    Hi:

    I have been saving a few bucks to originally buy the Kodak 7590 but it
    is taking too long and started to look at other cameras. I have a Kodak
    DX3600 which I love and it takes great pictures, but I wanted something
    with more manual controls and perhaps low light settings.

    I mostly take pictures of "things" like rocks, water, trees, stuff like
    that. I don't really take pictures of people.

    I went to the website www.imaging-resource and read reviews and compared
    pictures hoping someone would say - this is the best camera you could
    buy. I have enough money saved now to buy the Kodak 7440 or the Canon
    A95 but I am not sure which I want - any ideas. I do like the fact that
    the Canon will take AA batteries because I can buy those in bulk and be
    fine, but I really like the quality of Kodak.

    Thanks for adding your 2 cents.

    Carol

    You might also consider the older DX6440 if you can find it. It is
    likely to be cheaper and has most of the features of the DX7440, and
    uses AA batteries. I made the switch from the DX3600 to the DX6440 and
    it has performed very well. I am still learning what all the scene
    modes do. One thing is certain, using the night mode REQUIRES a tripod,
    or nice solid rock.

    Its funny, I thought I was the only person who had this delimma. I too have
    a DX3600 which for me was fine until I wanted to crop a few pics and still
    print a very good 8x10. Now I realized I needed an upgrade, yet still didnt
    want a degree in engineering to operate the damn thing. I also suffered
    from information overload --Consumer Reports, Steves Digicams, Imaging
    Resource, etc.
    I originally bought a Fuji E550, but wound up returning it because I still
    like to look through a viewfinder like a film camera, and this one was
    useless. I also nixed the camera because of its expensive memory card.
    What I decided to do was not pay a penny more than the old DX3600 and see
    what I came up with. Here it is- A CX7530. Fully automatic 5 megapixel,
    with a few different scene modes, a 512mb card and a tripod, and still paid
    a few bucks less than my old (3 yrs) Kodak.

    Hey Neon, could you give me a little more info on this free 1GB memory
    card rebate from Kodak...was this a rebate form that came with your
    Kodak DX7590 camera, only in certain countries or what?
    Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Greetings Carol,

    I would wait a bit longer and get the DX7590. It has more of the features
    that I am going to guess that you would enjoy and use in the future. The
    camera has nice features and a great optical zoom (10X) as well as enhanced
    digital to 30x. Since you note nature scenes, I believe you would enjoy it
    greatly. Plus, this model has the option of external flash, that would
    greatly enhance your nature shots, i.e. rocks, trees, etc. You can easily
    switch between screen and EVF as well (EVF = Electronic Viewfinder). I
    suggest a full review of the camera and features. If the flash and optical
    zoom is not important to you, then you may enjoy the DX7440 as well, also an
    excellent choice.

    If you have any particular questions regarding either of these, Carol, let
    me know, I am here for you.
