CameraTown.comCameraTown reviews Samsung Digimax i5 : Our good friend Ron Risman from CameraTown has published his review of the new Samsung Digimax i5 digital camera. The stylish mini Samsung i5 camera has a attractive design, great quality and state of the art technology used in the best way possible. Special features of the Samsung Digimax i5 include an efficient video mode, internal memory, a pleasantly large LCD colour screen and a Safety Flash function. These new features all together will provide blur-free photographs without lightning. The 1.7 cm flat Digimax i5 from Samsung features 3x optical zoom (39-117 mm/F3.5-4.5 equivalent of a 35mm camera), a 5-Megapixel-CCD-Chip and on-board electronics fully packed with functions.
Cameratown reviews Samsung Digimax i5Samsung i5 camera - Recording
When taking a picture with the Samsung Digimax i5, you can use the SHD zoom function (SHD stands for "Samsung High definition"). In addition the picture can be stabilized electronically in the video mode, and a special Pause/Resume button makes it possible to interrupt and/or continue the recordings for a short moment. After recording the video, redundant scenes can be cut out of the video; for further editing of the videos taken with the Digimax i5, you can use ArcSoft VideoImpression software.

Digimax i5 digital camera - Exposure test
According to Ron Risman: "Considering the fact that the Samsung i5 lacks a tripod mount, I was very surprised with its excellent low light ability. When you select NIGHT mode, the i5 gives you the ability to adjust the shutter of the camera all the way from 1 second to 16 seconds. The long-exposure was surprisingly clean from noise, very unexpected in a camera of this size and feature set. Now, if only Samsung had added a tripod mount."

Samsung Digimax i5 - Image quality
Ron continues: "Image quality was about average for a compact digital camera. While images in most lighting conditions were fairly well exposed, image noise brought down overall sharpness. Noise wouldn't be too noticeable in prints up to 5"x7" in size but on larger prints noise becomes more apparent. Pictures shot with the i5 seem to lack contrast and color saturation, although you can increase the Red, Green, and Blue values a bit within the camera."

Samsung i5 digital camera review - Conclusion
Ups and downs is the message to this new Samsung Digimax digital camera. Like Ron writes in his review: "The camera performed satisfactory under most lighting conditions, but performance was only average. I was also surprised by the lack of a sports mode. The camera also features a superb super macro mode which should be considered if you often take pictures of small objects (think ebay auctions). Long exposures (night mode) seem to be one of the high points of the Samsung i5. A 12-second exposure taken in a dimly lit room yielded bright, sharp, clean results."
