Hello,

I was very interested in the Kodak dx6490 but I confess that I am a little frustrated/concerned with 2 things about this camera. One is the JPEG compression. Why do they configured a so agressive compression (4:1:1)? They developed a great camera and fail in stupid (in my opinion) details like that! We can really note defferences in the image quality between a camera that uses the (4:1:1) compression and other that uses (4:2:2) or (4:4:4)?

The other is the proprietary batteries. It makes me uncomfortable to think that I will be forced to buy only proprietary batteries instead of choosing anything else, like AA ones, what would give me more flexibilities!

Thanks.

As far as the batteries go, I find it a pain in the a__!!! to find the KLIC 5001 that came with the camera..As far as the compression goes it is a little aggressive but I find that a 8/10 print looks pretty darn good and the lens seems to be nice and sharp...
