The camera is good, but at times it fails to take pictures when in auto mode and the flash doesnt work. Anybody with the User guide and operational manual?

It takes very clear and good quality pictures but the battery life is terrible even with brands such as Duracell, it only lasts about 10 pictures when it shuts down. I'm going to purchase rechargeables and see if they are any better. It's got plenty features and is very easy to use. The only downside as I've mentioned is the battery life. Very cheap and good value for money. (read more)

I have had this camera for 2 years now and it has been very reliable and easy to use. I got it for about £60 and it is definately good value for money considering how much use I got out of the camera. The only downside to he camera was the battery life, I would always need to carry a spare set with me. However the flash has suddenly stopped working and now I can only use the camera for videos and outdoor pictures. I always got very clear pictures. I would recommend this camera to any... (read more)

I bought this camera in the middle of 2008.
The camera worked perfectly and was always easy to use. The picture editing software on the camera itself was also a bonus, although I seldom used it having Photoshop on my PC.
Unfortunately a couple of months ago it started to 'spaz' out when trying to shoot with the flash and I am now unable to use the camera for anything other than videos.
The strange thing is, my housemate also has the same model of camera, but in another colour and she has... (read more)

i realy like the D75, ive had it for a long time, i also own the D73, wich although seamd to have more colour in video mode outdoor, the D75 seam'd to handle colours indoors better, its main downside its the power consumption because it clearly says on the sticker 3.3v
and its prity clear that AA batteries are 1.5, to wich it takes 2
2 1.3 = 3.0 (not 3.3) so they messed up their

I have one of these cameras now for over a year, it as been a good one for taking photos outdoors, inside using flash, but rubish in a lighted room not using the flash as 6 times out of 10 photos are over exposed and colouring is messed up and pixels in dark places in the photo. so if your planning using indoors without the flash forget it. only notice this as i have started stop motion animation and can't use a flash. The batteries die fash so get a good set of rechargables. But all round a... (read more)

I actually got my d75 second hand, and it's a lot better than I thought it would be, there are a lot of good features on this camera and the pictures come out great. The video feature isn't so good, but what do you expect from a camera that doesn't cost the Earth? It's small and looks good, and I've knocked it around a few times and it still works fine. It does kind of lie about how long batteries last though... If you take them out when they're supposedly drained and then put them back in... (read more)

Samsung D75 is an ok basic camera which for the price is adequate in all area's except battery life. The quality of the 7MP pictures is clear and crisp with great point and shoot pictures, however when flash is required it takes a long time to process the picture. Many options through the menu to fully personalize the camera's characteristics and the easy to use set-up menu's are a positive. I find the video camera very grainy and drains the battery as does the ASR (Anti-shake reduction)... (read more)

Great quality photo's and easy to use. A previous review claims it 'eats batteries'. Not true if you use the correct type of battery, i.e. AA rechargeable at 2500 mAh capacity or better. Any digital camera will have a high usage with ordinary (non rechargeable) batteries, or with rechargeable batteries of less than 2500 mAh (read more)

Lightweight, very nice crisp and clear lcd, good quality images that can be enlarged. Feels a little cheap because its plastic, but having said that, it's lighter than a metal equivalent and dare I say more robust. Perfect for someone who is going to use it and not sit there polishing it! Great camera, great pictures and very very good on automatic mode. (read more)

The Samsung D75 is an unreliable camera.
However, if you can live with having to reinsert the batteries every now and again it performs pretty well for it's price. I mostly use it for macro photos and they come out perfectly.
Incidentally, the batteries it comes supplied with are absolute garbage, I believe the ones I had were so-called "Duracell ultras" made in the east.
They lasted for all of a couple of minutes.
Bought a pack of four rechargeable 2300mAh Duracell's and they last ages. (read more)

Comments about batteries seem a little unfair and caused me worry! But I have used the Samsung with 2100 ni-mh battery's from Lidles (1.99) and made over 50 7mp shots fine mode (some with flash) and still going good!

Aside from the above bad points, this camera is worth £46, I paid £70 for my one less than 6 months ago at Argos.
With the lock ups I found that if you take the batteries out for a minute or so wait then put them back in, it will turn on again, just be careful if the lens is still out.
Battery life is ok as long as you have rechargeable batteries, I wouldn't even bother trying to use normal AA's, and if you are one of those cheap £1 shop for 100 batteries people you wouldn't even get the... (read more)

When it comes to the Samsung D75 battery life, indeed for some reason it is a mockery on alkalines. Doesn't matter if you set your camera to battery type ALKALINE or Ni-MH. What's more if the camera displays BATTERY LOW and you take alkalines out and check them on a multimeter they are not drained, they're fine. Weird isn't it? But put re-chargeable ones into your camera and everything is spot on. Don't buy rechargeable batteries different to Ni-MH type (eg Ni-Cd type will not work good). If... (read more)

I too bought one of these cameras from Argos at £46 as a work backup and couldn't believe the features you got for the money. However, on the downside there are two major issues with the camera: 1) Within a day I, like two other reviewers here, have had camera lock-ups where the camera ceases to function or even turn off. The only way around this is to remove the batteries & re-insert them. I'm assuming this is a firmware issue and am currently a/w a response from Samsung UK. 2) It can't be... (read more)

Great little camera lots of fun for such a low price. Easy to use, useful video function for spontaneous family shots. Compact - I keep mine in my bum bag! Have got lots of candid shots that I would not have taken if I had relied on my bulky Nikon SLR. Although it takes a while to store image after taking so have to be patient. Battery life poor on Duracells so best to use 2500mAh rechargeable - then no problem. (read more)

Had three of these cameras from Argos in the past seven days and have all been returned for a refund. When first using the camera everything was fine till I got up to around 60-70 shots, then when using the flash, the camera would just freeze after taking a photo, lens extended, info on screen but no matter how many buttons I pressed nothing happened.
The only way to get it working again was to pop the batteries out and re-insert them. Looks like it may be a faulty component that gives up... (read more)

What is the point of selling a camera that can only take 7 pictures unless of course you go out and spend at least another 15 pounds for a memory card, not only that, you are going to spend a fortune on batteries too so I see it as a complete waste of time.
