Summary: good little camera. Doesn't work great at action sports. Does have a pretty decent zoom though. I use my bigger more expensive Nikon with big lens for sports. But this is good for everyday pictures. I do like that I can sync it to my phone and upload pictures to phone or ipad.
Summary: I've only had this camera for several weeks, so am still trying to learn the different settings. I was very disappointed that the full user's manual didn't come with the camera, nor any software. I contacted Samsung, who replied that they don't supply a hard copy of the manual because they have "gone green". There is a downloadable version but I don't want to have to go to my computer every time I have a question about the camera's operation.
Summary: This camera is really sharp looking with a throwback retro look. It has a very effective optical zoom (21X) and it takes very nice photos for a pocket camera. It is a great buy in order to have something in your pocket, besides your smart phone, to capture those photos that you really want to get and keep. And I mean, literally, that you can just keep it in your pocket-it is the right size and it is self closing (no lens cap).
Summary: Good looking model. I jumped right in without reading the manual and it is fairly intuitive. Similar controls and functions to my 6 yr old Lumix. it has a dedicated button for video, and I love the frame grab feature. I can use my Samsung S3 as a remote viewfinder to take group shots and still zoom and focus. it also doubles as a video baby monitor which is cool. I'm still learning, but it seems a little slow navigating between effects modes, and processing after shots.
Summary: Bought this as a gift for my wife. She loves it. I too am very pleased with it. Lots of features in there to play around and add effects to photos. The touch screen is very responsive and screen itself is bright and large. The photos are great, although I think we need more practice with the autofocus. Video is similar. The zoom is amazing. The auto-backup feature over wifi works like a charm, but it was a little hassle setting it up.
