Kodak has announced two entry-level cameras priced low enough to make it easy to own one. The cameras belong to the C-series point-and-shoot models, the 7.1-megapixel EasyShare C763, pictured above, and the C613, a 6.2-megapixel model.
Both cameras share many of the same features, differing only in the megapixel count and screen size. The C763 sports a 2.5-inch LCD display while the C613 has a slightly smaller one at 2.4 inches.
The new cameras allow MPEG-4 VGA video capture at 30fps, and users can print from movie capture as single frames in 4, 9, or 16-index thumbnails.
Kodak EasyShare C613 Digital Camera
The EasyShare C763 is priced at $180 while the C613 will retail at $120 when they come out in April. Yes, they come with digital image stabilization, but donâ€™t count on it very much. Itâ€™s not true IS that physically shifts the sensor to compensate for camera shake but rather a digital manipulation of higher ISO settings that permit shooting at low light, at the risk of getting some image noise. Hey, itâ€™s already cheap for a stylish Kodak, donâ€™t ask too much.
