Small, stylish, feature-rich
With picture quality as good as it is (despite the noise at low ISO speeds), we think the M5370 is a great little camera from Kodak and they need to make sure that all their future cameras have this image quality as a benchmark. Kodak have received criticism in the past for sub-standard cameras, but hopefully the M5370 is the start of a new breed that sees the company rising from the proverbial ashes.
Excellent noise performance throughout the ISO range
The M5370 shows a steady improvement on the M577 that we have previously tested. It is ready to take images a little quicker after switching on but there is still the occasional crashing when using continuous shooting. Although image detail isn't great for a 16 megapixel camera, noise performance is excellent throughout the ISO range and so is auto white-balance.
Image wise, results are a little soft. Normally Kodak colours are bright and warm but on the Touch M5370 we found them subdued. For low-light photography, stay at ISO800 or below to avoid issues. Although it's not as revolutionary as other cameras here and delivering snapshot-type images the Touch M5370 puts today's technology in reach of those on a budget, although now that Kodak has filed for bankruptcy in the US, this could be the last Kodak camera you buy.
Good value for money
The Easyshare Touch offers some unique features, such as the ability to tag photos to be shared on the web in camera and different film effects from those commonly featured on compact digital cameras. If you are looking for a camera with a touch-screen then this camera is well priced given its decent image quality. The lag between switching the camera on and it being ready to take pictures becomes annoying, quickly, and don't even bother using the camera in continuous shooting mode.
Image quality is pretty good in all lighting conditions.
If you are someone who appreciates the stylish, ultra compact models of digital cameras that seem to be available everywhere these days, you probably won't give Kodak's Z950 camera a second look. It's a blocky looking model (1.4 inches in thickness) and weighs nearly double (8.2 ounces) what some point and shoot cameras weigh.
However, if you ignore this camera because of looks, it would be unfortunate.
shots from the M1093 were sharp and showed no noticeable noise all the way up to ISO 800.
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.
sleek but powerful digital camera
The Kodak EasyShare M1093 is a nice compact entry-level digicam. While there were a few things that discouraged me, this camera does has the ability to capture pleasing images both indoors and out, and features one of the 'smartest' capture modes out there. With an MSRP of $199, I feel this model offers a good value for someone in the market for an inexpensive camera that can fit into their pocket/purse, whether for an adult or a teenager.
The M1093 IS tempts us with a nice sleek look yet chunky and sturdy to heft thanks to (almost) an all-metal build.
The Kodak M1093 IS offers good quality low ISO images that could stretch to a print size of 30 x 40-inches, at a push. It's easy to use too and has good build quality.
And although the 10-megapixel resolution looks a bit average now 14-megapixels and above seems to be the vogue, it's more than ample for most needs. If you're looking for a simple point and shoot that takes good quality (low ISO) images, then the M1093 IS could be the camera for you, though a spare battery might be advisable!
Good build and design
The Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS is available for a street price of Rs 10,000 and usually comes bundled with a carrying case and a 2 GB SD card.
What The M1093 has going for it are the great looks, build quality and the ease of use but the image capture is just about average and you could easily find a better performance camera in the same price range. Personally, I'd rather go for the Sony CyberShot W120 if I was looking for a good budget ultra compact camera
its image quality is outstanding.
The good news with the Kodak EasyShare M580 is that its image quality is outstanding. With its 14 megapixels of resolution, the M580 shoots sharp and bright photos that you can print at large sizes. Now the bad news. My Kodak EasyShare M580 review reveals that this camera's response times -- especially its shot to shot delays and shutter lag -- may cause some problems with shooting fast-moving subjects. The M580 does offer a burst mode to help with these problems, which is nice.
versatile yet compact digicam
The Kodak EasyShare M380 shows some improvement over the previous M series models, as they have added a more versatile lens and the Kodak Perfect touch helps to adjust the pictures inside the camera. Performance was also good, but the quality still needs a little improvement. The level of noise present in the photos is more than normal. With a MSRP of US$179.95, there are comparable cameras worth looking into, such as the Canon PowerShot A1100 IS.
