This review is from: Samsung DV150F Dual-View 16.2 MP Smart Camera with Built-in Wi-Fi - Black Deluxe Bundle With 8 GB Memory Card, Card Reader, Deluxe Carrying Case, Mini Tripod, Lens Cleaning Kit. (Electronics)
I was excited to get my camera and play with the plethora of functions and filters this super compact holds. there is definitely no shortage of things to learn with this camera. It is very lightweight and feels thin like if you drop it--that's gonna be it, it's over after that. Both the front and back LCD screens come in crystal clear with good color. I just wish it was touch screen rather than have to play with the tiny control pad and microscopic buttons it offers. I got to about picture #20 when the zoom/lens got stuck halfway out and open and wouldn't retract or fully extend. It was jammed!! I was lucky I had registered it online first thing because samsung makes it no easy task to make the exception of repairing it. And while troubleshooting a remedy I was disappointed to find several other "expected" symptoms and issues with this camera . Hopefully this will be the only problem this camera brings. As for the extras this bundle comes with I'm really not impressed. The camera case is oversized, generic, and very cheap material that is very ugly and almost embarrassing to put my camera in and take it in public. The tripod might as well be made of flexy staws because it can barely handle the 3.6oz camera without tipping or moving. Highly unstable. I haven't even opened the lens cleaning kit so I cannot comment on that. But the camera's wide variety of functions and ease of use still makes it worth it to me to hang on to. It's very user friendly and is definitely a "smart"camera. Being that the camera has been in repair longer than it has been in my possession I give it 3*.
