Summary: I got this as my first camera 3 Christmas's ago and have absolutley loved it! For the reasonable price this camera has been very durable. It has withstanded several bangs against walls and drops on the on the ground and still works fine. It has only had a couple of glitches, but nothing serious.
Summary: I bought two of these cameras for my kids. They are easy to use and have a variety of use options (timer, video, still shots). My one critique is they burn through batteries fairly fast, so use rechargeable AA's instead of disposable!
Summary: I keep this camera in my service truck for those broken parts that has little or no description in the service manual or parts books. The NiMh batteries I use is rated for 2600MH and seems to keep the charge for three months.
The truck is cold on cold days but the camera starts right up.
Summary: Quick camera features review:
runs on 2 AA batteries, either nimh or alkaline (I rec: nimh)
2 GB memory card has space for over 1200 photos at 6mp. (not included)
optical and digital zooms, optional image stabilization,
various single picture modes, video, programmable, timer mode, manual aperture...
Summary: I know alot of people are bagging on this camera. I got it while it was on sale. I like the camera. For me, I'm an amateur photographer for fun. I spent 3 days looking at different cameras and doing research. I've always bought Samsung cameras.
Summary: Great cheap backup camera with excellent features. A camera with all the features that this camera packs would have sold for over $350 just 3 years ago.
Pros: Low battery life using rechargeable NiMH batteries is not a problem unique to this camera. The problem with all NiMH batteries are that they are rated at 1.2V not 1.5V like the disposable alkaline batteries. This creates problem for many digital cameras. However, unlike many other digital cameras...
Cons: Slightly bulkier than other budget cameras that cost $30-40 more Samsung cameras may not have the brand name cache like Nikon , Canon, Sony or even Casio.
Summary: Physically it's a little bigger than the more expensive digicams. Max image capacity is only 47 1024x768 at the lowest quality setting using the included internal storage.
Pros: Acceptable compact camera for the price, but if you can spare another 50 dollars for a better camera, do it.
Cons: Battery life is about 45mins (iirc), even with a dark LCD setting and other power-saving features set to max. This was a gift, but I tested it first with the included alkaline AA batteries, and then with new & fully charged rechargables (and changed the battery type in the camera config). Would p...
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my aging Canon 3 MP and for the most part the pictures are on par or slightly better. The canon could only do 15 fps movies with weak sound but this camera makes the canon look like a toy in that department.
Pros: When on sale you can't beat the deal with the features. The full size 30 fps video with audio is what drew me to the camera. On that point I have been more than satisfied. Battery life is excellent for NiMH batteries but have an extra pair or two charged up. The size, light weight and fit in your...
Cons: The auto mode can be flaky like red eye reduction when not needed and random use of ASR. The flash results can be unpredictable at times and some shots are actually darker than what you see with your eyes. Low light situations can be grainy and some photos may look like they were taken on a 1 or ...
Summary: I purchased this camera for my 7 year old son. He did not want a children's camera; he wanted a real one like mommy. This camera is very easy for him to operate and he loves the movie mode. Great camera for the price
Summary: I wanted to buy a fun, inexpensive digital camera for my six year old. After looking into all the cameras designed for kids (Fisher Price and others) I realized that they had few features and poor picture quality.
