Kodak EasyShare C653
Kodak today made a late entry into the pre-CES announcements with its EasyShare C653 point-and-shoot camera. Geared to basic users, the 6.1-megapixel camera uses its namesake EasyShare button to streamline transferring photos to a computer or printer, and can simulate image stabilization through a digital anti-blur mode. The camera's sensor is paired with a 3X optical lens and 2.4-inch LCD, and can achieve a relatively high ISO 1250 sensitivity, according to Kodak. A panorama stitch mode assists in creating wide-angle shots. The C653 is powered by AA batteries and ships today for $130.
