    Anyone got any experience of this item? If so I'd
    appreciate any views - particularly any down points.

  2. I have the DX6390 and find it excellent to use, with no real down points
    except I would not use a lithium battery pack such as the one that came
    with it as it is a fraction longer than rechargeable ones and in my
    opinion puts extra strain on the battery compartment cover.

    I am happy with the picture quality and examples can be seen at the site
    in my sig file below.

    Thanks for the info but I am referring to the 6490 Typo?

  4. I am aware of that, but problems with one model in a range often happen
    in others as well.....

  6. Hi Pete,

    I can't answer your query directly, though I used work in a camera store and
    the DX6490 seemed quite good and if I remember correctly, uses its own
    recharchable lithium battery.

    One big distinguishing feature of this model is that it has an pc sync
    socket for studio flash, so if you are after portraits it makes a good
    choice, but it is probably the large lens that attracts you (there's a joke
    here, but I'll resist) . Check out
    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Kodak/ to find more about it and read
    owner comments.

    On this front there are other models worth researching like the Minolta Z1;
    Fuji 5000; Olympus C750/760 and my favourite if I had the funds, the
    Panasonic Z10 with 12x zoom and optical image stabilizer which reduces
    camera chake very well.

    Again, check out the dpreview site and also Steve-digicams that there is a
    link to for more details. Also probably worthwhile getting a few magazines
    for reviews if you have'nt alreadyt done so.
