    Someone, possibly Ron Baird, was claiming that the Kodak DX6490 has a minimum
    shutter speed of 1/1700s. In manual modes the shortest I can set it to is 1/1000s.

    Does it really go down to 1/1700s? How do I get there?

    Hi Ben,

    Yes, it really goes there. We include the specs for our cameras online.
    You can check them by going to the camera data directly. We use something
    call GO technology, so you need only add ..../go/dx6490 to our URL and you
    will get to our support page. On it should be a link to 'Specifications.'
    We include the shutter and aperture data as well as a lot more.

    In the case of the DX6490, use this URL


    Talk to you soon, Ben,

    Hope you enjoy it. It really is a great camera, and I wish Kodak would release
    the lens adapter for it. There website says it will be available starting in
    April 2004 - it's now the 20th...

    Hi Rudy,

    As I understand it, the shutter is an electro mechanical diaphragm type
    which should synch at any speed. Since the DX6490 does not talk to the
    flashe as many newer SLR type cameras do, only fires them, you need to
    control the flash and, of course, the camera settings for a correct
    exposure. So, if considering a flash to go with the camera, I would get one
    that has features on the flash itself, i.e. power settings, zoom, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Greetings Art,

    I do and am sure you are going to enjoy. As a person that enjoys imaging,
    you will particularly like the controls, external flash option and EVF.
    Have a good time, let me know if you have questions.
