Excerpt: It’s light enough to hand around your neck, but with smaller cameras coming out, I don’t understand why Kodak made a big one. The casing is below average, and scratches easily. Since this camera is being used by 10 people, I don’t wonder that it has visible scratches on the surface. The zoom is excellent, as is the lens; and that’s about the two things that I liked about the camera. I hate handling this, and prefer to use my personal camera.
Summary: I picked the M1033 up at a local Best Buy, intending to replace my decrepit 3.3Megapixel Olympus. I wanted a small form-factor camera with high resolution, and passable video I could use so my wife wouldn't have to lug around our video camera for occasional use.
At first, I was excited, but the glamor wore off quickly. I would not recommend the device without SIGNIFICANT CAVEATS. Read on...
* Form factor: the camera is friggin tiny.
Summary: I received this as a present and was quite excited. It was easy to set up but I shouldn't have bothered. Firstly the large frame is out of proportion to the small picture. A previous review said that you don't notice the pixels if you're a long way away, but with this size of screen if you want to see anything of detail that's not an option.
Summary: Thia picture frame has no internal memory, so you can only watch your current pictures This write up does not reflect this, and I wasted a long time trying to sort it out, till I saw in small letters that the SV710 has no internal memory.
Summary: I could find no mention of the actual image resolution (how sharp it is) but the product description says "Pictures and videos are brilliant and sharp on the widescreen LCD". I tried hard to find resolution data, even on the Kodak site, with no luck. Turns out the picture quality is awful. It is very pixelated. My mobile phone has a far better resolution. I would say the pixels on the screen are about 1mm square. I can see the pixels from about 2ft away.
