Im still searching for a new camera, and
I would like to know if there is a camera that is comparable to the

Kodak Easyshare DX7590,
with at least
5.0 megapixels
10X optical zoom
3X digital zoom
2.2" high-resolution indoor/outdoor display
Manual and custom controls
High-speed, low-light auto-focus
Continuous shooting and bracketing modes
22 scene and color modes.

that is made by another company?
Please, any suggestion will be of help.
Thanks in advance.

In following thread, we were all quite eager to see & touch the FujiFilm Finepix S9000 (US) / S9500 (EU) Zoom:

Seems to be what you are looking for. Other manufacturers have similar offer. But this one is the latest generation with good Zoom 28-300, Quick start,optics, ISO sensitivity, TFT tilting screen, video, 9M pixels...

AAT-

Just based on reading elsewhere, may we assume that one of the most important priorities for you might be proper/realist color rendition in your photos? And is there a budget that you have in mind?

I recalled that you, AAT, were most concerned about the color rendition of the color purple. So I spied this book cover this morning, and using a very inexpensive digital camera, the Olympus C-5500 (it sells for about $200 (US) on the internet)I took this photo of the purple on the cover.

The color rendition seems normal to me. What do you think?

Why not the 7590?? Kodak has been in the photo business for a long long time and is quite reputibleI know a lot of folks with one and they are really happy with it. I own a siular madel the DX6490 and have been more than happy with mine. It , the 7590 meets all your specifications and is now being discounted at a lot of stores so why not buy the one you were asking about?? Here is a photo with the 6490.....
