Summary

Our Score:

7

Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These pictures were taken indoors using reflected natural light.

----

This is the full frame at minimum ISO.

----

Even at 80 ISO there is some noise visible in the green areas.

----

Not much difference at 100 ISO.

----

Noise is slightly more pronounced at 200 ISO.

----

At 400 ISO the noise reduction cuts in and reduces image quality further.

----

Detail is really fading at 800 ISO.

----

Things are getting very noisy at 1600 ISO.

----

3200 ISO is pretty much unusable.

----

This is the full frame at 3200 ISO.

I bought this camera in September but have some issues with it.


The most disturbing issue is that the lens fogs up (from the inside) when you are in colder climes (4 degrees centigrade or below), making it impossible to take photos in some cases. I'm assuming this is because it it airtight so any moisture within is trapped and condenses on the cold lens. I'm also no fan of Samsung's propriety connector which you need to charge the camera, but as the battery (and sd card) are removable - that is more of a minor annoyance.


On the plus side, it's child friendly (my 8 year has mastered it) and I can confirm that it is waterproof. I'm also very happy with the picture quality on outdoor shots.





So - a real mixed bag. If it wasn't for the foggy lens I'd be very happy, but as it is I need to buy yet another camera just for winter.....Very frustrating.

I bought this camera and I'm regreted because it leaks. I was using it at the beach, went for a swim, and made a small film. After that, I turned it off and since then it never went on again...
