Kodak Easyshare C663

The Easyshare C663 is equipped with a high quality 3x aspheric all-glass Kodak Retinar optical zoom lens with a 34--102 mm f/2.7--4.6 (35mm film equivalent) focal length coverage. The lens retracts into the camera when powered down and is protected by a built in lens shutter.

Auto focus is handled by a contrast detect TTL system with multi-zone and center zone options and single AF or continuous AF modes. The Normal focus range is: 24 in. (0.6 m) -- Infinity, 2 -- 28 in. (0.05 -- 0.7 m) in macro/wide, 9 -- 28 in. (0.22 -- 0.7 m) in macro/tele and 33 ft (10 m) -- Infinity in landscape.

The Audio-Video Out cable for viewing on a TV set is also connected here. The video signal is selectable for NTSC or PAL. On the other side of the camera is a DC IN jack for an optional AC power supply.

The C663 has ~32MB of internal memory and a SD memory card slot, no card is supplied with the camera. Images, movies and sound recordings can be copied from internal memory to SD card or vice-versa. We recommend the purchase of at least a 256MB SD card (or 1GB if doing a lot of movies).

The C663 is powered by two AA type batteries; alkaline, NiMH or lithium. Or you can use one of the CR-V3 type lithium batteries. We recommend the use of rechargeable NiMH AA type for economy, power and the environment. However, if you use your camera infrequently or in cold temperatures, the CR-V3 type is the best choice.

It can also be powered by the optional KODAK Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery KAA2HR that is bundled with the KODAK EASYSHARE Camera and Printer Docks.
