Samsung S860- the good and bad.

  • Excerpt: Last Christmas I got this Samsung- 860 Digital Camera as a gift from my brother. Although this camera looks great, its very hard to use. I have had about three digital cameras before this one, but this one is by far the worst one. Don't get me wrong the looks of this camera has a good effect but using it is a tad bit confusing. It has so many options on their and some do not even make sense. Some of the time the flash works and some of the time it does not.

Ok Camera~But wish I never bought it

  • Summary: This camera eats through regular batteries. I go through two in about a day of average picture taking. It also has this strange thing when you are finished taking a picture. Most cameras take about a second to process the picture. For some reason, this camera takes anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds per picture. So, if you are into fast picture taking, this is not the camera for you. About the only good thing it does, is it takes really nice pictures.

  • Excerpt: Where do i start? This camera has brought me more misery than anything else in the one year that I have owned it. I first got it senior year of high school to take to grad bash and that very same day, only a couple of days after the purchase, it started freszing and the screen would not move. I literally had to take the batteries out and put them back in to get the camera to turn off so I could turn it back on again so it could start working once again.

  • Excerpt: This camera is okay for a cheap camera. I guess it has a fair amount of features for its price but being the family event photographer, I do have some complaints. The display is a ittle muddy, not as good as other cameras I've seen. It has a maccro setting but the closeups weren't all that clear or detailed. It's not very good in low light, and it goes through batteries pretty quickly.

Awful Camera

Overstock
9 September 2009
  • Summary: Was given this camera for Christmas. By March, it spent more time at the Samsung Repair Center than it did with me. Lost photos of separate trips to the Grand Canyon, San Diego, Las Vegas and Easter with the kids because it would blur or flash wouldn't work. It has been sent back to Samsung 3 separate times. Last time I started the processs to send it back was June...and they have NOT returned the replacement they promised (it is now September).

Well, it worked for half a year

  • Summary: This was my first digital camera and I had medium expectations for it. It is a very inexpensive camera and is suitable for taking quick snapshots of people about three meters or further. On the other hand, it is horrendous at taking pictures of things VERY closeup. About 1-2 feet away, pictures will look blurry when even using the correct camera options. Pictures at extreme closeups of less than a foot away will turn out completely blurry.

Don't Buy

16 April 2009
  • Summary: The only reason that I gave this item 2 stars instead of one is because when I purchased it the price was much cheaper and up until this work it did work pretty good. I bought this camera for my husband last year for fathers day. It worked fine until this week when the lens stopped going in and closing, next thing I know it just completely stopped working and at the worst time while my husband was getting sworn into the army.

  • Summary: I bought this camera in pink in May 09. Initially it worked fine then about 2 mths. later the camera lense wouldn't retract when the camera was turned off. Also, when I tried to take pictures in the dark the screen would be blank and say "low light".Now, I can't take any pictures b/c the screen is white no matter what. Samsung also wants $58 for any repairs. Spend your money or something else, anyting else except for this model.
