The camera is very slow and the shutter speed is even worse.

First off I gave it a 4 stars because it doesn't come with a rechargeable battery, which stinks, my battery is already dead.

This camera really is worth it. It is light, attractive, and easy to use for beginners like me. Within a few minutes I had everything set up and was already taking pictures. The pictures are great quality, and it was simple to upload them to the computer. However, within an hour the camera wouldn't turn on anymore, and it was strange because I wasn't using it for that full hour, rather on and off. I called up Samsung and they said that I needed a new battery, which is absurd because it only lasted an hour! This is definitely ridiculous, so now I need to look into buying a rechargeable battery. All in all, you should really take into consideration purchasing this product, but beware because it's a power sucker.

I bought this camera offline but was about to return it until I saw the reviews re the battery life. Amazon saved me a major headache trying to return what I thought was a broken camera. Instead I'm just going to buy the rechargeable battery FROM AMAZON. You just can't beat the power of social networking!

Camera is great bang for the buck. Try to find another 5 MP camera in the same price range and you won't see much. This is a great entry level digicam!

i bought this camera because i was told that for a 'first timer' this is one to have. the quality of pictures if you zoom is horrible. its unbelievably slow, you tend to miss the shot or people get tired of waiting. and if you dont have the rechargeable battery, its impossible to find the disposable version. save up your money, buy one that will give you the quality that you really want. big time thumbs down.

I also bought this camera at a local department store except on clearance...for 34.00 I thought it must be a flop..no it is excellent and by the time i got the rechargable batteries at the clearance price of the camera i am still well under 80.00 for the camera and batteries.

I bought this camera 8 months ago when my Kodak EasyShare died three days after my first child was born. For $100 I figured I couldn't really go wrong. Oh, but was I was ever.

Others have mentioned the battery issue. The Duracell it comes with died in a matter of four hours. I had two options, scour my hometown for the $20 replacement or drop $60 on a rechargable.

At first it seemed like a great product, sleek design, tiny enough to slide into a jeans pocket, huge screen... I was in camera heaven until I really began to notice how the photos were turning out. The color/lighting balance on this little monstrosity is lacking at best. It hates indoor photos with a seething passion (regardless of how I set the different functions and sensitivities) and the only way you're going to get that perfect shot is if you have unyielding patience and TONS of bright, perfect lighting.

Having years and years of both traditional and digital photography experience, I can tell you with utmost assuredness that I wasn't doing anything wrong (that I could tell.)

The camera is very slow and the shutter speed is even worse. Don't for a moment expect to be able to take a crisp photo with the flash off. I've had endless frustration with this camera's quality and was especially shocked to realize my cheap Kodak was amazing comparatively.

Today, nine months after purchase, the focus died. Now the camera turns on, but when you attempt to depress the shutter to bring your image into focus, it just makes a horrible grinding noise. The mechanism is obviously bust, but I can't say I'm disappointed. It gives me an excuse to buy myself a nice new one... Maybe another Kodak, I'm thinking ;)
