Samsung Digimax U-CA5

 

Good recycle time. Good image quality in daylight shots.

Significant shutter lag. Confusing menus. Tiny LCD.

With a poor menu structure, small LCD, and noticeable shutter lag, this camera has little to recommend it.

Samsung Digimax U-CA 5

 

PC Mag reviews the Samsung Digimax U-CA 5 which they can only rate as a 'fair' camera. They write - 'We can't quibble with the 5.1MP Samsung Digimax U-CA 5's $250 price tag, but when it comes to features and performance, the camera disappoints. The...

Samsung Digimax U-CA5 Digital Camera Review

 

For those who receive the Samsung Digimax U-CA5 as a gift or purchase it on impulse -- the camera is capable of making decent pictures, but you'll have to work pretty hard for them.

Relatively quick, super sharp lens

Unintuitive menus, consistent tendency toward overexposure, and flat colors

For those who receive the Samsung Digimax U-CA5 as a gift or purchase it on impulse -- the camera is capable of making decent pictures, but you'll have to work pretty hard for them. For everyone else -- even though Samsung sweetens the deal by...

Big Things From a Little Camera

 

When I opened up my Christmas present about four years ago and saw that I had got a digital camera, I was so excited I that all I could really do was sit there and stare. Once I started to play around with the camera, after charging it up, I realized ...

Good picture quality, good options for modes, comes in good colors

Batteries drain even when camera's not in use. Certain modes are not necessary

Maybe a bit flimsy, small LCD

Excellent camera for the price!

 

I purchased this camera with hesitation because I couldn't find any reveiws online about it, but the salesperson at Costco where I purchased it ($199) told me I could try it out and return it if I was not pleased. So I bought it. The camera has 5.0 ...

Lightweight, compact, excellent quality prints, fun colors, easy and quick to take pictures
