Dave Etchells from Imaging-Resource has just dropped me a note to let me know he's posted his lengthy review of Kodak's fourteen megapixel digital SLR, the DCS-14n. Note that his review is based on a pre-production camera. About this camera Dave says "It delivers excellent color, and an unusually flexible post-exposure workflow, thanks to the capabilities of Kodak's DCR "raw" file format. Unfortunately, it also has a number of limitations, many of which appear to stem from overly high noise levels in the sensor itself. No matter how much tweaking Kodak may do with their image processing algorithms, they're really at the mercy of their sensor supplier to deliver chips with better noise performance.".
Phil: note that we are still waiting for a production DCS-14n, our pre-production unit isn't suitable for a full range of our review tests.
