Samsung SL620 First Impressions Digital Camera Review$199.99
The SL620 is an average-looking point-and-shoot. It's a small, credit card-sized camera, its lens retracts when not in use, it has an LCD screen in lieu of a true viewfinder, and basic controls. This particular camera was a metallic pink.
The front of the SL620 is pretty unremarkable. You have the branding next to the autofocus assist, the extending lens, and a flash. It has some of its finer points branded on its lower left and right corners. All in all, the SL620 adheres to the classic point-and-shoot design.
The back of the SL620 again has, standard point-and-shoot all over the place. The LCD takes up the bulk of the real estate, with the controls lining the right side. That switch-looking control on top is actually a zoom toggle, below which is the control dial. Typically point-and-shoots have a zoom ring around their shutter button and the control dial is also an top of the device. The rest of the controls are regulars, however: menu button, four-way controller, playback button, and function button.
The left side of the SL620 doens't have any interesting features. The right has the camera's proprietary USB port and a lanyard loop.
The top of the camera has the power and shutter buttons. Those three circles between them is the camera's microphone.
The bottom of the SL620 has two main features: the battery and memory card cavity, and the tripod socket. There's also a little diagram to remind you not to throw the camera away.
