Kodak EasyShare Z7590 review

The KODAK EASYSHARE Z7590 camera is ideal for people who want to further experiment with photography using a fast performing digital camera that includes both automatic and manual settings. Specifically, the Z7590 model offers a professional quality SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON 10X optical zoom lens (38 – 380 mm equivalent) for outstanding dynamic range, fine detail and delicate highlights, and it is the first Z-Series camera to feature flash sync connection. Further, the camera is equipped with a live histogram, which enables users to see the exposure of their subject before taking the shot. Additionally, the exclusive KODAK Color Science chip results in portraits with edge-to-edge sharpness and brightness, rich color, and highly accurate exposure.

CNET have posted their Kodak EasyShare Z7590 review and rated this digicam 7.2 out of 10 or Very Good. They went on to say-
"The Kodak performed decently, emerging from its power-off slumber in 3.9 seconds, then snapping off pictures every 1.8 seconds thereafter, with a slight slowdown for flash recycling that stretched the time to 2.4 seconds. The EasyShare Z7590 supplies two burst modes. The traditional mode captured 5 full-resolution frames in 2.1 seconds. The Last Shot mode, which we're increasingly seeing in newer cameras, grabs up to 30 shots in a row while the shutter release is depressed but saves only the last 5 images. This mode is perfect for, say, capturing a high jumper clearing the bar. You can start shooting just before the leap and let go of the shutter release as the leap is completed, capturing only the peak moments. Shutter lag under high-contrast lighting was acceptable at 0.8 second but, thanks to the lack of a light assist, ballooned to 1.1 seconds under difficult low-contrast lighting conditions."

They weren't entirely impressed however, so if you're considering buying the EasyShare Z7590 perhaps a full read would be in order.
