kodak dig camera general question

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Doug Chadduck, Mar 12, 2006.

  1. My wife is looking at the Kodak c643. Not the way I would go but this
    will be hers. I haven't studied Kodaks at all. Any general thoughts?
    Good Bad or indifferent? I can make my way thru specs and features and
    pretty much know what is what. Just don't have any experience knowledge
    of Kodak in this range and there is a lot the spec sheets just don't
    say. Ease of use? Does the S/W work easily with XP or Win98 or OSX?
    Good finger feel for scanning pics on the camera? Just curious what the
    hands on thoughts might be. Thanks much.

    I'm an old SLR film guy for 35 years and just not ready to spec and buy
    my digital. The day will come. Me and Photoshop have had some great
    learning experiences so far the last couple years, so digital is far
    from foreign.

    For mine I would be looking firstly at the results a camera might produce.

    In the digital world so many cameras but only a few shine when it comes to
    the image itself.

    There were a few "early" digital Kodaks where I hated the results. Over
    emphasis of colour in particular.

    A friend bought a Kodak CX7530 about 6 months ago and I find the results
    quite acceptable.

    I know this doesn't answer your question but I thought I'd just mention it
    because it was the first thing I did when looking at cameras.

    Try this site for clues as to what certain cameras are liked/disliked.

  3. Appreciate the energy. If this were for me we would be talking very
    differently. But it is for my wife who is very much point and shoot and
    not much beyond. She likes the feel, as in holding in your hand, the
    Kodak, versus some of the others. espially the Canon I would have picked.
    It seems to have all the basics and seems like it would be easy to
    learn, as in teach her the basics that are available to her.
    Was hoping to come up a notch or to so I wouldn't have to think about
    buying another one for me, but oh well. I like a lot more manual ability
    sometimes.
    Interesting. I'll have to think about it when I go shopping. Does it
    give results in specific cameras and models to look at or avoid?

    I really haven't looked at these sites for a while. I show them here in the
    expectation you will have a look see.
