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.

  • 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
  • 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
  • Fantastic camera
    This is a great buy. This is the first digital camera I've ever owned and I'm in love....more info
  • 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).

    Not really recommended....more info

    great camera ...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
  • Samsung Digital Camera
    I like this camera, and its easy to use. It downloads the pictures to my computer within a few minutes. The only problem I've had so far is that sometimes the flash doesn't go off, and I have to re-set it so that it does....more info
  • takes sharp photos
    A cute little camera that takes clear photos. The instructions are fairly easy to follow and understand. One surprise was the fitted Samsung case that came with the camera. The camera didn't come with a memory card but I purchased a sandisk card that worked well with it....more info
  • 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
  • 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.

  • great
    We bought this for our daughter,It is easy to use ,has a good size screen,and is a nice size you can fit it in your pocket. It also takes nice pictures. My daughter loves the recording aspect....more info
    Bought two of these cameras for my kids for Christmas. Neither one is still working. In spite of being well cared for both cameras eventually became "stuck." The lens would not retract and the display remained dark. I searched the web looking for a solution only to find that this problem is not uncommon and that there is no solution. Stay away from this camera!...more info
  • Beautiful pics for beginner
    The photo quality is awesome. The menu is easy to follow. Uploading the photos is simple. Well worth the price....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
  • 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
  • Not good
    Gave the camera as a gift. It looks small enough for my girl to carry in her purse and snap pics here and there. However after having to exchange two cameras because it would get stuck somehow, we gave up....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
  • 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
  • Samsung S860 8.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 3x Optical Zoom
    A really nice little camera. Great features! I bought mine refurbished, and so far so good. A great little toy!...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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Good brand, good price...
    Just right what I was looking for: versatility, compact size, good price, good image quality.......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
  • Camera
    The Camera has great options and features, but unfortunately this is the second one I have received and I have to return it again for malfunctions....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
  • THis camera is a piece of crap!
    I bought this camera for my daughter for Christmas. It is now only the begining of March and it is already completly broken. It has not functioned correctly since we first purchased it. I have tried numerous types of batteries and still keep having camera failure! $100 is a lot of money to just throw away on JUNK! I will NEVER purchase a Samsung product again!...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
  • 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
  • Great for the price.....
    Bought this for my grand daughter. I own high end P/S and SLR cameras and I wasn't expecting much for this price. Let me tell you this camera greatly exceeded my expectations. It has a lot of high end P/S camera features. It is the first camera that I have seen that allows you to zoom while using the video. It does take a little longer to write to the SD card after taking a picture than any other camera I've owned but that's a minor annoyance, maybe a faster SD card could cure that. The features are easy to use and intuitive. The screen is a nice size and clear. It's a very small size camera and one you can take anywhere as it will fit in pocket or purse easily. All in all its a very good camera at a very good price and I highly recommend it. One major annoyance with this camera is that when you turn it on it will always go to the red eye reduction flash setting and will flash 2-3 times before taking the flash picture. This will cause you to miss the picture you want as after the first flash fires, you will think the picture was taken and you will move the camera. The camera does not remember the last flash setting you had when you turned it off. It's a real pain to have to fool with the flash settings every time you turn this camera on, unless you like red eye reduction every time you turn it on. ...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
