Kodak EasyShare M1033 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

TERRIBLE (Debbie — 10/06/2010)
Just like everyone else here writing a review, the camera turns on and then shuts off. I too purchased a battery only to find out it isn't the battery. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Good camera, could be better (chris — 05/25/2010)
I purchased this camera back in 2008 and I'm quite happy with it. It didn't have any problems so far, no lock ups or anything of that sort. It does take good pictures, I like the fact that I can set the aperture time when using a tripod for night photos, If you combine this with a low iso setting, the result is daylight, no other way to describe it. Great definition on good lighting conditions, not a fan of using a flash so, can't say a lot on dark ones, just that using it in Auto mode without flash, you get a lot of noise and blur sometimes (expected for this type of camera). I didn't rate it as excellent as I know that there are much better cameras for the money, giving it a mediocre price/product ratio and I have seen this particular model having lots of problems on other reviews. Hope it helps

out of warranty ? (Christy Newman — 01/06/2010)

Turn on camera & it shuts down. Have sent in twice before.
Kodak will fix again only if I pay to have it fixed. I feel it should have been corrected the 1st time ! ! ! !

died after nine months. (Debra Fedak — 01/01/2010)

My camera also quite. Nine months old and I now own a $175.00 paperweight. I will never buy another Kodak. And on top of this when I tried to contact Kodak they offered me a re-furbished camera for $150.00. what a rip-off. So if you want to buya new camera every year or so, go with a Kodak, otherwise do yourself a favor a buy a good camera.

Powered off and won't power up again (Gary Rasmussen — 09/10/2009)

I found several similar complaints as mine where the Kodak M1033 would freeze up. I tried replacing the battery. (This worked for a while then, it started freezing up again.) I tried cleaning the contacts for the battery inside the camera (not an easy place to get to btw). No luck. Finally, I contacted Kodak and they accepted it into their repair center under warranty. Hopefully, they can fix it. I have been less than impressed with it so far though.

Excellent Digital Camera HQ (Harry — 08/16/2009)

The Kodak M1033 on DigitalCamera-HQ is excellent i love this one so much, Before i Sony 7.2 MP camera but iam not satisfied with that. I am very much satisfied with the 10 MP and the picture quality it gives, the 3 inch LCD display is very good, The picture quality is too good, The Lithium-ion batteries holds the battery for long time

Love this camera! (ashley — 08/13/2009)

The kodak m1033 takes super crystal clear pics the second you press the button! I also love how sleek the screen is, and easy the whole camera is to use. Unfortunately my dad dropped it in the water when we went canoeing :( but i loved so much compared to all the other crap cameras out there, i am going to buy it again.

Kodak M1033 (Sheila — 08/10/2009)

After 2 years of trying to figure this camera out, I finally
decided it was the camera, not me. I could not get pictures
to delete even after asking experts for assistance. The
battery would not stay charged, even after getting it checked at the photo shop. Sometimes it worked and
sometimes it didn't. Finally it just stopped working at all.
I will stay away from Kodak in the future.

Not what is cracked up to be (amy — 08/08/2009)

I bought this as I wanted to be able to charge with an a/c adapter. I hated the idea of all the batteries my last camera needed. This one was great for the first 8 months. Then it started to lose charge after only a few pics. Now it will not even turn on for more than a second .Kodak offers no help. They want to charge $80 for repair and $49.00 for s/H!!!

Don't buy this camera! (Amber — 07/30/2009)

Of course these people think this camera is great for the first few months, I did too until it broke! I had owned it for just over 1 year which means that Kodak was no longer obligated to uphold their warranty. I used this camera maybe 20 times in that one year (I'm not ususally the picture taker) and it started showing a lens error and now will not even turn on unless it is plugged in. I have never dropped it or gotten it wet. I took very good care of this stupid camera and now I am forced to buy a new one. Never again would I purchase even a Kodak product and I very strognly urge you to do the same if you are interested in purchasing a new camera.

Rip Off (Gail — 06/08/2009)

I have only had this camera for 5 months and have had to send it in twice for repair!!

great picture quality - dodgy sound though (cath — 05/03/2009)

i love this camera!! it takes the instant you press the button with amazing quality photos. it is a bit complicated to edit settings but once you get the hang of it its fine.

the only bad thing is the sound level on the camera, but this is fine once put onto a computer.

i got mine for just £80 so definitely worth it, plus for just £17 i got three years accidental cover so it was all amazing value for money

good camera - some problems (J VanBuren — 03/18/2009)

The picture quality is great - the large LCD screen is great - but recently keeps "locking up" - won't turn on or off and the screen shows only white and it won't respond to any button pushed. Easily fixed by removing battery and reinserting it, but irritating!!

This is an Excellent Camera (Jesse Wood — 03/03/2009)

Good pictures, but has problems (Becky — 01/16/2009)

Being seventeen, I find this camera to be excellent for taking pictures with my friends, on trips etc. The screen is big, the pictures are nice, and the panoramic feature is interesting. But I have experienced a problem when charging. I will completely charge the camera and then it will tell me it's not charged, or refuse to turn on/ off or freeze. This problem has been occuring more often lately, and I'm afraid I may have to purchase a new camera or return this one.

Be careful. (junne — 01/05/2009)

This camera is amazing when it works. Great picture quality, easy to use, amazing zoom. But it may malfunction in the most difficult situations. I took mine to the beach for a bonfire and as soon as I got there, it began acting up on me. It said it was out of batteries when I had charged it for a full day. It would shut off automatically. None of the buttons would work. It still does the same thing, and I have to take it back and get it replaced and I have only had it for a week and a half. My friend has the same exact camera, and she took hers to a concert and it did the same thing. It's annoying because these are events that you want to remember, and it's frustrating when you can't capture the moment. Imagine being at your child's school play and you aren't able to take pictures because of your camera. Yes, it's annoying.

Well worth the money (owen — 12/31/2008)

Iv had this camera about a month now and i am very impresed with it. Very simple to operate. 3inch lcd screen witch is very nice, exellent picture quality, exelent iso capture. the one tflaw is the sound is very quiet when taking videos but other than that an all around very good camera for the price tag.

e-mailing photos is almost impossible (cardken — 11/23/2008)

As a novice, the instructions from Kodak print and communications center is non-functional. No one at Kodak can answer a question. I would not buy another Kodak camera because the support and easy to understand instructions are not available. All I need to do is get the photos from the M1033 to my computer so I can e-mail them. I need help due to this being part of my job.

M1033 Serious Design Flaw in Firmware - Warning (dizzie — 09/03/2008)

Let me preface this by saying that I have really enjoyed using my m1033 over the past months. The image quality is ok, the size is compact, and it's great having HD video capability in my pocket.

That being said, there is a serious flaw in the firmware that puts you at risk of losing picture and movie files stored on your SD card, particularly if you are a Mac user.

It should be noted that there are also some minor operational issues that myself and others have experienced, most commonly that of the camera locking up on occasion. This has happened to me perhaps 5-7 times over the past few months and is easily remidied by removing and replacing the battery. Another flaw is that now and then, a completed movie is unplayable on the camera, yet is playable on the Kodak HDTV dock or computer software such as VLC.

The BIG DANGER, though, is in utilizing a card reader (as many of us do) in order to transfer your pictures to your computer. On a Mac, the "Finder" (file browser) inserts many hidden files on your SD card, which you can see if you look at the card on a Windows computer or in the Terminal on Mac. These files evidently give the camera MAJOR problems when you insert it back in the camera. However, the problems do not seem to manifest themselves until you shoot a movie. I've had the camera corrupt every single picture and movie on the card through this design flaw. Another time, I got lucky and only about 70% of the files were corrupted.

This is a SERIOUS problem that Kodak needs to correct in a firmware update. My Kodak Z740 never had this problem.

As a workaround in the meantime, I highly reccommend using a free little utility called CleanUp smb mess, available at . It removes all of the hidden files put on the card by your mac. I keep it in my dock and use it all the time! Once you drag your disk over it's icon and eject it, you won't have any problems with corrupt files. But, should you forget to do so as I have a few times, kiss those precious "Kodak moments" goodbye!!!

This is a GREAT camera! (Kenette Krasuski — 08/12/2008)

I purchased the camera because of it's small size. I needed a "pocket" sized camera for a vacation trip. I absolutely love the 3" crystal-clear display!! The pictures are crisp and clear! Red-eye adjustment is made automatically!! I've not found that with any other "point & shoot" camera (this is my 3rd digital camera). I recommend it highly!!

great camera* (Gary Campbell — 07/08/2008)

This camera is quick to shoot and takes very clear colorful pictures. the auto feature works excellent as do the options when different lighting conditions exist. I took it on vacation to the Canadian Rockies and have many fabulous and quality pictures of mountains, wildlife, etc.
*Here is the but: Kodak did not furnish a cable to hook up the camera to a TV. When I tried to purchase an A-V cable from Kodak, I was informed they didn't have a cable for my M1033, nor were they carrying an adapter to fit A-V cables for other Kodak series cameras. This is a huge design and production flaw by Kodak. I tried several times through Customer Service at Kodak and they all gave me the same unfortunate conclusion. help.

First digital camera owned (Burch — 07/01/2008)

For years I have wanted a digital camera but was unsure because of the huge selection. This was an impulse HSN purchase, but this camera is wonderful, large screen and crystal clear pictures besides ease of use. I sent my pictures to friends and they said they were outstanding. Now they want this camera.
