Samsung - Digimax V4


Samsung may not be one of the first names to spring to mind when you think of digital cameras, but the company has a good name for quality compact conventional cameras and now offers a wide ...

The Digimax V4 is a neat, well-specified, 4-megapixel, sub-compact digital camera, with comprehensive manual, semi-automatic and automatic control. Once you've mastered the buttons, it takes a well-balanced image.

Samsung Digimax V4 Digital Camera Camera


WHAT'S HOT: If you didn't spot the iridescent Samsung label on the back of the Digimax V4, you might easily mistake this camera for a Sony Cyber-shot. Like that camera series, the V4 has a long, rectangular body with a curve on one end to facilitate...

Powered by a single CRV3 disposable lithium ion battery,the Digimax was good for 439 shots in our battery life tests--well above theaverage for under-$500 cameras

Samsung Digimax V4 Digital Camera (Samsung-120431)


Relatively small and light, the Digimax V4 is a solid-feeling, well-designed camera with a wealth of features. But some similarly priced cameras take better pictures.

Samsung Digimax V4


There's nothing unique or exceptional about the Samsung Digimax V4. But it's a good-looking, well-designed, reasonably priced 4.0-megapixel compact camera. The Digimax V4's muted-gray plastic body has a curved ridge in front and raised bumps on the...

Samsung Digimax V4: The Seoul Survivor


Samsung's digital compacts have, in the past, been a mishmash of oddball designs and undistinguished cameras. Strange for a company whose film point-and-shoots have such sharp looks and sharper optics

Samsung Digimax V4


Anyhow, there are tons of compact 4MP cameras out there. How does the V4 compare? Find out now

Very good photo quality (colors seem a little dull though) ; Can use multiple types of batteries ; AF illuminator ; Many manual controls ; Super macro mode for shots as close as 6 cm ; Good redeye test performance ; Can save 3 sets of settings to spot...

Colors seem unsaturated ; Image playback is quite slow ; AF times slower than average ; Movie mode resolution is lower than average ; Zoom controller can be unresponsive ; Flash defaults to "on" when camera is turned on ; No Mac compatible software...

The Samsung Digimax V4 is a good, but not spectacular 4 Megapixel camera. It has a compact body, made of high-grade plastic. Photos are good, though a little dull in the color department. While I do appreciate the inclusion of an AF assist lamp, the...
