Kodak Professional has today announced that it expects the ship date for the new fourteen megapixel Kodak DCS-14n to slip by approximately two weeks to mid February. Speaking to Jay Kelbley of Kodak Pro he reasons given for this delay are simply "to get image quality where we want it". In addition Kodak Pro has issued two sample images for us to publish and some more on the Kodak Pro website. Bear in mind that these images aren't from a full production camera / firmware, that said I'm impressed with the resolution but a little concerned about the amount of noise reduction going on.

Samples from the Kodak server.

UPDATE: Note that the images originally posted by Kodak were heavy on the noise reduction which has been returned to zero settings in these new samples.
