Written on: 09/08/2010

I picked mine up in a charity shop and had an enjoyable hour working out the settings. Yes the screen view is not great but the pictures are very good on my PC , just watch the close-up/ distance lens setting and watch out for the flash on setting. Battery life did seem a bit short but with rechargeables it seemed OK. A handy little camera that has a fair share of features for a compact. I know it's a gimmick but I quite like the sound recorder! the first time I have come across this feature… Read Full Review

Excellent starter cam for the price. I have no probs with battery life, blurred pics or the cam just stopping. I#'m a pro photographer and this is the cam I choose to have in an inside pocket for those unexpected occasions. If you're having probs with the cam stopping after 30 secs might I suggest you change the settings. Thats what they are there for… Read Full Review

The Samsung Digimax A402 is a good camera if you are not good with technology or if it is for a young person who doesn't want a very high tec camera that does a lot because it doesn't. It's simple to use, no fancy settings to confuse you although limited to what you can do with it. Small display screen and bad focus on the zoom… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/01/2008

Received this camera for Christmas about a year ago, and it met my needs for the short period of time it was in working condition.

The flash suddenly stopped working while I was out using it for work one day, and taking any pictures indoors is just a waste of time, as they don't turn out - obviously. Taking any pictures, even out-of-doors, without the flash results in a very blurry picture!

The worst part has been trying to find a number to call for customer support, as according to their… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2007 by 066007 (1 review written)

In general, love the camera, I use it mostly for Family History hobby, taking photos of photos in other people albums. The ability to make a short records with each photo, has removed the problem of having to write down who is in each photo, ideal. I find the slow shutter speed, when I don't have the flash on, is a pain, any slight movement when taking a photo will cause it to blur, if I can change or speed up the shutter speed, I have yet to find out how. But over all it is easy to use and… Read Full Review

Deepak....you can get four AA NiMH batteries AND a charger for under £6 at Lidl or Aldi.

<br/>ALL digicams eat alkaline batteries -- even the high-grade ones like Duracell.

Written on: 12/07/2006 by dannoman (2 reviews written)

This Samsung Digimax A402 digital camera packed up after 13 months. Beyond economical repair. It is unbelivably thirsty on batteries... one day trip will drain 4 of them!
Used a 250mb zennox sd card which gave good storage. I would not reccommend this model. I have now purchased a new Canon A430 as recommended by most experts. This camera was cheap... and now I know why… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/08/2007

I agree. This camera is the pits. I have gone through a pair of batteries in ten minutes. Until I read some of these reviews I thought I had a defective unit. When the batteries are in and the camera is not on, it gets so hot I worry about it catching fire. Are they all like that?

Written on: 28/12/2005 by yerilyn (1 review written)

The Samsung Digimax A402 digital camera is awesome! It's my second digital camera. I wanted a digital camera for Christmas, and I was begging my mom. I did my research because I don't want anything that is no good, but not so expensive. I looked over the Samsung camera, and it seemed great. It looked huge on internet, but when I went to Walmart it was really small and compact. I liked it, and so did my mom. It was only $118 ($125 with tax). I used it as soon as I got it, and it took really… Read Full Review

You mentioned sirnttag of with a good lens. I am a bit of a aircraft enthusiast and do a lot of my shooting at airshows Airports. The two lenses i have are a 18-200 IS 100-400 IS USM. Would you recommend these? Only reason i ask is that i have put a deposit on a 7D as an upgrade for my 400D. Would you class the 7D as a good Choice

Written on: 30/11/2005 by hellopeople18 (1 review written)

I got the Samsung Digimax A402 digital camera yesterday, and I have already used two sets of batteries. I recommend this camera to anyone who wants a small lightweight camera. It was well worth my money. It comes with a USB cord, installation disk, user guide and a wrist string.

This camera is very good, although it has a few down points. The picture quality is very good. Even on x4.0, while taking the picture, it is very blurry, but once you view, it is quite clear. I give it 2 thumbs up!!!… Read Full Review

It would be a very diffucult task to find a better digital camera within this price range. The Samsung Digimax A402 digital camera is small, sleek, and it takes great pictures. Add a 1GB SD memory card and you are set for many many years to come. Thank you Samsung!… Read Full Review
