Head-2-Head Review: Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD vs. Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS
image Quality ComparisonBy Emily Raymond
Both cameras have a 10-megapixel image sensor, but they must be implemented differently because the Kodak Z1015 was the clear winner with its more detailed images. Both cameras employed in-camera sharpening systems – with Kodak applying the most – but there is still room to do more in a software program if desired.
The Kodak also bested the Fuji in terms of limiting noise throughout most of the ISO range. Kodak had less total noise at every ISO setting except for ISO 800, where the S2000 images were cleaner.
The Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS has better dynamic range in the lower end of the ISO range up to 400, but the Fuji S2000 performs better at the ISO 800 and 1600 settings.
Although the colors on the LCD screen look terribly inaccurate, the actual image files from the Fuji S2000 proved that its colors are actually quite accurate. They were over-saturated by only 1.1 percent. The Kodak, on the other hand, had a more pronounced error in the colors and over-saturated colors by 11.9 percent.
