Compact and similar in style to a traditional point-and-shoot 35mm film camera, the DX measures only 3. The camera’s all-plastic body makes it light weight as well, at 9. The DX squeezes into larger shirt and coat pockets, and comes with a wrist strap for carrying.

Its compact design includes a retractable lens, protected by a clip-on lens cover that tethers to the camera body with a short nylon manuual. Built into the DX is a 3x zoom lens, equivalent to a mm zoom on a 35mm camera, with accessory threads on the body ring for attaching an adapter for accessory conversion manua and filters. The camera’s autofocus mechanism uses a multi-zone system to “find” the primary subject closest to the lens.

You can change the Manuaal area to read only the center of the frame through the Record menu, or choose Selectable AF, which lets you set the AF area at center, or to the left or right of center. Additionally, you can choose between Continuous and Single AF modes.

Kodak EasyShare DX7630 User Manual

Focus ranges from 24 inches 60 centimeters to infinity in normal mode, with a Wide Macro mode ranging from 2. Telephoto Macro mode focuses from 11 to A Landscape focus mode fixes focus at infinity, for distant subjects and scenery. In addition to the 3x optical zoom, the DX also offers as much as 4x Advanced digital zoom, which effectively increases the camera’s zoom range to a total of 12x.

Keep in mind though, that digital zoom decreases the overall image quality, since it just stretches the center pixels of the CCD image. For composing images, the DX offers both a real-image optical viewfinder as well as a generous, 2. The DX offers full manual exposure control, as well as a range of partial manual and automatic exposure modes.

While Auto mode is best for general photography, leaving all of the exposure decisions up to the camera for true “point and shoot” photography, the Program mode lets you control options such as white balance and exposure compensation while the camera handles the basic aperture and shutter speed settings. Aperture and Shutter Priority modes let you control either aperture or shutter speed, while the camera selects the appropriate corresponding variable.

Finally, the Custom mode lets you save a group of exposure settings that can be instantly recalled. For example, if you frequently shoot indoors under a specific lighting setup, you can save the exposure settings for that exposure situation. The available scenes appear at the bottom of the LCD display upon entering the mode, and the Multi-Controller selects the scene.

The DX employs a Multi-Pattern metering system, which bases the exposure on several light readings taken throughout the frame, taking into consideration both brightness and subject contrast to arrive at the optimum exposure. Also available are Center-Weighted and Center-Spot modes. An Exposure Bracketing mode takes a series of three images, at different exposure settings, letting you decide which exposure is best.

White balance options include Auto, Daylight, Tungsten, and Fluorescent settings, which take advantage of Kodak’s proprietary Color Science technology to achieve an accurate color balance under most lighting. An ISO setting option offers equivalent settings of,and with the setting only available at the 1. An Auto ISO setting is also available. You can also adjust the in-camera sharpening. The built-in flash is effective from 2. You can also adjust the flash intensity, from A second Self-Timer mode provides a delay between the time the Shutter button is pressed and when the shutter actually opens, so you can get into your own shots.

In addition to its still photography modes, the DX also offers a Movie recording mode for capturing moving images with sound. Recording stops and starts with a brief, full press of the Shutter button, but if you hold the button down for more than a second or two, the camera will automatically stop recording when you let it back up again.

The recording duration can also be set via a menu option to fixed intervals of 5, 15, or 30 seconds. As you record, the duration of the movie appears in a running counter on the LCD monitor.


Maximum movie lengths depend on the amount of memory space available.

The 32 megabytes of internal memory will let you record movies up to three minutes and seven seconds in length. A Dx730 photography mode lets you capture as many as four frames in rapid succession while you hold down the Shutter button, with First and Last settings.

First saves the first four images taken, while Last saves only the last four in the series. The four-frame maximum number applies regardless of resolution, but actual burst length may be further limited by the available space on the memory card or internal memory, if either is nearly full.

In addition to its normal camera-related functions, the DX offers a relatively unique “Favorites” feature that Kodak pioneered relatively recently. Observing consumer behavior, Kodak realized that many people use their digicams for “portable slide shows,” keeping some of their favorite photos on them, and passing them around to friends and family to share their pictures.

Recognizing this as a popular usage pattern, Kodak developed the “Favorites” function, which lets you store reduced-resolution copies of your favorite images on the camera’s internal ,anual. The reduced image resolution roughly one megapixel in size lets you carry around many more images than you’d otherwise be able to, yet still provides enough image data to make good-looking 4×6 prints from, should a friend want prints of one or more of your Favorites.

In practice, the Favorites function works in conjunction with Kodak’s EasyShare software, installed on your computer. To save an image as a Favorite, you mark it as such by pressing the Share button on the camera’s back in Playback mode, selecting the “Favorite” option that appears on the Kanual menu.

The next time you connect the camera to your computer running the EasyShare software, any images marked as Favorites will be download, resized to the Favorites resolution, and then re-uploaded to the camera, to a set-aside portion of its memory.

The EasyShare software also lets you select how much of the camera’s internal memory should be devoted to storing Favorites.

All in all, manaul very manula feature that directly addresses a very common digicam usage. The DX is compatible with Kodak’s EasyShare dx7360 and printer docks, which offer hassle-free image downloading and printing. You simply put the camera into the dock the DX comes with a plastic insert that fits the camera bottom snugly into the dock and press the Connect button on the dock.

The dock station also serves as an AC adapter and mamual battery charger. I highly recommend picking up at least a megabyte card preferably a MB one right away, given the camera’s 2, x 2,pixel maximum resolution size. Since the camera does not accommodate AA-type batteries, I highly recommend picking up a spare battery pack and keeping it on-hand and freshly ddx7630. That said though, the DX’s battery life is rx7630, with a worst-case runtime of over two hours in record mode with the LCD on, manuao over 13 hours with the LCD off.

The camera comes with a battery charger in case you don’t have the accessory dock. Recommendation Like the rest of Kodak’s EasyShare line, the DX boasts a simple-to-understand user interface that keeps the fun in point-and-shoot digital photography. The DX’s range of exposure modes is perfect for all experience levels though, combining optional advanced exposure modes with the ease of use that’s made the EasyShare line so popular with consumers.

The DX’s versatile setup is a good option for kids or novice users who want to quickly learn more about photography, while more experienced users will enjoy the compact size and flexible manyal. The combination of fully automatic controls with more advanced options makes the DX a good camera for users looking for a camera that’s easy to use, yet has advanced features that they can grow into as their skills develop. Combined with one of Kodak’s EasyShare “Printer Docks”, the DX offers an all-in-one solution to digital photography, letting you go from manuao camera directly to great-looking prints without the use of a computer.

Compact and reasonably small in size, the DX measures 3. The DX is light weight as well, at just 9. A wrist strap comes with the camera, but I’d recommend a soft carrying case for travel.

The telescoping lens takes up the right side of the sx7630 front panel, surrounded by a thick, plastic lip complete with a set of threads that accept an optional lens adaptor for use in mounting filters and accessory lenses. The lens extends outward exactly one inch when the camera is powered on. A plastic lens cap pops neatly off when the camera is powered on, and an included tether keeps maanual from escaping. Also on the front panel mahual the optical viewfinder window, flash, autofocus sensor, self-timer lamp, light sensor, and tiny microphone.


A gently-sculpted finger grip on the side of the camera features a soft, rubbery pad for your fingers to cling to. I prefer grips with a steeper inside angle for long-term holding, but this works fairly well. On the right side of the camera as viewed from the rear is a polished silver eyelet for attaching the wrist strap. Though it is present and visible from the right side on the very similar EasyShare DX, the DX has no diopter adjustment on its viewfinder mankal.

The rest of the camera controls are on the rear panel, along with the optical viewfinder and 2. A slight bulge on the right side gives your thumb something to rest against as you hold the camera, reinforcing the front handgrip.

Above the thumb rest is a small manua dial, for adjusting a variety of dx6730 settings. Lining up to the right of the optical viewfinder are the Delete, Menu, and Review buttons. A large Mode dial takes up the lower right portion of the rear panel, with a joystick-like multi-controller button in its center and a small button between two finger ridges that releases the dial for turning.

The dx7360 navigates through menu settings, and confirms selections when pressed. The optical viewfinder eyepiece is quite small, but has a moderately high eyepoint to accommodate eyeglass wearers.

I could see the full frame while wearing my glasses, but found that I often ended up with the viewfinder eyepiece lightly touching my lenses. As noted above though, for some reason the DX dropped the dioptric adjustment on the viewfinder eyepiece that the DX had. Next to the viewfinder is a small LED lamp, which lights or flashes to indicate camera status such as when focus is set, flash is charging, etc.

Inside, the battery pack and SD card slots line up side-by-side, and a small ejection lever locks the battery in place or releases it. The SD card is ejected by first pressing it down, which pops it out slightly.

Kodak EasyShare DX zoom digital camera — User’s guide

The dock connection jack connects the camera directly to the EasyShare dock for quick image downloading. The full range of available exposure control options give users a lot of flexibility when they want it, while the camera’s automatic systems do an excellent job of capturing good-looking photos under a wide range of conditions.

The Jog dial on the camera’s rear maual lets you quickly change exposure settings, such as exposure compensation, shutter speed, ISO, etc. The LCD menu system is short and simple to navigate, and the plain-English descriptions of menu items are a welcome change from the too-common cryptic icons on so many other cameras. A Mode dial lets you change camera modes quickly, and once again, plain-English descriptions displayed on the LCD screen make operation straightforward even for rank beginners.

Given the simple interface and limited controls, you should be able to start snapping xx7630 right away, with hardly a glance at the manual. For more advanced functions, it shouldn’t take more than a half an hour to an hour depending on your level of expertise to get the gist of things.

Pressing the Display button once in a record mode cancels the information display, while a second press cancels the display entirely. A third press brings back the image and information displays. Playback-Mode Display In Playback mode, you can use the DX’s Zoom lever to zoom in or out on an image, with a maximum enlargement of 8x. A thumbnail display of the images on the card is also available, through the camera’s Playback menu.

The Display button offers a more detailed information display, reporting the exposure settings used to capture the current image. The normal Playback display reports the image number, and any ex7630 settings information. 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.

Encircling the Shutter button on the camera’s top panel, this lever controls the optical and digital zoom in any record mode.
