    Kodak is unchallanged?

    When we talk of delivering colors, can anyone beat Kodak's digital cameras?

    There is probably nothing I can say that will change your mind. So I won't say yes.

    I do like the Kodak colors, but I would not say it is unchallenged. This is by comparing at least two cameras - DX7590 and Panasonic FZ20.

    Also, in auto mode with flash on Kodak, I seem to always get a slight blue tinge. It does get corrected in P mode with daylight or open/shade white balance.

    I like the way FZ-20 takes photographs in auto-mode + its Image Stablization at ultra zoom + all manual controls. If it had not been the $150 increased price tag of the FZ-20, its size and the design, I might have very well gone for the FZ-20.

    Thanks for opinion

    The images I saw from FZ20 has lot more noise with compared to 7590, that kills sharpness and crisp of images. IS of FZ20 and lowlight focus can be better but for that many would not like to pay 150$. But my emphasize was on colors, and Kodak delivers great in that area.

    I just now noticed that Jeff has posted these images for Panasonic FZ-20:

    Oh, by the way now I own a Kodak DX7590 and I did find the colors of the two very comparable.

    Maybe kodak's was a little bit more saturated - now that I think about it.

    msam,
    You may be right but whenever I saw pics taken by FZ20 they dont look impressive with colors.

    Could you provide links to those pictures and may say what it is about the colours that you're not impressed with. There are a lot of people now considering buying the FZ20 so to help them make any final purchasing decisions, that sort of information would be helpful.

    I have to find them again, so please wait till weekend. But you can check pics on dpreview/forums/kodak talk and on panasonic talk and you may feel the difference.

    Moreover, I would not like to stop anybody, the reply which I gave to msam was my presonal feeling and I wont force others to feel same.
