Summary: I bought this for my wife to carry in her purse because of it's slim, compact and lightweight. However it does not feel cheap. Most of the compact cameras we looked at had either a 3X, 4X or 5X zoom. The camera has a 10X optical zoom which works great and the video is not bad. When zoomed in, the video is a little shaky though. It uses a micro SD card and I bought her a class 6 card for better video quality.
Summary: I have only had the camera for a few days but it is great. I took really clear video yesterday and have taken many still pictures that are extremely clear. I had a Nikon Coolpix camera that I replaced and this Samsung camera is 100 times better.
Summary: I bought this camera cause I already had another one just like it and had to have it repaired after a year and a half only because I dropped it. Wanted to have a back up just alike because I take pictures doing house inspections every day and this new camera has already failed after less than a year. Now I have to buy another back up. This camera may be good for occasional use but doesn't hold up to heavy use.
