Kodak EasyShare C663 Digital Camera Review

The Kodak EasyShare C663 is a compact point-and shoot digital camera that is the first to include Kodaks Perfect Touch image processing technology. Perfect Touch was able to restore the details of sections of the images that were almost lost in the shadows. Its also non-destructive in that it creates a new image so that the original is not altered, which is useful if you decide you might be able to do a better job in an image editing program.
With an ergonomic shape, made of plastic not metal, its not slim and modern, but it has a viewfinder (optical, 84% accuracy): more utilitarian and less aesthetic. It is based on a Schneider-Kreuznach lens and CCD sensor. The camera includes a red-eye reduction mode, so red-eye should not be too much of a problem. A funny thing about this Kodak is the fact that even if it does have a manual mode, is has no aperture or shutter priority modes; also no manual focus is present and amazingly no custom white balance. It comes with: Kodaks EasyShare software, USB 2.0 connection, DPOF and PictBridge but no A/V output. For this ability, youll need a camera dock, which acts as a battery charger and selectable NTSC/PAL video and audio output.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
