Some guy named Balboa discovered the Pacific Ocean and planted it less than five minutes from my house. The weather last week is in the mid 80s so I took a walk over and took some pictures. The Z612 continues to impress me with it's 12x Zoom and Image Stabilization.

Please note in particular the Volley Ball game at normal distance and 12X Zoom. Also the moving helicopter and speed boat at 12X. I don't think I could get those without the IS.

Fred

The pictures can be viewed at:

Fred, these are very nice shots. I agree the z612 seems to do a nice job.Although I give credit to you as well for somegood composition, as seen in the Nice Grass. I also like the way Pbase lets you view the pics at full size, a nice feature.

I have a question about this Model?

the z612

Trying to read the info, I am realy interested and in a decision to Purchase soon, real soon.

the 650,710 are not going to be Purchased due to the fps , but they have the addition for a wide angle lens attachemnt?

1. does the 612 have this feature already in the camera, or just the telephot, as i read, I am confused?

the Pics are Awesome real clear, loved them.........................

Thanks. I know the Z612 comes with a lens adaptor so it must take additional lenses, Check out the site at: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQueri...p;pq-path=8827
