“Thy Picture in my Sight”

ProLarge Screen

ConsA bit Ugly

Enjoying a relaxing lunch, sitting outside in the warm October sun with my little 3-month old daughter, I'm about to show a friend some snaps of the baby. I reach for my handbag for my digital camera and suddenly go cold. My bag's not there. Frantically, I cast my eyes about, looking in unlikely...

I was intending to buy a camera but haven't searched for a particular one to buy. Despite this, when I've been to Manchester last year I have found this Samsung S600 offered at the price of 67pounds. I decided on the moment to buy it and don't regret it. The first thing you have to do is buy a...

Product Information : Samsung Digimax S600

Manufacturer's product description

The Digimax S600 is a high-resolution digital camera that provides true-color images. You can use the Digimax S600 to produce even better images and take detailed photos for printing up to poster size. In addition, the Digimax S600 has a 3X optical and 5X digital zoom giving 15X total zoom when combined. The Digimax S600 has a large 2.4" LCD for improved contrast and color reproduction, allowing you to enjoy a wider and clearer image. When it is set to Auto Mode, the Digimax S600 automatically adjusts the shooting distance and focus from between 5cm to infinity, helping the picture taker to get better pictures more easily. The user does not need to activate the macro function separately in order to take pictures as close as 5cm. The Digimax S600 has some intriguing special effect functions - including Highlight, Photo Frame, and Composite Shot - that give you unique, and sometimes amusing, shooting experiences beyond conventional picture-taking. You can access each of these special effects with just one touch of the "E" button. The user-friendly ergonomic body design delivers comfort and a steady hold for better shots. This means you can expect even better focus no matter where your subject is in the frame. Digimax S600 has various scene modes to obtain the best picture result in a variety of settings. The scene modes provided are Night scene, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Sunset, Dawn, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach and Snow. The family-friendly mode dials - with Night, Portrait and Children modes - make it easier to get great shots of the family by giving in stand access to the appropriate mode for each individual situation. Children mode, with its open aperture and fast shutter speeds, lets you 'freeze' children in fast moving action shots. Night mode automatically uses the slow synchronization function to help you get clearer and brighter pictures at night. When using Portrait mode, you get more pleasing people pictures with improved redeye reduction. The Digimax S600's print button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the S600 to any PictBridge compatible photo printer, press the illuminated print button and print! Also use the button to transfer images directly to a computer.
