Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS Digital Camera First Impressions Review

Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS Digital Camera First Impressions Review

Physical Tour

The Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS is a relatively large point-and-shoot camera, not surprising considering the fact that it incorporates 15x zoom lens in there. It has clean black lines, but doesn't impress us in terms of looks. The matte black plastic it's constructed from can feel a little slippery. We do appreciate the handsome 3-inch LCD display, though.

Front

The front of the Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS is dominated by the 28mm - 420mm f/3.5-5.4 lens with 15x optical zoom. Above the lens is the flash, which pops up when you need it. To the left of the lens is an auto focus assist lamp and two microphones for stereo video recording.

That big 15x optical zoom lens is the major feature on this camera.

Back

The back is taken up by the large 3-inch LCD display. Above the LCD you find the electronic viewfinder. To the left of the viewfinder is a button that switches between the LCD and EVF displays. To the right of the LCD are four buttons for Info, Review, Delete and Menu. Above these buttons is the zoom toggle. At the far right is the 4-way controller and just above that is the Share button.

We like the simple control layout on the back.

Sides*

*The right side of the Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS has nothing but an eyelet for a lanyard or strap. The left side has a door that covers the DC In and mini USB port.

Like most ultra zooms that barrel sticks out quite a bit.

Top

On the top you see a jog dial on the far left that allows you to access manual functions. To the right of that, on the other side of the viewfinder, is the mode dial with the on/off button sitting just in front of it. On the far right, on the top of the hand grip, is the shutter button at the front and three button near the back to control burst mode, focus mode and flash.

That scroll wheel on the left is your main control for manual features.

Bottom

On the bottom of the Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS you see the tripod socket with a dock connector right next to it There's also the cover for the battery and memory card slot.

Here you see the dock connector, an almost universal feature of Kodak cameras.
