Hi,

I am new to the forum, but have used Steve's Digicams for many informed camera choices. I bought my wife a Kodak 6490 and we used it on a recent trip and were happy with the results for the most part. I decided to buy her the adapter, polarizer, wide angle lense and a uv guard. I told her she could keep the adapter on the camera with the uv guard attached for most of her pictures. She took some pictures at work and thought that the pictures were too dark. Could the UV guard and/or the adapter affect picture quality significantly? She wants to remove the adaptor and use it as needed, while I thought it could stay on all of the time. Any thoughts on this? I included a sample picture.
Thanks,

TerryV6

Here are some more pictures to test this:

subject is indicating frame number.


Number 1: Taken with adaptor and uv filter lense guard on.

Number 2: Taken with adaptor on but filter lense off.

Number 3: Taken with camera only, no attachments.

All of these were taken at default settings with flash available...

Terry,,,the adapter will affect the flash operation on the 6490,,,it`s well documented..

In any decent light though the UV filter and adapter will not cause any problems..

This will worsen if you have the wide angle schneider lense attached too by the way..i leave mine off at all times unless needed.....i just don`t like the added bulkiness it adds i guess....

Hi Brian,

You mentioned "well documented"... I tried to find references to this. I am not a camera buff, so is this a problem with all adapters, or is this occurring with the Kodak 6490? Thanks for the input btw.

It`s a problem with the 6490 and possibly the 7590,,,,iy`s due to blockage of the sensors just above where the adapyer screws in.....when i say well documented i mean i`ve seen about 20+ threads on this since it`s release last year....

The only solution is an external flash which plugs into the side of the camera PC port..
