Kodak EasyShare CX7330

With its uncomplicated feature set and its foolproof photo-sharing system, Kodak's 3.3-megapixel EasyShare CX7330 breaks down most of the barriers faced by digital newcomers. Kodak has ensured that the journey from taking the camera out of the box to snapping a first picture is painless. And the CX7330 is priced very competitively, to boot. You'll just have to add the cost of an SD card. A set of rechargeable AA nickel-metal-hydride batteries is also highly recommended.

Loaded with batteries and media card, the CX7330 weighs in at about 8.2 ounces, and even though itÂ’s a bit too bulky to be pocketable, itÂ’s quite easy to carry around all day. A built-in cover protects the retractable 3X zoom lens, while a grooved front grip and a rear indent ensure that your handhold remains firm, in place, and out of the way of the cameraÂ’s flash.

Operating the CX7330 is easy, and youÂ’ll be aided by text notations describing the function of each of the shooting modes, which include Auto, Sport, Night, Landscape, Macro, and Video. Move to the clearly labeled control buttons on the back of the camera and youÂ’ll find direct access to the self-timer and burst mode, as well as to flash settings, image review and delete, and a tool for tagging photos to share via KodakÂ’s EasyShare system. Southpaws will appreciate the four-way controllerÂ’s position to the left of the small 1.6-inch LCD. Navigating the menu system is quick and easy.
