Summary: I did not see any info for i5 camera and would never know about its existence - do USA magazines censor this camera? I needed a camera to take quick shots of small objects at work. After extensive search, I found i5 sold only in 2 places. Strange? This is free market? Anyway, as i5 is mentioned and praised in US "news" like much worse cameras are mentioned and praised, I feared i5 might be something bad, not worth attention, "lemon" product.
I'm on camera #3 now because of shutter problems....

Summary: I bought this camera in January 2006. Used it for about 2 weeks and the shutter started sticking, opening occasionally, then not at all. Exchanged it hoping it was just that camera. Now I'm taking the second camera back 4 months later, it started in with shutter problems, not opening again. I thought maybe it was related to battery life..
Summary: I had it repaired within 1st month bought it. The image was distorted, and there are many dark horizontal lines through. The service center was prompted though, they told me something wrong with the lens barrel, and had it fixed on the same day. But then 1 month after the repair, similar problem came back. There are many dark horizontal lines, and image is over-exposed. I'm gonna send in for another repair soon.
Summary: Purchase requirements were a small, easy to use, 5mp camera with limited moving parts. Person using the camera is not tech savvy. The camera is the size of a credit card and about as thick as the diameter of a dime. Very large lcd viewer for both framing the subject and reviewing pictures. I recommend adding a fast write capable SD card, so shop carefully. Overall stellar performer and in my opinion the best product for the requirements sought.
Summary: I chose this camera over the Canon Ixus range, the Sony cybershots, the Nikon S1 and S3, the Fuji Z1 and the Olympus range. Reason - Saw most of the cameras in various shops (all great pieces of electronics) however the samsung was well priced and had one or two slightly better features in the price range and above. Size - Perfect (small) Build - Solid, robust Picture quality - Very good Video - 30fps. Awesome, I thought I wouldn't use it but it is very handy.
Excerpt: "As far as I am concerned the Digimax I5 is a fantastic little camera. The case is of a high build quality and looks fantastic. Made from brushed aluminium, it looks great and is functional to. The pictures are great, with vibrant colours and gret contrast. The only problem I have noticed is that when shooting in dark conditions large 'bubbles' appear on the photos. I am not sure as to the cause, but this can really ruin some photos. Another thing ...
Excerpt: "...a 1GB card whereas the Samsung shot about 40 minutes and 100 pics with still loads of room left for more. Another feature is the ability to use the zoom on video clips which, at present, I'm sure is unique to Samsung. Similarly, the video recording can also be paused then resumed to produce longer clips including different scenes without having to make a series of individual clips then spend hours at the PC trying to link them all together!

Pros: Small size . Impressive range of features
Cons: Red - eye due to flash position next to lens
