I am always a bit fearful about posting a camera deal if its more then £99, but sometimes it has a good result!

Anyway this is a cracking camera and £200 off original price and £90 cheaper for a limited time then most other places.

For anyone looking for a high quality but light and compact camera with interchangeable lens and full APS-C sensor.
There is also, arguably, the best camera screen on the back (in the form of Samsung's own OLED screen) and a EVF viewfinder. the camera also supports 720p HD video. it also has a built in flash rounding off a higher feature count then any other EVIL (electronic viewfinder interchangeable lens) camera at the moment.
The build quality also has to be seen. Just hold one in your local shop to see what I mean.

At the moment the competition in this fastest growing of camera markets is the Panasonic and Olympus 4/3s system, Samsung NX system and the Sony NEX system. The Sony & Samsung have APS-C sensors, so better dynamic range and ISo performance, but suffer from needing slighty bigger lenses due to the sensor size (nothing is for free).
Samsung also suffers in the UK by having a slightly lower profile then other camera makers, which is why you can get bargains like this
Samsung is committed to build up the system, with 3 lenses available and an adaptor for Pentax & Samsung DSLR lenses.

At this price this camera is a steal. Much better then buying a top of the range compact and excellent for those with professional DSLRs looking for something smaller when they don't feel like the weight or for holiday. DSLR users will particularly appreciate the handling.

Very good reviews, e.g.:

Great deal & great camera ; its better imho with the 30mm pancake lens as then it really is very compact & it has a built in viewfinder so better in my view than the olympus pen cameras...

I'm after a fixed lens APS-size camera for ages and waiting for the prices to come down. I've never felt a need for a zoom lens in my whole 45 year photographic life. Pitty the Samsung fixed lens is £100 more. The Olympus lens is only 35mm (equivalent) and the Pen hasn't got a built-in flash, which is at least another £150. This means waiting a bit longer

wow, 45 years
I have to admit that I have a FF DSLR. This was really to have a smaller camera as well, but one with reasonable picture quality.
After trying all the new small removable lens cameras, the Samsung was the only one with decent handling.
The Panasonic G2 is pretty good handling as well, but the 4/3s sensor is just not good enough, for me anyway!

I've had the Pen 1 and Panny G1 in my hand and I preferred the Olympus. I haven't handled the Samsung or the Sony yet. Looking forward to find out how they handle when I get a chance.

I agree about the 3/4 sensor.though.
