From the Manufacturer
At the touch of a button, this innovative feature--previously available only on Kodak printers and kiosks, or via lab processing--creates better, brighter pictures by bringing out detail in shadows without affecting lighter areas. It's ideal for underexposed pictures caused by shooting beyond the flash range or in adverse lighting conditions.
The Kodak EasyShare C663 digital camera uses the exclusive Kodak Color Science image processing chip for phenomenal image quality with rich color and accurate skin tones. Seventeen programmed scene modes (e.g., party, fireworks, children) and five color modes (high, low, and natural color, sepia, and black and white) help capture the best shot with the least effort.
On-camera picture-enhancing features include cropping, auto picture rotation, digital red-eye reduction, and blurry picture alert. The model also integrates Kodak's Share button with its 'favorites' feature for storing multiple pictures in an on-camera digital photo album. Each picture can then be shared anytime on the camera's high-resolution 2.5-inch indoor/outdoor LCD display. For capturing more than just still pictures, the camera also features high-quality (VGA) video capture, playback, and video action print options.
Making the EasyShare System Connection
C-Series camera owners can quickly print Kodak 4 x 6-inch pictures at home with just one touch in as little as 60 seconds, using the Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock Plus Series 3. (Printer dock not included--must be purchased separately.) The Series 3 printer docks are the first to support the new Imagelink print system, working with latest EasyShare cameras and other manufacturers' compatible cameras. The EasyShare printer docks also transfer pictures to a connected computer, and recharge the camera's batteries. Pictures made from EasyShare printer docks are vibrant, borderless, waterproof, stain resistant, and will last a lifetime, under typical photo album display conditions.
The C-Series cameras include Kodak EasyShare software for Windows and Macintosh systems, a part of the innovative, award-winning Kodak EasyShare digital photography system--consisting of cameras, snapshot printers, services, docks, software, inkjet and thermal photo papers, and accessories--makes taking, organizing, sharing, and printing high quality digital pictures effortless.

It powers up fast. Batteries last a good long while, and it's nice that it takes AAs. As far as I can tell, Kodak makes the friendliest interfaces of any digicam maker -- you're up and running in no time. I tend to shoot a lot of pix, then put the camera away for a while, then pick it up again. So I love it that Kodak makes this thing so easy to use that I'm not forever going back to the manual to refresh my memory.
Movie mode was a big selling point for me. I was waiting until cheap pocket cams came along that could do MPEG4 compression and 30 fps. It was worth the wait. Movie mode on this thing is fine, and very fun. Nothing like a high-quality videocamera, but more than adequate for viewing in a good sized window on a computer. Sound quality is surprisingly good. And, with the MPEG4 compression, I can fit something like a half-hour of video on my 1GB SD card. That's great. I just drag the files off the card onto the Mac, and have a nice time storing them there and/or editing in iMovie, where they behave perfectly well.
I can't emphasize enough what a change this makes in video-taking. Very easy to take the camera out on the golf course, for instance -- just tuck it in a pocket and pull it out to shoot your buds taking swings or horsing around. Try that with a traditional videotape camera. Video becomes much more casual and easygoing than we're used to. Being able to take video any time you have a small camera with you is amazing.Read more ›
Another good point -- Kodak has great support. I had problem with my c340 and it was serviced (warranty) and mailed back to me in 1 week. Much better than Sony(90 day warranty) or Pentax(2 months in service) experiences I had.
Camera's response is fast-- power-up time is under 2sec., easy to navigate and set-up. Use of AA- type of batteries is a plus and Ni-MH rechargables are cheap. Battery life is very good. I recommend usin 2700mAh Ni-MH. It seems to me that white-ballance is not performed when image is shown on the LCD, but when taken, image is balanced. Large LCD is surprisingly resilient to the sunlight situation. I guess die to Kodak's OLED technology.
Wish they had 7 MegaPix, but Schneider lense offsets that.
The display is big, however, one other con of this camera is that my pictures look a little fuzzy on the display. Once I download them in to the computer, they look very clear. I'm just now ordering my first batch of prints so I am anxious to see how they print out.
Overall - Kodak makes a great camera and I am very happy with this model.
2. Great for point and shoot! When I take pictures, I dont want a heavy camera or one that has to be held with 2 hands to get steady photos..This camera takes great pictures just holding it one-handed. With the wrist strap, it's even easy to switch features on the top of the camera with the same hand you're holding the camera with!
3. 2.5" LCD Screen?! AMAAAAZING! Now I look at all the 1.7"s and laugh :).. Screen is VERY bright and again easy for point and shoot. One setting even puts a little chart in the corner of the screen for you to monitor the light on the object you're taking a picture of. I've seen some reviews about how the screen is kind of blurry, however, you'll have a better idea if you zoom in. Another great feature on the screen is the "Blur Alert" which notifies you with a small green(=good), yellow or red(=blurry!) hand.
4. So many setting options!
Auto, Landscape, and Close-up shooting modes, plus 14 additional preset Scene modes
Auto is great for all times.. Close-up took EXTREMELY FOCUSED pictures of my new engagement ring (blurred out the background, it was so in focus!!) Night portrait setting takes great pictures when it's evening time and you want a picture of you and also something behind you.. As long as the person holding the camera has a steady hand, this takes great pictures!Read more ›
