Great camera for the price.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Samsung makes darn good devices and this camera is one of them. For a point and shoot camera the DV150 produces good crisp, sharp, clean pictures. It is easy to use and easy to navigate the menu. The video this camera takes is also clean and crisp. Even though it shoots 720p resolution you will not be dis appointed. As with any point and shoot camera lighting is important when using the video function. The lower the lighting the "grainier" the video will look. Also make sure you get a Class 10 card for your camera. Why you ask well it is simple, you want a card that has a fast "read/write" speed so your video and pictures will come out as good as possible. Some people may say you do not need a class 10 but they are wrong!! I use Sandisc cards myself do not buy a "no name" card I know that they are cheaper but you get what you pay for. So stick with a brand name class 10 card you will not regret it. Overall this point and shoot camera is a great buy, is it the best? no, but you will be pleased with this camera. Looking for a Vlogging camera? This camera will do the job! As mentioned before it records up to 720p and has a small LCD screen on the front to help you get into frame. Great camera at a great price.

Very good review and great point about using a better memory card! It makes a HUGE difference, most people just have no idea so I am glad you added that. I use SanDisc Extreeme III in my Kodak and it is a 6, which I have had for many years. Not sure what is in my SLR Rebel, but it is also an Extreme III. I have never had to replace either of my memory cards and have had these camera's for about 10 years.
Not all camera's will allow you to use a 10 so watch out for that. A 6 is fast, I don't believe people have to have a 10 to get the best out of their camera's, but at least a 6 or higher you are better off ;-)

good advice about the memory card. get the fastest card you can afford. i would not skimp on the price, and go with SanDisk 32GB Ultra microSDHC UHS-I Class 10 Memory Card with SD Card Adapter. it really does make a difference.
