  • Excerpt: I can tell a personal story about the Kodak EasyShare DX7440. A few months ago I was looking for a camera for my mom. Since she's somewhat of a technophobe, I wanted something simple. And since your close-up vision starts to go south with age, I wanted something with a big LCD. I also wanted something that about the same size as her old film camera. I brought her to Best Buy and we looked at a bunch of cameras... from Olympus, Canon, Sony, and Kodak.
  • Pros: Good photo quality at smaller print sizes or downsized on-screen, 4X zoom lens instead of the usual 3X, Amazingly quick autofocus, even in low light, Large LCD is usable in bright outdoor light or in low light indoors, Many manual controls, Supports conversion lenses, EasyShare system makes it very easy to share and print photos, Plenty of scene modes, Good redeye test performance, Can save favorite settings to a spot on mode dial, Well built for a $300 camera (in oth...
  • Cons: Details in photos can look muddy, over-processed; some trouble with exposure as well, No manual white balance or manual focus, VGA movie mode, while nice, has a sluggish frame rate, Can't get to memory card slot while camera is on tripod, LCD "blacks out" in burst mode, Kodak should've put the high capacity battery in the box

  • Summary: The Kodak EasyShare DX7440 provides a 4.0 (effective) megapixel imager combined with a Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 4x optical zoom lens. The DX7440 features an extensive low-light auto-focus system that combines rapid phase detection with highly accurate (TTL) contrast detection to sharply define a subject, even in almost complete darkness. Selectable focus zones and exposure metering allow users advanced control over each scene.

  • Summary: A huge display, beginner-friendly controls and consistently superb results make this a top choice for families. It’s a great all-rounder that performs admirably in all situations, although in our test the results at night were less impressive. It also offers an impressive array of features considering its modest price.

  • Summary: £129 (UK) / $272 (US) from Amazon this camera offers excellent value for money. If you want a very easy to use, fast, capable 4 megapixel digital camera with a large 2.2" screen, and a 4x optical zoom lens, that produces good images, and records unlimited videos with sound, all for a bargain price, then the Kodak Easyshare DX7440 is Recommended!
  • Cons: Shame it doesn't use AA batteries, as the size of the camera should allow it., Higher than average purple fringing., No Manual White Balance, Images can be a bit soft

  • Excerpt: Quando eravamo studenti e riuscivamo a prendere un otto in un compito in classe, i voti seguenti dovevano essere, per lo meno, della stessa portata. Si diceva che, se non si ripeteva il successo, era semplicemente perché non si prestava l'impegno sufficiente. La Kodak sembra applicare questa massima. Ha dimostrato di poter creare fotocamere meravigliose con le EasyShare DX6490 e DX7590, e pretende di fare lo stesso con la DX7440.
  • Pros: display eccellente da 2,2 pollici, buona risposta dello zoom da 4x, basso livello di rumore in tute le sensibilità....
  • Cons: ergonomia migliorabile, autofocus un po' lento, qualità deplorevole dello zoom digitale, cattivo bilanciamento del bianco.
