Summary: Great camera with long range zooming capabilities. On one battery you should be able to get around 150-200 pictures, so you should probably carry a spare or two. Recently tested out the zoom range at the San Francisco Giants game. I was sitting literally at the highest part of the upper deck well from the home plate, and still got a clear picture of the batter on the diamond back. Although you get can only get 14mp at 10x, it's still capable of zooming up to 20x at 3mp.
Summary: Samsung made a big mistake by discontinuing this camera. Pound for pound, it is a fantastic point & shoot camera. The presets eliminate the need to worry less about f/stops, ISO's & apeture settings and worry more about properly framing the subject. The video quality for a point & shoot was superior than their later models. While shooting HD videos, it eats up memory but the Micro SD cards are relatively cheap so no worries there.
Summary: This is a great little camera. It's really only good for what I would call "snap-shots" as it doesn't zoom like a full sized DSLR but it's a heck of a lot more convenient as it fits in a pocket or my wife's purse! In photo-taking situations such as the Naval Aviation museum at Pensacola, I took photos with a DSLR and my wife used this Samsung. Her photos were just as good as mine. The DSLR will exceed the capabilities of this camera with landscapes, however.
Summary: I bought this camera because I needed something simple for a trip to Paris. I already had another digital camera, but I thought this would be an upgrade. I was sooo wrong. The "automatic" mode sometimes causes delayed shutter (based on lighting) and totally blurs the pictures. I can't tell you how many pictures have been ruined by this. I was constantly retaking pictures and changing settings to get the best outcome.
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.
