Default What are your thoughts on the upcoming Kodak Max Z990?

I know it's not out yet, so no actual reviews on it. I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on it with the info released so far? Has Kodak used a sensor like the CMOS BSI one before? So far, on screen at least, I'm liking the way the Max is shaping up to be. I like that it can take video with stereo sound now, but if I look at the pictures right the two mics are right above the lens. It seems to me they would pick up the zoom motor in video.

Personally I prefer to wait until we see some well known professional reviews on the Z990.

Me too-and why couldn't they at least of put a PC sync socket for off-camera external flashes.

Considering Kodak's financial position at the moment, we may never see the Z990 on dealer's shelves.

I have been reading the specs that Kodak sent me...it is similar to the 981 minus 2 megapixals but added more zoom. Prefer they kept it at 14 or made it 16.
But, we shall see.
