Advantages: Face smoothing abilities, no spots!
Disadvantages: Some modes take a while to process the photo once taken
I bought the pink version of the Samsung ES15 camera for about £60 back in 2009 and it still holds its quality now.
The look of it is quite average and it is a lot thicker than most digital cameras as it uses AA batteries but this is to your advantage! With most other cameras if you don't have your charger, you are a bit stuck, whereas with this one- anywhere in the world you can give your camera the power it needs! There is even a mode on the camera where you can tell it to understand that it is using Lithium-Ion (or rechargeable) batteries so the camera knows when to be in standby mode to preserve power.
Once you know how to utilise everything this camera offers, you really can use it to its best abilities.
The menu for this camera is idiot proof, even 9 year olds can work it. The main dial works as directional keys in the menus or in the shooting mode to adjust the flash and or a timer, there is a view key and a trash and/or effects key (when in viewing mode).
No matter what you are shooting, there is a mode for it. This camera is particularly good for rather acne-ridden teens as the "beauty mode" on it, lightens and smoothes the skin, hence reducing the appearance of spots and you can adjust the level of airbrushing on the camera too. (This was the selling point for me when I bought it!)
Other modes include "Text mode" and "Firework mode" which are self explanatory.
Using these pre-set modes however mean that if you want to continuously shoot, it is near impossible as it needs to process the image to apply the mode.
Also for the perfectionist you can adjust the ISO, the type of lighting used from daylight, halogen or tungsten lighting.
Another neat little trick is that if during the photo you didn't apply the effects offered (black and white, retro, cool, warm colour settings) you can go back into the viewing mode and add it later, genius!
This camera's one downfall is its video camera- the quality is still good and the sound is good, it is just if you zoom while shooting a video, the sound cuts out! Oh no!
However I was seriously surprised what I got out of this camera for the photography mode for the ridiculously cheap cost!
Summary: A great camera at a great price!
