Samsung S1070 review
Feb 14, 2009

This camara has quite nice features considering its low price :
- very compact size and nice design
- standard AA batteries
- quite decent 2.7 " LCD size
- decent range of manual controls, full manual exposure.
Outdoor pictures are sharp, with accurate colors and well exposed, but indoor flash portrait show strong blue skin tones. Fortunately, the camera offers a in camera edit tool that enables you to change colors. (But there is no red eye removal tool)
The shutter button is not very soft to my opinion, that can make the camera shake while using slow shutter speed.
The Samsung camera menus are very well designed, with easy access to all record options (sensibility, White balance, image size, exposure, ...etc).
(A few mistakes in dpreview specifications for this camera : zoom range is 35-105 (instead of 38-105), movies files are MJPEG (instead of MPEG4).

Problems:

Blue skin tones with indoor flash portrait
Shutter button not soft enough.
