Awesome Camera If You Read the manual

 

I am writing this review just to combat the idiocy of the only review on cnet for this camera. First of all, the whole reason for smart auto mode is to not have to make any adjustments. If you want adjustments, use the custom mode or program modes....

HD Video in a sub-$100 digital camera ; Smart Auto Mode ; 12 Megapixel

Battery cord could be a little longer ; Wish it took standard usb connections

Decent Camera for the Average User

 

For the money it's a decent camera for taking every day pictures of friends and family. I wouldn't recommend this camera if you want to take scenery pictures for making high resolution desktop wallpaper or anything like that. If you want a camera that...

Small ; Light Weight ; Rechargeable Battery

When the flash is turned off it takes forever to capture an image. I have a hard time taking pictures with the flash turned off because they're always blurry because the shutter is open so long

BAD CAMERA

 

Too sad,[...] I have an awesome Olympus Fe 280 (8 megapixels), but unfortunately the flash die on me, so I wanted to get something similar or better [...] but this camera is not good. The battery life is really short, specially using the flash, it...

OK camera ruined by annoying feature

 

When auto setting works - maybe 80% of the time with my use, it works pretty well. I had been loving Samsung products lately (blu-ray, tv, appliances) so I was pretty disappointed by this camera.

OK quality pictures, pretty good quality videos ; Has a lot of preset options for photo types, e.g. Kids (quick shutter), small objects, scenery, etc)

Have to jump through menu selection to switch between capturing a video & taking a picture. This is extremely annoying as every time I want to capture special moments with my daughter, I miss it by the time I get done selecting. They should have easy...

OK Camera

 

Was cheap, at least when I got it. Did HD movies, and decent pictures (but not in smart mode). Makes a good paperweight once it dies (Not the camera's fault). When it was working, I did use it quite a bit to take a lot of home video and pictures....

The smart mode wasn't all that smart, most of the time pictures were out of focus. Facial recognition was a useless feature, usually picking up the wrong spots ; It's was kinda flimsy, slipped out of the hand from about 3 feet onto carpet, and now...
