Review of Kodak Easy Share M1093 IS
23 May 2009
Summary: The Kodak M1093 IS offers good quality low ISO images (which, yes, you could probably stretch to a print size of 30x40) that's easy to use, has some cool scene modes and a good quality build. But I cannot help feeling it is little more than average not really offering anything that different.
Pros: Scene modes, Ease of use, Price.
Cons: Poor high ISO performance, Poor battery performance.
Conclusion: Kodak's EasyShare M1093 IS delivers much more than you'd expect from a $160 pocket camera, including a large LCD and HD video recording. An incredible value, it's our latest Editors' Choice budget point and shooter.
Pros: Affordable. Terrific image quality. Large 3-inch LCD. In-camera battery charging via USB. 720p30 HD video capture.
Cons: Noticeable shutter lag. Recycle times increase dramatically after multiple shots. Proprietary USB port.
Summary: In daylight the M1093 is capable of good results, but it doesn’t cope well in low light. The slow performance, fiddly handling and annoying default mode are big handicaps but it has some good features and is a solid little performer.
Excerpt: The Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS is an ultra-compact
camera that packs a 10 Megapixel CCD, 3X optical zoom lens, optical image stabilization,
3-inch LCD, and a high definition movie mode.
Pros: Decent photo quality, if you stick to small prints and low ISO sensitivities, Good value for the money, Ultra-compact, well built body; comes in three colors, Sensor-shift image stabilization, Large, sharp 3-inch LCD display (though see issues below), Smart Capture mode picks a scene mode for you...
Cons: Noise reduction smudges fine details, mottles the sky, and gives images an overall soft look; colors tend to be oversaturated, Redeye a big problem; countermeasures did not work in my tests, Poor HD video quality, Low light focusing not always accurate, Weak flash, Image stabilizer not available ...
Excerpt: The Kodak Easyshare M1093 is one of the simplest ultra-compact cameras to use. If you're looking for a hassle-free point-and-shoot option, this is a worthy candidate. With an emphasis on Smart Capture mode, the only downside happens to be the limited manual functions.
