Hi everyone !
I sold my FZ-3 and i'm looking for a new affordable camera. I don't want to pay more than 400$. I'm very interrested by the Kodak DX7590 or the Z740. I read lots of review on both camera and i think the 7590 is a better choise.


What do you think?

Both are good cameras. However, IMHO, the Z7590 does have a bit of an edge over the Z740.

In retrospect, I thought though my reply and felt that I really should elaborate why I prefer the Z7590 to the Z740.

The reasons that I prefer the Z750 to the Z740are:

*The Z7590has an on the LCD screen histogram in both the record and playback modes.

*The Z7590 uses proprietary lithium ion batteries that are very inexpensive to purchas from such sources as E-Bay, which hold thir cahrge much longer than those cameras that use nickel metal hydride batteries, such as the Kodak Z740.

*The Z7590 uses a German made Schneider lens in place of the Kodak Retinar lens used on the Z740.

Keep in mind however, that both camera are excellent and take great photos with that tradmark Kodak Color Science chip on board.
