CX6445

A $12 find! For some unknown reason DPReview has left this model off of the Kodak list.

The specs: 4MP / 1/2.5" CCD / 33-132mm F2.2-4.8 S-K Lens / 100, 200, 400 ISO / 1.8" LCD @ 134k / Viewfinder with Diopter / Auto-Sports-Portrait-Night Portrait-Landscape-Macro Modes

Not a bad looking camera at all:

Took it around the lake in the evening sun for some spring buds that are popping out. I left the ISO decision to the camera this time, shooting in various modes.

What a little beauty! Nice find. The images are typical Kodak colors which means... great color rendition. It looks pocketable which would be perfect for walking about and grabbing images of your downtown, Wes. Get your shoes on and git!

Wes, great find. Find this thread from the forum dated back to 2004.

Look like CX6445 was the Dell version of DX6440.

Beautiful photos from this oldie. And Schneider lens too? Impressive pocket camera. Chiue, I forgot about Dell branding a Kodak. Can't remember, but did HP partner with Kodak or were they producing their own cameras?

I have some older Fuji's EXR cameras that I just love as they always rendered a really nice jpeg. I have the Z900EXR, F70EXR, F850EXR (not working, got wet), S200EXR (a favorite), and the S-X1 with EXR. The Kodaks are the C190, Z915, and Z950. Sold the Z990 and probably a few others I gave away. And some Pixpro models.

Just for fun, here's a few from both Fuji and Kodak.

Re: CX6445

Thanks for the my Kodak Lesson of the day! I did not know there was a Dell model. So, instead of it being a "market" model it's actually a "specialty" model.

It is the same as the DX6440 except the CX6445 doesn't have P*A*S modes.

Also, ISO Speed setting and Exposure Metering setting are only available in Landscape and Macro modes. Focus Zone setting is only available in Macro mode.

Beautiful color and resolution. Really like the shot of the young woman as well as the Iris and the train.

Re: CX6445

Jim, I have been thinking about getting an EXR model this spring/summer. Your photos (and other shooter's) make me interested. It looks like they start around $30 used so not so bad. That is....if I can take a break from Kodaks! 

You mention the S200EXR as a favorite. Can you tell me what you like more about this one? How the others you mention compare?

Hey Wes, I don't understand all the details on EXR, but it works for me in lower light and rendering more fine detail. The EXR cameras can be dialed in with extra DR too. The S200EXR and the F70 (I'm sure others) use a CCD sensor and it's slightly bigger than even todays small sensors. I've always liked the CCD sensors as they have little grain or artifacts. While the S200EXR's reach is only 436mm/14X optical, the glass is outstanding and will give a sharp image. Combined with twist to zoom and it's a joy to shoot. I need to run now, but you might check out the Fujifilm forum as their is lots of great info there. I also like the F850EXR as it shoot way above a standard p&s. They have the F600/660/800/850 and the F900 being the last one.
