Innovative Smart Touch
Navigating complicated menu systems is a thing of the past! The brilliant new Smart Touch user interface makes accessing menu functions and reviewing your images an absolute pleasure. This unique touch-sensitive system gives you easy, intuitive control over the camera, and the large 2.5" LCD gives you a great view everytime.

Advanced Shake Reduction (ASR)
ASR reduces the effects of camera shake in low light conditions and macro shooting. Flash photography can sometimes result in harsh, over-exposed images, but ASR guarantees bright, crisp and natural images without using a flash at all.

Flash or no flash? Wise Shot can take both at once
This clever feature allows you to choose the best picture by taking 2 shots simultaneously - one using ASR and one using a flash. So if you're unsure, let the camera do the work for you and simply choose the image you prefer when the hard work has been done!

Face Recognition AF & AE
Regardless of the composition of the picture, the face of a subject is automatically recognised and focused. (AF) Even in backlight, the flash automatically fires in order to take a picture with appropriate illumination.(AE) Face recognition technology supports more beautiful portrait picture taking. This function automatically recognise the face of a subject and optimises focus and brightness in shooting.

Advanced movie functions:
The L73 supports SVGA quality (800x592,20fps) for an enhanced video shooting experience. You can even edit your movies on the camera itself, making these clever models brilliantly portable but powerful movie-makers.

Zoom while recording your movie
The L73 allows the use of the optical 3x zoom to get closer to the subject while still recording. This offers a camcorder-like recording experience.

Built-in movie editing:
This mode is used to select and cut desired scenes from a recorded movie, and save the scenes. The mode is very convenient because editing a movie can occur within the camera itself, immediately after recording the movie.

Motion Capture Mode
The high-speed continuous shooting function makes it possible to take 30 high resolution images VGA size(640x480) in one sequence.When the shutter is pressed down and held, 30 shots are taken per second. Using this function, you can analyse your golf swing, capture a race car speeding by, or study other sequences of motion.

11 Scene Modes:
You have a choice of scene modes to help you get the perfect shot in any situation. By automatically adjusting the camera's setting according to the situation, you can be sure of getting great pictures effortlessly. The scene modes provided are Night Scene, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Text, Sunset, Dawn, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach and Snow.

Red-eye fix:
A special Red-eye Fix algorithm on the camera automatically eliminates red-eye from your pictures. You can remove red-eye during image payback, or for even greater convenience, set the camera to automatically detect and eliminate red-eye from your shots as they are taken.

Advanced Photo Gallery:
When viewing the images on the LCD, it is possible to listen to music provided by the camera or add special effects to the images to be displayed on the LCD. Diverse slide effects make image viewing more interesting.

    Samsungs current entry 7MP with face detection the S760 is £69.99 currently. This camera is smaller has a recharagable battery and its slimmer! You really cant go wrong.

    I would recommend the 4GB SD HC card which is currently £8.49 ... loads of pictures!

     Excellent Purchase!!

    I bought this camera last week as after reading the specification and then seeing the price, I was impressed with the value for money. I did however previous to the purchase span the internet reading reviews for the camera and although they were mixed I thought I would give it a try.

    But it is a fantastic camera, excellent value for money. At first it can be hard to get to grips with the 'touch button' feature, but I mastered this in a matter of 5 minutes. Also with a wide variety of different functions available to fiddle with, you are sometimes spoilt for choice. At the moment I have primarily used the inbuilt programs for close-up, portrait shots etc, and they have provided me with fantastic pictures both times. Meaning this camera is ideal for someone with basic knowledge of photography, but the ability to adjust ICO and shutter speed etc really give it the edge that an intermediate photographer needs.

    The other good thing about this camera is that it is small and could easily fit in your pocket etc also contrary to the other reviews I have seen, the camera does not look cheap!!

    It also charges via USB meaning you dont have to pour out money on batteries (I was originally worried about this as wanting to take the camera on holiday I did ewonder how I was going to charge it if there were no computers available) however there is a small plug with USB port attached meaning you can charge the camera anywhere with a mains supply!!

    All in all at the moment I will very much suggest that if you are considering buying this camera...then you do so!! And I have not even used the face recognition yet!

     awesome camera!!

    well worth buying is has everything modern like face detection and the optical zoom is great. (the 5x digtal zoom ends up a bit blurry but if you only use about 2/3x digital then its fine)

    me AND a friend both bought these cameras (4gb SD card for #8 on play.com) and its well worth a buy!

     Love it!
