1/60th at 200mm is quite reasonable, as it assumes 2 stops of stabilization. This lens goes further than 200mm eq, though. It would be hard to hand-hold the tele end at anything slower than say 1/125.

No, he's actually quite right, I'm just going to assume you don't understand exposure.

It doesn't have a real viewfinder and it's just another POS....not shoot, but it.
Photoslop doesn't make you a photographer, and the lens rating stuff is nonsense.
Give it to granma for Xmas.
You are clearly biased and your opinon seems to have has no basis in fact. Samsung is the largest conglomerate in the world, and has been making stuff for 70 years. I'm guessing you have an unfortunate anecdote to relay. Samsung definitely was a bargain basement brand, but unless you've been living under a rock, their brand recognition (and quality) in the areas of LCD/LEDs and mobile phones has skyrocketed, and the cameras have been progressing rapidly. More important than appearances, their high end compact cameras have gone from very average to near the top of the heap in less than two years. If you buy a compact camera, the sensor was probably either produced Sony or Samsung (Kodak's mediocre consumer-level offers notwithstanding).
How is objective review nonsense? This is only a POS in the sense that every point-and-shoot is crap in comparison to something with a 4/3 or larger. An OVF useless with this sort of camera unless you have a pentaprism, and I'd really like to see a compact with these specs that actually includes a large, lear OVF with decent coverage. I'm not counting hotshoe ones. It doesn't happen anymore.
Your suggestion that Photoshop does not make someone a photographer seems to come out of nowhere, although it's quite right. A camera makes one a photographer.
Things may be rather smarmy around here, but they are mature for the most part. Take your trolling elsewhere.
