Samsung S1050 digital camera

 

Samsung has updated its S850 model with the S1050 and the camera comes complete with a rather tempting feature set. This includes a suite of manual controls for the more advanced among you, a 10-megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom lens, and a new large...

Build and styling, simple controls, AA-battery power, low ISO image quality, advanced manual control options

Sluggish AF performance, shutter lag, cramped buttons, excessive noise in ISO 400 and above images

Some sluggish performance aspects, odd handling, and menu foibles tarnish an otherwise excellent image quality performance at low ISOs. Noise is an issue too at higher ISOs though.

Samsung S1050

 

The S1050 from Samsung sits at the top of the current S-series lineup offering a 10.1MP sensor in a compact body. It was launched alongside the S850, which looks more or less the same, but has 8.1MP and a 2.5-inch LCD, rather than the three-inch...

Easy-to-use, but with manual controls that help you develop your skills, this compacts is feature-packed, stylish and capable of achieving fantastic-looking shots.

Samsung S1050

 

Touch screen, great focusing system, quality zoom lens

Complicated joystick interface, expensive

The DMC-FX520 is an advanced camera that takes rich, clear photos and has the additional option of manual focusing using the touch screen. It's pricey, but you get plenty of advanced features for the price.

Samsung S1050 review

 

With cameras, you usually get what you pay for. If you're willing to drop more cash, you'll generally get more features, faster shooting, and better pictures. So naturally, when we saw the Samsung S1050--the beefed-up, higher-resolution version of the...

Manual exposure controls; face-detection features are useful.

Slow to shoot; photos are filled with noise at all but the lowest sensitivity settings; face detection is unreliable in low light.

The 10-megapixel Samsung S1050 has lots of neat features, but its photos come up lacking.

Slow to shoot ; Photos are filled with noise at all but the lowest sensitivity settings ; Face detection is unreliable in low light

The Samsung Digimax S1050 proves to be its little brother's inferior in almost every way. While it offers greater resolution, a large screen, and face-detection features, its downsides are simply far too great compared to the S850. Its photos are...

Samsung Digimax S1050 Digital Camera Review

 

Samsung Digimax S1050 is a compact camera with ergonomic grip, lightweight but not very slim, available in 2 colors: silver and black. The features that make this camera be on top of the sales are the high megapixels, high optical zoom (5x instead of...
