Problem is no one has confidence in the Kodak name anymore.

What i want to know is how faithful are the colours to the Kodaks digital cameras of old. Has anyone done a proper comparison out there?
I do wish them well, it always nice to have more choice and see Kodak cameras again.

.....I’m surprised this camera wasn’t credited for now having the highest max. focal length of any camera to date…..

When I opened the product specs for this camera I could not find any detailed information. Maybe it will be delivered soon?

Good to see the brand again. In point and shoot range the images from kodak was far better than the brand name cameras like nikon canon and sony. On a side by side comparison canon ixus images dull will a similar range m series camera from kodak

I agree, Manoj! I have a Kodak M1092 P&S that takes pictures that rival my old Nikon D80!

In my opinion, many of these recent superzooms are virtually useless in bright light and long focal lengths due to to one simple omission - an Electronic Viewfinder!!

I agree with previous comments by salheneger about the instructions.  Used Quick Start Guide, but later had a small problem.  Found instruction manual online (printed all pages) and reviewed for idea on how to resolve problem.  Does anyone know how to open the battery compartment when the listed method will not work ?  Is there a pin hole where I could use a paperclip to release the latch ?  Can’t reset the clock, remove memory card or batteries.  Thanks for any ideas.

@ Rob Mac.

Totally agree and even though the AZ521 is now £149,99 at Argus, no EVF = no sale but for those who can live without one, I think this camera will be a super bargain as it seems to perform well.

Waiting for the review of the forthcoming AZ651 which DOES have an EVF and if it will perform anything like the AZ521, then I’m in!
