Opinions Kodak CX6445

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Larry R Harrison Jr, Feb 8, 2005.

  1. I'm considering this as a backup for my Canon Digital Rebel. It's a
    consumer-grade 4 megapixel P & S camera.

    Obviously I wouldn't consider it in the same grade as cameras like the Nikon
    Coolpix 5400 or 5700, Canon Powershot G3, but if it's in the same league as
    a camera like the Canon Powershot A80 (which is also 4 megapixels, but does
    have more manual controls & a swivel LCD) or a Nikon Coolpix 5200 then I'd
    consider it. I mean to use it not for "photography" exploits but for more
    everyday things--but with this camera being 4 megapixels it would be a cut
    above what (say) a Nikon Coolpix 2200 or 3200 would do. (Again close to the
    league of something like the Nikon Coolpix 5200 etc would be fine.)

    Someone is selling one on the Internet for $120 shipped.

    Tips? Opinions? I can find nothing on this at sites like dpreview.com,
    megapixel.net, or dcresource.com

    For that price, it would be a good deal.

  3. Hmm, okay. Well, again, my questions are kind of like:

    Would you guys/girls etc consider the Kodak CX6445 to be in the same level
    of quality & usability as a camera like (say) the Canon Powershot S410,
    Nikon Coolpix 4200, Pentax Optio S4, Fuji F440, Sony DSC-P73, cameras like
    that? (Or, maybe as a stretch, the Canon Powershot A85?)

    In other words, does this model hold its own against other 4 megapixel P&S
    cameras of its type like those I listed? Or is it a step-down image-quality
    wise etc?

    (I realize it might not be in quite the same league as the Canon Powershot
    A80, Nikon Coolpix 4300 or an older design like the Canon Powershot
    S45--because all of those are 4 megapixels like the Kodak but they have more
    manual controls--and in the case of the A80, a swivel LCD as well.)

    So, in other words, if a Kodak CX6445 was selling for $120 shipped and a
    Sony DSC-P73 (or even the Canon S410) was selling for $120 shipped, would
    those be of equal value picture-taking wise and overall usability-wise
    (disregarding the smaller size of the S410)?

    If not, I'm thinking--maybe a 3.2 megapixel like the Nikon Coolpix 3200
    would be better. Someone is selling one of those for $148 shipped. But I
    wanted at least 4 megapixels in this case.

    As nearly as I can tell, you are comparing the CX6445 with cameras
    costing several times as much. Compare it with other cameras at the
    same price, and it will come out quite well. I use the DX6440 and find
    it very nice. I understand the CX6445 is pretty much the same camera
    without the manual features (which very rarely use). A 4 mp camera with
    4x optical zoom for $120 is a steal.

  5. Thanks for the tips. I guess that answers my question--get it.

    Thing is, unfortunately (and hearing this pretty good recommendation only
    exasperates my feeling this way), the person isn't responding to any of my
    messages. They could simply be away from their computer--it's only been a
    day, after all--but I don't want to hear from them 5-7 days from now saying
    "sorry, forgot to update the site, it was sold" or whatever. (It's at a site
    like Fred Miranda--not that particular one, but one like that, which I've
    had good experiences at.)

    Greetings Larry,

    Actually, I believe you are referring to the Kodak DX6440 an advanced
    amateur camera that has many features. If you can get one at $120, I would
    do it. Nice features and an excellent model. It would be perfect for the
    application you have noted. Good luck in your searches. Try visiting the
    following web page.

    If you have questions on this camera let me know.

    Interesting, Ron, that even you don't seem to know about the CX6445.
    It's right there on the Kodak site. Grin.
    But I completely agree about the DX6440. I have been quite pleased with
    mine.

    Greetings Ron,

    Yes, I forgot about that one. I am home with the flu and trying to keep my
    hand in. You got me Ron. I do know about the camera. I believe it was a
    special offer camera that came home to Kodak. Still a great deal at the
    $120 price.

    Talk to you soon, if I am still around. :)
