Good: being able to transfer pics to an android device via wifi
Bad: picture quality,sharpness, blurry images awkward zoom function
Comment: I bought this camera in the spare of the moment. As the wifi and size of the zoom impressed me and my old camera although still usable was hard to use as the brackets on the battery/sd card had broken away.my preious samsung camera,the S1030 was my first digital camera and the quality and sharpness of the pictures was excellent. it was perfect
the same cant be said for the WB150f. I have the same issue as mentioned by the reviewer ie one side of the pictures are out of focus and blurry but instead of it being the right side its always on the left. This is when pictures were taken in smart mode. its not so noticable when looking at the pictures on a smart phone but very noticable when on a laptop size screen and even more so when they are printed out. its very annoying and disapointing spending such an amount on a camera that maybe for some ok but in comparision to my old camera is of very poor quality. i expected better from samsung.
can anyone advise re the blured pictures. im going to try it in programe mode and set the focus to center rather than the multi parts of the screen function that appears to be used in smart mode.unfortunatly you dont know how good its worked ubtil you have taken those important holiday shots etc
Good: Excellent zoom, Great Price, Good Image Stabilizer
Bad: No touch screen, Slow Auto-focus especially in video, bad video quality; should be full HD
Comment: I got this product in a rush before I went on a holiday. I was waiting to buy a Nikon D5200 and, as a result, did not do any research on compact cameras. Excellent camera nonetheless and definitely worth looking at. The WB250F has already been and has fixed all these issues. Samsung has really picked up their game!
Good: seems to have good build quality
Bad: unreliable, very bad service, no refund although on guarantee
Comment: After 6 months i own it the screen messed up without ever throwing or hitting it. The camera had no scratch.
The service told me that the camera is broken and the guarantee doesn't cover it.
I'm saying again that the camera had no scratch and always kept in special g shock bag.
I also have a new Samsung smart TV and i am very afraid in case of malfunction the guarantee is nothing. I will never rely from now on Samsung's Guarantee.
The picture quality is not very satisfactory also.
Good: Excellent image quality and color, great manual mode, smart auto works fine.
Bad: Focus failure, especially in the mode movie.
Comment: Samsung wb150f is a great camera for a price decent.Have manual controls aplenty, shooting excellently well in low light, produces films reasonable (not disappoint.) To use the zoom advise, not only for her but for all compact in general, the use of a tripod.I certainly recommend this camera to a friend.A great compact camera.
Good: Massive amount of settings and useful wifi options
Bad: can be time consuming to set up shots through the menus (this is the same for all cameras except touch screens)
Comment: Bought this camera 1 month ago and have great fun playing with it. I even bought a set of 3 slr filters ; i would definately recommend the polarising filter and they only cost £6 for the lot from amazon.
The best thing is Nik Rawlinsons 50 top tips to get the best out of this snapper. Thanks
Comment: This is available for £100 now. Look around I am refering to the Wifi model.
Comment: I read another review of this camera and they indicated that "Optical zoom is available while recording 720p videos with mono sound" - do you mind shedding a light on the "mono sound" aspect?
Thanks very much. I'm debating which camera to get, either this or the Olympus SZ 12/14.
Good: WiFi features. can link wirelessly to my phone and save them onto it easy
Bad: screen resolution. you won't see the quality on the camera screen.
Comment: Pictures look amazing on my phone. Wish I had excuses to take more pictures. I got it for £150 from pc world. It looks so nice in white too!
Comment: Any idea's how this compares to the Cooplix S8200? They are both well-rated on the site and superzoom's and I'd like to pick one up for a holiday in April. Any thoughts as to how they stack up?
Comment: Sorry to undermine your investigative work tuxtester, but I've looked into this and the price we've listed is correct.
