Samsung Pro815 8.0 MP Digital Camera - Black

The Pro 815 enables you to handle any shooting condition and situation, and demonstrates all the technologies of Samsung Techwin, the leading camera manufacturer in Korea. The release of the Pro 815 provides evidence that Korean digital camera designs are equivalent to or better than Japan's in terms of technology. The Pro 815 employs the world's best 15x optical zoom, the world's largest 3.5 inch LCD, the world's first top LCD, and a Li-Ion battery with the world's largest capacity.The 15x optical zoom of the Pro 815 realizes the all-in-one concept of a digital camera. From the analog era to the digital era, it can be said that the performance of a camera depends on the expression of an image via its lens. In the transition from SLR in the analog era to DSLR in the digital era, camera user trends are also changing, and advanced digital cameras are being developed from normal digital cameras. During this process, users buy an interchangeable lens whose angle of view is different due to the limitations of expressing images via a lens. That is very inconvenient when you take pictures. The 15x optical zoom function of the Pro 815 is equivalent to the 28mm ~ 420mm in 35mm format, and includes the 28~85mm (wide angle zoom lens) and the 80~400mm (telephoto zoom lens) that DSLR users usually enjoy. In addition, the application of the world-beating Schneider lens enables you to achieve clear and natural-looking images with high resolution. Thus, with the Pro 815, you can overcome the limitations of expressing images via a lens.The Pro 815 provides various display modes via the 3.5-inch LCD. Existing digital cameras enable you to combine 9 different shots in the LCD when playing images, but the Pro 815 enables you to combine 25 different shots. In addition, you can search desired images more quickly via a jog dial. The Pro 815 supports a Histogram function that allows you to check and control exposure compensation conveniently. A grid display that facilitates changing shooting angles is available. In particular, you can get the optimized shooting angle and mode by checking image information just prior to shooting, displaying an image in the center with icons and image information around the margins.

The Camera overall is great. I used to have a casio exilim z-57 model. It had 5.0mp and I thought that was good quality.
