    I found one priced at $429.00 and I'm thinking about buying.
    Has anyone had trouble with theirs?

    If memory serves me well and hoping I am not mistaken - I crossed this model
    off shortlist because it outputs fine or medium JPEG only

    There is no super-fine JPEG option.

    Apparently the super- bit is technical and important

    Greetings Guido,

    Sounds like a great price Guido, if I had that choice I would say yes. I
    have used the camera and found it terrific. It is an advancement on the
    previous version and I like the new features. I would, however, review the
    camera directly before you buy. Make sure it is the one for you after
    handling and experimenting. Will it do all that you want it to do.

    If you have any questions about the camera or its features let me know.
    Glad to review with you.

    Besides more resolution, what other new features does th 7590 have that the 6490
    didn't?

    Greetings Ben,

    There are several improvements, Ben, and although the DX6490 is an excellent
    camera, the DX7590 is different in some respects. The DX7590 is a little
    faster, but it uses the same focusing features though enhanced slightly.
    The newer 7590 has three focus modes. Keep in mind that it is the type of
    metering you use that will help with this feature. If you use spot
    metering, the data set (spot) is much smaller and it should focus more
    quickly as it is using less area to determine correct exposure etc. It can
    make a difference. Give it a try.

    Other differences are:

    EVF Eye sensor Removal - the evf sensor was removed due to the increased
    need for a faster sleep to wake abiluty.
    New Mode Dial features - Power button has been moved to reduce the
    likelihood of the camera being turned on by accident.
    Any mode remains on. This allows the user to set the camera to any setting
    and it will be ready in that mode during powerup in the future.
    Easier access to PASMC modes and the use of the jog dial for more features,
    i.e. ISO and Flash compensation.
    More changes to Mode buttons
    Rear Curtain Flash Synch
    Higher res EVF
    No Blackout during Burst mode
    Flash compensation +/- 1 EV in 1/2 stop increments
    Auto Focus options - continuous, single, Accessory lens

    There are more but these are just a few.

    Talk to you soon, let me know if you have any other questions.

    And you can state categorically that the 'fine' on this camera actually
    differs from the 'super-fine' on some other camera? Seems that such
    comparisons lack a bit of precision to me.
