Samsung Digimax L77 Reviews

CEN reviews the Samsung Digimax L77 and writes;
“I do have to point out that the camera is a bit sluggish, and isn’t the best for shooting people in group shots because there is an annoying lag from when you press the button to when the camera fires the shot. This is especially acute in low light situations with the flash. ”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

CNET reviews the Samsung Digimax L77 and writes;
“The good: Slim and light; 7x optical zoom lens doesn’t extend from the camera. The bad: Sluggish performance; heavy fringing in pictures; no manual exposure controls. The bottom line: Though it doesn’t have manual exposure controls, the Samsung L77 puts some good shooting in a small package. ”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

T3.UK reviews the Samsung Digimax L77 and writes;
“Photos, to be fair, are not outstanding, with highlights burning out in bright conditions, while the anti-shake is slow, and no match for an optical system. Having got that off our chests, we have to accept that the L77 still offers much more than the average compact and looks unfeasibly stylish to boot. If you like snapping things far away, its zoom will, quite literally, “shake your room”. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ePhotozine reviews the Samsung Digimax L77 and writes;
“The slimness and large zoom are a great benefit, and if it wasn’t for the picture quality the camera would get a high score, but essentially fails on its primary function. The L77 is attractive, easy to use, the menus are split down into three parts, but in this case it doesn’t seem to detract. If you need a slim camera for happy snapping that looks good, has a good zoom with odd bits of metal sticking out of the side then this camera is for you, but otherwise it won’t be. ”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Samsung Digimax L77 and writes;
“Image quality was ok. While most of our samples are sharp, and show good exposure and color balance, I did see above average amounts of barrel distortion and chromatic aberrations…Bottom line – Samsung has created a nice compact digital model with some appealing features like its 7x internal optical zoom lens…with a street of $259 I feel it offers an Ok value for a compact 7-megapixel model in this category.”

DigitalCameraReview reviews the Samsung Digimax L77 and writes;
“The camera does have decent performance (it operates quickly) and it looks really nice. The 7x optical zoom does work well, and it does work during movie capture, which is a nice to have…I do strongly recommend that you take a look at the sample images and decide for yourself. The most direct competitor to the Samsung L77 is the Casio Exilim EX-V7. A slightly larger, but still in the compact category, camera is the 10x optical zoom Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3.”
