Samsung SH100 review – Verdict

The SH100 hold s a lot of promise just from browsing down its spec sheet. The Wi-Fi connectivity is a great thing to have at this price point and shows Samsung’s commitment to future technologies that few other manufacturers have in their camera ranges.

The biggest issue with the SH100 is that the touchscreen isn’t very responsive to the lighter touch, and this can hinder the shooting process. As there are few shooting buttons there’s no choice but to utilise the touchscreen technology.

The SH100’s images are acceptable and ideal for day-to-day snaps, but shouldn’t be thought of for more critical or fine detail use.

It’s when weighing up the low price point and all the technology that’s crammed into this small, stylish-looking compact that it’s hard to fault. For little over the £100 mark the SH100 has a lot more on offer than its competitors, if only its touch sensitivity was a little more practical.
