Summary: The pictures are definitely up to par, with DSLRs. Sharpness, color and depth are first rate. Macro photography is also one of the strong points of this camera. Adorama cameras were so efficient with the delivery too! Thank you.
Summary: I must have read all of the available reviews on this camera and its closest competitors before purchasing it. I wanted a serious camera to supplement my DSLR - something very portable that would produce high quality pictures similar to my DSLR. I had a specific preference for a 10 megapixel camera with a larger sensor than the typical compact. I did not want an ILC (didn't want to buy or carry yet more lenses - might as well just carry my DSLR).
Summary: My memories (pictures) are definitely in good hands with this camera. The lens is fantastic. Everything comes in crystal clear. An example of the clarity, there is a bridge that I use in my experimental sessions; the railings on this bridge have designs that are fairly intricate (yet not too ornate). I am capable of seeing these railings and the intricate designs within them from pictures I take of it from quarter mile away. To me, that is fairly impressive.
Summary: I can't say enough about this camera. There are at least half a dozen of them amongst my friends, now. A little nichy given the limited zoom. The digital zoom is awful, as are most. Higher res video capture would be nice. All in all, no complaints. You can't get more for your money. I checked, and rechecked...
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, easily accessed full manual control
Summary: This camera is just bliss for hand-held low-light and night photography. You see an image on the screen, take the photo, and 9 times out of 10 the photo is exactly the same as the image you saw. Storefronts at night, restaurants, lights, perfect, no noise. When I shot film, I dreamed of a camera that could do this.
Summary: I can review from experience of small sensor cameras. I have had Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Fujifilm. All are good cameras, but this one is very special. Some of the easiest macro shooting I have ever experienced. Love the awesome tilt screen. Focus is quick and very accurate. Build quality is the best I have used. This camera is a joy to hold. It just feels right. Aluminum casing has nice accents. I can hardly wait for Samsung's next TL model.
Pros: Bright display, Durable, Realistic color, macro ability, fun factor
