Kodak ZD15

by cnet3tee / November 29, 2009 2:22 PM PST

Is the Kodak ZD15 a "good" camera? Are there complaints the pictures it takes, the flash, the video capturing, manual controls, etc...
I just bought one from Target, but didn't find any reviews or comments on this camera here or via google. Thanks

If you go to the Kodak website and do a search on ZD15 you will find some information on that camera.
I could not find a specification sheet, so I can not be sure what it really is.
But it looks like the Z915.

My best guess:

It is a Black Friday special purchase.
Kodak does this every year.
They make a special camera model just for Black Friday for certain large chain stores.
That lets the stores discount the price all they want without Kodak having complaints from their other authorized dealers.

The Black Friday camera has always been a current model with a few minor changes. And so far, it has been a good deal for the customer.

Here is a review of the Z915:

Read it and see what you think.
Let us know if my guess is correct or not.

Okay. It seems like a deal at $129 (yes, on black friday)...but it doesn't come with memory, or a rechargable battery/unit...but I am curious about what they call a PASM for more control. Thanks.

You can get NiMH AA batteries and charger for about $10 - $15.
I would recommend you do.
Few cameras come with a memory card any more.


PASM are four positions on the mode control on the top of the camera.
Program Mode
Aperture Priority
Shutter Priority
Manual

These are the four manual settings that sets this camera apart from just another digital camera.
They give you the option of choosing the shutter speed or aperture setting. You can control the exposure instead of the camera.

If you don't want to use them, just put the camera in Auto mode and let the camera do the thinking.

Here is a write-up that should help you understand Exposure settings:
