Kodak DCS 620x SLR


The Kodak Professional DCS 620x which began shipping in June 2000 is an updated version of the popular Kodak DCS 620.

As with all digital cameras there are some negatives. The most notable is the size and weight which will make you appreciate that wide and well-padded neck strap. I noticed a tendancy to oversaturate colors, but is easily correctable in software after the

Say hello to Kodak's latest Professional Digital Camera, the DCS 620x. You'd be forgiven for doing a double take as this is (purely from a body, photographic and controls point of view) identical to the DCS 620 (which I reviewed last year).

Class leading sensitivity and low image noise ; Huge dynamic range ; Good colour response even at very high ISO's ; Excellent TWAIN module ; Relatively small "digital negatives" in the form of 12-bit RAW TIFF files ; Very fast operation, high burst...

Noise reduction algorithm requires tuning ; Over saturation of yellows & greens, slight orange tint to reds ; Preference to a rolling thumbwheel (as found on the 520) to the 4-way cursor ; Size & Weight ; Price

The DCS620x hits the spot Kodak were aiming for. They listened to their users and produced the goods, now the most sensitive Professional digital camera on the market it will almost definitely be seen around the edges of sports arenas and stadiums...

The Kodak DCS 620 would forever ruin me from ever owning or using another consumer-priced digital camera if it wasn't for two things. They are (1) Price, ~$10-11K - ouch! and (2) Size - this thing is huge and heavy, it's not going in your pocket or fit in

The Kodak Professional DCS 620 (referred to as the DCS620 from now onwards) is the latest generation of Kodak Professional digital cameras. Much anticipated it is a collaboration between Nikon who bring the wonderful F5 body and Kodak's digital back.

Kodak do it again, the new Professional Digital Camera standard ; Ultimate image quality, high resolution, colour and gray balance ; Improved blue channel response ; Very fast and responsive in use ; Ergonimical design and controls layout ; The...

Shame we lost the 520's thumbwheel ; For anyone not used to it all the locks can be awkward ; Could do with being about 0.5Kg lighter ; Could do with being about 150mm shorter ; Could do with being about $5,000 cheaper ;-)

Owners Opinion: Kodak DCS620x (dan win, 11 Jul 01)


Use for on the job shoots with a 200mm zoom and wide angle lenses and the picture quality is very nice. Doesn't need much post processing. Job uses include arial, and burst shots.

PCMCIA eject buttons a little cheap ; don't have a good firm eject. External power connector dosen't stay on well when moving around

The Kodak DCS620 has been reviewed by just about every top digi-cam website around- so I wont go into the specifics as those details are well documented on digi-cam sites. I will however give you a condensed personal "user-Epinion"and more likely in...

Based on Nikon flagship F5 model
