Kodak EasyShare Z7590

Editor's Review

The Kodak EasyShare Z7590 offers 5-megapixel resolution, a 10x optical zoom, and an easy-to-grip plastic body. Practically indistinguishable (in name, appearance, and function) from the EasyShare DX7590, the Z7590 offers the same array of manual and automatic controls, a 2.2" LCD screen, and 16 preset scene modes. Unlike the DX7590, however, the Z7590 does not come standard with the Kodak EasyShare docking station, which Digital Camera HQ, highly recommends.

Kodak EasyShare Z7590 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Short life span (Matt — 11/30/2007)

This camera is nice for the first few months. The camera itself lost its quality after only a year and a half. The images became more grainy as the months went on. The printer that came with the package also stopped working within 2 years, and was hardly used. Paying $500 for a package that stops working in lass than 2 years is a bunch of crap.

good except charger problems (robert perlman — 05/19/2007)

Bought 3 replacement batteries for this camera. Will not recharge after 3 uses. Something wrong here. I am disappointed with this matter. Pictures are great.

Kodak Z7590 (christine — 03/02/2007)

Used this everyday for 5 weeks overseas. Extremely impressed with the zoom and the option of eye viewfinder. Extremely easy to use. Only drawback is the size and weight, but this is because we have now been spoiled by lightweight digital cameras. Everyone who used/saw it was impressed. I've already recommended it to others.

Couldn't be happier (Don — 01/02/2007)

On my fourth digital camera and this is the best. Still learning all the features. Best part is Auto takes great photos so you do not need to set anything but it is fun to experiment. I just purchased a Z612 for my girlfriend. It is a great camera too. Be sure to check out the reviews before buying. Kodak makes some great cameras but it has some duds too.

Great Camera. Best I have owned. (Don — 11/20/2006)

This camera is easy to use, and takes great pictures. Color is true and vivid. Battery life is fantastic. 10x zoom is very usful. Loads of features for a $249.00 camrea. Looks like a camera too. This is my 4th and best digital camera! Only negative is the Kodak software. Really bad!

Love it! (Kelly KasaKaitas — 09/07/2006)

I absolutely love my camera. The photos have been absolutely amazing, crystal clear and beautiful color! The burst mode doesn't function well for me, but to me that's minor when I look at the quality of my photos. Also, the extreme closeups can be difficult to focus. After 1-1/2 years, I still get about 3 hours of continuous camera time on a full charge. Many of my prints are now framed, matted and proudly on display in my home. I've even done a 24x36 print for my daughter that is fantastic! The ONLY way I'll give up my camera is when I eventually graduate to a digital SLR!

A superior Camera (Joseph — 08/14/2006)

Ignore anyone here who says it takes fuzzy photos or quarrels over it's photographic quality, because this is an amazing camera! It's ideal for the beginner or advanced user, with amazing results from pictures taken on auto to detailed shots taken on long expososures, multiple pictures and video recording better than most other digital cameras. The lens quality brings a clarity to photos that has amazed me and the digital viewfinder is so useful in bright conditions. Be it long range or macro, I've always achieved incredible results with this camera- Thankyou Kodak!

Great mid range digital camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I brought this camera to take overseas with me in the desert.
Produces good performance photo, taking good pic with more control, friendly used camera
Super easy to use.It has 16 pre-programmed settings.
It has problems with extreme closeups.
Indoor shots and low light shots hard to get good results, but it's still possible.

Overall, I would recommend the Kodak EasyShare Z7590 to anyone that wants SLR results in a
non-SLR digital camera.

Great Camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

this is a great camera for the price you pay. Great pictures, Easy to learn controls, the list goes on and on. Requires a high capacity SD card though

BRAVO! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

An inexpensive expandible camera! Tons of settings (still learning all the options) I bought filters, and a 2x zoom. Am AMAZED at the quality! Sound not too bad on video either. The color is just breathtaking. I have had a few photos published and cannot wait to get out this spring with this beauty of a camera!! Easy to use! Software could be better. Wish it had an editor in it.

I love it (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I received this camera as a christmas gift. I researched the net and must say it is the best for the money. There are other cameras out there who offer teh same or less for more money. The picture quality is fantastic. It not only gives you the quick picture taking option that most would use but also a way for people who know a bit about fotagraphy to adjust the settings for what they want to do. It is easy to learn and does a good job. I only wish it would come with an MMC/SD card but the internal memory is good for about 20 pictures depending at what picture quality setting you have.

Great Camera ——— I love it

Fuzzy Pictures (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I have had this camera for about 1 month now and I hate it! My pictures are always blurry and never are they clear. Marginal at best. I will not reccommend this camera to anyone.

it is a steal deal (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

though i have owned it since less than a week - i had researched for more than a month or so - i could not believe when i reviewed this one that at $240-$275 you can get 10x - truely it is a steal deal...

It has to be used with patience and i will term that is the only lekuna... but once you become spousy with the camera you know exactly when to click... the zoom works like magic - take a picture of an object 30-40 feet away from a standard 3x-4dx camera available at almost the same price and with this one and download it on your pc - you will know what i am talking about...

Costco has it for $239 right now - grab one before it runs out...

enjoy...

Nice Camera, Terrible Software (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I really like the camera, but had problems with the software. I installed the easy share software that came with the camera. It was a total disaster. It kept trying to use the driver for my old camera. I deleted that driver and it still didn't work. I finally removed all of the easyshare software that Kodak packed with the camera and now it acts just like other USB devices and I haven't had problems since.

Not Good (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Ghosting view finder, blurry photo's, photo's over exposed. Don't like it been sent back for repair. Sub standard to other camera's I have used, my DX 6490 was better, but it had to go back for repair to and was replaced with the Z7590.

Messy software (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I own Minolta SLR and Fuji Finepix digital. But was attracted to Z7590 because of the 10x. Early days yet. But I had real problem with the software. Help is NO HELP. I had difficulty even to know the version of the software supplied (Ultimately I found it written on the CD supplied Ver 5.0). It talks of Albums and I still do not know how to import it from the web site. While trying to do this I inadvertantly updated with with Ver 4. The program locked up. I desperately contacted Kodak and got a solution after a 4 day wait. Now I find that it does not allow files from other digital camera to be down-loaded. This software is not soft on the users.

Thank Goodness for Kodak! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I had been a 35mm SLR buff as a teenager and young adult. I owned a Fujica fully manual 35mm camera and 55mm lens. Then life came along and I got busy so it had been 20 years when I pulled out the trusty old Fuji and it was frozen. An estimate to clean and fix was in the $300 range.

I did some on line research and reluctantly bought the Kodak Z7590. But now my tune has changed.

This camera is IDEAL for any old SLR buffs who aren't quite ready to make a major investment in a digital camera, but who will eventually. The Z7590 camera has many great features including a fully manual mode which hearkens back to the days of hand held light meters and hanging out in dark rooms.

Many of the other featuresand modes give the user "partial" control over the settings. The AUTO mode makes for great point and shoot images. The SPORT mode grabs moving objects. The SCN mode gives a wide variety of presets for many different conditions and the presets are quite useful.

In two short months I've gone from digital novice to relative expert on this camera and it's uses.

And for the price, the features and lens cannot be beat. As an older guy who has some trouble with gadgetry, this camera is very user friendly!

Nice peace of equipment (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Well this is propably 4th digital camera that I owned. I got used to after few years to using olympus and lough at people that would use anything else especially KODAK product. This discrimination was caused due to a simple fact. Before I purchased my first digital camera my g/f father showed me his kodak and the quality was really bad. So since than I been using Olympus. Till my new g/f showed me her kodak. Even though olympus and kodak make good quality pictures the main adventage of KODAK is its colors pure and beautiful. 5 months later I bought my first Kodak z7590 totaly love it is a nice peace of equipment worth every penny didn't have time to print any of my pics but i took plany of pics and few movies love it. I think that for now I will be using only Kodak product its funny. Thanks hun for showing me Kodak I would be hurt with out it.

Average (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

My camera has ghosting in the view finder. Camera could have a stabilizer to help with low light shots, LCD & View finder don't show what the photo's going to be like before you take it.

Im happy ! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Have an olympus 3020 which is a great camera for a 3.2 mp. This camera takes better, brighter more detailed pictures. Yes I have seen better pics in other cameras but when I think that I got this one for the same price as the Olympus its a steal

Good Qual. mages most modes. Careful of the software! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I found Kodak's 7590 to be a bargain for what you'll get. I am happily expecting to use mine for a couple years 'til more resolution /reliability arrives. The manual is written for an entry level photographer. It skips over or touched lightly on techical info that an advanced amature will be looking for. I had to call Rochester several times to find out some simple stuff that should have been in the manual. They were always helpful.This camera seems targeted for the advanced amature, with its multitude of features —too bad the manual is not up to the camera. The software is, like the manual, hard to do anything with. It's designed for simply buying prints from Kodak. Be prepared to learn new meanings for some of the standard English language words while Kodak teaches you their hard and soft ware using their word definitions. I lost some irreplaceable important images befor I learned not to try too much on my own I now do just do what Kodak says to do. I've finally removed the "Easy Share" program from my comptor and edit my stuff using Microsoft's photo image software. If you already have digital images and are moving up to a 7590, think it over befor investing time in trying to use Kodak's "Easy Share" for anything beyond just buying prints from Kodak,.
Accessory Polarizing filter, -bough on line from Kodak came in needing reapir which they did. Exposure accomodation with the polariing filter is poor to non existant. I gave up using it.
Except as noted above, I recommend the camera for advanced amatures and for beginners.

Love the features for the price! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This camera is my first digital. It's great if you just want to take basic pictures, but the manual controls are so easy! I love taking 'difficult' shots because I can instantly see how they turned out and perfect the shot. Love it!

waste of glass. (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I was very very displeased with this camera. ANY kind of manual overides on the camera makes the meter off. White balance is off by a touch, screen refresh is slow. The screen is grainy, and their paper-thin sensor lacks any kind of detail. It does have a good lense just like sony, canon, nikon, casio, pentax, or minolta. But a good lense is useless if the processor can't even keep up

What everyone been waiting for (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

This is the camera every parent should own. I have owned several cameras but none as simple as this one. With the telephoto lens you feel as if your on the field taking the picture. The easy share printer 3 is amazing the way it prints and the software for the computer is so simple to use. I can not say enough good things about the Z7590 package I bought.

Excellent choice for trips and all occasions (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

The Z7590 proved to be very easy to use. I really like its size and weight which makes it easy to carry on hikes etc. I took over 100 pictures in Rocky Mountain National Park and feel like I got some post card quality pictures of the mountains and lakes. Every picture had great clarity, focus and color. Couldn't have done without the 10X zoom. Enjoy the availability of the printing dock in order to have printed pictures right away - feel like it was worth the extra costs. I love the camera and feel like I made the right choice.

Excellent for advanced amateurs or semi-professionals (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

reside in mainland Europe. I bought KODAK EasyShare Z7590 in June 2005. I have used a Canon AE-1 program with normal and telephoto 27-105mm lenses for the last 25 years. I have also used a digital HP C-20 1Mpxl. since 1999. I used to shoot on ASA100, 400 Kodak and Agpha films and on ASA60, 100 Agpha & Kodak slides. I mainly shoot portraits, landscape, close-ups. I consider myself an advanced amateur.

I have been waiting for digital SLRs to become cheaper as I did not want to reconsile my photo taking. I used HP C-20 for computer images only and therefore I carried both the Canon and the HP with me on trips.

What I liked in Kodak z7590 when I first read the specifications was its 10x zoom lense and its full auto and manual buttons. Theoretically it can not focus manually, however the auto focus motor along with the use of the zoom button have the same effect. But, tell me really, how many times have you focused manually with success on a multi-leaf flower. Kodak z7590 focused succesfully every single time with autofocus and macro mode enabled on a number of flowers in sunlight and the shade. I did not even have to change the focus area, which you can do on Kodak z7590.

The histogram is an added plus as you can see and adjust the exposure before hand and the battery that lasts for more than 2,5 hours with full use of the LCD is great. The big 2,2 inches (56 cm) LCD screen was my assistant in taking pictures under the harsh light of southern mediterranean as it is a real bright screen and can been easilly seen in a sunny day.

The 16 auto modes for almost any occasion will help you take nice photos the moment you want to. I have used them heavilly and I rely on them fully. On the other hand change to any of the semi-automatic modes where you can adjust one of the parameters or to the fully manual or the custom mode and dial and save your own parameters for difiicult or peculiar situations. I repeat, although you can not focus manually in the old fashion with Kodak Easyshare Z7590, you actually do not need it.

In the 20 days I owe and use the camera I have taken more than 150 pictures and in only 4 cases I had to refocus. I shot a variety of pictures: portraits, flowers, landscapes througout the day and night with or without the flash. If you shoot close-ups you'll also appreciate an extra connection for an external flash as in some close-up cases of low light the big lense may obstruct the light from reaching the bottom of the image.

For successful everyday picture taking use the 16 auto modes and you'll have no failures. However, for the semi-automatic and the manual modes and especially if you are not familiar with the latest photo digital technology, I suggest you read the Kodak Easyshare Z7590 manual from cover to cover. It is included in printed and electronic form in the package in a number of languages.

The only extra I bought was a 256Mb SD memory card (28 Mb of internal memory are available for images but you need a card for more than 10-15 pictures) and a spare baterry (20-35 Euros, depending on the model) but you can get an extra wide lense for fish-eye photos. I did not buy their dock and/or ptinter.

I used though the free Kodak Easyshare software included on CD-ROM (I actually updated it from their site to version 5 and I suggest you do it as you can even manipulate the Qtime videos you shoot with Kodak Easyshare Z7590). Using the Kodak Easyshare software I printed 4 photos on an A4 page, 2 photos on an A4 page pictures and full A4 photos on an HP inkjeet 940c (600x600 PhotoReIII).

Well, it was very difficult to tell the difference between photos of similar themes I had taken with my analog Canon AE-1 and the photos I took with Kodak Easyshare Z7590. I like bright colors and contrast and this is how Kodak Easyshare Z7590 delivers the initial images. However, if your are for more pale colors and smoother color-wise images, the free Kodak Easyshare software will allow you to manipulate images to your taste in a very easy way.

Kodak Easyshare Z7590 is recommnded with no hesitation for advanced amateurs or those who wish to become advanced amateurs and those professionals who want a second easy to use for all occasions digital camera.

Love it! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

The EASYSHARE Z7590 Zoom Digital Camera is a very user friendly camera that takes professional quality pictures. The software and download was quick and painless. Battery life is excellent. I recommend getting at least a 125mb card to help with the limited internal memory. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Kodak Z7590 (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

WOW, now I can finally take quality pictures without wasting time. Color, B&W, video and it all looks like I knew what I was doing. Simple hookups for your TV and easy computer transfer. Oh, and don't forget the EasyShare printer, it's absolutely fantastic for the average joe.
