Saw this earlier but cant find any reviews or smaple photos anywhere?
The only one review is the one by samsung which is plastered all over the web
Anybody got any real reviews?

£83.99 at Amazon, so good price.

If i didnt already have two relatively new cameras (thanks to this site), i would have snapped this up.

Heat added!

one review … one review herehttp://www.metacafe.com/watch/3622313/samsung_es60_digital_camera/




Sorry, that's not a review. He's quoting straight from the Samsung blurb surely?

Worth noting most samsung products come with a 2 year samsung warranty,see the enclosed warranty card

Yeah thats the standard samsung review its plastered all over the net!
Could do with a real review

The ES55 got very good reviews. Was gonna pick up that camera today but might go have a look at this instead from Argos.

Great Product, Great Price

Good price for a 12mp, all-metal body with Li-on battery. Don't think there is much out there with comparable specs at the same price (by a decent manufacturer anyway!)

Banned

Not many pics of the back of the camera advertised on sites, having found one I now see why.... looks very basic...

Not for me but better than buying a vivitar or something

It's also pretty chunky, older model but the same dimensions

great camera at a good price, just ordered one! 4 left in huddersfield if you want one:)

That's a picture of the ES20 which has 4x optical zoom, hence it being quite chunky (and it also uses AA. Thickness is 27.2mm samsung.com/uk/…c=F


ES60 has only 3x Optical, so it is quite a bit thinner at 21.6mm samsung.com/uk/…c=F

Alternatively, save £5 and buy a ]Samsung ES55 Camera - Silver
(10MP, 3x Optical Zoom) + a FREE Lowepro Case for £64.69 @ Amazon.
It too has lots of cool features like face detection with a metal body and rechargeable Li-on Battery.
Plus 2 years warranty as bonus. http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/531792/samsung-es60-12mp-camera-at-argos-f/../529242/images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif

Does anyone know if this camera can take widescreen photo`s as I take quie a few landscape shots that would benefit from this.

I have found this on Samsungs site

I presume the ones in red are widescreen, can anyone confirm this

sorry mate I cant find it anywhere. but the resolution suggets that it can take widescreen

IMO if you can stretch to this one :- argos.co.uk/sta…htm

far better reviews / quality etc, wouldn't touch sammy cameras

looks good reserved 1 thanks

I have a samsung camera, s1065, and the time it takes to store a picture and allow you for another one is way too much, around 4 to 5 seconds. Quality is good, but you miss some shots due to this.
Still a good price, so as a deal is ok.
Hope this help anyone

I'm not the biggest fan of Samsung, but got a Tocco Lite yesterday and absolutely love it. Wondering if I should take the plunge with this as well. Some user reviews would really help - nyeh!

Good value deal but bear in mind that with digital cameras you generally get what you pay for so don't expect amazing performance and features at this price range. Having said that some people are not really after the latest features so if you are happy with a middle of the range digicam this Samsung looks ok. Personally I would recommend the Panasonic digicam compact range, I have one and it's superb!

A few questions about the camera.

Does anybody know what format does it record videos? if it does? and at what resolution?

Also has it got rechargable batteries?

I guess it's just cropping the 4:3 image. Obviously it does it for you though rather than you having to crop it on the computer. Although I suspect it's not super easy or quick to change modes on the camera. I'd be certain you're not getting a wider angle. I would rather have the full image and be able to crop it myself later if necessary rather than losing it permanently for no real gain.

Yes this looks ok.

Play have also got the below one on 'offer', any one know which ones best?? 5x OPtical zoom cant be bad??

Samsung PL57 12.2 Megapixel / 5x Optical Zoom / 2.7" LCD / Digital Camera / Black £99.99

Thanks dudes.

If it helps, here's the WHICH? review of the slightly cheaper cousin the ES55.

Mottmania

The Samsung ES55 is no Best Buy – it’s let down by a slow shot to shot speed and a scarcity of features – but this very affordable 10Mp camera takes some pleasing pictures.

The ES55 is ready to start shooting just 1.88 seconds after switching on, and the shutter delay is also very fast, meaning the camera can autofocus and take a shot quickly after pressing the shutter button.

However, the delay between the camera taking one shot and it being ready to take another is an extremely long 5.59 seconds. This can make the ES55 frustrating to use if you are taking a series of pictures. The burst mode lets the ES55 automatically take one picture every 1.35 seconds, but even this isn’t particularly fast for a modern digital camera.

It’s a shame the camera is let down this way, because in many respects the ES55 is a great point and shoot model for under £100. It’s not spoiled for features – you won’t find advanced manual controls such as aperture or shutter speed priority modes – but for casual photographers this shouldn’t be an issue.

The camera does feature face detection technology to help focus on individuals within your shots, and it also offers 12 scene modes. These set the camera to the ideal picture settings for certain photography conditions.

The quality of the ES55’s pictures is generally very good – colour reproduction is excellent both in bright daylight and in artificial lighting. In low light conditions the ES55 works fairly well – there is a degree of grainy image noise evident in low light photos, but this is to be expected with a compact camera.

The ES55’s movie mode is less impressive, however. When you play back your video clips on a computer or TV screen, the poor detail and contrasting becomes much more evident, and the ES55 certainly can’t match the quality you could expect with a dedicated digital camcorder.

The ES55 only has a x3 optical zoom, so this doesn’t make it a particularly good camera for getting close up to distant subjects. The camera has image stabilisation, but our tests revealed it does a poor job of limiting the effects of shaky hands.

Pros: cheap, slim, good picture quality

Cons: slow delay between shots, poor movie mode, somewhat limited features

Excellent reveiw thanks Motty.

As a comparison is the Samsung PL57 any good??

Wasn't one like this on offer at PC world?

Just got one of these. Seems a decent camera for the money, certainly caters for our needs.

hot - samsung cameras are always good value for money imo. I had one last me 3 years until i sold it.

Temp at 348 and no rep :w00t:

I like the Samsung cameras, I had one that lasted for years until I upgraded. I'm torn between this and the PL50 from PC World for £10 more.

pl50:

The pl50 is slightly smaller but has a larger screen and a much better looking case. It has lower megapixels but the same size sensor - which may have some advantages and disadvantages.

Anyone with a 12 megapixel camera who can offer an opinion on how useful it is? Any other advice?
