Samsung Digimax V6 review

I recently obtained the "A6" version of this camera. I was clearly disappointed. The shutter is slow, auto focusing is erratic, and the camera has a nasty habit of producing blurry pictures at anything short of bright sunlight or close-range flash. On the plus side, the standard camera-side USB connector and option for using ordinary AA batteries are nice touches.

The camera also had a bad pixel in the CCD image sensor, which at least made my return to the store a little easier to explain :). I ended up buying the Panasonic FX9 which was a huge improvement and clearly a keeper(see my review).

Problems:

Slow shutter response, erratic auto-focus, blurry pictures, bad pixel on the unit I tested.
