Well, I did the the same comparrison and went with the S5000 and now the S7000. The Kodak is less noisy, but not noticable on prints up tp 8 x 11 and I made quite a few of them. Also the possibility to add lenses, macro filters, filters ( I made great Infra red pics) and wide - tele adaptors ( Raynox brings it to 15.4 optical zoom and 27mm wide angle) is at least for me a big advantage. If you only need a point and shoot, go with the Kodak, or just go into a store who carries both and compare the materials used and you will see, the Fuji is much better build.

alvitdk,

I have made a few 13x19 prints from both my DX6490 and CP5700 and they both look equally as good as each other. Hardly any 'grainy' features unless you get about 5" away. No complaints from clients so far.

Most photos are 8x10 and smaller, the details do look fantastic. Not many people order above that size but when they do I know the DX6490 can handle it.

Koruvs,

I'm not saying that there is a problem with printing bigger sizes with the Kodak, what I mean is that you're right, the Fuji has more nois, but it's unlikely to see unless you look at them at 100% on the screen or really big , big, big prints. So for normal use ( and that was the question) features are the real main difference between both and that is , at least for me, the big selling point.

He just needs to go back to the kodak forum. He is trolling here trying to run down Fuji....we have seen this before. :roll:
The kodak is inferior. I have used both. Steve states "The DX6490s shooting performance was a mixed bag." The End

I'm not trolling, I was helping KrustY make the right choice. I was also showing you the DX6490 is not the P&S you make it out to be.

Lets agree to disagree and be done with it.

I would definitely go for S5000

From http://www.pricegrabber.com
Kodak $396.80 refurbished
Fujifilm S5000 $308.95


For the price alone, S5000 beats Kodak, more to grow with, can do 3 Megapixels AND 6 Megapixels

Image quality? Try to grab some samples from each and print the size YOU need, and compare

I've been shooting nonstop since Nov. 2003 with S5000, wow, what an amazing camera.

Image quality,
here's a some samples between the 2 cameras from another forum.....

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/re...essage=8002478

"In my opinion, the Kodak takes granier pictures even at lower resolution than the S5000. Take a look..."-saintrob

I'm a real beginner PNShooter myself, don't look at my website for great pics,

Goofas has great sample pics.

goodluck,
Vic

Even though I picked the s7000 over the Kodak, I eliminated the s5000. For me, the Kodak was the clear winner over the s5000. The s7000 is a much better camera than the Kodak, really only lacking in zoom range. But I'd take the Kodak over the s5000 any day.

Krusty,

BTW, Kodak has just announce lense adaptors for the DX6490, they have a Wide Angle add-on lense and a few filters. I wonder/hope they release a Telephoto as well.
