It's a Snap
Kodak's newest EasyShare LS420 digital camera is the answer to digital-phobes' prayers. The pocket-size wonder is truly a no-brainer to use. Shoot what you want, put the camera on the docking station (included), hit a button, et voilà! Pictures are transferred and pop up in a slide-show window. Follow onscreen instructions to crop, add color, or fix red eyes. The camera comes with 8MB internal memory (takes about 49 low-res pictures), rechargeable battery, and carrying case. PC- and Mac-compatible ($299).
