Samsung WB600 Review

 

The Samsung WB600 (also known as the Samsung HZ30W) is a 12 megapixel camera with a 15x, 24-360mm optically-stabilized lens and a large 3 inch LCD screen. The WB600 offers 720p HD video recording and an HDMI port for quick and easy playback on a High...

The Samsung WB600 adds two major features to its successor, namely a bigger 15x zoom and Aperture and Shutter priority shooting modes, whilst significantly reducing the price. The rather bulky design and unwanted noise at relatively slow ISO speeds...

Samsung WB600 Review

 

The Samsung WB600 promises to be a good mid-range camera with a feature-rich configuration. Although, its performance is quite disappointing in spite of the heavy hardware configuration and leaves a lot to be desired for a performance hungry user. The...

It is sleek, trendy and portable, Incorporates 24mm ultra-wide angle lens & 15x super-zoom control for taking tele-wide snaps, Adds support for 720p recording at a decent 30fps

Lacks depth of field and focus leading to blurred images, Interface is quite confusing and not user-friendly, Lack of image clarity with lot of sensor noise above ISO 200

Samsung WB600

 

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

Samsung WB600

 

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

The Samsung WB600's performance is marred by noise issues, which seems to be the biggest technical obstacle it faces and HD fans will be disappointed with the video quality overall. It is saved, however, but virtue of being excellent value for money....

Samsung WB600 review

 

Packing a 15x zoom lens, the WB600 compact camera offers seriously good value

Good manual mode ; Excellent image quality ; Super zoom lens

Not perfect ; Fiddly menu system

At first glance, the 12 megapixel Samsung WB600 doesn't look like a camera that particularly stands out from the crowd of mid-range compacts.

Slow shot-to-shot performance ; Average low light performance ; Slightly bulky

The compact zoom camera offers a wide angle lens with 15x optical zoom. It has good performance outdoors and average indoors. With its good pricing and good performance, it is one of the few compact zoom cameras available in the market.
