Excerpt: Introduction The Samsung S830 digital camera is a rather newer model than most of those in my diigicam collection: it was released as recently as 2007, and boasts an 8.1-megapixel resolution that is still respectable four years later. That resolution, incidentally, is more than enough for a compact as long as it's well put together: it cannot be stressed enough that a 14 mp camera does not necessarily give better quality output simply because its headline numbers are...
Pros: Photo quality generally good, can be picked up cheaply, plenty of features, manual mode of a sort
Cons: No aperture/shutter - priority, flash isn't entirely reliable, slightly disappointing battery life
Excerpt: I wanted a affordable digi cam with a proper optical zoom, and I thought the Samsung S830 would fit the bill. However, although it featured 3 x optical zoom and a 8Mpixel picture quality, it also featured what seems to be a feature of other Samsung products. An impressive spec list powered by an extreme hunger for battery life. The camera kept going dead, and wouldn't even start up with brand new batteries.
Pros: Cheap, and easy to use . Good specs and features for price at time
Cons: kills batteries in a short time . You need ultra high capacity rechargeables . 2700 AMPH minimum
Excerpt: Firstly, this camera is a basic point and shoot model and only has basic manual control, so is not recommended for an enthusiast. However, for someone who just wants good quality snaps of friends, family and whatever they happen to see around them, the s830 will do very nicely. I must point out though that this camera is a bit chunky compared to modern cameras and will not fit in your trouser pocket. The camera does, however, feel quite strong.
Pros: Picture quality, 8mp, easy to use
Cons: Relatively chunky, no manual control, eats AA batteries (use at least 2300mAh rechargeable)
Excerpt: My Need For The Camera As a design student, I was in desperate need of a cheap camera, but that packed some punch at the same time. Although this went over my initial spending budget I have no regrets. I guess if I lost it, I would love to replace it, not sure I'd have the money though! Maybe I should take out some insurance! Basics The S830 is your standard digital camera. It can take we have red eye flash, lighting level flash, standard and none.
Pros: 8megapixels, variety of features and tools, plug and play, large LCD screen and mpeg4 capturing
Excerpt: This camera is good, but don't rely on it for long term use. After a moths use of this camera it completly gave up and i was unable to view pictures taken previously let alone take new ones. It began to reject betteries both new and old and said that the batteries were "empty". When i went to return the camera i met someone returning the same camera quoting similar problems with hers, so this is not a one off case.
Excerpt: A really good camera if used little in cool weather. Don't trust this camera for a long period of time! I took it on holiday for four weeks and it broke at the end of the holiday, however it did take some very good quality pictures in a variety of modes. Good overall, although ensure that it is insured and not with Currys as their customer service was awful when trying to return the camera after just four weeks. A camera to be used at home for family albums.
Excerpt: I have just bought this camera a week ago. Since then I have taken excellent quality photos with the 8 megapixel mode. You can change the quality of photos that you take and the movie function makes it easy to record movies and store them to your computer. The large LCD screen makes it easier to see the photo that you have taken before connecting it to the PC.
Pros: affordable, very good quality photos, mpeg 4 function
Excerpt: You can just say : "great value for low price", great resolution of pictures, when you use zooming in quality of pics is good as well. You can choose from auto ,night ,portrait or children modes or one of 7 scene modes (landscape, close up, sunset, dawn, backlight, firework, beach&snow). After taking pictures you can resize them in your camera & you don't need pc for that, isn't it great?
