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.

Best camera ever
from Charleston SC
I bought this camera before a trip to Maui Hawaii and I am so glad I did. It is easy to use, very compact and takes excellent photos. Worth every penny I spent!! I love the smart features - being able to adjust the settings, I was able to get some amazing sunset pics. Amazingly clear photos of everything! If you want a camera that does it all - get this one!
Good feature but bad workmanship
This product have many great android features. Camera pictures quality is not that great. It was slow so pictures came out blurry. The workmanship was bad. The adhesive on the flash fell off when I took the camera out of the box.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Houston TX
until this time I can say that is one of the best cameras of our generation .... its sleek and stylish design and its resolution and its texture allows us to take the best pictures we could imagine not only scenic but also both personal .. .. I think is one of the best inventions of Samsung :)
Smarter than me
from Tampa Bay, Florida, USA
This camera is so much more than what I expected! I love the weight as it offsets the tremor in my hands. I'm still getting used to all the features, but my clients that depend on clear picyures have already noticed the difference. I have to time and date stamp my work and it is very easy to read the stamp, as opposed to the dozens of other cameras I have used over the years. I'm still finding out things I can do with this device. Thanks Samsung! If only I could find a form fitting silicone case for protection, life would be perfect.

Excellent Camera- Dropbox and Android are Strengths
from Long Island, New York, USA
This camera works really well. The photos that it takes have been excellent- indoors, outdoors, with and without the flash. The videos come out really good too. It takes a 64 gig micro sd card, giving it tons of storage. The fact that it includes 50 gig of storage on dropbox is great. Unfortunately, it is just for one year. I have the camera set to automatically upload everything to dropbox, so all photos and videos automatically appear on my computer. The camera uses the Android operating system, similar to that on many phones. If you are familiar with this OS, it will help. If you are new to Android, you might not use this major feature that much, or you might have to learn a bit about how to use it. I don't use many of the included apps or those that can be downloaded (music player, facebook, web, etc.). I use apps extensively on my phone, and I don't need most of them here. Their availability might be a great plus for some folks. I have to re-emphasize that the dropbox feature is invaluable. You can also email photos from the phone, post to facebook and twitter, etc. You can Bluetooth photos to other phones or to tablets or computers. It also has NFC. The display is large, bright, and crisp. The pop-up flash is a little flimsy, but not a problem if you are careful with it. The camera has many, many special settings- burst mode, panorama, best face, timer, etc. These are great. Thankfully, you can set the camera to show you a smaller menu of just the ones you will use most often. It also has a manual mode, with settings that experts will like. Most of the time, I use auto mode, and it does just fine. The battery lasts a long time. The charging cable is too short, but I just use the standard one from my phone. The zoom is 21x, optical. The camera has 16 megapixels. Photos come out great, even when cropped or enlarged. This is an excellent camera, especially if you use dropbox or want access to the apps.
The Samsung GALAXY camera really is the next big thing
Samsung has lived up to its name yet again with the GALAXY camera 2. The camera is jam packed with awesome features. Tons of settings for capturing brilliant photos. Vivid, crystal clear images, 20x zoom, sleek design, large hi-def touchscreen. It also has the functionality and capabilities of a tablet to access your favorite apps and social media outlets. You can instantly edit and upload photos anywhere right from your camera. I am also in love with the slo-mo video recording setting. It really is a top notch product and well worth the buy.
Mighty camera in a pretty white package
from Lodi, CA, USA
I bought this camera two weeks ago and I am really enjoying it. I have a lot to learn but it is a very versatile camera with a great zoom. I really enjoy the WiFi feature and being able to upload pictures immediately. I would recommend this Samsung camera to anyone that wanted a versatile point and shoot with a great zoom and WiFi capabilities.
from Tucson, AZ, USA
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.

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.
