Great camera with great specs for the money & the 10x zoom optical zoom is excellent. If you are gonna buy then £99.99 at Argos.

The video quality is good with good sound for even conserts. I recommand this camera, I bought it at 140euro at store. And great review, thanks.

i just got this on sale, & wow - takes forever for a photo to be taken it seems.

is there something to quicken this up a little? i’m talking about just ONE picture after i turn the camera on. it’s like sitting there waiting to snap or something. never saw anything quite this slow, ever.

also, my “disp” button on the back does nothing (unless i’m in playback mode) - otherwise it does absolutely nothing no matter how many times i press it.

also, the Fn button only lets me pick a photo size?

I agreew ith ‘cin’.  This is NOT a ‘point & shoot’ camera.  By the time the shutter clicks, the subject (4 year old boy) has moved or is out of the display completely.  Yes, I am camera ‘stupid’; can someone please tell me what setting (and how to do it) to make this camera take the photo I’m aiming at, and fast?

I have a Samsung PL210, used once and now the camera will not power on. Bought a new battery, charged it, still won’t power on. Any suggestions?

Hi, I completely agree with Cin and Sooz. The Click button of this camera is very poor. By the time when you wish to shoot what you want, it would be complete gone while the shutter gets ready. Don’t buy this camera if you want to take the moments as-is. Picture quality is not that great as compared to other cameras while the video and sound quality is great.
