GOOD GEAR GUIDE - BEST BUYS

Expert review by : Chris Jager (goodgearguide.com.au)

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 SL30 Black 10.2 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

 

I wanted this camera for my wife and it needs to be a simple point and shoot. This does a horrible job at that. I have owned Canons in the past they always took good pictures and had a good automatic focus. I would stay away form this camera. Save up...

Small. Sometimes it takes good pictures

Pictures are often blurry. Wasted $90

SAMSUNG SL30 Black 10.2 MP 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

 

This little camera is a great replacement for my wife's bulky Sony DSC-H2. So far, the SL30 takes great pictures and it takes pictures when I press the button. That was the main reason behind replacing the old camera. It's not an SLR by any means. But,...

A very minor inconvenience (for my wife and I specifically) is that the SL30 uses a different mini - USB cable than the ones that we already own. I'm really looking for things to write here. Switching to video mode takes a few more seconds than I would...

Nice Little Camera

 

I bought this camera to replace an antique Sony Mavica. It's a good camera for the price with a few minor quirks. It takes good quality pictures, & is fairly easy to operate once you get used to the controls. A "SDHC card & camera case" are a must if...

Cheap price ($79 shipped), compact & lightweight, runs on AA batteries instead of proprietary rechargeable batteries. Good resolution. Plug & Play with XP, never had to install the CD supplied with the camera

The control layout takes a some time to get used to. A camera case should be supplied with the camera, even if it's a cheap one. The built in memory is very very small, it holds 3-15 pictures (depending on resolution) if you're lucky

Great camera for the kids

 

This camera is reviewed by digital camera hq as the top choice for this type of camera in this price range. I bought it for my 11-year-old son to replace his old camera and he's been having a blast!

Goes quickly from from off to ready ; Pretty good on battery life ; Pictures are decent ; Lots of features ; Can use zoom during video ; Great image stabilization ; Low cost ; Perfect camera for the kids

Menus took a little getting used to ; Would like to see better low-light performance ; Recording mutes when zooming

Requires batteries...

 

I got this in the mail the other day and was very disappointed to see it takes batteries. I was specifically looking for a camera with its own rechargeable battery. I did not find anything in the description about this feature, or lack there of. I...

Fair camera for the price

 

I agree with the other reviewers that the batteries have a tendency to die off rather quickly, regardless of whether I buy store brand or the name brand (like Energizer of Duracell). Other than the battery issue, the camera takes good pictures (I use...
