Kodak DX3900 Review

Steve's Digicams

Kodak DX3900 Zoom

Record Mode Screens & Menus

There is very little data on the LCD screen during record operations. This is the screen you see immediately after snapping a picture. 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.

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.
