Child Mode features an animation that helps keep young people focused. Additionally, a visual Self Timer simplifies the process of putting yourself in the picture. Other fun and useful features include Magic Frame, which has 12 neat background templates and also gives you the ability to produce poster-quality art, great for sharing or hanging on the wall. The Picture-in-Picture function enables you to insert an image within another.

            It's a gift for my sister so I haven't tried it out yet unfortunately, but I really like the dual screen function, even though some people say the front screen can take blurry pictures.

            I have a DSLR Sony but I wanted something that was smaller that I could carry around when I didn't want to take my big camera with me. This camera is fantastic! All kinds of cool shoot modes and the built in WiFi is awesome! Could use a little updating on the apps but is super cool that you can put the camera somewhere else and use your app to take a picture. Love the front screen as well.

            Also used it when I was out at night and it took amazing pictures in low light. I've had a lot of digital cameras and I couldn't say I could describe very many of them like that.

            This camera is really easy to use, just follow the instructions. I really like that you can instantly post pictures to social media sites or email them. I mean as long as you have a WiFi signal you can pretty much do anything you want on it! Takes a little long in between pictures to shoot again sometimes but for the most part its not that bad. I am not really picky but my wife is and she loves it.

                  The camera is intuitive and easy to handle. I absolutely love the dual view. It is certainly a great conversation piece too. I mainly use it for pleasure, but I since I am a yearbook advisor, I take photos for work as well. The reason I didn't give it a 5 star was due to the flap for the battery/film card - several times I it came open accidentally (it's a slide lock). The battery and film card did not come out, but I could see myself easily breaking it off. I also haven't had time to check out all the features, but it seems to be operationally well made. I have been able to send images to FB and email friends as long as there is free WiFi which is a cool feature. I just wish I could add a comment with images on FB.

                    Comments about DV300F Digital DualView Camera (Black):

                    I've owned this camera for about 3 weeks now, and as much as I do like it, I'm going to be returning it.

                    The one major reason for my decision to return, is that the battery is awful. It does not hold a charge at all! There have been two occasions where I've taken the camera out of it's case, and I couldn't even turn it on because the battery was dead. The odd part about it is that I never got a low battery warning!

                    I know for sure that I turned the camera off prior to placing it in its case, but for some reason, the battery died anyway. It's just so odd, because the few occasions when I've used it, I've only taken 5-10 pictures at most. I quickly learned that I have to charge this camera before every use.

                    It's disappointing, because I do believe that Samsung is the ONLY brand that has cameras with duel LCDs, which is what sold me on the item in the first place.

                    I have to say, though, that there were a few other bells and whistles that sold me on the product initially. I liked the fact that it has Wi-Fi, so you can email photos and upload photos to sites such as Facebook and Flickr, however I realized that I will NEVER use these functions. I edit almost all of my photos in Photoshop and/or Lightroom before I share them, so as much as its a great feature for some, it's not necessary for my purposes.

                    I should also mention that, although I didnt take too many photos with the camera, the picture quality is just average. I would expect the same quality from any point-and-shoot cameras currently on the market.

                    I rated this product a 2, because what good is a camera if the battery is dead and you cant use it?

                      At B&H for 25% off. Bought the kit for my mom who is a grandma of two. Upgrade from her Canon SD powershot. The best features for us so far are:

                      our Pros:
                      -Light weight
                      -thinner than Canon SD powershots
                      -children cartoons in front and can add music playing
                      -do not need to remove microSD. plug the camera into computer. Just remove the wall prong end of the charger and the same chord can be plugged into the computer.
                      -do not need to remove battery. Just plug in the charger into the wall and the chord into the camera.
                      -you can even charge the camera while it's in the provided case.
                      -to add more photo space, we set to 10M, which can fit 1,250 pictures with the 4G included.
                      -If you distance yourself enough, the flash can produce good vibrant colors in auto mode (here auto mode is called Smart mode).
                      -w/o flash, the colors via auto mode are pretty vibrant and accurate. Not too orange or blue, etc.
                      -there's is a dedicated button on top jsut to turn on the lcd in front.
                      -very colorful menu whose options look like iphone app icons. it's not touchscreen as far as i know. other cameras are jsut simple white text menus.

                      Con:
                      -switching from Photo-Video-Children mode is not in one menu. You have to go through tiny menu tabs that are only text. Not as intuitive, but one can get used to it. I was expecting a simpler menu or a switch that goes from photo to video at least. you need to go to the menu to go from photo to video to other modes. Seems like it's market was aimed towards teens and mothers of children.

                      There are many other features we don't need like wi-fi, emailing directly from the camera, tranfering photos from camera to smartphone wirelessly, panoramic merge, color magic, fun distortions, but for our use, it's perfect and great price. So that's why i'd give it a 5 star.

                      This kit comes in ONE box, not separate boxes like one for the camera, one for the SD card, one for the pouch. The kit is shrinkwrapped in one Samsung box. So that you can wrap as a single gift.

                      other than the semi-intuitive menu, this is packed with more features than we need.
