Samsung Pro 815 review


Samsung has pooled its tech to create its ultimate camera – but is the Pro 815 too much of too many good things?

The Pro 815 is impressive in so many ways, but also massive and flawed

Samsung stakes its claim

There's not a great deal wrong with the Pro815. The auto-focus isn't as sharp as it should be but there's good manual back-up here

Samsung Pro815


The 8 Megapixel Samsung Pro815 is the world's first digital camera with a 15x megazoom lens, also the world's first 3.5" LCD screen, the world's first top mounted LCD image display and the world's most powerful battery pack. The fast...

Samsung isn't a name that immediately springs to mind when thinking of high-end digital cameras - most of their previous models have been point-&-shoots aimed at the budget-conscious. But that is about to change.

High-quality, high-ratio zoom lens with both wide-angle and super-telephoto capabilities in the same package.

Uses a small, noisy 2/3-inch sensor with a maximum 400 ISO, and there's no image-stabilizer.

There's little difference to the Leica lens used on the Panasonic Lumix FZ30, but you'll have to weigh up the importance of the wider-angle of view versus the benefits derived from Panasonic's image stabilization. The Pro815 is a decent camera, but you...

Samsung Pro 815 Review


Samsung have a history of producing feature packed compact digital cameras at a reasonable price. In this review we take a look at the Pro 815 which is their first foray into the higher end of the digital camera market.

Massive zoom range; The huge 3.5inch LCD screen is very clear and sharp; Waist-level finder LCD is a great feature; Image quality at low ISO settings; Build quality; Battery life

Small maximum aperture at the long end of the zoom

The Pro815 is a good first attempt by Samsung, but it is missing a few things that would allow it to compete with the big guns. The most practical feature is the 15X zoom, and if that is important to you then this may be a consideration

15X zoom, huge screen, rugged design

Poor image quality, sits badly in the hand, lower than average battery life
