DigIT reviews the Samsung GX-1L digital SLR

DIWA Awards member DigIT has just published their review of the Samsung GX-1L digital SLR digital camera. [Editor's note: review is in norwegian.] The Samsung GX-1L digital SLR features 6.1MP resolution and is based on the Pentax *ist DL. Here is Kai Thon's summary of his review [translated into English]:

With a name like Samsung, known to the photographic world as a manufacturer of low-end compacts, it can't be easy to fight against mighty, established names like Canon, Nikon, Pentax og Olympus on the D-SLR arena.

Nevertheless, Samsung is one of the fastest growing companies in the industry and I woun't be surprised if they one day is a leading D-SLR brand.

Samsung GX-1L digital SLRThe GX-1L is the first baby from their marriage with Pentax. Basically, the GX-1L is a slightly modified version of the Pentax *ist DL and comes in a kit with two amazing zoom lenses; 18-55 mm and 50-200 mm. Branded Schneider-Kreuznach D-Xenon, but obviously identical to the Pentax versions, they both deliver outstanding optical performance at very competitive prices.

The GX-1L has no major weaknesses, but lacks some of the most refined features found in more advanced D-SLRs. In most respects, the GX-1L matches its main competitors, even outperforms them in terms of a larger and brighter viewfinder, larger and more detailed LCD screen, USB 2.0 High Speed interface, AA battery compatibility, yet light weight and small dimensions.

Although lens performance is outstanding, the image processing performance deteriorates the capabilities of the 6.1 MP CCD sensor when images are stored as JPEGs. If you stick to the RAW format, the GX-1L will provide first class images for its class and price range.

My summary is that the Samsung GX-1L in kit with the two standard zoom lenses is a price bargain it is unwise to overlook.
