Kodak Easyshare One Review
Features & Controls
The autofocus range is:
Macro close-up: 4-28 in. (10-70 cm) in wide angle and 17-28 in. (43-70 cm) in telephoto.
The built-in flash has modes for auto, fill, red-eye and forced off. The working
flash range is: wide: 2.0-10.5 ft (0.6-3.2 m); tele: 2.0-7.5 ft (0.6-2.3 m) when the
ISO Auto sensitivity is selected.
The color LCD can tilt and swivel to let you comfortably frame your subject
from many different angles as well as facing forward for self-portraits.
When the camera is not in use the LCD can be faced inward for protection.
This color LCD is actually a "touch screen" control device, you select images and
movies to be displayed as well as changing camera settings and making menu selections with the included stylus.
Most selections can also be made using your fingertip, however some like the
virtual keyboard will require the precision of the stylus.
The stylus is conveniently stored in a slot on top of the camera.
Controls on the back:
On top is the zoom lens control (functions as the - and + control of image enlargement in playback).
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. The Record/Playback switch on the side selects the camera mode.
The 4-way controller lets you navigate menus and select images, press the OK button in the center to accept selections.
The "Back" button lets you step back or cancel a menu selection.
The "delete" button is for erasing images.
The "i" button on the side controls the amount of
information that is displayed on the LCD.
Controls on the top: the Power on/off button, the flash mode
button and the shutter release.
The I/O ports:
The DC IN jack for an optional AC power adapter. Not shown is the docking connector on the bottom of the camera.
USB 2.0 high-speed port for download to the computer.
Works with the Kodak EasyShare Sofware even without the optional EasyShare Camera Dock
or Printer Dock. The USB port is Pictbridge compatible for direct,
This port also facilitates the A-V output cable with selectable NTSC or PAL
format and monoraul audio for connection to a TV set.
The camera is equipped with a healthy 256MB of internal memory and a Secure Digital
card slot that accepts any capacity SD card. We tested it with the spacious and speedy
Sandisk Ultra II 2GB SD card.
It may look like another SD card slot on the top of the camera but it's made
for use only with the Kodak WiFi 802.11b wireless card. When you're not using the wireless
features the card is pressed all the way down into the camera.
Push the card in and it pops about halfway out and becomes active, searching for any WiFi "hot spot" in public, your WiFi router at home or the Kodak Printer Dock Plus Series 3 (if setup with the optional Kodak WiFi card).
Using the EASYSHARE-ONE's WiFi capabilities you can wirelessly transmit your
pictures and movies, browse your online albums, send an email message
or make prints with the
Kodak Printer Dock Series 3.
This leather carrying case is included in the camera outfit.
Power is supplied by a proprietary rechargeable KLIC-5000 3.7v 1050mAh Li-ion battery pack. Kodak claims the battery life is 120-180 shots per charge according to CIPA standards. Battery life is dependant on how often the flash and WiFi card are used. Kodak includes two KLIC-5000 battry packs with the camera kit.
The battery is recharged with the included charger or anytime the
camera is placed on a Kodak EasyShare Camera Dock or Kodak Printer Dock Plus.
There are two KLIC-5000 batteries supplied with the camera kit to insure that you
always have enough power to capture and share your pictures.
