Kodak - Easyshare DX4900


Kodak supplied both its DX4900 camera and the optional EasyShare USB dock into which it plugs. The camera alone is a similar price to the others in this group. The DX4900 has a chunky and rather ...

Kodak Pegs the Point-and-Shoot Market


There's a lot to like about the Kodak EasyShare DX4900 ($399 list). This 4-megapixel digital camera is one of the easiest-to-use models we've tested. It's also a fast shooter with image quality that is just shy of spectacular, and you can upload images...

kodak Easyshare DX4900 Camera


WHAT'S HOT: Kodak's $399 DX4900 is the least-expensive 4-megapixel camera we've seen so far. And despite being a high-resolution model, the DX4900 Zoom is geared toward casual users who want a camera that's easy to use. Like other Kodak cameras, it...

You can set the shutter speed, but you can't manually set the aperture. The camera includes some basic controls, such as white balance and image compression levels, which are well-labeled in the menu. The camera includes buttons for...

Kodak DX4900 Review


The Kodak DX4900 was announced two days before PMA 2002. The DX4900 is essentially a 'resolution upgraded' DX3900, in the place of that camera's three megapixel CCD the DX4900 has a four megapixel unit. The DX4900 has the same two times optical zoom...

Good colour Good automatic white balance under a variety of light Easy to use design, simple control setup Silent lens mechanism (no extension, focus or zoom noise) Good manual control (for an entry-level) - WB, ISO, exp compen., sharpness, metering...

Nasty mechanical power switch, loud 'CLUNK' from lens cover Visible purple fringing (chromatic aberrations?) on overexposed details Poorly positioned CF eject lever Long lag times for LCD live view Poor CF write performance (>13 sec no matter what...

Here's my rating of the Kodak DX4900: (4 megapixel ultra-compact)

Digital Cameras - Kodak DX4900 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications


Camera Operation With just a few control buttons and only a handful of exposure controls, the DX4900's user interface is uncomplicated, just as its EasyShare name would suggest. Flash, focus, and Self-Timer modes all feature external controls, as do...

Equipped with a 2x, 7.3-14.6mm lens, the DX4900's optical zoom range is equivalent to that of a 35-70mm zoom on a 35mm camera. This is a range from a moderate wide angle to a slight telephoto. Maximum aperture ranges from f/2.8 at full wide angle to...
