Excerpt: Before I purchased this Samsung SL202 camera, I was a little hesitant. I previously owned two different Samsung camera's and I loved the quality of the pictures they took but it seemed as though I had the same malfunction with both which caused them to stop working. With both of my previous Samsung camera's, my zoom lens always seemed to get stuck. I eventually decided to give this one a shot.The price was very affordable and the camera was very easy to use.
Excerpt: This little camera goes the mile, I photograph rainbows, water, closeups of nature, sunsets-- things that don't always work out--- and I can usually find a setting to make it happen. I use the "dawn" setting in the evening for the sunsets as it lightens things up, and use "smart auto" when I can't figure out what to do. Clarity, skintone, night shots fireworks all are excellent Inexpensive reliable camera, takes 3 hours to charge...
Excerpt: As I said in other reviews, Samsung is one of my favorite brands. They're inexpensive but make decent quality products that are user friendly. This camera is no different. It's nice, sleek and light weight and easy to use. I liked that the help guide is right on the camera. Convenient! I also like the different features. Most of them are pretty basic..night, snow, landscape, close up..etc. But the Beauty Shot feature is nice.
Summary: No stranger to the Point & Shoot camera arena. Handled P&S's from Nikon, Canon, Polaroid, Panasonic, Pentax, Vivitar, and Argus. Recieved the teal version of this model late xmas of 2009. So far my camera still works fine with no major issues. Only thing that's no more is the black paint on the bayonet ring, and the mid-section of the camera. Likes of the product: Less image noise, or none in most settings. Macro-mode very noticable detail in close objects.
Summary: I bought a blue Samsung SL202 for amateur photography. I have had this camera for about 4 years, and it has served me well. It's great for action shots AND still shots. Very high quality and satisfying for the price. It's great for amateur photography or just pictures. It has fair zoom and maybe 10 minutes on video. Not ideal for those looking to have good video on the camera.
Pros: Clear pictures, good for action shots and a lot of effects my new Nikon doesn't have. Many different settings and easy-to-use. It's a hardy camera with a not-to-bright flash. Small and lightweight. Fairly quick to take a picture and the camera certainly is great for the price. It has a timer, effects, crop, zoom, video, and much more. It also has good battery life.
Cons: Not great video, becomes blurry without flash,, and not good settings for snow. This camera sometimes has trouble turning on and it only came with a charger to plug into my laptop. The charger cord was short.
Summary: This camera appears to be about a year or so old. Still alot of life and works like a charm. It is easy to use - has alot of setting options - and makes great pictures. I needed a camera with more mega pixels and didn't want to spend a fortune. Also, pink is my favorite color. There was no instructions manuel; however, on YouTube there was a demo and detailed information. VEry happy!
Summary: Like the small size and easy to use functions. Inexpensive, just point and shoot, has good setting for more advanced users too. Could use a regular site window. Very happy with purchase all the same!
