Kodak EasyShare C663

Editor's Review

The Kodak EasyShare C663 emphasizes ease of use and versatility with a fantastic 6 megapixel sensor and Kodak's Perfect Touch technology. The Kodak C663 is a great point-and-shoot camera for the average user, with simple, easily accessible features and a large 2.5" LCD screen. The C663's video mode shoots 24 frames per second in MPEG-4, perfect for vivid playback on your television. The only thing that would be difficult to do with this camera would be to take a bad photograph. Kodak has tried to anticipate the needs of the casual photographer and provide flawless service.

A bit disappointed with C663 (Howard — 08/11/2007)

I chose this camera primarily for landscape shots & occasional closeups when backpacking, also as something I could keep in the glovebox of my car, & this model seemed to have the best features.
Maybe I was expecting too much, as I already own a Pentax digital SLR, but here are my opinions:
The instruction book is in English first, then French, then German, so the English index takes a bit of finding when you're in a hurry. I put a rubber band around the unwanted pages.
There are no instructions for the battery charger, other than pictures. What does the flashing green light indicate? I think it flashes faster when the battery is charged, but I am not sure. What is the "Refresh" button for?
The camera has no battery strength indicator. If you've been using the LCD a lot, or flash (intentionally or otherwise - see below) then it runs out long before you expect it to, & without anything to tell you.
The automatic flash seems to operate more often than I would have thought it needed to, & as I don't want it I have to consciously remember to switch it off prior to taking a shot.
One reason I chose this model is it has a viewfinder, but this only shows 85% of the scene, making careful composition tricky. The LCD lights up as soon as you turn the camera on, & it needs two presses of a button to switch this off, which I find rather annoying.
The camera does not deal with contrasty subjects very well, for example in some shots I took in a wood, the highlights were totally burnt out, while in a garden the shadows were near-black.
In light shade, soil and gray gravel came out with a horrible pink/purple hue, & foliage of plants a rather bluish-green. With closeups depth-of-field is quite poor.
Lastly, after a morning in my bumbag (fanny bag, for any North American readers) the camera's LCD was nastilly scratched; it's a shame it is not provided with a protective soft bag.

Great (William Bunke — 08/11/2007)

I have four KodaK cameras and love them all I bought the 12MP for 199.00 and the C663 for 120.00 Great prices. KodaK kicks ass.

Great Quality, Bad Service (Sherae Butler — 07/20/2007)

Camera works beautifully, but the batteries don't last long. The camera doesn't come with the instructions. When you really need it, be careful, may not work.

Camera to go for, (Joseph fernandes — 04/18/2007)

Its an excellent camera. The colors are better as compared to canon's and are comparable to sony's and NIKONS. The image quality does not look good on CAMERA but ARE ACTUALLY BETTER THEN MOST OF THE DIGITAL CAMERAs arround. KODAK's C663 has a professional lens into this, and mind it its better then CARL ZEISS that r fitted into Sony's. If you are looking for a sturdy , crisp, high color, easy to use, full manual settings camera then trust me, go and pick this one.

A total piece of crap and waste of money (Jessica — 01/31/2007)

I have had two of these cameras thus far. The first one I got for christmas, took some pictures, and it broke that night. I didn't even do anything to it, it just stopped turning on. I tried everything I could to fix it, nothing. So I went to the store and complained and got another one. I was extra careful with this one, putting it in the case after every picture and making sure it didn't get bumped or anything. Same thing happened after two days of use.

this is my first digital camera. i am appalled that kodak does not provide a users manual.They said go copy it off the internet.It is ac663 . What kind of costomers service is this? Unless I am sent a manual I will tell everyone not to buy kodak if they are a first digital camera user.I understand this lack is now true of all there cameras.

Easy To Use & nice pics (Patrick — 12/27/2006)

I bought this camera for Christmas for my wife....it takes great pics and she found it easy to use.
I used the batteries supplied but they went dead within a couple hours..I thought this was just bad batteries. I replaced them with new brand names batteries and they to only lasted a few hours after using the camera.
Great amera, but invest in some good quality batteries and keep a spare around!

KODAK C 663 (Sandip — 12/05/2006)

All right, the kodak c663 is an amazing device.without a doubt, its usp is its amazing ease of use.The controls are straightforward and it is ideal for capturing family photos.I really like the different screen settings available which automatically adjust picture properties to give you the best shots under different conditions.However, I felt that the LCD screen and overall finish of the product could do with some improvement.the projection at the left side of the camera(when viewed from the front) is not very aesthetically good to look at as well.However, apart from that, The camera is a handy and affordable device,great for non commercial and amateur use.

Review Kodak C663 Camera (R. Krentz — 09/07/2006)

I like the compactness of this camera and the quality of the pictures. I also purchased the 1 gb memory stick which gave me approximately 560 pictures at 6.1 mp and over 2500 at a lower pixel setting.
Although there are many functions and features in this camera, it is relatively easy to operate.
I recommend this camera for anyone who looking for a good camera that produces excellent quality pictures at a reasonable price.

I love this camera (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I just got this camera for father's day while on vacation and took about 100 pictures at the beach. I set it to auto and took picture in a dark room to full sun on the beach. I just uploaded to my computer and the pictures are fabulous. The video picture and sound is excellent. I have yet to open the instruction book! I love this camera!

Easy, and great pictures! (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I love this camera. It is perfect for my needs. It was very easy to learn how to use. (I am a grandma with limited knowledge of all things 21st century!) It takes very sharp pictures of my ever moving grandchildren and is so easy to download pictures to my computer.

Poor lense quality (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

Pictures are sharp in the middle but quite blurry around the edges. I could only attribute this to the quality of the lense, but I'm not a pro photographer. I also find it difficult to hold still while taking a picture. Ergonomics aren't good.
