There seems to be a big hype around the new Kodak digital camera, the EasyShare DX7590.
I've seen at the Digital Photography Reviews Kodak Talk Forum (http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/forum.asp?forum=1011) that many people have bought the DX7590 and some have already posted sample pictures that look terrific. So this seems like an excellent product, just as great as its predecessor (and perhaps even better than it).
So, I was wondering - this product seems really interesting, I love the 5 megapixel thing, and the 10x optical zoom (with the professional-quality Schneider Kreuznach lens) was very attractive.
My question is: has anyone experienced both cameras? I'd like to hear about the differences between the two of them, and the improvements that the DX7590 has, because people seem to be running to make an upgrade from their DX6490.
The product page at the Kodak website is very promising. I love Kodak's website, it's a very good one. :)

Thanks to anyone who answers!

Thanks for your reply. I have already considered doing this before opening this thread, but there are two problems:
A. I cannot register, because I am under the age of eighteen.
B. Even if I were eighteen years old, I wouldn't be able to register since I only have a Hotmail email account.

No problem about the age, the forum isn't moderated and it's a very polite in there, so don't worry. (I can't remember the last proper argument in there that didn't involve me)
With the hotmail account, it's the same as AOL (which I unfortunately use), just register and keep resending the info loads of times and eventually your password will come through. I just kept going back one screen and resubmitting about 20 times.


I use a 6490 and have no plans to upgrade to a 7590, some have got swept up with the hype, but if the speed isn't that important, get a 6490 as they will be keenly priced.

Here's a couple of 6490 shots. (Tell me what's wrong with these, as nobody else has)

What's wrong with these? I'll tell you what's wrong with these. They are way better photos than I've been taking. That's what's wrong with these!

LOL @ Fred I don't see anything wrong with the pictures. Furthermore, I think I'm kinda a jealous! :o

Thanks for the answer! Your help is much appreciated.
I'll try to register the way you did. Thanks for the offer, nice to know there's a way to bypass the tough system. That forum is so great!
By the way, there is nothing wrong with these pictures you posted. I'm very much fond of the last two. Nice shots! That sports shot looks very professional. You totally managed to capture the moment.
Good job there. :)

Excellent pictures, Cold Snail. Can you tell us the specifications of each one?
