Samsung WB500 Digital camera review

 

Samsung did not really stand out during Photokina 2008. For Samsung, this huge 2-year event, giving the visitor the opportunity to smell, taste and see photography all around, seemed to be a show where only the Samsung prototype camera (now called...

The Samsung WB500 is the world's first mega zoom camera providing a 24mm wide angle zoom and a total range of 10x. This is quite an achievement when it comes to optics. Samsung has not been easy on itself. The specifications are appealing, although the...

Samsung WB500 compact camera

 

Samsung\'s 10 megapixel WB500 might not be the worlds most stylish camera, but its plain black body hides some very interesting features. For one it contains a SchneiderKreuznach lens with a super 10x optical zoom.

wideangle and 10x optical zoom, Beauty Shot is interesting

Not very userfriendly, flash is inconveniently placed, noise on video recording

Very good for distance photography as demonstrated on a recent safari.

Very short battery life and battery can only be re-charged in the camera so a spare battery doesn't really solve the problem. Very poor handbook therefore one needs to download about 100 pages!

Easy to use functionality and superb picture quality. Perfect for slipping into your jacket on nights out or for popping into the wife's handbag. Excellent value for money and worth every penny

No real bad points that i can think of.......

Excellent lens, viewing screen and all round performance. A lot of camera for the money. Probably too good a camera for my current level of digital photographic ability!

Not really a bad point but camera turned out to be larger than I had expected. It's only just "pocket sized". Check dimensions before buying!

would be nice to get instructions in the box and not have to print off 100+ pages.Also a carry case would be nice if offered at the purchase
