Advantages: High quality images- especially of close ups, beauty retouch feature, great battery life
Disadvantages: Difficult to control settings for first time users, otherwise no other complaints
I've had this camera for a couple of years now, although it was over £100 at the time when I purchased I am aware it is available in Argos now for around £99.99. The camera is quite small, I'd say its bulkier than the slimmer camera's but it is still something you could keep in your pocket.
I'd recommend this camera to amateur photographers as it has a wide range of features you can explore and improve your skill with the camera, and when you're ready you can take some really high quality images with the samsung as it is a 13.6 megapixel camera! I've taken this camera with me on holiday, on nights out, day trips and for fun photoshoots with my friends. For self portraits I'd recommend buying a tripod which you can slot into the bottom, this keeps the camera upright and still while you pose with your family/friends if there is no one to take the picture.
You will need to buy your own SD memory card - mine has 2GB of space which holds thousands of pictures (depending on which quality images you go for, if you want higher quality images they have a bigger file size so you'll need a memory card with more space).
The controls are found on a wheel near the button on the top of the camera which takes pictures. Rotating the wheel gives you different options - my favourite is beauty shot for an automatic retouch of facial features which I regularly use when I'm doing fun photoshoots for friends. You can change the resolution of the pictures, flash can be off on or on auto and self timer function is also available. You can have a play around with colours eg. black and white, exposure and contrast etc.
All of these features become easier with usage. The battery life is great so make sure you charge your camera when its discharged until its fully charged and never leave the battery in for ages when it isn't being used. Good video quality too!
My favourite camera so far (I've had a fair few), great for my passion in close up photography produces high quality images! Oh and smile shot is a fantastic feature- smile and the picture automatically is taken!! x
Summary: Good camera to start off with for keen photographers of all ages
