Samsung SL820

 

Samsung's SL820 point and shooter is far from svelte, but with a 5x zoom lens, a beautiful 3-inch LCD, and HD video capture, it isn't short on features.

Solid image quality. Wide-angle 5x zoom lens. Large, sharp 3-inch LCD. 720p30 HD video capture. No notable noise in images up to ISO 800.

Bulky. Audio isn't recorded when zooming during video capture. Camera does not automatically enter Macro mode when shooting close-ups. HDMI out via optional $79.99 docking station only. Proprietary USB port.

takes excellent pictures and is fast

 

It's a great camera. Good design and battery life. The only thing I find difficult is when i take pictures in night mode. Your hands need to be very steady while taking pictures in night mode otherwise, pics get blurry. In any camera, night mode is...

Nice pocket all-in-one

 

I went for the Samsung SL820 because I got used to the layout and the value of their cameras, all great buys for the price. This one offered 12 megapixels, nice wide angle (28mm equiv) starting point for the 5x zoom, and the description mentioned HD...

The camera produces very steady shots, presumably due to the dual optical/digital image stabilisation. This sort of camera is usually used as a point-and-shoot and it works very well in automatically selecting appropriate settings. The HD video that...

Sometimes the camera doesn't autofocus the first time and it is necessary to depress the button a second time, but this is usually in circumstances such as shooting through a glass window or extreme close ups and not in general outdoors usage. However,...

Great Camera!!

 

I bought this camera in black, and looks wise it's great, reasonably slim, and feels good quality. The 3" screen is brilliant, and lets you see your photos pretty well when reviewing them.
