Hello there,

First post here (eek); have enjoyed Steve's excellent reviews for some time, but this is the first occasion I've come to post a question!

I'm thinking of getting myself a Z1012, and everything looks brilliant apart from one thing - the shutter speed. I'm currently using a Kodak that's several years old, and completely outdated. But the shutter speed can go all the way up to about 6 (maybe even 10? it's been a while since I checked) seconds.

The Z1012 however apparently only goes as "slow" as 1/30th of a second. As some one who likes to experiment (read: has no idea what he's doing) with long exposure shots, just for kicks, this is a little disappointing.

I was hoping some one might show me a glimmer of hope; is there any feature about the camera that offers a long exposure time? A shot setting perhaps? 1/30 seems far too short for me, which is a real shame.

Pete.

The 1/30 - 1/3200 sec. speed range is in the Smart Capture mode. The range in any of the PASM modes is 16 - 1/1000 sec. Source, specs. in the manual.

Brilliant, thankyou All the review specs I'd seen only quoted those Smart Capture stats.

Will be ordering this, like, now!

Hi A.C. and Blindman-

I was setting up a product type shot this morning and the closest camera at hand was the Z-1012, and the Z-1012 did a great job.

I have also found that the Z-1012 at ISO 800 in existing light does very well to!

This camera is easy to use, and the pics are great. I use it to photo my original artwork to send off for prints. The color density and sharpness is noticably improved from my older Easyshare.
I am very happy to report Kodak is improving all the time. That's a good thing!

Don't consider Z1012IS!

You have to buy additional HDTV dock ($99) for this DC if you wish to watch video in TV. You know there is no A/V cable bundled with DC.

There is no charger and rechargeable battery as well! If you are using rechargeable AA battery, you should replace them after 15 min as it is not fully support Z1012IS! You have buy its rechargeable battery and charger with additional cost of $45!

How many times do you need to post this exact answer. I've seen you post this answer in two different threads already. Not all of us care about video andsome of us already have batteries/chargers. Stating your issues is fine but either say something new or post a link to your previous comment.

Ditto.

That's enough on this subject. I'm getting really tired of seeing post after post bashing the cost of the extras to do what you want to accomplish with this camera.
