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:

  • You get what you pay for.
    My 2 cents:

    For me this was like an expensive disposable camera - I bought it for a situation which I knew could get me in trouble to save the camera, and sure enough it was gone after 2 weeks, but that's another story.

    Shutter speed is not particularly fast (long response time from pressing the shutter button to "actual picture taking."), and flash and image quality not very good either.
    It can take videos though, so that could be an appeal for you YouTube junkies.

    Ultimately, if you can save another hundred or so, there are some VERY good cameras in the $200-250 range, like a Sony Cybershot DSC-T70 8.1MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom with Super Steady Shot Image Stabilization (Silver).

  • 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
  • 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

    it was a gift for my mom. she loves it. haven't had a problem with it yet.

  • great for little girls
    We bought this camera for our 5 year old on her birthday - it is quite resistant (she has droped it a few times!) and takes really quite decent pictures - it's also a great size. All in all, a great price and since those "just for kids cameras" are almost as much and take horrible pictures, I would really recommend it for your little shutterbug!...more info
  • Works well for a 9 year old user
    We purchased this camera for our 9 year old as a birthday gift. She loves taking pictures with it and it's been working great for the ~6 weeks she's had it. The pictures on the LCD look great, but sadly we haven't gotten around to downloading or printing any. So hopefully the prints are as good as they appear to be on the display. ...more info
  • Great value
    If your looking for a simple point and shoot with stabilization, then this is it. Samsung has facial recognition which is a nifty little feature. Good battery life and compact! Hope this helps!...more info
  • Excellent Camera
    This was an excellent buy. The camera runs off of regular batteries (no need to wait for the battery to recharge), and it takes the regular SD cards (max 2GB). Easy to use and excellent colors

    The person I bought it for LOVES the camera....more info
  • Great Starter Camera
    This camera is an excellent starter camera. When I first got the camera I was disapointed in the quality of its construction. The buttons seemed cheap and the camera felt light like it was cheap. Now a month has passed and the camera has prooven to have the quality it was made for....more info
  • I love my new camera!
    The camera arrived in excellent package condition within the stated time to my door. I love it! I haven't used all the features yet, just getting familiar with it, but I love it--easy to use, and the battery life is excellent! I have an older Pentax Optio that just eats batteries, even recharged ones, within minutes, but not this Samsung beauty! I haven't printed any pictures yet, but I am sure they will be great. This sounds silly, but I may get another one in a few months, just to have a spare.
    I would buy this camera from this seller again. I recommend it....more info
  • Awesome camera
    I love this camera, great quality, great price. Speedy shipping. I love the video feature. ...more info
  • Super easy camera
    This is an easy to use camera if you are just using the factory settings to point and shoot. There are some really cool other things: the camera takes 2 AA batteries, it is flat and small, uses both SD and HCSD cards and it is inexpensive. This is a good camera for trips, showing clients information about products if in a service industry or for video testimonials. There has been a few times where the camera has not taken a clear photo so you may have to take duplicates but that is rare. If you are looking for a camera that does a ton of tricks this one is not for you. ...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
  • 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
  • Nice Basic Camera
    I bought this camera for my 8 year old son as a Christmas present. The display and the price were the two reasons I chose it. Overall I am satisfied with the camera since it is serving my son well but I have noticed that it has a distinct lag between pressing the shutter release and the actual picture snapping. I know it is a common occurrence with digital cameras, but it seems a bit more pronounced with this one. I would recommend this to someone looking for a beginner or first camera, but expect to out grow it in a year...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.
