Comments about Kodak Kodak Z981 Digital Camera:

Exceeded my expectations. Didn't have to pay for the price of a Nikon SLR to get similar pictures. My husband isn't the very best at using cameras and even he has captured some nice images. Love the fact it came with its own rechargable batteries and its charger. Bigger than any other camera I have had, but not oversized for its kind. I am excited to show it off. Nobody will believe what i payed for it. bought it for [$] online on Cyber Monday through [...]..sweet deal!

Comments about Kodak Kodak Z981 Digital Camera:

THE ZOOM ON THIS CAMERA IS AWESOME. I USE IT FOR OUTDOOE SHOTS WILDLIFE, FAMILY AND WEDDINGS. I LIKE IT FOR THE FAST CLICK TO TAKE THE NEXT SHOT, TOO. I'M STILL LEARNING THIS CAMERA BUT BECAUSE I HAD THE Z791 IT MAKES IT EASIER.THE BATTERIES DON'T LAST AS LONG AS THE OTHER CAMERA BUT IT STILL TAKES A LOT OF PICS.
