Samsung galaxy fit review

The Samsung Galaxy Fit camera is a bit of a mixed bag. It lacks a flash, so you're completely stuck if you want to try to take photos indoors, yet it offers a 5MP shooter which is more, frankly, than we'd expected for a smartphone at this price.

There's autofocus and a reasonable range of shooting modes, including a macro mode, panorama mode, negative, black and white and sepia filters.

There are also settings for landscape, portrait, night, sports, party/indoor, beach/snow, sunset, dawn, fall colour, fireworks, text, candlelight and backlight shooting.

These exposure settings didn't make a great deal of difference to any of the sample shots we took, and the filters were much more useful.

INDOORS: Indoors in a garden centre these flowers look quite vibrant and the Samsung Galaxy Fit doesn't do too bad a job of differentiation in what is a quite complex photo

MACRO: The macro mode did quite well as long as we stayed no more than about eight inches from the subject. Here it's picked out a fair amount of detail and not lost sight of the background flowers either

OUTSIDE: This is quite a tricky subject as there's not much colour differentiation, but the image captures textures well

PANORAMIC: Panorama mode automatically shoots eight photos as you move the Samsung Galaxy Fit around, and stitches them together in a wide, narrow image. The stitching is quite clean, and you finish up with an image 2704 pixels wide and 400 pixels tall
