Looks like the upgrade to the P850. I wonder if the price is a misprint. $299 (MSRP). Here is the link.

I just looked and this is how it read now.

The KODAK EASYSHARE Z612 Zoom Digital Camera will be available worldwide beginning in April 2006 and will retail for US$399 (MSRP).

It looks good. Has one more MP than I have now, but I think I'll stay with what I have. No upgrade here for at least another 18 months or so and then I will probably go with a Canon. Haven't decided yet.

Thats a great price though. My 850 was a bit more than that. Hope someone here gets one- would love to see what it will do.

The Kodak Z-612 is impressive. It extends the IS feature down to the "Z" line, rather than being exclusive to the Performance line of cameras. It also set a new price level for IS that is lower than ever before in the Kodak line. Finally, the $64 question is, will the Z612 have a RAW image capability?

It is part of Koadak's more agressive and forward looking marketing strategy, that has worked so well for them in the last 12 to 15 months.

This is what I want in my next rig.


Give me a "DX7590" and add a Histogram, 2 second timer, also a two shot timer at 2 and 10 seconds, 7.0mp, and please add a port (jack) for remote shutter, and the fun time lapse mode, give us a slower shutter speed say to 2 min, an auto focus assist lamp,and they can name it the Z7790. Hey and why not bring the zoom up to 12X. Then they can name the thing the Z7712.

Leave everything else about the rig alone. Don't touch the PASM modes. Don't move controls around just to move them. No need to change the body color many of us like BLACK. No need to delete any functions. Leave all five color modes. Don't hide any jacks under the battery door. I don't care if it has IS or not. I would have a remote shutter and a 2 second timer. I already have a few tripods.
