~~ Introduction ~~ This seemed like quite a good bargain buy at ú80 in a Comet special offer reduced from ú150. The camera was purchased just before Christmas 2007. I was a bit weary about buying a Samsung camera as this company is not a traditional player in the photographic market, however the camera did seem to exude quality in terms of body and lens. It came with some impressive specifications and lots of useful features such as 5x optical and 5x digital zoom, 8.2MP resolution and a large bright crystal clear 2.5" LCD screen for viewing and capturing shots. The photo quality has generally been excellent both in terms of digital display and when printed out. ... Read the complete review

We've had this camera for a few years now. It was purchased just around Christmas 2007 and was the first time we'd ever bought a Samsung camera - not the most traditional photographic manufacturer. Many people will be buying similar cameras this festive season and I am really writing this review as a kind of warning to prospective camera buyers, so I'm not going to go into too much spec detail - this particular model would now only be available second-hand and I would strongly advise against buying one. In my opinion consumers are offered a poor choice in the compact digital camera market these days. Yes, there seem to billions of different cameras to choose ... Read the complete review

At first glance this camera looked like a great bargain at ú79.99 however I wish I had taken the time to read peoples reviews before I bought it. Ive had it for nearly 2 years and so far it has been sent back to Samsung 3 times. The 8.2 mega pixel with 5 times optical zoom sounded great but Ive found that when you use the zoom the picture quality becomes very poor. It takes approx 2-3 seconds for the camera to take the picture after you press the button, which can be very frustrating when you are trying to capture the moment! The battery life is extremely poor, I would recommend taking a spare couple of batterries with you even if you have just put some new ... Read the complete review

The spec of this camera looked pretty good when I purchased this camera. However it soon became apparent that there is a big flaw. The batteries run out SO quickly. The camera is now just over a year old and I'm looking to replace it as this problem is very irritating. There are a range of shooting modes, including video, and when the camera was at it's newest these functions worked really well. This camera is good for a holidays snaps, or pictures of the family but not for anything more. I would not recommend purchasing it as the battery life issue seems to get worse (not sure if this is a fault with the camera or if it just with the one I have). ... Read the complete review
