Though simplicity is one of the most prized qualities in everything, be it humans or machines, standards cannot be compromised on. Especially in case of gadgets, they show the levels of seriousness that goes into making that gadget; because, before they know it, someone or other who considers himself or herself a critic will be ready to write it down and say that the manufacturer in question has let consumers down. But with the Kodak Easyshare M1033, the critics will have little to complain about as this 10.1 mp and 3x zoom simple camera comes with features that most high quality cameras come at.Design and Functioning
For a first look, it comes across as one simple ultra compact camera that is small enough to be slipped into the pocket. It bears an easy to grip design and its finishing is rather matte, unlike the shiny ones that seem to reflect more light than they capture. The Kodak Easyshare M1033 comes in colours like Gunmetal Grey, Metallic Silver, Devil’s Red, Fuchsia Pink and Midnight Black. The Smart Capture mode integrates in it, scene and face detection, optimized auto ISO, and a broader dynamic range among other things, so the user need not worry about a setting to take a decent picture. This mode also applies Kodak's PerfectTouch technology to help improve detail and contrast. In general this system works, producing fine photos regardless of subject or lighting conditions. The Kodak Easyshare M1033 also has 22 Scene modes that the user can switch to in seconds. These include standards like portrait and landscape as well as things like in-camera panorama (left to right and right to left), candle light, panning, and blur reduction. The Program mode gives the user slightly more control for exposure compensation and metering, color (natural, low, black and white, sepia), white balance, and ISO. It's nice to have, though I'm not sure it's wholly necessary. It contains 32MB of internal memory and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
