Summary: Tried out the camera at a family wedding. The quality of the pictures is excellent. The settings are relatively easy to figure out. The only negative thing I noticed was that the batteries don't last very long, so make sure you have plenty of them when you go out to take pictures.

Summary: I've had this camera for about a week and have taken around 100 pictures in that time, it's a solid performer keeping up with my quick shots fairly well. I wasn't expecting a whole lot from such an inexpensive camera but I knew I wasn't purchasing an SLR. This camera takes pretty good pictures with little trouble.
Summary: We have used this camera for the past month and found it to be a solid and practical digital camera. My daughter is the primary user and had made the most of the digital effects, but the rest of the family has gotten good use out of it with little training or reading of manuals. We recently shot some video of a fireworks show and were pleasantly suprised when the audio track was clear and understandable.
Summary: I am very happy with this camera,that I received last week, but there is one little problem that I ran into. It really eats up the battery life if using regular Alkaline batteries. The manual doesn't state this but I found out when speaking with customer support that one should really use rechargeable batteries. I am now in the process of seeing how long these will last.
Severe Manufacturing Irregularities Across Individual S730 Cameras... BUT, It's A Webmaster's DREAM!!!

Summary: After a month of wrestling with trying to get a problem-free Samsung S730, I have really mixed feelings about this camera, but I like the one I have. The problem is, there are pronounced manufacturing irregularities that cause one camera to perform differently from another camera of this same model.
Great camera for $100 (plus $20 NiMH rechargeables, plus $20 512MB memory card)

Summary: My (very thoughtful) uncle gave me a Samsung Digimax S630 6MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Advanced Shake Reduction Zoom (Black) and a 512MB card for my graduation, which took about 30 pictures, went through 4 batteries, and promptly died, not to be awoken again. We took it back, and upgraded to this S730, which has given me comparatively very little trouble--and with a nicer picture quality.
Summary: I bought this camera for my girlfriend over a year ago. We used standard alkaline batteries, and literally after three to five flash pictures, the batteries were toasted. We assumed that we just got a dud camera, and it has sat unused for a year. I'm surprised we hadn't thrown it away. Then, after reading other reviews on this site, we got some Kodak 2500mAH rechargeable camera batteries and put them in this camera. IT'S WORKING GREAT NOW!
Summary: The camera is sleek, light and easy to carry. Zoom is decent and picture quality also good. What surprised me is that I did not expect good night-time pictures with this camera. However, the night-time pictures are great! Great buy for less than $100.
Summary: This camera is pretty good for any person. I was trying photo art with it and it's not excelent for that... but for memory photos is great. I had another like this one but with 6.5 MP, then I bought this one.. then I bouth another one like this for a friend. Now i'm saving money to buy another one, because a couple of days ago i lost this one i bought :( I think this is the best option because of the price, and because is a really good product.
