Kodak DCS 760 Review
Front of camera controls
On the front of the camera are three controls, first on the right side (from the back) of the lens is the depth of field preview button, pressing this button stops the lens down to the selected (or metered) aperture allowing the photographer to preview the depth of field of the final shot (obviously the viewfinder view becomes dimmer when the lens is stopped down).
Below this is the mirror-lockup lever which is useful for minimizing vibration for very long exposures (no metering can be carried out with the mirror locked up, must us manual exposure).
On the left side of the lens mount is the focus mode selector (modes defined below).
Continuous servo AF (release priority)
|S||Single servo AF
If the subject is stationary, the camera focuses when the shutter release button is pressed halfway. Focus remains locked while the shutter release button is held in this position (focus lock). The shutter can only be released when the in-focus indicator is displayed.
Rear of camera controls
Main Body Buttons
Auto Exposure and Auto Focus Lock
|AF-ON||Auto Focus Start
An alternative to half-pressing the shutter release, starts auto focus. In combination with custom setting 4 (auto focus activation) this can be used for triggering auto focus independently of the shutter release button.
|OK||Monitor On / Confirm
Pressing the OK button immediately enables the main LCD monitor, displaying the last image taken (Kodak's equiv. of PLAY mode). The screen can remain on while the next shot is taken, it will be automatically displayed as soon as it's been processed. This button also doubles as confirmation in menus.
|CANCEL||Monitor Off / Cancel
With an image displayed pressing the CANCEL button powers the LCD off immediately. In menus CANCEL can either mean don't execute the current option or back up through the menu.
In shooting mode where AF point selection is enabled the 4-way controller is used to choose AF points. In playback mode (or after pressing the OK button) this control reverts to image navigation / menu movement. AF point selection can be locked by holding the L button and pressing any direction on this controller.
Enters or leaves the camera's menu system (described in more detail later). Oddly a single press with no display on the monitor enters menu mode, press again and the camera reverts to PLAY mode rather than simply powering the LCD monitor off again.
|Tag (mark) current
image / Record voice annotation
In PLAY mode (with an image displayed) this button marks / unmarks images, this can be used later to select images in Photo Desk. Hold this button for more than two seconds and a small microphone icon on the rear status LCD indicates the camera is recording a voice annotation (microphone is just to the left of the 4-way controller). This annotation is 'attached' to the last image taken or currently displayed image.
