Ever since I became a mom taking photos of my kids and of pretty much anything else has become really fun. I especially love taking photos of people and getting that priceless expression on their face. I received a Kodak PIXPRO AZ421 for review and absolutely loved how beautiful the pictures came out and how easy it was to use it!Take Gorgeous Photos with the Kodak PIXPRO AZ421 Camera
The Kodak PIXPRO AZ421 is really easy to use: simply point and click. For most of the photos that I took in this post, I simply used the basic setting (auto mode) and didn’t bother with flash. The camera, however, has many modes, such as videos, panoramic photo, and more. It also has a mode called SCN that allows you to choose from 12 scenes, such as a sunset setting, which I discussed below, that gives the photo a much more dramatic look.
The camera itself is pretty heavy, probably due to the big lens, so I suggest you put the strap on it right away. I also recommend downloading the user manual and saving it somewhere on your computer so you can refer to it when you want to use some of the special features.The camera comes with its own battery and charger (super easy, just hook it up to any outlet).
I went with my family to the Stamford Thanksgiving Parade, which was held several days before Thanksgiving. The Kodak PIXPRO delivered! I had such a blast taking photos of everyone participating in the parade and was amazed at how vivid the pictures came out!
Here are my favorite photos from the day, taken with the Kodak PIXPRO. Every single photo in this post is unedited. This is exactly how the photos came out. (The only change I made was that I cropped a few of the photos.)
I decided to try the Kodak PIXPRO in a late afternoon setting and took some shots at the Holiday Market at Bryant Park in NYC.
As I mentioned, the camera has a sunset feature. Here’s a photo without the sunset feature turned on:

I was not compensated for this post. I received a sample.
