Advantages: Easy to use
Disadvantages: Not high spec, not designed to be though.
My girlfriend and I bought two of these cameras at Christmas time. One for my parents and one for her parents. Neither sets of parents are very savvy when it comes to technology and we thought this camera was perfect for them.
Like any piece of technology that my parents come into contact with, they need to be shown step by step how to use it. This can often be a frustrating process for me as I am the one who has to show them and it can take them a very long time to get to grips with thing. So, like any gadget I give them, I had a good play around with it to pre-empt the questions that would surely follow.
I was delighted at how quickly they pick up this camera and started using it. Apart from putting the batteries and memory card in the camera they were able to run with it straight away. It is a very basic 12 megapixel camera, it was an off and on button and a button that takes pictures, the ultimate point and shoot experience.
The camera takes a SD Card and 2 x AA batteries. Along with the 12 megapixels you also get a 5 x optical zoom. There is also a 3 inch LCD display to review those snaps.
The camera is at the low end of the market, but can be picked up for around £60, which I think is a bargain. It's manufactured by Samsung, which has a reputation in producing high quality products and I have to say I was not disappointed.
This is an excellent entry level camera that is available in a range of colours. I would recommend for use by children or adults who like their electronics to be simply and straight forward to use. If my Dad can use it, anyone can!!
Summary: Entry level point and shoot digital camera.
