Advantages: Good picture quality, cute appearance, quite cheap
Disadvantages: Loose battery power fast, bad video quality and low sound
I've had the Samsung S1050 for around perhaps two years which I bought from Argos. Originally the camera was £200, which I got for £100 and is now reduced down to £80.
Unfortunately the camera doesn't come with a memory card, so you can't hold a lot of pictures on the camera so I would suggest you buy a memory card separate to be able to hold more pictures - it's annoying when your outside and you don't have room left.
You can get it in silver, pink and I didn't know it was available in black but the one in the picture is black. I have the pink one, it's not overly pink its a very light pink which I wasn't sure it would be when I got it.
10.1 mega pixels, 5x zoom and 3.0 large lcd
Personally I think it zooms in far too much - so much that everything at some point ends up a complete blur you've zoomed that far.
The quality of the pictures are good but when you take videos, its quite fuzzy but not that bad, sadly the volume of the microphone for videos is really low that you can't hear it at all on the computer - can on the camera, but not computer.
To take pictures is really annoying, you have to press the button and hold it down till it takes and alot
When you take the flash off the pictures go blurry for some reason so you need to change it to ASR
Personally when the flash is on I think pictures turn out great, but a of the time it takes forever and you need to keep pressing it. and even then its not that great. lot of other people with this camera don't. But if you think about it for £80 its pretty good.
Also, battery's run out really fast on this, I suggest using chargeable ones al thought not sure how long they would last as I use normal ones, but they run out really quickly which irritates me.
You get a cable with it to connect the camera to the computer, sadly the camera needs to be on using even more battery power. Unless you buy a box for the memory card to go into and that will connect memory card to computer.
So for the price it's a good camera, picture quality isn't bad, video quality isn't very good and battery power is quite bad.
But if you just want a camera for fun with friends or you don't have much money then buy it :).
Summary: Good for the price
