The Samsung S850 is a high-resolution digital camera with a true-color filtered 8.1 mega-pixel CCD for more detailed photos for large-scale printing. It has an 5x optical and 5x digital zoom for an effective 25x total zoom. The large 2.5" LCD offers improved contrast and color reproduction, and ASR technology prevents degradation of clarity and color common to flash photography. The effects of camera shake are reduced even in lower light conditions. You can take well-exposed, sharper pictures without using a flash at all, for brighter and more natural pictures.

The Samsung S850's auto sensitivity feature adjusts exposure according to ambient conditions up to ISO 1600 for clear indoor pictures in the dark. The powerful video capability delivers a "camcorder like" experience using MPEG-4, the high-compression/quality video format, for up to 3-4 times longer recording than the video formats used in many other cameras. Powerful SVGA video recording (800X592) at 20fps provides a wider view and clearer quality. The Samsung S850 has a Movie Stabilizer function, helping to maintain steady recording of a subject by automatic detection and correction of camera movements.

The manual functions of a digital camera enable you to produce any image you want to express. Powerful support lets you express your intent according to subject. For the A Mode and S Mode functions, change mode easily by the left/right button (shutter speed priority) and up/down button (aperture priority) of the 5-directional control. When using the camera in M Mode, even a novice photographer can easily use the manual functions with the optimum exposure display at the bottom of the LCD. The Samsung S850 has some intriguing special effect functions to give you unique shooting experiences beyond conventional picture taking. You can access each of these special effects with just one touch of the "E" button. The Samsung S850B offers such an array of features to explore, you may forget what you came to shoot! But don't, because you'll want to capture every moment.

4 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby, if you can find one

Pros: nice, clear images - excellent lenses - clear display - manual settings - TV-resolution video at 30fps

Cons: slow shutter speed - lots of digital noise at high ISO (ISO=shutter speed; faster=higher number)- confusing interface - power hungry

Other Thoughts: I got it a month or so ago. It's very nice if you have time to line up a shot, but it just isn't worth it if a lot of your shots must be taken on-the-fly, as higher ISO than 200 will leave a lot of digital noise in the shot, but the low ISO you need for clean images are too slow for even a walking subject. The S85, which is comparable in features, has much better performance at high ISO ratings, but you give up the manual controls. For me, the S85's a better bargain, but if you want to experiment with shutter speed and manual focus, you can't beat this camera...just prepare to spend a few hours getting used to its menus, and bring an extra set of batteries.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat but Not so Great

Pros: Has great manual functions. Easy to use menu...big fricken screen. Nice movie features and cool motion capture feature.

Cons: Seems to be a HUGE battery hog when recording movies. Seems to eat quite a few batteries. I went tot he beach one weekend and took about 150 pics about 10% with flash and about 6 - 14 second(average) clips at 640x480 30fps. went through about 8 batteries

Other Thoughts: would ahve been SO awesome if it wasnt for the battery hoggness in movie mode. Havent tried with rechargable Ni-MH yet fingers crossed
