Samsung Digimax L74 Wide

CNET
9 October 2008
  • Summary: A wide lens and nifty tour guide feature simply can't redeem the Samsung L74 Wide from its poor image quality, slow shooting, and irritating interface.
  • Pros: Wide lens; large screen; World Tour Guide is a fun if not terribly useful feature.
  • Cons: Slow performance; noisy, fringe-filled photos; touch screen interface is a pain.

Camera Test: Samsung L74 Wide

Pop Photo
1 May 2008
  • Excerpt: The gunmetal grey Samsung L74 Wide (street, $240) is a slim 7.2-megapixel digital camera with a true wide angle 28-101mm f/2.8-5.6 (35 mm equivalent) lens, cool styling, and an easy-to-operate touchscreen interface. Throw in some fun extras and an entertaining (if not always 100% accurate) built-in Tour Guide and you've got the ultimate class-trip camera.

  • Excerpt: The Samsung L74 Wide ($300) is a rather unique digital camera. Not for its design, wide-angle lens, SVGA movie mode, or huge touchscreen LCD, though all of those make it appealing. What really separates the L74 from the rest of the crowd its its enormous amount of onboard memory (450MB to be exact) and a built-in world travel guide. That's right, the L74W can give you information (albeit very basic) about popular tourist destinations around the world.
  • Pros: Stylish, very well built body, Wide-angle lens starts at 28mm, Huge, 3-inch touchscreen LCD display, Advanced Shake Reduction works fairly well, though slows down shot-to-shot speeds, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, Very little redeye; removal tool available if it does occur, High res movie mode with optical zoom and digital image stabilization; user can "pause" recording, "Interesting" World Tour Guide, Enormous amount of built-in memory, Optional remote con...
  • Cons: Images are soft and fuzzy; some overexposure and blown highlights, Poor white balance in mixed lighting, Touchscreen user interface can be slow and frustrating to use, LCD difficult to see outdoors, No optical viewfinder, Unimpressive continuous shooting mode, Video quality not the best; choppy frame rate at highest resolution, World Tour Guide not terribly useful, and sometimes inaccurate, No Mac software included

  • Excerpt: From Apple's eagerly awaited iPhone to an entire generation of sat navs, touchscreens are all the rage. They promise intuitive access to features and an end to complex menus. But are they suited to cameras?

Samsung L74W Review

Digital Camera Review
6 July 2007
  • Excerpt: If you've never used a touch-screen digital camera before, it's definitely a different sort of experience than your typical digital camera.  The 7.2 megapixel Samsung L74W offers a 3 inch touch sensitive panel with which to change the shooting settings.  The only "real" buttons used during image capture are the shutter release and zoom control (for the 3.6x optical zoom).

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Digimax L74 is a digital camera full of good intentions. My own feeling is that when it comes to picture quality it is half a yard of the pace in places. It is not a bad camera, but there are a number of rivals I prefer. Having said that when you look at the price tag it is very reasonably priced.
  • Pros: Looks good - feels good it the hand - large LCD screen - after photo effects - massive internal memory
  • Cons: Shutter lag

Samsung L74 Wide

PhotoReview
7 October 2011
  • Summary: A well-built digicam with touch-screen control and on-board tour guide.With its matte black body, slim lines and huge LCD touch-screen, Samsung's 7.2-megapixel L74 Wide is an attractive looking digicam which, as its name suggests, sports a wide zoom lens. The 3.6x optical zoom range starts at the equivalent of 28mm in 35mm format and extends to 101mm, a useful range for everyday photographers. . .

  • Summary: This is totally different from almost any other digital camera I have reviewed as almost all the settings are adjusted from the TFT touchscreen , certainly a first for me.
