Summary: The camera is great, however I was attracted to this vendor because of the added accessories. The camera case is too small and has vivatar on the front although I purchased a Samsung. I could live with the incorrect logo if the camera would fit in the case. the package containing the lens cleaner, camera stand, sd card case etc.. was full of moldy soggy items because the cleaner fluid had leaked. Very frustrating.

Summary: I TOOK THIS ON VACATION, TOOK A HANDFUL OF PHOTOS AND THE SHUTTER QUIT OPENING. SELLER SENT ME A RETURN LABEL; I RETURNED IT; BUT NO CREDIT WAS MADE TO MY ACCOUNT. FOLLOWED UP AGAIN WITH SELLER AND THEY SAID THEY DIDN'T TAKE RETURNS AFTER 30 DAYS. THEY DID NOT SEND ME THE CAMERA BACK...SO I COULD AT LEAST GET IT FIXED. THEY JUST TOOK MY MONEY AND KEPT THE CAMERA - WHICH WAS THE WORST CAMERA I HAVE EVER OWNED. I DONT' THINK I EVEN WENT THROUGH THREE BATTERY CYCLES.
Summary: I was given this camera for Christmas, and for the 30 days that it actually worked I liked it. But a month into owning it, the zoom failed to retract. I contacted Samsung customer support, and after much ado, they gave me a ticket number with info on sending it in for repairs. Well the shipping label link didn't work, and Samsung couldn't figure it out, so I ended up shipping it myself, insured, and tracking number---So now I am an additional $25.00 into sending in a...
Excerpt: Nice feature camera, zoom, wifi, panoramic etc. Problems: problem with location of the flash, Be careful to hold the camera with your middle finger free from the flash, otherwise you'll get a shadow on the lower right of the picture
Summary: Currently in Afghanistan, ordered this camera for my wife for Christmas so she could send me pictures. On her initial use of the product the zoom button would not retract the lens. Not wanting a product with a problem she called Samsung several times constantly placed on hold in excess of an hour only to be rerouted to different places regarding customer service.
Summary: I bought this camera because it had similar specs to my old camera but a ton of more features. I really liked everything this camera had to offer as far as picture effects but the first day I used it it started to freeze on me. I had known this was an issue with this camera because I saw it as in issue on other reviews.
Summary: It was great when I first got it, but I only got to use it for a little over a week.. I took my camera home for winter break and I realized the screen was black, but I thought it was because maybe it was low on battery but the screen was still black. I looked up somewhere to take out the memory card and fully charge it to see if maybe something was wrong with the memory card, but after charging it didn't turn on AT ALL!!!
Summary: My wife wanted a new camera for Christmas as we were falling into the rut of using our iPhones for pictures and sacraficing quality for convenience. Hesitant to buy another camera when the market is changing so rapidly, I did a search to see what the latest features were on cameras that could make our purchase more future-proof.
