    I am considering the Kodak dx6440, I was looking at other cameras but this
    seems like a great package.

    I need an in pocket camera with protected lens when not in use, good auto
    with selectable auto mode for the family to use plus lots of manual control
    for me. I was considering the Canon S45 but the Kodak is lots cheaper. I am
    familiar with the specs for both camera and have used a Canon S40 a few
    times so I know what that the S45 will feel like to use.

    I am interested to hear comments about the lens sharpness of the Kodak and
    the impact the Kodak compression which I understand is set for each level of
    megapixel output.

    A lesser need but something that may occur is photographing old family
    documents, scanning is not really a possibility given where they are stored,
    so I am interested in the lens characteristics for flat field photography -
    a big ask for most standard cameras. I have the equipment to do this in film
    but a pocket digital would be a lot more convenient.

    thank for any input

    Phil

    Thanks for your response

    In addition to the things you mentioned there is also a manual setting which
    gives aperature or shutter priority.

    See the description of PAS on

    Another feature that looks very good is the indoor /low light response.
