I thought I got a great deal


I got this on sale for $220 several months back. I thought I was getting a great deal, as I was spending more than average $120-150 for point-and-shoot cameras. I also had good experience with a different camera of the same brand before and believed in...

Good camera


I mainly wanted a camera that could zoom but still take clear pictures and this did it!!! At 18x I still get amazing pics!!! The only reason it didn't get a perfect score is because the dial pad is way too sensitive. Other than that I'm happy with my...

Big Disapointment, Average to fair performer


Picture quality and construction is good but functionality and systems are poor. The camera constantly tries to manually change modes, when the mode dial is in smart mode. The dial is so sensitive if you barely graze your finger on the dial it tries to...

A great deal for your money


I purchased a WB700 to augment my Samsung EX1. I carry it in my pocket always and am surprised at the number of times I have used it. The great value of a true compact is that you catch scenes and events often missed due to the absence at times of more...

Samsung WB700 review


The "travel zoom" market - meaning pocket compacts with extended lens reaches beyond, let's now say, 8x or more - has really taken off in recent years, with Panasonic's all-conquering Lumix TZ series, and recent TZ20 iteration, leading the pack....

Expansive focal range in a compact chassis, affordable, easy to use, one touch video recording, HDMI output port, collection of manual shooting settings

Uninspiring black boxy design, no Full HD video

This is a fuss free way for those on a smaller budget to get that must-have big zoom on a pocket camera. OK, so it may not be the most elegant looking camera ever nor does it have the top end specs like Full HD video, but for the price we have very few...

Samsung WB700 review


The WB700 is an update to the Samsung WB600, an impressive compact ultra-zoom camera that undercut its competitors on price without compromising image quality.

Comprehensive manual controls and a generous 18x zoom, but it can't compete for image quality or performance
