Excerpt: I bought this camera on line the next day after my daughters first other brand stopped working. I found it at circuit city 129.00 free shipping. I found the lime green, my daughters favorite color. This camera works awesome. The view screen is large the views are of a very clear quality. It uses double a battteries. She has loaded that memory card up already with taking many shots using the flash. It does not eat up the battery.
Excerpt: I bough this for my son who wanteda easy point and shoot camera. but is does so much more. Normal Digital Cameras take low resolution video, but this Camera takes near DVD quality Video. The resolution is actually higher than a regular DVD. It's 800x592 and it's captured in AVI format. You can pause the recording instead of starting a new video it resumes recording from where you paused! It was not high definition but it sure wasn't bad coming from a little small camera.
Excerpt: Really nice and awesome. It is something that a technically challenged person might use. I really have no background or affinity for technology, yet I used it. What I mean by using it is that I actually was able to upload pictures, edit them, and even make them into real photos.
Summary: Bought one of these Samsung S73's for my wife, for her trip to Ireland,after several failed attempts to find a budget camera that was easy for her to use,had decent battery life and took good photos and video. The S73 survived her,the trip, rain, general misuse and she brought back great photos. So I bought another one, for her a back up of course.
