Customer Reviews

Lithium Batteries only last 15-20 pictures.
Erick J. Leigh
The camera locked for reasons that I cannot pin down: occasionally on startup, occasionally after taking a picture and infrequently for no apparent reason.
Brent
Takes clear photos and great action pictures.

Verified Purchase
This camera is a relatively new entry, so there are not many reviews out there. I bought it based largely upon the hype of it's low noise high ISO performance - and I'm glad I did. The camera's large sensor (.61") and superb image processor allow low-noise photos up to about ISO 1250. And the optical image stabilizer works very well in both single and continuous modes. Another selling point is the fact that you have three battery choices. A non-rechargeable CRV3 lithium, a rechargeable DLK-8000, or two non-rechargeable AA batteries. The camera comes with the CRV3 only (the reason I deducted one star). The CRV3 seems to last forever, but it ain't cheap. I picked up a Lenmar DLK-8000 and charger for $40 and will use the CRV3 as a backup. The menu system is so intuitive, I have yet to read the user guide. And for the first time ever I actually use the scene modes, since there are clear on-screen explanations of each icon's meaning and its function. Other things I love about this camera: face detection, very intuitive program and manual modes, automatic in camera red eye reduction, 720p HD video mode, wide screen capture mode, sound tag recording capability, in camera cropping and slide show/multimedia sideshow playback capability. All at a great price point. I love this camera. I think you will too.

After reading several mixed reviews, I was a little reluctant about purchasing this camera. So far, I have been extremely impressed with it. Pictures come out great even in low lighting thanks to the strong flash and high ISO. The panorama stitch mode is a really cool feature. It works best with a tripod but even without one, it still works well. The macro mode has some issues focusing if you are too close but with 10 megapixels, you can just back away a few inches and crop the photo. For the price, you get great performance and a lot of great features (high ISO, HD video, 5x zoom, panorama, etc...) in a very easy to use camera. Highly recommended!

I have the big brother (Z712 IS)to this camera and wanted something smaller that would be easier to carry around. My kids have one of the smaller versions of the kodak and I wasn't crazy about it. It was slow to start-up and the pics weren't very good. I deceided to give this camera a try and love it. The HD pics are crispy clear and it starts up very fast. The only problem I have found so far is the lense cover sometimes gets stuck and wont close. The battery has lasted a long time. I am very happy with it.

I bought this camera primarily for it's high definition 720p video capabilities. The camera was on sale at Office Max for $99.00 and at that price the camera is worth it even if you just want to take casual video and you are not happy with your cell phone. I began the process quite naïve about digital camera video so it may be helpful to share what little I have learned having played with this camera and its video and comparing it to two earlier models, a Kodak Easy Share C713 and a Nikon CoolPix 4600.

The video is recorded to your SD card, and the video takes a lot of memory, particularly HD video. This camera will record about 30 minutes of HD video on a 2 GB SD card. While you can use a standard SD card and get acceptable results, playback drags, so I would recommend using a high speed SD card for all of your digital camera video needs.

Let me begin by saying there is a difference in video quality and the 720p does make a difference. The 16:9 aspect ratio makes the video wider and the detail quality somewhat improved from the 640*480 mode which is a 4:3 aspect ratio, though the difference in picture quality is not remarkable. With the 1085 the quality of both the 720p and 640*480 was absolutely acceptable and far better than any analog recording and most older digital cameras with video capability and every cell phone video I have ever seen.

In evaluating video quality in digital cameras, what appears to make a real difference is the frames per second of the video. Both the C713 and the CoolPix 4600 produce video at only 15 fps in the 640*480 mode and the results are blurry and unsatisfactory particularly when viewed in a large screen format.

I have had the Kodak Z1085IS for 3 months now and have been very satisfied with my choice. This camera replaced my walk-around film camera that I used for 20 years. I looked for small size, light weight, quality optics, and manual controls which this camera had. The automatic settings are reliable and easy to use so my other family members can pick it up and get great results.

There are more expensive brands but unless you need raw files, and lots of add-on accessories, stick with this camera for the money and enjoy the quality.

Make sure that you use only lithium batteries in this camera. Kodak states that on the battery cover, in the manual, and on the box but I constantly see people complaining about burning through tons of AA alkaline batteries or about how the camera keeps locking up. I get hundreds of shots on a Kodak rechargeable lithium battery or disposable lithium AA batteries. NiMH rechargeables WILL NOT WORK!

The high ISO feature is the only weak point. I does get you a photo in very low light but it gets you an ugly, icky blob of color photo (I'm only exaggerating a little). All of the small cameras that try this are in the same boat so Kodak isn't any worse than the competition. If you need really low light photography, get a full sized dSLR.
