11 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Looks like Samsung came up with a pretty solid competitor to Canon’s SX200 and Panasonic’s ZS3/TZ7. The HZ10W AKA WB500 has a relatively modest 10 megapixels of resolution (in the insane megapixel race nowadays), a 10X optical zoom lens and a 2.7 inch screen.
  • Pros: Good image quality in well-lit conditions, surprisingly little lens distortion for 24 mm lens, 10X lens with optical image stabilization; starts at ultra-wide 24 mm, Dedicated command lever for adjusting exposure directly, Manual exposure mode with manual focus, white balance and bracketing, 720p...
  • Cons: Over-processing (especially noise reduction) and color fringing (chromatic aberration), No aperture or shutter priority modes, Below average low-light focusing; misleading ‘focus lock’ confirmations, Poor flash placement: easily blocked by fingers, Lens is on the slow side at telephoto; less zoom...

27 April 2009
  • Conclusion: If you’re after a super slim, lightweight compact that looks better than it performs, the WB500 is not for you. If, on the other hand, you can handle a little extra build in exchange for some great image quality and an impressive list of intuitive technologies, this unit from Samsung is highly...

Samsung WB500 - szybki test

fotopolis.pl
17 August 2009
  • Summary: Jak wspominałem wcześniej Samsung stara się wejść dynamiczniej na rynek aparatów kompaktowych. Model WB500 jest jednym z aparatów, który ma budować pozycję południowokoreańskiego koncernu. Gdyby pojawił się dwa lata temu osiągnąby wyższą ocenę. Jednak obecnie dostaje solidne 3.
  • Pros: + pomiar światła, + nagrywanie filmów w jakości HD 720p, + zakres ogniskowej z szerokim kątem 24 mm, + automatyczny pomiar balansu bieli, + staranne wykonanie i atrakcyjny design, + menu funkcyjne Fn, + 2,7-calowy wyświetlacz LCD
  • Cons: - winietowanie na najdłuższych i najkrótszych ogniskowych, - reprodukcja szczegółów, - reprodukcja czerwieni, - brak trybu manualnego z prawdziwego zdarzenia, - wysoki poziom szumu na wyższych czułościach
