Samsung SL310W Digital Camera Review


Using a compact digital camera is a rarity to me these days.  I can usually be found lugging around my Nikon D90 since it has all the high-end features I need for taking professional shots. The only time I would probably even think of taking my compact...

Low noise levels for an ultracompact camera. Vibrant colors with very strong red tones ; Special effects modes are neat. High megapixel count – 13.6 is certainly worth the investment alone

Tendency for blurry shots. Facial recognition often doesn't work. Lack of lighting, even in outdoor shots where there is plenty of natural light. Dual image stabilization seems to be overrated

The Samsung SL310W is an impressive camera from the outside that packs a lot of features into a little lightweight body. It’s also easy to use once you learn the features. The built-in help guide is convenient and a smart learning tool, we'd love to...

Samsung L310W digital camera review


The L310W is Samsung's compact gambit for those trading up to a higher specified digital model, or perhaps those needing to get a little more control of their shots. To that end the L310W has a rich feature set that includes a modicum of manual...

Features, ease of use, price (for feature set)

Poor high ISO noise performance, bland styling, fiddly zoom control

It may be lackluster in the styling department but providing you keep to lower ISOs is capable of great results

With a 13.6 megapixel sensor and a wide angle lens, we take a look at Samsung's new top-of-the-range compact

As well as its stupendous resolution, the L310W offers a 28mm-equivalent wide angle on a 3.6x zoom lens, optical image stabilisation, 3200 ISO maximum sensitivity and a 2.7-inch monitor. It also has the usual list of advanced features, including face,...

Samsung L310W Digital Camera [Review]


Did this 13 megapixel ultra-compact camera impress us? Find out...

13MP, build, macro mode performance, advanced features like smile and blink detection

Overall image quality, noise suppression could have been better, ISO 3200 is of no use, expensive

With 13.6MP resolution, this is Samsung's top-of-the-range compact

Features, price, build quality

Performance, image quality, complicated controls

Noise is an issue, but the Samsung L310W offers an impressive specification for a reasonable price.

Samsung L310W


This Samsung L310W review includes sample photos and shutter delay times. You will also find coverage of the camera's features and alternative cameras to consider.

Photo help guide - features for the price

Lack of sharpness - small menu text

Well not every digital camera can be a superstar. Samsung have packed in a wide range of features and managed to keep the cost very low. Perhaps this has meant one or two too many compromises in over all quality, because the L310W struggled with my...
