Samsung WB600


The Samsung WB600 doesn't spell much of a difference with the previously released WB550. Sporting almost the same look and features, the WB600s major difference lies in its enhanced zoom capabilities. In contrast to the WB550 the former touts a...

The Samsung WB600 can be well considered an above average camera that comes packed with a mighty zoom lens packed in a rather small body. So if I am not wrong this currently makes it the most compact 15x camera currently in the market. Moreover the IS...

Nice Camera


The Samsung HZ30W Digital Camera is a nice smaller camera. It makes great pictures and is very simple to use. So far I have found the battery life to be very good - but I have only owned the camera for a short period of time. I personally feel that...

I bought this camera based on a recommendation of a friend. I noticed he always showing us great printed pictures. I was lucky it was on sale during that time. I have been using it since then. It is very simple to use and it gives me great pictures. I...

easy to use


I bought this camera for my son's 14th birthday. He loved the look of it. Then he started using it and he was able to figure it out easily. This is his first digital camera and the pictures he has taken have all come out nice.

Samsung WB600 digital camera


The Samsung WB600 is an affordable digital camera that packs a host of interesting and useful features. It has a 1/2.3 CCD sensor packing 12 megapixel...

Very good outdoor performance, 24mm wide angle lens, 15x optical zoom, dual image stabilisation

Slow shot-to-shot performance, average low light performance, slightly bulky

The Samsung WB600 digital camera offers a wide angle lens with 15x optical zoom. It performs well outdoors and delivers an average indoors performance.

Samsung WB600 review


Packing a 15x zoom lens, the WB600 is seriously good value

Good manual mode ; Excellent image quality ; Suer zoom lens

Not erfect ; Fiddly menu system

Performance is excellent, and if you can stand the low resolution images, the 6fps burst mode is better than just about any other compact we can name, and definitely faster than any low-end DSLRs.

Samsung WB600 review


The humble compact camera category seems to be under assault. At the high end you have hybrid cameras offering imaging power with svelte dimensions, at the bottom end you have increasingly sophisticated camera phones. The result is a need for...

Wide zoom, shooting effects, build quality (except the mode dial is a little too easy to knock around), value for money

Noise issues, auto white balance throws out some cold images, HD video is soft, dark corners at wide angles

Pitched as a travel companion, there are better cameras out there, but we can't argue with the value for money that it represents for what is a wide range of functionality

With a 15x optical zoom packed into its relatively compact body, this is a great low cost 'travel zoom'.

Good quality 15x optical zoom ; Great value for money ; Manual exposure controls

Slightly thicker than some rivals ; Images are noisy even at low ISO ; Audio drops out in video

Available in black, brown or silvery grey, we had the latter in for testing, which looks a bit drab at first glance. Still, the build quality is solid, despite a plastic construction and easily belies its modest price. A curved edge to the left hand...
