Samsung L830 review

 

For a sub-$200 camera, Samsung's 8-megapixel L830 packs some strange and useful features into its slimmer-than-it-feels frame. A manual exposure mode, manual color adjustments, and a high-resolution movie mode belie the camera's small price tag....

The Samsung L830 has a manual exposure mode, manual color channel controls, a face-detection mode, and basic camera functions that are easy to access.

No aperture/shutter priority; noisy pictures.

The Samsung L830 is a compact 8-megapixel camera that offers plenty of manual controls, but its sluggish shooting and disappointing picture quality hold it back.

Does low price always have to mean low quailty?

Manual exposure mode ; Manual colour channel controls ; Face detection ; Easy access to basic camera functions

No aperture/shutter priority ; Noisy pictures

If you're willing to go for a larger camera, Canon's PowerShot A570 IS,is around the same price and has a 4x optical zoom lens as well as manual and aperture- and shutter-priority modes. Meanwhile, Sony's Cyber-shot DSC-W55, also in the same size and...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Small and nice

 

When I initially ordered this item, I did not realize you had to pick the combo deal to get the free SD and carrying case. I started up the newegg chat and within a couple of days they had sent me the SD and carrying case free of charge. I LOVE NEWEGG!!!

Very small and takes excellent pictures. Uses SD memory instead of XD like the others. SD is much cheaper. Came with 1GB SD and a very durable carrying case

Haven't found one yet
