Kodak EasyShare Z980

(April 2009)

A great value digital bridge camera from Kodak, the EasyShare Z980 has a megazoom range, with HD video.

What’s good:

  • Mega zoom range, from good 26mm wide to massive 676mm telephoto
  • Pretty good flash range

What’s disappointing:

  • Extremely slow red-eye reduction pre-flash
