    Hi,
    I've got a Boots voucher lasting just 1 week which lets me get the Samsung Digimax 3100 for £90 (from 179.99). - I can't see much about it on the web.
    Has anyone got any opinions of this camera?
    is it worthwhile?
    is £90 a bargain?
    etc......

    I'm a complete novice, we have the Kodak T700 APS camera which we think is great, but this is an opportunity to join the digital revolution.

    Voucher runs out on 31st Oct 2004, so advice urgently required.

    Cheers

    It's quite a new camera, no reviews that I can find, and not much information even on Samsungs website so I can;t comment too much on picture quality etc. However, Samsungs cameras are generaly pretty good, if not class leading.

    It has a pretty decent specification for a compact digital camera, 3.2megapixel, 3x optical zoom. Seems to have a good macro capability (5cm). Samsung website does not mention what kind of memory it uses, just says "Multi card memory slot", so perhaps it takes more than one type?

    For £179.99 it's overpriced, but at £90 I'd say it's not a bad deal.

    I think it is a good camera but I'm not an expert. The problem is that I think it wastes too much batteries, I don't know which ones are more powerful or if there is a Lithium battery for this camera because it would be interesting. Do you know which are the batteries that could fit better in the Samsung Digimax 3100 (or 370?)
    Thank you

    I would buy it for £90 and give it to your wife/partner for christmas and say it cost you £180 which you can use it as well, the best of both worlds :laugh:

    Hello, I was wandering about the digimax 370 and I'd like to ask you if it's possible to use this cam as a web cam. Cheers.

    Well those vouchers would save you £90 elsewhere mate in xmas presents. So really i'd use the money for perfume and stuff like that, and get a better camera for around


    Many better cameras out there round that price.

    Sorry but I think this is a good camera for £90 and I still haven't found a camera with the same characteristics for a similar price. It has many options and the macro is great. The only problem are the batteries but is not difficult to have two charged sets. :smashin:
