Product Description

The Samsung S860 is a high-resolution digital camera that is equipped with a true-color filtered 8.1-Megapixel CCD. This allows the Samsung S860 to take detailed photos for printing up to poster size. With the Face Detection AF & AE function, the Samsung S860 enables the user to take better portrait pictures more easily. This function detects faces and automatically focuses on them. The brightness of the faces is adjusted optimally for beautiful portrait pictures. In macro shooting, it is now possible to take clear, natural pictures. Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) technology prevents the degradation of image clarity and color, which is sometimes found in flash photography. With DIS the effects of image blur are reduced in lower light conditions. You can even take well-exposed, sharper pictures in low light conditions without using a flash at all, which guarantees brighter and more natural pictures. The different icons, scene modes and other features are described in simple and easy to understand terms to improve the interaction between the user and camera.

Customer Reviews:

  • Bought 3 of them
    I bought three of the Samsung S860s for some kids prior to a trip. One of the lenses didn't work (it was jammed) from the start. The other two (about 2 weeks old seem ok) but one was not from the start. Luckily Amazon will take it back....more info
  • Lasted only 2 months
    I bought this for my niece as an entry level digital camera. It took decent pictures, especially for the price ($84). However, after 2 months of light use it quit working. It gave an error message to replace the batteries, even with several sets of new batteries. It would also freeze in the open position, or refuse to turn on. It may be a fine camera and we got a lemon, but I will try a different model next time. ...more info
  • Gave this camera to my daughter for Christmas.
    I gave this camera to my daughter for Christmas. It already doesn't work. Hope I can return it so I can get her a better camera. I'd say that Canon is a good camera maker. From the very beginning she had problems with the camera. When she would turn it off, the lense wouldn't completely shut. ...more info
  • Why can't I use this on a Macbook?
    there is nothing in the techs saying I can't use this on a Mac - but the driver is only for Windows - any suggestions?
    Samsung Customer Support has not returned my email yet......more info
  • Samsung S860 Digital Camera
    I purchased this for my 8 yr old niece 3 days before Christmas Eve & it came on time! She loved it & had it in her hand the entire day. The only negative is it came with an internal memory card with only 6 pictures. I would get the SD card to go with it next time so they can snap away!...more info
    I wanted to wait until I used the camera on vacation to LA California to rate this and almost didn't because I was so happy with the quickness of the shipping and very impressed by the entire deal itself! But I'm glade I did wait! Now I can me 100% sure of my rating. Don't wait if your thinking about buying this, just buy it! And buy it from these guys! Came like 7 days BEFORE the delivery day, and the unit works great! I'd get the biggest card like a 2-4 gb to take your photos with and invest in 4 rechargeable batteries and the recharge unit, because they go quick! But besides that, this little digital camera does it all for under $90! I know nothing about taking pictures, and you don't need to know a thing with this unit, because it does it all for you!!!! VERY HAPPY AND BUY THIS IF YOUR NOT SURE, JUST DO IT! YOU WONT BE SORRY! GREAT STORE AND FAST DELIVERY!!!!! VERY HAPPY-THANKS AMAZON!!!!...more info
  • Just what we were looking for
    The camera was given to my 14 year old for Christmas. I am very with what I have seen so far....more info
  • Awesome camera
    I love this camera, great quality, great price. Speedy shipping. I love the video feature. ...more info
  • Don't buy this piece of garbage
    I bought this camera for my daughter for her birthday in June. By mid-July it had stopped focusing. The manager at the local RadioShak store where I purchased it was kind enough to do a swap, although he's not supposed to do that. The new camera lasted almost through the summer. Again it stopped focusing and the lense would not retract when the camer is powered-off. It beeps a few times, but nothing else happens. Now she wants a new camera for Christmas. I've sent this one back to Samsung for repair/replacement as it's still under the one year warranty, but I've now seen two of these fail within months. Both myself and my daugher have lost confidence and are not convinced that the repaired/replaced unit will last any longer. Spend your money wisely. Spend a little more and buy a Canon or Nikon......more info
  • Great little camera for the price
    This is an awesome little camera for the below $100 price range. Good clear pictures and the colors pretty true. Watch your batteries, though. It tends to drain them quick....more info
  • Great camera!
    I gave it as Christmas gift but before I gave it I had to try it out. The pictures our crisp and clear. I almost gave my camera as the gift. LOL. It is a good investment....more info
  • Excellent choice!
    I bought this camera for my 12 year old granddaughter. We were both thrilled with the selection. The camera takes great photos and is very simple to use. It arrived quickly - even before expected - and was exactly as described. Excellent choice!...more info
  • Didn't expect DSLR in a pocket camera
    I got this camera as a gift. I like it very much, & it takes great shots. I don't expect it to compete against my DSLR camera, it's not made like that.
    I use this camera instead of keeping my 'bigger' camera in the vehicle daily. It tucks away quite easily in it's case, & can be used rather quickly.
    The picture quality is fantastic, there are a few things you can tweak with it, but auto does a fine job. As with most pocket cameras, it's in the jpg format. The picture depth is quite nice.
    I like that it uses AA batteries, & that you can tell the camera if you're using alkaline or 'rechargables'.
    The shutter lag can be annoying, when you're trying to get a fast shot (the reason to have this camera, for me), but it's digital, small & easy.
    The amount of time between shots, isn't too bad really (of course these things are affected by battery, & card).

    One thing I wish it had, is delete during save. I love this feature on my much older HP pocket. I will say that you can set the instant review to be a little longer, & the stored shot review is a quick button.
    As with most pocket cameras, you shoot via the lcd screen. A bit hard to get accustomed to, but does make shooting easier.
    I would suggest picking one up. Do a comparison on the camera you want, don't expect it to take a picture of the ring around the moon, it's not made for that. One final thing, it has a 'kid action' setting that is pretty good for cats as well....more info
  • Samsung Digital Camera
    I was very disppointed with the camera. The first picture I took at Thanksgiving was fine. When I tried to take a second picture, the camera froze on me. I had to repeatedly remove the battery to re-set the camera to take pictures. I plan on returning the camera....more info
  • Decent camera. Picture quality could be better
    Camera has lots of features for its price. It's picture quality however is not as sharp. All my indoor picture comes out quite grainy, regardless of the distance from the object. I am not sure if the flash is not strong enough, or the lens is the problem....more info
  • Nice Camera for 9 year old, but you need to buy memory card
    Bought this camera for my 9 year old niece. She loves it (especially because it's pink) but was upset that it only took about 3 pictures. The camera did not come with any memory card, which was very disappointing, so she now has to go out and buy one. Most cameras usually come with a minimum of 32MB, (at least they used to). Otherwise it's easy to use, and the viewfinder is nice and clear....more info
  • Not so good
    I was pleased with this camera for awhile after i bought it for my girlfriend. Then the problems began. This camera has had numerous problems with freezing, requiring you to remove batteries and reboot. The camera would not work for a 2 week span of time to no avail and we found out it was because it requires rechargeable batteries. Even when you use high quality batteries the results are all over the charts. Sometimes the camera stays powered for a great amount of time. Other times it has literally ran out of juice within 20 pictures. So overall, while it takes quality pictures for the price, i would easily choose to try another camera over this one if i had the chance.

  • good camera
    Bought this camera for my 6 year old so she would leave mine alone. She loves it! Takes pics in auto mode with no trouble. She loves the video feature as well! I bought rechargeable batteries for it because we were burning through regular batteries. It has frozen up a couple of times, but we just pop the battery door and turn it back on and its fine. Overall, a good camera for what I bought it for....more info
  • Good brand, good price...
    Just right what I was looking for: versatility, compact size, good price, good image quality.......more info
  • Satisfactory, no porblems faced
    I had a good experience. The product arrived timely, product was in good condition. I did not face any problems at all....more info
  • easy to break LCD
    I like the features and size of the camera, but the LCD screen cracked with very little pressure applied to it while it was packed in a bag. I only had the s860 for two weeks and now it is unusable. Of course Samsung considers that "physical damage" and will not warranty that, even though I think the amount of force it took to break is unacceptable. Consider this a disposable camera unless you constantly carry it in a box of feathers....more info
  • Easy to undersand functions
    I found that this camera is much easier to use than my last one. Easy to understand function Clear pics on the simple mode....more info
  • Great camera for the $$$
    Samsung S860 8.1MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Black)
    We are not exactly photogs in our family, but my teen stepdaughter wanted a camera for her birthday. This one was a very reasonable price with the features she wanted (black, big viewing screen in the back, zoom and the ability to do video). She likes it - so I like it. Takes nice pictures so far!...more info
  • Digital camera
    We received the product in excellent time. It was a gift. They loved it and it seemed to be a better camera than what we had at a cheaper price. Thanks!...more info
  • Samsung S860
    I am not a professional photographer. I am an ordinary person who wanted a point and shoot camera. This camera is everything I need. I needed a camera to take pictures of my kids at sporting events, classroom pictures and for awards nights. It takes great pictures and even video. It is small and fits into my cargo pockets. I have medium size hands and the camera is easy to hold and the display easy to read. I am very pleased with it. For those of you who read this, it is a great point and shoot camera. I do recommend it for that purpose....more info
  • pictures are too dark!
    I am going to return this camera. The screen has terrible resolution and all of my pictures are coming out dark. I do think the menu and features are very user-friendly. But I just went out and got a canon and i am much happier with it. Pay a little more and get better quality....more info
  • I am very satisfied with the purchase
    Thank you, the product reached its destination very quickly, I bought it is very affordable and of good quality....more info
  • Stopped working the day after we got it
    The camera's feature set is pretty decent for the price, but the quality is not. The camera freezes at random times and needs to have the batteries removed and put back in in order to shut it off. Sometimes when you turn it on it displays a random black blob on the ECF and will not function at all....more info
  • Fantastic Camera
    I got this camera after reading other people's reviews, and I am glad I did. The folks who rated this camera with 4-5 stars are right on the money! This is the perfect little camera, the instructions are not hard to understand, the software is easy to install, and the fact that I got it in my fave colour.. well I'm very pleased. Simple to use, and yet it takes some of the best pictures I've ever taken. I recommend this camera to young and old alike. ...more info
  • It was a Christmas gift for a grand and she loves it.
    We have been pleased with the camera. Our grand daughter loves it - it was a Christmas gift ....more info
  • Love It!!!
    I brought this camera to keep in my purse because it was small and compact. To my surprise, it takes clearer and sharper pictures than my very expensive bulky camera! Excellent camera for the price!...more info
  • Very Nice Camera
    This camera is very nice and delivers clear pictures and has good features. The only negative is that it is a bit slow in processing pictures but thats the only flaw for me....more info
  • Yay, this camera is so cool!
    I got this camera as a christmas gift and i luuuuuuuved it<3 my favorite function of this camera was the video mode! The day after i got it, i took it with me to go sledding with my friend and we went down the big hill while filming with this camera and caught the whole moment all the way! the sound was very good, it recorded it all nicely, and played it back was fun and easy to do! The manual mode and portrait mode were also very good too, the pics i took came out nice and bright when taking it in dimmer areas with the flash on. the stabilization mode could've been a little better though, but otherwise if your looking for a regular standard camera to use then you should definetly get this camera! it's east to use once you play with the modes a little, and good for the price too<3 Oh, and also maybe buy some rechargable batteries and a good memory card for more pics and longer life, but it's a good standard point and shoot digital camera if your just using it for regular activities unless your looking for a really top camera for profession/buisness. It captures great memories<3...more info
  • nice little package
    Small, but more than adequate. Good pics. Easy to use. Very good price and Samsung a good brand. Love it and carry it around. Not the best for macros. ...more info
  • Nice Camera for kids
    My only problem with this camera is that it does not come with a memory card. If you are not aware of this, and the camera is a gift, you may find yourself scrambling to purchase one for the gift's recipient so that they can use their new gift!...more info
  • Great point and shoot
    I bought this camera for my 16 year old daughter. It takes great pictures, but what I didn't know when I bought this is that it takes pictures in black and white, sepia, and all sorts of other formats. My daughter LOVES all that and has taken some amazing pictures. I would definitely recommend this camera, and would buy it again....more info
  • So far so good!
    I gave this to my daughter for far 99.9% of the pictures we downloaded are sharp and clear. Although she is mentally challenged, she had no difficulty operating it immediately. She loves its pink color, I love the quality of the photos and the ease of use....more info
  • Returned item immediately - but great price
    I think this camera is probably fine but it felt like one of those old digital cameras from earlier this decade. For example it used double AA batteries instead of a rechargeable. The processing speed for each picture was incredibly slow (actually might be slower than my Canon from 2002) and it felt light and plastic-y, just cheap. However that being said it is incredibly affordable and if I did not have another camera to use I probably would have kept this one because the price was so good. Since I returned the item I cannot say anything in terms of its longevity.
    However, seller was great, shipping was fast and return was very easy....more info

    A really nice little camera. Great features! I bought mine refurbished, and so far so good. A great little toy!...more info
  • granddaughter loves it
    I bought this camera for my granddaughters 9th birthday and she just loves it so I would imagine it to be easy to use saying she has just been photo shooting everything which makes me very happy also she told me it was the best gift ever which is a good thing!...more info
  • A great little camera at a great price
    If you're looking for operating simplicity, easy handling and portability and a light-weight price in a digital camera, this Samsung is about the best value you could find. Nice zoom feature, easy on batteries, clear photos, compact size - it's really a well-designed, nicely appointed, inexpensive point-and-shoot camera. I bought this to use for work - I'm a faith formation director/youth director at a small parish - and it's already done yeoman's service for us....more info
  • Excellent Camera
    My daughter wanted a nice quality inexpensive digital camera that didn't look cheap. Who doesn't!? It has all the bells and whistles and takes really nice pictures with ease. She loves it. And I looked at tons of digital cameras online. It may have come from Target, but finding it through Amazon makes the shopping experience so much easier. Especially the reviews!...more info
  • Very Nice....More than what I expected
    This camera is very nice. You cannot beat the price. It is small and convenient. You can see you pictures in a slide show with music and picture effects. I had some trouble with the camera at first, but once I bought some expensive energizer lithium batteries, everything has worked out fine. I would reccommend this camera to anyone. I absoloutely love the face detection.

  • Don't waste your money!
    I loved this camera after I got it. I was upgrading from a 3.1MP, so the pictures I took looked amazing. However, after only 3 months, the camera is not operable at all. When I try to power it on, it simply beeps 3 times and shuts off. The lens won't retract either. After searching the internet for a solution, I find this is a common, known problem and seems to be no solution. My only option is to send it back to Samsung who will replace it with an identical one that will probably malfunction in the same manner....more info
