well 2 days after i wrote this review the camera broke lol. we tried different batteries and plugging it up but it will not come on..so she called about the warranty and the guy was very helpful and told us to send it in and they would take care of it. usually companies give you the runaround but not these guys!! i give samsung 5 stars for that but it still sucks that after spending $170+ on a camera in November and not even be able to use it on Christmas
Anyone from the novice, as I am, to the pro would enjoy this camera.
I bought this so that I could easily share photos 'on the spot' through the WiFi. As a camera, it's bulky and awkward, with no touch screen or ease of settings. I find that even when I carry this camera with me, more often than not, I use my smart phone to snap and share. The quality of the photos is 'okay' at best - although I could probably tweak them better if it didn't take so long to find the right icon on the the turn knob, set, and then return the knob to the photo setting. It is lightweight plastic, and feels like it's going to break if I continue to switch back and forth. A touch screen with scrolling might make me love this camera. It's also difficult to find the correct image resolution for sharing, as several of the photos I've sent, and received from others with the same camera wouldn't open in my email, regardless what viewer I tried to use. I still get quicker better quality shots from my phone.
I will come back and update this review with more details as I have more time with the camera, but first impressions are good for the price paid (~130). It is of plasticky construction, but solid and the build quality seems good. The white body looks nice enough. No printed manual, but the manual (PDF) is on the CD and is quite detailed. You can read on your PC. Tablet, or other device or print it out if you like.
The big question for many seems to be the WiFi. I have a pretty standard wifi setup and I had no problems at all. I selected my network, chose the shared setting, entered the password (easy) and it connected right away. No need to even read the manual, just turn the dial to WiFi and you can probably figure it out if you have set up many devices before. Once this was done, I was able to easily upload images to my SkyDrive after entering my login info, again easy to do. I was also able to email photos to my email account. Transfers were quick (normal wifi transfer speeds) for the 4-6 images I tested with. If you try to transfer 500 images it's going to take awhile, probably better to just remove the SD card and use your SD card reader (or plug the camera up via USB). But for casual transfers of images it works fine. So the Wifi was easy to setup and use in my opinion and works well. USB->PC transfers were also easy and fast. And, of course, you can pop out the SD card and use your PC card reader or external USB reader as well.
Update: Also tested PC Autobackup via wifi which transfers all pictures from your camera to your PC. This is the most efficient wifi mode and also preserves the image size and quality. Many of the other modes (like SkyDrive, social media choices, compress the file size).Read more ›
Pros: Size was gr8 fits snuggly in my handbag, made of good durable material.
Built in Wi-Fi worked good when using the Mobile link + Remote viewfinder application.
Ability to connect to external Wi-Fi signal is gr8 could email pictures directly from camera and upload directly to social networks eg. FB.
18x optical zoom gr8 not d clearest shot always though.
In scene mode there are a few options to choose from to get the best quality photo.
Other added features include live panorama, split shot scary but nice might get someone in innocent trouble, picture in picture was ok would have been better if you could've use a picture from the gallery.
Video is good also but I really don't use it.
Smart mode is gr8 especially when my brain is in lazy mode.....lol.
In program mode is ok takes alot of practice to get the best quality picture.
Other items in the package was gr8 exactly what it says.
Cons: whilst the camera has some good features, sadly not all picture quality is d best or maybe I need to practice more I'm still a work in progress though.
