About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Samsung's TL500 camera creates extremely sharp and vibrant photographs, thanks to one of the highest-quality lenses you'll find in a point and shoot camera. However, its high price and small zoom lens makes it a camera more suited to intermediate and advanced photographers.
  • Pros: Image quality is extremely high, thanks to high-quality lens and image sensor, Sharp 3.0-inch AMOLED screen can rotate and swivel, Menu structure is very easy to use and is well organized, TL500's low-light capabilities are outstanding, Camera works well in both advanced and fully automatic modes
  • Cons: Optical zoom lens is only 3X, Manufacturer's suggested price is a bit high, Noise can be excessive at high ISOs, Maximum video resolution is VGA

  • Conclusion: An impressive all round compact camera available at a reasonable price point. Aimed more at the intermediate to professional photographer wanting a compact alternative to an SLR to hand when shooting.

16 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Признаться, только ознакомившись с характеристиками Samsung EX1 , мы уже ждали от него довольно многого. Очевидно, что создатели фотоаппарата намеривались поставить его в один ряд с такими “монстрами” рынка, как Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX-3 и Canon PowerShot G11 .
  • Pros: отличное качество сборки, металлический корпус;, позволяющий снимать с более короткими выдержками сверхсветосильный зум-объектив;, 3-дюймовый поворотный AMOLED-дисплей высокого разрешения;, съемка в формате RAW;, башмак для установки внешней вспышки;, удобное управление.
  • Cons: низкое разрешение видеосъемки;, малоэффективный стабилизатор.

Samsung EX1, óptica correcta en un modelo de peso

PC Actual
11 April 2011
  • Excerpt: La EX1 ha entrado bien, es correcta y destaca en algunos aspectos, como la óptica, pero falla en otros como el tele o el vídeo, con una resolución para grabar que no supera los 640 x 480 puntos
  • Pros: Óptica luminosa con f/1,8 y angular de 24 mm, Pantalla giratoria de 3" AMOLED, Numerosos controles en el cuerpo de la cámara para ajustar parámetros fotográficos con un toque, Modos de escena fáciles de usar
  • Cons: Tele de solo 72 mm, Su tamaño y peso son excesivos, La autonomía es mejorable, Calidad del vídeo, sobre todo en resolución

16 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Die Samsung EX1 gehört zu einer Kategorie an Digitalkameras, von denen es heute nur eine geringe Zahl gibt. Sie nimmt bewusst einige Einschränkungen in Kauf, um in anderen Bereichen Höchstleistungen zu bringen.
  • Pros: Äußerst lichtstarke Marken-Zoomoptik: Schneider-Kreuznach Varioplan F1,8-2,4, Diese Lichtstärke ist derzeit Weltrekord bei einer digitalen Kompaktkamera, Weitwinkel bereits ab 24mm (nach KB), Optischer Bildstabilisator arbeitet effektiv, Programm-, Blenden-, Zeitautomatik und manueller Modus vorh...
  • Cons: Nur 3,0faches optisches Zoom (24 bis 72mm nach KB), Die Automatik der Kamera überbelichtet in manchen Situationen deutlich, Filmen nur in 640 x 480 Pixel möglich (keine HD Videoaufzeichnung möglich), Während dem Filmen wird die Schärfe nicht aktiv nachgeführt, Relativ hohe Tonnenverzeichnung im W...
