Samsung GX 1L

Many of the entry level DSLRs are aimed not only at the serious enthusiast, not also at women and old people who may otherwise be put off by the very size of a professional level DSLR. They may also assume that the controls of a DSLR are rather difficult and not meant for the first time user, not to mention the tag of ‘technologically challenged’ that is attached to women and people of the generation earlier to ours. Since most camera manufacturers are leaving no stones unturned when it comes to consumer base, they wouldn’t want to miss out on such a huge section of the populace for such flimsy reasons as weight! Thus even established companies like Samsung came up with the Samsung GX 1L, which is a 6.1mp entry level DSLR ideal for the first time user.

Design and Functioning

Weighing a mere 470gs, this camera could easily be taken lightly (puns intended) if it were not for its sturdy make, even though it consists of plastic. In fact, lack of too much weight is one of the key factors that the Samsung GX 1L tries to score on over other cameras. True to its tag of an entry level camera, the Samsung GX-1L includes a host of automatic operations including an innovative Auto Picture mode that automatically selects the appropriate picture mode from Standard, Landscape, Macro or Action depending on the subject. When in Auto Sensitivity mode the GX-1L automatically selects the camera’s sensitivity including brightness and focal length to help reduce camera shake and ensure a steady, clear image. And, for easy selection, all major functions can be accessed from the large, easy-to-read mode dial. For those who like to play with the settings, this camera comes with four digital filters (black-and-white, sepia, slim, and soft-focus) for easy post-shooting image processing. To reduce the effect of low light or long exposures, the camera features noise reduction function activates. This lightweight wonder is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
