4.0 out of 5 stars A great little camera, 14 Jan. 2008
By 
I'm really pleased with this purcahse. The camera is really compact, easy to use comes with loads of really handy settings that make a definite improvement on a basic camera. It's definately a good camera for the price. I spent alot of time comparing similar priced models and found that even though you can find some with slightly higher megapixels (that make you think it's a fantastic deal) they lack what I would consider to be basics. The zoom is often poorer and they don't work well in low light, or have the handy shake reduction settings. Another good point with this camera is the face detection setting, I find that when I'm with a group of friends and we're taking one picture of ourselves it's much easier to make sure that we're all in the picture (otherwise we regularly chop a few heads off). The ability to charge the camera via a computer, as well as a mains socket certainly has it's advantages too. One issue I would agree with is that the instructions are very poor. It should be stated that the camera has to be fully charged before the first use, all very basic instructions mention this but these fail too. If you do purchase the camera I reccomend that you do not switch it on without giving it a few hours to charge to its maximum level. The samsung programme makes it easy to upload photos a save them, but apart from that it's pretty useless, so if you like to edit your photos, even if it's only a little bit, you'd benefit from purchasing an editing programme. Also the metal case has meant that, after many times of dropping it, there isn't a scratch on it and it's working just fine, it may be small, but it's not rediulously delicate. I bought the camera on the deal that amazon offer to get a 2gb memory card with it. I'd say that was definately a good buy, obviously the cameras internal memory is virtually useless and this offer makes the memory card considerably cheaper than buying it on the high street. I have to say I was concerned about battery life, I've always used cameras with your typical AA Ni-Mh batteries. They had a long life anyway and you could always keep a stash of them handy. But I've never had a problem with the battery in this camera, the life is really good and you could always purchase a spare if needs be. All in all I'm very pleased with the results.
