wide is 7.6m and in telephoto is 4.4m.
Controls on the back: Upper right corner are the zoom controls, which also act as the index and magnify
options in review mode. The Monitor/"i" button controls the amount of information
that is overlayed on the LCD image. Under that is the Play button. The 4-way controller lets you navigate the onscreen menus, pressing the
OK button in the center will accept changes. The "Up", "Down", "Left" and "Right" buttons are used to change
between the values for ISO, Focus, Exposure compensation, etc.
At the bottom you can see the Menu button (calls up and dismisses the menus), Review button, and the
Share button (lets you select images for printing, e-mailing, or to mark as a favorite)
and the Delete button.
On top you'll find various controls. Top right is the shutter release followed by three buttons that control the Flash, Focus modes and the Drive modes. To the left of these buttons you will find the power switch and the mode dial.
The Mode Dial has positions for: Auto, Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual, Movie, Digital Panorama, Scene, High ISO and Sport.
I/O ports are located on the right side. The USB 2.0 port works with the Kodak EasyShare Software to make image downloading fast and easy even without the use of an optional EasyShare Camera or Printer Dock. The USB cable can also be plugged into any Pictbridge compatible photo printer for direct, computer-less printing. This port also facilitates the A-V output cable with selectable NTSC or PAL format and audio for connection to a TV set (cable not included).
There's also the DC IN jack for an optional AC power adapter. Not shown is the docking
connector on the bottom of the camera.
The Z1012 IS Zoom comes with 32MB of internal memory and is equipped with a SD/SDHC/MMC
card slot that accepts any capacity SD/SDHC flash card.
Power is supplied by either the included CRV3 battery pack or two AA sized lithium batteries.
