Falcon-

Both the Kodak Z-1012 and the Panasonic FZ-8 are very good cameras in good light. However, if you do a lot of low light level shooting at an ISO setting of 800, the Kodak Z-1012 will do a substantially better job than the FZ-8.

So if we are comparing only the Z-1012 versus the FZ-8, I would choose the Z-1012. I particularly like the fact that the Z-1012 has a command dial feature that allows you to change ISO, WB, Shutter Speed, and Aperture right on the LCS screen without having to go into the menu itself. The FZ-8 does have a quick menu that is similiar, but I like the Kodak system better.

I do own only the Kodak Z-1012 camera. I do not own the Panasonic FZ-8. Therefore, I am sorry to say thatit is impossible for me to provide you with photo samples of the same scene.

However, here is a photo sample from the Kodak Z-1012.

That Kodak Z-1012 photo sample was taken with the Z-1012's own built-in flash. and yes, I will send you a full resolution copy as requested.

Falcon-

I am doing the best I can to understand your most recent post, and I do realize the English is not your native language. So let me share with you the following information and look at the attached photo to see the items I am discussing in this explanation.

1. You do NOT have to go into the Kaodak Z-1012's menus to turn the camera's built-in flash on or off.

2. Using the top button, found on the right hand side of the Z-1012 you can, by sequentially pressing this button turn the camera's built-in flash to the following positions, when the Mode Selector is in the Program Mode, while observing the changes on the camera's LCD screen:

(a) Flash off

(b) Red eye reduction

(c) Auto Flash

(d) Forced Flash or Flash On
