Okay for pictures--HORRIBLE for battery life

A. Reynolds, Amazon
1 September 2010
  • Summary: This was the first dig camera I have had that didn't use a rechargable battery. It simply devours batteries. I just read another review that was really helpful, advising not to use Alkaline batteries with the camera, but I read it too late. Now my camera won't work with any kind of batteries. The battery life got worse and worse (even with batteries right out of the package).

Buy Lots of Batteries! Lots and Lots of Them!

  • Summary: I bought the Samsung S730 camera to replace a Nikon CoolPix L4 camera that I gave to my son. The Nikon CoolPix 4 Mega Pixel took excellent quality pictures, especially outdoors (I actually printed an shot of a tiger at the Naples (FL) zoo to 23 x 17" on an HP130 printer, and even with only 4MP, the print quality is outstanding! That print is framed and hanging on my wall, and there are no tale-tale signs of pixelation or that it was taken with a digital camera!).

Not good picture quality

  • Summary: My boyfriend bought me this camera for my birthday. I had been wanting a new digital camera to replace my old Fuji Finepix, which I had for four years. He just went to the store and picked something out, no research on it or anything. The camera was OK at first, but it does suck away batteries. I purchased rechargeables for it after a month or two. You have to have rechargeables for it, otherwise you will waste so much money on batteries.

Be careful with this!

  • Summary: I very lightly dropped this camera on the carpet from about 6 inches away, jammed the zoom and the whole camera never went on again. Also, there is a significant amount of time between pictures, and the screen goes black, which makes it difficult to shoot kids, pets or anyone who can't sit still for a few mintutes.

Great pictures but terrible battery life

B. G. Leedy, Amazon
6 June 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera to use while hiking and otherwise away from a constant supply of batteries. If you buy this camera, you better bring huge supply of batteries with you. For instants, once in a while I would get maybe 20 or so photos before it shut down, sometimes only 3 or 4 and a couple times it would not start up with store fresh Duracells. It always seemed to shut down when I needed it the most.

Great pictures, but it stopped working.

Johnson, Amazon
22 April 2008
  • Summary: We purchased the camera along with (2) 4G SDHC cards for my wife to take with her on a European vacation with her sisters. Her pictures turned out great. A true point-and-click was what she wanted and the S730 didn't fail. That was, until she got home. I was taking some pictures and a little video when the low battery indicator started beeping and immediately shut-off with the lens still extended.

  • Summary: I took 16 photos before the camera stopped working. It read low battery on the image screen. I have tried several replacement batteries however, none were successfull in making it work. There is only a low hum when you push the power button. I was greatly disappointed.

Bad call

  • Summary: I bought this camera in place of my fiances old digital camera because I thought it was a good deal for the quality and features we would be getting. It has been a big waste of money! I bought the expensive lithium batteries that are recommended and they last for about 5-10 minutes of camera use. We can take about 10-20 picutes than it cuts off. Not too good when we are buying batteries at app. $2.50/battery. I am sending this camera back and getting my money back.
