Not worth the buy

  • Summary: This point and shoot camera has a lot of nice features and even comes with a protective cover but it's not a great camera. I was disappointed with the picture quality. Pictures come out better with the black & white and retro settings. Video is ok I guess but, what else can you expect from an inexpensive camera.

Disappointed....very

  • Summary: I bought this camera Sept. 2010 and it has sat in the box since then. I just could not part with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 6.0MP, 6x optical zoom.....But our community newspaper requires at least 8MP in any photographs submitted for publication. Here in the No. Ga. Mountains, we have abundant wildlife and plants that I enjoy photographing. So I was forced to stop using my beloved Panasonic. I've been using this camera, which was ninety nine dollars in Sept.

Not a Good Choice.

  • Summary: I was looking for a very simple point and shoot to replace my aging Canon. I wanted to be able to charge the camera through my computer and I wanted a short lag time in between taking pictures, and this one seemed to fit the bill. I do enjoy those aspects of the camera. However, I have had the camera for 5 months now and I would return it if I could only find the paperwork. The auto settings are terrible - I've missed a lot of shots because of its inability to focus.

My cell phone takes better pics (Samsung Epic)

  • Summary: It's a pretty camera at a really cheap price but none of the pictures I've taken with this camera have been frame worthy. It takes to long to change the settings and most of the pictures come out blurred. Works best with outdoor lighting. One good feature it does have is the color settings for after you've taken a pic. Gives it a nice touch. I let my 6 year old keep this camera.

Only for close-ups.

  • Summary: I bought this camera when it was new on the market. At first I really liked it. I took a few close-up images and man they were amazing! Truly spectacular! .... And then I started taking group photos, outings, parties. Pictures taken outside are awful. I hate it and am so disappointed in Samsung. I tried different settings, aperature, everything. To most people they probably wouldn't care, but I'm extremely picky.

Don't be suckered in by fancy specs

  • Summary: I bought this camera as a gift but also use it - I was sold when I saw it had superior specs to most (not just megapixels but better zoom etc) and got it on sale for a fair bit cheaper than the others. Plus it (supposedly) had good customer reviews. PS I have taken my share of pictures, including a fair bit of 35MM SLR work. I know how to take pictures (not that this should really matter much with this kind of camera). It stinks. Why?

Not worth even the low price

  • Summary: The camera has a default setting of Macro (close up picture taking). Even when you change to a all purpose shooting setting, the camera is VERY VERY slow, so you often miss the shot. When it does finally take the picture, it is not the quality you expect from a 12.2 MP camera. Really disappointing.

Short Life

  • Summary: When this camera was purchased it worked fine. It didn't take long before the charger no longer worked! What's the point of having a camera that you can't use? Choose a different product.

Decent Camera, Unless...

  • Summary: Was searching for a portable point and shoot to supplement my Canon SX120 which is a bit bulky. Research led me the Samsung SL605 which has some great specs: 12 megapixel resolution, 5x zoom, small and portable. Up to now I have only owned Canon digi-cams but I thought I'd give Samsung a shot since I do have one of their TV's. I wasn't able to test the SL605 at the store besides holding it which was a mistake...
