Kodak EASYSHARE DX7590
- Sharp 5 megapixel image detail, 10X optical zoom
- Shaky at maximum zoom, slow buffer times
An easy-to-use camera that delivers versatile and adaptable functionality and performance.
Price$ 699.00 (AUD)
Kodak's EASYSHARE DX7590 offers great flexibility thanks to its 10X Schneider Kreuznach (35mm equivalent 38mm to 380mm) zoom lens, which lets the user cope with pretty much anything they'll come up against.
At maximum zoom, camera shake becomes an issue, so when planning to do lots of work at that end, a tripod would be handy. The 5 megapixel camera also comes equipped with a healthy range of photographic modes, including a custom mode for saving frequently used settings. The combination of the lens, sensor and Kodak's Colour Science Image Processing chip results in very good photos--images taken at full zoom showed sharp detail, while colour fidelity was good.
The DX7590 comes with the standard camera dock for transferring images to the PC and charging the lithium ion battery. For users who want to take a step up, the EasyShare Printer Dock Plus is a worthwhile investment. The Printer Dock Plus combines the image transfer and battery-charging features of the camera dock with a small dye-sub printer that turns out great 4" x 6" prints. It is PictBridge-compatible, so any PictBridge-capable camera can be plugged in.

GGG Evaluation Team
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
