Question: Kodak DX7440 and Camera Dock 6000

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Arthur Harris, Jan 29, 2006.

  1. I just bought a DX7440 camera. Because of the delicate (flimsy?) battery
    door, I am considering buying the Camera Dock 6000 so I can re-charge
    without removing the Li-Ion battery each time.

    Besides charging, what else will the Dock do for me? Can I plug the 5V AC
    adapter (included with the dock) directly into the camera's 5V input for
    indoor use?

    Also, I bought a Kingston 512MB SD memory card ($22.95 after rebate). It has
    a write speed of 1.5 MB/sec, and a read speed of 2 MB/sec. Will this be fast
    enough? How do these speeds relate to numbers like "45X"?

    Thanks,
    Art Harris

    The speed "X" rating is based on multiples of 150 kb/sec, so
    1.5MB/s and 2MB/s are equivalent to 10X and 13.3X. This is probably
    more than fast enough for use in the DX7440 for photos, but it might
    be a little too slow if the DX7440 can take high-res 30fps videos.
    It's also more than fast enough for USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 Full Speed.
    But if the camera/dock has a USB 2.0 High Speed port or you use a
    USB 2.0 High Speed card reader then the card will limit the transfer
    speed. Even with a slower USB port 512MB isn't exceptionally large,
    so you should be able to transfer all of the files from a full card
    fairly quickly, on the order of several minutes. Nothing like an
    hour or more. With my first digital camera (a Canon) I transferred
    photos using a serial port. Now THAT was slow!

    Greetings Art,

    It is a pretty nice feature, Art, and adds readiness to your list. All
    you need do is pick up the camera and continue with a charged battery.
    It is a convenient way to keep your camera at the ready. It also allows
    easy connection to the computer. Just set the camera on the dock and all
    the functions you have set will take place for you at the press of a
    button. The camera came with a wall charger, and this accessory allows
    you to take it with you where you travel. If you have an extra battery,
    you are all set with enough power for a full day of shooting. The
    EasyShare software is the key to these connections and it makes things
    easy to use.

    Talk to you soon,

    Ron Baird
