Kodak EasyShare C743 Reviews

TrustedReviews reviews the Kodak EasyShare 743 and writes;
“The Kodak EasyShare C743’s low price may be a temptation, but don’t be fooled; it actually represents extremely poor value for money. The meagre list of features, horrible zoom control, slow performance, appalling low-light ability, limited battery life and very poor image quality will prove to be a major disappointment for anyone unlucky enough to find themselves in possession of this camera. If the C-series is going the way of the Dodo then the C743 will not be missed.”

ImagingResource reviews the Kodak EasyShare 743 and writes;
“I was also frustrated by frequent overexposure problems in pictures taken in high contrast conditions. In several cases, a blue sky or the white exterior of a car were completely blown out. So while the Kodak C743 would appear to give you good bang for your buck, its problems with image quality keep it off the Dave’s Pick list.”

PCWorld reviews the Kodak EasyShare 743 and writes;
“Like most Kodak point-and-shoots, the C743 is very easy to use. The help menus and clearly labeled buttons make it easy for beginners to learn to use the camera. You get 13 scene modes (about average for this class of camera), including Children, Sport, and Backlight. If you accidentally erase a photo while reviewing your album, you can undo the deletion–but only immediately after you’ve deleted the image. Once you exit the playback mode, you can’t recover the picture. This simple-to-use camera is a solid choice for casual photographers on a tight budget”

CNET reviews the Kodak EasyShare 743 and writes;
“Noise is the C743’s greatest problem. While the camera can only reach ISO 400, the shots look as if the camera were set at ISO 1600. At the highest sensitivity setting, our images looked incredibly fuzzy, and fine details appeared smudged and blurry. Besides the heavy grain, our test photos also showed a lot of chromatic aberration, the purplish fringe that can appear on the edges of contrasting objects. Distortion is the C743’s other major flaw; images are even and accurate in telephoto mode, but zooming out to a wider angle causes images to balloon and contort sharply.The good: Has an optical viewfinder; handy in-camera editing. The bad: Chunky build; very noisy images; few manual controls. The bottom line: With so many better choices for budget cameras available, pass on the bulky, noisy Kodak EasyShare C743. ”

    I brought the camera and yet it seems easy to use I have had some terrible pictures to show. You must be close to the object, so I don’t see the purpose of the zoon len and when you do zoom the pictures are blurry and horrible. I have DARK pictures when it’s very light. I have tried several of the scene choices and still to no prevail the pictures are not clear and crisp as you would expect from a digital camera. Yet reasonable but unfortunately not the best choice of digital camera. I am very suprise at Kodak.
