It all depends on what you want from a camera, but id say that is pretty good, the Schneider lenses are amongst the best in the business, and the 5x optical zoom in such a compact casing is good.

Kodak always guarantee's very vibrant and life-like colours, and handle lighting conditions very well. You can got far wrong with a Kodak, especially one paired with a Schneider lens.

I wouldnt advise shooting at 12mp on a compact, the sensor will be far too small im afraid, that is just a marketing gimmick, its a pity it doesnt seem to list the ISO settings available, it says it has high ISO, anything around 800 - 1600 for a compact is excellent.

BTW, I had a similar (2005 model) 4.1mp Kodak, with a Schneider 4x Optical zoom lens, and couldnt really fault it for a compact. It did everything pretty well, including nightime shooting, although the ISO was abit touch and go as it only went upto 400.

Overall though, I was very happy with it, the colour re-production was stunning when compared to some of its rivals.

Thats pretty good, but the Carl Ziess compact lenses arnt usually upto the quality of the Schneider lenses in my opinion. I like the high ISO of 1000, that would give the camera a lot of flexibility, but on occasions when you need the old optical zoom, the Kodak would obviously win due to it having more at its disposal.

The video mode on the Sony sounds impressive, it appears to be 640x480x30 from the spec list, but I couldnt confirm that.

All in all, it should be a good camera, as with any CyberShot, but it depends on the type of photography you want to go for. Personally, I enjoy a lot of landscape/scenic photography, so I would go for the Kodak not only for the zoom lens, but also based on colour re-production based on past experience with both makes of camera's.

However, I could be considered to be out of touch with modern compact camera's, so Sony may be better then they used to be and possibly even better then Kodak??
