Reviews: Digital Camera Review reviewed Kodak Easyshare P712 and wrote:
"Overall, the image quality was good. There were a couple things that I noticed, however. The images from the P712 showed a fair amount of chromatic aberration and got noisy quickly as you increased the sensitivity. While images were sharp from edge to edge, vignetting was noticeable throughout the zoom range. I was impressed that the optical zoom could be used during movie capture, but I feared that the louder zoom motor would be audible on the sound track, and it was. Battery life was also not as good as I would like to see in a camera with this feature set."

Steve's digicam reviewed Kodak Easyshare P712 and wrote:
"I was pleased with the P712's ergonomics, the SLR-style body offers a comfortable feel in your hands, and surprisingly it's also very light, weighing just under one pound (14.2 oz without the battery.) The various controls across the body are well placed and functional, and the onscreen menu system is logically organized, allowing for quick changes to camera settings. We especially like the handy command dial and set button. They allow you to change the values for ISO, exposure compensation, flash compensation, aperture and shutter speed, etc. depending on what exposure mode is being used. Both the 2.5-inch LCD and EVF (Electronic ViewFinder) are high-quality displays that work great indoors and out. The LCD was usable outside, even with the harsh sun beating directly onto it, and the eyepiece of the EVF is deep enough to block out any ambient light. When shooting in marginal lighting, both displays "gain up" to help you frame your subject; something that was not possible with 35mm film cameras."

CNET reviewed Kodak Easyshare P712 and wrote:
"Unfortunately, like most Kodak cameras, the EasyShare P712 produces noisy images. Even at ISO 64, some off-color speckles were visible in our test images. While this noise increased at both ISO 80 and ISO 100, it was still well under control, yielding acceptable images. By ISO 200, noise was obviously noticeable with larger splotches in darker colors, especially blues. Though the noise softened some finer details, the images still produced decent prints. At ISO 400, the noise was rampant, making all but 4x6 prints unusable. Given that this camera is geared toward more advanced users, who are more apt to shoot in darker conditions, it's disappointing to find this much noise, though we did appreciate the versatility of the 1/3-stop ISO increments."

Imaging resource reviewed Kodak Easyshare P712 and wrote:
"If you don't want to make the jump to a digital SLR yet -- for whatever reason -- the Kodak P712 offers a decent all-in-one, superzoom alternative. With a whopping 12x zoom that would cost an arm and a leg if you ever tried to purchase equivalent lenses for a DSLR, the Kodak P712 is great for capturing close-up shots that stay sharp thanks to the camera's optical image stabilizer. The P712's mix of ease of use in Auto mode with a broad range of control options also make it a good camera for sharing between two people of widely differing photograph skill levels: In Auto mode, it's push-the-button simple, yet still offers enough options and controls to satisfy more sophisticated shooters. Though its overall performance and image quality don't equal that of a decent digital DSLR, if you're looking for a less expensive, portable alternative, the Kodak P712 is definitely worth a look."

PopPhoto reviewed Kodak Easyshare P712 and wrote:
"The camera is compact for a bridge model. Its SLR-like ergonomic grip allows for one-handed shooting when you need to. The buttons and controls are laid out nicely and are all within easy reach. In addition to all the controls is the mode dial, which offers direct access to a host of customizable shooting modes including: full manual, aperture- and shutter-priority, program, and auto, as well 17 scene modes including the Sports mode (which I utilized quite a bit in my shooting). It also offers a hot-shoe, which can be used with accessory flash for shedding more light on your subject when you need it."
