Summary: I just received this camera about two weeks ago and I have been using it a lot to get familiar with it. It doesn't always take clear shots even when you are holding very still. Some of them are blurry and I have to retake the picture. So that is what I am most disappointed about. I read all the reviews and was expecting a camera that didn't take blurry pictures. Also, the Zoom doesn't go far.
Summary: I like this camera. It takes nice pics and has some cool features..like the cartoon that plays on the front so you can get the kiddies to actually look at the lens..some nice editing too. This has a wifi capability that sounds great but the truth is you have to be somewhere where these is wifi enabled in order to upload or carry a wireless router with you...sooooo...you end up coming home and sitting in front of your computer to upload them. kinda inconvenient.
Summary: I Order this Camera because they said it is a dual view but when i recevied there is non of that dual view thing the company told me to activate something but checking the camera and the manual there is nothing so I have to return it back the next day.
Summary: Samsung is notorious for this when it comes to all of their products: they have some of the coolest features, but neglect some of the most basic tasks. This camera's coolest feature is by far the front LCD display. You can't see it in the photo, but just under the Samsung logo on the front of the camera, there is a screen that lights up and allows you to see what's being taken. However, the downside of this camera is the menu.
Summary: Camera's fine BUT the battery dies within 15 minutes after a FULL CHARGE. This shouldn't happen to a new camera. I was in CHINA on vacation when this kept happening. I need to return this camera for a working one. How do I do this?
Summary: I bought this because my baby's due in 2 weeks, so I wanted to have a camera to take better quality pictures of her than my phones camera would. I loved this camera as soon as I got it. But getting the flash to work is VERY frustrating and a waste of time! It takes forever and sometimes you miss the moment you were trying to capture just by trying to get it to work! I've tried changing the settings, but just nothing worked.. no good.
Summary: Bought the Samsung PL120 for a family member earlier this year, wanted the front screen feature. That is a good, not great, camera. This DV300 has performed poorly in the weeks I have owned it. Poor battery life, Samsung smart menu that takes too long to decide how to take a photo, so you miss shots. Even on manual mode it is slow to react. The front screen is very hard to see so almost not worth having there.
