What is the difference between the Kodak PIXPRO AZ527 and the Kodak PIXPRO AZ528?

The Kodak PIXPRO AZ527 is a 16.1 MP camera with a 28mm wide angle lens. The Kodak PIXPRO AZ528 is a 16.1 MP camera with a 21mm wide angle lens.

How fast is this camera. (This is my biggest complaint about the small digitals – they are SO slow!)

It depends on what setting you have your shots on. Mines on face beautify and portrait and its slower at taking shots because of that but regular settings is faster.

will this camera record good video?

Video quality is excellent.

Want simplicity, but an upgrade to my 10yr old 8mp kodak. sharp lcd image? close-ups?.. 12″or even closer? print quality?

 The KODAK PIXPRO AZ421 Astro Zoom Camera is a great, simple upgrade for your Kodak. The 3” LCD produces a crisp image, with 460k pixels. For close-ups, the AZ421’s macro feature works from as close as 1.6cm away from your subject. 16MP is ample for very detailed photos and enlargements. Trusty “Auto” mode, along with 12 different scene modes are easy options if you prefer shooting without having to manually adjust a lot of the settings.

Can you twist the lens to focus?

This is basically a big point-and-shoot camera with a HUGE telephoto lens, wide angle and a boatload of adjustments (shutter/aperature priority or program AE list an SLR). It has multiple focus options, but no purely manual “twist the lens” variety.

Is this camera real heavy

The KODAK PIXPRO AZ421 is a “bridge” camera which means it bridges the gap between a compact point and shoot model and a much larger DSLR type camera. The AZ421 weighs approximately 15.6 oz., so under 1lb, not very heavy at all for a powerful 42X zoom lens and camera.

Does this camera work with a Bluetooth remote?

The KODAK PIXPRO AZ421 does not have built-in Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Our AZ652 or AZ901 models have both and can use the FREE PIXPRO Remote Viewer app to control and/or upload photos from these two models to your phone or smart tablet.

what specific mode and settings do i need to use to take very close-up shots? i need to be able to see fine detail. everything ive tried is blurry?

The KODAK PIXPRO AZ421 has a “Macro” setting which is the preferred setting for super close up, detailed photos. To find the “Macro” setting, just look at the circular dial on the top right of the camera body (right next to the shutter button). It will be the “tulip” icon.

Is this a point and shoot camera?

Yes it is. Just a big one with a few more features. Don’t buy bridge cameras unless you really need that telephoto (zoom) lens.

How long will it take for my order to be confirmed and money taken off the card? I put the order in about 9-10 a.m. this morning and it’s now 6 p.m?

Check your amazon “Orders” tab. You can see the status of your order there.

does it record?

The KODAK PIXPRO AZ421 Astro Zoom Camera records 720p HD video easily with the touch of a button.

is this camera good for portrait pictures?

The KODAK PIXPRO AZ421 offers lots of scene and modes to take great portrait photos. In addition to dedicated “Portrait”, “Night Portrait”, there is also “Face Beautifier” mode, which smooths and softens skin tones as well as “Backlit Portrait”.
