Kodak's new EasyShares, the V705, C743 and C433

 

That 8 Megapixel EasyShare C875 got away from them last week, but Kodak has managed to do some right proper releasing for the other three new members of their EasyShare lineup. Sexiest of the group is naturally the V705, a followup to their V570. The...

Kodak EasyShare C743 review

 

Kodak EasyShare C743

Has an optical viewfinder; handy in-camera editing.

Chunky build; very noisy images; few manual controls.

With so many better choices for budget cameras available, pass on the bulky, noisy Kodak EasyShare C743.

Easy Share C743 Zoom Digital Camera

 

The low-cost ($200 as of 10/6/06) C743 strikes a good balance between affordability and performance, delivering high image quality and ease of use.

High image quality Low price

Lacks manual controls and antishake Average battery life

Like most Kodak point-and-shoots, the C743 is very easy to use. The help menus and clearly labeled buttons make it easy for beginners to learn to use the camera. You get 13 scene modes (about average for this class of camera), including Children,...

Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera - Express Review

 

Selling for just under $160 -- though we've seen it for as low as $135 online -- the Kodak C743 has a 7.1 megapixel CCD imager, a Kodak-branded 3x optical zoom lens with a 37-111mm equivalent focal range, and a 2.4-inch LCD, along with a real-image...

Extremely easy to use ; Pairs with Kodak's excellent EasyShare printer docks ; Optical viewfinder (along with 2.4-inch LCD) ; Decent movie mode

Poor results when shooting indoors or outdoors in low-light, Underpowered flash, Frequent overexposure problems in images with high contrast, Problem with early shutter penalty, Mediocre resolution on LCD, Pronounced chroma noise at even ISO 80, Must...

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....

Kodak EasyShare C743

 

It may be the cheapest camera in the shop, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

It's not all bad though. The C743 is quite large by modern compact camera standards, but at least that means it's fairly chunky and easy to hold. At 145g it's also heavier than most compacts, but it feels very light for its size. Build quality at least...

Kodak EasyShare C743 7Mp compact camera

 

The basic, low-cost Kodak EasyShare C743 offers high image quality, but lacks manual controls and advanced features.

The simple-to-use Kodak EasyShare C743 is a solid choice for hobbyist photographers on a tight budget.
