Basic Jpeg
Normal Jpeg
Fine Jpeg
Raw (converted)
TIFF?

So many options with the P850 over the 6490.

The best thing to do is look at the reviews.

Boily-

If you read the http://www.dpreview.com review of the Kodak P-880, you will find a somewhat veiled explanation about why most users find the P-850's lens quality to be an issue. The internal post processing actually attempts to save the lens deficiencies, but cannot quite cut it.

Schneider does well with lesser zooms such as those found in the V-series cameras, but the P-850's lens measurably comes up a bit short ofits designated task. Take a read. I am sure that you will find it to be interesting.

BigDwag-

I certainly agree, my DX-6490 is much sharper than my P-850. And that is a shame.

greygeek-

the http://www.dpreview.com comment was that the image softness found in the P-850 was due to a combination of a soft lens and a noisy sensor. Perhaps I have a defective camera. It is on it way to Kodak right now to be checked.

BTW dpreview also pointed out the softness of the lens in their P-880 review as well. Perhaps you are lucky and got a much better operating P-850 than I did.

And least there be any question about my ability to make the "soft image" judgement, I have been a professional for over 50+ years and I regularly shoot with dSLR and large format cameras as well. believe meI know what a soft image is.
