Kodak DCS Pro SLR/c Review

June 2004 | By Phil Askey


Review based on a production DCS Pro SLR/c, Firmware Version 5.0.1

On February 12th 2004 Kodak announced the new DCS Pro SLR/n, an improved version of the 14n. Improvements included a redesigned sensor, a new type of filter over the sensor surface, new analog and digital boards and new software features. Just over one month later at CeBIT Kodak announced the SLR/c a new digital SLR with the heart of the SLR/n but in a new body and with a Canon lens mount. This is Kodak's first Canon mount digital SLR since 1998's DCS 560.

Anyone who has seen the Sigma SA9 / SD9 / SD10 should instantly recognize the shape of the top of the camera and the controls, the rest of the body is obviously custom made for Kodak and to be honest this isn't the prettiest or most ergonomically friendly camera, but then neither is the SLR/n (or was the 14n).

The SLR/c becomes the highest pixel count Canon mount digital SLR, it has a full 35mm frame (no crop factor) CMOS sensor which has 14 million photosites (compared to the next highest, Canon's EOS-1Ds with 11 million photosites).

If you're new to digital photography you may wish to read the Digital Photography Glossary before diving into this article (it may help you understand some of the terms used).

Conclusion / Recommendation / Ratings are based on the opinion of the reviewer, you should read the ENTIRE review before coming to your own conclusions.
