The spec sheet for the newZ1012 with the new 1/2.33 sensor. The lens is listed as having a 35mm equivalent focal length of 36mm-396mm. Do the math and that's an 11x zoom not the advertised 12x.

I suspect it isthe same12x lensas the earlier Z612/712/812 cameras. The larger sensor (1/2.33 vs. 1/2.5) would shorten the effective focal length of the lens at both telephoto (396 vs. 436) and at wide-angle so the correct wide-angle specification should be 33mm.

I also wonder if the real minimum shutter speed is 1/30 sec. since the rest of the Z*12 series will go down to 1/8 sec. and even slower in manual mode.

Yup, 33 - 396mm. And the shutter speed is 1/30 - 1/3200 not 1/30 - 1/32000. I was looking forward to that 1/32000 for stop action. :-)

Those are impressive specs. But will the camera be as good as the specs look?

I still think the 1/30 sec. is in error or Kodak made a bad decision when the prior cameras would go to 1/8 sec. The spec. sheet iI was quoting is here: http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQueri...q-locale=en_US

The bottom line is always in picture quality and it looks like a bit of a wait for any sample pictures to show up. I'd like to see some pictures from the Z1012 and some more pictures from the Z1085.

This isn't the first time they've botched a website spec sheet. But the specs from the online manual should be correct. Guess we'll find out in time.

Quite true although they had one error in the both the printed manual for my Z612 and the on-line versions. The on-line versions are now corrected along with the on-line spec. sheet.

I emailed my 1012 comment to Kodak and they emailed me this morning promising to correct the web site.

I emailed them maybe a week ago and heard nothing from them. And I'm a Kodak retiree. They're still not listening to me!
