With a nice build and an attractive price, the Samsung L700 looks like a pretty good deal at under $200.
The Samsung L700 is a 7.2 megapixel, 3x zoom pocket digital camera with a 2.5-inch LCD. As most small pocket digital cameras do these days, the Samsung L700 includes a high ISO setting of 1,600 to reduce the effects of camera shake indoors.
Where the Samsung L700 shines is in its movie mode, which captures 640 x 480 movies at 30 frames per second, and benefits from a Movie Stabilizer mode. You can even pause movies while recording, creating one file with a cut in the middle. In-camera movie editing and 11 Scene modes round out the Samsung L700 package. We found the lens to be surprisingly sharp with very little distortion, but it also suffered from chromatic aberration and flare.
Though it's nice that the Samsung L700 has ISO 1,600 for indoor shooting, we found the autofocus system to be unreliable in such lighting, so it's not even worth mentioning that the ISO 1,600 images were quite soft. Click here to read more about the Samsung L700 digital camera.
