Kodak EASYSHARE C360 Zoom
- Nice image quality, light and easy to carry
- Flimsy, lacking in features, horrible lag between shots
Recommended for brand new photographers who are after crisp, clean images.
Price$ 399.00 (AUD)
Essentially an upgrade to the C340, the C360 packs in more features, more options but still suffers from some of the same problems as its predecessor. Virtually identical in shape and size to the C340, this model is constructed in the same way: it is largely plastic, and feels weak and flimsy. The majority of functions are accessed via the function wheel, which doesn't feel like it would last through vigorous use.
It has a great menu system, however, as well as high-quality pictures. Unfortunately, the horrible lag between shots we saw in the C340 has returned, and it makes taking multiple shots a massive pain. It can take as long as 4.5 seconds for the flash to properly recycle, which severely limits the user's ability to take rapid shots.
The preset modes available in the C360 make it a very flexible option. It has 17 scene modes and five colour modes. Couple that with a great continuous shot function (up to 30 shots), and you have a very decent camera for brand-new photographers.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
