  • Excerpt: The Digimax V4 ($449) is the first Samsung camera that I've reviewed in some time. It's a compact 4 Megapixel camera that is reminiscent of the Sony P-series cameras. One of the features that Samsung likes to brag about is the V4's ability to use 9 different types of battery sources. Samsung is stretching things a bit here, counting things like NiMn and NiCd batteries -- does anyone actually use those anymore?
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (colors seem a little dull though), Can use multiple types of batteries, AF illuminator, Many manual controls, Super macro mode for shots as close as 6 cm, Good redeye test performance, Can save 3 sets of settings to spot on mode wheel
  • Cons: Colors seem unsaturated, Image playback is quite slow, AF times slower than average, Movie mode resolution is lower than average, Zoom controller can be unresponsive, Flash defaults to "on" when camera is turned on, No Mac compatible software included

16 July 2003
  • Excerpt: Samsung's new Digimax V4 has been a great leap forward in proving to consumers that Samsung are the real deal when it comes to digital cameras. There is plenty to like about this compact, starting with its quality Schneider lens and 4 megapixel capture. The body has a smooth warm silver finish and is a comfortable weight to work with, or store in a jacket pocket.

Samsung Digimax V4

  • Excerpt: There's nothing unique or exceptional about the Samsung Digimax V4. But it's a good-looking, well-designed, reasonably priced 4.0-megapixel compact camera. The Digimax V4's muted-gray plastic body has a curved ridge in front and raised bumps on the back for a sure grip. The camera can be used one-handed, but with some buttons placed to the left of the LCD, you'll need both hands to adjust all the settings.

Samsung Makes a Splash in Digital Cameras

PC Magazine
10 July 2003
  • Excerpt: Samsung has reentered the digital camera marketplace with a bang. The Samsung Digimax V4 ($450 street) is one of the first offerings in Samsung's completely revamped line-up. The 4-megapixel V4 is a pocket-size compact camera with an impressive array of features packed into an attractive, metallic-looking plastic body. Once regarded as a minor-league player in the consumer electronics business, Samsung has been on a tear in recent years.
