The Digimax S800 has a large 2.4" LCD for improved contrast and colour reproduction, allowing you to enjoy a wider and clearer image.
The Digimax S800 has some great special effect functions - including Highlight, Photo Frame and Composite Shot - to help you customise your favourite pictures. Just one touch of the "E" button gives you direct access to each of these special effects.
When set to Auto Mode, the Digimax S800 automatically adjusts the focusing distance from 4cm to infinity, helping you take great macro shots without any fuss. For subjects closer than 4cm, simply switch the mode dial to Macro for crisp, clear close-up shots.
The powerful video capability of the Digimax S800 delivers a "camcorder like" experience. For the ultimate movie shooting capability, the Digimax L85 uses MPEG-4, the high-compression high-quality movie format, which can record for up to 3-4 times longer than traditional movie formats used in many other digital cameras. With powerful movie recording in VGA (640X480) at 30fps, it provides a wider screen view and clearer movie quality. These movies can even be viewed in perfect quality on a TV.
The Digimax S800 has a movie stabiliser function ensures steady movie recordings by automatically detecting and correcting lateral and vertical camera movements.
The Successive Recording function of the Digimax S800, which is based on exclusive Samsung technology, allows you to pause and resume video recording as desired and merge multiple movies into a single file.
The family-friendly mode dial - with Night, Portrait and Children modes - make it easier to get great shots of the family by giving in stand access to the appropriate mode for each individual situation. Children mode, with its open aperture and fast shutter speeds, lets you 'freeze' children in fast moving action shots. Night mode automatically uses the slow synchronization function to help you get clearer and brighter pictures at night. Portrait mode gives you good images of people, with natural, realistic skin tones and improved redeye reduction.
The Digimax S800s print button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the S800 to any PictBridge compatible photo printer, press the illuminated print button and print! Also use the button to transfer images directly to a computer.
