Some years ago I came across this camera on this website, and having read the reviews, especially by John Caylor below, I ventured out and eBayed me one when it came up. Many years later, and tens of thousands of photos later, this and the DCS760 are all that I use, digital camera wise. I have three bodies, two 760s and one 720x, and have literally recovered my meager investment back tens of times already, and nary a glitch in all three camera bodies since I had them, used, eBayed. That's ...

For those of you who are journalists and magazine photographers if you don't own the DCS720X you're missing out on the best camera system to ever come down from Nikon and Kodak. Get the best Nikon lenses they are worth the money and the anti-alias filters are a must. Kodak did a lousy job promoting the camera because it cost them big bucks to make it and the sales profit margins were slim compared to the latest line of plastic digital cameras. I've been shooting professionally for over 30 ...

I can't believ how this camera has been overlooked by DPR (& poorly marketed by Kodak), thhis is THE best sports camera out there. I easily get good images up to ISO 4800! And if I have to (sometimes it means getting a somewhat noisy image vs. getting no image) use all 6400 and beyond. It also has a built-in microphone to allow annotation (great for us League action shooters). My only disappointments are the Image Quality could be a bit better and they have discontinued the camera. ...

I picked up one of these on Ebay for the bargain price of $1800.00. It was new from Kodak. I've shot with Canon up until now and have not looked back. The speed of this camera is amazing and I'm still dazed by the low light photos that I have taken. Focus speed is second to none and exposure is dead on most of the time. If the WB or exposure needs adjustment it's easy with the Kodak Photo Desk. This is going to be my main camera for quite a while. Problems: Not really a problem, but a ...

I never expected to be able to afford this camera. My newspaper provides me with a Nikon D1H. When Kodak had their "fire sale" last month, I had to pick up the 720x. So far, it has not left me wanting. I love the size, handling, and build quality. Image quality is amazing - images are clean at ISOs as high as 3200, and are absolutely noise-free at 400. The 720x is an absolute joy to use. Problems: Occasional moire in fine detail; often controllable with the PhotoDesk filter.

While only 2mp the quality of the images is outstanding. I have gone to 11x14 and the images are very good. Great sports and PJ camera.
