Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review
16 September 2005
  • Excerpt: Introduction The Samsung Digimax i5 is definitely an eye-catcher. The brushed stainless steel case and minimal clutter on the front of the camera give it a really nice look. It's also hard to resist turning it on and off repeatedly when you first get it just to see the lens cover slide back and forth. This ultra-compact camera features a 5 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom in a non-protruding lens with a 2.5 inch LCD.

  • Excerpt: The Digimax i5 ($350) is Samsung's entry into the very crowded ultra thin camera market. The i5 features a 5 Megapixel CCD, 3X optical zoom lens, large 2.5" LCD display, and VGA movie mode. If that sounds like every other cameras in this class, you're right. But the Digimax i5 has a very interested features of its own, and I'll cover those in this review. Let's begin!
  • Pros: Compact and stylish metal body; comes in three colors, Very good photo quality (though see issues below), Many manual controls, Large, high resolution 2.5" LCD display (though low light visibility could be better), Tons of built-in memory (50MB), VGA (30 fps) movie mode, USB 2.0 High Speed support, Nice macro mode
  • Cons: Photos could be sharper; noise a bit above average, Noticeable shutter lag, Poor low light focusing despite having an AF-assist lamp, Continuous shooting mode borders on useless: LCD turned off during shooting; frame rate is sluggish as well, Redeye, Weak flash; Safety Flash isn't great, Menu system is untraditional and can be frustrating, No tripod mount, Not very Mac friendly: no bundled software, difficulty playing back movies

The i5 takes some very sharp images and is excellent at capturing all manner of tonal ranges. A simple, stylish and easy to use pocket sized camera that is likely to please the beginners and the enthusiasts.

Röviden: Samsung Digimax i5

5 December 2006
  • Summary: A Samsung komolyan veszi a fotópiac meghódítását: ennek legbiztosabb jele az új, 5 megapixeles, Digimax i5 jelzésű ultrakompakt, magyar nyelvű menüvel. Nemcsak kicsi és gyors, de videós és szupermakró képességeivel kitűnik a mezőnyből - ráadásul még szép is.

  • Excerpt: Non si può dire che la Samsung sia una marca molto incline ai grandiosi prodotti fotografici. In parte, succede come alla Casio, che per molto bene che lo faccia, nessuno -o quasi nessuno- le prende sul serio. Nel caso della Digimax i5, la Samsung ha rischiato tutto, disposta a cacciare via la scarsa fama fotografica che la precede. Questa compatta non soltanto conta su un design semplicemente eccezionale, ma offre 5 megapixel di grandissima qualità.
  • Pros: buona qualità di immagine, eccellenti design e costruzione, notevole display da 2,5 pollici, consumo energetico efficiente…
  • Cons: angolare un po' corto, scarsa luminosità dell'obiettivo, messa a fuoco migliorabile in situazioni di poca luce, zoom troppo lento...

  • Excerpt: Samsung veut concurrencer les leaders de la photographie numérique. Pour cela il n'hésite pas à sortir les gros moyens. Avec le Digimax i5, c'est directement Nikon et son S1 qui sont visés. Cet ultra compact reprend le design sobre et classe de son concurrent. Il est même un peu plus mince avec ses 1,7 mm de profondeur.
  • Pros: Design et compacité, Simplicité d'utilisation, Mode vidéo
  • Cons: Piqué trop faible
