For this review Kodak Singapore were good enough to loan me the following equipment for a short period (thanks again to Steve Seah of Kodak Singapore):
- Kodak DCS 620 Body
- Nikon NIKKOR AF 28mm Lens
- Maxtor 130Mb PCMCIA Type III Hard Disk
- Battery & Charger
Note: because of the size difference between 35mm film and the CCD in the camera you have to multiply the focal length of a lens by a "focal length multiplier", in the case of the 620 this is 1.6 (focal length multipliers are listed on the comparison engine for all pro SLR cameras).
Therefore the 28mm lens supplied had an effective 35mm film focal length of 45mm. Another example would be a 28mm to 70mm zoom lens would effectively be a 45mm to 112mm zoom lens on this camera. (And a 500mm lens would be 800mm !!) Obviously to get true wide angle you would have to use an 18mm or less lens.
The anti-alias filter sits between the lens and the mirror and can be removed if required by removing a two small screws. The anti-alias filter on the 620 is of a notably different design than the 520, however the effect is the same.
The anti-alias filter has no
noticeable effect on the viewfinder, exposure metering or
