Advantages: Internal Memory card, docking station, Video capture
Disadvantages: Bulky , Bad photo quality, No Zoom on Close up mode
Because of my job I require a Digital Camera that can take close up pictures of small objects. Before buying this Kodak model I had owned another Cheaper Kodak model (£170.00) which did not do what I required or took take decent pictures. I put this down to the fact it was a cheap model.
After saving up some cash I had £300.00 to buy a new camera with. Upto now I had using two Fuji film cameras off friends one model which cost £150.00 and one that cost £200.00, both of these cameras did what I needed and produced some stunning pictures.
Since I had £300.00 in my pocket and both these cameras where cheaper I was positive that new £300 camera would be brilliant.
So went to my nearest Curries for a gander at new cameras.
At curries the majority of the Cameras where Kodak and there where no Fuji film cameras. I called over one of the staff and asked "whats the best camera I can get for £300 that will take pictures of small objects". I was then told that the Kodak DX6300 was the best camera with in my price range.
I didn't like the look of the camera as it looked very bulky but it did have an internal memory card and a docking station which interested me as I am always on the move. It also did 2.2 Mega pixels which was a lot better then any of the Fuji film models I had used so I presumed this would be better for the photos I required.
Once I got my new purchase I decided to take it for a test run and it failed. When on close up mode it had no zoom unlike the cheaper Fuji film cameras. They photos where blurry and very unprofessional.
I also tried it for taking photos of friends and everyday things and yet again the quality of photos where poor compared to a Fuji film. Since then I have swapped my £300 Kodak camera for a cheaper Fuji film camera and I am now getting the quality of photo that I require.
