Product Description

The DC4800 is Kodak's first 3-megapixel consumer digital camera. In terms of design, it's something of a departure from Kodak's earlier digital models and more of a return to the look and feel of a traditional film camera. In its default setting, the camera is as easy to use as a point-and-shoot, but numerous manual controls are available for the more advanced user.

Like most other 3-megapixel cameras, the Kodak features a 3x optical zoom lens plus a 2x digital zoom. Images are stored as JPEG or TIFF files on standard Type I CompactFlash cards, and the camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and AC adapter (included). USB output makes image transfers quick, and a video-out plug lets you view your images on your TV. The 4800 has several unusual features that help to set it apart from the rest of the 3-megapixel pack. For example, Kodak has included dedicated controls on the top of the camera to adjust the aperture and exposure compensation, rather than forcing users to wade through a sea of menus to access these frequently used settings. In addition, the camera offers better-than-usual control of white balance and color saturation.

The camera ships with a neck strap, lens cap, 16 MB CompactFlash card, lithium-ion rechargeable battery, AC adapter, USB cable, video cable, user's guide, and software CD. Kodak includes a 1-year warranty.

Customer Reviews

I am shocked how well my pictures come out in natural light without using the flash.
I have had excellent results with picture quality and my results continue to improve as I learn to use all of the camera's features.
Pamela J. Wiseman
For the general digital camera user, the Kodak DC4800 camera is one of the best buys around.

I've read several reviews of the Kodak DC4800 and agree with most of the positive reviews and very little of the negative ones...
Now, prospective wise, this is my very first digital camera so I can offer my opinion with no previous digital camera experience. I have used several upper high end 35mm cameras in my life and do know a little more than your average shooter; with that in mind, I will continue with my review.
First of all, I got much more than I actually expected. All of my enlargments and prints have been done on my HP Deskjet 970CXI printer with Kodak Glossy Inkjet 45 pound paper...some were enlarged and printed from the lowest megapixel level (.8) and others were done with the highest megapixel (3.1) The results have been much better than expected...the color was terrific and the detail was excellent.
The only pictures I took which I considered below excellent quality were, for the most part, due to my mistakes regarding settings, movement when shooting in low light and perhaps greater expectations from the flash than you would normally get with a good 35mm, a couple of the reviews have mentioned that the flash and focus when taking pictures inside or with low light were far below the quality they were expecting. They may well have a point, however, I attributed these lower quality shots more to my inexperience with the camera and wrong settings than I actually was willing to blame on the camera....when I became more familiar with the limits of the camera, I was able to overcome 95 % of my original poorer quality other words, when I actually understood the limitations of the camera, I was able to take much better photos with clearly focused shots and excellent color...

This is Kodak's entry into the 3 megapixel market (and some reports indicate that this is the first of Kodak's digital cameras to be designed by Kodak Japan), and considering that Kodak did so well at 2MP with the DC280, one expects a formidable digital camera, and gets it, for the most part. This is my second Kodak digital camera and I've continued to purchase Kodak because with digital cameras the camera is also the film and no one knows how to make film quite like Kodak, a la Kodachrome. The previous DC280 is a point and shoot camera only, and while the DC4800 offers manual control of many functions, it still basicaslly a point and shoot camera - for instance, with the DC4800 no control of focus is possible, and if you want to change shutter speed you have to go through several levels of menu (no less than 10 button presses to get to the shutter speed menu and then as much as another 12 to choose the speed). Hopefully, as the digital era progresses digital cameras will become more like the SLRs of old with manual control of every function and all the controls on the body of the camera, rather then buried deep in menus. (I understand Olympus is about to release its E10 which is like a digital SLR; however the price will be about $2000.)
That given, lets examine the Kodak DC4800.
The positives -
For me, after the 3MP resolution and the 3X lens, what impresses me most about the DC4800 is the high quality, high contrast, high resolution, high brightness backpanel LCD, which is now truly useful, unlike that on the DC280. The backpanel controls have also been improved somewhat with a 4 axis "joy" button.

After reading some of the negative reveiws, I felt I had to respond. Having used and tried many digital cameras including the Canon 3030 and Nikon 990, I can tell you that for the price you cannot buy a better camera. The problems with focusing that people complain about is that they probably did not have the focus set properly. There is a macro and infinity setting that has to be set correctly. I know because I had that problem at first but it was my fault. I use the camera in the OR all the time and NEVER have a problem with the focus. As far as the batteries, Kodak did it right. I can easily take 40 high quality pictures using the LED without recharging and the batteries are less than half the weight of 4 AA batteries. The Canon doesn't even include rechargeable batteries for $999. The controls are so user friendly that I can show the nurses how to take great pictures for me in 2 minutes. Try that with the Canon which is way too confusing or even the bulky Nikon 990. I don't understand the "problem" with the flash - it works well to 10 ft which is all it was meant for. The best part about the flash is that I can take pictures from 1 ft away and not overexpose the picture. All in all, it is a great compact 3 megapixel camera at a great price.

First off--I'm spoiled, photographically: for years I've loved using good 35mm Minolta, Nikons and large format film cameras, mainly as an amateur photographer, but also as a freelance from time to time. When I took the digital plunge, I thought this camera would be more of a supplement to my other cameras. I was wrong--now I usually take the Kodak with me and leave the others behind. In short, this is just a great camera, which I've had for about two months now. It can be a bit complex to set up, and on "Program" the results are predictably just OK, but once you use it like a film camera the results are incredible. The control over many photographic settings--and the way Kodak has translated digital controls into "35mm film" settings(like ISO settings, effective focal lengths and such)--is simply fantastic. It's small enough to take with me when a full-blown 35mm Nikon setup is just too bulky (like when I'm biking); it also produces pictures that rival the 35mm. At first, I thought the indoor flash was a bit weak; you can hook up another set of flashes, however, for serious lighting. More importantly, I also found that when I set the camera properly for flash (fill works well, for instance), and proper ISO settings, that I got much better results. The macro and distance settings are effective as well, though I'm not sure why you need the distance setting with an autofocus camera. Flaws? Only in packaging--I wish that Kodak had included a case and neutral lens filter, but that's a very small complaint.
