Dearest Groupon ppl,
If you are link here because of Groupon’s review, please note that I was not aware that they link my page to their review. Please understand that the review given below is my OWN personal opinion and I got it from a regular shop… Thanks !
My ol ye faithful Sony cybershot camera went crazy after 2 years but it was still useable. So, I didn’t bother to replace it. However, on my recent trip toMelbourne, it went missing and hub and I couldn’t figure out where we left it.
So, for the last few months, I have been snapping pictures with my mobile. It was really frustrating as pictures are not consistent and it is really hard to capture anything without flash at night.
I finally drag myself to a camera shop last Friday to try and replace myself with another camera. My requirements – it must be less than RM 1,000 and must be easy to use. The lady instantly showed me the Samsung PL151 camera. I was a little sceptical since Samsung is not a brand synonym to high quality camera. But with a price of RM 899 (comes with a 4G card, one spare battery and protective screen sticker for the LCD at the back) – how can I refuse this bargain, right? Not to mention, I was quite suckers in when she show me the front LCD.
Since I need to travel a lot (by myself), I am used to taking pictures of myself with the scenery. This gets a little tricky. It’s not easy to get the correct tilt, angle and wondering if you capture everything until after you click away. With this baby, I can adjust it until everything looks good before I click.
So, I bought it. Yay !!! These pictures here are taken with my mobile. See how blur it is. sigh… I’m looking forward to getting nice pictures so that I could also post them on my blog. ;p
hi, how about the photo quality? sharp or blur?
The photo quality is not bad, but, then, it depends what are you planning to use it for. If you are only planning to take picture for personal use. (Maybe to keep in computer), I think it’s ok. I’m not sure about if the quality if good enough for printing as I have never print any picture I took to date. hehee…
Personally, I think the best if you head over to a shop and test it out yourself. If you like it, you can head back and get the groupon offer (I assume you are looking at the offer). 🙂
But, to tell you the truth, after I got my Samsung Note (handphone), I’ve been using it more to take picture than to carry a separate camera. ;p
