Samsung L700 Digital Camera

Mike Tomkins writes, “If pricing and simplicity are your main goals in a camera and you don’t do a lot of low-light shooting, the Samsung L700 could fit the bill. For quick daytime snapshots that aren’t likely to be printed to large sizes, the results are generally quite acceptable. If you’re looking to exercise much control over the final look of your images, or image quality is paramount in your decision however, then the Samsung L700 probably isn’t the camera for you.”

He says the Samsung L700 is a reasonably attractive, nicely built and affordable digital camera aimed at the entry level end of the market. Despite some quirks, the design is reasonably user-friendly, and image quality is fair at lower ISO sensitivities.

“Crank the sensitivity up a bit though, and the resulting images get rather soft and noisy. Add in an autofocus system that fails to achieve focus lock too often in low light, and you won’t want to be shooting in those conditions too much,” Mike cautions.
