Lately, it seems I am getting unsatisfactory results with my P850. I'm just not happy with many photos and have found myself using my DX7630 more and more (good thing I kept it!) Maybe I'm just in a slump due to this never ending winter weather. Anyhow, what cameras out there, either Kodak or other brands, are pretty comparable to the P850?

Well, the P712 is the direct Kodak replacement. I am curious what your doing different with your DX7630? How about some pictures from both.

Would like to see that myself! A close friend of mine was complaining that his P850 was taking very dull photos. I told him to do an auto levels on his photos and add just a touch of contrast. He now loves his photos...You don't always get great photos right from the camera and even with my new DSLR there is always a little post processing to do to get the photos to approximate what I see with the naked eye when shooting them!

Thanks! I seriously think it's just the COLD and dreery weather we've been having, not much opportunity for photo ops anywhere but indoors and I'm itching to get out and shoot! lol I definatly prefer my outdoor photo results compared to indoor shots with the P850.



The sun finally came out today and it wasn't too cold out and I was able to get a few shots with my p850 that I am happy with :G

I know the feeling Niki, I am having the same issues with my P712.
It is not the best indoor camera, but I love it outside with good light. Seems as though digitals just struggle with a lot of the indoor lighting scenes.
I took a lot of pics of easter, all indoor, and trashed them all.

Do macro's indoors. There are infinite opportunities to do them...Everything is fair game that way!

Hi Scrappy,

Sorry to hear you are not pleased with your recent results? As noted, I would be interested in seeing samples.

If you use your camera on a tripod or other support and the timer, you should be able to get good shots. In addition to such shots, use the camera outside in the sun but keep it steady with good handling techniques.

We can review some of those results, but be sure to provide some detail around how they were taken etc. The more you share the better an analysis can be.

Talk to you soon, Scrappy,

Ron Baird
