Presenting a user interface with twice the advantages. The Hybrid Touch User Interface offers two options: use the 5-way button to quickly move the cursor up, down, left and right to intuitively navigate the menu and make selections on the 3.0"; (75mm) hVGA screen. Alternately, when you want to enter text — such as an email address, for when you're sharing photos —simply input the characters on the touch screen, much like you would on a smartphone. Navigating controls and sharing images couldn't be easier.

Go far and wide for the perfect shots

24mm, 18x zoom
24mm, 18x zoom
24mm, 18x zoom

The whole wide world is yours to capture. Use the 24mm wide-angle lens to capture a quaint row of Tudor houses or a gushing, mile-wide waterfall — it can handle any sweeping panoramas, even those wider than can been seen with the unaided eye. There's also an 18x Optical Zoom that lets you quickly take stunning close-ups from far away, so you can get sharply rendered images of moving glockenspiel figurines atop a clock tower or of the colorful details of exotic birds in the wildlife park.

Capture brilliance in low-light settings

14M BSI CMOS sensor & Low Light Shot

A sunset beach party, a dimly-lit dance club — great photo opportunities don't always have the best lighting. Capture properly exposed images in low-light situations with the 14-megapixel BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor, which needs less light than conventional sensors. And use Low Light Shot to automatically select the best setting and merge three continuous shots into one, clear photo.

Shoot like a pro
Shoot like a pro

Stylish and Classic Design

The easiest way to shoot like a pro

Smart Mode

Stop being jealous of the pros with their big cameras, and start taking great shots. A quick tap of Smart Mode and you're set with various special modes. Capture perfect trails of light at night on a busy intersection full of red taillights or instantly capture a high-speed scene with Sports Capture. Let Rich Tone create extraordinarily surrealistic photos with colors that pop and express your artistic side. Just choose the one you want and shoot perfection.

Instantly rewind to the picture perfect moment

Best Face

Missed it With the Best Face feature that won't happen again. Use it to travel back in time after you've taken a picture to replace faces with the perfect moment. Use it to open eyes, replace a smile, or find that perfect expression. With the combination lightning fast burst shots and facial recognition, you can simply tap a face that's looking the other way, and tap again to replace it with expressions taken moments before the actual shot. It really is magic.

Full HD Recording

Capture 1920x1080 Full HD video with life-like color and extraordinarily sharp details. Shoot longer too — the camera's H.264 format allows longer recording than a camera with MJPEG video does. When you're done, you can watch your brilliant HD footage large as life on your HDTV.

Full Manual Mode(A/S/M)

Full Manual (A/S/M) allows you full creative control. Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority settings let you experiment with shutter speeds and depth of field — for example, when you're shooting fast-moving images in low light. With Samsung cameras, you can capture exactly the photos you want.

Motion Photo

Motion Photo freezes the action around a moving subject to create a fun scene. Capture a friend dancing — then make everyone around him still as a statue. Simply shoot the footage, and then rub the area on the display where you want keep the movement. The photo around it will freeze—it's that easy.

Bought the camera for a number of reasons (in order of importance)

i) Ability to charge from USB without having to pop out the battery every time it goes flat. Essential when travelling. Most digital cameras require you to have an AC charger with you - this makes sense for a professional camera, but NOT for a pocket digi camera which i take travelling with me.
ii) Good quality high def pictures & videos
iii) Ability to zoom while taking videos
iv) Good close up shots (both video & still)
v) Pocket sized. I like to have a camera with me at all times ready to use
vi) Good zoom with a decent lens
vii) Good standby battery life (many cameras eat their battery in weeks of standby without any use - how stupid is that?)
viii) Ease of use. Got to be simple to use. I wanted a camera that simply works without having to press lots of buttons.

This camera has fulfilled all my expectations. I'm so very happy with it.
Brilliant hi def videos, fantastic zoom, brilliant stills, easy to use, good battery life, charges via USB.

I've never owned a Samsung camera before, and it has surpassed all my expectations. If you're looking for an easy to use camera that takes excellent pictures and videos then this is the camera for you.

I'm sure professional photographers will find flaws in this camera, but then I'm not a professional photographer!..... Just looking for something that I can carry around with me all the time that is ready to take a snap within seconds of getting it out. Something reliable, quick & easy to operate.

Bought because need a good pocket camera in January . Have been putting it through its paces with excellent results. Have pictures taken at a mile distance and then later zoomed in to see things that the naked eye can't see. Also done the same with a bee on a flower and can see grains of pollen on individual hairs. Well worth the money . All this can be achieved on one small camera.

After a bad experience with a firmware update to my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, it pains me to write something nice about SAMSUNG in relation to this camera. I was not going to buy it on principle but hey... more fool me if I didn't. (I swallowed my weak minded pride)

I read review after review and as an experienced photographer, I knew which reviews were too expectant of exactly what they thought they were going to get for the VERY cheap price of this camera. After all, instead of taking my NIKON DSLR (and all its related equipment) on holiday with me I wanted something of quality and a little more transportable!

My initial needs were these:

* Good image quality (both photo and video)
* Good low light performance
* Wireless access to social media and local connection to phone
* Support for hight capacity memory cards (64GB SDXC Cards)
* Good battery life
* (It had to look pretty cool too for the wife!)
* Budget of between £100 and £150
* Good Warranty

On arrival of the camera (which I bought from an Amazon seller called Inception), I was aware that one or two reviewers were commenting on receiving GREY IMPORTS (from outside the UK) which did not have original chargers etc. I was very happy to see that this was not the case from this seller from Amazon. The seal on the box was intact and all UK adapters were present. It was clearly a UK model.

Opening the box I couldn't help but smile. It certainly looks very nice, it is easy (and light) to hold and it is VERY well finished which kept the only requirement of my wife on track. I only paid £96 for this item but despite that, I immediately wanted to examine the qualities above that I was looking for.

For a point and shoot camera, this is the best I've come across. The picture quality is amazingly good and it is able to pick out really fine detail. The zoom is excellent for a camera of this size. The photos taken on this have come out crisp and clear. The camera is a great size for being easily carried around.

Would recommend.

Colour: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
By coincidence within the last month I bought the Samsung WB150f and reviewed it relatively favourably but not 100% happy (you can read it here Samsung WB150 Compact Digital Camera - White (14.1MP, 18x Optical Zoom) 3.0 inch LCD
The main problems I had with the older model were low light issues when using it indoors but not particularly dark, and the terrible way you had to input email addresses and passwords by using a 5 point cursor control!
Well the first thing you wil notice about this is it is now touchscreen - this is an incredible improvement, not just for being able to change the focus points but also for the wifi and sharing capabilities. Yes I know this isn't what a camera is all about, but to me it was a main feature of buying the original model. I want to be able to upload directly to Facebook and email to family and with the touchscreen it is much better and easier to do.
Speaking of wifi etc, it still remembers your last log in for home networks and things which is useful and also it can keep you signed in to Facebook and sky drive cloud services for backing up

Low light conditions have been improved as well. There is a low light setting in the Smart function which takes 4 shots and processes them into one shot.
