daily pics (I have an 11 month old, so I take a lot!). I just changed the battery a few days ago to a rechargeable KLIC-8000 Li-Ion. If you purchase this camera, MAKE SURE you buy the correct battery for it. Of course it's going to suck up regular AA batteries, it's a powerful little point and shoot.

The picture clarity is fantastic (keep in mind, I'm just a casual picture taker. Day-to-day pics of my son, and family trips). All the pics I've downloaded to my Kodak program and printed out have come out beautifully. I normally use the smart-scene, but sometimes (like during Christmas) I use other settings, like the candle light setting for pics of the Christmas tree. They came out perfect, all nice and soft. The size of the camera itself is perfect...I actually bought an ipod jogging case for it so I can wear it around my wrist or arm during vacations (nice to always have the camera handy), and it fit just fine.

I've always used Kodak for their simple no-brainer approach to picture taking, and this camera fits that to a tee. I'm so glad I upgraded. I'll always love my Z712, but this little guy has everything I need. PLEASE do not be dissuaded by the mediocre reviews here. Most people know NOT to put regular AA batteries in a digital camera. It sucks the life out of them in no time. With the proper batteries, this camera is light, clear, and does an all around GREAT job!

I found this camera for a price that made it worthwhile to try. And I tried it. I wouldn't say it was disappointing, but definitely not what I wanted. I am very much a point & shoot type of photographer--as you'll see in my limited lingo below.
My findings:
Smart capture is a nice feature that automatically determines the best settings for whatever you're trying to take a picture of. (Great for point & shoot types).
Button placement is pretty intuitive.

There is no viewfinder. This is of course a preference thing, but I found it hard for taking pictures in direct sunlight and in night shots (high amount of pixelation and streaking on screen).
The USB cord was very flimsy and easily damaged.
In many reviews I've read, there are a lot of complaints about the battery life. My only issue about the batteries is that after about 40 shots, the start-up and lag time between shots increased significantly--many missed opportunities.
Most of my night shots came out blurry, even though the camera was on a steady surface. Close-up night shots came out highly pixelated.
Face capture never worked (although this might be user error).

Having been an adrenalin filled amateur photographer I have used Kodak camera C330, C813 and Z1275 for the last several years taking pictures deep within caves; while rock climbing or white-water rafting. I am really impressed by the pictures that the Kodak Z1485IS is producing. The pictures are stunning; sharp, and contain an amazing amount of detail. The first day I took a sample pictures of flowers and found an insect on them; it looked like a nature magazine picture! Every picture seems to look fantastic when I use the auto select snap and shoot mode.

The HD video is fantastic; although many computers have a hard time playing it because of the huge file size. This video is not shaky like the first generation Kodak Z1275 which was just not ready for prime time. You can even zoom in while shooting video.

Getting this camera and seeing the great photos may make you feel like a professional. Buttons and settings are very natural and easy to use for a point and shoot. You will be tempted to shoot a lot of pictures and video. Unfortunately; do to the huge file size of video do not expect to be able to share it. A 64 second 720 HD video of horses was 107 megabytes. Sharing large picture files (14mp=2-8megs) can be difficult too. I upgraded my subscription smugmug photosharing site to be able to share the HD video.
Sample pics... [...]

Running on Lithium AA batteries was essential for me as I frequently am in extreme environments -like caves- where I cannot put the camera on a charger. If you use alkaline batteries in a pinch only expect 30 minutes of operation. Energizer Ultimate Lithium gives about 2-4 hours on a $5 a set.

I am preparing to depart on an overseas trip and am really excited to be taking the Kodak 1485IS camera with me. It is easy to use; takes great pictures and mind blowing video. I think Kodak nailed the right combination of features with this one.

I bought this camera to replace a Kodak 6 MP camera that bit the dust on a recent vacation (user error, no fault of the camera!). I spent several weeks researching cameras, going to every store to hold them in my hands, and ended up buying this gem from Amazon.

I have been very pleased with the picture quality both indoors and out. I am especially impressed with the photo quality in low light (considerably less noise than I have ever experienced in a digital camera). The focus is great, and moves right along with my subjects.

The video is nice, though definitely not why I bought the camera. It is very smooth and works well even in low light. I have had no problems with the battery holding a charge.

My biggest complaint (which I knew when I was buying the camera) is the lack of optical viewfinder. It was nearly impossible for me to find a camera with one, and I would have had to give up other features to get it.

All in all, I am very pleased with this Kodak camera. It is my third Kodak digital camera (a 4 MP, a 6 MP, and now this one) and definitely the best. The price was also fabulous, especially compared with what features rival camera manufacturers offer at this price point.
