Kodak's Share Button
This provides the ability to tag and share photos across websites such as YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, and Kodak Gallery sites. Further, this can be used in conjunction with the face detection feature as follows - the face detection works on 5 faces at a time, and the camera can be programmed to automatically tag 20 specific people based on face detection. This enables quick tagging and easy upload of photographs on YouTube, Flickr, etc.
The Kodak EasyShare Z981 features a whopping 26X zoom which is 2x more than most other superzooms. The inbuilt image stabilization ensures crisp images even at longer ranges. However, a tripod is recommended to ensure shake-free images at the long zoom ranges.
Vertical Shutter Release
The vertical shutter release button is especially useful while taking photographs in a portrait orientation. Most cameras are better suited to take photographs in the landscape orientation and this uncommon but thoughtful feature makes vertical shooting a breeze with the Kodak EasyShare Z981.
In terms of image quality, the output from the Z981 is about average for a digital camera in this range. There is significant image noise at higher ISO and images produced by the Z981 are not the best in terms of color.
