Excerpt: This is a camera that I have been looking for - a front-facing LCD to take holiday shots of me and my good lady, using an "arm extender" (e.g. Quikpod). In theory I should be able to take such shots accurately. However in practice the front LCD is too small and not bright enough outdoors to make it of any great practical value (for use with an extender). Of course it's ok held at arm's length.
Summary: I would love to review this product fully but as it stopped working after 1 day, it is difficult to do so. The lens extended and the camera froze and that was it (yes, the battery was fully charged...) The little I saw of it was very impressive and I think it is going to be great fun using it. I must stay that Amazon was very good about replacing the camera and made it as painless as possible.
Summary: I recently purchased this camera from a TV shopping channel. Nice camera, relatively easy to use but the user guide is only available via a CD rom provided by Samsung. Not a problem if you can print out the 100+ pages, but who wants to cart this amount of paper around with them when out and about? When paying £250 + for a camera I expect more than a cd-rom! Camera going back - maybe Samsung will learn a lesson (or not).
