The C653 has since been replaced, we recommend looking at the newer Kodak C190. Here's what we had to say about the C653 when it was released in January 2007:
The Kodak EasyShare C653 is another simple point-and-shoot that looks to help out the everyday user, but with the dodgy performance of similar models like the C743 and C875, we're not certain that this is the best choice.

Take a look at what users are saying about the C743 and C875 to get an idea of what using the C653 might be like.
