Dissatisfied with pictures

 

Looking for a replacement.

Nice size. Excellent rechargeable battery stays charged for a long time

I'm disappointed with the picture quality, and the video is even worse. I expected a lot better since my old Samsung 3.2 mp Digimax V3 took excellent pictures and good videos

Awesome!

 

This camera has an excellent chip. Depending on the settings used and lighting, You can do 100% crops and look similar to an expensive DSLR rig. I've taken just as beautiful photos with this camera then I have with my own DSLR. The condenser mic can...

Small, sleek, pretty, big screen, personal image function, long battery life, fast to charge, and one of the best chips I've ever seen in a cheap point and shoot camera

Poor image stabilization(although not important if you know how to image and take video), audio turns off when zooming in video, and flash takes a while to charge

DIS - not that cool

 

keep looking

10.2 Mega pixels, sleek, cute, big screen, somewhat cheap

The most proprietary charger i have ever seen on a camera (better hope you don't lose the charger), bad image stabilization

Consumer review by:

Great value

 

DrillSpot seems to buck the corporate trend of ridiculous pricing of replacement parts. By being reasonable they gain a repeat customer who is willing to pay a little more for a quality product. The replacement part was complete assembly and well made.

Great quality and reasonable price

Nothing

Samsung SL202

 

I bought a blue Samsung SL202 for amateur photography. I have had this camera for about 4 years, and it has served me well. It's great for action shots AND still shots. Very high quality and satisfying for the price. It's great for amateur photography...

Clear pictures, good for action shots and a lot of effects my new Nikon doesn't have. Many different settings and easy-to-use. It's a hardy camera with a not-to-bright flash. Small and lightweight. Fairly quick to take a picture and the camera...

Not great video, becomes blurry without flash,, and not good settings for snow. This camera sometimes has trouble turning on and it only came with a charger to plug into my laptop. The charger cord was short

Samsung SL 202 Digital Camera

 

Overall this is a very nice camera. It is small, sleek and reliable. it feels sturdy in your hand and does not freeze despite being dropped. There a few shortcomings that I will discuss, but they are mainly personal pet peeves, someone will probably...

Conclusion: A very nice camera at an affordable price, it has some bells a whistles but honestly none of them make much noise in my book. The price alone will make this camera sell, but don’t get caught in the features, they aren’t useful.
