Summary: Takes great pictures but wish the zoom was better and it's a slippery little devil. Tendency to lay on its back/screen, a better design would have been a more rubbery grip. Not sure how you can use a protective case the way the screen is designed.
Summary: I shoot weddings for a living and got this camera from free promotion Samsung was doing, so I can't say much about price. The mint color is fun, very different from the generic black cameras I'm used to. I only have the 9mm prime right now, planning to get the 17mm f1.8 IS lens when it comes out. The image quality is wonderful on this camera, definitely something I'll take with me vacationing instead of my bulky, expensive SLRs.
Summary: Takes wonderful pictures with great quality. The touch screen is easy to use and has many great features. Great for taking pictures indoors and out. I went ahead and got the 9-30 lens too for when I want to zoom in a bit closer. Has awesome video quality too. Love the WiFI feature and being able to share my pictures with my Samsun cellphone.
Summary: First of all, this is very expensive. It doesn't come with a zoom lens, you need to by that separate for at least another $300. The lens it comes with doesn't even have an exterior lens cap so it's only a matter of time before it gets scratched! Also the software leaves much to be desired and you even need to buy the photo viewer separately (the CD is a trial version only). For $400 they could at least through in a decent photo viewer / movie viewer program!
