Excerpt: Samsung have really managed to raise the bar for themselves as far as build quality and usability goes. The WB600 feels solid and ready-to-go. The Schneider-Kreuznach is nothing short of exemplary: a sheer joy to use in good light. It is only hindered by the capability of the sensor, a most common design. The menu seems a bit loaded at times with features and shooting modes over lapping; though this is an advantage for beginners, the market this camera aims at.
Excerpt: I bought this camera as a compact all rounder. The 24mm at wide end especially appealed to me. I liked the way the camera handled and it has a lot of neat features. Image quality, however, was another story. Even at ISO 80 I was seeing a lot of shadow noise, detail smearing from noise reduction, and compression artefacts. I doubt if I could even pull a decent 8x10 print out of those files.
Excerpt: I Love this one !! Great Range.. Good color balance, sharp image quality and tons of function. A great grab-to-go camera that replacing my Canon 500D. Problems: I wished that flash can be a little strong ....
Excerpt: Thankful for Costco's return policy, because I didn't like this camera at all. Confusing menu system. VERY noisy optical zoom when shooting a movie with results in constant noise and clicks on recording. (Panasonic and Sony's are much, much quieter). I think it's way too expensive for the quality. Yes the specs are very nice, but the end results disappointed. I think comparable Panasonic and the new Sony zooms are a much better value.
