The Kodak EasyShare C763 combines a seven megapixel CCD imager and a Kodak-branded 3x optical zoom lens with a fairly standard 35 - 105mm equivalent focal range. For framing images, there's a 2.5" LCD display but like many current models, the C763 has no optical viewfinder. Images are stored on Secure Digital / MultiMediaCards, or in 32MB of internal memory.

The Kodak C763 has 11 scene modes to help beginners achieve the results they're looking for without the need to understand subtleties like shutter speeds, apertures and the like. Scene modes provided are: portrait, night portrait, sports, snow, beach, backlight, fireworks, children, self-portrait, and party. The C763 determines exposures with a center-weighted TTL metering system, and offers 2.0EV of exposure compensation in 1/2EV increments. Four white balance settings are available including an auto mode, and ISO sensitivity is controlled automatically or manually, ranging from 80 to 800. (ISO 800 available only with 1.2 MP setting.) The EasyShare C763 also offers a movie mode, capturing VGA (640x480) clips at 15 fps, or QVGA (320x240) clips at 30 fps, both with audio. Movies are encoded in Motion-JPEG format.

Images and movies captured on the Kodak C763 are transferred to your computer over a USB 2.0 Full Speed connection, rather slower than the USB 2.0 High Speed connections offered on many cameras these days. Power comes from a custom 700 mAh Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery, and both a charger and AC adapter are included.

List pricing for the Kodak EasyShare C763 is set at US$179.95.
