Go for one of these !!!

Bigger display, 10 x optical zoom & 4 x digital. More ISO choice 50 -800. SD card & MMC card, 32mb internal memory, 25 scene modes - need I say more !!!! :thinking:

Is that right? 10x Optical and 4x Digital? Is that not the other way around? 10x Optical seems too good to be true.

Yep, it's right ! Unbelievable :thumbsup:

There's no image stabilisation on this, so the big zoom is relatively useless, unless you rest it on a rock every time you take a telephoto picture.

Used the camera at max zoom and even though there is no image stabalisation the rsulting picture is still excellent.

stabilisation would be pointless on this as it doesn't have a great big lense stuck out the front. Picture quality pretty good and very useful range. Probably best camera Kodak makes as it does something unique and doesn't try and compete with the better quality competition.
I'd still go for the Nikon though.

Having a lens stuck out the front can be an advantage as it gives you something to hold firmly to to try and avoid camera shake - if you don't hold the camera steady with 10x zoom any movement is going to be exagerated resulting in a blurry image if the shutter speed is not quick enough. I don't see why not having a large lens stuck out the front is going to stop that.

That said it does seem to have image stabiliation, but on video recording only not still shots:

10X zoom during video with digital image stabilization and auto focus

That's not proper image stabilisation, 'digital image stabilisation' is usually just boosting the ISO, nothing more. I'd consider the Panasonic TZ1, it's slightly bigger but it has a conventional 10x zoom which is mechanically stabilised. You can pick one up for around 160 quid these days.

The Panasonic DMC TZI is a much better camera & can now be bought at about the same price. It has a continuous 10X zoom with an excellent image stabilisation. A movie mode that the 10X zoom can be used whilst filming, & it can take movies in widescreen as well. I've had one for about 9 months & taken pictures in all conditions. Leave the lens open on 'night picture' & get some great pictures in near pitch darkness etc etc etc.

Image stabilisation is only really needed in low light conditions, if that's what you need the camera for then go for the Panasonic !

The movie mode on the Kodak can also use the 10x zoom and is said to be much more advanced than the Panasonic. Plus, rememeber you also get bluetooth and a camera that easily fits into you pocket !

Have it. Love it. Excellent Price for this camera - where did you see it for this price?

Eventually went for the Nikon s6, and many other people did too....
but good post nevertheless....

Not totally true. Yes, it does make it easier to take sharp pictures at the slower shutter speeds used in low-light conditions but with real optical image stabilisation, as opposed to the digital image stabilisation used in this camera, you should also get better sharpness in all your photos, no matter how much light you have. Another advantage is that because the camera doesn't have to increase the ISO to keep the shutter speed reasonably fast, photos should also show less noise.
