Big waste of my money

Anonymous, Amazon
24 June 2010
  • Summary: I was really disappointed with this camera. I wish I had returned it. I went and bought a new (and cheaper) Nikon which I use instead. Here were my problems with it: Once you push the button to take a picture, it takes a couple seconds to take it. This is a dealbreaker for me with a camera. The five-year-old camera that I was replacing took pictures immediately. The pictures have different dimensions than most cameras.

  • Pros: Dual screen, takes good pictures, Compact.
  • Cons: Charging cord short. charge battery in camera. Zoom gets stuck & freezes & Can Not zoom back out. Battery life is short. Not easy friendly. Don't waste your money on this camera. Too many problems. Also leaves finger prints all over on black plast

Not reliable

Strike Z "Strike Z", Amazon
21 May 2010
  • Summary: We purchased this camera for our daughter. In the last five months it has been returned to Samsung three times. Each time it takes about a month to send in, get it checked and returned. The first time the back screen stopped working, the second time the from screen stopped working. The last time the lens would not detract nor the camera come on. They claimed it had physical damage, they charged us $90 for the repair.

After 10 months of use I regret purchasing it!

  • Summary: I'm updating my initial review from March. I've been using this camera for 10 months now and I really have begun to hate it. I regret purchasing it and I'm considering selling it. I read a lot of reviews before I bought it and thought I was making a good decision but not anymore. So far any attempts at using the "features" of the camera have caused more problems then they're worth.

Poor quality

DNodoz, Amazon

  • Summary: Purchased this as a gift for my daughter. The lenses locked-up half-way open the first day she put it to use at her birthday party. Very disappointing quality. I have sent it off to the manufacturer but have not received the repaired or replacement yet.

Picture quality is disappointing..

Milla_, Amazon

  • Summary: Well, yes, its all simple and easy to use but I can't say that I get perfect picture quality with this camera (if consider that this is 12mp). I wouldn't have noticed and would have thought its normal as I am not a big photoshooting professional but when on holidays with my friend I have just compared my photos and the photos from his Canon (or Nikon - can't remember brand for sure - but also in a range £120-150) and the difference was unbelievably HUGE!

Boa mas com muitas limitações de Software

JOSÉ PETRI, MercadoLibre
12 March 2010
  • Summary: É uma ótima câmera para quem esta começando e nunca teve uma câmera Sony semi profissional como a W1 (modelo antigo) ou qualquer outro modelo. Ela tem um ótimo custo beneficio e tem recursos interessantes, mas infelizmente o software priva toda sua capacidade e potencial, poderia ter sem nenhum problema um modo manual para controlar a velocidade dos obturador, exposição, iso entre outros.
  • Pros: Ótima experiencia de interatividade com menu, touch, vibração e sensor de movimento., Recursos interessantes como rostos favotiros, detector de sorrisos, detector de cena., Filma em ótima qualidade, Tem dois LCDs
  • Cons: Não possui um modo manual com controle total da camera, ao contrario da sony, o modo manual é limitado e não possui opções de regular o obturador ou intensidade do flash., Ao habilitar uma opção ou modo de foto geralmente desabilita ou impede a utilização de outro recurso., Baixa velocidade para processar a foto e ficar pronta para o proximo retrato., Cenas borradas, recursos para evitar vibração da câmera são ruins e velocidade e sensibilidade péssimos., Bateria dura...
