Use that to adjust your settings. Another cool Samsung feature is the blue mode most models have - that helps you adjust your color levels.

If you have a DVD burner and a bluray player thats probably the best way. You can burn that disc onto a DVD, but your player will read it as a high def bluray. The bluray version contains a good segment from HD Nation about how to use the test patterns.

The MP4 files are the same thing, but it doesnt include the "how to" video. You can use those on a thumb drive in a bluray player or game console. I keep them on my phone because I'm a weirdo and like screwing with my friends televisions.

This is to be listed at $480 at some point next week.


Bev, is the 55" going to be listed at $480? on amazon? I'm all over that if that's the case. Thanks...

Is this a decent camera for $100.00? Would it be any better than the 16mp point & shoot digital camera we already have?

Do you currently have video capability on yours?

What is the zoom on your current model?

I'm leery of the need for 4 AA batteries. I prefer the chargeable batteries. (NI-Cad or Lith-Ion?)

Has anyone ever done the "1 Hour In Stock Guarantee" from WalMart?

Trying to get the laptop and the iPad Mini on Thursday night at 6PM and would like some details.

Can I just stroll up there at 5:30 and wait in line?

Show up at 6:30 and get a voucher if they are all gone?

Its pretty shocking to me that there are cameras that don't use rechargeable batteries.

According to my wife, if you are in line at the time it ends, you will get the ticket. The ticket is some sort of gift card that you activate online and it allows you to purchase the item.

Our current camera is no more than 5x zoom and as far as video goes it does it but we don't really use that feature.

They are popular with moms. If you're on your way out the door and you realize the camera battery is dead/dying would you rather have to find an outlet to charge it or stop in store quickly in pick up new ones?

I usually get an extra battery to always have one charged.

This will be $69.99($100.00 off) starting tomorrow night at 8:00 at Target. Do you think this will be a hot item this year? This looks like the one item me and the wife want to get this year for kids. I just don't know if its the kind of thing you have to wait in line for before the store opens kind of item.

Best Buy jumped WalMart and offered the iPad mini with $100 gift card this morning.

One more gift down. Nice.
