This camera is not as good as some you can get in this price range, but it has a few very specific features that make it unique and definitely worth it if you are like me, the only photographer of an active family.I bought it almost solely because of the front LCD screen allowing me to take pictures of myself and other family members, and the Wifi Mobile App that allows me to use my cell phone as the viewfinder and picture taking remote, which allows me in even more pictures, and makes setting up posed group shots very easy.

Both of these features work well. There is another App available that allows the camera to send me pictures through Wi-Fi without having to use a computer. Two important things to know about these features is:
1)*Update* The apps are now available to everyone in both Apple and Android Appstores.But Samsung advised me they do not guarantee it to work with non-samsung phones.
2)As with all apps they can be hit and miss, and sometimes take a few tries to get connected and working. They don't come with instructions, you just have to figure them out.

I have tried fiddling with the settings myself, but since you cannot change shutter speed, only ISO and Metering, I was not pleased with any of the results. I get the best pictures on Auto-Mode, which is good news for people who don't want to have to think about settings. As long as it had decent light the pictures are always rich and sharp.
The video shot was very good too although the voices seem a bit muted.

I had heard bad thing about the battery life, but I find it a bit better that 2AA's I've used in previous cameras. The stock battery fully charged lasts me a whole family party and that's with a mix of pictures and videos.

I am not interested in Wi Fi capabilities---what I want is a good camera that performs well and is compact and easy to carry. (I have a big honker with fancy lenses, etc if I want that.) It is missing something very important: the ability to snap a photo quickly. The shutter lag is *terrible*---unless the subject is a statue and doesn't move, I miss shot after shot. Add a flash and it gets even worse. Even my old 2003 Sony Cybershot does better in this. What good are all these fancy features when such a basic one is missing?

I am about to give up on this and get something else, even though it's only 4 months old. I am going to an event tonight and can't risk missing the shots, so am taking the old Sony instead.

What you get in the Package:
(1) Lithium Ion Battery
(1) Micro USB/USB cable
(1) Outlet [connects to the USB cable so you don't need a laptop to charge your Camera]
(1) One Year Warrenty
(1) Samsung DV300F Dual View Smart Camera
(1) Software Disk that includes:
- Intelli-Studio
- PC Auto Back Up (essentially it gives your PC software to send photos wirelessly to your wi-fi enabled laptop or desktop)
- Adobe Reader
- User Manual

The Samsung DV300F is a brilliant little camera from Samsung. It's 16 megapixel resolution creates pictures with stunning details and with it's large amount of on board features offer a great camera experience for beginners and those seasoned camera pros. The interface resembles that of a smart phone. You need only swipe the little zoom knob (located on the top of the camera around the capture button) to navigate different windows. the user can swipe between several options on the camera including: Basic, Wi-Fi, Scene, Magic, and Album.

Basic's Menu (the default screen you'll see when starting it up)
------------------------------------------------------------------------|
You'll notice that there are 4 types of capture modes:
- Smart Auto (Picture)
- Smart Movie
- Program (Picture)
- Movie

The Smart functions are for those interested in getting a quick shot with the camera. The camera will auto adjust to take the perfect photo of what ever your pointing at. Smart movie does the same thing but for things your taking video of. Normal mode (Program and Movie) allows users to hand tweak settings for more personal and optimized features.

Bought for my mom who is a grandma of two. Upgrade from her Canon SD powershot. The best features for us so far are:

our Pros:
-Light weight
-thinner than Canon SD powershots
-children cartoons in front and can add music playing
-do not need to remove microSD. plug the camera into computer. Just remove the wall prong end of the charger and the same chord can be plugged into the computer.
-do not need to remove battery. Just plug in the charger into the wall and the chord into the camera.
-you can even charge the camera while it's in the provided case.
-to add more photo space, we set to 10M, which can fit 1,250 pictures with the 4G included.
-If you distance yourself enough, the flash can produce good vibrant colors in auto mode (here auto mode is called Smart mode).
-w/o flash, the colors via auto mode are pretty vibrant and accurate. Not too orange or blue, etc.
-there's is a dedicated button on top jsut to turn on the lcd in front.
-very colorful menu whose options look like iphone app icons. it's not touchscreen as far as i know. other cameras are jsut simple white text menus.

Con:
-switching from Photo-Video-Children mode is not in one menu. You have to go through tiny menu tabs that are only text. Not as intuitive, but one can get used to it. I was expecting a simpler menu or a switch that goes from photo to video at least. you need to go to the menu to go from photo to video to other modes. Seems like it's market was aimed towards teens and mothers of children.

There are many other features we don't need like wi-fi, emailing directly from the camera, tranfering photos from camera to smartphone wirelessly, panoramic merge, color magic, fun distortions, but for our use, it's perfect and great price.
