Fantastic little camera
Very nice quality pictures that can handle high iso noises pretty well, Video quality is amazing with very fast auto focusing. Even at low light, the focus was amazingly well done. I own Canon 7D and I bought this camera for my wife and she is loving it so far. Lots of fun functions built in camera editor, as well as full touch screen effects are really nice. I highly recommend this camera whoever wants to buy a mirrorless. It even comes with free lightroom4 software!
Sharp images even from kit lens, Great Wi-Fi connectivity
The Samsung NX300 really does earn the title of the flagship NX mirrorless camera. It offers a classic leatherette skin draped over a sleek metal body. It is solid and sturdy--the best made NX of the entire lineup. Its image quality is clean and sharp, only giving way to serious pixel degradation at ISOs above 6400.
Deliver significantly more features and performance
The NX300's new 20.3 megapixel sensor delivers excellent still image quality, with a very usable ISO range of 100-6400, plus 1080p HD video at a range of frame rates complete with auto-focusing, full control over the exposure settings, stereo sound and a wealth of other options.
Image quality, Build quality and design
It's clear that a lot of consideration has gone into not only what the Samsung NX300 should do, but also how it should do it, since you're never more than a couple of clicks - or screen taps - away from any particular setting.
Samsung's iFunction lens system continues to impress, with the new Lens Priority function opening up the world of attractive short depth of field photography to less experienced users.
Great image quality
The Samsung NX300 is an welcome refresh to the Samsung NX range, with an impressive 3.31 inch touch screen (the largest on any mirrorless camera), and a good range of Wi-Fi features built in. Image quality is impressive with better results than the previous model, the NX210, thanks to improved noise performance, and excellent levels of detail.
iFunction control system, low light performance
The NX line-up was already strong, and the NX300 solidifies its position as one of the best compact system camera options currently on sale.
There's a pretty heady mix of specs inside its beautiful retro body, with - to coin a clich - something for everyone. For the pros, there's a large sensor, top notch low light performance, and of course the bundled Lightroom software.
Easy Wi-Fi connectivity
Samsung delivers a camera with plenty of power and features to satisfy photographers who want to step-up to an interchangeable lens model. That said, the lack of viewfinder options may be off putting to those who are looking for a compact alternative to an SLR.
The NX300 sells for AU$899 with an 18-55mm OIS III lens. It comes bundled with a free copy of Adobe Lightroom 4, which normally retails at AU$98.75 as a stand-alone package.
Very good image quality, Very good Wi-Fi connectivity
The Samsung NX2000 sits very comfortably between the NX1100 and the NX300--offering users a high quality camera for a reasonable price. If fact, at the time of this review we were able to find the NX2000 for about $600 (making it the same price as the NX1100. That's a $150 savings over the NX300. But is the price difference worth it? Not in my book. I would spend the extra money to get a camera with a little more beef and a hybrid AF system.
I'm not saying the NX2000 is a bad camera.
Delivers excellent still image quality
Sharing the same core DNA as the other NX models, the new NX2000 offers a much more phone-like interface than either the NX300 or range-topping NX20, with built-in wi-fi and NFC connectivity too, so for some people it will actually offer a more familiar handling experience.
Very good value for money, Adobe Lightroom 4 included
The Samsung NX2000 is a fairly compact mirrorless camera with a high resolution 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and a large 3.7inch touch screen on the back. The camera delivers impressive image quality with excellent levels of detail and colour with good noise performance. The camera has a good level of control, with the large touch screen helping here, although visibility was not great when outdoors.
Outstanding image quality, Touchscreen LCD is large and sharp
The primary drawback to this camera is it has a slightly higher starting price than some other models in this segment of the market. Considering its feature list, though, the NX2000's price is fair and this camera is a good value. However, some intermediate-level photographers who are looking for an entry-level interchangeable lens cameras may not quite have the budget to afford this feature-rich Samsung offering.
Larger touchscreen, Sharp colourful images, Plenty of detail
The Samsung NX2000 offers the same 20.3-megapixel effective resolution from an APS-C sensor as last year's NX1000 - but that's good news.
We also get a larger touch screen LCD, NFC connectivity, expanded ISO range topping out at ISO25600 and other less important operational tweaks.
Image quality, Ergonomic design, Decent build
Interchangeable Lens Cameras have certainly come a long way from being a clunky piece of contraption to now a sleek and sometimes pocketable device. Sadly though, there are some crucial aspects of the camera that got lost in the transition, such as the case with the Samsung NX2000.
Maybe it's just a case of an old dog, new trick on my part, but I'm really disappointed with the scarcity of physical button on this camera to give way for the fairly large display.
Impressive image quality, AT&T/T-Mobile LTE connectivity
The Samsung Galaxy NX is the company's second attempt at putting Android on a camera, building on the point-and-shoot Galaxy Camera. This time the company went with a mirrorless design, but it's as much held back by its Android operating system as it is helped by it.
Excellent image quality
Ultimately we think that the Galaxy Camera serves the consumer better, and the NX300 the keen prosumer - and that's not even looking outside the Samsung family. Despite its huge potential, we can't justify recommending the Samsung Galaxy NX until its price, performance and user interface issues have been addressed.
Slow processing, No physical buttons
Ultimately, we're just not sure who this camera is aimed at. The professional who has this kind of money to spend on gear like this will no doubt get very quickly frustrated with some of the camera's problems, while the beginner who is likely to be tempted by the large screen and Android is unlikely to want to spend this kind of cash.
Unfortunately, for the price, this camera just isn't good enough and we'd be hard pushed to recommend it to anyone but early adopters with money to burn.
Excellent 4.8inch screen, Very good image quality
For the gadget obsessed, where money is no object, this camera can work well, particularly as a point and shoot camera. If you simply point and shoot without changing many settings, and shoot in JPEG only, you will be extremely pleased with the high image quality this camera produces. You also get access to a good range of Samsung NX lenses, and the large 4.8inch screen on the back is simply gorgeous, the best on any camera currently available.
Good stills and video quality
Overall we're a little stuck in limbo land when it comes to scoring the Galaxy NX. Undeniably good image quality is what really carries the camera, decent operation and great sharing features are other positives that also give it plenty to shout about. But the physical size and exorbitant price will be at odds with some buyers.
Easy uploading via Wi-Fi or 4G
Needless to say there are a lot of advantages to using the SamsungGalaxy NX, and it's not hard to see that one day all cameras (not just premium ones) will be made this way - in offering the ability to go online, and more besides, via the camera itself with a couple of taps of its touch screen.
Richly detailed colourful results thanks to larger lens mount and sensor
It's all about pictures however and using the general-purpose 18-55mm kit zoom supplied it's possible to get those attractive, DSLR-style, shallow depth of field effects, even if we found busy scenes could confuse the camera's AF as to what it should be focusing on. More positively, the back screen ensures that images always look an absolute knock-out. As a first of its kind product the minimalist design and high asking price will inevitably divide option however.
Love this camera
We initially purchased a Nikon but returned it because of poor picture quality and difficulty in figuring out how to use it. We purchased this camera hoping for the best but expecting a similar experience. Boy were we wrong - this camera is extremely easy to use and the pictures are clear and exactly what we wanted. The price was a little more but well worth it.
Fast maximum aperture, neutral colors, integral handgrip
The WB800F is a compact, well designed, sturdily built, and easy to use P&S digicam with a 21x zoom, but I'd like to offer a bit of advice to Samsung's product development folks - constantly crowding more pixels onto tiny P&S digicam sensors results in noticeably higher noise levels and the WB800F 16 megapixel sensor does produce marginally more noise than the SX280 HS's lower resolution 12 megapixel sensor. The differences are subtle, but they are visible.
Suit a wide range of abilities
As usual, though, the price of the Samsung WB800F is very appealing - an official tag of £249.99 / $299.99, before any shopping around, makes this camera, if not an outright bargain, then certainly cheaper than the rest of the travel-zoom crowd, especially considering the features on offer. Only you can decide if that's all worth sacrificing a little image quality for.
Good touchscreen, Excellent Wi-Fi connectivity, Excellent value for money
If connectivity and a lot of optical zoom is important to you then you should seriously consider the Samsung WB800F with Wi-Fi, as it has one of the best implementations of Wi-Fi on any camera, making it extremely easy to share photos directly to Facebook and other social network sites.
First camera with total connectivity
The Samsung Galaxy Camera offers a great deal of connectivity allowing users to transfer photos from the device to a tablet or phone along with one of the best implementations of connectivity seen to date. The quality of image is good as photos taken in good lighting conditions and at low ISO are relatively sharp and noise free. The camera employs a user interface that is second to none among cameras. The components far exceed any smartphone camera available.
Combines a smartphone and digital camera with 3G, 4G and WiFi
The Galaxy Camera will start shipping in October. However, its future will depend heavily on its price, which hasn't been announced. While there aren't any digital cameras that pack as many features, otherwise-comparable devices without the internet connectivity, such as Sony's DSC-HX9V, cost around £330.
Image quality is good
This is a tricky thing to evaluate. On the one hand, if we had $500 to spend on a camera of this size, we'd be more likely to spend it on a sophisticated mirrorless model that delivers better image quality. Alternatively, if we needed a cheap compact, we might opt for the Samsung WB850F, which has WiFi connectivity and the same lens and sensor as the Galaxy Camera, but costs half the price.
Convenience and flexibility is addictive
Is the Galaxy Camera a game-changer? Yes, and no. In itself, it's the best of the Android-based cameras, though that's hardly a well-stocked category. Judged purely on its photography abilities it struggles, falling short of what similarly-priced rivals can produce while costing significantly more than the point-and-shoots it's quality is on a par with.
So Excellent In So Many Ways
I've had many digital cameras, even more expensive ones from Nikon, Cannon, and Minolta, and a number of small Cannon 'Elfs'. This time, as usual, I first looked at all the Nikon and Canon models. but was having difficulty finding a highly-rated camera with a FAST lens and at least 3X optical zoom in a compact model without spending between $600 and $1000. Then I saw a review with the MV900F rated as 2nd best out of about 20 new point and shoot cameras.
Cool user interface
We are guessing that the niche for a product like the MV800 is very, very small, we can't find a good reason to recommend it to anyone. Sure, it has no monthly costs, but if money is an issue, you shouldn't be spending $280 on a mediocre point-and-shoot anyway. The MV800 does have a cool user interface, but that alone is no reason to choose a camera. There are tons of better cameras for an equal or better price. Spend your money on one of them.
Captures sharp 16-megapixel photos with pleasing color
Samsung continues to create some unique and fun to use cameras. The MV800 has a lot to offer inside its sleek and stylish metal frame. The younger and social masses will love the flip-up display and "smart phone like" touch screen operation, while other users will appreciate the camera's 16-megapixels of resolution and 5x optical zoom lens. Either way, the MV800 is sure to be a popular camera this holiday season, and in to 2012 with a street price of about $249 USD or less.
A very easy and surprisingly full-featured camera to use
If point and shoot's your thing, then you'll be delighted with the new Samsung NV800, which offers by far the most hand-holding features that we've ever seen on a compact camera, coupled with a great touchscreen that largely succeeds in mimicking a smartphone. And that's not even mentioning the unique and very useful flip-out display which makes it easy to take a self-portrait and shoot from more obscure angles.
Flip-screen is ideal for self/group portraits
The Samsung MV800 isn't the speediest camera on the market by any means. But then, it's really not designed to be fast - it's designed to be easy-to-use, flexible and fun. Measured solely by these three key credentials it scores well too. There are still some things we'd like to see in a future model such as built-in Wi-Fi and direct social networking integration but in most other ways the MV800 is step in the right direction that serves the needs of its target audience very well indeed.
MultiView screen is unique
We have reviewed a number of Samsung's latest compact digital cameras and where they all score well is performance, the MV800 is no different. Although the images are soft in the corners, they do have plenty of detail and excellent colour reproduction. It is fair to say at £199.00 it is quite expensive but with the unique MultiView screen it stands out from the crowd and is likely to be a popular choice for buyers with a slightly higher budget.
Flip screen for self-portraits
Samsung's MV800 is a quirky and well-built compact camera. Although the flip out screen may be a little gimmicky, as it's not something that you'll be using all the time, its screen resolution makes it a pleasure to use as a "normal" compact too. The touchscreen interface is a nice idea and the responsiveness is way beyond previous generation models. Sadly, it's not "Smartphone standard" and that's what many potential customers will have come to anticipate, if not expect.
Sleek matte finish and features a slim profile
The MV800 is a feature-rich shooter that comes with a unique flip-out touchscreen LCD as well as interesting image-editing tools. We think this ultracompact should appeal to shutterbugs who enjoy capturing self portraits as well as casual snapshooters who enjoy shooting and sharing their results with others instantly.
Truly stands out
So bottom line is, this is a good camera with some really outstanding features, it's really great feel and fun expirience, something making other competitors looks dull and boring. But if those new features make you so excited, you should consider a good smartphone, maybe that is what you really need.
Color, noise, and even handling performance is diminished
The SH100 is, in a way, an example of what not to do when developing new technology. In the process of adding new featuresâ??Wi-Fi in this caseâ??the core of the product has been sacrificed. Color, noise, and even handling performance is diminished. But the worst part is that the Wi-Fi itself barely adds anything at all. And that is what not to do: sacrifice performance for a new feature that wasnâ??t worth it anyway.
Excellent value and obvious appeal to the tech-savvy teen
A compact camera with built-in Wi-Fi, whilst perhaps not an over-riding consideration for the average happy snapper at the point of purchase, certainly has its uses and moreover in the case of the SH100 actually works, and works simply. OK, it's not the only option for sharing photos, but more methods rather than fewer is always welcome.
With prices starting at just over Â£100, the Samsung SH100 has plenty to offer. It's suitable for most users but people going travelling will find it especially useful thanks to the Wi-Fi capability. If you need a pocket camera to take on holiday or you're a social networker that needs immediate connection for your pictures, then this is the camera for you.
The Samsung SH100 is a neat little point-and-shoot that offers innovative built-in Wi-Fi functionality and can more than stand its ground in the image quality stakes too. If wireless connectivity is at the top of your priority list the SH100 is well worth a closer look, especially given that it can now be sourced online for around Â£130. As it is, weâ?? re scoring it a low eight out of ten. If it were not for the poor LCD screen and clunky touch-screen controls, then weâ??
Excellent colour reproduction
In terms of picture quality, performance is consistent with other Samsung compacts we have reviewed of late, with excellent colour reproduction. This particular model differs from the rest with its Wi-Fi connectivity and touch screen which both prove to be a welcome addition. The Wi-Fi means that images and videos can be shared quickly and easily, at home or on the move, on sites such as Facebook. The Smart Filters on offer here are good and they are also available for use on videos as well.
Touchscreen was silky smooth
The SH100â?? s real selling point is its low price. Although it was more upon launch, there are plenty of stores and sites listing various colour options for between Â£105-120. Consider all the technology thatâ?? s been squeezed into this dinky compact and thatâ?? s a real bargain. Sure there are some issues with the touchscreenâ?? s responsiveness and the images are of reasonable rather than great quality, but youâ??
It's actually a good camera!
You can go wrong in the entry-level point-and-shoot category but not with this little guy - it works splendidly, it's budget-friendly, and it has features and some performance that's comparable to other point-and-shoot offerings at twice the price. I highly recommend this camera.
OK, so you can't swap the lens on the front and the sensor's physically on the small side, but there's actually very little to dislike about the pocket friendly Samsung ST95. It offers a better build quality than we'd formerly expected at its price, quick response times, intuitive operation, touch screen control (if you want it) and colourful snapshots requiring minimal if any adjustment once downloaded to your desktop, though inevitably suffering from familiar bugbears such as occasional...
Touch-screen needs to be improved
The ST95's build quality is good and is an upgrade on from the ST90 with additional features such as the touchscreen, the lock on the battery door and a better looking lens cover. While the touchscreen is responsive, it works best with the provided stylus. The screen can be difficult to see in very bright light even when it's shaded.
Filters available on images and videos
The ST95 is a good looking camera and the 3in wide LCD touch really adds to its appearance. Images produced have excellent colour reproduction, although they don't have lots of detail when viewed they will look great when shared on social networking sites. Those who enjoy shooting videos as well will find the extra creativity options appealing.
Touchscreen interface is intuitive and easy to use/navigate
The Samsung ST95 is one of five low to medium-end, ST series digital cameras released together in early Spring 2011. Building from the ST30, ST65, and ST90, the superior ST95 hosts a wider 27mm lens so users can better capture more details via a deeper image perspective, a more powerful 14mm sensor for crisper and sharper images, and support for the H.264 codec.
Good for the beginner
The ST90â??s features are all well and good for the beginner, but serious gamers will need something a little more sophisticated. However, I must remember the price and for that kind of money itâ??s a great buy, especially if want to store it in a drawer or if youâ??re after more than one joystick for the kids.
Camera is very compact and looks good
Recently we have reviewed many compact cameras from Samsung, all offering a very similar level of performance, all with identical lenses. The main feature of the ST90 is that it is very small and at Â£109.99 it delivers a very pleasing performance, with good colour reproduction. The main problem is that there are many cameras available at this price level, and it will depend on which features appeal to you the most.
