Imagine being able to capture the beauty and character of a friendly face while the sun sets in the background. The focal length mm equivalent of the professional quality Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 10X zoom lens gives photographers superb framing flexibility.

Portrait, Night, Sport, and Landscape photography modes. Adjustable ISO from 80 to , with an Auto setting as well. Two AF area modes. External flash PC-sync socket. USB cable for connection to a computer driver software included. That said, the DX also has plenty to offer more advanced users, with options up to and including fully manual exposure control, an excellent lens, and a sync terminal for use with external flash units. Design Compact and reasonably small in size even with its large 10x zoom lens , the DX measures 3.
While fairly compact, the DX is still large enough for a good-sized handgrip, and fits into the hand well, the weight of the grip balancing the lens nicely. A plastic lens cap clamps onto the lens for protection, and features a small tether to attach it to the camera body and prevent it from being lost. In addition to the handgrip covered with a soft, rubbery coating to provide a more comfortable and secure grip , the front panel also holds a tiny microphone, a Command dial used for exposure adjustment, and a window above the lens that shields the light and autofocus sensors, self-timer lamp, and video recording indicator.
Just above the compartment is one of the neck strap attachments. The opposite side of the camera features the external flash PC-sync socket, beneath a flexible, rubber flap. Next to this is the other neck strap attachment.
Also on top of the camera is the pop-up flash compartment itself. The rest of the camera controls are on the rear panel, along with the electronic optical viewfinder EVF and LCD monitor. A series of raised bumps in the upper right corner provides a thumb grip, reinforcing the front handgrip.
Above the thumb grip is the zoom switch. The multi-controller toggle navigates through menu settings, confirming selections when pressed straight in. On the bottom panel of the DX are the tripod mount, a connector for the EasyShare dock, and the battery compartment. The threaded metal tripod mount is just off-center and too close to the battery compartment for quick battery changes while working with a tripod.
However, the side access of the DC In jack means you could conveniently plug in the AC adapter when working in a studio. The battery compartment features a locking, hinged door, which slides forward to open. The dock jack connects the camera directly to the EasyShare dock for quick image downloading. Kudos to Kodak for using a metal tripod socket, rather than a plastic one, as is becoming more common on digicams these days.
The DX proves no exception to this rule, even with its enhanced exposure features. The LCD menu system is short and simple to navigate, and follows the same format as the rest of the EasyShare line. Given the simple interface and well-marked controls, you should be able to snap images right away, with hardly a glance at the manual. The Information button turns the information display on and off. Pressing the multi-controller upwards enables a more detailed information display, as well as dismisses it.
Pushing down on the multi-controller activates the nine-image index display mode. Pressing the Information button cancels and recalls the default limited information display. In Playback mode, pressing this button returns the camera to the selected Record mode.
Pop-up Flash Release Switch: Sitting next to the flash compartment, this sliding switch releases the flash into its operating position. Focus Button: To the right of the Drive button, this button accesses the available focus modes, including Normal, Macro, and Landscape. Flash Button: Just to the right of the Focus button, this button cycles through the Auto, Fill, Red-Eye Reduction, and Off flash modes when the pop-up flash is in its operating position.
Zoom Toggle Button: In the top right corner of the rear panel, this button controls the optical and digital zoom in any record mode. Share Button: Below the Information button, this button lets you tag images for printing, emailing, or as a favorite image.
A heart icon appears on "favorite" images. Off: Turns the camera off, and signals the lens to retract. Automatic Record: Best for most average shooting conditions, this mode places the camera under automatic exposure control, with limited user options available through the Record menu.
Sports Mode: Optimizes the camera for moving subjects, freezing action. Portrait Mode: Sets up the camera for capturing portraits. Sharply-focused subjects are captured in front of slightly blurred backgrounds. Night Mode: Employs longer shutter speeds to allow more ambient light into the image. Syncs the flash with the exposure for brighter night shots. In Playback mode, the controller scrolls through captured images, when moved left and right.
When pressed straight in, it enlarges the displayed image 2x or 4x, or returns to the normal display. Pressing the button down activates the index display mode, while pressing it upward activates a more detailed information display.
You can delete individual images or all images on the card. Menu Button: To the right of the Delete button, this button displays the settings menu in Playback or Record modes.
It also dismisses the menu display. Review Button: On the right side of the Menu button, this button activates Playback mode when pressed in any record mode. Once in Playback mode, pressing the button again, or the Shutter button, returns to the Record display.
In this mode, you can record x pixel resolution movies with sound, at 24 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. Modes are adjusted on the LCD screen, and the available exposure setting is highlighted. Program mode keeps the camera in charge of aperture and shutter speed, but offers expanded exposure options through the Record menu.
Aperture and Shutter Priority modes provide user control over one exposure variable, and Manual mode provides complete exposure control. The result is a subject in sharp focus in front of a soft-focused background. 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.
