Battery Compartment

Battery Compartment (click for larger image)

As with the DC265 the battery compartment on the DC290 is in the handgrip covered by a double door, opening the outer door reveals a sliding holder which retains the batteries. Kodak sensibly supply the camera with a set of NiMH chargeable AA batteries and charger along with power socket adapters for just about every type of power socket worldwide.

CompactFlash Compartment

The DC290 CompactFlash compartment is beside the battery compartment in the handgrip, unfortunately Kodak haven't yet implemented a Type II slot (slightly thicker) which means you can't use the higher capacity CF Type II cards. Beneath the ejector lever is a warning light which flashed whilst the camera is writing data to the CF card.


Connectivity (click for larger image)

On the side we have connectivity for power (7V-8V DC), a multiple I/O port (USB, RS232), the AV output (audio & video, PAL/NTSC software switchable) and flash synch port for connection to flash equipment. Additional to this the camera also features an IrDA infrared port on the front of the camera which can be used for transfer of images between camera and computer or camera to camera.
