Samsung SH100 review


Samsung SH100 review - Design

The SH100 is small in form, and the touchscreen means there are few buttons to contend with. A ‘home' button on the rear brings up the main options, while a zoom rocker on the top of the camera controls the zoom function.

Hands-on is the only way to work through the SH100's settings, though the slow-to-respond touchscreen can make this a bit of a pain. The virtual buttons require a very firm press that takes some getting use to, while the Smartphone-like ‘sliding' motion to move between pages can occasionally opt to select a menu option rather than moving from one screen to the next. Some buttons are also positioned too close to the screen edge and, as this is sunken into the camera, can make for trickier pressing.

When switched off the SH100's lens retreats back into the camera body for a small and lean design. Despite the relatively low price point the camera also feels sturdy and well made, the black with silver-coloured trim in this particular test certainly looks the part.
