Battery Compartment

In the bottom of the hand grip is the battery compartment. The DX4900 takes 2 x AA batteries (we'd recommend NIMH rechargeable). If you buy the optional EasyShare dock you'll also get this 'wrapped' pack of AA rechargeable batteries which can charge in-camera on the dock.


All of the DX4900's connectors (apart from those which connect it to the dock) are hidden behind a rubber cover on the left side of the camera below the power switch. Here you'll find a video out port and USB connector.


The DX4900's small flash unit is mounted a good distance from the lens, this is a good sign as it should mean fewer red-eye problems with flash shots.

The unit is rated with a range of 0.5 - 3.2 m (1.6 - 10.5 ft) at wide angle and 0.5 - 2.3 m (1.6 - 7.5 ft) at full telephoto.


The base of the DX4900 looks fairly complex (for a consumer camera). Here's a list of elements from left to right: Battery Compartment, Compact Flash release lever, Tripod mount (not the worst location we've seen but it would block the battery compartment when on a tripod), Sliding connections cover for EasyShare dock.

Optional EasyShare Camera Dock

The optional Kodak EasyShare Camera Dock provides a quick 'drop in' facility for when you return back from a shoot. The Dock connects to your computer and the supplied AC adapter, this provides instant connectivity to your computer as well as a power supply for the camera. When using the supplied (with the Dock) double AA NiMH rechargeable battery pack the batteries charge in the camera when it's on the Dock.
