Kodak EasyShare C513

Kodak on Tuesday broke a longstanding tradition in digital cameras with the EasyShare C513. The 5-megapixel compact is the first of Kodak's point-and-shoots to ever drop the traditional CCD for a CMOS sensor. A breakthrough from Kodak's own labs lets them use the lower-cost and more power efficient technology without compromising image quality compared to ordinary cameras; although ISO sensitivity is low with a range of just 80-200, the low noise of the sensor and software-driven image stabilization help produce clean images in most settings. A 3X zoom lens, 13 preset scene modes, and minor on-camera edits help beginners compose shots without turning to manual settings.

The C513 sports 640x480 video and audio-only recording modes and stores its files on either the built-in 16MB of memory or SD cards. Kodak begins shipping the C513 in August for just $99, considerably lower than the price of most small cameras without fixed-zoom lenses.
