CNET has recently published a review of the Kodak EasyShare C643, a 6.1 megapixels (CCD sensor) point-and-shoot digital camera (released on 18.02.06) featuring 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 35-105mm) and a 2.4″ LCD screen.
” Kodak EasyShare C643. The lens produces serious purple fringing along the edges of high-contrast objects, and colored auras appear along almost every dark object with a light background. The higher-resolution sensor produces more noise; we noticed splotches and grain at ISO 80, and our ISO 400 test shot looked like a watercolor painting. As a result, the camera actually produces worse photos in this respect than its lower-resolution brother. On the other hand, its color reproduction and exposure look far better. “
