Record Mode Screens & Menus



Note: Please excuse the quality of the screen shots as the M1093 IS only outputs video when used with an optional accessories, like the Kodak EasyShare Camera Dock. Therefore, we had to photograph them off of the LCD.

'Smart' record mode is designed for effortless shooting. This is an intelligent, fully automatic, exposure mode that analyzes the subject that is framed, then determines what is the best mode to use; like Macro shown above. It accomplishes this by using these three tasks: Intelligent scene detection, capture control and image processing.

When you half-press the shutter to achieve focus and exposure lock, the AF marks will shrink and turn green around the area of intended focus.

This includes ISO sensitivity, White balance, focus mode, color mode, etc. Here you can see icons for the exposure mode being used (P for Program), flash is set to Auto, image size (10.0MP), number of images (1274), memory being used (SD card), exposure compensation (0.0) and the ISO setting (Auto).
