Found This As Best Normal Camera
from Houma, LA, USA
Comments about Samsung 16.2 MP Smart Digital Camera - Black:
I was looking for a consumer version of a normal lens camera. I tried to stay as far away as possible from exaggeration technology. Career professionals are much happier zooming in on boring subjects like frogs and lab rats. But when I got to the store, the Coolpix was becoming obsolete, super enhanced or on clearance. Meanwhile this camera was a bump from the base-line 10x zoom to 12x. Then it was back to business-as-usual with the 6.2 megapixels feature. I noticed Coolpix's 16 megapixel camera sold out. 16.2 MP will get you out of a tight spot like shading a dark object but does little more for normal picture taking. The 12x zoom will put more peeping toms in more remote locations. My favorite is the type 24mm Wide Angle, F3.1 W ~ 6.3 T. This is the normal camera I'm looking for because the focus is not too wide nor too deep. Also, the macro and landscape modes are so cool. These are things I'd rather leave to the professionals unless this extra software is available for free. Overall I gave it five stars because I really want the kind of normal lens you find in full-frame cameras without having to pay 6 times the price. And I also like it's purple paint job even though I bought the white one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy to use
from LaFayette, GA 30728, USA
Takes good pictures, very inexpensive and the 12x optical zoom is very good brings your subject in really close. Put the camera in smart mode your ready.
This camera has just about everything most people need. I prefer small cameras to the larger ones as they are easy to put in my purse on the go, and take up less room when travelling. I have had several small cameras and this is by far the best. Wonderful zoom feature, really gets up close. I absolutely love the fact that I can wifi upload the pictures to my tablet. Makes it so easy and then they are automatically backed up in the cloud so you never lose them. I just use it on the simple point and shoot method most of the time since that is the easiest. However, there are many great features that you can explore if you need more options. The camera feels solid, easy to hook up to your computer. I downloaded the pdf manual so I can really learn all the features. I highly recommend this product, I didn't find anything that I disliked about it.
Great, but not all it's cracked up to be
from Amarillo, TX, USA
I like this little camera. I wished that I loved it, but its YouTube functionality is lacking. Their are some pretty stingy limits, as well, on the file sizes. The wireless transfer is also a bit clunky and slow. You have to disconnect your devices from a shared wi-fi network and connect to a dedicated wi-fi output from the camera, itself. It does take a good picture, and the videos are good. Its performance in low light is more than adequate, and it's pretty easy to use overall. I would definitely buy it again, but I wouldn't be quite so high on the "Smart" camera functionality of the camera. I end up not using the wi-fi connectivity and auto uploading because it's so limited.
It is great for a youtuber, or vlogger
from Bayonne, France
I mean if you want a cheap good camera ok. It should have the features from the older version on this camera. Was dissapointed when all the distort is not their, but the quality. And another advice is why is this cheaper then the older version. Just saying.......
great camera,easy to use,great price,would recommend to friends.
Love the features!!! Easy to use and takes great pictures. Fits perfect in pocket and purse.
So much stuff
from Tampa, FL, USA
This camera has so many features. It has built in filters (including fish eye) also you can edit your pictures within the camera. I like that you can email the pictures or use wifi to automatically send them to your phone using the Samsung App. I have an iphone and it still works well.
