Samsung Digimax V5 review
Aug 10, 2005

I just bought this camera for my in-laws for $200 in some kind of "sale" operation and I have to say that eventhough it's a pretty good deal for a 5MP, it stroke me that the cabinet seems very fragile.
flip LCD is nice, bright, clear and good resolution.
menus are pretty intuitive.
overall good for a first camera I would say.
macro is pretty bad though, can't focus easily, takes many retries to focus correctly when lens is 3 inches from subject

Problems:

construction can improve a lot
buttons seem to just want to pop-out, and all come apart
manual focus command especially flaky
