Features & Controls

Kodak DX3700

Camera shown in the optional Easy Share docking cradle. The DX series cameras can be purchased as the camera outfit only or bundled with the docking cradle, NiMH battery pack (actually just two AA cells strapped together) and AC power adapter / battery charger.

The Easy Share Dock is great, you just drop the camera into place and press the button. This launches the Kodak Picture Software on your PC and downloads the photos. Leave the camera in the docking cradle and after several minutes of inactivity it will automatically begin charging the batteries (if using NiMH rechargeables.)

We have another page with screen shots of the Kodak Picture Software to show you how it works.

When you buy a Kodak Easy Share-compatible camera it comes with a special insert that mates it to the universal Easy Share Dock.



Kodak DX3700

The DX3700 is equipped with a 37 mm, f/3.3 auto focus lens with a 3X digital zoom. The focus distance in standard mode is 0.5 m (20 in.) - infinity and in macro mode it's 0.15 - 0.5 m (6 - 20 in.).

The optical viewfinder is large and bright with framing marks but no dioptric adjustment. The LED on the side indicates power is on and camera is ready to capture. The color LCD is automatically turned on when you switch the camera into macro mode to avoid parallax problems with the optical finder at close range.

The built-in multimode flash has a range of 1.6 - 7.9 ft. and can be set for automatic, fill, red-eye reduction or disabled.

All of the controls (except the shutter button) are located on the back. The POWER button turns the camera on and off. The FLASH button cycles you through the Auto, Red-Eye, Fill and Off modes. The SELECT button calls up the onscreen menu. Navigating the menus is simple, just use the 4-way selector to move up and down through the selections and accept a setting by pressing the SELECT button. The DELETE button erases pictures.

The switch below the 4-way controller changes the camera modes between (left to right) Record, Play and Setup.



Kodak DX3700

Unlike many of the other entry-level digicams the DX3700 has a Video Out feature, the signal is switchable between NTSC and PAL format. The USB port works with the Kodak Picture Sofware to make image downloading fast and easy even without the use of the Easy Share Dock.



Kodak DX3700

The DX3700 has 8MB of internal memory in which you can store images or to extend your picture taking capabilities it has a Secure Digital / MultiMediaCard (SD/MMC) card slot which accepts cards up to 128MB in capacity.


Kodak DX3700

Power is supplied by a single CR-3V lithium cell (supplied), the Kodak NiMH battery pack or two AA type batteries (alkaline type is not recommended.) The optional Easy Share Dock includes the rechargeable NiMH battery pack or you can use any brand of NiMH rechargeable type AA cells.
