Phil Askey compares Kodak's Pro SLR and Nikon's D1x - which comes off as the winner?
Our friends at the Digital Photography Review website have today posted their review of Kodak's DCS 760 digital camera, a Nikon F5-based 6 megapixel Pro SLR which we first broke news of on March 21st... Phil compares the DCS 760 directly with Nikon's D1x digital camera, and it looks like he was much more impressed with the Nikon camera:
"Kodak have learned their lesson (the hard way), this time well aware of the threat from the D1x and have come up with a camera (clearly based on the 660) which is more than capable of taking it on. You really can't use the DCS 760 and not like it. It's a solid, reliable, fast, high resolution professional tool. For more on this, read Phil's lengthy (and well-written) review of the Kodak DCS 760. When you're done, get a second opinion from photojournalist Rob Galbraith, and another from our good friend Uwe Steinmueller of Digital Outback Photo.

Downside... The body has been around for a few years and is on the large side, the sensor is starting to show its age, and you just can't ignore the blue channel noise (at least I can't). The DCS 760 is most definetly the best Kodak DCS yet but I still feel it's just not quite enough to beat Nikon's D1x."
