Digital Outback begins DCS Pro 14n report|
(Thursday, April 24, 2003 - 00:36 EDT)
Our good friend Uwe Steinmueller of the Digital Outback Photo website has begun a report on Kodak's DCS Pro 14n digital camera.
Uwe's report literally started today, so thus far there's only the very beginnings of what is to come. His initial impressions, though, already show that as described in our own review the camera can frustrate with one shot, and then delight with the very next press of the shutter button - the scene being photographed making a large difference in which happens.
Uwe's very first photo shows some of the problems that Kodak is experiencing with the 14n - over-agressive noise reduction, magenta artifacts around tree branches in front of a bright sky, and color aliasing artifacts due to the lack of an anti-aliasing filter. Yet the next shot shows off what a beautiful, detailed photo can be gained from such a high resolution sensor.
It will be a while before Uwe completes his field report, we're sure - but we're interested to see how his feelings gel with our own. If you're considering the DSC Pro 14n, definitely keep an eye out on Uwe's report, and then get a second opinion from our own review...
