The $250 12-megapixel
Kodak EasyShare Z950 (
) is an easy-to-use pocket megazoom camera with an impressive list of advanced features. Though its 10X-optical-zoom lens is skimpy on the wide-angle end, its performance is bolstered by exposure bracketing, shutter priority, aperture priority, high ISO, and high-definition 720p video capture. In our tests the overall still-image quality was among the best we’ve seen in this camera’s class, but the video quality isn’t much to write home about.
Optical zoom: 10X (35mm to 350mm)
