Kodak PIXPRO AZ421 Review

The Kodak PIXPRO AZ421 Digital Camera from Kodak is a versatile point-and-shoot giving both still photography and video recording capabilities. The extensive zoom range distinguishes it that it possesses.

Using a 16.15MP 1/2.3 “CCD sensor, it can record high-resolution stills and HD 720p video with a sensitivity range of ISO 80-1600, which can be stretched to ISO 3200 to make 4MP stills. Additionally, it has a sensitivity range of ISO 80-3200, which allows it to create 4MP stills.

A wide-angle to super-telephoto 42x optical zoom lens helps balance out the camera’s photography capabilities. This lens has a focal length range comparable to 24-1008mm and employs visual image stabilization to provide crisper photos even when shooting handheld.
