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?

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.

Comments about Samsung GALAXY 2 16.3 Megapixel Black Digital Camera:
I am so impressed with how much this camera can do--with all the different camera functions and modes, instantly uploading them to the internet, checking email/facebook/etc. I am having fun learning and using the camera every time. I love the touch screen and the size of the screen. Easy to use format.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

galaxy 2 easy
good looking , compact enough to take every where. I am not great with a camera, but I get great results with this baby. It is simple to use. Pictures are sharp. haven't tried all the modes as of yet, the ones I have tried did all I expected. then the bonus of all the other apps. comes into play. Its really a great camera with a tablet attached. get one you won't be disappointed.

Love this product is a great camera high quality the picture love this camera
LOVE this Camera!
from Minneapolis, MN, USA
This camera is so easy to use. The functionality is outstanding. It has endless photo setting options that explain what each setting is. The quality of the pictures and the videos is sharp. Uploading couldn't be any easier. Just touch where you want to send them and as long as you are on WiFi you're good to go. I really do love this camera. It's small enough yet full of power and has a nice feel. It's easily kept in a purse. I always bring it with me so that I won't ever wish I would have had my camera with me.
Great Camera! Great Features
from Salt Lake City, UT, USA
I have only owned this camera for 1 month but I am very impressed with it. It has all of the modes PSMA and in the SMA modes you can see the effects on the screen as you make the adjustments. It also has plenty of special modes as well. It has a large bright HD screen that is excellent for viewing you pictures and it runs Android so you can email or attach to a text your pictures. It has a 21X zoom that is great for a travel camera. It is a little large and heavy for carrying around in your pocket but I think that this is a good trade-off for the great features.
I love this camera.
I love almost everything about this camera so far. My favorite features are the NFC, uploading straight to Facebook, and having all the pictures automatically backed up to dropbox. My only complaint so far is that when pictures are cropped on anything but 16 MP they become pixelated. The zoom works great so just make sure you zoom in on what you want and you shouldn't really have a problem.

Just what I was looking for. I don't have a smart phone, so this allows me to post photos easily and send to family/friends. Takes excellent photos both indoor and out. Very fast shudder speed.
So-so. Great concept but a bit quirky
I wouldn't have purchased this product but I received it as a gift from my wife. The operating system is Android which is a little less intuitive than, say, iOS. Settings are scattered about, not all are found in the Settings menu. It's best feature is it's compact size for a zoom camera and the ability to email or dropbox photos when you are connected to Wifi. Photos are good except at high zoom.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
