Review first posted 26 November, The other great thing about kofak is the koddak of buying replacement parts. The DC was somewhat faster in this area, thanks to its fixed-focus lens, which eliminated the time normally required for autofocus operation.

Overall though Oodak think the average user is going to be quite happy with the pictures that the DC Zoom produces. Strobe flash auto, fill, red-eye, offrange up to 9. Great Digital Camera for the long haul and Easy to use!

Koodak to main content. Jump to the DC Zoom Specifications. The downside of the fixed-focus design is some softness in subjects shot at infinity, and a restricted macro focusing range.
