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 16-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 four continuous shots into one, clear photo.
Instantly rewind to the picture perfect moment
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.
The easiest way to shoot like a pro
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.
Full HD Movie Recording
Shoot 1920x1080 Full HD videos with continuous AF while capturing lifelike color and extraordinarily sharp details. The H.264 format records longer videos than a camera with MPEG format. Hook up the camcorder to your HDTV and watch your brilliant HD footage in the comfort of your living room.
Full Manual Mode
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 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.

There are a number of key differences from this model, from my previous model, the WB850F. The most noticable of these is the addition of a touch screen. My first thoughts on this were that it was a bit of a gimmick, however I thought a bit more about it and realised that actually I use touch screens everyday (phones being the most common) and I would actually consider going back to a manual button phone. The screen is rather responsive with very little delay or incorrect key registrations. However, I would probably prefer it if they had integrated a larger screen and abandoned all the manual buttons i.e. made it a fully touch sensitive camera rather than a hybrid. I imagine however that it will be something that is very easy to get used to.
The second change I noticed was to do with the flash. The flash on this model seems to be hinged on a very thin bit of metal and doesn't feel the most robust. In fact, I would probably go as far as to say that it could be quite easily damaged or broken off altogether. Perhaps it is sturdier than it looks, however only time will tell.
I previously had very serious battery issues with Samsung cameras where the battery would go flat within a couple of days, even if it wasn't used at all. Thus, you weren't able to have a ready camera available for any eventuality. However, this is much improved with this model and so far, the battery has lasted 3 months on a single charge.
As with most cameras, there are a number of different shooting modes available and there are a wide range of settings which can be altered to produce the best pictures such as shutter speed, aperture etc. However, I've found that on most occasions, the automatic mode manages perfectly fine.
The first time I used it was early evening in a restaurant. Set to auto, the camera performed very well. As the light faded, I switched on the flash. It seemed a little odd that in auto mode, you still have to physically push a button to raise the flash, and the time taken for the flash to charge was a little disappointing but not too much of an issue. The power of the flash was sufficient for that type of setting, but not particularly impressive. What did surprise was when I forgot to activate the flash, the quality of the low light pictures was remarkably good with far less noise than I would have expected. The best face function also worked surprisingly well here.
The following sunny day I discovered the biggest issue with this camera. In bright light, you can see absolutely nothing on the screen. This makes it impossible to compose a picture and resulted in me having to resort to bizarre behaviour with hats and cupping my hands around the camera trying to shade it enough to see the screen. In the end I just aimed the camera in the general direction of what I wanted, and took loads of pictures in the hope that at least some would be framed and/or zoomed the way I wanted. The results however were surprisingly good. Images are crisp, white balance, and colour saturation spot on, and not too much evidence of aggressive in-camera processing. Image stabilization on this little camera is really impressive, and especially noticeable when videoing. Video quality was equally impressive, but at times colours were a little over saturated. Shooting video however did reveal my second biggest issue with the camera. When zooming in on something, the auto focus often struggles to keep up and occasionally spent a long time searching. This is not a big issue when taking stills (you can help it a long by using the touch to focus screen function), but when videoing this became a real issue. I like taking videos of landscapes, typically panning across the view before zooming in to look at some detail. Doing this resulted in up to 4 or 5 seconds of out of focus video which for me is useless.
I was a little disappointed to learn that the camera severely drops the resolution (from 16MP to 5MP!!!) when using the clever functions such as panoramas or HDR, but the images produced did not look anything like as bad as I would have expected for this reduction.
A very big and unexpected positive for me was the wifi functionality. I thought it would just be a bit of a limited gimmick, but found myself using it all the time. The camera very quickly connected to me tablet and phone, enabling me to back up pictures, as well as give them a close inspection while still on holiday, rather than waiting to get them home and onto the PC. Using my phone as a remote view finder means that for the first holiday ever, I have loads of pictures of me and my OH together. It was also very nice to send pictures to people back home directly from the camera (at least it made my mum happy).
Battery life was surprisingly good and despite taking nearly 1000 photos + video, I only had to charge the battery 3 times in 3 weeks. Start up time from pushing the power button was very quick, and I never missed a picture waiting for it. The touch screen proved accurate and very responsive, and made navigation through the menus very simple. The zoom capability is fantastic and made sure that I did not miss my big DSLR zoom lens.
I was a little concerned that the complex metal shutters of the lens cover looked a little delicate and could be damaged in my pocket, so I bought a small case for the camera, which instantly made it too big to go in a pocket which was a bit annoying.
So now finally home, I have uploaded all the pictures to the PC, and have started working on them in Photoshop. Generally, I am very impressed with them and need to do little in terms of adjustments to exposure, white balance saturation or sharpening, though it is a shame that there is no ability to shoot in RAW.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase and I feel confident to recommend this camera to others - just be prepared for the invisible screen in bright sun and the slow auto focus.
