Give Dad a Point And Shoot Camera For Father's Day

I am a lucky girl. Samsung sent me a point and shoot camera to try out for a month. It has been a really fun review.
This is the Samsung, SL420 series with 10.2 MP and a 5X optical zoom, a large screen and light weight this camera is great!
The features are second to none for a point and shoot under $180.00.
SAMSUNG’s perfect portrait system includes beauty shot, face detection, self portrait, smile shot, blink detection, and red-eye fix - everything you need to create beautiful photos effortlessly.
There is also a dual image stabilization. I tried making the shot blurry by moving the camera in this mode and I just couldn't do it. My 6 year old took perfect shots as well.
The Smart Auto feature automatically selects the best out of 11 scene modes for you depending on what you are shooting.
The Frame Guide lets you set the angle of the shot to compose the picture to your liking.
My absolute favorite feature is the beauty shot. I should never take another picture of myself without it. This feature automatically retouches any facial imperfections.
Here are some photos taken with the Samsung SL420 this month. Check out the beauty shot feature and the sunset feature created a beautiful image.
