The EASYSHARE C533 zoom combines Kodak's hallmark ease-of-use, quality and value, making it possible for entry-level picture takers to capture, share, organize and print pictures. The EASYSHARE C533 is an affordable 5.0 megapixel digital camera with a 1.8-inch color LCD screen and a KODAK 3X optical zoom lens.

The EASYSHARE C533 uses the exclusive KODAK Color Science image-processing chip for phenomenal image quality with rich color and accurate skin tones. Twelve programmed scene modes (e.g., party, fireworks, children) and three color modes (color, sepia, and black & white) help capture the best shot with the least effort.

The C533 also integrates Kodak's Share button with its 'favorites' feature for storing multiple pictures in an on-camera digital photo album. Each picture can then be shared anytime on the camera's 1.8-inch LCD display. For capturing more than just still pictures, the camera also features 640x480 @ 11fps JPEG video capture and playback.


Easyshare C533 Features:

  • 5.0 megapixel (effective) CCD for prints up to 20 x 30 inches
  • 3x Kodak Retinar optical zoom with 37-111mm coverage (35mm equivalent)
  • Kodak Color Science technology for proper exposure, white balance and color saturation
  • 1.8-inch color LCD display
  • 640x480 movie mode @ 11fps with audio
  • Auto, Movie and 17 Scene exposure modes
  • TTL Metering: Center-weighted
  • Long time exposure shutter speeds from 0.5 to 4 seconds
  • Built-in flash with digitally enhanced red-eye reduction mode
  • 16MB internal memory + SD/MMC card storage
  • Powered by 2 AA batteries or CR-V3 battery
  • Auto-Connect USB for hassle-free downloads
  • Imagelink and PictBridge enabled for direct printing
  • Optional Easyshare Camera Dock and Printer Dock Series 3


The Easyshare C533 (US$179 MSRP) will be available worldwide beginning in June 2006
