Head-2-Head Review: Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD vs. Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS
FlashBy Emily Raymond
The flash components on the two cameras are quite different. The Fuji S2000 has a button on its left side that pops it up; it must be manually opened. The Kodak Z1015 pops up when needed or when the forced on flash mode is selected. Fujifilm’s flash is more powerful; it reaches about 21 feet. The Kodak is effective to about 16 feet at its best (wide angle).
The Kodak’s flash is more blatant, while the Fuji has a more subtle and flattering light. Both models have red-eye reduction modes, but the Kodak Z1015 adds a digital red-eye reduction mode that digitally corrects any red eyes that pop up in pictures. Still, between the two flashes, Fujifilm’s takes the cake because of its powerful, taller, and more flattering flash.
