The EasyShare CX6330 zoom digital camera is ideal for taking pictures that can be made into crisp, sharp prints up to 11 x 14 inches. Multiple scene modes such as a sport, night, landscape and close-up make it simple to shoot under various conditions. It provides 3.1MP resolution, a 3X optical Kodak Retinar aspheric all-glass zoom lens, 3.3X Advanced Digital Zoom, exclusive Kodak Color Science technology for outstanding image fidelity, multi-zone auto focus, and auto picture rotation. The camera also captures continuous digital video with audio, and incorporates the popular sharing features common across EasyShare products.

A press of the CX6330 camera's red-jeweled "Share" button allows a person to immediately select printing, e-mailing, and mark as favorite options for each picture, and on-camera sharing is made simple with a 1.6-inch, high-resolution LCD screen. In addition, the camera's new album feature, when used in conjunction with Kodak EasyShare software v3.0, allows categorization of pictures right on the camera.

Kodak EasyShare CX6330 Zoom

The optional Kodak EasyShare 6000 camera dock addresses two of the biggest objections to digital cameras: easy connection and battery charging.

Once the camera is placed in the dock, pictures are automatically uploaded to the computer and the dock recharges the camera's battery pack. The system also includes software that allows users to connect to the Internet to e-mail or print their pictures. EasyShare makes picture sharing as easy as picture taking: one-button simple.
