Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera Review

The Digimax i5 ($350) is Samsung's entry into the very crowded ultra thin camera market. The i5 features a 5 Megapixel CCD, 3X optical zoom lens, large 2.5" LCD display, and VGA movie mode. If that sounds like every other cameras in this class, you're right.

Samsung has definitely designed the camera to be simple to operate by reducing buttons and confusion on the camera body itself. The clean, simple design will make it very comfortable for almost anyone to pick up and use. The Digimax i5 features a internal 3x optical zoom, which means that the lens doesn't extend out like it does on many small cameras. This keeps the camera thin and compact even during use. Other features include a whopping 50MB of internal memory, full screen video (640x480, 30fps) mode with sound and zoom capability, and a bright, large 2.5" TFT color display.

Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera

DigitalCameraReview have posted their Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera Review and in it said-
The Samsung Digimax i5 is an attractive camera in a busy field of ultra-compact cameras. The inclusion of 50MB of internal memory is a real plus for this camera as is the excellent 2.5 inch LCD. However, slower than average shutter lag and average image quality need to be weighed against the positives in order for this to be a good choice for you.

This camera is a good choice for people who need a stylish camera to take out on the town and show off to friends, as it won't take up much space in a pocket or purse. The 2.5 inch LCD makes it easy to show off images and the good indoor capabilities are nice for those dimly lit restaurants.
