Steve Sanders gets hands-on with Kodak's first optical zoom digicam in the 'EasyShare' system...
The fine folks at Steve's Digicams have posted a review of the Kodak DX3600 zoom, a 2.3 megapixel, 2x optical zoom digicam that was first officially announced back on April 23rd along with the fixed focal length DX3500. Both cameras are a part of Kodak's new 'EasyShare' system, which is essentially a camera dock specific to the DX series digital cameras and a software package called 'Kodak Picture Software', which combine to allow 'one-touch' image transfer and simplified printing/emailing. Steve concludes:
"This is a great camera if you're just starting out in digital. It has very good image quality and the 1800 x 1200 pixel size images will yield photo-quality prints on today's photo inkjet printers right up to 8 x 10 inch size. The "Good" quality 900 x 600 pixel images are excellent for 4 x 6 inch prints or for web page or email use. Everything you need is in the box including software to view, edit and manage your digital images. Unlike other "entry level" digicams, the DX3600 Zoom has a Video Out feature so you can also enjoy your pictures on the television screen too. There is no learning curve with this camera, just put the batteries in it, turn it on and start enjoying digital photography today!" Steve's is the first review we've seen of the DX3600, and if you're considering an entry-level camera you should definitely give it a read... There's a good long look at the camera's design and control, as well as plenty of sample images to give you an idea of just what it can do!
