Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS review: Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS

Photo quality was very good for the M1093 IS' class; it performs best in bright lighting and outdoors, but suffers in low light and indoors. Below ISO 200, photos were reasonably sharp with good contrast and even exposure. There's a noticeable degradation between ISO 200 and ISO 400; aggressive noise suppression kicks in with serious blurring. I don't recommend printing them larger than 4x6 or cropping too much. Overall, colors are bright and natural. I did notice some mottling in large color fields--particularly blues--that seems to be caused by JPEG artifacts. Thankfully, it's only really visible when viewed at full size. If you plan to use your photos for prints below 8x10, online, or in a digital photo frame, chances are you'll never notice. Lastly, there is some modest distortion at the camera's widest angle.

Kodak gives you the ability to capture 720p high-definition video at 30 frames per second. Plus, you get use of the optical zoom, though you will hear the lens movement picked up by the mic. The video quality is very good as long as you keep the camera movement to a minimum.

The Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS isn't an extraordinary camera, but overall is very good at what it does and it looks good doing it.
