I am currently still an owner of a Samsung DualView DV300F and this camera has been a fantastic purchase. It really does last, I have had this model for years and it has never let me down. This is one reliable camera. It has been with me to parties, On holiday all around the world (from road trips to Spain, to a backpacking holiday in Australia) this camera has seen it all and more importantly lasted through it all and I have never had one problem with this camera.
For people out there who aren't the great with gadgets, fear not, this is one easy to use camera! every function is easily marked out for you and there is a guide in case you are not 100%. The zoom function is brilliant it gives you an indication where the picture or video may not be at the best quality so it will keep you right when trying to find that perfect picture. The quality of the camera is brilliant, I have never had a problem with this, from photos of yourself to photos of landscape I think the quality is spot on!
What I love about this camera which will be a bonus for all you travellers out there is that it is very compact, so will fit in most bags and pockets so you never have to miss another picture opportunity.
The only disadvantage would be the memory card but if you are snap happy like myself I recommended a high GB memory card which you can buy cheap ones from Amazon or Ebay.
It is a great buy and would recommend it to anyone.
This is my new camera. I bought it about a month ago and although I haven't tried out all the features it comes with yet I have used it regularly and think it is really good and straight forward to use.
It cost me just over £100 which I think is a good price to pay. It has 16.1 mega pixels and a 4.5-22.5mm zoom.
One of my requirements when buying a camera was that it had to be something that was easy to ouse and compact so it could be in my bag without taking up lots of room. It also had to have a decent zoom and I think that this has.
This also has an LCD screen on the front of the camera which is really good, when you use it it shows the person you are taking a picture of what they are looking like. When you turn it off you can't even see that there was a screen there- it's like magic, my grandchildren love it! I must admit that I sometimes press the screen button instead of taking a photo sometimes as they are close together on the top of the camera!
This camera can connect to your social networks like Facebook. I haven't done this yet but I'm sure once I've sat down and read the instructions properly i will be able to work out how it is done. This works using WiFi. I always find it amazing how clever technology is now! I transfer photos to my computer using the wire, I am sure once I figure out the WiFi option it will be easer, however, I find the wire option straight forward enough and I didn't have to install any software or anything to be able to do so. When it is transferring photos it also charges too so I have found I've never had to plug it in to charge as the charge it gets whilst plugged into the laptop is enough!
I have used various settings on the camera such as applying certain colours like sepia mode and things and that's nice, it gives you a chance to play around with your photos a bit. You can edit them and change them once you've taken photos or you can change the mode with which you're shooting with.
Possibly my only criticism with this camera is that it sometimes focusses for a few seconds before taking a photo and this means that it may take 2 or 3 seconds before your photo is taken. Thiis may only seem like a short amount of time but seconds can be vital and you may miss what you were hoping to capture. Sometimes I have to press the button about 5 times before it takes as it seems to want to focus but then not actually take the picture. I'm not really sure why this is but it's rather frustrating.
The camera is nice and compact and it's 'easy to use. To take a photo you press the button on the top and the zoom is built onto this, you just use the side of your finger to operate it so you can hold this, zoom in and take a photo all using just one hand. It's great for that.
I think this is a great camera and I know it does so much more than what I've used it for so I'm looking forward to exploring all these other things soon.
