Works great!

  • Summary: The camera works just fine and I am using it regularly and plan to put it to even greater use. It was a bargain for the money and I do not have to have the "very latest" gizmo to make me happy. I have always been "utilitarian" in that if it gets the job done it fine with me.

Help me Samsung!

  • Summary: This is the THIRD camera exactly like this one that I have purchased. I couldn't find one in a store which is why I bought a couple from Amazon. The first one I bought at Wal Mart because it was cheap and I took about 8,000 yes I said eight thousand!! photos with it and was amazed! Second one blurred sometimes while taking photos and kinda "jumped" as I pushed the button to take the photo. I figured it was a fluke so ordered another one. I LOVED my first one.

Samsung cust. service is horrible!

  • Summary: I bought this little camera approx. a year ago. Takes great pictures and is really easy to use. The Shutter started not closing approx. 8 months ago, so I assumed it was a battery problem. Over time, it started not closing and now it won't open, nor will it close. I emailed Tech support at Samsung, and they basically gave me the run around. I love this little camera and I do recommend purchasing it at such a low price, but I just hope it holds up better for someone else.

Won't take rechargeable! out of focus

Purviance, Amazon
20 November 2009
  • Summary: Samsung s860 problems: Out of focus, you can't use rechargeable batteries, the manual is lousy, and I've only been able to delete one picture at a time. this is a lousy camera. (Do the battery companies own Samsung? What's the deal?) My Cannon was much better, but it got stolen. I don't think anybody's going to steal this samsung. I'd give it a 1 star, but I they won't publish this review if I do without contacting Samsung.

Bought 3 of them

C. Riley, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought three of the Samsung S860s for some kids prior to a trip. One of the lenses didn't work (it was jammed) from the start. The other two (about 2 weeks old seem ok) but one was not from the start. Luckily Amazon will take it back.

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.

easy to use, good value

  • Summary: Loved this camera for the first week we owned it, that was until we tried to use it outdoors in bright sun. Since there is no viewfinder other than the rear panel lcd there is no way to frame a shot in bright sunlight when the lcd washes out. You are forced to look over the top of the camera and guess at the shot. Not a good thing when you are as active as we are. That is why I gave the camera an overall rating of 1 star yet evaluated the other items higher.

Decent camera. Picture quality could be better

Thomas Kong, Amazon
19 January 2009
  • Summary: Camera has lots of features for its price. It's picture quality however is not as sharp. All my indoor picture comes out quite grainy, regardless of the distance from the object. I am not sure if the flash is not strong enough, or the lens is the problem.
