Kodak Easyshare C663 Zoom Digital Camera

Building upon its popular consumer digital photography system, Kodak has introduced the EasyShare C663 zoom digital camera, with 6.1-megapixel resolution, a huge 2.5-inch LCD screen, and a Schneider-Kreuznach Variogon 3x optical zoom lens. It's the first camera to incorporate proprietary Kodak Perfect Touch Technology.

At the touch of a button, this innovative feature--previously available only on Kodak printers and kiosks, or via lab processing--creates better, brighter pictures by bringing out detail in shadows without affecting lighter areas. It's ideal for underexposed pictures caused by shooting beyond the flash range or in adverse lighting conditions.

The Kodak EasyShare C663 digital camera uses the exclusive Kodak Color Science image processing chip for phenomenal image quality with rich color and accurate skin tones. Seventeen programmed scene modes (e.g., party, fireworks, children) and five color modes (high, low, and natural color, sepia, and black and white) help capture the best shot with the least effort.

On-camera picture-enhancing features include cropping, auto picture rotation, digital red-eye reduction, and blurry picture alert. The model also integrates Kodak's Share button with its 'favorites' feature for storing multiple pictures in an on-camera digital photo album. Each picture can then be shared anytime on the camera's high-resolution 2.5-inch indoor/outdoor LCD display. For capturing more than just still pictures, the camera also features high-quality (VGA) video capture, playback, and video action print options.

Making the EasyShare System Connection
C-Series camera owners can quickly print Kodak 4 x 6-inch pictures at home with just one touch in as little as 60 seconds, using the Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock Plus Series 3. (Printer dock not included--must be purchased separately.) The Series 3 printer docks are the first to support the new Imagelink print system, working with latest EasyShare cameras and other manufacturers' compatible cameras. The EasyShare printer docks also transfer pictures to a connected computer, and recharge the camera's batteries. Pictures made from EasyShare printer docks are vibrant, borderless, waterproof, stain resistant, and will last a lifetime, under typical photo album display conditions.

The C-Series cameras include Kodak EasyShare software for Windows and Macintosh systems, a part of the innovative, award-winning Kodak EasyShare digital photography system--consisting of cameras, snapshot printers, services, docks, software, inkjet and thermal photo papers, and accessories--makes taking, organizing, sharing, and printing high quality digital pictures effortless.
