Geek Corner
Information for the digital photographer

By Robert Hanashiro

The new Kodak DCS620, based on the Nikon F-5, made an inauspicious debut at the Super Bowl last Sunday in Miami. Shooters from the Denver Post, the Rocky Mountain News, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and AP all were given the opportunity to use it.

Initial reports have been good, with some reservations on the size of the body and the image area of the viewfinder.

Quality and speed match the year-old DCS520 (based on the Canon EOS1 body). For more details on specific features of the DCS620, please go to Rob Galbraith's DigiNews web page at: http://www.robgalbraith.com/diginews/index2.html

(Note: advice to the shooters complaining about the bad color they got during the Super Bowl: do NOT use the camera on "auto" white balance as the Kodak reps told you. Under consistent lighting conditions like a night football game, a pre-set or custom white balance is best.)

Terry Schmitt has asked us to post a notice to those using the DCS520 who have broken one the built-in anti-aliasing filters. Terry is trying to do an informal survey to find out how and where your filters cracked.

If you've broken one of these $900 filters, email Terry at: TORCHFOTO@aol.com
