5.0 out of 5 stars Genius of a Camera, 30 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's one of those Eureka moments when some wisecrack at Samsung came up with a brilliant idea of putting a second screen in the front of the camera - utter genius! Good quality feel and build, pictures are quite bland compared to my old IXUS - but who cares? I've got my two Nikon DX bodies - a D300 and a D60 - in my disposal if I wanted to shoot some serious stuff.

This is the camera to bring when you're out with your mates, on your holiday, on those social gathering when you wanted to get close and personal with someone else.

I used to have a digital Canon IXUS four years ago - took it to Wimbledon, and on my way back to the car park - I managed to bumped into one of my tennis heroes - whoelse than Rafael Nadal - walking on his way out after a match, on his own and there were only three people around the area where he was walking. Took my Canon out from the bag and Raffa obliged to have a picture with me in a split of a second. So holding my prized Canon, I nervosuly aimed the lens to us hoping to show it off to my mates - and you guessed it right - I was out of the frame and only Rafa's shoulder appeared on the camera. Gutted! If only Samsung came out with this idea ages ago - I could have my once-in-a-lifetime moment perfectly framed, if not perfectly exposed.

A five-star rating for Samsung for that genius idea!

Word of warning : This camera takes a MicroSD card, so don't be fooled if Amazon sells you a SD card as a package. Read the whole product description, it'll takes 8GB MicroSD card, so I don't know what seems to be the problem with others.

Another lesson you probably learnt was wider angle lenses :D.
