Samsung's inexpensive DV300F gives you a neat front LCD for self portraits, a sharp lens, and an excellent Wi-Fi experience. But this compact camera is downright sluggish.

Inexpensive. Sharp lens. Front-facing LCD for self portraits. Excellent Wi-Fi integration. Many in-camera effects

Waxy images at middling ISO settings. Sluggish performance. Short zoom range. HD video capture limited to 720p. No HDMI output

If you were to look at only the photo quality of the DV300F, then you might have a tough time justifying it's $249 CDN price tag when many other cameras exist in that price range (or slightly above it) which take marginally better quality pictures....

Good Camera for a home with Wi-Fi

 

Bought this camera for the wi-fi feature so that we can send photos directly from the camera to relatives over e-mail. This feature is nice and easy to use, but the pictures come from the Samsung e-mail address. It would be nice if you could program...

Simple to use, fair price, wi-fi feature is nice

front display is odd, e-mailing photos can be timely
