PIX 2015

Samsung Digimax A50

Announced Jun 2, 2005 •
5 megapixels | 2.5 screen | 35 – 105 mm (3×)

Great LCD screen, easy to use, decent pictures, but not worth the risk due to poor reliability. Problems: I bought 2 of these cameras for my boys last Christmas. One broke within 5 minutes--locked up and wouldn't function. The replacement had the same problem 6 months later. Samsung tried to replace it with a told year old camera (A4), calling it an upgrade--beware.

Image quality is really excellent, much more better than more expensive 5 MP cameras I have tested before (Pentax Optio S5Z & HP Photosmart R807). For only 199 euros, this camera delivers sharp still pictures and movies, with very low noise levels. The movie mode is excellent too, with sharp pictures, mpeg4 compression, VGA size at 30 fps, and able to zoom while recording.
