Some sites will glorify a particular digital camera because they could be getting a kickback of some sorts. Other than getting the specs from the box, I wonder if the camera was actually used or tested.
My store recently received in our shipment a couple of Samsung cameras. Until that day, I never used a samsung digital camera before. I was quite eager to fire it up and check out the specs.
The first thing I usually do is look at the box. Honestly, if the box is too plain then maybe the camera could be too. Happy to say the box looked good with bright sample pictures and of course the camera. After opening the box, Samsung did a nice job with packaging each item and not cramming everything in one slot. So far so good.
Finally, I get to the camera, put the battery in (2 AA) and proceeded to turn it on. Start up time was very slow. Screen resolution was some what clear but I've seen better on a casio digital camera. The zooming in and out was very slow and the overall feel of this camera made me think that it was "rushed" off the assembly line.
Picture quality was good under bright light but did not like the greenish tint under fluorescent lighting conditions even with the specific white balance set to fluorescent lighting. This camera does offer significant features for the price but I would make sure to try it out first before following any recommendations from any website.
On a last note, think of it this way. Would you buy a car online with out test driving it? If so, I have a Yugo in good condition : )
