Wow.. this is an amazing camera! I call this a "Smart-Camera" since it has so many functions besides the camera itself. Basically its like having a Galaxy Phone-- without the Phone or cell coverage. However if you have wifi.. this is amazing, it basically runs everything that all androids run, so yes you can shoot and share INSTANTLY! Instagram? No problem! Face Books, Pinterest Google+ or email? yep! So yeah.. basically on the software side it has it all going on! On the camera side.. it's a really nice powerful camera! The zoom is OPTICAL, so what you see is what's there, no grainy guesswork digital zooms. There is a plethora of modes ( Macro, sports, fireworks, 3 shades, multiple shots and so on..) or you can tweak them after you shoot with the built in editor ( or download your favorite ) I have used this for numerous nature shots and food shots ( there is a mode for FOOD Pictures too!) and they all came out wonderful! If I HAD to nitpick.. I don't like the flash, it is not auto, (you need to press a button to release it) , and when you do it pops out, but the mount it's on *looks* fragile so there is that. Also the internal memory isn't too large, so you will need to get a micro card. Finally the touch screen can be a bit too sensitive at times. But like I said those are minor minor things, I just want to touch all the bases, this is a GREAT camera! It's is easily the best mid-range camera I own, it may not be a DSLR, but it's pretty close! ***** Jim

Short version - if you are taking indoor shots of pets or kids then this camera is NOT for you. Long version. I figure there are 3 levels of cameras - cell phones are the worst - pocket point and shoot cameras are next and are pretty good - DSL cameras the best. I figured this camera would combine the best of cameras - being upload to facebook, napchat, instagram - and the best of the pocket point and shoot cameras. I have a samsung Galaxy s5 - which really like - but it takes terrible indoor shots. It just can't get a fast enough shutter speed to get a clear picture with a moving subject. I was hoping this camera would do better. It doesn't. Not even a little bit. Shutter speed indoors is 1/8 of a second which is just terrible and results in blurred subjects every time. I'm really familiar with cameras and have a photography blog so I'm not scared of messing with the setting to get a better picture. I tried everything - this just doesn't have it.

very good for the price

Comments about Samsung GALAXY 2 16.3 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:
Easy to use , great pics , fast learning curve. Love the larger screen , but wish the entire camera was just a bit smaller Sometime hare to use in direct sunlight , but true for all such cameras that use just a screen to frame pictures
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I haven't had a lot of time just to play with the camera. What I have done is get it all set up and just go through all the options and modes etc. I think it'll be a great camera, especially with the 21x zoom. I have a Samsung phone so I didn't need a lot of instruction. I'm looking forward to using this camera.
Galaxi Camera 2 - A Major step forward
from Raleigh, NC, USA
The Camera 2 features has great features. We like especially the capability to pass photos in near real-time to a computer and to other devices. This will allow family out of the local area to see photos and videos almost a quickly as we take them. The camera is easy to use with many features immediately with minimal experience.
A Great Camera
Finally found something that I can carry around that takes great pics!
from Argyle, TX
No complaints, wish it had a neck strap so I drop it.
This produce is smarter than me.
from San Diego, CA
I am still learning how to take advantage of all of the features. My ratings will probably improve as I get more accustom to the camera.
I love this camera. I've only had it a couple of months but it works great so far.
Love this camera
I purchased this camera because I LOVE my galaxy 4. But I have to say this camera is all that and more. I am a photographer and I wanted to see how this preformed in comparison to my "big" camera. I can hardly tell the difference. I have blown pics up to 11x14 and the detail is amazing. Did close ups and the definition is high quality. There are presets on here for easy change in lighting. Also there is a "beauty preset" that you can edit on. We had more fun with this then anything. Lastly this camera is just like a phone or a tablet Wifi ready, touch screen. Easy to download pictures to social media or email right from your camera. Love this camera.
Love how this camera handles!
from California, USA
Bought this camera to replace one I lost! Wanted professional work without all the bulk! I love how this camera handles and the results I get with it! Very satisfied!
Best feature set on a point and shoot I've ever seen.
from Aptos, Ca
I bought this camera because it looked cool and the early reviews I read were promising. But now that I've had it for 3-4 months I've fallen in love with it. I can do everything I do on my phone in the camera. It takes amazing pictures. The zoom is crisp and beautiful. I was considering buying an slr but have no need for it now! Hands down, the best camera I've ever owned.
