kodak Easyshare DX6490 Digital Camera Camera

 

The EasyShare DX6490 straddles the line between our point-and-shoot and advanced camera chart categories. On the one hand, it has Kodak's helpful onscreen text aids, which explain what the camera is doing and how to use a particular function; it works...

Kodak also provides a rechargeable battery (Fujifilm does not for the S5000). In our battery tests, the DX6490 still had power to spare after 500 shots--our self-imposed testing limit. Cameras that reach that threshold automatically earn a score of...

Kodak EasyShare DX6490 review

 

After a long crusade to find the ideal digital concept, Kodak has set his mind on the EasyShare system. This concept has grown to be the base of the digital camera system for the last few years and in my opinion a concept that gets a high score on the...

Digital Cameras - Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

Kodak's EasyShare digital cameras have consistently proved to be among the easiest to use of any I've tested, and the DX6490 is no exception. The big news here though, is that the DX6490 also manages to be a very respectable "enthusiast" camera, with a...

Kodak EasyShare DX6490

 

One other feature that really sets the DX6490 apart from most of the competition is Kodak's EasyShare system, which makes it very easy to mark photos for printing and e-mailing. The optional EasyShare printer dock 6000 ($199) lets you place the camera...

Good photo quality ; 10X optical zoom lens ; Large, high resolution LCD ; Electronic viewfinder actually useable in low light ; Many manual controls ; Flash sync port for external flash ; Hybrid AF system for low light focusing ; Very easy to use ;...

Details in photos can look muddy, overprocessed; photos tend to be soft, as well ; Some redeye, purple fringing ; Too easy to accidentally turn on camera ; No manual white balance or manual focus ; Limited image resolution/quality options

In conclusion, Kodak has done a really nice job with this one -- they have been listening to reviewers and customers alike. If you want "more lens with your camera" and want a simple way to share photos, then the DX6490 should be high on your list.

Kodak EasyShare DX6490

 

The DX6490 brings a new face to the Kodak EasyShare range. It's been restyled, bigger, bolder and more impressive that any other camera in the range. If Kodak follows this route then they'll have a very good camera range on their hands.

10x optical zoom, EasyShare button

Focus hard to control

One problem we did have when using this camera- something affecting most cameras within the UZ genre -is that when you are fully zoomed with both the digital and optical zoom (30x in this case) the camera's focus becomes very hard to control.
