Kodak Easyshare M1033 Reviews
CNET reviews the Kodak Easyshare M1033 and writes;
“The good: Solid photo quality for its class; well-rounded if rudimentary feature set; slim, sturdy body; simple operation. The badThe bad: Lackluster video; only a three-shot burst. The bottom line: Kodak’s EasyShare M1033 is a better-than-average budget ultracompact.”
Steve’sDigicams reviews the Kodak Easyshare M1033 and writes;
“While we have some issues with the camera’s shooting performance, mainly with the ridiculous buffer flush times, this camera still offers great image quality, awesome high ISO performance, nice video results, and a very intelligent and useful Smart capture mode.”
CNET.asia reviews the Kodak Easyshare M1033 and writes;
“At ISO 100, there was virtually no noise in the image. But we bumped it up to 400 and tints of digital artifacts were present in the shadow region, though still within an acceptable range. The biggest change was at ISO 800, when the shots started to look like smudged watercolor paintings..”
CNET.uk reviews the Kodak Easyshare M1033 and writes;
“The Kodak’s 10-megapixel pictures look pretty good: bursting with colour, healthy (if slightly ruddy) skin tones and balanced exposure. Movies are similarly lively, giving smooth, bright playback… Overall, a fine everyday camera for novices, but anyone with an itchy trigger-finger should look to spend more.”
PCMag reviews the Kodak Easyshare M1033 and writes;
” Image quality was, for the most part, excellent. My still-life shots were uniform and vivid. Outdoor testing proved to be exceptional, as well, with accurate and bright colors in daylight shots.”

Kodak Easyshare M1033 Press Release
The range-topping M1033 (pictured in its “bronze” form, colors vary between markets) is a 10MP compact with 3X optical zoom. It has a 3 inch (7.6 cm), screen designed to have a wide viewing angle, so it can be used in “just about any environement.,” according to the manufacturer. Impressively, the M1033 can record 720i HD format video (and compress it as MPEG-4) – that’s 1280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps. It features a 35-105mm (in 35 equivalent terms) lens and up to ISO 3200 at full resolution. Stills can be displayed at 1080i resolution (1920 x 1080) using the Easyshare HDTV Dock available seperately. It is expected to be available in March 2008.
Further down the range come the M893 IS, an 8.1MP ultra-compact with a 34-102mm (35mm equivalent), f/2.9-5.2 optically stabilized lens. It can display its stills at 720p or 1080i but cannot shoot HD video. Sensitivity rises to ISO 1600. It is expected to arrive in April.
The M863 and M763 are 8.2 and 7.0MP, 3X optical zoom compacts. Both feature HD playback of stills and record at up to ISO 1600. They are expected to arrive in January and February 2008 respectively.
In common with the latest additions to its ‘V’ and ‘Z’ ranges, the company says the latest models are designed to fit with Kodak’s “you press the button, we do the rest,” ethos.
