I received this camera on January 6th, as a gift. I was thrilled. The camera took great pictures and was fairly easy to use once I played with it a while. There are several different picture settings, and each setting has more ways to fine tune your picture, which I loved. I also LOVED the face-flaw eraser setting. I take a lot of outdoor pictures and the details on leaves, trees, clouds, and sky were incredible.
Notice that I used past tense to describe all of these things.
On January 7th, I went for a hike and took my new camera with me. I was so excited! I took some great pictures and great footage.
When I got back to my car, I noticed little black spots on the LCD. I turned it off and went home, and when I turned it on again, the spots were ebbing into little black lines.
By the next day, two large lines were across the LCD. I could even see them when the camera was off. I took it back and exchanged it for another one.
That night, we went out for dinner and I took the camera with me. Within taking about 10 pictures, the same thing happened-a long, thin black line appeared across the LCD.
I fell in love with this camera and seriously considered keeping it despite the flaw, but then came to my senses when I realized that no brand new device should be doing that. I didn't exchange it again after I read customer reviews on the camera, and found that apparently this black line problem is a recurring one with this model.
So basically, if you want to take the gamble and see if you're one of the lucky ones with no LCD problems, this is a great camera. I'm of the opinion something brand new should work completely, with no flaws within the first 24 hours.

Usually, I'm a Canon man. I got this camera for my wife because she liked the dual view. And it is pretty cool, to be sure. We haven't got to use it a whole lot yet, but here's what I like so far: the camera is quick, light, inexpensive, good in low-light, and 12.2 megapixels, GOOD menus and quick access to the most important features. Did I mention it was inexpensive? I haven't used too many snap-shot digital cameras - two different Canon Powershots and now this one - so, I'm probably not the most seasoned critic. But I am kinda a gadget-geek, and I'm going to say this camera is well-deserving of the 5 stars I give it. And about how it compares to its big brothers - the other Samsung dual-view cameras - well, once again, this one is the most inexpensive. So for me, it was the way to go.

I really like this camera and have been wanting it since it was first released. I finally purchased it and I'm returning it because it's way too slow. It takes really nice pictures and the screen on the front is really a fantastic feature if you're someone that likes to take self portraits without needing a place to place the camera and use a timer. That's something I do all the time with my husband. I'm returning it because it takes a long time for the flash to fire and then recharge. We have a 5 month old so we need a faster camera to capture all her precious little smiles that happen so fast!

The camera takes good pictures, and the front screen is fun, but there's already 2 black lines across the back screen..... I don't think it should damage that easily... It doesn't affect the outcome of the photo any though. It's just a nuisance.

I bought this camera for one reason, the dual view. It takes good pictures, but nothing like an SLR. I like the dual view, but never really use it (but, it is a good, novel feature). My pictures are good, very vibrant. But, after having it 5 months (and I take good care of cameras!), it developed spots inside of the LED screen. First, it was a black line - best way to describe it is like an ink pen explosed inside it - then it became a bunch of "ink spots". It does NOT affect the pictures; however, the spots are placed so that you cannot see some of the menu choices (that's a big problem).

I called Samsung today, and got great customer service (quickly answered the phone). He took a bunch of information and told me it's under warranty and to send it back, which I will do.

If I ever see the camera again, I will be surprised. I hated spending $129. on this camera and having it break within a few months. My cameras usually last me a life time.

Other than this problem, I like the little camera. It takes good pictures. But, again, nothing to compare to an SLR. And, it has a lot of different settings, video, and good stuff like that.

UPDATE: I mailed the camera back to be repaired. Samsung repaired it very quickly, shined it up and returned it. Since receiving it back, I NEVER had that problem again. I am happy with the camera now and appreciate Samsung's quick service on repairing it. I have to admit, I was surprised at the great customer service from Samsung! I use it a lot and, again, never had that problem again since it was repaired. I upgraded the product from 3 stars to 4 stars based on Samsung's good service in standing by their product.
