A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

----

Here's usual comparison test shot for overall detail. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.

----

Very poor detail quality, plus horrible image compression.

----

At least the lens doesn't produce much wide-angle distortion.

----

This corner crop shows poor edge sharpness and chromatic aberration, as well as burned out highlights from over-exposure.

I have bought this camera, and really makes me remember the poor quality of the old but famous Sony MAVICA (I had one before, I think it was the MVC-FD73)...there´s something I still can´t understand about the KODAK C743...if having 7.3 megapixels, then why the pics have so low quality?





I always thought a "more-than-5-megapix" camera should have, at least, good quality shots...but this broke my classic way of thinking...





Anyone can explain, please, what´s the point (the main bad point) in this camera, that makes it´s shots so bad?...I read all but, as a non-expert in the world of digital cameras, cna´t still get it.





thank you a lot!

It's no good having even 7 megapixels, baxter if the lens or the other vitals are not up to snuff. I can't see Kodak making specially bad sensors to go in their cheaper cameras so in this case I suspect the lens is simply built down to a price and therefore responsible for the inferior image. If this camera were cheaper, it would be fine for those who want 6X4 prints and the ultimate simplicity of operation. In other words a "soccer mom's" camera!





Have a look at the images from a Kodak DX6490 which has FOUR megapixels and you'll see what I'm getting at.
