The Kodak EasyShare C875 is an inexpensive compact camera, but it packs many features. The Kodak EasyShare C875 takes 8Mp shots and has a long, 5X optical zoom lens. You get a large, bright 2.5in LCD screen and numerous scene modes to help you quickly choose the right setting for your particular subject and lighting condition.

The Kodak EasyShare C875's included software - together with Kodak's EasyShare Gallery website — simplifies the process of emailing and sharing images. The Kodak EasyShare C875 comes with an adaptor plate that can connect the camera to Kodak's optional EasyShare Camera Dock for charging the battery and performing one-touch uploading of photos to your PC. The adaptor also lets you dock the camera to Kodak snapshot printers.

The conveniently arranged controls work well, and the Kodak EasyShare C875's screen displays plenty of explanatory messages as you use the controls. However, the Kodak EasyShare C875's thumb-operated joystick for navigating menus and making onscreen selections can be difficult to get used to. On the plus side, a built-in orientation sensor automatically rotates images from portrait to landscape and back again, so they appear in the correct layout on the Kodak EasyShare C875's LCD panel.

Several of the Kodak EasyShare C875's advanced features will appeal to experienced photographers. When the mode dial is in the PASM position, you can choose from among program, aperture-priority, shutter-priority, and full manual modes, although this does add a step to the more common practice of making the mode options available on the mode dial.

In addition, you can use the Kodak EasyShare C875's exposure bracketing to ensure optimal balance between shadows and highlights. A histogram display provides exposure feedback while you compose your shot, and a custom mode lets you save your favorite manual settings.

In testing, the Kodak EasyShare C875's exposure and contrast of both a still-life shot and a flash photo of a mannequin looked well balanced, with bright and accurate colors. There was little distortion, although several test shots could have been sharper. Overall, the Kodak EasyShare C875 earned average scores for image quality from a jury.

The Kodak EasyShare C875 comes with 32MB of internal storage and an SD card slot, but no bundled memory card. The box does include a pair of AA oxy-alkaline batteries, but these lasted a paltry 73 shots in battery tests. The camera can also run on a CRV3 lithium battery or on rechargeable AA cells.
