Summary: I bought this camera for a vacation and could not have been more disappointed. I did a lot of research to find the best camera for me in the $80-$120 range and I'm frustrated that I chose this one. The shutter speed was painfully slow and as a result about 1,200 out of the 2,000 pictures I took were blurry beyond recognition.
Summary: There's an issue with the camera. Most of the time after a shot is taken, you have to wait between 2 - 20 seconds to take another shot. WTF? This is junk. You typically take 2 pictures, one after another, especially if you have a stranger taking the picture for you. I'm going to stay with Canon.
Summary: I AM USED TO THE STURDY SONY CYBERSHOTS, PUT IN THE POCKET, ECT, TOUGH, WAS INTERESTED IN THE DUAL VIEW, SO WENT WITH THIS, THE ON OFF BUTTON IS EASY TO HIT, AND I FIND IT TURNED ON BY ACCIDENT ALL THE TIME WHEN I CARRY IT, WENT FROM POCKET TO A STRAP AROUND MY NECK, I PUT UP WITH THIS FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS, AND NOW THE LENS SHIELD INTERMITTANTLY DOSENT OPEN, AND NOW ONLY PARTIALLY CLOSED, I LIKE THE QUALITY OF THE SHOTS AND THE CAMERAS OPERATION, IS SOOO SLOWLY...!
Summary: We bought this camera and the same day, for some reason it stopped recording onto the memory card. we called and samsung couldn't figure out why and wouldn't replace it for us. Luckily, we bought it at Costco and they did let us return it. we replaced it with another that was exactly the same. The first day we used that one, we accidentally dropped it, just like everyone does at some point. not a terrible drop, and not on a super hard surface.
Summary: I had the send the camera back, the zoom button was damaged, images on my camera where appearing as file error and I could not view them and then my screen developed a glittery appearance. I'm pretty certain the camera was faulty from the start but the product itself was nice. The front camera view mode seemed to make images blurry and sometimes the camera would take too long to take a photo.
Summary: I bought this camera and also found it very poor. The speed to take a photo is very slow and if you have kids or other fast moving objects you will be wasting your money. Shutter lag (speed to click the button to taking the picture) can take up to 3 seconds which will drive you crazy. The front screen and kids attract device is clever but of little use as the picture quality is so poor - Lots of photos are too blurry. Very poor in lower light conditions as well.
Excerpt: Никогда не покупайте компакты, у которых физ. размер матрицы менее 1/1,7 дюйма, никогда не покупайте компакты, у которых светосила объектива при 5-кратном оптическом зумме хуже, чем 2,8 и 4,0 на "коротком" и "длинном" концах соответственно.
Pros: Абсолютно никаких.
Cons: Очередная безделица для полумутантов, падких на рекламу, типа тех, которые на дисплее камеры. С таким физическим размером матрицы и жутко темным стеклом можно снимать только голые задницы гыгыкающих существ, носящихся по пляжу с пивными бутылками в передних конечностях.
