There's also an 10x 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 colourful details of exotic birds in the wildlife park.

With Motion Photo, you can freeze time around a moving subject to create enchanting images. Capture a friend dancing while everyone else around him is still as a statue—just like in a Hollywood blockbuster. Simply shoot the footage, and then rub the area on the display where you want action. The photo around it will freeze—it's that easy.
Frame your pictures in fun
Make a portrait look like an antique, or put your face on the moon — Magic Frame's 12 background templates offer lots of picture-taking enjoyment. You can also put images on a 1950's TV set or a movie. There are so many possibilities for fun — especially when you share the poster-quality results!
More fun, more creative
Boost creative fun with Samsung's Smart Filter lens and colour effects — right on the display! Cartoon Filter makes any photo look like an animated film scene while Cross Filter makes light sources appear to have several points of light. There's also Zooming Shot, Ink Painting, Oil Painting, Half-tone Dot — and many more ways for you to express your creative side!
See what you are going to get
With Live Panorama, you can capture a seemingly endless procession of gondolas gliding past a magnificent Venetian palace with an astounding 180º panoramic image. And you can preview the image on the LCD before you even snap it. Just hold the shutter button, sweep across the scene and see what you're going to get before you get it.
Smart Auto (Still & Movie) instantly analyzes key elements of your composition then automatically adjusts to capture the perfect shot with multitude of different photo modes and movie modes.
With Split Shot, you can merge up to three different images to create an artistic statement - turn yourself into a centaur by combining a self-portrait with a picture of a horse. Let your imagination loose and enjoy fun.
Crystal-clear video deserves crystal-clear sound. HD Movie with Zoom Noise Reduction (ZNR) automatically adjusts and optimizes the sound when recording in HD, and even eliminates the whirring noise of the zoom function. Your ears will thank you.
The 3.0-inch LCD screen on the back of the Camera provides a perfect, glare-free way to review your photos. The wide and bright screen reproduces the images so they look as they truly appear—even in direct sunlight.

This does mean you couldn't charge a 2nd battery whilst using camera if you wanted to... minor point.
This camera is a good size but not smallest like the Canon Ixus range. I would still call this a leisure camera as it still fits in the pocket nicely. It has an excellent 8.5cm screen (visible)
One major problem with the design is that the flash is near your hand (i.e. the wrong side). For people with larger hands, this means that you'll forever be covering the flash. The higher models use a pop-up flash.
The camera has a number of shooting modes; Program, Auto, Portrait etc. These are accessed via an on screen menu not a mode selector switch on the camera body. This makes it fiddly but as most people will be using this on Auto, this shouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately there's no Manual mode.
The lens seems very good. Wide angle at 28mm and full zoom at 43mm; this is more than enough for most uses.
The resolution of 16mp is insanely high. In the war of pixel escalation, this surely is overkill.... unless you're going to blow-up your images to A0? As you're most likely be using this camera to take "selfies" with your mates whilst on holiday then this doesn't really matter.
The flash works well but metering seems too bright. Macro is exceptionally good at just 1" (had fun taking close-ups of insects) and image stabilisation works very well at full zoom. Low light compensation seems very good.
Shutter response is a little slow compared to my Canon Ixus and the zoom response is definitely annoying. Continuous drive is VERY slow (probably due to massive file sizes) to the extent that it's probably quicker just pushing the shutter release repeatedly.
The advertised WiFi app is awful. It just doesn't work. So don't think you'll be sharing any photos with your camera to send via 3G anytime soon! This removes MOST of the perceived benefits of this camera in an instant. If there's any update of this app I shall report accordingly.
Connection to my home WiFi was simple and the Email of photos works very well. Also you can save to Skydrive (no Google drive) or send straight to Facebook
For some reason you can't update the camera software over WiFi & have to rely on a USB connection to your PC.
The biggest problem with this camera is that for a little more money (around £20) you can get the model up (250F) which has the pop-up flash, touchscreen and external mode switch (but a slightly lower pixel count). Combined with non-working app and a few minor glitches, even though this is a great camera, I can't recommend it. Shame
##EDIT## 25th June
The Samsung Smart Camera App now works.
It combines a number of features; Remote viewfinder, Auto Backup & Mobile Link. The most useful of these allow captured photos to automatically be sent to your phone which can then be uploaded to, say, Facebook. The integration is very good which leads me to giving the item an additional star.
##EDIT## 31st July
I've just taken this camera on a 2 week holiday. Unfortunately, the weaknesses in its perfromance has become apparent. The delay between pressing the button , focusing and taking the shot is very poor. Sometimes the camera appears to "hang"... not focussing at all. On the odd occasion I had to press the button repeatedly to get it to do something thus missing a "Kodak moment". My old Ixus 95 is a MUCH better camera with regards to this issue; rapid focus & near instant shots. As the lens is quite wide I often needed to zoom-in slightly but the delay in the zoom is also poor.. again I'd often have to repeatedly use the switch to get it to do something. For these reasons I'm forced to deduct a couple of stars... 2 stars.. stick with Canon
All images in the video from 2.38 to 8.18 minutes were taken on the Samsung 16 mp camera.
It coped very well with the ice cold gale force wind conditions unlike my "Lenovo S8-50, 8 inch tablet" which crashed and screen froze at least 5 times and didn't save any of my video or still footage. Too cold for it!
The images in the video were taken on the auto setting and have just been cropped to 1920 - 1080p and were only sharpened a tiny bit. There has been no colour enhancements except on the cover image.
This Samsung WB30F creates 16 megapixel images at 72 dpi and a file size of around 5.5 megabytes that have good contrast and colour and are nice and bright.
These have been probably the easiest still images to process for a video on my channel to date. A great compact camera that is only around £80 give or take. Worth every penny.
It is better than my Pentax Optio 12 megapixel compact camera that I bought for £180 3 years ago and a lot more reliable than my confounded Lenovo S8 (8 Megapixel/1080p video) tablet that will now be restricted to indoor use!

REVIEW - SAMSUNG 16 MP WB30F DIGITAL CAMERA - VIKING BOAT LAUNCH - ArtAlienTV
Happily, I was proved wrong. The camera, when in smart mode, automatically choses the shooting mode (panorama, portrait, low light, etc). The results at 16mp are extremely sharp and will please most point and shoot photographers. But apart from its abilty to take a good photograph, the built in added extras that give the WB30F the edge over anything I've used before - and especially in it's price range. Have a read of the Samsung full description on this page to see the full list of features, but the most used by myself is the All Share facilty. Basically, everytime I take a picture it is automatically sent to my nearby Samsung Galaxy S4 (no wifi needed) and from there it can be posted to any website, emailed, or transmitted up to your cloud (via the 3G network) - so basically your photos are immediately backed up.
The panorama shooting mode is excellent, the remote viewfinder handy, letting you use your phone as the viewfinder and to take the photo. There are lots of other little surprising features, that whilst on their own are not really necessities for a camerea, but coupled with what this little item can actually do and how it performs all add upto a fantastic little package.
So, if you're looking for a do it all, point and shoot camera with a reasonable zoom then the Samsung WB30F won't disappoint, and at a price point of below 120UKP is fantastic value for money.
