      I just received the camera today, and I am totally blown away! The features are fantastic. I took the picture of the bird through a closed window on the fly and I think that the quality is amazing. I would definetly buy this product. My only con is that the manual is online only, but no big deal.

      The camera is very pretty, not too cumbersome, but is entirely too confusing to use. Too many dials, and change this and change that for even a simple picture. The instructions/preview messages on the screens can't be reviewed comprehensively in the short amount of time the information is visible on the camera screen. In order to make the most of this product, one would have to either memorize or print the entire manual and refer to it for every photo situation. Very disappointing that owner has to download the manual instead of it being included with the product. This was a gift to me, and I worry that not too far down the road I will experience the same issues other cameras have, meaning the camera will begin to "eat" batteries, slow down with response time, and the like. Sadly, Samsung and others have the exact same cameras, with exactly the same features, only brand names are different.

            Comments about Samsung WB100 16.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

            I used a 35mm SLR for years taking mostly nature and fire photos. I was looking for something better than a "point and shoot" digital. All the reviews I read of this camera were good, and I have to agree after trying it out. The SMART modes are great for routine shots or for those who like a point and shoot. The Program mode gives plenty of control over shooting features for the more advanced photographer. This camera has an excellent zoom, great scene modes, and the special effects make some pretty cool pictures. My only complaints are the speed of saving photos or processing, and the burst mode - it's a little slow. Photos at 16MP take up to 4 sec and 10MP take up to 2 sec to save to the card. This is not a problem for most of my shooting though. As long as VGA resolution is good enough for you the Motion Capture at 5 fps captures great action photos. The Continuous mode is too slow for me (approx 1.5 sec/picture at 10MP) For the novice, set it on SMART and snap away, it selects the correct Scene mode for you. For the more advanced, download the manual and spend some time playing with the settings and modes. Once you learn the features, you can do a lot. The 3D (if you can view them) and the Panorama modes are truly awesome!

                I wanted a bridge camera that had a wide variety of features for a reasonable price. I definitely got far more than I expected or paid for with this camera. There are so many features and it's fun to try them all out. My only complaint is that the camera can be slightly slow, but overall, it's absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend this camera if you're looking for a wonderfully priced bridge camera.

                        with this camera. Many complaints about not getting clear focus come from the fact that this camera can zoom farther than the human ability to hold it still. To fix that, there are three things you can do to steady the shot. 1. Put the neck strap around your neck. When in full optical zoom, push the camera outward to create tension on the strap to stabilize the shot. 2. try not to zoom past optical and into digital zoom as this degrades the quality. If the subject is still small in the view, you can crop later. 3. A faster shutter speed can catch a moving or shaky subject more clearly. The camera wont let you change the shutter speed but you can TRICK it by setting a higher ISO sensitivity like 200 or even 400 ISO. That will force the camera to shoot faster to compensate for the extra light sensitivity. One last thought, if you put your WB100 on a tripod and want to shoot in full zoom, pressing the shutter button adds shake. Set the timer for a two second delay so your hands are free of the body of the camera for a clear shot.

                          Some have problems getting clear sharp focus. Through testing I've learned that if the subject is within a certain distance when in zoom, the camera cant catch up. It also zooms out so far that any movement can blur the shot. Put the camera neck strap around your neck and push the camera outward away from you to create tension to steady the shot more. Also the cameras weight is so light that even changing your mind about composition creates movement to blur the shot. Im going to get a replacement tripod screw/bolt and push it up through a 20oz soda bottle lid so i can suspend a full soda or water bottle from the tripod hole to more than double the weight to add stability for the long shots. Looks strange but gets the shot. The strap trick along with the full water bottle will help the stabilization even more. If you want more clear focus closer than zoom then you have a lot of scenes in the "SCN" area from the mode dial on top to set. For the sun glare on the screen ive cut the ends off a pop tart box to use a a sun shield. Not many will bother but it really works on bright days.

                                    Comments about Samsung WB100 16.2 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:

                                    I bought this camera to replace a different brand of camera that I had. I made handmade gemstone jewelry and the photos come out crystal clear and the detail in the jewelry shows. There is no doubt what their piece of jewelry will look like when they get it.
