kodak DC3400 8mb 2x Optical Zoom Camera


WHAT'S HOT: Impressive images and a solid, rugged feel highlight the Kodak DC3400. In our lab tests, it produced some of the best shots we've seen from a camera priced under $500. With and without flash, our photos were bright and pleasing, with...

Kodak's DC3400 is one of the few digital cameras that does not support a 640 by 480 minimum resolution--the lowest is 896 by 592 pixels

What's in the Box

Well-built - solid with smartly placed controls ; Good, colorful photos ; USB support ; User friendly manual and menus

No movie mode ; Trouble with low-light shots (night and macro) ; LCD display too grainy and choppy ; Playback mode could be simplified ; Only a 2X optical zoom

Owners Opinion: Kodak DC3400 (kayaker4fun, 19 Jul 04)
