The Concord 6340z is currently the “top of the line” model that Concord has to offer (as of 4/2005.) It combines 6-megapixels of resolution with a 3x optical zoom lens, all wrapped in a metal body. Although this is a entry-level digicam, it does have some more advanced features like Aperture and Shutter priority modes as well as a Manual mode.
Its 37-111mm (35mm-equivalent) zoom lens produced below-average results in our testing; very few of our test shots could be considered sharp. The quality one would expect from a 6-megapixel imager was not realized because of the marginal lens quality. That said, the 3x zoom lens does offer versatility in composing your shots, with its moderate wide angle being useful for interior shots and landscapes, while the telephoto range will bring your distant subjects closer. We notice average amount of barrel distortion at full wide angle, with slight pincushioning at full telephoto.
