Samsung S85 review

I have had the camera for about a year and it has proven to be a great buy. Still haven't explored all the features but I will experiment more with it.

The camera does well with macro shots and colours come out well. It does allow the zoom to be used when videoing however there is no sound recorded whilst zooming. The camera fires up promptly and the auto focus is fast & accurate. The LCD display is good.
I have found that use of quality precharged batteries to be worthwhile eg eneloops. The camera tends to not like lesser quality rechargeables. It's a plus that it takes AA's.

If you want a good compact camera that produces good results & you can still find one for sale don't hesitate to buy it. The black ones look better than the silver ones in my opinion. Don't let the chunky plain jane looks fool you.
