The Samsung S730 Digital camera is a good buy for the money. It has many different settings that are user friendly and relevant to the average, everyday picture taker! It comes in a variety of colors, such as black, silver and lime green, among others. It has 7.2 megapixels and ASR (Advanced Shake Reduction) It is compact enough to fit in a bag, so you don't set it down and leave it somewhere. I have had my camera for almost 3 years, and use it nearly everyday, and it still takes pictures just as good as the day I got it. It has been dropped, wet, and thrown. (not that I would recommend doing that to any camera!) I have taken pictures at parties, of the kids being silly, and even action shots at soccer games. Keep in mind that this is not a camera for a professional photographer. Sometimes the shutter is very slow, so I miss the exact shot I was trying to get. Sometimes if I am trying to take the picture from too far away, even though it looks clear, in the picture it doesn't come out clear. But for a little, fairly inexpensive camera it does the job well! The digital camera, of course also takes videos. (I think it will go up to 2 or 3 min). My only complaint is that it does not let me take still shots from the video. My personal experience with Samsung cameras is that they are a good brand of camera, with longevity and precise picture taking, and the Samsung S730 has been no different!
