Features & Controls
The Eye-Q 3340 Zoom has a 5.8-17.4mm (38-114mm in the 35mm format) f/2.8-4.3 all-glass, bent light path, lens comprised of 12 elements. The lens moves inside of the camera and does not extend out from the body. When the camera is powered down the lens is protected by a built in shutter.
The auto focus system has a range of 0.5 m to infinity
in normal mode and macro coverage as close as 10 cm.
The built in flash offers Auto, Fill, Off, Red-Eye Reduction or Night mode. Flash range is
1 to 3 m.
You can frame your pictures with the color LCD or to save precious battery power you can
use the optical eyelevel finder. This is a real-image zoom type viewfinder with approx.
80% coverage. It has a dioptric adjustment knob. Next to the finder are two LEDs that
indicate the flash and focus status.
All the controls are on the back except for the shutter release. The 1.5-inch TFT color
display is used for preview, review and menu operations. The Mode switch has positions for
Movie, Play and Record and is built around the 4-way joystick that lets you navigate menus
and select images during playback. In record mode you press "Up" to zoom to telephoto and
"Down" to go to wide angle. The top button next to the LCD selects the flash mode, in
playback it toggles the index thumbnail mode. The MENU button calls up and dismisses the
menus. The Display button turns the color LCD on/off and controls the amount of data
displayed on it.
The I/O ports: The USB connects to the computer for image download.
The Video port lets you output to a TV set (NTSC or PAL format.)
And you can see the builtin speaker for camera sounds and movie playback.
The Eye-Q 3340Z comes with 16MB of internal memory that can be expanded by using
optional SD or MMC type flash memory cards.
The Eye-Q 3340Z is powered by two standard AA-type batteries, alkaline, NiMH or lithium cells. As always we recommend the use of high capacity NiMH rechargeable type cells. The camera is supplied with four NiMH batteries and a compact AC charger unit.
