I promised Tom that I would shoot a bunch of manual A&S priority shots there is also a B&W and a fully manual shot as well.

The first shot is set on rock&roll as a baseline to compare against, any thoughts would be nice. I did nothing to these shots, they are straight from the camera except to downsize them for posting.

That's allot of pics to upload. :?

Anyway, for my choices amongest all of them I would say it was a toss up between fully automatic and fully manual, for my tastes.

Hi Terry;

Thanks for the uploads. Yeah, it's a lot of shots. The results are quite comparable to the 6490. On a bright day like that, I would tend to leave the ISO fairly low. I only use 400 at night, and then I clean up the images with Neat Image.

Question: does the 7590 not go any higher than f-8? I was hoping Kodak would crack that barrier with the new camera.

Another question: in auto mode what aperture does the 7590 choose for lanscapes? The 6490 tends to "low-ball" the exposure, whereas I would prefer a wider DOF.

Thanks again, Terry.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

F8.0 on the 7590 too. I also think it tends to pick the f2.8 for landscapes as well.

You're welcome, for the demo. No pick for fav's amongest them?

Hi Terry very nice shots! I also have the 7590 but haven't gotten to playing with manual mode yet.Unfortunately our weather hasn;t been very cooperative lately.

Thanks for letting me see the differences

Well, most of the shots look pretty well exposed. Kudos to Kodak - the "rock and roll" shot is spot on. I don't know if some of the shots were more evercast, but the sky seems to wash out on a few. I realize, of course, that what you were trying to do was demonstrate the camera's performance under the different settings, so this is certainly not a criticism of your technique. It looks like the 7590 can take some excellent shots in manual mode when the recipe is right, and if you aren't sure of the recipe, it does pretty well on its own.

Thanks Terry.

Regards,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

I agree the entire picture to me seems to wash out the further from rock and roll or fully manual the pic gets, with the worst shots coming in the middle of the test. These shots were all within about 5/6 minutes of each other. The fully manual and R&R shot at both ends of the test, but the settings I chose that looked and made the most sense to me being pretty close to the R&R in value. I too am pretty impressed by Kodaks choice of settings for the shot.
