Entry level cameras are perhaps the most sought after handheld gadgets, second only to mobile phones; this is perhaps the reason why even Samsung has joined the camera bandwagon and has come up with entry level cameras to fit everyone's pocket. The Samsung ES17 belongs to the same bandwagon and comes with a resolution of 12.2 mp and a zoom range of 3x comes with all the basic features that make up a good entry level camera.

It comes with an easy, fluid design and in two conservative colours - Metallic Silver and Midnight Black.
