Samsung Digimax 401 review

I have rather similar A40. Overall, very nice cam, especially for a price I had paid.
+ Well-built. (there are flimsy parts like lens andbattery cover, but overall, - built like brick.)
+Does its job.

-Usable indoors, but only in P mode with ISO 400 and non-auto WB, not great even then. (Although noise is fairly low.)
-Heavy for its class.
-No manual modes other than P, modes menu instead of dial (and rather badly set up by default. )

Problems:

flash switching on itself whenever you change to certain modes, including full auto. very annoying and dangerous at times.
SD cards support, - it does not support SD cards larger than 512 MB. On the other hand, you don't really need more with 4 MPix.
