Bought in May 2007 for £54.99 and have to say we haven't been let down by the camera at all whatever the conditions when we decide to use it. Every picture taken using the Kodak Easyshare C613 is spot on when viewing pictures on the LCD viewfinder/display or once they have been printed off. The sheer depth of colour and detail is something we have ever come across before in such a cheap digital camera and it is obvious to even the layman that a lot of time and effort has been placed into designing the perfect digital camera.
Takes excellent pictures with lots of detail Small and compact making it light and easy to carry around Powerful flash Good battery life Easy to master controls Stops pictures blurring due to movement automatically Large viewfinder display at 2.4" 6.2 mega-pixel resolution
Poor audio capture when recording video clips Printer dock is expensive to buy Software takes ages to install and really slows down our home PC
Score out of 10:
Remembering the days when digital cameras first arrived with their inevitably massive price tag I was certain I wouldn't be sucked it to pay more than £100 for a new camera just for the sake of keeping up with the times. When a replacement camera was needed I found the Easyshare at an acceptable price and not expecting anything special what I have found myself with is a camera that is the business with plenty of bells and whistles to keep me occupied for hours at a time.
I have rated the camera at 7 out of 10 because the Kodak software has seriously slowed down my home PC. It now takes 5 minutes to boot up and when selecting pictures to open into a full screen the action can take up to 2 minutes to process. I have a fairly new computer so continue to find this very frustrating.
If you are someone who likes to have hard copies of their pictures I would suggest that you buy the printer dock. It is a bit expensive but over the long run I am sure that by printing our own pictures we will save a considerable amount of money.
A good quality first review - some might say a little short but for me it is the right length, especially as technical details about cameras just baffle me. Look forward to many more reviews from you on Ciao
