    Written on: 01/11/2010

    Excellent digital camera! I have 2 of these. I have a friend that had one for over 6 years taking thousands of photos. There are design flaws, the hands on engineering is not that good. Where you hold the right side should be more room for fingers. the menu wheel is not easily turned by your thumb as the newer Kodaks are. The joystick is the weak link of this camera. It will break if not handled very carefully. My friends went out after 5 years of use. Some get only a year or so. Kodak has… Read Full Review

    Written on: 17/12/2007 by toymart (1 review written)

    I have been using the dx6490 continuously for three over years. I use it for work taking pictures of items in our internet auctions. To date we have taken over 80,000 pictures and have never even had to replace the battery, it has been dropped on more than one occasion and still works fine. You will not get better value for money… Read Full Review

    “The joystick went bad after 3 months. You can't even...”

    Written on: 14/10/2006 by JEFFGORDON24 (1 review written)

    The joystick went bad after 3 months. You can't even set the time, let alone take a picture when the joystick is bad. My Kodak EasyShare DX6490 digital camera is now a $300.00 paper weight. Kodak refuses to fix it because I can not find my receipt. It has a manufacturer date on the camera, so they should have been able to tell it was only a few months old and still covered under the 1 year warranty.

    Terrible customer service. I will never buy another Kodak product… Read Full Review

    Written on: 15/11/2004 by John Orrell (1 review written)

    The Kodak DX6490 camera is a good-quality SLR-style digital compact with as many features as most users will ever need. The lens quality is good, and it has a strong armoury of features found on traditional film SLRs, such as programmed exposure, shutter-priority, aperture-priority and manual. There is also matrix metering, centre-weighted metering and spot metering, though changing the metering options is not fast or intuitive, and requires the user to scroll through various menus to get… Read Full Review

    The Kodak DX6490 camera is really this good. I know I'd be so fussy in manual mode that I'd miss the 'moment'. Automatic is enough for all but the most, er, retentive of users. Preprogramme your tastes when you first set up, and that's it… Read Full Review

    Written on: 24/10/2004 by S A Panicker (1 review written)

    A dependable Machine, I should say, in your pocket, 10X optical-SCHNEIDER-GREAT TELE and wonderful macros. Precison focusing and advanced features you would get in expensive cameras only. An apurture of 8 giving really deep depth of field in manual mode. WONDERFUL OUTDOORS. 4MP is more than what a "prosumer" would need. Incredibe battery life more than 300 shots with preview on. You will be more than glad to own this lovely Camera. Thank You Kodak… Read Full Review

    Written on: 27/04/2004 by im4udevco (1 review written)

    I must concede that this Kodak DX6490 is a great digital camera to buy.
    As a "professional" amateur in digital photography, this is probably all the camera you'll ever need. First, it's huge 2.2" LCD has a rich colour and gives you a true look of what the actual shot would be. For it's price, I am all for the manual controls it comes with. I am sick and tired of people criticizing it's lack of manual focus and white balance. If you want a camera with one, then buy one and stop whining. The zoom… Read Full Review

    <br>I DO own one and entirely agree with the review. In fact, the camera's so good I can't envisage ever wanting to upgrade.

    I would recomend the Kodak DX6490 camera to anyone. Especially if you want to get up close to things. Great if you want it for a point and shoot or if you want to do some manual things. I work at Best Buy and sell cameras so I've tested out quite a few. Kodak in general is very easy to use and great for the money… Read Full Review

    Here we go again. We have 3 Unhelpful marks. Where is the review unhelpful? We've been told the camera takes great pics with which I totally agree having owned one for a while.

    <br>Surely, this sort of information is what the average photographer wants to know. The more technically adventurous are well served by various specialist Websites.
