Kodak EasyShare Z915 Conclusions

September 23, 2009 by David Rasnake Reads (6,421)

Let’s be honest: regardless of how it performs, the Z915 will attract plenty of buyers. It’s a visually appealing camera with an attractive price that many discount retailers carry in their on-shelf inventories, which – performance and image quality considerations aside – will easily be enough to seal the deal on a fair number of purchases.

But ubiquity and good looks do not a superior camera make, and in the case of the Z915, there are so many choices out there anymore in the compact ultrazoom space that Kodak’s offering doesn’t really do a lot to stand out from the pack. There’s no doubt that, in most respects and for most purposes, the Z915 is a perfectly capable camera. But considering some of the truly excellent ones against which it directly competes, the EasyShare also doesn’t prove itself to be a best buy – even factoring in its attractively low price – in this increasingly crowded field.


  • Improved visual appeal

  • Better-than-expected noise control
  • Affordable


  • AF is slow, unreliable
  • Lens performance fails to impress
  • Small, glare-prone LCD
  • Alkaline AAs won’t cut it for reliable power
