Samsung Digimax U-CA 3


Customisable animated 3D avatar power-on welcome screen, supports new CP1 disposable battery type, MPEG4 movie mode, close focus mode

To be honest, we didn't expect the Samsung U-CA 3 to be a top-end image quality contender ¨C Samsung's R&D dollars for this particular camera have been spent elsewhere. Picture quality isn't terrible in any department, but it's mostly pretty average....

Samsung Digimax U-CA3


This camera is a fun, relatively inexpensive, easy-to-use 3.2-megapixel camera. But its slow performance and mediocre image quality hold it back.

Samsung Digimax U-CA 3 review: Samsung Digimax U-CA 3


Samsung Digimax U-CA 3

Compact; solid macro capabilities; acceptable image quality; easy and fun to use; comes with animated avatar-creation software.

No burst mode; limited shooting modes; few manual adjustments; proprietary rechargeable battery sold separately.

Kids will love the camera's customizable animated start-up screen and easy operation, but advanced snapshot photographers will find its shooting options limited.

Samsung Digimax U-CA 3; Easy And Fun


My friend's 3-year-old opened her beauty shop in her parents' home.

I already knew from previous experience that the flash did a nice job. In fact, exposures made with the built-in flash proved very effective. Still, many cameras fall down on the job when it comes to mixing flash with the available light exposure. In...

Whether we like it or not, there are areas in life where ãimage is everything.ä And thatâs especially true amongst the younger crowd. It is thus with great dismay that, imagewise, some of the established players in the consumer electronics market all...

As far as actual camera features go, the trendy Samsung can hold its own. With a retail price of $229 it doesnât cost a lot, and you actually get quite a bit for your money. 3.2 megapixel doesnât set the world on fire these days, but itâs enough even...
