I received my Samsung camera as a Christmas gift two years ago. At first I did not take a ton of pictures I never really had the need. Now I love taking pictures of everything. The quality is exceptional. I love the fact that there is red eye reduction. That was the main reason that I did not take many pictures. Now that I have this feature available to me I have taken some great family pictures. The pictures that I take help capture the memories of days gone by and really look great in a scrapbook. The size of the camera is also a plus. It easily fits in a purse and pocket if necessary. However, the camera is easy to handle even for an armature. I also like the fact that this camera seems really durable. It always seems that someone drops the camera, but this one still hasn't broken which is great.
