Samsung Digimax i5

 

Very good image quality.Good colour balance.Night Scene mode with 16-second exposure capability.High resolution, 2.5-inch LCD monitor.Very compact metallic body.Nicely finished, and pouch included.

Lens too close to the edge, and therefore too easily covered by fingers while holding the camera.Some noise in images as of 100 ISO.50 ISO setting only available with Auto shooting mode or Scene modes.Poor instruction manual.

Samsung Digimax i5

 

A surprisingly well put together camera and actually one of the best point and shoots around in recent months. The i5 takes some very sharp images and is excellent at capturing all manner of tonal ranges. A simple, stylish and easy to use pocket sized cam

Review of the Samsung Digimax i5 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

The i5 is one of a new range of compacts from Samsung. Constructed from metal, it is about the size of a pack of cards and similar to the Nikon S1 and Konica Minolta X1.

Samsung's Digimax i5

 

We appreciate their trying to get in on the stylish ultrathin camera market and all-and it's definitely a cut above on the aesthetics of their other Digimax devices-but their 5 megapixel i5 is going to have to prove itself...

Small and portable

Short battery life ; Inferior photo quality

Small, portable Digimax i5 suffers from short battery life and low photo quality compared with other cameras' photos.

Samsung Digimax i5 review

 

Samsung Digimax i5

Useful, broad feature set; large, bright LCD; ultraportable; solid build; voice-recording mode; included text-recognition software; strong video-recording features; large internal memory.

Slow performance; below-average picture quality; not as intuitive to use as competition; not suited for wide-angle shooting.

Its feature set is both competitive and interesting, and it has a top-notch 2.5-inch LCD, but the 5-megapixel Samsung Digimax i5 can't keep pace with the competition when it comes to speed and photo quality.

Digital Cameras - Samsung Digimax I5 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

The Samsung Digimax i5 digital camera is that company's first venture into the world of subcompact digicams, and it's a surprisingly impressive first showing. It will certainly turn more than a few heads with its good looks and small size, and its...

Attractive design, well-built, very compact, has a solid feel to it

Somewhat higher than average image noise (but noise is fairly fine-grained, making it less objectionable), Images are a bit on the soft side, Rather slow shutter response, Continuous mode is quite slow, Not the best for low-light shooting, mediocre...

The Samsung Digimax i5 offers automatic and "manual" exposure control, as well as a range of 11 preset Scene exposure modes. What Samsung dubs "manual" mode, is really just Program AE exposure control. Auto mode keeps the camera in charge of...

Samsung Digimax i5

 

What's in the Box

Compact and stylish metal body; comes in three colors ; Very good photo quality (though see issues below) ; Many manual controls ; Large, high resolution 2.5" LCD display (though low light visibility could be better) ; Tons of built-in memory (50MB) ;...

Photos could be sharper; noise a bit above average ; Noticeable shutter lag ; Poor low light focusing despite having an AF-assist lamp ; Continuous shooting mode borders on useless: LCD turned off during shooting; frame rate is sluggish as well ;...

While the Digimax i5 is a very capable camera, there are better cameras out there for your hard earned money. If Samsung addresses some of the cons listed below I think they'd have a real hit on their hands. Maybe next time?

Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera Review

 

The Samsung Digimax i5 is definitely an eye-catcher.

Attractive styling ; Good indoor shot performance ; 50 MB of internal memory ; Excellent LCD screen ; Nice movie mode ; Easy controls -- quick access to switch modes

Average image quality -- most notably the higher than average noise ; Underexposed images ; Slow shutter lag ; Small size may be hard to hold for some

The Digimax i5 is a 5 megapixel camera with a 3x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom. The camera does not have an optical viewfinder, only a 2.5 inch LCD
