The Samsung SL620 is an excellent camera with a number of stunning features at a low price. A 5x dual image stabilized zoom and high quality 12.2-megapixel resolution allows you to get up close to the action without sacrificing picture color or sharpness. Additionally, Face Detection, Smile and Blink Detection and a range of other camera modes ensure that you're pictures are never a second too late. A 3.0-inch LCD screen makes taking and reviewing photos easier than ever. The SL620 comes with 40 MB of built-in memory, or you can save to SD/SDHC/MMC cards for easy storage and sharing.

As a first time digital camera buyer, I find the camera very easy to use. From the actual taking o the pictures, to the viewing of the pictures on the large view screen, to the transfering of the images to my laptop, the process is very easy and seemless. The camera is very lightweight than most cameras I have used.  Menu dial is very easy and functional.

I bought this camera about a year ago.  It has been a great camera with great functions such as, when my daughter smiles it automatically takes the picture.  Great quality and great focus.  But when I first got it the lens broke and it broke without me even touching the lens.  I am being honest no dropping, hitting, bumping nothing.  Then it did it about two times after that.  So I would recommend this for it's picture taking quality but if you are not super careful with it then I would not recommend it because the lens breaks very easily.  It's very sensitive.

I Smile Big for my Samsung SL620 Camera

By 

from Valparaiso, IN

Comments about Samsung - SL620 Digital Camera:

I got this camera to replace my older one that was showing its age. I love this camera! it is great for taking clear sharp pictures in many different situations. I would say that it takes a second to go from camera to video mode, but that is not that important. The pictures and videos it takes are high quality. The camera battery does last a long time and the charging cable doubles as the one to hook the camera to your computer (if you don't use a card reader) so that is convenient. One thing I noticed is that it takes AWESOME videos, BUT the file size is so big, even on my 4gb card it will only hold around 20 minutes of video. Also, when zooming, the microphone cuts out in the video so you have to be prepared for that. Other than that, I haven't had any issues with this camera!

        Comments about Samsung - SL620 Digital Camera:

        Love this camera!! My husband bought it for me for Christmas 2 years ago and it is still working great! It takes amazing close ups .....the picture is always clear weather you are taking pictures or recording videos. It is easy to use and easy to upload the pictures to any type of computer ! The price was amazing beings it was bought on Black Friday from our local Walmart. The camera is light weight and cute and very durable it goes everywhere with us ! The colour effects are also great. The only thing I noticed is the cameras volume (when playing back a video) is not loud enough to hear unless of course you upload it to the computer and listion which surely can be a hassle in itself ! I have got two of my closest friends to also purchase similar Samsung cameras and they also are now devoted Samsung buyers!!

        It takes great photos and easy to use

        By 

        from Monrovia, CA

        Comments about Samsung - SL620 Digital Camera:

        I received this camera for my birthday a year ago and over all I have been satisified with the results  this camera has given me. I like that its a 12.2 mega pixel, its fairly easy to use. You can use the preloaded music that comes with the camera and create a really cool slide show. You have the option to turn your photos into sepia or b&w. Its easy to zoom in and out. When your searching for your photos you have the option to view one photo at a time or scroll through multiple photos on the screen to find what your looking for faster. for kicks and giggles you can choose from a few different preloaded sounds to be active when you push the shoot button. The color is vibrant and I like the small size of the camera. It easily fits into my pants pocket or purse. Its not bulky or heavy and the screen on the back is large enough to see what your photographing. Over all I dont have any major complaints about this camera. I've given it to my 5 year old and she's gone around the house and photographed hundreds of photos and its easy enough for her to use. It also takes decent video. Great camera over all.

        Groovy little camera for those on the go

        By 

        from Waltham, MA

        Comments about Samsung - SL620 Digital Camera:

        I really love this camera. It is small enough to take everywhere I go and has all of the functionality that I need.

        At 12.2 megapixels and w/a 5x optical zoom, it takes great pictures. The settings vary from simple for the beginning to advanced for the long-time photographer. Even the video comes out quite good.

        Getting the pix from camera to computer is just as easy. The power cord doubles as the USB connection. The battery has a long life, too.

        If you are off on vacation or just out w/friends and family, make sure you keep the SL620 with you to capture life's groovy moments.

        I would buy it over again

        from Williamsburg, VA

        Comments about Samsung - SL620 Digital Camera:

        This ***is ***the best camera you can buy for the price.  The quality of the camera is superb for it has many great features including A Perfect Portrait system and Dual image stabalization; helps for the best standstill image.  The zoom quality is probably one of the best features with its 5x zoom and the LCD screen. 

        My only complaint is when your zooming in/out while recording a video the sound dsables until your done focusing, throws the vidoe quaity off for you cant every aspect.

        Great Camera

        By 

        from Holland, MI

        Comments about Samsung - SL620 Digital Camera:

        This camera is great.  I purchased this camera a year ago for my mother to replace her Casio.  the Casio was a great camera and this Samsung has been more than good enough even surpassing the Casio she had before.  With 12.2 mega pixels and 5x optical zoom it can take some very stunning pictures.  The large screen is great for previewing pictures and with face detection you are guaranteed to take a great picture every time.  This camera is simple enough to let even the most non tech savvy person operated with ease.

        The Samsung SL620 digital camera is an all around great camera for day-to-day photography. It has everything needed in one compact camera.The large LCD screen is excellent for viewing photos on the spot. Photos are very high quality and can be edited directly from the camera. Several preset shooting modes and custom shooting modes. Face detection automatically detects subjects faces and adjusts focus. Smile detection mode will automatically take a photo when the subject smiles. Blink detection will automatically take a second photo if the subject blinks. This camera is the most value for the price. Available in black or red/pink.

        Pros include:


        - 12.2 Megapixel with 5x Optical zoom

        - Large LCD screen

        - Captures video, still images as well as still images from video

        - Compact size

        - 11 preset shooting modes (action, up close, night, sunset, etc.)

        - Custom shooting modes

        - Face detection, blink detection and smile mode

        - Smart Album - digital contents management

        - In-camera editing

        - Battery life is surprisingly good

        - Easy-to-use and comes with user-friendly editing software


        Cons include:


        - When taking video, volume is muted during zoom.

        - Scrolling through photos takes a while, but can be easily avoided if using Smart Album feature.

        - Continuous photo modes reduce quality of photos.

        So easy to use

        By 

        from Kansas City, MO

        Comments about Samsung - SL620 Digital Camera:

         The Samsung SL620 is a great easy to use camera with a lot of great features at a reasonable price. It has a 5x dual image stabilized zoom and high quality 12.2-megapixel resolution which allows you to get great up close photos with fantastic picture color or sharpness. It also has face detection, smile and blink detection with a full range of other camera modes so you get great photos almost every time. With a 3.0-inch LCD screen that makes taking and reviewing photos easier, especially when your eyesight isn't as good as it used to be. The SL620 comes with 40 MB of built-in memory, or the ability to save to SD/SDHC/MMC memory cards for easy storage and sharing with your family.

        This is not my first digital camera but this is one of the easier to use Samsung cameras I have purchased. The menu dial is very easy to use as well.  Taking pictures couldn't be much easier than this.
