Hi, I would really appreciate it if the very useful Kodak rep. lurking
in this group could let me know exactly what are the differences between
those 2 models.

Thank you very much in advance, Mr. Baird!!!! I really hope you could
answer this question.

Greetings Pixel,

No lurking for me, Pixel, I am here to help you. You can also use my email
address to get more help if you like.

Both cameras are quite similar in features, but the Z7590 does have some
improvements below are the three most apparent.

1.) Z7590 uses the new, 26-pin docking connector that all 2005 EasyShare
digital cameras models are using. This is the ' Image Link ' connector that
not only allows battery recharging and direct printing with a Kodak
EasyShare printer dock series 3 and printer dock plus series 3, but will
also be utilized by our Image Link partner digital camera manufacturers so
that you can dock their Image Link cameras to Kodak pd series 3 and pd+
series 3 to make prints.

2.) Z7590 uses the 4-pin USB mini-b connector for USB cable connection to a
PC or Mac - this is the same as the DX7590. Z7590 uses a new 8-pin
connector for the A/V out connector. This is different than the DX7590 but
the same as most other 2005 EasyShare models. Most of the other 2005
EasyShare models use the 8-pin connector for both A/V out and USB
functionality.

3.) Z7590 will display an active histogram on the LCD and EVF in capture
modes. This is a small, semi-transparent histogram positioned below display
center on the left side that shows the brightness distribution of the image.
This will allow users to determine whether a particular scene contains the
full range of brightness or not and it will allow them to see the effect
that camera setting changes will have on the image. Kodak does not provide
any support as far as teaching users how to evaluate the histogram
information. It's provided as a convenience for photographers that may be
familiar with image histograms and it can be a learning tool for users
wanting to learn more about how their camera perceives the scene.

I'm looking that Sony V3 and the Kodak dx7590. I think I'm leaning towards
the DX7590. However, the one major downside to the Kokak camera is the
slow buffer. Although the shot to shot time is around 2.3 seconds, it
takes a lot longer for the picture to be written to the SD card and cleared
from the buffer. As a result, if you fill the buffer (5-8 shots?), you
could have to wait as long as 25 seconds before you can take another
picture.

Does the Kodak Z740 or Z7590 improve on the performance of the buffer?

Thank you

Greetings Andrew,

No, the Z7590 and the DX7590 have the same 'buffer' so that is not changed.
It does include a Histogram which is a pretty nice feature. It also has
external flash synch which is a big advantage adds a lot of range to the
camera. There is a change in that feature from the DX6490 to the DX7590 so
improvements were added in the 7590 version. I guess that issue is dependent
on the type of shooting you will be doing. What requires the speed? The
camera is pretty fast for its price range.

In first burst mode the camera can do 5 fps
In last burst mode the camera can do 30 fps and save the last four.

The click to capture is .2 seconds with preview on and 1.6 shot to shot. The
actual shot to shot is 1.8 with preview on.

Talk to you soon, Andrew,

Greetings Andrew,

No, the Z7590 is the better of the two cameras. Actually, the shot to shot
time is posted on the Kodak web site for this camera. Check the details at:

Talk to you soon Andrew, let me know if there are questions.

Thank you for the information.

I have another question for you. Aside from the 2.2" LCD and the
histogram, are there any other differences between the Z7590 and Z740?


Thank you

Greetings Andrew,

Yes, the 740 does not feature a flash synch option (allows you to connect an
external flash) which to me is a big difference. If you go to the Kodak
website and open two browser windows, you can call up the spec sheets on
both cameras. You can then compare the spec list side by side to get a full
review of what each camera offers. The 740 is a great camera and I am sure
you would enjoy it. For me, however, I like the external flash feature and
so would go that way if it were my choice.

Talk to you soon,

Ron Baird

Does anybody know when in April the rest of the Kodak Z-series cameras will
be coming out - the Z7590 in particular?


Thank you

? I thought it was June. But then I don't see it as a great improvement
over the DX model.

That's what I originally thought as well. However, the Kodak website says
"available in April".

Is that really 30 fps, or should it be the last four are saved in
bursts of up to 30 frames? If really 30 fps, then why would first
burst mode only be able to do 5 fps? That's really impressive if it
actually is 30 fps.

This is my first post here. I had the same question with regards to the
comparison of the DX7590 and Z7590 as well as the Z740. I was even more
confused when I shopped a retail store and found the Z740 cheaper than
the DX7590 even though the DX7590 is a much older camera. The clerk at
the store told me the main difference was that the DX7590 made a louder
sound like Star Trek than the newer model. She then recanted when she
discovered you could set the sound/modes on the camera. Where do they
get these kids. This website has been a god-send. Ok - on to my
question...

The 3 items that Ron Baird pointed out as differences between the Z7590
and DX7590 are not all that important to me. I love to take photos but
am not serious enough to want/need a separate flash etc. The USB/a/v
port 8 vs. 4 - dont know how that impacts me. However, I am interested
in the wireless technology and ability to print from the camera
wirelessly. I understand that the new EasyShareOne will be able to
print from the camera and you will be able to email from the camera. I
also understand that the DX7590 and Z7590 use different printer and
camera docks.

1. Will I ever be able to print wirelessly with the Z7590?
2. What are the main differences between the 6000 series dock and the
printer dock series 3?
3. The DX7590 received "average picture" reviews by cnet. Is there any
differences with the Z7590 that improved the overall quality of the
picture?
4. How does the DX7590 or the Z7590 compare to the Panasonic DMC-FZ20?
I saw a comparison somewhere where the photos at close range were a lot
better with the Panasonic. That being said, I love the ease of use with
the Kodak that I experienced at a retail store. I felt like it is very
easy to learn.

Greetings GoSox,

You can check the features of the cameras and the printers on the Kodak
site. Note that none of the cameras outside the EasyShare One features a
wireless connect option. You can use the Printer Dock Plus if you like to
print your pictures remotely, however, if you choose. The Printer Dock Plus
is the only model with the convenience of wireless photography. Kodak's
wireless accessories are designed to work with select KODAK EASYSHARE
Digital Cameras and Printer Docks. If you have a Printer Dock Plus, just set
your camera on it and you can print wirelessly. There is a remote control
offered to run this printer dock which is a nice feature. If your only
interest is in remote printing, etc. then take a look at the EasyShare One
and this printer. You can print from anywhere in the proximity of your
printer and camera, i.e. your house. You could also send images from the
camera to an online service or to your computer. You can also email your
pictures remotely.

If you are you going to use the Z series camera, then you would only be able
to activate the printer remotely. The only camera out currently that can
send images to the printer etc. is the EasyShare One.

The advantage of the new type of USB connection is that is allows connection
with current technology and other devices that may come down the road later.
It is a newer improved type of connection.

If you do not want the flash option (it really is a valuable feature) then
the Z740 may be the camera for you. The Printer Dock Plus has an accessory
options for an adapter that will enable the use of the Z740 and Z7590 with
that dock. Actually, the accessory kit for the dock enables KODAK EASYSHARE
Printer Dock Plus, Printer Dock, Printer Dock 6000 and Camera Dock 6000 to
be compatible with the following KODAK EASYSHARE Digital Cameras:

EASYSHARE-ONE
C Series
V Series
Z Series
Picture Viewer
LS755 (available in select countries)


Talk to you soon, GoSox,

Let me know if you need more detail.
