Kodak DX6340 - changing ISO setting

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Gerrit 't Hart, Jul 16, 2005.

  1. I have a Kodak DX6340 and am generally quite happy with the results.
    However when trying to shoot in low light areas I would like to be able to
    change the ISO setting.
    I believe that should be possible (the manual explains how it is done).
    However the menu system on the camera does not give the option to make the
    change. :-(
    Does this mean I have an old version of the firmware or is there something
    else?
    Can anyone help. Please.

    Greetings Gerri,

    I am glad to help.

    Your camera can set the ISO by doing the following. Note, however that ISO
    settings are not available in all modes so be sure you are in Landscape,
    Closeup, and PAS modes. Following is information from the manual.

    The ISO setting controls the camera's sensitivity to light. Use a lower ISO
    setting in brightly lit scenes; use a higher ISO setting for low-light
    scenes.

    NOTE: ISO settings are available in Landscape, Close-up, and PAS modes.
    Higher ISO speeds may create a picture that is "noisier" than a picture
    taken at lower ISO speeds.

    1. In any Still mode, press the Menu button.
    2. Press to highlight ISO Speed , then press the OK button.
    3. Press to highlight an option, then press the OK button.

    AUTO (default)-sets an ISO speed (100-200) based on scene brightness. Ideal
    for general picture taking.
    ISO 100-for daylight pictures in bright sun, when fine detail is needed.
    Ideal for portraits or nature scenes.

    ISO 200-for cloudy, overcast days. Ideal when you need extra speed without
    sacrificing image quality.

    ISO 400-for dusk or night pictures when flash is prohibited. Ideal for
    sporting events and excellent for indoor shots with or without flash.

    4. Press the Menu button to exit the menu.

    This setting remains until you change the Mode dial or turn off the camera;
    or, if it was set while in PAS mode, until you use Reset ( Resetting Manual
    Settings to Defaults) to return to the default setting.

    Hope this helps, Gerrit

    Talk to you soon,
