The battery compartment is located beside the PC Card slot on the
left side of the camera behind a large door. The DCS620x only takes
Kodak's own (huge) NiCD or NiMH battery packs. My review camera
came with two of the newer NiMH battery packs which seem to last
forever (longer than I ever need them to).
The supplied battery charger can charge up to two battery packs
at a time (here showing two of the NiMH packs).
A small button on either side of the center sets the charger to
recondition that particular pack (less important for NiMH batteries
but something that should be done to partially discharged NiCD packs).
PC Card Compartment
The dual PC Card slots are located next to the battery compartment,
in this picture we have one (massive.. 520MB hard drive) Type III
PC Card inserted which takes up both slots, other options would
be one / two Type II cards, one / two 340MB IBM Microdrives (in
PCMCIA adapters) or Type I cards.
The onboard software has functionality to switch between cards
On the right side of the camera hidden under a
pair of rubber grommets is the IEEE 1394 (Firewire) connector and
AC adapter power-in connection.
On the rear adjacent to these connections (and
protected behind a screw-in cap) is the remote release connection.
The only other connection is the standard PC flash
sync connector on the front of the camera.
Camera Base / Tripod Mount
On the base of the camera we find a solid rubber foot so no slipping
on table tops or tripod mounts here. A top quality metal tripod
mount which is exactly in line with the lens center and focal plane,
perfect for panoramas.
If only consumer digicam manufacturers would pay attention to simple
On top of the viewfinder you'll find the accessory shoe, a ISO-type
hot shoe allows direct connection to flash and other accessory systems.
Kodak / Nikon recommend use of the SB-28D speedlight.
