A S760 uma cmera popular com uma imagem excelente. tima reproduo de cor, nitidez afiada, boa gama dinmica. Comparada a outras cmeras na mesma categoria ela oferece muito por um preo convidativo, o que j notei ser uma poltica acertada da Samsung para...

H raras ocasies em que ela "congela", pra com a objetiva para fora e no responde a nenhum boto da mesma forma quando um PC "trava". Assim como no PC, deve-se dar um "boot" na mesma, ou seja abre-se o compartimento das baterias e fecha-se em seguida e...

Surprisingly good and full-featured camera. Especially for the price, it's better than I expected. Outsides it easily matches or even beats any other (much more expensive) pocketable digicam. There are some weaknesses when shooting insides (see...

I bought this camera for my daughter's 10th. Birthday last year (2008), and as far as overall features & photo quality, I think it's a pretty good camera. It was fairly priced $89.00 CDN and for the money, I would highly recommend this camera. About...

É minha primeira câmera, apesar de eu já ter "trabalhado" com uma Sony F717. A qualidade da imagem é muito boa, apesar de eu sentir falta de foco manual (acostumado com a F717). A qualidade do vídeo também é excelente. Não me arrependo da compra.

Não é bem um problema, mas sinto falta de um macro maior, tipo 2cm da Sony. O macro de 10cm da S760 é praticamente como se não tivesse macro.

First off, this is quite a nice looking camera and I figured that Samsung's been pretty reliable so far, so I thought I'd try things out with this one.

Overall, this is a fine enough camera, if you are not intending to be bringing it on rugged trips. Pictures come out good enough for sharing online or even printing. Just hope that it doesn’t decide to throw a tantrum during your priceless moments.

A great camera for beginners, and even for people that have experience, but uses way too much battery life, and Face Detection doesn't always work out. With a 2GB SD Card, and with highest quality and lowest size (1024x768), you can take up to 4147...

Great picture and video quality ; Big Screen ; Pre-loaded effects (b+w, sepia, negative, custom colours, and red, green, or blue tints) ; Manual mode for advanced users ; DIS (Digital Image Stabilization) is included, and works quite good ; Easy to use...

Plastic feels quite cheap, and not that scratch resistant ; Uses batteries way too fast ; Freezes quite often

A user friendly P&S. Easy to use features include Face Detection and Digital Image Stabilization proves useful for beginners like myself. Very affordable at S$139.00 but drains battery quite quickly. 2 Alkaline battery is good for about 70 shots only....

Face Detection ; Digital Image Stabilization

Drains Battery quickly

I was intitially very hesitant about choosing this camera for 2 reasons: 1. At $89.99 (regular price) I did not believe this could be a decent performing camera, 2. Preferred a LI-ion battery. I gave the camera a chance despite its price tag and have...

Excellent picture quality even in low light, high res LCD screen, digital image stabilization, face recognition, self portrait mode, good programs, easy to navigate, records video w/ sound, bonus voice recorder, cute and compact, choice of 4 colours

Battery type (AA) adds a bit of weight to the 123g camera (still light), plastic construction
