      A brillliant little camera.

      I'm the worst person out there when it comes to technology so writing a review about a digital camera is quite scary, but I'm going to have a crack at it and do my best. So here goes...

      The camera I'm reviewing is the Kodak EasyShare C643. it's the camera we always take on holiday or to special occasions. The reason is that it's a simple to use camera yet gives good results.

      The Camera
      The Kodak EasyShare C643 is quite bulky when put next to some of the ultra slim digital cameras around. Its silver in colour and size wise is 3.5" x 2.5" x 1 inch. On the top there is a small wheel. This is used to choose the correct setting to get the best picture possible for different conditions and locations. Next to this you will find 2 small buttons, one to turn the flash on and reduce "red eye" and the other is the timer button. This is used for time delay photos. You can delay the picture taking for 2 or 10 seconds. This is great when you want everyone in the picture. Its a feature we have found very useful.
      On the bottom is the battery compartment, it's a simple flap opening and requires 2 AA batteries.
      The camera has 6.1 mega pixels and a 3x zoom lens. It also has a 5X digital zoom.
      It has automatic focus and built in flash.
      The camera comes with a wrist strap and the wires to up load your photos onto the computer.

      On the side of the camera there is a small slot to push your memory card into. This is just another simple flap opening so its easy to use.

      On the back of the camera there is a 2 x 1.5 inch screen, once again smaller than some of the more recent cameras but plenty big enough to take good pictures. There is also a viewfinder if you don't like using the screen or the sun is shining do you cant really see anything on the screen.
      There is a delete button, a menu button and a review button which lets you scroll through the pictures you have taken.

      Taking a picture
      You should first choose your correct setting using the wheel on the top of the camera. The settings are as follows

      Auto--this is used for general picture taking and to be honest we use this settings 99% of the time.
      Landscape-- For distant scenery
      Close up--For subjects closer than 28 inches
      Scenery--This has several different settings including a back light, fireworks, party, sport, self portrait, snow and beach.
      Video-- the camera also enables you to take small sections of video recordings.

      To take the picture simply press the button on the top of the camera. This is actually the centre of the settings wheel.

      There is a crop facility so you can cut your pictures if you choose to.

      The camera also has a 32MB internal memory so if your card gets full you can still take more photos.

      I can not say how much this camera cost because my fiancé had it as a gift however I would thoughrally recommend it if you want a camera that is easy to operate and gives great results.

      I appreciate there are many reviews that are far more technically detailed than this and I apologise for my somewhat amateur effort.

        Brilliant camera for money

        I have had this camera for 2 years and has been on numerous trips with me! It has survived water, bumps, falls etc and still takes the perfect pictures. Camera is very easy to use, buttons and functions are clearly labelled. Display screen is of good quality and size and the use of the zoom is really useful. The share button makes my pictures easily accessable to my family and friends, wherever i am. This kodak is very compact and lightweight. Loading pictures to the computer couldnt be easier, Kodak software for your computer makes sorting your pictures easy. I use the flash, red eye and background settings frequently depending on my surroundings i.e on my holiday to Egypt recently the option of taking a picture with a bright background made a huge difference in my quality of photograph. I would definately recommend this camera to anyone as it is easy to use and not over-technical.
