Just as closedown to this thread for anyone seaching re the Samsung, not the worlds greatest dragonfly photo but i thought i would post anyway - those who have ever tried to photograph a dragonfly in flight will appreciate the challenge. in this instant, I got the wing muscles in focus, rather than the head.

It was quite a bright day, the dragonfly kept landing on a wooden fence, I pointed the camera just above the fence to try and capture either lift of or return landing. The background has not been touched. This is a heavy crop and has been sharpened, no other PP.

Shot with Samsung GX 1L at 1/1500 at f5.6 ISO 400on the 55 - 200mm kit lens. The shot makes an interestin 7 x 5 print and will encourageme return to the field to get a better capture.
