Are you here to see my Kodak EasyShare Max z990 Review?
CLICK HERE — (not sure why so many people are landing on
this “release date” page instead)

I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Kodak EasyShare Max z990 for weeks now. It was so close that I could almost feel the new camera in my hand 🙂

But now, Kodak has changed the release date of their new amazing camera from March 9, 2011 to April 5, 2011 to April 9, 2011. … I guess that gives me more time to work on other technical skills before I explore my new obsession. But I have to admit, I am pretty disappointed. I wonder why they changed the release date.

Feel free to share your assumptions below. I am guessing they found a small flaw in the firmware and are working that bug out so that they can deliver the camera in tip-top condition 🙂 I hope this camera will be my best yet!

Update …

I see from search engine traffic that I am not the only one curious about why Kodak has delayed shipment of the EasyShare Max Z990. So, I contacted them to see what I could find out. Here are some quotes from Mark (the Kodak rep I spoke with):

Hi, Michelle. We apologize for the inconvenience but due to unforeseen delivery issues, our warehouse still has not received the shipment of cameras. We are working on trying to resolve the delay and make the cameras available as soon as possible.

We also do not have information if retailers will have it earlier since we still haven’t received the stocks for the camera. Our warehouse will ship it if the stocks are recieved earlier.

The Kodak website still says April 5 for Expected Availability. If April 5 gets here and the stores have this camera before Kodak ships it out, I think I will be changing where I get it from.

Update – April 10, 2011

It’s getting closer! Kodak last said they would ship my camera on April 8, and they did! Although, I did expect them to send it out a bit earlier in the day. …

Anyhow, check this out! My camera is getting so close. It’s only a couple of hours away from my home! If only UPS would let me go pick it up in person.

    Hey Mate,

    Looks like an awesome camera something which comes so close to an FujiFilm HS10.

    Now the expected availability even on Kodak site has changed to April 8 ! This is making me very nervous whether to order this one.

      I hope to get my hands on a FujiFilm HS10 also. – Just for a couple of days so that I can compare the two side by side. I hear fuji’s color is excellent!

      I couple of weeks from now there should be plenty of thorough reviews from people who have used this camera. … Hopefully we will all have good things to say so that you can buy without worry 🙂

    Hi, Michelle! Just got off the phone with Kodak and they PROMISE me the Z990 is shipping today. I haven’t got the confirmation email yet, so we’ll see! 🙂
