Samsung DigiMax S850 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 7.67 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "The S850 is an 8-megapixel, sub-$250 shooter with full manual exposure controls, giving frugal photographers plenty of settings to tinker with. Manual mode even has a convenient onscreen meter that tells you if your photo will be over- or underexposed, an extremely useful tool when tweaking all the settings by hand. Strangely, the camera doesn't have a manual focus setting, forcing you to choose between center and multipoint autofocus. ...

... As one of the least expensive cameras with manual exposure controls out there, the Samsung S850 is a great choice for young or inexperienced photographers who want to step beyond simple snapshooting, without investing more than $250. While it suffers from flaws like slow shot-to-shot time, a narrow lens, and slight underexposing, you'd be hard pressed to find a better training camera for the price."

Review (Summary): "The Samsung S850 is a reasonably priced, full-featured point and shoot camera. It offers 8.1 megapixel resolution, a 5x optical zoom, 2.5 inch LCD, and a full complement of manual exposure modes. While it does have manual exposure modes, it doesn't include some of the trendiest features - optical image stabilization or face detection. ...

... The Samsung S850 is a nice-looking, well equipped compact digital camera. It has the nice looks that the Samsung NV line brought to the market with black body, blue accents and quality construction. It also has a full complement of manual exposure modes that isn't seen as often in point and shoots. ..."
