Kodak C875 Review
Features & Controls
The Easyshare C875 is equipped with a high quality 5x all-glass SCHNEIDER-KREUZNACH VARIOGON lens with a 37-185 mm (35 mm equiv.) f/2.8-4.4, 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: normal-wide: 2.0 ft (0.6 m)-infinity, normal-tele: 3.3 ft (1.0 m)-infinity, macro-wide: 4 in.-2.3 ft (0.1-0.7 m), macro-tele: 2.3-3.3 ft (0.7-1.0 m).
The built-in speedlight has a shooting range of approx. 2.0-13.5 ft (0.6-4.1 m) at wide, ISO 200 ; 2.0-8.5 ft (0.6-2.6 m) at tele, ISO 200 and can be set
for Auto Flash, Digitally Enhanced Red-Eye Reduction, Fill Flash or Disabled.
The indoor/outdoor 2.5-inch wide view color LCD has 115,000 pixels of resolution (480 x 240). It can also be used as a live viewfinder and for viewing your images and movies and accessing the menu screens.
On the back is the Zoom lens controls, in playback they function as the zoom-in and zoom-out controls for inspecting the magnified image. Next is the
Delete button, and the LCD/Info/Help button which turns the LCD on/off and controls the amount of data that is displayed over the image. The 4-way Joystick selector
is for navigating menus and selecting pictures. Push on the Joystick for the OK button to accept menu selections. The Menu button calls up and dismisses the menu system. The
Review button enables the playback mode. Tag any picture using the exclusive Share button and it will be ready to print or e-mail later.
On top are the Drive Mode and Flash Mode buttons and the combination shutter release and
Mode Dial with positions for selecting Favorites, Custom, PASM, Power On/Off, Auto,
Scene, and Movie mode.
The interface connector is a combination port to connect the USB cable for downloading
images to Mac and Windows computers or to a PictBridge enabled photo printer. 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 bottom is a DC IN jack for
an optional AC power supply.
The C875 has ~32MB of internal memory and a SD memory card slot capable of using SD/MMC cards. 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 C875 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.
