Kodak EasyShare DX6440 Zoom

The DX6440 is equiped with a high-quality Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 4X optical zoom lens with a focal range of 5.5-21.98mm (33 - 132 mm equivalent in 35mm format). The aperture range is f/2.2 - 5.6 in wide angle and from f/4.8 - 13 in telephoto.

The autofocus range is 19.7 inches to infinity in normal mode and in close-up mode it covers from 3.9 to 23.6" in wideangle and from 9.8 to 33.5" in telephoto. The auto focus is high speed and low light capable with selectable multi-zone or center-zone modes.

The optical viewfinder is large and bright with framing marks and autofocus target and has 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 flash has modes for auto, fill, red-eye and forced off. The working flash range in wide is 0.5 - 5.1m (1.6 - 16.7ft.) and in tele - 0.8 - 2.6m (2.6 - 8.5ft.)

The 1.8-inch color LCD can be used for preview, review and menu operations. The refresh rate when used as a live viewfinder is realtime (30fps) but it does get a little grainy in low light conditions. This is an indoor/outdoor type display.

The controls are fairly simple and effective. There's a dedicated Delete button to erase images during review. The Review button puts the camera into playback mode. The Menu button calls up and dismisses the menus. The Share button lets you select images for printing, e-mailing, or to mark as a favorite.

Navigating the menus is simple, just use the 4-way joystick in the center of the Mode Dial to move up and down through the selections and accept a setting by pressing it inward. The record and play menus are detailed on the next two pages of this review.
