The Kodak AZ525 supports a maximum video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's over two times the video resolution of the most common video resolutions of 1280 x 720 pixels (which is also supported by this digital camera). This Kodak camera also supports a video resolutions of 640 x 480 pixels. A video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels is equivalent to Full HD video.

Camera

Does Not Have a GPS (satellite)

The Kodak AZ525 does not have a GPS (satellite), although this is within the context that most of the other medium megapixel cameras that came out in the last year also do not have a GPS (satellite).

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with a GPS (satellite) and we think the Olympus E-M10 Mark II which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The Kodak AZ525 supports Wi-Fi, as do most of the other medium megapixel cameras that have been available for around the same time as this camera.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative digital cameras which support Wi-Fi currently available including because of its better review score, the Olympus AIR A01.

Display

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 3 inches, the Kodak AZ525 has a fairly average display diagonal compared to most of the other latest cameras.

We compared all the other 3" screen digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the Fujifilm X-T1 (£699), the Nikon Coolpix S6900, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57 (£203.97) are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Leica Leica TL (£1,299) (3.7") which is also higher rated.

Average Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 4 times zoom factor, the Kodak AZ525 has a relatively typical digital zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras that were launched in the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4x digital zoom digital cameras currently available including because of their better review scores, the Coolpix S6900, or the Coolpix B500 (£189.99) both from Nikon or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57 (£203.97).

If this Kodak camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Kodak Pixpro FZ53 (£69.56) (6x).

Has an Image Stabilizer
