Samsung SMART Camera WB800F ( Black)

 

To those familiar with Samsung's point-and-shoot cameras, the Samsung WB800F Smart Camera might look a whole lot like Samsung's Android-powered Galaxy Camera .

The Samsung WB800F Smart Camera has excellent wireless features and an abundance of shooting options for all types of shooters. It has a handy pop-up flash and very good photo and video quality for its price and features.

Button placement on top of the camera could be better, and accessing some of the setting menus isn't always straightforward. Photo quality is merely OK above ISO 400.

A 21x zoom and a wealth of shooting options and wireless features make the Samsung WB800F Smart Camera a fine smartphone accessory.

Samsung WB800F

 

The Samsung WB800F packs a sharp 21x zoom lens and Wi-Fi, but some issues with image and video quality prevent it from getting top marks.

21x zoom lens. Wide-angle 23mm field of view. Sharp images. Integrated Wi-Fi. Touch-screen display.

Images suffer at high ISO settings. Not the sharpest LCD. Slightly bulky. Rolling shutter evident in video. In-camera battery charging only.

Performance and Conclusions The WB800F is speedy. It can start and take a shot in about 1.7 seconds and its shutter lag is a short 0.1-second. It can shoot at 7 or 3 frames per second, but at either speed it's limited to a 6-shot burst. You'll have to...

The Samsung WB800F is a 16 megapixel travel-zoom compact camera featuring built-in Wi-fi connectivity. The WB800F also offers a 21x optical zoom with a 23mm wide-angle setting and optical image stabilisation, 16.3 Megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor,...

Positioned as a cheaper alternative to the range-topping WB850F, the cheaper WB800F essentially removes the GPS of its big brother and swaps an AMOLED display for a touchscreen LCD. While we missed the GPS functionality, we actually preferred having...

Samsung WB800F Review

 

The Samsung WB800F is a long-zoom camera that follows on from last year's WB850F, and it shares a passing resemblance to that model, although its body has been redesigned from the ground up. Aimed at photographers who want a relatively compact camera...
