Face Detection AF & AE
With the Face Detection AF & AE function, the Samsung D860 enables the user to take better portrait pictures more easily. The function detects faces and automatically focuses on them; the brightness of the faces is adjusted optimally for beautiful portrait pictures.

Self Portrait
Using the face detection algorithm, the camera provides a confirmation notice through sound, if the face is detected within the certain area. Normally, it is difficult to position the face in the center of the image while taking a self shot. Now, it is easy to take a self shot using Self Portrait.

DIS (Digital Image Stabilization) Function
DIS technology prevents the degradation of image clarity and colour which is sometimes found in flash photography. With DIS the effects of image blur are reduced in lower light conditions.You can even take well exposed, sharper pictures in low light conditions without using a flash at all, which guarantees brighter and more natural pictures.

     Good camera at a very good price but beware.

    The camera does not come with everything you need. You will have to incurr additional costs for the memory card, rechargeable batteries and the battery charger. It also does not come with a case. The only way you will know this is by opening the box. When you do this you are not able to return the item.

     Great value and reasonable picture quality

    OK so for £50.00 you shouldn't expect much. But it aint bad! It does not have a huge number of features but as a simple point and click it works a treat.

    Comes supplied with Duracell Ultra batteries (2 x AA) and haven't had it long enough to advise on how long they will last. If you have a rechargables at your disposal I guess that will make sense in the long-run.

    You will need to buy a SD memory card as the on-board memory is pitifullly small (can only store 5 full size images). I got a 2GB card from playtrade for £4.30 delivered.

    If you are buying for the kids or just as a hand, keep in the pocket camera you won't be disappointed.

    The first unit I received had a fault but this was replaced without question and play.com arranged for the collection so no charge.

     Batteries

    This isn't a review, just a little advice on batteries. Most digital compact cameras have notoriously poor battery life when using standard alkaline batteries. It's due to the screen constantly running whilst taking pictures and other features such as zoom. To overcome this buy high capacity NIMH rechargeables such as the ones in the fameart half price kit when you buy this camera.

    I have used these batteries before, and the charger. If I'm correct and it's the same set it comes with 2300 mah batteries which will last around 4 times longer than alkaline batteries. On my old camera I tested the differance, I managed around 100 shots on alkaline and over 600 on the famearts before i got fed up. They do work and they are inexpensive so don't be put off.

    As for the camera, great spec and great price. I'm about to order mine.

     Quite Impressed

    Firstly I must point out I haven't used the camera as it is a Christmas gift for my parents. However based on appearance it looks great, light weight, small and all for less than £50. Ideal for their ski holiday next week.

     Excellent Value & Easy to use

    I have bought this camera for my mum for Xmas. I wanted a simple basic entry level digital camera, and this fulfils those requirements more than adequately. For under £50 I don't think you could get anything elsewhere as good in value.

    It's simple to use, and looks much more expensive than it is, being small & in an attractive black casing. I got the battery charger & camera case offer with it which again is great value from Play.com, as are the memory cards they sell. Thanks Play.com for making this Xmas very easy for me & my bank account !
