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:

  • 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
  • Seashell
    I bought the camera for my son for christmas. He love it, it works great the pictures are clear. I find the batteries die to fast and the back light is not bright. It is a good buy for your money....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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Awesome camera
    I love this camera, great quality, great price. Speedy shipping. I love the video feature. ...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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Fantastic camera
    This is a great buy. This is the first digital camera I've ever owned and I'm in love....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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Love this camera!
    Samsung S860 8.1MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Black)

    This camera is so easy to use and takes great pics! The screen is big enough to see what you are taking a picture of. I am very happy with my purchase!...more info
  • Good brand, good price...
    Just right what I was looking for: versatility, compact size, good price, good image quality.......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
  • great travel not to great proformence
    this cameera was a gift to my girl friend, it was great out of the box, but then i notice there was a lot of file errors on this camera for about every 20 pics there was about 3-5 file errors thought it was the memory card canged it still the same problem, so i wrote a seller feed back review, telling them e the the same thing i wrote, they called my house 1 hour later asking me to erase my seller feed back beause they lost a point with amazon, do I care if they lost a point ??"NO" but i don't like people calling me 9am in the morning asking stupidthings. so this camera gets 2 stars for quality, you get what you pay for on this camera...more info
  • samsung camera
    I really have nothing to report: I bought this as an xmas gift for my brother, haven't heard anything negative yet. Arrived on time, in original packaging, so was happy with that....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
    Well the product arrived on time as scheduled, and it was in good condition. However, I am not satisfied with it ,so I am planning to send it back. First of all, whoever sold it did not specify that it was not rechargeable, besides you cannot take pictures with it when you zoom it. You can only take a snap short if the object is close to you, but if it is a bit far you cannot . I was disappointed when I tried to take photographs at a graduation ceremony from my seat. It was like bones before a Cat. Very disappointing indeed. You have to buy a recheargeable dry cell battry to use. Can I get a better deal for my money. I am a student so I cannot aford to loose or waste that money.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
