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.
the image quality with the EasyShare M590 is pretty good with outdoor photos.
As seems to be a common theme with beginner-level Kodak cameras, the image quality with the Kodak EasyShare M590 is pretty good, and this camera is extremely easy to use. Its response times leave something to be desired, though. Although you'll have some unuseable photos with the M590, this camera certainly does an OK job with image quality compared to other sub-$150 cameras. Those response times can be a bit frustrating, though.
All this plus high quality imagery for an extremely attractive price makes the EasyShare M590 well nigh irresistible.
The wafer-thin Kodak EasyShare M590 is claimed to be the slimmest 5x compact digital currently on the market and, together with its stylish good looks and impressive shooting modes, its superb Share capability should assure it a legion of fans.
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.
