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.

Your color choices include classic black and a playful blue.
