This is the worse camera I have ever owned. I owned it for less than a year before I sold it.
I had previously owned a Kodak Z7590 and loved it. But, right after my warranty expired, the lens broke and it was going to cost more to fix than I had paid for it. So, it was off to the store to find another Kodak. The Z710 was everything I was looking for...10x optical zoom, 7.1MP, lighter than my previous camera, and easy to use. Sounds great right?
That's where they get you. The camera sounds good in theory, but the pictures are awful! Every single one of my indoor pictures turned out blurry or dark. When I tried to use the zoom the pictures turned out blurry or dark. Everybody had red eyes all the time, even with the red eye feature turned on!
I can't believe I actually owned it for a year before deciding to get rid of it! Do not buy this camera, you will regret it.
