There is a review of PhotokinaÂ in News.com.Â It points out:
Â Kodak cameras include some bells-and-whistles designed to help newcomers used to pointing and shooting learn about manual controls. But the overall design seems to acknowledge that long-term consumer loyalty may come down to the quality of a photo the camera can produce in automatic mode, and how easy it is to do stuff with the photo–whether e-mailing it, uploading it to the Web or printing it and sending it to the grandparents.
I recently bought Casio’s EXILIM Z1000 for less than $400.Â It has 10.1 Mega pixels and is loaded with interesting electronic features.Â I love the best shot settings and the ability to zoom into a picture — where a little window in a window shows where I am.Â A great navigation help.
I think, all these cameras are really making photography a powerful experiential documentation media.
And yes, the camera takes very high quality MPEG4 movies.Â So I really don’t need any video camera.Â I replaced my old Casio S500 with this one.Â This is a bit bigger form factor, but not bad.
