Record Mode Screens & Menus


Kodak DX3600 Zoom

Because it has no data LCD the camera settings must be checked on the color LCD. When first turned on, the icons shown on the top of this screen are displayed for several seconds and then the color LCD turns itself off. These settings can be displayed at anytime by pressing the Right arrow button.

Across the top from left to right: Flash status, image quality (2 stars for 1800x1200 or 1 star for 900x600), number of pictures remaining and the memory source (internal or card).

The Quickview option will display the picture just taken for about four seconds, the Trashcan icon means you can immediately delete it before it is stored. If you do nothing the image will be stored and the LCD turns off again.

The DX3600 Zoom can also record QuickTime motion video with audio at 320x240 (Best) or 160x120 (Good) at 20 fps. The movie length is limited only by available memory or can be preset at 5, 15 or 30 secs.

When the camera is in Macro mode the color LCD is automatically turned on. The macro range is 10-24 inches so there would be severe parallax error if you tried to frame the shot using the optical viewfinder.

Pressing the Flash button on the back cycles through the various flash modes as indicated on the color LCD screen. If the LCD is off it will turn on for several seconds each time you push the button to change the flash mode.
