Kodak DCS 760 SLR

The DCS 760 was first announced at CeBIT 2001 on 22nd March. It is, as were the DCS 620, 660 and 620x based on a modified Nikon F5 body. The 760 features a 6 megapixel CCD sensor (primary colour filter array - GRGB) with a usable sensitivity equivalent...

Superb, balanced horizontal and vertical resolution ; Excellent colour, though selectable sRGB and Adobe RGB would be nice ; Improved LCD, improved user interface (magnify etc.) ; Excellent build quality, all metal body ; The way it feels in your hand,...

Large and heavy ; No in-camera JPEG / TIFF ; Limited selection of white balance modes, no fine tunable white balance ; Maximum flash sync shutter speed of 1/300 sec (compared to D1x) ; Limited burst frame rate (1.6fps) but does have a good size buffer...

Kodak have learned their lesson (the hard way), this time well aware of the threat from the D1x and have come up with a camera (clearly based on the 660) which is more than capable of taking it on.

Kodak DCS 760 Professional Digital Camera

 

For serious photographers the holy grail of digital SLR cameras will be the one that produces images as good as those obtained in a high-end camera using 35mm film.

For the last decade Kodak has been at the forefront in the development of high-end digital cameras based on 35mm format SLR cameras. The company started with the DCS 100 in 1991, which was based on a Nikon F3 but was tethered to a big external pack...

Owners Opinion: Kodak DCS760 (Jean Ulrich Burer, 7 Feb 08)

 

I bought this fine camera in 2006 for around 800 euros and used it for some great modelshoots in Indonesia. The DCS 760 has a very clean analogue style look when used with proper raw readers such as the ones from Adobe.Compared with Nikon's D70 and...

the weight is a challenge during long outdoor modelsessions, and new batteries are expensive when you manage to find them(ebay).Though the used F5 body is resistant against moisture, Kodak didn't follow this with the digital back...

Owners Opinion: Kodak DCS760 (Chris Ross Leong, 30 Oct 07)

 

Well, after many years of shooting film, I finally came across a job that just HAD to be shot in digital. So I looked around to find what cameras could use my fast Nikon MF AIS lenses and found this one for a very good price. So the main objection...

One major problem was that the batteries, if discharged down beyond a certain level, cannot be recharged by the standard battery charger ; That's because the voltage sensor in said Kodak charger only reads down to around 3v, and if the battery sinks...

Owners Opinion: Kodak DCS760 (Georg N.Nyman PhD., 17 Feb 03)

 

I was using this camera for about 6 weeks and shot about 800 photos with it - from very-wide angle to ultra-telephoto ( in Grand Teton and Yellowstone ). The results are very impressive, the handling OK and the camera overall is very very good

There is only one problem which I had - I had to return this camera after 6 weeks - but I would have wanted to keep it
