Kodak EasyShare C653 review: Kodak EasyShare C653

Review Sections

Between its ugly, chunky design and disappointing image quality, the Kodak EasyShare C653 is disappointing even as a budget snapshot camera. Five years ago, this 6-megapixel shooter might have barely passed muster, but today it's simply unacceptable. If you want decent pictures, you should seriously consider doling out the extra cash for a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35 or an Olympus FE-230 instead of this Kodak. For just a little more cash, you'll get a sleek, small, 7-megapixel camera that produces far nicer photos. The C653's sub-$150 price might look appealing, but it's simply not worth it.
