Samsung L83T


Advertised as the 'midget' photographer, the Samsung L83T packs quite a punch in a truly compact form factor

Ultra-compact, good build and features, good indoor shots, Super Macro mode

User interface can be confusing, images aren't sharp enough,outdoor performance is below average

Expert review by:

Samsung L83t


The new L83t offers a small and slim body with a lot of pixels packed in like sardines. It also offers Face recognition AF, Image stabiliser, a metal body, up to 1cm macro and a high ISO of 1600.

Slim styling; Internal workings; Easy to use functionality

Many functions could get confusing

Samsung's Midget Photographer has some big advantages

Very solid build quality Genuine macro mode Quick power up and use Handy face recognition button

Poor high ISO ; Thumb rest an afterthought ; Lack of user control in modes ; Silly name

Samsung L83T: Decent digital camera for people who don't like too many but ...


It's really tough buying a digital camera with so many choices on the market. I bought the Samsung L83T in late 2007 and I've not had any problems with it so far. The camera is easy to use, just stick it on 'auto' and let it do the work. As is common...

Easy to use

Probably not the best value choice at this time
