Since this digicam has been out for long, i shall not go into the details as most would have been covered by other reviewers.

Straight to the photos...

The star of tonight

The long list of features dotted the side of the box

The flash is hidden, and only pop ups when it is required. I would prefer the conventional one thou, cos this mechanism does make some noise when the flash swings up. However, the 2 dials flanking both sides come very handy in configuring the camera.

The horizontal and vertical rows of buttons you seen here are actually touch buttons! This mechanism combines the benefits of both conventional buttons and touch screen. You get to 'hover' over a button to see the description of the related funtion, which is something missing out from touch screen. Depressing the button activate the related function, the benefit of jumping straight to the function you want, instead of scrolling through the entire list like those with normal button controls.
Kudos to the Samsung engineers who came up with this hybrid system.

Some shots taken by the cam follows, this cam take pretty decent photos, but nothing much to wow about. Though, this camera is one of the very few out there that allows you to use optical zoom while taking video. One point to note, the sound is not recorded while optical zoom is in operation.
