What Camera to replace Kodak Easy Share dx6490

by Doxiedad06 / December 27, 2009 1:27 AM PST

I've had my Kodak Easy Share dx6490 for almost 5 years now. Over the years I've been pleased with the quality of the photos but it's starting to feel long in the tooth.

The wife and I were thinking about getting a Nikon D5000 but with the economy the way it is a $700 DSLR isn't in the picture right now. I was looking at some of the compact cameras on Cnet and was wondering if they'd be good for mostly inside shots of kids, dogs etc. Now remember the Kodak is by far the best camera I've had so that's going to be my point of reference.

Replace a Kodak DX6490

When you stated "good for mostly inside shots of kids, dogs etc", you present a problem.

In the many years between the DX6490 and now, there has been almost no improvement in low light performance of non DSLR cameras.
With the exception of about 6 cameras.

Here is a comparison of compact superzoom cameras:

as long as they perform as well as my old Kodak I'll be happy. Was looking for something lighter and maybe better pictures/video. Thanks for the link
