disappointed after reading reviews
on 1 March 2013
I had the samsung PL20 (still for sale on amazon) but managed to drop it and it broke, came back to amazon to buy another and saw this one on offer, hey as time goes on technology gets better right ummmmmh "wrong". should have bought the PL20????? silly me!!!! There seems to be 2 fundamental flaws: A: Its ability to take pictures in low light (supposed to be its speciality) but flash wants to constantly come on, and when not used the exposure is slow and you end up with a blurry photo. B: on the PL20 you could turn on an anti-shake device, handy for when using the zoom, not on this. It is automatic and not very good, again blurry photos when using the full 5x zoom. Other than these 2 flaws everything else is very good, fantastic pics in good light, long battery life, large internal storage, simple menu system, easy transfer of photos etc: credit where credit is due.
