  • Abstract:  As Geeks.com had indicated, the camera was a refurbished one, and (as weve experienced several times in the past) the only hints that it had been refurbished were the generic box and a "refurbished" sticker on the camera; without a doubt Kodak is seri...

  • On the spec sheet, this digital camera looks great. It has a 12x optically stabilized Schneider-Kreuznach zoom lens, full manual controls and custom modes, a built-in flash unit and a hot shoe, and a 2.5-inch LCD screen. Granted, many of its components...

  • Excellent image quality, particularly zoom photos, Powerful 12X optical zoom, Excellent image stabilizer, High definition EVF, 25inch LCD screen, Complete set of capture modes, Flash shoe, Available RAW and TIFF formats
  • Some noise at 200 ISO and beyond, Wide angle images a bit soft, Fairly slow to record images

  • Like the models that preceded it in the DX and Z ranges, the EasyShare P850 offers a lightweight, easy-to-use alternative to users wanting a big zoom camera without the bulk or weight of something like the Panasonic FZ20. It has a truly sophisticated ...

  • Abstract:  There are a lot of 5 megapixel EVF (electronic viewfinder) cameras but few of them have the 12x zoom of the EasyShare P850, which gives it the equivalent of a 36-432mm lens. Thats particularly impressive given that this is a relatively small and light...
