The Maxima Impax 300i is Samsung's streamlined APS point-and-shoot camera. Ultracompact, the Impax 300i features automatic focus, programmed electronic autoexposure, with a 28 to 80mm zoom lens and automatic flash built in.
The autoflash comes with an array of modes, including Fill-in, Red-Eye Reduction, Flash-Off, Night Mode, and Slow Sync. Because the Impax 300i is an APS camera, film loading is drop-in, rewind is automatic, and you can print your pictures in three formats, including panoramic.
Other options include a self-timer, magnetic IX, PARm PQI, and Caption mode as well as date imprinting in five formats.

This is the APS camera to buy. Don't let the fairly unfamiliar name (in the camera world) of Samsung distract you from the best APS camera value by far. The 28-80 mm zoom lens outdistances all but 1 or 2 of the other APS cameras on the market now. It is also the same size as those advertised as "smallest available" at 3.8 x 2.25 x 1 inches. I don't know why this little guy doesn't get more attention, but it is a fantastic camera. The photos will not disappoint. And it's a rugged little thing! I fell into a stream while crossing with this camera hanging around my neck, and it was no worse for the wear after I removed the battery and let it dry out overnight. All the photos on the roll, before and after the plunge, were great. Buy it to believe it!
this little camera seemed really great when I bought it - lots of features, powerful zoom, and a bargain. However it didn't perform. The battery compartment door was very flimsy and often wouldn't close properly. It got splashed with water and stopped working entirely - for good - and I couldn't get the roll of film out, had to take it to a camera repair place to extract it but it was also ruined. They remarked on the flimsiness of the camera's construction. I wouldn't recommend it - spend a little more and get something sturdier.
This little camera is just loaded with features. I am really impressed, and I haven't even finished taking my first roll of pictures! The zoom is really zoomy and smooth. I like all the flash options, and the lcd panel on the back is very intuitive. This camera even comes with a couple of little reference cards, so that you don't have to tote the manual around or remember the more obscure options if you want.
