Two things have happened lately to put a damper on that fun: 1) whereas previously I was able to stand right at the foot of the stage, in recent years the concert promoters have hit on the idea of placing a VIP seating area in front of the stage and charge for up-font seating at what is supposed to be a 'free' event. 2) Security staff have become more & more oppressive about using "professional cameras with detachable lenses".
That said, I went shopping for a compact, reasonably priced digital camera with the best zoom rating for the money. The Samsung was the ONLY one of the 20 or so compact cameras with a 10x optical zoom, the rest being between 3x to 5x. The price was right too... around $150 on sale.
After familiarizing myself briefly with the manual, I took it out to the show. My usual 'spot' about 50-60 ft from the stage and dead center.
The 10X optical zoom is great, but the camera ALSO has a 20x "Intelli Zoom" which practically brought me right up to the front of the stage again. After looking at the photos on my computer later, It looked like there was no appreciable loss of quality (or graininess) in the photos. I have not yet used the advertized ("up tp 50x digital zoom feature yet).
I shot most of the day using the camera's automatic setting where it selects the best setting for the situation. I also had the photo size set to "5m - 2592x1944", and the quality set to "fine".Read more ›
Pros: I tore open the package and was excited to finally have it in my hand. It takes high quality pictures. The video recording feature is one of the best i've seen for a camera in this price range and the speed is faster than my previous camera. Its a pretty decent camera for your buck.
Cons: Samsung has decided to not go with the traditional and larger SDHC memory card but instead, the micro sd card is used in this one. I had one from another camera that I had planned to swap it from but when I opened the battery door i was surprised to see a tiny hole there instead of a regular sized one. Now I have to do something else with the SD card. Make sure that you know this before you purchase.
1. Cost of the camera was excellent for a camera with a 10x optical zoom.
2. Size of the camrea with an optical zoom.
3. Light and compact.
4. Simple to use straight out of the box.
5. A lot of options for the casual user to the experienced photographer.
6. Truly takes great pictures and videos.
7. Very good battery life.
1. Not a fan of the microSD card, but it didn't hinder my purchase.
As I said, the camera was purchased as I went on a trip to Prague, Czech Republic. I was told the city was absolutely stunning and it is just that, beautiful. I didn't want to be wishing for better pictures after traveling that distance for what could be a once in a lifetime trip. This camera did not let me down.
I had the fortune of comparing the camera to several models in the store and it truly was the leader for the price. The optical zoom was really the key to me making the purchase. The more glass for the zoom the better the picture will be.
Now, I know that there are two reviews of the camera that rate 1 star and let me give my opinion on those reviews.
1. As for the microSD card, that really doesn't make the camera great, good or bad. Yeah, the card is small and you'll need an adapter for the small card, but most come with an adapter anyway. Again, that't not changing how good of a picture or video the camera takes.
