Kodak EasyShare C653 Zoom
Mouseover image for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Kodak EasyShare C653 Zoom features 6.1 megapixel resolution and a KODAK AF 3X Optical Aspheric Lens (36–108 mm). It is an entry-level easy-to-use point-and-shoot compact digital camera with AUTO mode, plus Scene Modes to automate common picture-taking and some of the more challenging lighting situations.

There is a large 2.4-in. LCD screen and you can record VGA video (640 × 480) at 10 fps with sound.

The Kodak PERFECT TOUCH Technology brightens pictures that look too dark, and Digital IS (anti-blur scene mode) will automatically select a high ISO to help eliminate or reduce blur due to camera shake and/or subject movement.

The Kodak EasyShare C653 is for first-time photographers wanting an affordable entry-level digital camera with KODAK's famed ease of use.
