The fully automatic exposure control and limited exposure options keep user exposure decisions to a minimum, although you can adjust a few variables such as flash mode and exposure compensation. The LCD menu system is short and simple to navigate, with the familiar Kodak design standard, and the Mode dial lets you change camera modes quickly. Given the simple interface and limited controls, you should be able to snap images right away, without much more than a glance at the manual.
A battery icon also appears, reporting the approximate level of charge left. A half-press of the Shutter button highlights the AF area selection in red.
Playback-Mode Display In Playback mode, you can press the DX's multi-controller to zoom in or back out of an image, with a maximum enlargement of 4x. Through the settings menu, a more detailed information display is available, reporting date and time of capture and the image quality setting. Sorry, I missed grabbing the zoomed-playback view for the screen shots above. Shutter Button : Located on the camera's top panel, this button sets focus and exposure when halfway pressed, and fires the shutter when fully pressed.
In Playback mode, pressing this button returns the camera to the selected Record mode. Mode Dial : Just behind the Shutter button, this dial controls the camera's operating modes, with the following options available:. Zoom Toggle Button : In the top right corner of the back panel, this button controls the optical and digital zoom in any record mode.

Pressing this button in Review mode displays the Share menu:. You can delete individual images or all images on the card. There's also an option to cancel. Four-Way Arrow Pad : Dominating the left side of the camera's back panel, this rocker button features four arrows.
In any settings menu, the arrow keys navigate through options. Pressing the center of the button acts as the "OK" signal to confirm selections. In Record mode, the center button also controls the LCD display, turning it on or off.
In Playback mode, the right and left arrows scroll through captured images and movies, while the center button acts as a shortcut to the 2x and 4x image enlargement screens.
Review Button : The final control on the back panel, this button is located in the lower right corner. Pressing this button in any Record mode activates Playback mode. Once in Playback mode, pressing the Shutter button returns to the Record display. Movie Mode : The first option on the Mode dial, Movie mode is indicated by a movie camera icon.
In this mode, you can record x pixel resolution movies with sound, at 15 frames per second. Auto Mode : Marked with a camera icon and the word "Auto," this mode is best for most average shooting conditions. Exposure is automatically controlled, but a small selection of user options is available through the Record menu. Sports Mode : A small, black icon of a person in motion marks this mode on the Mode dial, which uses faster shutter speeds to capture fast-moving subjects.
Night Mode : This mode is indicated by a person with a star on the Mode dial, and uses longer exposure times to capture bright images in low light. Landscape Mode : A mountain icon indicates this mode on the Mode dial.
Here, the camera fixes focus at infinity for distant subjects and scenery. Macro Mode : The traditional flower macro symbol marks this mode on the Mode dial.
The focus range changes for close-up subjects in this mode, and limited exposure options are available. Playback Mode : Accessed by pressing the Review button, this mode lets you review captured images and movies, as well as manage files.
Record Menu : The following menu items appear whenever the Menu button is pressed in any Record mode. However, not all menu options are available in all modes. In the Box In the box are the following items:. Recommended Software: Rescue your images! Just as important as an extra memory card is a tool to rescue your images when one of your cards fails at some point in the future. I get a lot of email from readers who've lost photos due to a corrupted memory card.
Memory card corruption can happen with any card type and any camera manufacturer, nobodies immune. A surprising number of "lost" images can be recovered with an inexpensive, easy to use piece of software though. Given the amount of email I've gotten on the topic, I now include this paragraph in all my digicam reviews.
Read our review of it if you'd like, but download the program now , so you'll have it. While you're at it, download the PDF manual and quickstart guide as well. Stash the file in a safe place and it'll be there when you need it. Trust me, needing this is not a matter of if, but when PhotoRescue is about the best and easiest tool for recovering digital photos I've seen. Disclosure: IR gets a small commission from sales of the product, but I'd highly recommend the program even if we didn't.
OK, now back to our regularly scheduled review About Batteries Well, not quite "back to our regularly scheduled review.. Despite their being packed in the box with many cameras, they simply don't have the juice to handle typical digicam demands.
The few dollars up front will save you literally hundreds of dollars in the long run, not to mention the hassle of wimpy batteries running out in the middle of the action. Buy two sets of batteries too, so one can always be in the charger, ready to go, and so have two sets available for longer excursions. Check out my Battery Shootout page for the latest in actual, measured performance of various AA batteries.

Color : Although the DX offers only fully automatic white balance, Kodak's Color Science technology does a superb job of producing accurate color under almost any light source. I generally found very slight color casts in the DX's images, but they were slight indeed, and it did an exceptionally good job with the tough incandescent lighting of the Indoor Portrait with and without flash , as well as under my studio lighting. The very slight pink cast produced attractive skin tones, and the camera did a nearly perfect job in overall color rendition, handling even the notorious blue flowers of the Outdoor Portrait test very well.
Colors were bright and vibrant, hue-accurate and appropriately saturated. Exposure : The DX had a tendency to overexpose slightly outdoors and under the studio lighting.
