"A digital camera for most of us!"

I wanted to buy a digital camera for my vacations but not to spend a fortune for it. After a good market research and between other brands, this one was the best choice i could do.For the money i gave for it, i could only buy at that time a digital camera of 4 Mpixels maximum. But i wanted more than these. It was not a "no name" camera so i took the decision. Of cource i would like to be smaller in size, but at last i found it very handy. It does'nt weight much, sometimes i feel there is nothing in my hand. Pictures are awesome, at least for me that i am not a professional user. It has enough features that can satisfy anyone who wants a camera for personal use. I read the whole instruction manual after i already took about 500 pictures, so easy to use. So, in a few words: dimensions 109,8(W)X56,8(H)X34,1(D)mm, weight 166g, internal 32MB flash memory, external slot SDcard?MMC (up to 512MB), power movie clip(VGA 30fps), one touch manual function, various scene modes, RGB-normal-B&W-sepia colour effects, voice recording, pictbridge printing, mechanical and electronic shutter,flash recharging at 6sec, effective 7MPixels.

Product Information : Samsung DIGIMAX A7

Manufacturer's product description

An improved version of the popular A6, with a large 7 megapixel image sensor, the A7 camera boasts features, function and crystal clear images at an economical price point. In addition to still picture true color and quality sharpness, you get a built-in VGA 30 frames per second movie clip. Plus, it provides an hour of voice recording time with 10 seconds for a voice memo in still images. This camera also has a self-portrait mirror, which allows you to check how you look before you shoot your own image. More super-convenient features include: a double self timer, which goes off after 10 seconds followed by 2 second intervals thereafter; a shutter button which toggles between capture and playback modes (a great innovation to instantly review your images); and another one-touch button that allows you to take charge with manual, aperture priority and shutter priority modes. Choose between eight image sizes from 640 x 480 pixels to 3072 x 2304 pixels and from three resolution ranges - superfine, fine and normal - that's 24 different resolution/size combinations, a useful memory management tool. For example, you can take a postage stamp size picture from only 1.6 inches away in high resolution for wonderful color printing output, or a large, but lower resolution landscape picture for full-screen sharing without choking friends' e-mail. Samsung's in-camera editing capabilities allow you to crop, rotate, and make numerous color revisions to your images.
