The Samsung CL65 digital camera works well in wind and rain as it uses several focus points and actually Made the rain blend in with the light which i thought was an excellent feature. However you can easily turn this on and of using the simple yet effective menu. But i was disappointed how this camera preformed in the sun because with the colour blend feature on it made everything much whiter and as soon as you zoomed it put of all the focus points because of the sun. So i wondered what would happen when i turned of this feature and looking down the menu i saw a feature with a sun picture beside it. I was very pleased with how the camera preformed. So all in all i think this is a good camera but i wouldn't recommend it as a first camera.
