Please excuse the quality of our screen images, Kodak does not include an A/V cable with the camera.

Smart Auto mode allows anyone, no matter how much photography experience they have, to pick up this camera and start shooting. The camera will take care of all of  its settings, only allowing the user to turn the flash on and off.

For shooting in tough situations or if you are looking for a more specific shooting style, Kodak has provided several "scene" modes designed for just that. These modes include: Portrait, Sport and  Panorama on the dial and Children, Backlight, High ISO, Beach, Snow, Sunset, Self-Portrait, Night Portrait, Candle Light, Night Landscape, Landscape, Manner/Museum, Stage, Fireworks, Flower and Text under the "SCeNe" mode.

Program mode is another automatic shooting mode, but it also gives you the ability to change a few of the shooting settings to your liking. Here you can change the exposure compensation, flash compensation and ISO settings. 





kodak_z981_rec_shutter.JPG
Shutter priority mode is just like program mode except that you also have control over the shutter speed. The camera will then adjust the aperture in order to provide you with a correct exposure. 





kodak_z981_rec_aperture.JPG
Aperture mode is just the opposite, allowing the user to set the camera's aperture. The camera will then adjust the shutter speed to create a proper exposure. 





kodak_z981_rec_manual.JPG
Manual mode gives the user complete control over all of its settings. This is perfect for more experienced photographers who are looking to get creative with their settings. 





kodak_z981_rec_info.JPG
This screen shows the white balance setting in the shooting menu after pressing the information button. The camera will show a full description of any of the camera settings by selecting it then pressing the info button.
