My $95 (brand new, after shipping, taxes and coupon) Kodak Z712 IS arrived this morning. A few thoughts out of the box, at random, and some "first light" pictures. 1) Kodak needs to learn how to do packaging from Apple. 2) The camera is small and light, the IS works surprisingly well and the lens is sharp. 3) The internal memory is pointless... it will hold about 7 pictures 4) "Full Price" this camera sells for $160. It is insanely good for that money. Now, my "first light" pictures... my typical "test shot", a c-store across from my office. Shot in program mode (I have yet to figure out the M, S & A settings, they are not intuitive). Four different focal lengths, from as wide as it will go (not very) to telephoto (very). ISO 64. More later.
