Samsung WB150F Review


The fact that travel compact cameras are now a common sight does not come across as a surprise. Practically, all camera manufacturers have released their own model and are in the process of pushing the envelope further, as far as optical zoom lenses...

The Samsung WB150F is a mixed bag. It does decent in design, excellently in build quality, extremely well in features, but not that great when it comes to the overall performance. This camera has been designed for travelers who do not want to spend too...

Samsung WB150F


As digital cameras see their role taken over by smartphones and their quickly improving imaging abilities, there's clearly a need to some innovation here. With the WB150F, Samsung is attempting to bring cameras up to consumers' connected expectations,...

Nice looking, sturdy body ; Wi-Fi is easy to set up, effective ; Nice, intuitive UI and settings navigation ; Tons of features

Can’t push ISO high ; Doesn’t perform great in low light without flash ; Video is adequate at best

If you aren’t looking at professional-level compact performance, but want a point-and-shoot – particularly one that’s hitting the connected ground running – then look no further.

Samsung WB150F Review: A Pocket Megazoom With Built-In Wi-Fi


One of three Wi-Fi-enabled Samsung cameras announced at this year's CES, the WB150F ($230 as of April 26, 2012) brings connected features into the realm of pocket megazooms with an 18X-optical-zoom lens that ranges from 24mm wide-angle to 432mm...

18X optical zoom lens (24mm to 432mm) ; Built-in sharing via Wi-Fi ; Good mix of creative shooting modes

No high-speed or low-light modes ; Hard to access and adjust manual controls ; Video capture maxes out at 720p

The 18X-optical-zoom, Wi-Fi-enabled Samsung WB150F has a nice mix of creative modes for casual shooters, but its manual controls require a bit too much menu-diving.

Samsung WB150F


It's not perfect, but the nicely priced compact Samsung WB150F camera packs a sharp 18x zoom lens and integrated Wi-Fi so you can email or upload your pics to Facebook easily.

Built-in Wi-Fi. Sharp lens. 18x zoom. Compact design. Inexpensive

Slow performance. Noisy images at higher ISOs. Video capture is limited to 720p

One area in which the WB150F lags a bit behind the competition is speed. The camera requires 3.8 seconds to start and take a shot, makes you wait 1.5 seconds between photos, and manages a 0.4 second shutter lag. Another 18x Samsung camera, the WB750...

Samsung WB150F (Black)


While camera manufacturers like Sony, Panasonic, and Canon are dabbling in Wi-Fi cameras, Samsung's really invested in the concept for 2012, offering four cameras with a big helping of wireless functionality. Included in those models is the WB150F...

The Samsung WB150F has built-in Wi-Fi that's easily set up for wireless sharing and backup. It has an abundant set of shooting and editing options.

Samsung's smartphone apps are only guaranteed to work with Samsung Galaxy devices and its autobackup software is Windows-only. The camera's photo quality is barely better than a smartphone's and its shooting performance is somewhat slow.

If you're happy with the photos from your smartphone, but wish you had an actual camera with a long zoom lens and wireless sharing and backup, check out the Samsung WB150F.

Samsung WB150FDigital Camera Review


Samsung's new WB150F combines two very trendy technologies currently sweeping the imaging world: impossibly long zoom, and Wi-Fi connectivity. But when manufacturers do this, especially at the low end, there's a tendency for gimmickry to overpower...

There are plenty of better options out there than the Samsung WB150F. And many of them were released sufficiently long ago that street prices will equal Samsung’s aggressive MSRP. For almost every feature, every one of our lab tests, and indeed every...

Samsung WB150FFirst Impressions Review


Even as the lesser of Samsung's two new compact superzooms unveiled at CES, the WB150F is no slouch—it's a lot like last year's WB750, but with WiFi and a much lower price tag.

Even as the lesser of Samsung’s two new superzooms, the WB150F holds a certain appeal. When the dust settles on the announcement season, we’ll bet that at $229, it’s the year’s cheapest compact with such a long zoom. Then there’s the Smart WiFi system,...

Samsung WB150F Preview


Samsung unveiled six new Wi-Fi enabled cameras at CES 2012 for the new year; the WB850F, WB150F, and ST200F. The WB150F is a compact super-zoom that boasts a serious zoom range thanks to its 18x optical zoom lens. It also boasts a 14-megapixels of...

Samsung WB150F Camera Review


Image quality that you expect with unmatched innovation in features. WiFi, anyone?

Strong and appealing design; Accessible interface; Built-in WiFi is very handy and innovative; Long zoom lens; Manual controls

Decent but unremarkable image quality; Low light delivers fair amount of noise; Sometimes sluggish interface

Special mention has to be given to the creative filters that this camera packs, which is a new thing that cameras like to do for the casual users and Samsung kicks it up a notch with a wide selection. There’s stuff like Sketch, Oil Painting, Cartoon,...

Samsung WB150F Review: Share and Share Alike


The Samsung WB150F has two primary attractions on a very lengthy list of advanced features. It carries an 18x Schneider-Kreuznach optical zoom lens, covering a range equivalent to 24-432mm in 35mm terms. It also offers wireless photo uploading. This it...

Big 18x optical zoom lens ; Manual exposure modes ; In-camera art modes ; Excellent Wi-Fi features

Noise at ISO 400 and up ; Only 720p video ; More clipped highlights than usual

s In my own view, it's becoming increasingly unacceptable for point-and-shoot cameras not to offer wireless connectivity. Better even is the option to transfer photos from your camera to a phone or tablet. The WB150F offers both of these things, and...
