Summary: I've been doing research for ages wondering which camera I will like and be happy with. I am a 3d artist so that means I need to take outstanding pictures of texture such as wood or metal. And I'm also a VFX artist shooting in motion is a must.
Summary: Good features with many user options. The screen is nice as well. The video is not too bad (for a point and shoot), oh and battery life is decent. I can't think of many other positives for this thing. A camera like (in this price range), should take decent photos. It produces subpar images.
Summary: The Samsung HZ25W 12.5MP Digital Camera w/24x Optical Zoom .... My husband purchased this camera for my birthday to replace a Fuji FinePix S5100 I had for years. I wanted to upgrade to more pixels and I was looking at cameras with long zoom range.
Summary: Overall this camera is impressive, great picture quality, ease of use and full featured. Only cons I've found so far are: - Battery duration (specially in smart mode since it's continuosly focusing, use P mode instead) - The AE lock and +/- buttons lose their imprints very easily Other than that you...
Summary: Okay, I have only had the camera for a day. So far, I love it. The flash on it is amazing. I took a picture in my living room in complete darkness, and it looks great. The "Smart Auto" mode is amazing. Every picture I took using Smart Auto mode looked fantastic.
Summary: Understanding how zoom ratios are determined on digital cameras, I would like to correct the individual that rated this camera as two stars, mainly because of his error on how he interprets zoom ratio.
Summary: I found the Samsung HZ25W settings to be extremely sensitive. If I held the camera wrong the shooting modes would change. The rated zoom is a bit misleading too. The camera is rated to 624mm. Actually, the optical zoom is 124.8mm. If you multiply that by the 5X digital zoom, you get 624mm.
Summary: Unbelievable camera for the price. The dual image stabilization allows for rock steady photos, even at full zoom. I just took a photo of the moon in broad daylight at 24X zoom without a tripod, and it came out perfect! The camera is easy to use and takes flawless photos in any light.
