Cheap, point and shoot second-hand buy

  • Excerpt: "Overview I purchased this model for £100 back in Christmas 2000. The image quality at the time was good for the price and to be fair, it is still a good, robust "point and shoot" camera for those who require just the occasional snap. Don't expect it to capture images of depth with any clarity, I.E. scenic views of rolling hills fading into the distance, as it won't. They will be grainy at best. This little camera is best used where the subject ...
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Cons: Image quality, slow RS232 interface to PC, battey consumption

Ideal first camera

  • Excerpt: "I purchased this camera in early 2000 for about £110. FIRST IMPRESSIONS The first thing that I noticed about this camera was it's weight, or lack of it. Even with batteries, it seems to weigh almost nothing. This is ideal, as I carry this camera round almost everywhere. This has proved useful as great picture opportunities are rare. One downside I first noticed however was it's flimsy appearance, which lets down a good camera. CONNECTIVITY The ...
  • Pros: Great value, light and easy to use
  • Cons: Battery life

Samsung Digimax 800k

  • Excerpt: "The first thing I noticed about this camera is that the batteries became flat at an incredibly fast rate, so a good starting point with this one is to take a large supply of batteries with you!! Another thing I realised is that if you try to take a relatively close-up picture of a person, for example, with the flash on then their face is rather scarily white, whereas without the flash they look a bit dark and dull. I'm guessing this could be easily ...
  • Pros: Small, lightweight, easy to use
  • Cons: No LCD screen, can only be bought 2nd hand now

  • Excerpt: "The Digimax 800 was bundled with my new PC so I didn't reckon it much to start with. Using it for the first time on holiday in Thailand I was really surprised by the ease with which it took pictures in some really varied situations and, when I downloaded onto the hotel computer I was mostly impressed with the quality of the images. OK, so the sharpness leaves a bit to be desired and, sometimes, the focus isn't quite right (probably down to my ...
  • Pros: Unfussy, light, quick and simple to use

  • Excerpt: "Summary Budget low end camera, lightweight, simple to use, OK for web page pics. Price I paid about £120 for mine, and I bought an extra storage card (best price is Jessops own brand). Macro are doing the camera for about £80 at the moment. Quality If you are lucky with the light, ie fairly low light, then the pictures can look quite good. Most of the time they are very poor quality, bright areas tend to merge as one colour. Flash photography ...
  • Pros: Cheap, light, easy to use, no film .
  • Cons: Can give poor results, no zoom, lense is not wide angle

  • Excerpt: "The Digimax has now come down in price to around £100 (Curreys were selling it for £150, but dropped the price to £95 without a quibble when I told them I could get it elsewhere for that) Picture quality is fine but the flash is less than brilliant. The camera is very light dependant, takes great pictures in good light (100ASA rating), but it's decidedly iffy in poor light. The flash has a very limited range, get too close and it's whiteout, too ...

Digimax 800k - a little gem!

21 September 2000
  • Excerpt: "I bought the Samsung Digimax 800k digital camera as I was a complete beginner in digital photography and wanted to get a general idea of what it is all about without spending too much money. I have had the camera nearly a year and am very impressed with it. By today's standards the resolution (which determines the picture sharpness) is very low, however the picture quality from the Digimax suggests a much higher resolution. This makes it ideal for ...
  • Pros: Inexpensive; easy to use; fine for emails and webpages
  • Cons: Lack of screen; too basic for most non - web applications

  • Excerpt: "...so we settled on the Samsung Digimax 800k, which cost us £150.00. We've not used one before, so I can;t really compare it to anything, but from what we've seen of this one, it's pretty good. It's easy to download the pictures onto the pc, and very easy to use. You just point it and press the button. Simple! I honestly have no idea how many pictures it will take in one go before the memory becomes full, as we've always downloaded it after we've ...

  • Excerpt: "Samsung’s Digimax 800K is a great little camera for those wanting to play around with digital images but is more suited to complete beginners rather than expert photographers. It’s priced fairly reasonably compared to others and the first thing I noticed about it, was how light and plasticky it seems to be. The camera comes in a small silver plastic body and is incredibly lightweight, less than 200g. At first appearance, you would be ...

  • Excerpt: "We recently moved house and went on a bit of a spending spree with our profit. One of the things we bought was the digicam, and for the price it's great. At £150, it's definetly at the lower end of the price market, but from what we've seen of it so far, it's excellent. It's so easy to take pictures - you literally just point and click. Then when you're ready, you just plug it into your pc and download the images. The picture quality has been ...
  • Pros: Good picture quality for the price
  • Cons: None
