5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT, March 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 16.3MP CMOS with 21x Optical Zoom and 4.8" Touch Screen LCD (WiFi & NFC- White) (Electronics)
Can't rave enough about this camera, and neither could other people on the trip to Africa I just took. I played with some of the apps and uploaded a couple of photos to Dropbox before I left, and they worked fine. I didn't buy it for that stuff though. I was looking for a relatively small but powerful camera, and this fit the bill. I didn't try to upload anything via wifi while away because signals were horrible where I was, and the size of the files too large. Had to play around quite often to get a good night shot. In the end, the "auto" seemed to work best for that. My one and only complaint so far is that I can't figure out how to force it to flash for backlight shots, but hopefully that's just user error.

Set the camera to Program, Aperture, Shutter or Manual (PASM) to access all of the flash modes including fill flash.

Hey Richard,
Just bought this for my wife, and she is having trouble getting the camera to use the flash at all, any thoughts?
Thanks,
Ron

When in PASM mode touch the flash icon and choose one of the flash modes such as auto or fill in. See page 83 of the manual for more information.

My model (recently purchased from Costco) has a button on top to manually pop open the flash. With the flash up, it fires when the picture is taken. I'm sure yours must be a different model though.
