Summary: The Samsung L77 works well for me. While the pushbutton controls are quirky, a little practice and I've become pretty good at operating this camera. I very much like the 7X optical telephoto lens because that allows me to carry only one camera, and in my shirt pocket! I also very much like that this camera does all that inside and nothing sticks out when turned on, or when adjusting the telephoto lens. The quality is high. The metal case is durable.
Summary: When I got this camera, I liked the fact that it was 7.1 MP and had 7x optical zooming in such a compact design. However, I am disappointed by the image quality of this camera. When in under bright lights and ideal conditions, the image quality is good. However, in low light or if you turn the anti-shake off, the image quality is horrible. It is too bad because I really wished this could be a good grab and go kind of camera.
Summary: I ordered this camera after reading many reviews from others that have purchased this camera. When I got it I was happy with it's size and quality however...you can't buy an extra battery ANYWHERE! I brought it in to many different camera stores and nobody even heard of the camera. And all the paperwork that comes with the camera didn't even provide you with a place to order extra batteries. I even went to the Samsung website and this camera wasn't on there..
Summary: I've had this camera for a month now and it's been good to me so far. It's user friendly. My six year old knows how to use it. I haven't tried all the features yet but the ones I've tried has been satisfactory. I don't know about the shake reduction part cause the pictures I took when I shook still came out semi blury. The other feature I didn't really like was the time it took between shutters but the camera did snap the pictures up before everyone moved.
Summary: I purchased the Cannon Digimax L77 for my wife at Christmas. It had great reviews from Consumer Reports and is a steadfast consumer name in electronics and photography. The camera takes great pictures and has quick successive shots. It came with the A.C. charger for its tiny battery.The only real problem I see with it is that I couldn't find any D.C. or car chargers for the battery.
Summary: Took the camera to France for 8 days on it's maiden voyage. Took over 700 photos at 3Megapixel setting on one 2 GB card. No problems using auto or any specific programable setting. Small size makes it easy to carry around and have handy at any time. One wish I have is that user could select a preference for flash on or off when set on auto. As it is default programmed, you must turn flash off, or it will flash if light condions favor flash use.
Summary: The subject said it all. The spec looks good, exactly what I want. but after using it for a while, I'm not very enthusastic about it anymore. There is a bad pixel that not only shows up in the LCD screen but also in the pictures taken. decide to return it. Pro: 1. 7x zoom 2. compact and light weight 3. capture movie in mpeg4, 7x optical zoom available in movie mood Con: 1. image quality is awful with maximum zoom, image stabilization not working at all 2.
Summary: The description makes it sound so sophisticated: "Advanced Shake Reduction"."An embedded Gyro-sensor recognises hand shake and memorises the camera shake data when the picture is taken, automatically adjusting the image for perfect clarity." ... It's a little annoying because it doesn't just work automatically, but you have to manually change the camera into this EPS-mode, and while in this mode, the flash is inoperable. Also, page 18 of the manual warns you: "5.
