Samsung ES28 - Blue
Member Name: cfinney
Advantages: Compact, lightweight and stylish. Great functions.
Disadvantages: Low internal memory.
I brought this camera a few months ago from the Tesco Outlet Ebay store. The main reason I was drawn to it was its price, just £35 with a 1 year Tesco warranty which is well below the average price of every other camera of this standard I had found.
The other thing that drew me to it was its colour. A beautiful, shiny pale blue colour which I had never come across on a camera before, it really stuck out and I feel is a beautiful finishing touch the cosmetics on this camera.
In terms of performance, well if you're looking to take any fancy looking photographs at a professional quality then this probably isn't for you. If you're just looking for something small and lightweight which is easy to use and great at capturing those moments you want to keep forever then this is definitely the camera for you.
The 14mp ensure that every detail is picked up, everything is in focus and the flash ensures this is the case even in bad lighting. The 5x optical zoom is more than adequate for my use of this camera however isn't going to be any good for someone who is going to require a decent zoom.
I also found that the batteries last a long time in this camera, much longer than any other camera I have used which have always chewed up a couple of AA's in a matter of hours.
My only problem with this camera is the extremely low internal memory. I had taken around 5 pictures before it was full. On the plus it takes a standard SD memory card which are very easy to come across and reasonably priced so this problem is easily sorted.
Summary: Great little camera for capturing every day moments.
