Only after getting into the super-zoom vs DSLR debate did I revisit the specifications of my old Kodak DX6490. I was very surprised by its features, which I am listing below.

In fact, if I had decided to purchase a new battery for the camera (instead of going in for DSLR), it would still have been a worth while investment, even though the camera was purchased 10 years ago.
