Samsung ES15 Digital Camera


My husband won the Samsung ES15 Digital Camera from a raffle at his work. At first it looks obsolete for me compared to the new digital cameras that is already in the market. But as days passed using this camera, I appreciate and loved its simplicity....

Samsung ES15 digital camera


The Samsung ES15 is a cheap and compact digital camera that offers decent imaging performance and some interesting inbuilt features.

Good price-to-performance ratio, comes with some consumer-friendly tools and features

Dirt-cheap price tag is reflected in the look and feel

The Samsung E15 offers an identical imaging performance to its E55 sibling. It doesn't look as cool (and the E55 wasn't that cool to begin with) but the lower price tag makes it well worth a look.

Samsung ES15 - Good looking and affordable


In my opinion, this is a very appealing digital camera. Most digital cameras are fairly expensive if you're the kind of people who wants to take pictures from nights out and not too fussed with exceptional quality. Don't get me wrong, the quality on...

Ok for the price


In terms of picture quality I must admit I was quite impressed, especially with the beauty shot feature which you can use retouch photos to 3 different levels. I was however really dissappointed that it only takes AA batteries, mine are dead already...


Product Specifications

It's the camera that's great to have around to capture all those not-to-be-missed moments. With its handy photo help guide built right in, the ES15 sports a 3x optical zoom lens for sharp, clear close-ups and Digital Image Stabilization technology that instantly eliminates any camera motion. Composing shots is a breeze with a generous 2.5" LCD screen, especially when you're shooting video.
