Summary: I searched and reviewed customer reviews and then repeated the process for almost a year. I am not disappointed at choosing this camera. It is small enough to be kept with me and easy enough to use for quality shots as quickly as I can point it towards the subject. The color is my favorite so it's an added bonus for me. Besides, I wanted something other than black so it would be easy to find and identify. This fits the bill on all counts.
Summary: My wife forgot to pack her bigger, bulkier camera for a long road trip, so we ordered this one and had it shipped to a mid-point hotel along the way. (My wife is a purple-person, so she loves the color.) The optical zoom works really well for a small, relatively inexpensive P&S, and the low-light photos are better than expected. MicroUSB charging makes it easy to find a charger. Overall, an excellent value in a small, inexpensive camera.
It's not the product that is bad, it's the Seller!

Summary: Ordered this black camera to give as a gift, because I had ordered the purple one last month (offered by Ritz Camera) and I am very pleased with the camera itself. Unfortunately, this Seller, Electronics Basket is falsely advertising these as brand new cameras. I first ordered this on 7/23/13, it was delivered on 7/24/13 with my amazon prime. Opened the amazon box to find the camera box inside had already been opened.
Summary: Have owned both Nikon and earlier Samsung models, but this is the best so far for the investment. The photos are clear, crisp, and the colors are bright and true. The only issue was the microchip (not included w/purchase) The chip I purchased came with an adapter which would not function with any card reader...ended up buying a reader which would take the chip straight away, and was then able to download all my photos.
Summary: I am a fan of Samsung products, generally speaking. This camera is pretty good for a point and shoot. I didn't like the limitations of the small lens, the menus, not really user friendly. But, I did love that I didn't need a proprietary cord for downloading. Universal USB cord for uploading is the way to go.
Summary: I have just purchased the camera and must share my joy to discover that THIS CAMERA WORKS WITH MY iMAC AND IPHOTO. YEAH!!! My previous 3-4 cameras would not work with the mac, then i had to mess with the SD card with only 20% success rate - A TOTAL NIGHTMARE every time. I'll revise the review later but I wanted to share in case other people had the same issues with the mac and photos.
Summary: Love, love the camera. It is soon much better than the Nicon I had earleyer. The shutter release is fast and the quality of the pictures are great. I like the options that are offered in the camera to modify Them.
Summary: what can i say but "OMG" when it comes to this camera. I just love it, i bought the purple and its so pretty. The quality of the photos and video are amazing. I have no regrets buying this camera. my money was well spent. The only cons about it is i find its alittle slow but i guess i could put it into burst mode if i need pics taken 1 right after the other. But i have no regrets having this piece of joy. im still testing the other modes but so far so good.
