Samsung Cameras Have Good Reviews

Based on 7,330 user and expert reviews (including 1,081 verified purchases), Samsung has good reviews for its cameras. Samsung also has good reviews specifically within its medium megapixel digital cameras range compared to other brands. 92% of those that bought a Samsung digital camera would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.

Expert Reviews Are Poor

The average expert rating of this Samsung digital camera is 55 out of 100 based on four expert reviews from sites including CNET.com, PC Mag, IT Reviews.com and mobilewhack.com. The expert review sites don't rate this digital camera very highly.


Design

Nice Design

One owner mentioned that it was good looking. Expert review site Mobilewhack.com wrote in their review of the Samsung 100 “Manage to do a pretty fair job in the aggregate sense” but even so they only gave this digital camera a score of 60 out of 100.

Poor Product Quality

One customer who bought it considered that it was not good quality. Pcmag.com said on expert website PC Mag six years ago “From its bargain-bin look to its mediocre call quality” in their review of this digital camera.


Lens System

Quite Big Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of medium megapixel digital cameras that have been available for more than two years range from 0.34x to 65x, and the average optical zoom is 14x. With an optical zoom of 26 times zoom factor, the Samsung 100 has one of the bigger optical zooms amongst medium megapixel digital cameras of this age.

We compared all the other 26x optical zoom cameras to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Pentax X-5, the Fujifilm SL260, and the Nikon L810 is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger optical zoom then you might also want to consider the FinePix SL 300 (30x), the FinePix S4800 ($200) (30x), or the Finepix SL300 ($305) (30x) all from Fujifilm which is also higher rated.
