Some pics from Kodak DC290
3

I found one of my old 96MB compact flash cards with some pictures I took in 2002. I have to say the Kodak DC290 has some nice color rendition. I still have my DC290 (bought new in 2000 for a whopping $900) and will have to take it out for some photo therapy session sometime.

The glass art work is by Dale Chihuly, an American glass art sculptor.

I thought I'd share some of those pics here.

Enjoy!

Re: Some pics from Kodak DC290

I remember reading from many DC290 users back in the day, how pleased they were with the camera. And there is no wonder, it predates the "Kodak Color Science" but they were probably on to that before the term was featured. Very nice color and about as sharp a lens as you could ask for back then.

Looking at some of the glass pieces, It's a wonder some didn't break getting them into the garden.

Yeah, agreed. When the DC290 was released it was a "top of the line" consumer product. From what I recall most reviews at the time mention impressive color accuracy and good low noise images. Also the ability to have raw (tiff) + jpeg was a welcome option.

I think Dale Chihuly was doing national shows at the time, I would guess the hired crew were very careful moving and setting up his pieces.

Here's an article from American Photo (2000) about the DC290. Interesting read.

Cool images, the only thing I can say about them is the flash from the 290 is extremely harsh, same with my 220.  Nature of the beast.
