Samsung digital cameras are not very popular in the USA.
They seem to do pretty well in Europe.
The two best known digital camera reviewers (in USA) seldom will review a Samsung camera. Their reviews of past Samsung cameras have always been more negative than positive.
I would advise that you make sure that you can return the camera for a full refund if you find it unsatisfactory.
I saw a lot of sites with good reviews about S700 though CNet had no reviews about this camera. The specifications seem to pack a punch in this unit.. But no body seems to talk about the quality of the pictures coz that what really matters to me.. Please give your review on this camera..
