Kodak EasyShare C743 - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

Our Score:


User Score:

A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.


The wide angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 37mm. The full-size version of this image is only 1.1MB, very small for a 7MP camera.


The telephoto end is equivalent to 111mm.


Colour rendition is OK, but blotchy.


The poor quality metering system and the low dynamic range have burned out the highlights in this shot.

I have bought this camera, and really makes me remember the poor quality of the old but famous Sony MAVICA (I had one before, I think it was the MVC-FD73)...there´s something I still can´t understand about the KODAK C743...if having 7.3 megapixels, then why the pics have so low quality?

I always thought a "more-than-5-megapix" camera should have, at least, good quality shots...but this broke my classic way of thinking...

Anyone can explain, please, what´s the point (the main bad point) in this camera, that makes it´s shots so bad?...I read all but, as a non-expert in the world of digital cameras, cna´t still get it.

thank you a lot!

It's no good having even 7 megapixels, baxter if the lens or the other vitals are not up to snuff. I can't see Kodak making specially bad sensors to go in their cheaper cameras so in this case I suspect the lens is simply built down to a price and therefore responsible for the inferior image. If this camera were cheaper, it would be fine for those who want 6X4 prints and the ultimate simplicity of operation. In other words a "soccer mom's" camera!

Have a look at the images from a Kodak DX6490 which has FOUR megapixels and you'll see what I'm getting at.
