The Kodak EasyShare Sport does'nt offer much other than its ability to take a beating, but satisfactory performance makes it a viable option for the clumsy or outdoorsy who need a budget camera.
The Kodak EasyShare Sport C123 is not really expected to amaze performance-wise. It’s a low-budget, rough-and-tumble point-and-shoot, with underwater capability as its main highlight and selling point. This hunk of camera is designed to take a trip down the river and like it.
Kodak perfectly outlines the role that the C123 is destined to play in advertisements on the camera’s product page: a mud-splattered EasyShare Sport is dipped into the water, with the “waterproof 3.0 meters” emblazoned around its lens clearly shining through the grime.
The Sport has brawn but little finesse, and there’s not much to the shooter when one looks past its underwater capabilities. Kodak has integrated its “Share” button onto the device, a proprietary feature making its way to many of the company’s lower level consumer cameras. Outside of toughness, submarine performance, and this share button, the C123 has little to boast about. Are these features enough to make the camera a good choice for anyone? Read on as we push the EasyShare Sport C123 to its limits.
