Excellent. I will never, ever complain about Snapsort's response time again!

Fixed!

Cool!  I've updated the Sony W510 and W520, should appear on the site later today, thanks again.  We try to get all corrections in, but once and a while things get busy.

Wow, what a response, thanks I take back my aspersions wholeheartedly! The only other two I can recall at the moment are the Sony w510 and w520, both of which you say have optical image stabilisation, but they both have digital only (which does nothing). I posted corrections a few weeks ago without registering and I thought my comments were acepted at the time, but they don't appear to be there now, so if I have maligned you unfairly, I apologise.
Andy.

Thanks for pointing that out Trulyhealth and Andyken, I've fixed the spec, it should be on the site later today.  Our apologies for ignoring other corrections, if you remember what they are I'll get to them today!

I was going to post the same thing, but I don't know why, I've posted several corrections to other listings to Snapsort, all of which have been ignored!

CAN YOU TAKE PANAROMA SCENES?

found the fill flash to be less than expected.  Does not seem to brighten up faces in the shadows

As per Samsung website, this camera does NOT saves images in RAW format.

Took it on a 15 day trip to the british isle. 700 shots . i love the touch screen . Bought at Costco on special. Great pictures

I think you missed some points.  The camera has a 21mm super wide angle lens so it is capable of taking wide angle photos that other cameras would have to stitch the photos together to get the same shot, so a panorama mode is not needed.  The quality of the lens is outstanding.  The 210 has a HD movie mode as well as a Standard Definition movie mode.  I find the camera takes excellent photos in very low light situations.  In fact I own a $5K digital camera with an $860 wide angle lens and top of the line flash.  Most of the time I leave the big SLR at home because this little shirt pocket camera will do the job just fine.  At the present it's a bargain at Costco.

Samsung WB210 is currently on sale at Costco for $200 including a case and a 4 GB micro SD card.

Samsung WB210 wider 12x optical zoom satisfyingly able to captures the long-range subjects easily at a fast speed. With the more user friendly approach like of a smart phone, this DSC integrates easy-to-operate touch-screen menus and functions.

This actually has a movie mode. Here's the specs for the camera:
