Kodak Online Photo Printing
- Great interface, Good pictures
- Expensive, lack of printing options
Not the best alternative. There are other options that offer cheaper prints with more options.
Price$ 0.49 (AUD)
Kodak's online photo service is one of the more expensive options for digital printing. For the average consumer purchasing 4x6 inch prints, it will cost you $0.49 per copy if you make less than 30 and $0.39 per copy in a bigger batch. Compare that to the average of about $0.30, and the extra cost will add up over the course of a few years. Larger prints are also expensive, particularly those at the 5x9 inch measurement, which cost a whopping $3.00 each!
Unfortunately for Kodak (and us!), there range doesn't extend much past this. The biggest print they do is a mere 8x10 inches. Whilst these three options may be enough to satisfy many people, comparatively they came up lacking against the competition. They do however offer support for TIFF and FLASHPIX files, as well as the standard JPEG.
What Kodak's service does have going for it is an extremely streamlined interface. It requires a small software download, but there is no signup, and out of the other software based packages, it took us the least amount of clicks to get to our destination. You have several image cropping options when uploading the pictures, but nothing like BigW's full editing functions.
Postage costs $1.99 within Australia for a regular order (bulkier orders may differ), and you are given the option to send overseas for $9.99. It takes around 5 days to arrive, which is about average, however you can pay a small extra fee (either $2.50 or $3.50) to speed the process up, which was a nice touch.
It is a shame Kodak's prices are so high, because they produce some fine images. We felt they were comparable with Fujifilm's shots, which we absolutely loved. Colours were rich and deep, although not quite as bright as Fujifilm's they still looked great.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
