Almost nothing about the EasyShare Sport C123 stands out, and it has a number of faults and substandard features that make it difficult to recommend. The small screen, the voracious appetite for batteries, the long delay after capturing an image, slow processing times… the list goes on.
The C123 still has a niche however, and could be a good camera for the right person under the right circumstances. It is tough, and I knocked it around a bit during the review and submerged it in plenty of bodies of water, and it’s still photographing as well as it ever was. It’s just unfortunate that that’s not saying too much.
The EasyShare Sport has a very low ceiling. Still, as an $80 investment, it’s not a bad option for someone on a budget who finds themselves destroying weaker cameras. It has basic point-and-shoot functionality, and some decent attributes, and it (and all of its flaws) should dependably survive the bumps, dust, and watery immersion that life sometimes unexpectedly (or expectedly) delivers.
