Dale, reading Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Superb little camera. Nice and slim with little weight
Bad points:
Little tricky to first to navigate menus.
Sometimes too many features. But leave it on auto and away we go straight out the handbag. Can't comment on battery life between charges, not used it enough yet.

marco, shrewsbury Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This camera is some 11mm deep and the size of a credit card, BUT without effort can produce results that put most small and standard size cameras to shame. It's light weight means that it can be carried in a (buttoned!) shirt pocket hardly knowing it is there. Once you have become familiar with the many aspects of it's operation you will find it can cope with almost anything - even extreme contrast and poor illumination. 14 mps allow the image optical telephoto at x5 to be enlarged many times on the computer without noticable loss of quality. That means, whilst available in Smart Mode - I never need to use the digital zoom.

Both optical and digital image stabilization are available so forget about camera shake even at full zoom in difficult conditions.

I am difficult to please but this camera, after doing much prior research has pleased and surprised me.

It must be HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to anybody wanting high quality results.
Bad points:
As with all digital cameras the LCD screen cannot cope with direct sunlight falling in it and so hand shielding is necessary. It would be nice if it also had an optical viewfinder - but I guess that would, in view of it's very small size, be impossible to build in. ( although I doubt Samsung would ever say NEVER ! )
