Kodak PIXPRO AZ252 Review

Kodak PIXPRO AZ252 Digital Camera in white is a flexible point-and-shoot camera that records high-quality stills and video. It features a 25x optical zoom with a resolution of 16.15 megapixels. It uses a 1/2.3-inch CCD sensor with a sensitivity range of ISO 80-3200 to generate still images with a maximum resolution of 4608 by 3456 pixels and HD video with a resolution of 720p at 30 frames per second.

An optical image stabilization system is built into the camera to help keep pictures sharp while shooting handheld and produce better results in low-light situations. This is in addition to a large 4.3-107.5mm lens with a focal length equivalent to 24-600mm on a 35mm camera and can produce wide landscape shots and capture faraway subjects without losing resolution to digital zoom processes.

The built-in flash is located at the camera’s top and features modes allowing red-eye mitigation and slow sync. The camera’s rear features a 3-inch 230k-dot LCD that lets you examine photographs while shooting them and scroll through them after capture.
