Default 6490 shutter speeds ?

I just purchased a DX6490 and am very happy with it so far, I was wondering if anyone knew the maximum shutter speed? In Manual mode it's 1/1000 sec. but I read somewhere else that it can do up to 1/1700 sec. If so, is it just in sports mode?

Interesting, I thought the max shutter was 1/1700 too ...in fact, it states that very setting here:

However, on every setting I tried 1/1000 is the fastest shutter speed.

What is the secret Kodak? ...or is it a bad typo?

on manual mode and aperture priority mode, the faster shutter speed is 1/1000 sec, but it can reach 1/1500s or even 1/1700s on auto mode or other scene modes somehow

I noticed that after viewing some P Mode EXIF info...not really an issue for me either way.

turn to auto mode, and shoot the sun at daytime (but don't point to the sun for too long, or the CCD of your DC may get burnt) and check again
