Samsung S850 review

 

On most cameras' mode dials, PASM stands for Program, Aperture priority, Shutter priority, and Manual. They're the four primary shooting modes, besides Auto, that are found on most advanced cameras and don't often show up on a camera that costs less...

Manual exposure and focus controls; quick shutter speed.

Sluggish shot-to-shot time; tends to underexpose lamp-lit shots; awkward manual focus

As one of the least expensive cameras with manual exposure controls out there, the Samsung S850 is a great choice for photography newbies.

Samsung S850 Review

 

The Samsung S850 is a reasonably priced, full-featured point and shoot camera.

Quality construction ; Stylish design ; Easy to operate controls ; Manual exposure modes ; Nice to have 5x optical zoom

Average image quality ; Doesn't compare to competition

The Samsung S850 is a nice-looking, well equipped compact digital camera. It has the nice looks that the Samsung NV line brought to the market with black body, blue accents and quality construction. It also has a full complement of manual exposure...

Samsung S850

 

Just a handgrip away from being categorized as an ultracompact, the Samsung S850 is still small enough to fit in your pocket. Still, I'd much prefer a comfortable and slim compact over a flat ultracompact any day. The handgrip, though not too well...

The camera accepts 2 AA batteries, which lasted for close to 70 shots on a single charge (these were NiMH batteries). To sum up, the Samsung S850 is an excellent camera for its price (Rs. 14,490 street). It may not be too fast, but it's ergonomic and...

Samsung S850

 

As one of the least expensive cameras with manual exposure controls out there, the Samsung S850 is a great choice for photography newbies.

Manual exposure controls ; Quick shutter speed

No manual focus ; Sluggish shot-to-shot time ; Tends to underexpose lamp-lit shots

As one of the least expensive cameras with manual exposure controls out there, the Samsung S850 is a great choice for young or inexperienced photographers who want to step beyond simple snapshooting, without investing more than AU$350. While it suffers...
