Advantages: budget price, lightweight, compact, capture and playback movies, good sized LCD display
Disadvantages: 5x optical zoom good, but, only for close shots
Used frequently by me and an 8 year old child and it's surprised me how good the quality of pictures are (crisp and sharp) from this budget offering from Samsung. I wanted a simple to use and understand camera for a child and also needed to be robust which it is. It's very easy to set-up and understand. We went through the comprehensive instructions together. Great 2.7 LCD display which is very clear, very intuitive and you can very quickly grasp what you need to do in order to improve the quality of your picture or video. It's High definition, but, not full 1080p, however, for the price that's not a major show stopper.
Great for taking close shots of family, pets etc. Although 5x optical zoom it's not great if your going to a concert and are someway back from the stage. Uses a Micro SD card for memory, re-chargeable battery, 25mm wide angled lens so groups shots or scenery are no problem. Great to be able to preview any image before you take the shot to ensure you don't end up taking it again.
My daughter is forever playing back her home made movies on our tv. This is great as the grandparents, with deteriorating eyesight, can enjoy as well.
Summary: Great price point, child friendly, Ideal for the framily.
