What You Need to Know: Kodak EasyShare C123 Review


For the past decade or so, there has been a massive influx in entry level digital cameras for under $100. These cameras are perfect for small children, teenagers and those looking for a quick and cheap solution to their photography needs. These sub-$100 compact cameras get the job done but because the price is so low, the manufacturers needed to cut corners. Kodak, Canon, Nikon and pretty much all the other major players in this space have a camera in this segment, but this article will be tailored around our Kodak EasyShare C123 review.

The first thing that we noticed when we got our hands on the C123 was its simplistic design. At SimpleCameraReviews.com, we are used to seeing cheap, plastic cameras that when dropped, break. This Kodak however is fairly solid, but you’re still going to have that plastic feel. This slightly bulky camera is also going to be difficult to put in a normal sized pocket, so you might want to bring a back pack or purse to store it.

Your color choices include classic black and a playful blue. Because this camera is a digital camera, you’re going to find a nice color screen outback, as well as some buttons to navigate your way through the options.

Now to the more notable parts of the Kodak C123: this camera has roughly 12.5 megapixels which will allow you to obtain fairly large image sizes. This is handy because you will be able to zoom into your picture should you want to crop any part of it. Unfortunately, since this is an entry-level camera, if you do zoom in for a crop job, you’re going to notice grainy images as well as blurred edges because of its lack of image stabilization. While it has an autofocus feature, it is still prone to shaky looking images.
