A mixed report for the £220 Kodak EasyShare Max Z990. On the one hand you're getting a long 30x zoom for very little money, but some tones -- particularly blues -- weren't rendered as well as we would have hoped in some conditions, in particular when there was fairly even quantities of shadow and highlight in the frame.
The EasyShare Sport C123 is cheap, but even at this price we were disappointed by the results, which often fell short of what we have shot in the past with a smartphone. This isn't a model we can recommend unless you're buying it as a kid's first camera.
The Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS has a few minor flaws but none that really outweigh the quality of the giant 12x zoom lens and efficient optical image stabilisation system. Although processing is slow and some of the controls feels unwieldy, image quality is excellent
A 5X zoom lens, aperture- and shutter-priority modes, and plenty of automatic features give the economical 4-megapixel Kodak EasyShare Z700 appeal for budding shutterbugs.
Fast, simple operation makes this a choice camera for budget-minded newbie snapshooters.
The Kodak EasyShare P850 has an amazing array of features, but mediocre photo quality mitigates its appeal.
A camera with some appeal for budding photo enthusiasts on a budget.
This budget superzoom's price will garner interest, but the Kodak EasyShare Z650's performance and image quality will ward off enthusiasts.
Gadgets don't come more anonymous than the Kodak EasyShare M1073. It takes pictures with the minimum of fuss, and not much else. While we have no problem with simple, budget cameras, there's no reason why this can't be achieved with a little flexibility or a dash of panache. At this price it won't let you down, but there's plenty of better cameras out there for comparable cost
Hi-def may be slowly wending its way to the cheaper cameras, but there's still a hefty premium to pay if you want to view your snaps on a real telly. While this beginner's camera has good build quality and ease of use to recommend it, don't imagine you'll be getting true HD movies -- or better than average 10-megapixel photos
The Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS boasts razor-sharp tailoring, and although there isn't much going on beneath the impeccably masculine styling, it is a perfectly capable point-and-shoot
The Kodak EasyShare M853 is cheap and takes presentable pictures in decent lighting conditions. There isn't much else to say about this massively underwhelming compact
It seems as though Kodak blew all its budget for the V1273 on designing the gorgeous steel case, with none left over for a decent touchscreen, speedy interface or smart processing. A great style icon, but frustrating to use for anything other occasional snaps
Intuitive, well-placed controls and fast operation are the most remarkable aspects of this budget-priced 4-megapixel compact camera.
The Kodak EasyShare M580's plasticky body and antediluvian interface might put you off, but its pictures are engagingly vivid and punchy. If Kodak sorted out this camera's appearance and feel, the verdict might be very different
Kodak may have set out to make 12 megapixels affordable, but the EasyShare Z1275 is just cheap. A decent lens and HD video capability is hamstrung by a lack of features, slow performance and shocking battery life
While it suffers at higher ISO sensitivity settings, the Kodak EasyShare Z885 is a surprisingly flexible, affordable camera.
What this very basic camera lacks in shooting options, it makes up for in simple operation and a bargain price.
