I took a long time before deciding to post this. I bought this Pro815 on 17 June 06. I can take good pictures clearly even at 420mm zoom during a bright day. But I have yet succesfully took a zoomed picture without blur at night. Lucky for me I rarely shoot at night. ISO only reach 400 but at 400 it looks good for me. Not sure how but I once actually manage to take a picture at night in my room without the light on, curtain on and picture came out brighter than what I can see, as if it can ...

I have read some of the user reviews of this camera. Some over the top, others pretty damning. Some opinions appear to be by people who have not properly used this camera. Yes, there is some noise in images at high ISO's, but this is generally the same as other 8MP camera, just with different noise reduction. Yes, the camera is heavy, and large. But if you're used to 35mm cameras this should not be a problem, just as using a tripod shouldn't be. I used this in Thailand along with a Kodak ...

This is my first purchase at the top end of the compact camera market, and I'm happy to say that it's been the best investment I've made in cameras to date. I've had my 815 for a little over 6 months now, and it's going strong. The versatility of the camera is immense. Almost everything I try do on "Auto" turns out perfect, and when the system seems to be unsure how to set the shot, it's easy to switch to manual (MF or M) and use it's guidance to finish it. The grip is perfectly sized for my ...

I have been using this camera for about a month. This is a wonderful, perhaps the greatest non-SLR camera available. It's sophisticated manual function and diverse modes are parallel to that of dSLR. They are easy to use. If one is just a bit familiar with manual mode, he/she will get a great picture that is very rewarding. This camera is not surely for a beginner who wants point and shot. also great is a RAW format. It opens up a new door to a photographic art. Amazingly they all came ...

Bought it on 9th of june at 6:30 PM, return it next morning at 9:00 AM. After a few hours with this piece of junk, the only this i can say is that i'm really desapointed, . The image quality is absolutly terrible, noise and noise even in low iso, no image stabilization, dificult to get a shot in low light condition, to be honest with you i couldn't get a decent shot (and i've done lot's of shot tests).what a deception. I will never buy again another Samsung Camera.

Good camera. The battery life, contrary to previous reviews, is excellent - I shot an entire 5 day holiday on 1 charge (& filled severeal cards doing so). The focus hunts a little too much at the maximal zoom but the optics are awesome with great clarity. The LCD although very large is a little overkill except for viewing picttures later. It's easier to shoot through the eyepiece. The small LCD on the top is very useful for tripod & shooting from the hip shots. It's a heavy beast but solidly ...

While I didn't mind the construction of the camera at all OR disaprove of the features, I'd say this camera is nothing short of a turkey. Why? Do you ask? Problems: BAD colour rendering- blues and reds just don't turn out! Why? BAD noise at low ISO- noise during day shots at 200 ISO BAD write times to the CF card- so slooooowwwww Aweful battery life! ...don't buy this camera!

After 2 months of use I can tell just it, the Digimax Pro 815, for my one man show opinion is a great camera. Pro : When you hold the 815 in hand, you hear a great feeling of solidity and sturdiness. The change of the diaphragm and the times I do it with so much simplicity without tearing off the eye from the viewfinder (this for me is a great thing). With my preceding camera (display 1,8 inches) without realizing me of it I didn't often frame in full the subject. With the enormous 815 ...
