Kodak DC4800 Digital Camera Review

Digital cameras seems to advance in leaps and bounds every few months. One such digital camera to makes itself known is the Kodak DC4800. At 3.3 megapixels it can produce digital images of sterling quality - while hungrily gobbling up variable megs of compact flash storage space.

At 3.3 megapixels the 32MB of removable storage that comes with the DC4800 can get burned up rather quickly. In our evaluation tests we were lucky to also have a spare 96MB of compact flash. One of the first things we can tell you about taking digital pictures is that when it comes to the web, the lowest resolution setting on the camera (1080x720) is more than sufficient. But for the individuals out there who need to work with really high resolution imagery, the camera can out put 3.1 MB 2160 x 1440pixel pictures which will translate into very decent prints of the 8" x 10" or 11" x 14" size.
