Kodak EasyShare C360 Review

The Kodak EasyShare C360 compact digital camera offers users a fully automatic camera without the confusion or hassle of complicated menu structures, printing set-ups, and manual controls.

The EasyShare C360 comes with a 3x optical zoom lens and a 1/2.5-inch 5 MP CCD. The camera has a well-sized 2.0-inch LCD screen with 110,000 pixels and a real image optical zoom finder with zoom recognition. The C360 is capable of recording video at a maximum resolution of 640 x 480 with a frame rate of 24 frames per second, which is a bit under the preferred 30 fps needed for smooth video capture.

Simple external controls and an intuitive menu setup designed for easy navigation means the novice digital camera user should find the C360 a reliable source of digital photography solutions.


Pocket-lint.co.uk have posted their Kodak EasyShare C360 Review today and rate it a 7 out of 10. They also have this to say about it-
"Given the (just) sub £200 price and more than adequate specification, not to mention you have 5 million pixels to play with, the C360 is not a bad little camera. Ideal for snaps rather than studied shots, the C360 is a nice model from Kodak, but it is at large in a world populated by many, many, equally as nice (or better) small, digital cameras. It is in for a fight..."
