    Hi all



    I've searched this NG for info and can't find anything about the C633 so I'm
    hoping someone can help



    Looking at possibly getting a C633 with a G600 printer dock for my father.
    He's in his late 60's and has no interest in "photography" apart from taking
    snaps of grandchildren etc and printing off the ones he likes



    So unless the camera or printer are total dogs, ease of use, reliability and
    printer cartridge costs are the main issues, can anyone tell me the good and
    bad parts of this outfit?



    Thanks



    Tim

    I have not used the C633 but it looks similar to the other inexpensive,
    simple to use, lower end Kodaks that I have bought for my kids and wife.
    Those cameras, for what they are, take pretty decent pictures under good
    lighting conditions or when using a flash. Nothing spectacular, of
    course, but if you are taking pictures outside in bright light or within
    4 or 5 feet of a flash, they aren't bad. THey are great for the kids who
    have a blast with them and don't care if some of the pictures don't come
    out perfect.

    I imagien this camera is probably a bit better as the ones I bought the
    kids are fixed focus, no zoom, under $90 models.

    Hi Ron thanks for your help

    One of the reaons I posted here is that the camera I'm looking at is a 633 &
    all the online reviews I found are for the 663, the specs on the camera seem
    the same but I wanted to see if they were the same camera maybe with a
    different number in thr european market, which seems unlikely, or if the 633
    was some kind of cheapo sibling

    Hello, Tim:

    I own six Kodak digicams and three camera docks, and have been very
    satisfied with all of them. The C633 isn't one of mine, but, I'm
    confident that your father would also be pleased by the quality of
    its snapshots.

    Now, a word of warning: In this newsgroup (as well as others), you'll
    often encounter anti-Kodak rhetoric. Please, don't be discouraged by
    such snobbish attitudes, and always try to remain objective.

    Good luck!

    Hello, Minnesøtti:

    What did Kodak ever do to you...steal your lollipops? :p Virtually
    all manufacturers (yes, even Canon and Nikon) pump out "point-n-click"
    cameras, which demand "no mental activity to do pictures." Therefore,
    picking on Kodak, makes absolutely no sense.

    Besides, the company's "P" series of "super zoom" digicams are quite
    competitive, with those from Panasonic and others. The "P" is
    for performance, and Kodak definitely delivers it, in these more
    sophisticated models.

    Hello, Tim:
    Hi all

    Thanks to the....... errrr lively debate here I've just ordered one :)

    BTW as to the P&S v's the big guns debate that kind of raised its head in
    the thread, almost all the pictures on my site below were taken with a Sony
    DSC-T1
    Apart from the noise in the pics I thought it did pretty well on my travels,
    no good for big prints but ok for snapshots to share on the net
    The St Mary Redcliff shots were taken with a D70s which I'm struggling to
    get to grips with :)

    Thanks again

    Tim

    Hello, Minnesøtti:

    Okay, then, no hard feelings. <g>

    PS: "Minnesøtti" is an interesting name; the "ø" makes it look rather
    Nordic. Here in the USA, there is a state called "Minnesota," where a
    large percentage of the native population is of Scandinavian descent.

    Every time I see Minnesøtti, I think of Minnesota! :-J

    Hello, Ron:

    You should've replied to Tim (who began this thread), instead of
    Minnesøtti.

    Dummy! ;-)

    Hello, Brian:

    My Kodak P850 (5MP, 12x optical) can zoom, while recording video.

    Hello, Ron:

    The P850 is pretty hefty, I'll grant you; yet, it's not significantly
    more expensive, than the average 5MP/optical zoom digicam.

    Especially, when its vast array of features is taken into account.
    That's what I'd call "added value," as the P850 packs a big bang for
    the buck.

    Hello, Ron:

    That's quite understandable. I, too, sometimes prefer my (relatively)
    compact Kodak DX3900, in spite of its paltry 2x optical zoom and
    3.1MP resolution. The P850 and DX6490 (4MP, 10x) can each become
    a bit of a drag, due to their bulkiness and rather more complex
    operations.
