Samsung Digimax V700

 

This is a mediocre camera in a number of ways, and the problems with the autoexposure should probably have kept it off the shelves altogether.

Daylight picture quality was good.

Troubling autoexposure inconsistencies. Slow performance. Some shutter lag.

Samsung Digimax V700 Review

 

Introduced at the start of 2005, the Digimax V700 is Samsung's second attempt to break into the top end of the compact market with a feature-packed yet very keenly-priced 7 megapixel model, and the first to be available worldwide. Samsung, one of the...

Samsung Digimax V700

 

Deciding on digital camera is a very confusing matter to the average consumer. The decision between more mega pixels over more features, or fully auto over some manual focus then the cost can leave your head spinning. So when its time to look for a...

The Digimax V700 is a very versatile camera with its 7.1 Mega Pixel photos and MPEG-4 video mode. The qualities of photos were of remarkable quality due to the Schneider Lens. The 2 inch LCD display on the back of the camera gives an incredible view of...

Affordable 7-megapixel camera is packed with features

Affordable, a balance of snapshooter and advanced features, good image quality, nice design, vibration reduction for movie mode.

Mixed performance, AVI movies can be problematic for Macs, higher than average image noise.

Samsung Digimax V700 Digital Camera Pro Review

 

The Samsung Digimax V700 is a full-featured point-and-shoot digital camera. It features a Schneider 3x optical zoom lens, a 2-inch color LCD with live histogram, and a nice range of exposure options, including full manual exposure control. The Digimax...

Bright, 2-inch LCD, Great exposure metering, Great color, Lots of exposure options, Live histogram display

Noticeable noise - even at ISO 50, Slow shot-to-shot time, Awkward exposure control placement

Samsung has been making compact cameras for a long time. They're very good at putting together a good package at a competitive price. They include good features and use good components, like the 2-inch LCD, 7-megapixel CCD, and the Schneider 3x optical...

Samsung Digimax V700 Digital Camera Review

 

The Samsung Digimax V700 is ideally suited as a compact camera for a photography enthusiast or a first camera for an individual or family wishing to make big prints.

Sharp photos, plenty of detail ; Very bright LCD ; Good, economical MPEG-4 movie mode ; Excellent macro capability few cm ; Features reminiscent of high-end compact digicams or dSLRs ; Comes with nice case ; A bargain at well under $399

Photos have an "overprocessed look" (too contrasty, sharp) ; Very slow shutter response time and shot-to-shot speed (you'll miss many photo opportunities) ; Only f6.4/f7.4 minimum aperture in wide/zoom ; Slightly noisy photos (although the grain noise...

The V700 is ideally suited as a compact camera for a photography enthusiast or a first camera for an individual or family wishing to make big prints. For families who like to share one camera, the Auto mode should be simple enough for even little...

Samsung Digimax V700

 

Every once in a while we are greeted with a product that makes us question what exactly the engineers were thinking. The Samsung Digimax V700 is one ...

Nice design

Poor image quality, Horrible shutter lag, Lacking in low light

Whilst the V700 may have a solid design with an average feature-set, the image quality and shutter lag simply make it very difficult to recommend over any of the competition.
