Bob, Wallsend Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I find it very portable, slips into a shirt pockets quite easily. The lcd screen is very clear, and gives a good representation of what the image will look like when printed or transferred to computer file.
Bad points:
In all fairness, I can't think of anything bad to say about this product.

Mike, Kingston upon Hull Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Large clear screen, Easy to use, comfortable camera to hold and easy to slip int pocket, similar to my last Samsung camera, battery holds the charge exceptionaly well, cannot really find any major faults.
Bad points:
selection dial at the top is too easily moved when activating shutter, charging cable/ PC connection cable has been considerably shortened since the last Samsung camera I had bought, this causes significant problems since my PC
is under my desk. Not supplying a camera case is a pain but only a minor irritation.

None that I've noticed so far.

Confirmed purchaser Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
So far simple to use particularly in auto mode .
Impressed with the zoom and the quality of pictures .
Bad points:
Very minor points .
The mode dial does move easily e.g. when in pocket , so I try and check that I still have it in the correct mode when I use the camera .
The instruction booklet that came with it is a bit basic , however as said the camera is easy to use . If you have acess to a PC you can access an adobe file that has more details.
