Summary: Specifically, I hate that it's taken me over a year to acknowledge that this camera just isn't that good. No hope of returning it now. I bought this camera after reading a bunch of reviews online. I would agree that it's pretty easy to use, it's heavier than other models but not too heavy, it has a decent zoom, and it does in fact have all of the features it advertises. Here's the problem: The picture and video quality is terrible.
Summary: I've purchased this camera nearly a year ago and have been pleased with the pictures and the small form factor. I'm not thrilled with the proprietary USB cable but very much like the LED battery charge indicator on the plug which saves me from having to turn the camera on and look at the battery indicator.
Thought this would be a good deal like many Samsung products are ... but

Summary: I got this camera because it was on sale, a good bargain for a 12 MP camera. I have a Samsung 52" LCD HD TV that I am so happy about and love a lot. The price was much less than the competition from Sony or Mitsubishi on the TV I felt like I got a real value and thought I would trust Samsung again because I knew what they are capable of. The SL620 is a nice form factor, fits in my pocket and comes out ready for action quickly.
