This low-end point-and-shoot comes with a fairly impressive 10x zoom, multiple colors, and an appealing price tag.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from cnnet.com, here at PMA 2009, I'm taking a first look at a camera that Kodak just announced at the show. This is the Z915. Now the trend of this show seems to be mega-zoom in small cameras. This camera is no different. It's a 10 megapixel point and shoot with a 10x zoom, so a pretty good zoom on a camera this size; you can see it's still relatively small. Other than that, not too many standout features about this camera, which is ok, because it's going to retail for $199, which again, not very much money. It also comes in colors: red, gray, blue, black and the blue is kind of nice. One thing I really liked about this camera is that the menus are very easy to navigate. It does have a lot of automatic scene modes, which makes shooting easier of course. But also, what I really liked is each scene mode has a little description telling you exactly what it does. That was just a little bit of a nice touch for people who might not be used to seeing "portrait" or "twilight" or all the scene detection mode names that show up in a camera like this. And that's pretty much the story. Again, this is the Kodak Z915, announced here at PMA 2009. For cnet.com, I'm Molly Wood. ^M00:01:10 [ Music ]
