You Get What You Pay For

Mark The Shutterbug, Amazon
20 March 2010
  • Summary: It's an OK camera, but it reminds me that sometimes you do get what you pay for. I was looking for a megapixel camera that does 1080p recording. While the camera is sturdy, portable, and relatively easy to use, the image quality isn't the best, or at least compared to using my DSLR. It's a nice camera to keep in my pocket when I'm out with friends, but does come with compromises. The picture quality is either really good or fuzzy, even with autofocus on.

Samsung SL820

T. Porter, Amazon
2 July 2009
  • Summary: Great Shipping and transaction like always from Amazon. This camera was reviewed on engadget and cheap so I bought it for a new point and shoot with great video to boot! Good camera and easy to use. Highly recommend for the price point and quality of video/pictures.

Pretty Darn Close...

Dayna Reynoldson, Amazon
26 June 2009
  • Summary: I was hoping this would be the camera that I needed, and it comes pretty darn close. The main reason I purchased this camera was for the hd video capabilities. I enjoy taking quick little videos of my girls, and being able to upload them quickly for my family and friends to share. This camera lives up to that challenge quite nicely, although beware that when you take advantage of the 5X zoom, the sound cuts out until you are zoomed where you want, then cuts back in.

Capable camera, but durability and service spotty

Pat Furrie, Amazon
20 June 2009
  • Summary: Pros: nice pictures, high-def (720p) video mode, light weight, quick start-up time, wider-than-normal lens with 5X optical zoom. Cons: Questions on durability (see below), warranty service doesn't cover shipping to repair center, sound stops recording when using zoom. Purchased as a graduation gift, and was well-received. Worked well for recording video of graduation ceremony, and video quality of ceremony looked good.

Great Solid Feel Camera

D. Thun "gadget freak", Amazon
18 June 2009
  • Summary: I got the camera June 8. After learning most of its functions, it's a good camera for the money. Got it somewhere for $265 that includes shipping and tax in California. It is a little heavy than most compact. Nice brushed metal frame and quality is really good. The pictures are great. I played the videos directly from camera to TV and it's very clear and full screen with my analog 32" TV.

Very good camera

Gadgeteer, Amazon
15 June 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camera basically based on the review in Engadget of point and shoot cameras. I was replacing a broken Canon TX1 that I had used primarily for 720P video shooting.Video recording was very important.Size was also very important and we were looking at the Canon SD780 IS. My main camera is a Canon Rebel XTi. Overall I have found this camera to be very good. + Takes very good pictures overall + Very easy to use + Camera has nice smart modes.

no-nonsense compact

col, Amazon
28 November 2010
  • Summary: the samsung it100 is a nice little camera. well finished with a nice, clear screen. bought it for when i'm not carrying my sony dslr or a film camera with me as it sits on my pocket comfortably. all the usual features are present so i won't bother listing them. i mainly use it for street shots or macro work, and it produces crisp images, but the hd video is of good quality too. my only complaint is the battery life.

  • Summary: compact, easy to carry and fits into a small bag. The symbols on the camera are difficult to see when wanting to take video or photos in a dark environment.
