Takes great pictures...not so sure about the touchscreen idea
4 December 2013
Summary: This is certainly a different experience to use than most cameras. A touch screen camera....seems like a cool idea.....but...The touch based menus take some getting used to. Trying to scroll can be a challenge, if not done just right. Takes some practice (And clean fingers). Screen will need to be kept clean or it will affect the touch sensitivity. I still find it easier, faster and more natural and safer to have physical buttons right at my thumb to use.
Summary: My first digital camera was a Nikon, and after using it for a while, and not liking it, I started having some ideas what features I would like to have in my next one. This Samsung is like I design it and it even surpass what I ever expected in a camera for myself. And $115 was the icing on the top of the cake!
Summary: Don't be put off by bad reviews. Any camera can be a lemon, but mine has worked perfectly and was well under half price, so lots of camera for cheap. The 21mm wide angle is really handy creatively, or just for cramming in lots of people or other subject matter, and the 12x zoom covers a lot of range. The touch screen is intuitive and amazingly sharp (1,152,000 dots, the highest resolution around, and it's 3.5" so it's huge!
Summary: I send my camera for repair 2 times because the pictures are very white; the quality of the pictures is unacceptable. The Samsung tech said Camera is in factory standard which means no problem found on the unit, this is a Lemon camera, don't buy it!! I'm thinking to return this camera if it's possible .
Summary: After writing the below review, with one star rate, and sending it for publishing I was amazed that Amazon published it, but then I got a phone call from Samsung, "Tier 2 SUPPORT" and she was helpful at a level of help that had me deleting registry keys. I would never to that, it solved the problem. BUT after all that help and time, she helped me try out the Inteli-Suite software and it is lousy. I could not do anything worthwhile.
Summary: This is a VERY USER FRIENDLY CAMERA, it had the easiest set-up ever! the software is in the camera, just plug it in and it auto-loads! The touch screen is very easy to learn and the shots I take for Ebay and Amazon are great! Love it so far!
