I am trying to answer this question too.. and cannot give you a definite answer. Here are the outstanding differences between the DX6490 and C-750.

Kodak DX6490

Nice bundle, battery and dock for cheaper price
Kodak easyshare system makes the camera easier for beginners
Built in memory 16mB + SD slot(which is cheaper than xD)

Manual controls could be better
No Raw file / tiff file (Please correct, i read the manual but could not find anything but the standard jpeg)

Olympus C-750

Camera has a good reputation.
Lots of adaptors for lens, telephoto and wide angle
better manual controls

Autofocus could be better
Bundle not good, xD cards are expensive

Overall I think the Kodak 6940 is better, but need more information and picture comparison to make the decision. Also I would love to see how the HP 945 stacks up against these two.

Default Same boat

I'm in the same boat - looking for a 4-5 MP big zoom camera. Seems to come down to the dx6490, C-750 or 945. In my mind, the C-750 is edging out the others, but each person has his/her own criteria.

To that end, I've started a one page comparison site at:


Please take a look and let me know what you think. If you have any suggestions for the page, also please let me know.
