    I believe Kodak has a real Service Centre that handles professional level equipment.
    Wahahahah, that'll be a classic misunderstanding sia!

    wah lau it looks so... innovative! in terms of body design
    NOT FAIR NOT FAIR how come all the 3rd party cams using F80??

    although it is quite disappointing to see they retained some consumer performance on the SLR side? the 1.7fps and F80's metering.. hope they "uptweak" a bit..

    So what about Nikong?

    After looking through the specs, these are what I gathered:

    Good:
    1. 13.7MP full frame CMOS sensor.
    2. Selectable color space.
    3. Nikon 10-pin remote terminal.
    4. Upgradable buffer size and user upgradable firmware.
    5. Serial port for GPS connection.
    6. Firewire.

    Not so good:
    1. More like based on F80 rather then F100.
    2. 0.5EV step instead of 0.3EV.
    3. ISO 800 max.
    4. Slow fps similar to F80/S2/D100
    5. 1/125 flash sync speed.
    6. D-TTL flash.

    The features are more or less the same as the D100/S2 except for the 13.7MP sensor. The question is, are you willing to pay about double the price just for that sensor?

    Big sensors are very expensive to make. I think this cam is for studio pros who need details rather than journalists who need speed. With 2k difference in price, it may beat Canon 1Ds for those dedicated studio photographers whose concern is image quality instead of other fancy but not really useful features.

    I thnk a wide useable ISO range is a must, unless IS/VR can go up to 3-4 stops haha (19" diameters anyone?)

    yup think the kodak is still a "test water" model for kodak bodies... until they can secure a pro design...

    this is the year of 35mm? Nikon? think more ppl buying nikon system now that more choice there... however LOL I just realised can buy a nikon system now without buying Nikon branded stuff...
    They need a Steve Jobs...

    Haizzz .......... Kodak HAS BEEN making pro DSLRs based on Nikon and Canon bodies. Its not something new for Kodak and there's certainly isn't a need to "test water". They have a reputation already.

    Well.......since it is based on a Nikon F80 body and uses Nikkor lens, I think Nikon Spore may be able to take care of repairs. Anyone can comment??

    Seems like now in the mkt, Fuji and Kodak DSLRs uses the Nikon F Mount.

    Guess you didn't read my post above, otherwise you'd not be quite so ignorant about Kodak and professional DSLR's

    I wonder if they will recall it due to excessive lightning strikes.
    [Don't laugh - mirco$oft claimed that their supposedly uncrashable windoze 2000 web servers died because of excessive lightning strikes - that's a true story]
