Summary: I did not buy this at Amazon, but as a prime member, wanted to post my review for this camera. Picture quality was great. Heavy solid body felt like good quality. Had taken about 1000 pictures when it died, and no abuse including drops. The facebook utility was kind of cool and useful, but a bit quirky to use, since it does not remember passwords. Occasionally it would lock up with the lens extended, and I would simply remove and reinstall the battery.
Summary: The pictures are very sharp and there are numerous settings and functions that I'm just beginning to learn. However, the wi-fi connectivity is a bit wonky and I have yet to get it to connect in any meaningful way. I tend to dive in with a gadget instead of reading all the manuals, but something like this should be pretty self expanitory, yet it is not. I can still connect the camera via a cable and that works well.
Summary: I couldn't figure out how to upload pictures to Facebook. It could be a compatibility issue with Facebook Timeline. Anyway, there is absolutely no support for this product. It works great, otherwise! I think it was an early wifi-capable camera, with more features than you can shake a stick at. I can even connect wirelessly to my flat screen TV and swipe the touchscreen on the back to display pictures from the camera on the TV.
Summary: bought through amazon for $75 from BLINQ as new with 1year warranty. a great deal in anyones book. VERY happy with product, i'm a pixel peeper and i still love this camera and all it's features 11/19/2012 couple weeks since last review still not a single problem and i really put this camera to the test.
Summary: My wife bought a $240.00 touch screen camera. I didn't like the price. I thought it was too much money. So I told her, "I can get you a better camera for half that price." And I did. The Samsung CL80 14.0 MP camera turned out to be a great product and a great buy.
Summary: I am very pleased with this camera. I must admit it has more bells and whistles than I can use but for a back-up camera on hikes and bike rides it's perfect. The pictures are very resolute; the ease of loading onto my computer was a whiz; the auto settings are perfect for quick shots of wildlife; the battery seems to last forever. I would totally recommend this camera to anyone.
