Kodak Camera Delivers 14 Megapixels

Kodak DCS Pro 14n

 

Kodak announcedthe DCS-14n at Photokinain September 2002, it marked the first Kodak Professional digitalSLR since the DCS 720x in June 2001 (15 months). The DCS-14n generateda lot of interest for several reasons; it has a full frame sensor (nocropping...

Amazing resolution, the highest we've seen so far (takes the crown from the EOS-1Ds) ; Ability to produce very sharp lower resolution images (puts any six megapixel to shame) ; Full frame 35 mm size sensor, offers excellent wide angle shooting ; Good...

High ISO noise levels (especially at slower shutter speeds) ; Intrusive noise reduction (can not be disabled) ; Moiré visible in images with fine detail ; Slow startup time (4.5 seconds is too long for a D-SLR) ; Slow continuous shooting ; Much slower...

The DCS-14n certainly created a stir at Photokina last year, since then it's been a case of 'forever delayed' for this camera, and even now while I review it I still get the feeling that Kodak haven't really finished developing it. Stepping away from...

Kodak DCS Pro 14n Digital SLR Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

Kodak of course needs no introduction in the field of photography, their name being almost synonymous with photography for much of this century. They were one of the first digital camera makers in the US, and for a long while were the only game in town...

Owners Opinion: Kodak DCS 14n (HenkL, 17 Aug 07)

 

If you're interested in shooting perfect pictures with enough light.. there is nothing on the market for this price (does roundabout 1200 dollars on ebay) which delivers this quality pictures even now in 2007. However it needs processing to get a...

The problems already mentioned by others: high iso performance is terrible especially in the blue channel. Low light performance is a no go with this cam ; It is slow when you shoot in JPG.. but if you are a professional, you will not really use it anyway

Owners Opinion: Kodak DCS 14n (Brian E. Payne, 25 Jul 05)

 

I have been using the Kodak 14n since June of 2003. This camera is great for outdoor use when using the ISO of 80 up to ISO 160. Any ISO above ISO 400 grain city and even photoshop can't help you out.

A lot of grain above the ISO of 400. If used indoors and in poor lighting as doing weddings. Be careful and test your shoots before the wedding. If possible ask someone at the church to turn all the lights on full power you will need it

Product Specifications

Kodak Professional, which brought you the first professional digital camera more than a decade ago, is proud to bring you the DCS Pro 14n, a standard F-mount SLR digital camera with a 35 mm-size, 13.89 million-pixel complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensor. Equal in size to 35 mm film, the sensor's focal length magnification is 1: 1. You get the same true wide-angle image as you would with film, with no lens magnification factor. It's the ideal camera for high-resolution group shots, allowing you to see the finest detail. The DCS Pro 14n is also the industry's first SLR digital camera that can shoot variable-resolution RAW files at 3, 6, or 14 megapixels. You'll have the dynamic range and versatility of working with RAW files at the resolution you choose. With the DCS Pro 14n camera, you won't lose a shot. Picture protection will see to that. And, Kodak proprietary Extended Range Imaging Technology will provide two stops of exposure latitude in a JPEG workflow. Designed for professional portrait, selected wedding, and commercial photographers, the DCS Pro 14n camera is one of the most technologically advanced cameras on the market, and thanks to free firmware and software upgrades, it will stay that way, too.
