Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera Review

Kodak EasyShare C743 is a easy to use camera with a classic design, easy to hold and with a large LCD. A small optical viewfinder is also present letting you disable the LCD to save battery life, but, otherwise, the camera has only few manual controls. Quote from imaging-resource.com: “Other than in very good outdoor lighting conditions, colors lacked pop and images lost sharpness in the corners and in areas of high contrast, such as where a building meets the sky. The Kodak C743 also seemed to have exposure problems in high contrast situations, frequently blowing out highlights and overexposing bright areas. Worse, there’s a lot of chroma noise even at the lowest ISO setting.”
Also, the built-in flash is not very effective either. Some features of C743 include in-camera editing features: cropping, auto picture rotation, and undo-delete. For printing, Kodak suggests G600 printer dock. The dock will also charge your Kodak EasyShare camera in 3.5 hours or less. When connected to a computer, you can, at the touch of a button, transfer your pictures to your computer with the included USB cable. This compact digicam has USB 2.0 and video out interface.

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".
