  2. Just received my new Kodak DX 7630 today. It was $301 including shipping. 6.1 megapixals. Seems like a better buy than the one you posted. I've read a few reviews on the Kodak and they were good. That's why I decided to buy it. Looking forward to learning how to use it. Only other camera I have is an old Canon AT-1 . I'm new and green when it comes to the digitals. Its going to be fun learning though !!;c

    the main selling point of the kyocera is the RTUNE technology that gives it a really fast frame rate.

    I'm gonna have to try it side by side with a cannon or fuji to be sure.

    My wife got me one of these for Christmas last year so I have used it quite a bit.
    It has good points and not so good points.

    Good points:
    Compact easy to carry and use
    Starts up quick and is ready to go
    Unique design makes it fun and attractive
    Has optical zoom
    Image quality is very good
    In movie mode, you record as long as your memory holds out
    Has multiple frame advance feature
    Has exposure compensation
    Seems durable, I've dropped it a couple of times. No effect

    Not so good points:
    Battery runs down fairly quickly. Small camera, small battery
    Flash is tiny and underpowered. Again small camera, small flash
    Best used outside in relatively bright light
    May cause those with big hands to fumble a bit

    Conclusion:
    I like mine quite a bit. On a 1 to 5 scale with 5 being the best I'd rate it a solid 4.
    But then again it's not my only digital camera. If I was going to Europe on a two week vacation, I might not make this my go-to camera.
    For my purposes, it's a fun, stick in a pocket camera, that you can always have with you. Not a heavy duty workhorse.

    Hope this helps.

    Well I'm not so sure in terms of time. I've found that it's more like use. It seems to last (or sometimes not last) through one event.
    Let's say you are at a party or outdoor cookout and you want to take pics and movies throughout. The battery will often crap out on you sooner then you would like.
