Another camera that has been on a diet – it’s less than 17mm deep. Despite its compact size, this camera has had a lot packed into it, including a 14Mp CCD, 5x zoom (27-135mm), optical and digital image stabilisation systems, digital effects, and 1280 x 720 HD recording. Samsung has chosen to use Micro SD cards for storage, which is a pain if you have lots of SD cards lying around. The camera’s internal memory stores half a dozen shots at the highest resolution. Handling isn’t bad, but you do have to do a fair bit of scrolling when using the menu system. Picture quality though, was impressive, with sharp, clean images and good colour reproduction.
