Sure, good pictures, but only when the camera actually works.

  • Excerpt: I bought one of these cameras and have had far to much trouble with it.  I bought it before an overseas trip so really couldn't take it back for exchange or refund in time and I got stuck with it.  The camera takes nice clear pictures when it actually works, but it seldom does work.  Almost from the beginning it saps the batteries in no time at all.  More than half the time, i get a file error message and the picture doesn't save at all.

If you want a quality camera this is not the camera you want.

  • Excerpt: We got this camera a few years ago and a few days ago it just quit. We changed the batteries etc and nothing. It won't even retract its lens. So for durability it gets an F as we never used it much after the aquarium incident. When we got this camera we had it just a few weeks and took it to the Aquarium to take some pictures. After 30 minutes of being on it got very hot and fried the memory card which sits directly behind the batteries. So no pics for vacation.

Can't afford to operate the camera

Safety Manager, Amazon
30 June 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the Samsung camera about 3 months ago thinking it would be a great camera to take along on my vacation to Alaska in August. Sure am glad I bought it early! I couldn't afford to buy batteries for this camera. On several occasions, I only got 6 pictures out of one set of batteries. I have an older digital, took the batteries out of the Samsung (It indicated they were dead) and used them in the other camera for 20 more pictures.

BUYER BEWARE!!!

Stephen T. Lamonica, Amazon

  • Summary: My camera arrived promptly, however after have it for only 8 days, I couldn't transfer the photos to my computer. A call to Samsung confirmed that the camera was faulty and needed to be mailed (at my expense with insurance) to a repair shop in NJ. I called Ace Photo Digital customer service to learn that they would not take the camera back, even though it was broken, because I didn't save the original packaging.
