The Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS is a small and attractive compact point-and-shoot. With angular lines it pleases the eye, although the slick plastic means it might fall out of your hand a bit too easily.
The front of the Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS is clean and simple. On the right you have the 35mm -105mm, f/3.1 - f/5.7 lens with 3x optical zoom. To the left of it is an auto focus assist lamp. At the upper left corner is the slim flash and directly to the left is a pinhole microphone.
The front is clean and simple.
The back of the M1093 IS is dominated by the 3-inch LCD display. To the right of the display are your controls. At the top is a zoom toggle. Beneath that is the speaker. Near the bottom is a joystick control with the Review and Menu buttons sitting above it and the Delete and Share buttons below.
The joystick used for menu navigation is a little fiddly.
*There's nothing on the left side of the Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS, but on the right side you find a wrist strap loop in the middle, a mini USB port near the bottom and a DC-in jack at the top for an optional power adapter. Neither of these ports has a cover.
*We recommend you put a wrist strap
in that loop to avoid drops.
The top of the M1093 IS has four buttons. Arrayed from right to left these are Shutter, Mode, Flash and Power. That is all.
The shutter button on the left is the only button of any size on the M1093 IS.
On the bottom you will find the tripod mount, the ever-present Kodak dock port and a door that covers the battery and memory card slots.
