On normal alkine bateries the camera is basically rubbish but with rechargeable Nihm bateries rates 2700 mah its wonderful. The autofocus is good and focuses quite quickly but there is a long time to wait between taking shots, this is a bit disappionting, lots of people have said they have had niose problems but i have not expeinced these at an ISO of under 400, The shutter speed of 1/2000 that this camera offers if very good and the large LCD screen is wonderful and you can really see the… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/12/2008

Are using the wrong batteries. These cameras chew alkaline batteries as it is not what they were designed for. Buy Lithium Ion batteries and you should easily see 10 hours of constant use out of each pair. If you do then I well recommend the Samsung Digimax S1050 camera… Read Full Review

Please take note that batteries for digital cameras should be of a higher load as they do take a bit of power and you should be looking at duracell ultra m3's or rechargeable batteries specifically for digital cameras. Then the performance is what you should expect and want… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/06/2008

I am very disappointed with the Samsung Digimax S1050, basic functions/facilities of anti blurr and battery life let this camera down. The other functions are pointless if it doesn't take a sharp picture or if the camera switches off part way through your event!

I am going to get my money back… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2008 by Guest 4589 (2 reviews written)

Samsung S1050 Review - Picture quality is excellent. Easy to use. Large monitor which is very handy when you want to take a good look at the photo after you have taken it. Battery life is terrible. However, if you purchase rechargeable batteries then you should be ok, as you do not have to keep buying new ones saving you some money. Have to make sure camera is still when taking pictures as the slightest movement can make the picture blurry even with the anti blurr function on. So may not be… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/05/2008

The Samsung Digimax S1050 looks great and is very easy to use. The battery life annoys me as this is not something I was expecting but this is the first digital camera I have owned so this might be normal. I can't complain too much as it was reduced from £199.99 to £89.99 (Good old Argos where would I be without you). So yes, very good camera… Read Full Review

I bought this camera recently and having found the instructions in the box to be pretty rubbish i checked out the samsung website and found where to download the full user guide for this camera.

I bought this camera for general picture taking with my family not for professional use and i have found it to be great once i learnt all the functions!! Also if you are thinking of buying it, Argos is currently selling in pink and silver for £89.99 - this is where i bought from as i havent found it… Read Full Review

The battery life was 2 hours. This is not good. I bought a S1050. I was trying out all the functions and was kinda surprised that the brand new Duracell batteries ran out after 2 hours. If this is the case, gee. I am going to try another set of batteries, but the batteries I used were wrapped brand new. I was only taking practice shots. Not more than 20… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/03/2008

I recently bought the above camera, read the guide and took a couple of shots and a video when the batteries ran out as well! What's that all about?
<br/>This is my first digital camera and wondered if this is the norm for these things or if it's a fault with the camera.
<br/>The batteries were brand new and came with the camera.
