Kodak Easyshare LS753 Review
Date: Aug 11, 2004
Kodak EasyShare LS753 Zoom Review is based on
a production model. All sample images are unretouched,
except where specified.
16.6mm (100mm), Auto, Pattern, 1/500 sec., F4.9
and ISO 80; Cropped
The Kodak EasyShare LS753 Zoom is strictly
a point-and-shoot digital camera that takes great
images in Auto mode. Its 5 megapixel resolution
allows you to print very large prints, and its
2.8x (36-100mm, 35mm equivalent) zoom range covers
from wide-angle to portrait range.
The LS753 is well designed with controls that
are user-friendly and intuitive to use. For most
situations, you won't need to navigate through
the Menu. For most of our sample images, we shoot
in Auto mode and find that Auto mode gives terrific
results in many different situations.
Because it is a point-and-shoot digital camera,
you won't find much exposure flexibility such
as Aperture-Priority, Shutter-Priority or Manual
modes. But for the more adventurous willing to
step from Auto mode, there are 15 scene modes
that automate exposure setting for a wide gamut
of picture-taking situations. A handy jog dial
makes selection fast and easy.
With its sleek and handsome metallic body (we
counted no less than four silver tones), the LS753
earns our JeansPocket
Certified award, which means you can safely
carry it in your jeans pocket or small purse for
take-anywhere convenience. A recessed power button
ensures that you won't accidentally turn it on
as you pocket it.
A feature that will be much appreciated by some
is the "My Favorites" album that functions
as a sort of digital photo wallet containing your
favourites family (or otherwise) shots to show
to friends and coworkers.
An optional Camera Dock 6000 (or Printer
Dock 6000, recommended) allows you to simply
drop the LS753 onto the docking station for one
button transfer of images from camera to PC --
while recharging the Li-Ion battery.
The LS753 is very easy to use, compact enough
to carry with you anywhere at all times, and gives
great pictures with point-and-shoot simplicity.
