My Dad, 91years old, received a Kodak Easyshare model z1285 from a friend for christmas. no manual. He lives 400 miles away and called to ask if I knew where the SD card goes. Since I can't see the camera I thought I would ask the experts. He thinks it goes on the end but the door won't open. Is there a trick to the door? Is there only a door on one end? Just to make sure I can explain it to him, please explain it to me as simply as possible since I have never seen the camera. Thanks.


The door to access the SD card slot is on end of the camera which is closest to the round knob on the top of the camera. If you turn the camera on end and look at the door, it has small groove in it that is about an inch long. Holding y ... Kodak EasyShare Z12851 Digital Camera
