Dave Etchells tries out Kodak's 2-megapixel, fixed focal-length digicam...
When Dave first saw Kodak's DX3500 camera, he had to admit that his expectations were pretty low. The camera has *no* controls, for white balance or exposure compensation, so he expected it to fail miserably under anything other than sunny daylight shooting conditions. Very much to his surprise, it actually snapped excellent photos under all kind of lighting: Daylight, cloudy, incandescent, fluorescent, even strange mixes of different light sources come out looking great.
We *really* like cameras to have zoom lenses, so much prefer the DX3500's close sibling, the DX3600 for that reason. For the ultimate in a simple-to-operate camera that takes very good pictures, it's hard to go wrong with the DX3500 though. (Take our advice though, and spend the extra $40-50 or so on the 3600: A zoom lens really adds a lot to your picture taking!) Read our short-form review to find out more!
