Old but good/reliable piece of digicam history; but photo quality may vary
24 July 2011
Summary: I bought this product to experiment with infrared photography, since the 520/560 have easily removable filters (most all new digicams have permanent filters on the glass, requiring expensive conversion). My purchase was also influenced by wanting to own a piece of history (who could afford $15,000 when released, anyway?). The 520 is a rugged and reliable camera with a the normal array of shooting modes and functions.
Summary: The Kodak DCS 520 was actually a Canon EOS 1N that jumped from de analog to the digital era. This camera, designed to be used in journalism, presented 2 megapixel in resolution with formats TIFF and JPEG. Nevertheless, it had to be a different technology than the one presented in commercial cameras. The original cost of this marvelous camera was $ 15,000.00. It continues being an excellent companion for it does the job as any of the latest cameras.

Summary: tihis camera is one of the best deals you can come around this camera was way over 10.0000 when new i paid 150 but this is still a 10.000 dollars machine nothing has changed in it maybe just a few scratches and so on why this difference i dont knw but im happy ,a friend of mine aw this camera and told me he had ben about o change one of these cameras a few years back for an apatment in Miami as he needed this camra for a job he could not believe the price i had payed for...
Summary: The Eos 1n camera is already a treat to work with, so if it turns digital, done by Kodak, it's best of both worlds. Excellent picture quality, despite of only having a 2 megapixel CCD. Since pictures are stored uncompresed and can be processed afterwards with Kodak's excellent free software, it can still rival with many of today's prosumer DSLR's of higher pixel rates.
Conclusion: Et herlig digital-kamera for de som ikke har råd til Canon D1...
Pros: Har hatt dette kameraet i en uke nå og er utrolig fornøyd, det er raskt(3,5 fps) og rimelig stillegående. Har stor plass til minnekort, 2 type 1&2 eller 1 type 3, jeg har en type 3 med 340 mb, tar ca. 150 bilder... Flott og jobbe med, 200-1600 iso, rask autofokus..
Cons: Det eneste minuset er vel at det bruker mye batterier, det gjør vel de fleste digital-kameraene og jeg vil anbefale og ha minst 2 batterier... Litt stort og tungt.
Excerpt: questa è stata la mia prima macchina fotografica. lo comprata cara non ricordo ed erano le prime. era un 2 megapixel e ricordo che faceva le foto scadenti. ci ho fotografato la nascita di mio figlio e vi posso garantire che le foto sono venute con dei colori che se vengono guardate bene si nota che le immagini non sono allineate.
