Hard to think about replacing it. (Kevin Blount — 07/26/2009)

I have had my camera for about 3 years now and I have to say that I have not found anything that this camera won't do. Even though it is only a 5 mp the photo's are absolutely wonderful. I love the docking station for charging. I am still using the original battaries. I was planning on updating this year to a 10 mp camera but have been very frustrated with what is on the market. I have even heard that Kodak is no longer a good buy. They no longer make the charging dock station. Why did they screw up a good thing. The reviews I have read for the upgrade to this camera have not been very good so I'm not sure what I will do from here. It is a great camera and will be hard to find something as good.

It's Gone! (Diane Johson — 07/01/2009)

I loved this camera! It was stolen from my bag at work and I know I'll never get it back. I have requested that the workplace replace it and have received the usual stall tactic. I really loved this camera. I know I'll never be able to replace it.

Kodak Z7590 (Jim — 04/10/2008)

Have owned for about 2 years and completely satisfied. I would buy again if looking for a camera. No problems. Great battery.

Read your owners manual (j — 12/26/2007)

I've had this camera for a while now and can honestly say it takes as good a picture as my wife's old Canon AE1. She still uses that relic and prefers it over any digital out there.
Like most people I'm looking for that one in a million shot and I take tons of pictures. Since I hate changing out film it was easy for me to fall in love with this camera. With a 1 or 2 GB SD card you can shoot all day and review each shot or wait to do it at home later.
Unfortunately I have never read the entire owners manual and at my daughter's high school graduation ceremony I chose that moment in time to try the manual settings. Big mistake because every picture came out blurry.
So, lesson learned. Read the owners manual first then operate camera. Photography 101.
I really don't think there is anything I dislike about this camera and would recommend it to anyone.

Great all 'round camera (roy — 03/21/2007)

I've been through the entire spectrum of photography including huddling in dark rooms refilling 35mm cans. Then real life happened with kids, and yards, and all. Tried to stay in it when digital first hit with a Nikon. It was OK but at 1.3MP soon overcome. Until the Kodak 7590 came along I remained unexcited. This little camera is really sweet. Makes taking pictures fun again. Sure it's no SLR but who's got the time or money these days. If I told my honey that I was going to spend 3-4K on a really good Digital SLR system that would equal my old my 35mm rig....HA! I've had no problems, great battery life - except for really long days a spare is not required. I've just bought both the tele and W/A and am going to upgrade to the p712. Hope it is as good.

7590 (Nevfel Baytar — 12/06/2006)

The disadvantages:
1.
there are only three multi zones which you can choose. They are lined up in a row. In professional machines there are 7 or 9 multi zones.
2.
It is slow. Continuous AF does not repond quickly.
3. Video resolution is low. It is for giving an overall idea about the occasion.
Except these, it is the best camera for promising inexperienced photographers

Not sure about LONG time use (michelle — 11/08/2006)

at first the camera was right on track. I mean with being in focus.. But now i have to take a few pictures to make sure that the camera focuses.. It got real annoying when i was at a wedding and about 30% of my pictures were fuzzy.
I love this camera but I am being tired of being let down with fuzzy pictures

Great bang for the buck (Brian — 10/16/2006)

I had a DX7590 for about a year before it was stolen, love the camera, great color, great quality. After it was stolen, my wife bought me a refurb Z7590 off the kodak site. Same exact camera, still performing well. It definitely doesn't match up to an SLR, but it has a buncha good features. Zoom is great, don't use the digital zoom, you can easily blow up the pictures on any software and get better results. Macro setting blows, the autofocus wont focus within a foot or so. This camera works best in manual mode though. Does great low light if you know how to use it. Don't believe me? visit my deviantart at http://handloflucifer.deviantart.com and see my gallery, i have a few night shots on there. ISO 80 is a plus, most lower-midrange priced cameras wont do it. I'm currently looking into some lenses for it... anyone know of the good ones? experiences?

All in all, great camera, auto-focus only is a severe downside, fix that and you got one perfect camera!

Main Selector Button Weak (John F. Martin — 08/18/2006)

The function selector lever/joy stick/button seems to be a weak part in the DX7590 camera. I had noticed how flimsy the button felt in a demo unit at Staples before a purchase at another Staples, and sure enough, after one year, the button failed. Kodak wants $150 to fix the problem. I am sure I have purchased my last Kodak anything.

couple of shortcomings (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Compared to the Fuji ds300 I have to use at work, the Kodak 7590 is miles ahead...except for the huge problem of an inadequate flash. Indoor pics are just not possible. Can't find flash program in camera, although instruction book claims such a program exists. That said... I love this camera for nature shots. I have published books, framed pieces and presented hundreds of slide shows with my SLR work... and so far this camera is matching the colour and quality. It's handy yet packs a great zoom.

Bought it, shot it and fell in love with it!!!!!!! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I had to buy my first digicam and decided for DX7590 because of the Schneider lens and Kodak color. It did not dissapoint me. Got used to slow shutter speeds later. handling is excellent. Colors great. and image quality is also great.
Macro focus seems to be a little tricky. Low light performance is also good but need to be on Manual mode. Overall an excellent camera for the price.

Performs better in some areas than in others (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

In general, this is a pretty functional camera for the average user. I haven't had any problems with it, accessories are easy to come by, has excellent battery life. Using fine compression, I generally get very nice photos and have enlarged several to 8x10 and have been impressed with the quality of these.

Weak points include poor performance in lower light conditions, where my old 35mm film camera would have performed excellently. Photos in these conditions come out very under-exposed and grainy.

The macro setting is also a disappointment. I wish I could manual focus, if it's going to do such a poor job on its own. I love taking macro shots but the auto focus is EXTREMELY finicky in this setting and almost never focuses unless 12 inches or more from the subject. If I can't get in close, what's the use of a macro setting?

However, I stand by my 4 star rating. In most applications, this camera has been very good to me and I have been impressed with the results.

Beautiful Color (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I've had this camera for about 18 months now and I am very happy with it. It takes absolutely beautiful photographs. The color is exceptional, as it usually is with Kodak cameras, so no surprise there! The zoom always comes in handy, though if you use the digital zoom the picture quality suffers greatly. One of the only problems I have with this camera is that the auto focus often fails and you have to let up on the shutter and refocus, which can be a pain if you're trying to photograph people. Another thing, though this is true with most digital cameras (minus the pro ones of course), is the poor photo quality in low light conditions, but this can be fixed by some editing with the easyshare software, so it's not a big problem. Also, landscape photos at night are impossible, despite the night landscape mode. Overall though, I love this camera! I am so pleased with the quality of the pictures and the color is the best I've ever seen from a digital camera! It's definately worth it if you're looking for more than a point & shoot.

Fantastic non-battery-hogging camera! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I've had this about a year and love it. I upgraded from its younger sister, the 6490. I bought an adapter ring so that I could use a protective filter, plus some other 52 mm filters. I'm having a ball with it. What I really like is the fact that I can take about 1000 photos (zooming, turning on and off, using the flash) on one battery. Maybe more—I don't know. I bought some cheap 1700 generic batteries on ebay and they have been great. Make sure to use the battery to the very end before recharging it (even though it's lithium) for the best battery life. The only thing I really don't like is the lack of manual focus, but I didn't down-rate it for that because I bought it knowing that it didn't have that capability.

Great all around camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This camera will do everything the average person needs it to do and is excellent for learning on for those who aspire to be something more. The 10x zoom comes in handy when you want to get a little closer to nature. At 5MP, the 3x digital zoom is not worth using, as it drastically decreases the picture quality. The plethera of settings makes taking the perfect picture simple. Aperture, Shutter and full Manual modes are easily set with a dial at your finger tip. An easy transition from the shutter release button. The preset condtions for this camera do a great job, as long as there are no mixed lighting conditions.
Overall, if you are looking for a camera that is going to take great pictures while you are learning what the setting on a camera do, this camera is an EXCELLENT choice. The fact that you can attach filters and external lenses, external flash, DC adapter, and many other accessories available for this camera cannot be matched for the price. Look at http://www.usa101.com/en/member/?p=profile to see some pictures I took with this camera.

The DX7590 Is great it is my 5th Kodak and I love it.. (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I bought this last year for Christmas for self and it took a little while to get the best out of it but I taught myself with not a lot of effort and it takes super pictures.. Would buy another.. Love Kodak my children have Hps and other cameras none compare to mine..

Outstanding!! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This camera is solid. Great pics indoors and out. I suspect those review stating they have probs are operator error or an uncommonly defective camera.

KODAK needs a serious retouch (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I own a HP Photosmart 945 camera for nearly two years. I was very happy with it. It made me feel all the evens of the digital photography. 6 months ago a friend of mine wanted an advice to buy a digi cam. and I said get a 945. He bought it 1/3 cheaper than I did. But after buying it he could not stand the pressure of the trendy and turned it back considering to buy a DX7590. Since than I did not find the chance to ask how it was going but last month the company bought 4 of the DX7590 and now we have to use them. With one word 7590 can not even get closer to the old 2003 model Photosmart 945.

Never a problem... (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

After purchasing a Kodak cx4310 and owning it for about a year I was impressed with the pictures that this little camera took. I decided that I wanted to upgrade to a more advanced digital camera. 15 months ago I purchased a Kodak DX7590. This is my third digital camera and I love it. I have taken literally hundreds of photos with it in all kinds of settings and it has rarely disappointed me. It is a great camera for a wide spectrum of people. It does require a little more of you than a point and shoot camera. To me this camera would be about perfect if it had manual focus, and image stabilization. Other than that it takes beautiful pictures, is easy to use, and has a lot of bells and whistles. I am very impressed with it. I've had lot's of compliments on the pictures I've taken with it. Remember, no camera is perfect and as with ALL cameras, you have to take a lot of pictures to get the really good ones.

Takes wonderful pictures. (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have owned 4 other digital camera's and this one is the easiest to handle. Love the docking station. The pictures can actually be submerged in water.

Sometimes you get MORE Than You Pay For!! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is not my first digital camera. I have owned and used different manufacturers' cameras and have found that Kodak's color is truer than any on the market. Go figure - they wrote the book on color!! I teach computer graphics and do a lot of digital enhancements to photos. With EVERY other brand of camera I've dealt with - be it Sony, Konica/Minolta, Fuji or Canon, the colors would have to be tweaked in order to achieve natural levels. Not so with any Kodak I've used or worked with photos from. They are consistently vibrant and true-to-life. This camera is no exception and is more than worth the price. Yes, it takes time to learn it nuances, but take the time to learn what it can do, and you'll be able to take photos with the big boys. I've read other negative reviews about this camera, and I have concluded that the writer of those reviews don't know how to use this camera.

I'm an electronics tinkerer and love to put something through its paces.The learning curve on this camera is relatively quick. I've only had it 2 weeks and, over 300 shots later, have a pretty good grasp of what it can do. Yes, I would like image stabilization, but am willing to break out my portable tripod when necessary. It's a small price to pay for a camera of this quality for this price. Image clarity is great, the EV settings work wonderfully and the range of features are a real blessing once you learn how to use them - once again, take the time.I'd recommend this camera to anyone who wants more than a point-and-shoot pocket cam!!

I've Had to Buy TWO Cameras! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I bought one camera, had it 2 weeks, and the zoom lens jammed and would not retract. So I returned it to the store and exchanged it for a new one. Guess what? Same problem after only having used it one time. Again, the zoom lens would not retract, the unit would turn off and not turn on again because the zoom seemed stuck, like it was trying to retract but couldn't. Is this a fluke? Don't know, but I'm really skeptical to get another one.

DX7590 viewfinder (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

The quality resuls from the optical viewfinder is very poor. The camera has an adjustable focus setting for the viewfinder though the best setting of its focus quality is still marginal quality. I rely on using the viewfinder. Many of Kodaks cheaper cameras have better viewfinder focusing quality.

Wonderful to use (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I bought my Kodak on a trip in Thailand when I had a mishap with my SLR. Since I have owned my new camera I have found that it has been reliable and easy to use. It is my first digital camera and I have found it takes great photos in a variety of places and situations. The only negative about this camera is low light use, but after reading other rewiews I realise that it maybe up to me to look into the instructions a bit more. A great travelling camera.

Takes Great Pics (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Solid Performer (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have not touched my SLR since getting the 6490 (model before 7590). Great pics, easy to use, and when dropped from 40" on to ceramic tile and concrete still works like a champ. The ato-focus is not the best, and like many like devices screen cannot be seen in sunlight.

Not intended for bright beach or lake pics, otherwise great camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have used my camera ALOT! I have great results with the exception of when we are at the beach or the lake and the sun is bright. You can not see the screen and the pics taken will turn out horrible! I have tried everything I can think of and nothing fixes this problem. So if you are looking for a camera to take pictures out in the bright sun, at the lake, or the beach, then I would recommend another camera. Otherwise this is a great camera!!!

Takes great pictures (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I was thrilled with this camera. I purchased it for a trip to Paris. It performed better than I had hoped. Was quite upset when it was stolen by TSA in JFK.

Great camera....love the features!!! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I purchased this camera a couple weeks ago and since then have taken about 150 pictures both indoors and out. I have had excellent results all the way around. For those of you who say you have problems with indoor pics...read the manual and learn how to use the different settings. I have taken great pics in my house at night with only one small light on and they have turned out great. It takes some playing with and adjusting but once you learn the differnet settings...it's easy to take great pics. I would definately recommend this camera for intermediate or advanced digital camera users. This is not one to buy if you've never used a digital camera or do not want to have to adjust settings.

Focussing night shots and bright daylight shots are terrible (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This camera has a a good range of features, but try to take shots in bright daylight and you can't see what's on the TFT screen or through the viewfinder. Night time shots are just as bad, you can see the object but the camera can't. My old DC 5000 with clear viewfinder not connected to the electronics was much better in this regard. I have asked Kodak for a refund as the DX 7590 does not meet intended function as a camera.

I am so disappointed (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I've loved this camera to date, but last weekend during an important family get together, I turned it on to take some shots and the screen is black. I can review the photos I've already taken, but although the lens cap is off and the battery is fully charged, the screen is black and the pictures come out black. This happened after only 8 months of ownership. I can't get the shots back that I would've taken at that one time event. Make sure you have a back up plan if you use this camera.

hmmm ... (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

For the few days I have owned this camera I have had that awful sinking feeling in my stomach that only expensive equipment that is not performing as you had hoped can give you - have I wasted my hard earned money ? ... only more time will tell ... I am fighting with the auto focus - it is not consistant enough. I am hoping that with practice and more knowledge about how to work around this camera's down sides the results will improve = think twice about buying this camera ...

Great Camera!!! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

After a few months research i finally decided to get a 7590 despite complaints of bad focusing and exposure as well as blurred shots, in my opinion if you spend the time to learn how to use the settings on the camera and understand the importance of the vast amounts of data it provides i.e "open flash" or indicating poor aperture and shutter speeds in red. Pay attention to these indications and remember that no camera is perfect for every situation and you will get great, if not outstanding quality pictures from this camera.

Professional Beginner (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is a growth camera. After understanding the abilities w/ manual setting, this camera is a great buy. Ok low light pics take some understanding of setting, but that's what makes this a great camera. A little experimenting w/ f-stops and aperture and I was able to film in complete dark with great results. So if your taking above beginning pics use the above beginner settings, Kudos Kodak. Wife permitting I am going to venture up in your DigiCams for even more range and creativity. Again this camera is well worth the bucks.

Red-Eye is Back (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Good Buy (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Just upgraded from a Fuji digital camera to the Kodak DX7590. No comparison.

Am very impressed with the telephoto abilities, and recently took it to a music fest for photos. Daytime shots were superb, night time has usual problems with slow shutter speed under very low light conditions. Went into manual mode on camera and took a number of good photos, previous digital camera under same conditions resulted in a black screen.

It has simple point and shoot for my spouse, and full aperture and shutter controls for the advanced user.

I would buy this camera again.

Great Camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This was our first foray into digital cameras - having always been disappointed with the image quality and resolution of friends older cameras. Like earlier comments, we also find indoor shots and low light shots hard to get good results, but still possible with care.

Got a 512Mb memory card - as the instruction book mentioned nothing of the current 1Gb card compatibility (vague instructions here).

The camera dealer seemed to know nothing of the docking station or the AC power pack.. but that is par for much equipment here in Australia. Still very very happy with it.

Great camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I especially like the 10X optical zoom; that is the reason I bought it. It is so easy to use- amazing! Every day I learn new things to do on this camera. A great buy for the money.

Good construction - not so good focus (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I've had this camera for a little over 6 months, and I've had a continuous problem with the auto-focus both indoors and out. I'm not crazy auto the reliability of the auto focus. I seem to delete one out of three pictures for blurriness even with a flash. It works better with a tripod. Many of the exposure options seem to be too similar. When set properly set and steady, pictures are great. The rechargeable battery seems to last a long time. Controls are easy to use, SD card and cable options are simple. LCD is easy to see. It has very solid construction. Kodak software is annoying, and camera dock takes up space. In my opinion, this camera is trying to do too much and not completely succeeding.

Takes good images, easy to use, poor low-light performance (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This camera is great for daylight photography. Vacation or any kind of outdoor photo-taking would result in great images using the DX 7590.

The colours are crisp, lively and no need for much fuss with the settings. Just use auto.

Indoor photography needs a bit of work. The lighting as well as flash distance must be considered carefully. Too near the subject, and the flash will make for bad contrasts and sometimes reflective effect.

After a few tries, the most basic users will know how to gauge the distance and use the zoom to take closer shots instead of stepping in and letting the flash ruin the picture.

Proper use will result in great results again.

In low light, this camera suffers the most. It can only go up to ISO400 in 5mP mode (800 only for 1.8mP mode). So light sensitivity is an issue.

If you want to take stage performance photos, DO NOT use this camera. I take about 100 photos each performance, using the biggest aperture, the slowest shutter speed possible without blurring the subjects, at ISO400, and still can only use 3 or 4 pictures, which are the ones properly exposed/sharp enough for use.

All in all, a very good camera for beginners. It takes very good, high quality images. Poor performance in low light may suggest you get a proper dSLR that can go to ISO800-1600 with ease.

Easy to use (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I love this camera. I wasn't impressed by other digitals, in fact I put off buying one due to the quality of the pictures.

But my husband talked me into buying this camera. From the shores in North Carolina to football and basket ball games I have no complaints.

Difficult to take indoor shots (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

My old Kodak DC290 took great indoor and outdoor photos in auto mode. Not so with the DX 7590. I've struggled with it for hundreds of photos, downloaded the firmware update and still have to delete 75% of indoor shots. You need to be a pro to take good pictures with this camera. Can't wait to sell it. kodak support was cold, unresulting, unhelpful.
