Owners Opinion: Samsung Digimax V5 (Arnaud LACOUR, 10 Aug 05)


I just bought this camera for my in-laws for $200 in some kind of "sale" operation and I have to say that eventhough it's a pretty good deal for a 5MP, it stroke me that the cabinet seems very fragile. flip LCD is nice, bright, clear and good...

construction can improve a lot ; buttons seem to just want to pop-out, and all come apart ; manual focus command especially flaky
