Kodak EasyShare Z730 Zoom


Mouseover image for back view

Category: Beginner to Serious Amateur

The Kodak EasyShare Z730 Zoom features 5MP resolution for large prints. The SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON lens allows you to get as close as 10 cm (3.9 in.) to your subject for detailed macro photography as well as provides 4x optical zoom. It also features a large 2.2 in. LCD monitor.

For those who want to go beyond point-and-shoot, the Kodak Z730 features full exposure flexibility, as well as easy-to-use Scene Modes that automate most of the common picture-taking situations. Movies are captured at 640x480 VGA resolution at 12fps.

For those who like to take night photography, the Kodak Z730 shutter speed goes to a long 64 sec. in Manual mode. The Kodak Z730 claims that by using dual-sensing technologies, its high-speed, low-light, auto-focus system precisely fine tunes and sharply defines subjects in both low-light and bright light situations. Continuous auto-focus provides quick 0.3 seconds click-to-capture time.

The Kodak EasyShare Z730 will appeal to beginner and serious amateur photographers who desire a full-featured and easy-to-use digital camera.
