Kodak DCS560


I bought one of these in late 2009, mainly out of curiousity. I've owned and reviewed most of Kodak's earlier DCS models - you can see my opinions on this very site, under the entries for the DCS 420, DCS 460, and DCS 520 - and I wanted to see how the...

With each firmware update the image quality gets better and better. An excellent camera body... thanks Canon.
