This review is from: Samsung L310W Digital Camera - Black (13MP, 3.6x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (Electronics)
I own bigger, more expensive cameras for doing "serious" photography, mostly landscape, but I wanted something that I could stick in a pocket to carry around all the time and didn't cost a fortune. This ticked most of the boxes, under £100, with the 28mm wide angle zoom, large screen, anti-shake and even a manual exposure setting (of sorts). Works great as a point and shoot, but if you want to get creative there's plenty of scope. Things like white balance, picture size and exposure comp. are all there with the one button (Fn). 13MP is probably over the top for a camera like this (my DSLR "only" has 12!) and the picture quality does suffer because of it, but hey, I'm still impressed. At low ISO it's very good and even higher up I've seen a lot worse. As someone already pointed out, It's one thing looking 100% on a monitor, but run a few off on any modern A4 printer and you'll be very pleased with the results. Thing is, I look at the DSLR now, with the bag and all the other stuff that goes with it and I'm tempted just to grab the wee Samsung! I know I'll still come back with some decent photos.
