I'd done my research prior to buying this camera. About 80% of the reviews I'd read were positive, the rest either negative or neutral. I decided to go ahead and buy it because A. the good reviews had very good things to say about this camera and B. I could always return it. I'm guessing that the people who gave negative reviews simply didn't take the time to learn the camera (which doesn't take very long) or they were expecting way too much. This camera has taken some amazing pictures. Even without the anti-shake feature on, I'm able to take pics that aren't blurry. The camera is fast, taking about a second to be able to take another picture. The night feature works great, not every pic is washed out with the flash being too bright, like on other cameras. Macro mode is great, I'm able to see the individual specks of dust. The camera was also very easy to learn to use. I would definitely recommend this camera, great value for the price.

So far so good, no complaints, I have only used it for 1 week. Walmart had the best price, with free delivery to my store.

I love everything about this camera. The one that I bought came with a clear scratch-proof cover that works great, as I have dropped this camera multiple times. I also love that the battery has a "lock" feature that keeps the battery in place. In addition, it has a multiple-delete function that lets you select which photos you want to delete. My favorite feature would have to be the motion capture. It's like taking a video, except with photos. However, I wish you could take unlimited shots, instead of 5 or 6. One bad thing that happened to me a few times was when I took about a 5 minute video, the battery was practically dead even though I had charged the camera previously. Also, when taking a video, the sound will cut out when you zoom in or out. So overall, this camera is great for people that mostly want to take photos, but I would keep your charger/extra battery handy if you want to take a few videos.

I ordered this camera when my Kodaks wore out. It takes great pics and video. The only thing is downloading to the puter. I guess I'm just used to the Kodak. Great camera tho.

I really like this camera~I got it for christmas. It's REALLY good at taking pictures, the color is bright & accurate & the pictures are really nice quality [but I have shaky hands so sometimes the pictures don't turn out too well] I love how there are so many settings & things you can change on it~ The video is OK. The quality can only reach up to 640X480, so the quality is fine & while I watch the video I notice that the lighting changes a lot-and it's kinda noticable! I disliked the fact that I always had to go to the menu to fix the settings & volume.... Alltogether, this camera is GREAT for pictures :) Ecspecially if you don't have shaky hands~ I will be buying more things from Samsung [I already have the YP P3 & now the SL605 xD]

Got this as a gift at my son's 1st birthday since we didn't have our own camera (family was probably tired of loaning us theirs). It's aesthetically pleasing (got the blue color) and shoots decent photos (mostly on smart auto), but it is VERY fragile. Only after a couple of months, the screen had a huge black bar in it that was eventually fixed through insurance. There wasn't any explanation as to why it blacked out. I didn't drop it, leave it in hot weather, nothing. Fast forward several months later. Another birthday just passed and now i'm sitting here writing this review with a broken camera yet again. Unfortunately, my insurance just expired a few weeks ago so who knows if it can get fixed without costing an arm and a leg. The camera is on, but makes this soft, robotic chirp anytime I try to function it. In addition, the lens is stuck while extended and won't go back in. The only time it does anything is when I press the play button to review the pictures; where then I see the last photo taken for a split second and then I hear the chirp and i'm back at square one. Needless to say, i'm very disappointed in my experience with this camera (other then when it did work and captured my child's life - which is why it gets 2 stars), but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone nor would I purchase it again.

The camera claims to have all of these features, like face recognition, but it doesn't work. The onboard help function gives you step by step directions by pushing the Fcn button, but when you push that button, you don't get the mentioned menu from the help. This is just one example.
