Opinions on this camera, the Samsung DIGIMAX PRO 815 DIGITAL CAMERA

I've had one for a couple of weeks now currently using it to photograph and film a promotional project for work :smashin:

Heres a couple of example images I took at the Science Museum and Hatton Cross Approach way to Heathrow



Currently using the camera with a 4gb microdrive, which provides insane capacity... only prob I have seen is the autofocus hunts to much near the end of the zoom but its often quicker to switch to manual focus at that range of zoom anyway. the extra top lcd screen is very useful for composing certain shots where the viewfinder or main screen are in awkward position given camera angle :cool:

What is the shutter speed like, having tried to locate reviews online, a couple of people have said that the shutter is slow and can cause image shake.

Thanks for the link. Confirms what other consumers have said. Lag seems to be the main issue here and as someone who likes to shoot a lot of quick fire shots without the steadiest of hands from time to time I will probably discount this machine. To be honest, I was walking past a camera shop in town and I saw it in the window, hence the research.
