The Kodak EasyShare Z812 IS Zoom digital camera is closely related to the existing Z712 IS model, and couples eight megapixel resolution with an optically stabilized 12x zoom lens, 2.5" LCD display, and electronic viewfinder.

Other Z812 features include high ISO sensitivity to a maximum of 3200 equivalent, plus face detection, smart scene mode, aperture / shutter priority and full manual shooting, and a high-res video mode with 30 frames per second shooting.

As compared to the original Z712, the Kodak Z812 IS has slightly higher resolution, a slightly extended low sensitivity limit of ISO 64 instead of ISO 80, now allows ISO 3200 to be used at up to 2.2 megapixel resolution instead of 1.2 megapixel, and has one extra resolution setting each for videos and still images. The new video resolution is listed in the specs as 1024 x 720 pixels, and at 30fps this is an impressively high resolution for a still camera - and unlike the previous model, the Kodak Z812IS has a stereo microphone as well. Finally, the Kodak EasyShare Z812IS is just five or six millimeters deeper and wider than its predecessor.

The Kodak EasyShare Z812 IS ships from August 2007 priced at about US$300.
