An in-depth look at Kodak's latest 6 megapixel Pro SLR from a pro photographer...
Our good friend Rob Galbraith over at the Rob Galbraith Online website has posted an in-depth review of Kodak's DCS 760 professional digital SLR, accompanied by numerous sample images. Rob is definitely a good man for the job, with years of experience as a photojournalist and digital photography consultant, so what does he think of Kodak's latest Pro digicam?
"With Nikon and the D1 ruling the pro roost for the past 18 months and Canon showing a solid first effort in their advanced amateur D30, I for one had counted Kodak out of the digital SLR arena. The DCS 760 shows that Kodak is anything but done. If you can live with its overstuffed body and potential service hassles, the DCS 760 should reward you with crispy sharp images that print with really good colour, even when enlarged to poster size. Kodak has taken the best of the DCS 660, married it to the architecture of the DCS Pro Back, and come out with a camera that I predict will stand tall, both literally and figuratively, against Nikon's upcoming D1X. Prospective purchasers of a high-resolution camera that have already settled on Nikon's big-file SLR would be well-advised to take a look at the DCS 760 in detail before making a final decision."
