Kodak EasyShare Z981
Released January, 2010
The Pros:Pictures are consistently clear and sharp, professional quality. Controls are organized to switch modes very quickly without looking at them (once you're used to them). Flash does a great job in low-light conditions, everything clear without color distortion.
The Cons:Battery case is difficult and awkward to close. Auto-focus makes a fair amount of noise. Scrolling through images in the camera is very slow and difficult.
