Samsung ES55 Digital Camera - Pretty, Functional and Hardcor ...
30 June 2011
Summary: Alright, I admit it - I'm a bit of a Samsung freak. Having had a poolside incident with my last camera, I saw the ES55 in Boots for £99 - around two years ago now, and thought I'd snap it up (gotta love Triple Advantage Card Points!). It was with me for around 18 months until my little boy decided to chew on it, when I promptly replaced it with exactly the same model. It wasnt just down to the very reasonable price - I simply love the camera .
Summary: `People always say that that I take too many pictures. Whenever the kids are messy, clean, sleeping or awake, I see it as an opportunity to take a photograph. The only thing is I never really had a good camera , I used to buy disposables and get just them printed, but the running costs of doing this were too high, so I started looking for a digital one. I went through one or two before I bought this one for my trip to see my fiancé. It was £65.
Summary: Great looking camera for the price. I'm not a huge fan of Samsung cameras preferring Panasonic or Sony, however this camera is quite smart looking for a Samsung Budget Camera. REtailing at £58 approx what you get for your money is a great little camera. It has a brushed steel effect finish which clearly is nicer looking than the plastic finish of other Samsung models. It also boasts a large 2.5" Intelligent LCD screen which makes viewing pictures and menu options easy.
Excerpt: "i bought this camera not a long ago, very happy with it, great pictures, very easy to use, light and well designed. It has video recorder too, many picture colour options, as well as macro, different flash set ups. shortly after i purchased mine, my dad saw it and loved it, which is a big this as he like things easy so i bought one for my dad, and they have no problem using it! it is small but the screen is big. you can choose from three colours, ...
Pros: easy to use, light, great pictures, many edit options
Summary: I recieved this fantastic camera last year as a gift for my birthday. Within a few days after recieving it, unfortunately another family member had dropped it causing the camera lense to break. I immediately contacted Samsung , and within a week of sending my camera back to them to fix it, they sent me out the same brand new camera free of charge. Great company! This camera takes fantastic pictures and videos and is probably just as good as any other top SLR cameras .
Summary: I bought this camera from Boots at a good price. It is a nice stylish looking camera and reasonably slim. There is no memory card included so I had to spend around £10 more on a 1gb memory card, I didn't realise the extra cost when I bought it. Also, it doesn't come with a camera case as some of the other cameras do so again I had to spend around £5 for a good sturdy case.

Summary: I have been searching for a nice and easy, point-and-shoot digital camera for ages- the Canon Powershot killed batteries within minutes, the Nikon Coolpix ironically didn't take very cool pics, basically they just didn't live up to my expectations. Don't get me wrong, I'm a teacher not a photographer , but all I wanted was a camera which takes good quality photos, for not much money (as it would probably get covered in paint/glue/playdoh).
Summary: I got this camera for my son, u might laugh, he is only 4-1/2 yrs old. He loved when we were on our holiday and we would buy him a disposable camera to start with knowing that if it was dropped not much damage would come to it and they r pretty cheap. Because he enjoyed taking the pics and everytime we spent money on 2 or 3 disposable camera's and ok photo's, i decided it was probably worth buying him a real camera as he was very careful with it and in the end it would...
Pros: flash and video playback with sound.
Cons: it's my son's camera for xmas and not mine. I'll be getting one as i'm jealous lol
