Samsung Digimax S800 Digital Camera Review

Samsung digimax s800Samsung Digimax S800 comes in an ergonomic body design (black and silver) for steady shooting. The Samsung Digimax S800 is the point-and-shoot camera that has tons of controls for its price range, but confusing menus and poor image quality (slightly soft, excessive noise and too warm colors with auto white balance indoor shooting) outweigh these advantages.
Also, it kinda shocked me that it has no aperture- or shutter-priority mode and the exposure adjustments in 1/2-stop instead of 1/3-stop increments. Red-eye is also a problem.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
