  • Excerpt: The Samsung Digimax A55W is an entry-level whose standout feature is its 28 mm, 4.8X wide-angle lens. The A55W is probably the cheapest wide-angle camera you can buy, with a street price of just $231. In addition to the wide-angle lens, it also features a 5 Megapixel CCD, 2.5" LCD display, and MPEG-4 movie mode.
  • Pros: Wide-angle, 4.8X zoom lens for very little cash, Large 2.5" LCD display (though see issues below), Well built plastic body; metal tripod mount a nice touch, Very nice movie mode, USB 2.0 High Speed support
  • Cons: So-so photo quality, Poor showing in redeye and night shot tests, Noticeable shutter lag, slow focusing, Poor low light focusing, despite AF-assist lamp, LCD not usable in low light; screen didn't seem terribly sharp either, Sluggish continuous shooting mode; LCD blacks out during shooting, Unusual menu system could use some refinement, No Mac software included

  • Excerpt: Il design semplice e lineare della Samsung Digimax A55W e la pratica disposizione dei comandi semplificano al massimo l’utilizzo di questa robusta fotocamera. La DIGIMAX A55W utilizza un LCD ad alta risoluzione che consente di fotografare inquadrando i soggetti su uno schermo ampio e nitido. Per chi utilizza spesso le funzioni video, l’ampio LCD rende questa fotocamera un valido sostituto della videocamera.
