I guess you’re curious about our new baby, the Samsung Digi-Max Pro815 camera. This is one of my very first photos with it, without any special settings.

There is some flaws with it, as it always is, but I’m satisfied with it because I knew about them before I decided to buy it. I was comparing the benefits with the drawbacks and established that it (for me) was more benefits than drawbacks. We’ll see if I change my mind after using the camera for a while!

The main reasons why I did choose this camera was:

- The world’s longest built in zoom: 15 x optical
- The largest display on a digital camera, 3.5 inches
- The extra (smaller) display on the top
- The 450-shot Lithium-Ion battery
- 8 megapixels

With a focal length of 28-420mm I can shoot from wide angle to telephoto with one lens. I’m lazy and don’t feel like changing lenses (or battery) all the time… And think about all the fuss I could make loosing the lenses! *smiling*

The extra (smaller) display on the top was a big reason because with that I can shoot from my hip like a real cowboy ;-) without bending down in certain situations. I have problems with my back, so this is an important feature for me.

Now I need a solution to be able to attach the camera to my belt…

    oh… and i must admit i’d a tad jealour. I had a canon SLR but someone else decided they needed it more than me – so they five-finger doscounted it and now it’s gone :( so for now i’m using a canon point and shoot… *cry*

    Wowwww… I imagine it must have cost a lot, given it’s specs! How much did you pay for it?

    Frankly, I didn’t know Samsung made digital cameras, because I’d never heard of them. The brand I hear most often about is Canon. Everyone says Canon digital cameras are good, but I wouldn’t know because I have never had a digital camera! Haha! But I will try to get one soon.

    That is a very beautiful picture you took, btw. :) I think you turn it into a birthday card or some other card. Looking forward to seeing more photos!

    Thanx pm! Sorry you’ve lost yours. There’s a big step between the point and shoot and the SLR’s, so I can imagine the feeling!

    Thank you sharlet. I did pay about $820 for the camera. Canon’s still is a good choice – if you’re up to changing linses and can manage without the extra display on the top.
    You just have to decide what’s best for you.
    The smaller point and shoot cameras is very good to begin with if you never had one, to see what you think about it. The small one is still good to have for the occasions when it’s difficult to carry around the big one.
