Samsung have created this handy, compact digital camera with people like me (and you??) in mind. I wanted a point and shoot camera, I wasn't bothered about all the fancy stuff like optical zooms and pixels and just wanted a non complicated device. this does the job. There are settings you can play about with on there such as scene changers (to deal with bright light, night time, sport/ action etc) and the video, although not exactly high definition, is good enough for capturing those little moments when you're out and about. The camera itself is available in silver or black, takes a good clear photo and cost me £70 7 years ago. Although it's been dropped, stood on, taken to the beach etc, it has survived well and still takes a better photo than my friend's Nikon. the only downside is the delay between pressing the button and it taking the photo - common with some digital cameras. a great camera for first timers who just want simplicity. Battery length is pretty good and a full charge will see you through hundreds of photos plus some time reviewing them on the small, lcd screen.
My work use this camera so it has been used for various things, taking pictures of freight, our security identity tags and of course the work nights out.
It's a very nice camera, although a bit on the chunky side, girls beware a bit bulky in your handbag.
The casing is made from stylish aluminium, which is hard wearing and durable.
It has a good range of exposure controls, including full auto, full manual, and 11 scene modes. has a fantastic 3x optical zoom lens which serves my purpose to use it well, seven mega pixels and 2in LCD monitor which makes it clear to see each picture you can also zoom in and navigate
around to take a closer look at this picture.
It starts up in about two seconds, which is quicker than some cameras I've used and takes shots in about 2 seconds it's instant booting allows you to take pictures instantly the moment the camera is turned on making it hard to miss those all important moments. The high-speed shot-to-shot feature allows continuous high-speed picture taking. The shutter speed however is a little bit slow.
The quality of the pictures are very good, they are Sharpe and clear, although I found the video quality to be a bit poorer than expected the menu system is very straight forward and so simple to understand for all people no matter how advanced you are with cameras.
It comes with a battery, battery charger and so far has never let us down, it's taking easily 200-250 pictures on a night out as I am snap happy
Overall I would recommend this camera to an individual, family or a company.
