This Camera flew under my radar for sure. Has some interesting specs, crazy amount of manual controls including time lapse. I may get the cam just for that if it takes decent pics. And cheap too. Im sure there must be a downside. Not sure RAW is much of a benefit if adobe doesnt pick it up?

Looks like one drawback is battery life (150 pics)

I just love the 2 analog dials on top. That alone would make me want to buy one! :mrgreen:

Haha, those dials look like something that you'd find on the dash of an old car!

A standout spec to me would be the AMOLED display, I love those high-res displays, and the abundance of manual controls is great. Looks like a nice compact!

Being a car lover myself, that's exactly why I love them! It's a nice lil touch and I would love to see it on more cameras.

It makes me wonder what inspired Samsung to put those dials up top, I mean, it sets them apart from the competition but how useful are they? Are they just a gimmick?

It's just another way to display the battery and memory card capacity and certainly is a unique approach. Some might consider it a gimmick (just like movie modes on DSLRs for example), but not me! :)
