Kodak Easyshare DX6490 Review

Review Date: Feb 20, 2004


Kodak Easyshare DX6490 Zoom

Category: Beginner to Serious Amateur

The Kodak Easyshare DX6490 Zoom is a full featured ultra zoom digital camera. It features 4.0 megapixels resolution and a 10x optical zoom. The lens is a Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon and has focal lengths equivalent to a 38 - 380mm 35mm camera lens. Macro is at 12 cm (4.7 in.), shutter speed ranges from 16-1,1700 sec., and maximum aperture is F2.8.

The DX6490 looks elegant in its black body, provides flexible exposure control, and has a large 2.2 in. LCD. Those who wear glasses will welcome the diopter control on the electronic viewfinder.

The DX6490 is compatible with KODAK EASYSHARE System. Images tagged in the camera can be immediately printed or emailed when you dock it in the optional Printer Dock 6000.

The Kodak Easyshare DX6490 will appeal to beginner and serious amateur photographers who desire an ultra zoom point-and-shoot with flexible exposure control.
