Full Frame 36mm (FX) Sensor DSLR at a Very reasonable Price!
24 June 2012
Summary: Finally, full frame wide angle photos. No crop factor. The main reason for buying this Camera was the FX 35 mm full size sensor. This Camera's CMOS sensor is quite a bit higher contrast than I get with my Nikon D1X. As far as I can see, the camera can not be down loaded with a custom contrast Curve either. The only thing I don't Love about the Kodak DCS Pro 14n.
Summary: I purchased the Kodak Pro SLR/N a good number of years ago. It is the successor to the featured Kodak DCS-14N. Since then, I have purchased five different Nikons to replace the work performed by the camera in my studio. Most notably, I recently purchased a Nikon D800 and a Nikon D800E. And yet, I keep a spot open for using the Kodak with a Zeiss 25mm for super sharp wide-angle, high resolution macro shots.
A great camera that makes me have to think about taking a photograph

Summary: I spent 20-25 years as a professional FILM photographer. I am now retired. I purchased this Kodak DCS Pro 14n as a way to learn digital photography, but in a very film sort of way. I found out fom a friend that I could use nearly all of my older Nikon equipment, and I have found this to be correct. Even my older Nikon flashes have worked well, especially in TTL.
The camera was OK for this price point but for a couple of problems.

Summary: The camera is as described in the e.bay page. A couple of problems have come to light. The mains power module was supplied but without the connecting DC lead.Also the software on the camera was damaged at some point as the Zoom facility in playback in not available. I have tried Kodak support with no success. Overall though I am pleased with with my purchase.
Summary: The good is: The capture is quite flawless at 160asa and works amazingly well in studio settings. Skin tones look fantastic and the CC is absolutely there. Cropping and enlargements are ZERO PROBLEM because of the rather massive file it shoots and creates in RAW mode. The lens calibration is a very useful tool (though wants to override a Polarizing Filter placed over the lens) and the Studio Flash WB/CC is spot on.
Summary: We owned the DCS-760 in our pro photo lab. The camera was great. Then, kodak came out with the DCS-14n as a replacement. It was a huge mistake. The DCS-14n's sensor is simply of lower quality, shadows sometimes come out magenta. There is also a flare issue. Grey gradients, depending on the density come out green or yellow. And there are other issues as well, but you get the point. In conclusion, the DCS-760 was a far better camera.
Summary: How can anyone write a reveiw of this camera? No one in the WORLD has been able to use or reveiw it, let alone hold one. Kodak is 6 months behind release date on this camera and still has not shipped one. Lets reveiw it when it finally comes out.
Summary: The perfect digital camera ever made with over 13 mega pixels, this is the best and the only camera that any professional photographer should have.Very easy to use, much lighter than previous DCR-760 and much cheaper (about $... without lens).
Summary: Having owned one of these cameras for many years i can say it is unbeatable unless you want to spend £2000 or more on a camera. In the studio on on the move its picture quality is fantastic, its only failing is in low light, but then this was designed as a professional studio camera. It uses any and all nikon fit lenses.
