Kodak DX6490 Review
Click on the DX6490 Zoom for a QTVR tour
The DX6490 camera is the first to unite a professional quality Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 10X optical zoom lens (38-380 mm equivalent) with a f/2.8 - f/3.7 maximum aperture; a new Kodak Color Science image processing chip for the richest, most accurate colors; low-light precision auto focusing; and multiple shooting modes for optimal creative control - all with effortless operation that people have come to expect from Kodak. The aperture priority, shutter priority and manual modes lend a significant degree of advanced functionality for the more accomplished photographer, and its pre-programmed sport, night, portrait, landscape, close-up and automatic modes -- plus a new automatic fill flash for backlit scenes -- provide point-and-shoot simplicity.
A press of the DX6490 camera's red-jeweled "Share" button allows a person to immediately select printing, e-mailing, and mark as favorite options for each picture, and on-camera sharing is made simple with a 2.2-inch, high-resolution LCD screen. In addition, the camera's new album feature, when used in conjunction with Kodak EasyShare software v3.0, allows categorization of pictures right on the camera.
The DX6490 will be available worldwide beginning in September 2003 with a US$499 suggested retail price and establishes a new price-to-performance benchmark for 'advanced amateur' photography.
