Advantages: portable, light weight, good picture quality, strong, very reliable, useful features, 10MP
Disadvantages: Doesn't always focus properly,
As a frequent concert goer I needed a new digital camera and it needed to be able to take great quality pictures while also fitting in my pocket. This Samsung digital camera is perfect for both these roles and is great value for money. This 10 mega pixel camera (one of only a few cameras at 10 MP at its price) produces excellent photo's. The camera has a standard flash and the optical zoom is pretty good. The buttons are well placed and easy to use, it is pretty obvious what button does what and there is nothing to complicated. What the picture doesn't show you is the digital screen on the back of camera which is pretty large which is very useful. The menu is simple to use and it is very easy to alter options like the flash or to switch to video recording. The face detection and digital image stabilisation are good additions although not crucial. The only problem I have with the camera is that it can drain batteries quite quickly, especially if you have the flash on, but then again what camera doesn't? Also sometimes the camera is unable to focus properly and can blur the image but generally it is pretty good at auto-focusing on an object. I used this camera when I went trekking in Morocco and it produced some incredible images. The pictures were well focused and the colours produced were vibrant including the different shadow effects. What is even more impressive is that I would be taking pictures of mountain ranges tens of kilometers away and the images which came from the camera were as good as some of those who had more expensive digital cameras. If you are looking for a portable camera which produces great quality pictures while being very affordable (bought mine for £60) then this is it.
Summary: Excellent value for money, you probably won't find a camera with better picture quality under £120
