Good versatile camera with a nice zoom lenses, well worth it at eBay prices
1 August 2011
Summary: This is a pretty nice camera for the size and price. The 10X zoom give you quite a bit of versatility. The wide side lets you cover a lot of area while when zoomed in you can get pretty up close and personal. I was personally hoping for the zoom to get up closer to things, but it starts out pretty wide. This isn't a SLR or anything, but for a small point and shoot it's not bad at all. The HD Video was a must for me. Overall I'm pretty happy with it.
Summary: The only thing I didn't like was the lack of the fun effects that were on my S1050. I love the Samsung products and the only reason that I bought a new camera was when my S1050 started over-heating and I couldn't get it fixed.
Summary: This camera is wonderful for the person looking for a compact yet good quality camera. I purchased it for my 17 year old daughter. She uses it to take pictures for her school projects as well as recreation activities. She has taken hundreds of pictures and almost every time gets good results.
Summary: This camera is superb. Great price, size it has everything. Results are spectacular. I am glad I purchased it. I need a point and shoot with great results and I found the camera I needed. It's compact and easily fits anywhere plus give s professional results. Great for pic and video making as well.
Summary: as usual with most cameras it doesn't like night-shooting. i take this with me whenever i go out. it's easy to transfer images to the computer and/or charge it from the computer. i have dropped, and bashed it against things by accident and it is no worse for wear. very happy with it!
Excerpt: "I first came across the Samsung WB500 digital camera while browsing the shelves in Tesco for a new Satnav, I had saved for a new Satnav for a few months and strangely enough I came away that day with a camera instead of a Satnav…. That’s exactly how weird I can be! The camera was priced at £229 at the time roughly two years ago – It’s very much cheaper now at around £99, I couldn’t resist picking it from the shelf due to its looks, the big lens did ...
Pros: Lovely to hold, takes fantastic pictures and it's very reliable !
