Kodak Easy Share C653 Review

Kodak Easy Share C653

The Kodak Easy Share C653 is enviable choice for a beginner’s camera. The C653 is very easy to operate and extremely handy. For those who want to do away with the technical aspects of photography and manual settings, the C653 is an ideal choice. There’s much to learn and remember. Besides, there’s nothing much to do expect point and shoot, the camera does the rest. The C653 is inexpensive but not lightweight and the looks and design may not appeal to many. It is not exactly a compact camera and requires effort to put in larger pockets too. But, the image quality is good and considering the price aspect the camera isn’t a bad buy either. Even, the videos shot with easy share are very good in quality of sound and image. This auto focus budget camera does have a small viewfinder and various preset modes to choose from that saves battery life. There are two battery options to choose from, either the alkaline ones or the rechargeable ones. There’s even a white balance and ISO adjustment option that is becoming rare for this price range. The camera turns on relatively fasts but pants a while longer between shots. Another notable feature is that the times count to three before clicking pictures. The favorite’s feature allows photographers to keep their favorite pictures close for easy preview. The auto rotation picture mode allows easy storage with portrait and landscape shots. There is also a dedicated picture share button that allows pictures to be transferred and emailed at the single touch of a button. The C653 has a fairly average performance on every front and is a good buy for its category. For novice and leisure photographers who do not want to spend a fortune, the Kodak C653 is aptly suited.
