Updated review: Kodak EasyShare Z730

This was my first digital camera. It’s from 2006, which is ancient of days in digital-camera terms. It seems so limited today. But under the right conditions, it’s still a brilliant performer. Read my updated review here.

    The Schneider lenses and CCD sensors are what make the Kodak digitals great cameras – and not just “of the day”. I still use my P850 – in fact I bought new batteries for it so I could.

      Yep. There’s just something about the color signature of those Kodaks. I bought my son a cheap entry-level Kodak digicam many years ago and shot it myself a couple times and it delivered the same great color — even with a lesser, Kodak lens.

    I sometimes think what would have happened if Kodak had really committed to designing and building a few really cool digital cameras. Perhaps a knock off of the amazing Retina line? Or even something that looked like an Instamatic 500?

      Great question. It is truly sad that they missed the bus on their digital line. I will say, however, that they were competent performers and compared well to other simple p&s digicams.
