    my friend, do the homework first before you shop will save you a lot of trouble.

    we are not so lucky to have a return policy here (Singapore).

    anyway, use Google, type "Kodak z990 review", you get answers instantly.

    hope this help.

    Since you've have it, then use it.
    if you insist of having a good cam, then google for
    Nikon D4, Canon 1DX
    Nikon D800, Canon 5D III
    They are very good cam indeed

    Last comment, good day and enjoy your life. It's your decision to make yourself familiar with whatever environment you enter (and to face whatever consequences there are if you chose to ignore advices).

    Aiyo... Moderator also not making a fuss, So why go try finding bones in an egg...

    Anyway TS since you have 90days return policy try out the cam for a day or 2, if you like it keep it if u don change it. But pls be gentle to the cam, as u might be returning it. Welcome and enjoy shooting.

    Its always good to do some homework before you make any purchase.. Its quite pointless to ask isit good or whats good or bad about it when you already purchase it.

    Everyone wants a good camera..but are you good enough..If you are..anything is just as good too.. : )

    takes a brave man to buy a kodak camera these days...

    Update on Kodak's Transformation

    my humble advice: take your time to do a little research before buying new equipment - even if u can return the camera, i think its a waste of time.

    consider your needs and your budget. if u're just looking for a good point and shoot, have a look at the canon s95/s100, panasonic lx5, fuji x10 or any other cameras that's using the slightly bigger sensor.

    if u want the flexibility to change lenses, u could consider micro four-third cameras like olympus, or those with a larger aps-c sensor like the sony nex.

    if u want a DSLR, which gives u an optical view-finder and maximum control to learn with, there's the usual canon, nikon, sony, pentax offerings.

    My advise to TS is to bring his new camera out and take some shots. The kodak Z990 from reviews seemed like a capable machine, however I am not sure about the responsiveness of the camera, for me... it is a deal breaker.

    Anyway, since TS had a 90 days return policy, so it should be safe, play with it, if TS is happy with the performance, then keep it... if not, just return the cam. 90days should be enough for TS to have a taste of what the camera can or cannot do.

    Welcome to Clubsnap Gabriel.

    I haven't used the camera but based on the link provided by intrace, the camera is definitely value for money.
