Don't rush out right yet for the next-gen Z650 because this compact zoomer isn't likely to hit retail shelves until
next month for $349 list. Kodak's Z650 tacks on some features usually found in higher end cameras, such as an exposure
histogram and burst modes; while the bursting sounds painful, it comes in handy at the beginning (or the end) of image
grouping when you've got several frames to capture. Don't think the Z650 is just for the advanced crowd, it still keeps
plenty of the easy-to-use features that the EasyShare series
is named for. Obviously the sharing is still easy and the "oldies but goodies" like red-eye reduction and 17
picture modes keep it simple but effective.
