Samsung L74 Wide review

 

Can a touchscreen add somn iPhone class to Samsung's latest?

Easy to use

Slow and fussy ; Overloaded with gimmicks

Touch-sensitive cameras are a great idea, but their time hasn't quite yet come

Samsung L74 Wide

 

Good to very good image quality ; Accurate metering ; Good colour rendition ; Long exposure mode ; 450 MB of internal memory + SD slot ; Solid construction

Slow and busy interface ; Too few user controls ; Images a touch soft ; Built-in flash has limited range ; World Tour Guide of limited use, yet occupies its own mode dial position

Samsung L74 Wide

 

This wideangle 7.2MP camera features a touch-screen LCD that look good on paper… but what about in use?

Samsung Digimax L74

 

The Samsung Digimax L74 is a bit different to a lot of digital cameras. For a start it has a 3 inch touch LCD and a wide angle lens. It also comes with a number of effects you can apply to photos you have already taken. These include colour changes and...

Looks good - feels good it the hand - large LCD screen - after photo effects - massive internal memory

Shutter lag

"The Samsung Digimax L74 offers a wide angle lens and large, touch LCD screen. It has 7 megapixels and a 3.6x optical zoom lens. When it comes to picture quality it sits roughly in the middle of the pack. It has a few different features worth taking a...

Samsung L74 Wide Digital Camera

 

This is totally different from almost any other digital camera I have reviewed as almost all the settings are adjusted from the TFT touchscreen, certainly a first for me.

The is a maximum of 10x6x3cm and weights just on 200grams. It is black and always feels cold as the casing is metal the one strange looking item is the wrist strap hole that looks as if it was attached on the right side as an afterthought. Samsung...

Samsung L74

 

Nikon's CoolPix S52 is a decent and quite stylish digital camera. It looks great and takes fairly good photos, although they have some noise issues and the camera's performance is painfully slow at times.

Minimal chromatic aberration, stylish design

Extremely slow at times, pictures somewhat grainy

Samsung Digimax L74 Wide review

 

When you think about camera lenses, "zoom" is probably the first word that comes to mind. Lots of camera manufacturers focus on giving their cameras the longest zoom lenses available, but while 5x, 10x, and 12x lenses are all handy for getting up close...

Wide lens; large screen; World Tour Guide is a fun if not terribly useful feature.

Slow performance; noisy, fringe-filled photos; touch screen interface is a pain.

A wide lens and nifty tour guide feature simply can't redeem the Samsung L74 Wide from its poor image quality, slow shooting, and irritating interface.

Though its wide lens and World Tour Guide are very useful features, the Samsung L74W simply has too many flaws to ignore. An irritating touch screen interface, painfully slow performance, and noise-filled photos make this a camera we simply can't...
