I chose this camera because it has the feature to stamp the date on the picture (in all sizes starting from 1.1 to 6.1MP), also the price was great. I've been using the camera for a while and the quality of the picture is very good, almost as good as a Canon SD 630 that I have. I like cameras that come with AA batteries, in this particular case, the 2 AA batteries would last 100s of pictures if you don't use the flash much. The camera is very easy to operate, and it's very handy. The videos that you can make are very good in quality of sound and image. I usually take pictures at 3.1MP, and it's good enough pixels to develop at 5x7 pictures. If you want to buy a camera for 120 dollars approx, this camera will not disappoint you. Good Luck!!!

I love this camera because it is a no-brainer. Made the mistake of spending $500 on another camera--which I could not learn to operate (the manual was absolutely useless); I gave it to a friend who is more camera savvy than I am. I love this Kodak's ease of operation, size, etc.

I've taken about 400 photos with my C653 and so far I am mostly satisfied. The most important thing is the ease of use ... this truly is a "point-and-shoot" camera. One of the first things I did was to take the same photograph several times with different settings. I didn't exactly master the settings, but it did help me adjust to the camera. To be honest, the "Auto" setting really works the best. I've been disappointed with some of the photos I've taken using the other settings, though several work very well (Close-Up, Night Portrait, and Landscape in particular). In fairness, some of the disppointing shots could be because I'm still learning the camera. Daytime photos have been clear and true-to-color, but nighttime and low light photos are sometimes grainy (using the Low Light setting does help, but not in every situation). Probably the biggest challenge with this camera is the timing. There is a delay when you press the button, and I've missed a lot of "in-action" photos. With a slight adjustment, though, I've been largely able to overcome this. There is a "Sport" setting, but I haven't used it with much success yet. If you are looking for a camera to catch a lot of sporting events, you might want to consider a more sophisticated SLR.

Downloading photos and working with the memory card are both easy as can be - I never even consulted the manual. It's even easier if you use Kodak's EasyShare online system to send photos to family and friends. While not as slim as some models, the C653 is relatively small, easy to transport and sturdy (it's been banged around a lot in my beach bag this summer - and dropped at least once - and doesn't look any worse for the wear).

Just purchased this camera today as replacement for my previous Kodak point& shoot 4.0 So far, Im pleased with it, easy to figure out how to use and for my purposes e.g. simple photos, it's working just fine.

I really loved my other camera but my husband has permanently "borrowed it" to use at work. I would recommend this camera for people who want an easy to use device that takes good, simple pictures.

Batteries that came with it were gone next day, but I bought some NI-MH rechargable batteries and a charger and the new batteries are still working after over a month. 2 in camera and 2 ready to go. The camera is easy to use and takes good pictures.

For an amateur like me this camera is the best - even takes beautiful pictures when subject is moving. My other digital - yuk - no matter what picture I took it was blurry. For the price you can't go wrong - excellent buy!

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By James Brown on June 21, 2007
I am not a camera 'buff', but it takes good basic pictures. It is easy to use. Special features I liked (1) timer counts down to 3 before taking picture (2) SD card is next to batteries on bottom of camera (3) very light weight (4) has a view finder so dont have to use LCD screen all the time which runs down batteries. My camera was refurbished. It comes with all accessories and looks like new.

I bought this product almost a month ago, it's very good product, easy to use, the clarity of the pictures is excellent. It doesn't come with rechargeable batteries; I have to buy it separately. Transferring files to my PC, consume very fast the battery. But, I think, it is a common problem in all digital cameras.
