  • I concur with most of the comments here. I write only to point out a couple of things which differ in the Z740 as compared with the earlier DX6490 model. While some consider it a good feature, it annoys me that the flash opens every time you turn the camera on, since I prefer to shoot with available light whenever possible. Of a bit more concern, if you prefer to use the viewfinder rather than composing pictures with the rear screen, as I do, and if you prefer to use your left eye, as I do, the zoom control is too close to the viewfinder to be easily accessible. You either have take the camera away from your eye to set the zoom, or use your right eye. Not a deal-breaker, by any means, but, again, an annoyance.
  • ... and when it\'s bad, it\'s awful. A couple of the other reviews for this product hit the camera\'s cons on the head. In order of annoyance (1 being most annoying):(1) The focus is lousy. It\'s horrendous in low light, and just plain bad in perfectly bright light. I\'ve found this camera has a real tendency to focus very precisely on background objects, even when you take care to make sure the green focus brackets are positioned correctly.(2) The flash is weak in low light... except for when it is way too powerful. I have a ton of photos where subjects\' faces are awash in bright white light. There is no controlling this, and in fact, I have taken the same shot several times in a row and experienced varying intensities of flash despite not doing anything differently. And beware that the LCD screen will often make outdoor photos look darker than they really are (which causes you to use the flash for the next shot, which causes overexposed photos, which causes you to disable the flash... repeat, repeat, repeat).(3) The lens cap is so awful it positively leaps off the camera. The attachment point for the lens strap busted, too, so the lens cap falls to the ground now. I swear, if you look at this camera the wrong way, the lens cap falls off.A solution is to shoot tons of pictures for any given scene or subject, plan on chucking about 1/2 of them due to flash or focus, and you\'ll be fine. The ones that eventually achieve the right balances can be excellent, but, boy, is it a labor to get to them.
  • I ordered this camera after doing a lot of research both online and visiting local stores. I couldn\'t be happier with my choice. The Z740 camera works great and is very simple to operate, I was able to start taking great pictures immediately.This is my second digital camera and I\'m impressed with the improvements in technology over my old DC4800, particularly the speed of snapping a picture...not missing those \"Kodak Moments\" anymore! The Zoom is awesome! You need to be very steady or maybe use a tripod to avoid blurry shots...practice. The flash is great, doesn\'t wash out the subject. For me, this is a perfect fit! The free SD card saved me some $$ as well.I bought the Kodak battery charger travel kit at my local Target store, the camera fits well in the small bag and the rechargeable batteries are a must.I recently took this camera with me to NYC and had a blast taking a wide variety of pictures indoors, outdoors, daylight, dark, people (co-workers..moohahaha) and cityscapes. Picture quality is beyond my expectations and most were taken in auto mode, I can\'t wait to explore more of the features.I have to agree with one of the \"downsides\" posted here, the lens cap does come off way too easily, which puts you at risk for scratching the lens, be sure to get a filter to protect it.Overall, a great camera for a good price!
  • BE AWARE!!!DIGITAL zoom is NOT acceptable.DIGITAL zoom is merely CROPPING an existing image.OPTICAL, or REAL, ACTUAL zooming is what will record an image more to your expectation.It truly magnifies the image BEFORE its capture.THIS Camera DOES have OPTICAL ZOOM!Onto the problem of MANUAL Focussing... THIS camera\'s AutoFocus function totally locks out your own manual focus ability.WHY?!?THIS is why I, (a 25-year Professional Photographer) can never accept such a condition.To have all focussing taken OUT of one\'s control is simply NEVER acceptable.
  • Although I have not been able to use it very much at this time, I like the pictures that it takes. I needed a camera that wouldshow better close-up pictures and was easy to use. The camera is fine but the door to the camera card is missing. It doesnot cause me any problems so I think it will be okay. I would like to order the USB cable so I can plug it into my computer toupload my pictures. I am planning to join a camera club and eventually will upgrade to a different camera in the future. I ampretty new at this so I think this camera will send me in the right direction.
  • I took time to review many different models. I and my family are average users, looking for the best price versus features versus ease of use. After reading the rave reviews of the Z740 I decided to purchase it. Amazon had the best price hands down--about $30 less than anyone else. There was no sales tax required with Amazon, and it was delivered inside of 4 days (free shipping).We have not been disappointed! This camera is very easy to use, and it takes amazing pictures. With 10X optical zoom and 5 megapixels, the clarity and color are superb. TIP#1: Forget digital zoom when you evaluate cameras--digital zoom makes little dots bigger and is fairly useless because the pictures become less crisp when using digital zoom. You want as much optical zoom as you can get. TIP#2: Get extra storage for your pictures. I purchased a 1 GB SD card at Staples (about $65 after rebates and discounts) and can easily store at least 400 high quality pictures.As a bonus I decided to subscribe to the Kodak Gallery ([...]) to share the pictures we take--a great service and easy to use.This is a great camera, and Amazon is a great company. A very satisfying online purchase.
