Samsung L830 Reviews
TrustedReviews reviews the Samsung L830 and writes;
“The Samsung L830 is in many ways the epitome of the average digital camera. It is fairly cheap, light and compact, well made and inoffensively designed. It has some problems with handling, but performs well under most circumstances, and does offer one or two unusual features for the price.”
CNET reviews the Samsung L830 and writes;
” The bottom line: The Samsung L830 is a compact 8-megapixel camera that offers plenty of manual controls, but its sluggish shooting and disappointing picture quality hold it back.”
Steve’sDigicams reviews the Samsung L830 and writes;
“When shooting in portrait mode, the camera did a very good job of adjusting the settings for the present shooting conditions, however, at some times it will sacrifice the quality of the image if necessary.. With a price of around US$179 or less, this is a good deal for the quality and performance you will get.”
