No matter how I priced this out per piece, I couldn't come close to beating this deal. I researched cameras for a few weeks, this got great Editor reviews from the bigger tech-sites as being a "turn-the-corner" product from Kodak. I was looking for something that could take great everyday pics but that would also capture sharp crisp pics of aquarium/fish shots. I'm still learning all this camera can do and so far I couldn't be more pleased with the results I'm getting. I'm getting some incredible breath-taking pics with this through glass and water. I would highly recommend the Z1015-IS to any amature photographer (like me)that wants to step-it-up a few notches. Great job Kodak!
