User Score:

Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These pictures were taken indoors using reflected natural light


this is the full frame at minimum ISO.


Even at 80 ISO there is some sign of image noise.


Not much difference at 100 ISO.


Noise is more noticeable at 200 ISO.


Noise reduction has blurred detail at 400 ISO.


Image quality is pretty poor at 800 ISO.


Image quality is even worse at the maximum 1000 ISO.


This is the full frame at 1000 ISO.

Poor Cliff. You, like me, must really dread the advent of yet another Kodak compact review! Noise, 'painterly'(compression) artefacts and severe CA are the hallmarks of a good 21st century Kodak digital, doncha know.

Still, if it's got the name Kodak on it, it must be good, innit. :-/

I wouldn't call the CA in the pics 'severe', Raffles and the peeps who'll buy this camera won't be into pixel peeping and will be happy with their 6 X 4 kiosk prints where the defects you mention will not be noticeable.

Just like the Z915, the M530 will most likely sell like hot cakes and if I didn't own the DX6490 and DX7590, I certainly wouldn't kick it out of bed! IMO it's great value.
