I had never considered getting a Samsung camera (full disclosure, I have a Galaxy Note 3 which I love) and I was almost ready to purchase another brand when I saw a pile of boxes for the camera and took a closer look. We were able to play around with a demo model and I was amazed at the features that were packed into its slim case. I've been fiddling around with them getting ready for a trip to Europe and am looking forward to being able to get some amazing photos with such a tiny footprint in my backpack. Is there anything that Samsung doesn't do?

The main feature of this device suppose to be Android operating system but it is also the biggest shortcoming. A camera with the same photo quality and some built-for-camera operating system costs a third of this price and it doesn't ask you to update app, doesn't nags with with a year old hangouts messages and has a lot of features when it comes to photography. Image compression is awful - it's not obvious on a small screen but once you zoom in or look at a big screen it looks terrible and there's no way to adjust the level of compression. Internet connection sharing over bluetooth form iOS device is not working and the only way is Wifi sharing which literally takes 10 times more energy. Display is very bright - actually too bright and when you adjust the settings on Snapseed app it looks to dark on the other devices! Dynamic range is very low - even with photo modes like "Rich tone" which is 3 images bracketing HDR composition. Third party app "HDR pro" which works great on iOS on android misses the main features, gets in the way with built in camera interface and freezes the whole system which requires a hard reset. And there is a lot of small messy android related details that interact with camera features and make the whole user experience disappointing. The only reason I'm still using it is a 21x zoom in your pocket which is great when traveling and you don't feel like taking a dSLR out of the bag and the subject is too far for an iPhone!

I LOVE IT!!!!
from Los Angeles, CA, USA
I love my Samsung camera. It is just what I was looking for. The zoom is great, pic are not grainy, I love to be able to edit right on the camera and send to my iPhone, drop box, FB, etc. It is like having a tablet too. Using the zoom, I can take pics of my daughter at cheer competitions from across the field or gymnasium and the pics and video are clear and bright. . If a Samsung smart phone is like, I'll make the switch at my next update date from iPhone to Samsung!
LOVE this camera!!
from Pittsburgh, PA, USA
I just got this camera about 2 weeks ago and I LOVE it! The photos are so clear and true...so many shooting modes to choose from! The screen is so big that viewing the shots are a pleasure! The fact that the camera is WiFi enabled is great because the photos automatically go to your Dropbox and there is no need for removable media! To top it all off - its also a computer that you can surf with, watch videos and listen to music - not to mention the apps that are available!! This is a great camera! You won't be sorry if you decide to buy!! (I forgot to mention the macro mode is exciting!! LOVE getting closeups and they are beautiful!)
Exceeded my Expectations
from Detroit, MI
I purchased this camera to take pictures of my daughter as she prepared for her prom. My mind was telling me that this camera looked nice, but would not be able to produce great pictures. But I was wrong. Pictures and videos had very vivid colors, and the zoom feature was far better than I thought it would be.
Samsung Galaxy 1&2
I initially purchased the Samsung Galaxy 1. The quality of my pictures went from o to 10 immediately. This camera along with all its features, especially the many filters is amazing so, when channel surfing one evening I saw that QVC was offering the Samsung Galaxy 2 , I wasted no time in ordering it. Now the 2 is off the charts . People constantly are inquiring about what type camera I use. Many have gone on to purchase it. Now I have one that stays in my vehicle and one when I'm on outings . Can't do without !!!!! Awesome camera !
Love It.... But
from Raleigh, NC, USA
It would be nice if this camera could accommodate a neck strap. The wrist straps are a pain because you're always afraid that you're going to hit the camera on something. You can't just "let it rest". If you don't use the wrist strap, you take a chance of dropping it. Using the touchscreen and trying to hold on for dear life can be a little irritating. Other than that, it's an excellent camera. It has great picture quality, easy to navigate between video and still pictures, and I love the voice activated picture taking feature.... smile/cheese.
Not so great
Picture are perfect ... Battery life is awful! I have charged battery to max, unsure if wifi sucks up all the power
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
THE MOST BEAUTYFULL CAMERA
If this camera had been fitted with both front and rear view, it would have been the number one on the planet, this product is just amazing and unique I am the supper man any time I carry the camera out to functions , I make people happy when I send them photos on face book at an ongoing party . Everything about this camera is unique but for the absence of the front camera I couldn't chat on face book to show off, but I love it and contemplating on buying a second one.
this product is the great and have really good features
from Boston, MA
I do not need to hire photographer, I don't regret buying this product.
Love the camera,especially the macro mode for what I shoot. The camera however works great in all modes . Love the ability to use it in manual so I control the camera out of auto modes. That is a plus for me. Buy it and you will not be disappointed!!
