With Kodak EasyShare DX6590 Digital Camera some things not clear
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Kodak Camera that I have is nice. Although sometimes I think it could take better pictures. The picures are bright but sometimes they seem to come out fuzzy. I have checed the lens and it looks clean but maybey there is something I can't see.
Summary: I've had this camera for 2 years this Christmas. Overall, for the price it is pretty descent. The biggest problem I have with it is that indoor pictures are always grayish, unless in a super bright area, with like flouresent lights! Outdoor pictures are great. To sum it up, great for beginners, and very well lit outdoor settings.

Summary: I have owned this camera for nearly 2 years now and I can honestly say that it is a good camera for general use but with a few caveats. If you are taking outdoor photographs it is a fantastic camera. The 10x optical zoom is great until you start to reach the outer fringes then you begin to see a noticeable drop off in sharpness. The digital zoom is useless in my opinion. The real issue with this camera comes when using it in low light or night situations.
Summary: Before I bought this camera "refurbished" (slightly used but in appearance like new), I did quite a bit of research, including reading all the customer reviews on the Amazon website. There are features to like about this camera. One is the large, easy-to-see LCD display. The second is the excellent layout of the controls, particularly the review and delete buttons.

Summary: I had the camera one day and returned it to the retailer from whence it came. (...) I didn't take a bunch of pictures with the camera but for the most part general use image quality was excellent - but here's the reasons I gave the camera a three our of five stars. I was very disappointed with the macro capabilities on a camera of this caliber.
Summary: I looked and looked and settled on the Kodak DX 6490. My first few days of use went fine, but then into the first week I began to have a problem with the shutter release button. After use it sounded like a connection was shorting and it did not function properly. I returned it to CC and they agreed to replace it. I had to wait a few weeks until a new shipment came in.
Summary: Put simply, the DX6490 is good value for money. To get a 10x optical zoom lens and 4 megapixels at this price point is something of a bargain. There are good and bad things about this camera, and the best way I can think of separating them is in the time-honoured 'Pros' and 'Cons' method. Pros 10x Optical Zoom is a winner. It's pretty quick and precise. Big LCD screen - very clear. Lots of features and modes for different pictures and conditions.
Summary: Good features, great zoom, images nice and sharp, and well saturated, but ... it's so damn slow. It takes an age to write the file, then all goes blank for a bit, then you can have another go. So, why not switch to continuous shooting? That's OK if you can guess where your moving target is going, because once you press that button, you've got a black screen.
