    Is the DX7950 that much better than DX6490?

    I've owned the DX6490 for about a year now and it's been a good companion for me. My only gripes were that the low light pictures were difficult to take without a tripod. Recently, I seem to have lost that camera and I'm considering buying the 5.0MP version. My question is this. Other than the increase in megapixels, are there any other improvements to this camera? How is the night/low light pictures with the camera?

    PS: I actually purchased the Canon Digital Rebel SLR...just pure awesomeness. Unfortunately, that camera is just waaaay too big to walk around with. As nice as it is, I just don't need that much camera. So, it's going back and I'm missing how easy it was to use the Kodak camera.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    PSS: Here are two pic I took with the 6490. Notice how sharp the second picture is and the dullness of the first indoor low lighting pic. I usually just point and shoot. The second picture was taken with a Kodak tripod.

    The Kodak 6490 versus the Kodak 7590

    Essentially the 7590 increased the resolution to 5.0mp versus the 4.0mp available on the 6490. Yes, there were some additional subtle changes made to the 7590 to improve it, but as a formoer 6490 owner you will find yourself very comfortable with the 7590 and can begin taking digital photos immediately.

    Both digital cameras has been reviewed on this site. Take a look at the reviews for the real nitty gritty.

    Well, I bit the bullet and got the 7590. I'll post pictures when I have a chance. Thanks a lot for your advice. I will be posting here whenever I can.
