Samsung SH100 Review


The Samsung SH100 measures 3.7 x 2.1 x 0.7-inches (whd), which makes it extremely compact and can easily fit into a pants or shirt pocket. The plastic body does make it feel a little “cheap” in design, but it does feel fairly sturdy and solid. It comes in three colors choices: black, red and silver.

On the backside, you’ll find a 3-inch touchscreen display with a 230k pixel resolution. The screen’s quality is very good and has a good brightness level, but we found the screen to be rather unresponsive. The touchscreen is resistive, so you do have to give the screen a good solid press for its to be recognized. This can make entering information, especially wireless login information, with the on-screen keyboard somewhat difficult. The interface on the Samsung SH100 is pretty straightforward to use and the options are clearly labeled.

Because this camera has a touchscreen, there’s a lack of physical buttons. There are just four buttons, which include a power button on the top, a shutter & zoom control, a playback control and a home button on the back to take you back to the camera’s main menu.

Some of the specifications of the Samsung SH100 include a 14.2-megapixel CCD image sensor, a 5x optical zoom (5x digital zoom) with a focal length of 4.7mm-23.5mm or a 35mm equivalent of 26mm to 130mm. The aperture settings range from f3.3 to f9.4 in wide-angle mode and f5.9 to f16.7 telephoto. There’s also electronic image stabilization, but it doesn’t seem to work too well. The camera uses a MicroSD memory card instead of the traditional SD card, which is a little strange.
