Manufacturer's Description

WB2000
Stunning photos made easy

Samsung introduces a compact camera that is designed to take beautiful looking photos, with the convenience of a lightweight body. It delivers all of the advanced features of a professional-grade camera taking 10 megapixel photos, along with the ability to shoot Full HD videos.

Full-size Dual Capture (1080p Movie + 10 MP Photo)

The Samsung WB2000 takes high-speed imaging to a new level with its full-size dual capture capabilities. No longer will you have to change devices, or even switch modes to shoot high-resolution stills and video. With the WB2000 you can record Full HD video (1920x1080p) and even use the 5x optical zoom while shooting. Simultaneously, you can shoot 10 megapixel photos of whatever you are recording. When taking the stills, they appear as thumbnails at the bottom of the display so you can see what you've shot. For videos, the thumbnails are used as visual cues so you can quickly find the video you're looking for. What makes this all possible is Samsung's Innovative engine which allows the WB2000's high-speed CMOS sensor to process all of this data in real time. That way, you can shoot and save HD videos and stills all at the same time.

Full HD 1080p Movie Recording

Incorporating a 10 megapixel high speed CMOS sensor with the latest technology, the Samsung WB2000 compact camera can campture impressive 1920x1080p high-definition video. Another key benefit of the advanced CMOS sensor is that it enables the WB2000 to record high-definition video that's crystal clear, even under low-light conditions. So you can record the rich and vibrant colours of real life without missing any of the details.

The H.264 compressed format has a recording time that is longer than MJPEG video so you don't have to worry if the ball game goes into extra innings. Plus, the exceptional clarity of the built-in stereo microphone will complement the vivid HD video shot from the WB2000. Then you can even share your creativity by connecting the WB2000 to any HDTV or HD monitor with an HDMI cable, and watch it in full high-definition detail.

High Speed Shooting

Just as impressive as the Dual Capture capabilities is the speed at which the WB2000 can shoot video and stills. For starters, the WB2000, has a powerful burst mode capable of capturing up to 10 full-size, 10 megapixel stills. If you're looking to take even more continuous shots, you can use the convenient pre-capture feature when shooting. So even when you're shooting a fast-moving object, the WB2000 will capture details that your eye may have missed with this unique feature. Additionally, the WB2000 features a high speed video recording mode which can be used to reveal the smallest detail of a fast moving event in super-slow motion. Whether it is used to transform an everyday moment into something magical, or to analyse a golf swing, the WB2000's super-slow motion playback opportunities are endless.

Panorama and Panorama Action

Panorama and Panorama Action

Don't be limited to landscapes or group portraits when taking panoramic shots with a wide-angle lens. With the WB2000's Panoramic + Panoramic Action Feature, it's now even easier to create seamless wide-angle view, even when the subject of the shot is moving in almost any direction. The WB2000 can even help you detect if people or other objects are moving in the camera's field of view while you're taking the panoramic shot. Simply aim the camera with the shutter pressed fully down, and then follow through once you're ready to take the shot. Once the shots have been taken, Samsung's proprietary panoramic technology automatically searches for motion borders of the two images and these are stitched together as seamlessly as possible. The Panoramic + Panoramic Action mode also includes additional features such as 15fps processing speed, an image creation speed of 4.5 seconds.

Panorama: Capture panoramic images by moving your camera up and down or right and left while pressing the shutter fully down. The scanning is completed by taking your finger off the shutter. A maximum of 270 degrees of scanning is possible.

Panorama Action: Position the object at the centre of the screen and select it with the camera by pressing the shutter halfway down. Then follow the object with your camera with the shutter pressed completely down. You can stop shooting by lifting your finger off the shutter.

High Speed CMOS Sensor

Powered by a high-speed CMOS sensor, the WB2000 comes fully equipped with Back Side Illuminated (BSI) CMOS technology. This technology, which can typically be found in digital camcorders, allows for you to capture higher quality images during low-light conditions as compared to other similar cameras. The CMOS sensor also allows you to capture Full HD 1080p videos, as well as 10 megapixel photos, simultaneously. It even enables you to continuously shoot up to 10 full size stills or record high speed videos.

Pre-capturing

While the WB2000 comes fully equipped with a high-speed shooting feature tat allows you to take up to 10 full-size images, sometimes there are situations where you need to shoot more. The innovative Pre-capture feature gives you the flexibility to continuously prerecord high-speed images over a longer period of time, which is determined by your internal memory size. To use the Pre-capture feature, simply aim the WB2000 and press the shutter halfway down to start pre-recording. Once you press the shutter all the way down, it displays thumbnails of the last nine images you captured. Then you can select which ones you want to keep or delete - virtually guaranteeing that you'll get the shot even if the user's reaction time is slower than the action. Perfect for situations where timing is essential, such as photographing a tennis player's serve, children playing, or blowing out birthday candles.

AMOLED Display

The WB2000's 3.0" AMOLED display is the perfect complement to its high resolution images. Compared to standard TFT-LCD displays, the AMOLED is thinner, brighter, faster in response time and is excellent in colour reproduction. The AMOLED display is also more energy efficient so you won't waste battery life while viewing your photos. Plus, the colourful user interface on the display is extra sharp and easy on the eyes.

Taking photos has never been easier

Shoot stills like a pro with the built-in Smart Auto feature from Samsung. Smart Auto automatically analyzes the composition and then selects the scene - Portrait, Landscape, Spotlight, Low Light, and more - whichever is the most suitable for the situation. It then combines that with the appropriate picture mode, which includes Portrait, Landscape, Night and Macro. With the WB2000, some options of the Smart Auto feature can even be used when recording movies, so now you can create your own movie magic with a simple push of a button.

Never lose sight of your subject

Keeping a tight focus on a subject is never an easy task. The Intelligent Object Tracking feature on the WB2000 allows you to easily follow an object when it is in motion, and automatically focuses on it. Even if the subject of the shot is constantly moving or not even in the centre of the composition, Object Tracking will make sure the subject is in complete focus the entire time.

A smarter photo album

The WB2000's Smart Album feature allows for intuitive sorting and organizing of your photos and even videos. It can automatically organize your photos and videos based on when they were taken. Smart Album even allows you to browse through your photos by month or a timeline, providing you with intuitive ways to search. What's more, Smart Album can automatically sort your files based on type (photo or video), making browsing even easier. In addition, the intuitive five-direction key and the smart wheel provide greater control and a more efficient way of searching through your album.

The camera arrived in a compact box containing the camera, the battery, a wall charger with USB cable, a CD-Rom, Quick Start Manual, warranty, and wrist strap. Apparently to save cost, the 131 page user's manual is located on the disk rather than provided in hard copy format.

It took 2 hours and 20 minutes to fully charge the battery before the camera could be used. The charging cable is quite short about 20", so an extension cord will probably be needed to reach from the power outlet to the camera. The cable provides a relatively large red lighted arrow on the camera side when the camera is charging that turns green when the camera is fully charged. Although the cable has a standard USB profile at one end, the other end has a profile I hadn't seen before. The "mini dashboard", i.e, the two analog dials on top of the camera, one for battery charge and the other for memory usage, do not work in the charging mode. Thus, you can't see charge progress on the battery dial and need to rely on the charging light's 'not charged'/'fully charged' indicator.

Operation is not obvious. For example, a red circled button on the camera back can be pressed to begin and end a movie, This was done to allow the shutter button to be used for still photos while recording a movie. An outstanding feature, but this implementation is not intuitively apparent. Some options are unavailable in certain modes when other modes were previously selected, which options are available or unavailable in what mode is not immediately obvious. For example the 'Image Adjust' mode for changing contrast, sharpness, or saturation appears as unavailable if any 'Photo Style" or 'Smart Filter' choice was previously made.

I haven't had this camera long or had the time to really get to grips with all the features, but the one thing I've found strange is that I end up having to reset it from time to time because it gets stuck on a setting - e.g. the flash will be always off - and you can't fix it without resetting to factory defaults. Another glitch I had the other night where it wouldn't autofocus and so every photo I took came out blurred. In that instance I just had to turn it off and on again, but I wasted about 20 mins figuring that out.

Whilst on the negatives the slow speed of processing between shots can be a bit of a pain, if you know that you want to take a few shots in a row, then it is probably worth using a burst setting.

But when it works it seems to take some really nice shots, I was definitely more impressed with the noise levels and particularly the noise reduction blurring than I was with the last compact I bought (Fujifilm finepix f80exr which I found very dissappointing and actually sent back). Picture quality is by far my most important criteria when selecting any camera and this does deliver. I like the fact that it is only 10MPs as well as you actually get a more accurate representation per pixel than on 12 and 14 MPs that are squeezed into similar sized sensors.

The AMOLED screen on the back is great as well - very high res for a compact and vibrant colours - it really shows off your pics on the go
