Summary: So disappointed this camera has quit charging and also cannot load the pics to my PC. I even replaced the charger/USB cord with another one. That worked for a very short while, and now, it is not working again. Therefore, I believe it may be a defective port in the camera itself.
Summary: I have owned two of these cameras. The first one was purchased a little over a year ago and wouldn't work out of the box. It wouldn't zoom in or out and when it did it froze and stopped working . Nothing would correct the problem so I returned it for a replacement.
Summary: Excellent camera for the price. At standard zoom, the picture quality is top notch and crystal clear. When going to digital zoom and maxed out, quality of very grainy and sometimes not useable. Multitude of settings will keep camera fans happy, but the auto feature does and awesome job.
Summary: Purchased this camera last year (Nov 2010) based upon the favorable reviews. Gave it to my wife for christmas and she has been using it regularly for the last year. It worked good for at least 9-10 months then started to develop minor issues.
Summary: I will not get into the detailed features of this camera since the two previous reviewers have done a great job of that. However, I disagree with the previous reviewer's assessment of picture quality. I have been taking photographs since I was 7.
Summary: Not going to lie, it's a step up from my Kodaks C743 and M863, I love the super long zoom, the image quality can be good if you REALLY work with it, but I'm far less than impressed for the amount I payed for it in October 2010.
Summary: Samsung HZ30W 12.0 MP Digital camera (Black) I initially loved this camera for its ease taking HD video and convenient pocket size for all the features. But like the others, the picture quality does not warrant 12 megapixel image size; it is a high definition blur.
