Summary: The Samsung WB2000 may resemble just another point-and-shoot compact camera at first glance, but its AMOLED screen, fast writing speeds, intuitive operation, raw-file support and rugged build quality mark it out as slightly more than run of the mill.
Pros: Stunningly sharp AMOLED screen; quiet zoom operation; fast focus and response times; captures both raw and JPEG files.
Cons: Unremarkable battery life; noisy images at highest ISO settings; pricier than your average snapshot model.
Conclusion: Samsung has definitely tried to push the design and technical boundaries with their dual-screen compacts, and the market inventing NX10, but have shown with their most recently releases that they seem to be after a good balance of revolution and tradition.
Summary: While this was an early pre-production model that I couldn’t shoot with, it made a great first impression on me. The AMOLED screen really sets this camera apart. Combined with the dual scroll wheels and great feel, the TL350 has a solid head of steam leading up toward it’s launch later this Spring.

Summary: The Samsung WB2000 has some unique features that make it stand out in a crowded compact camera market, but it's by no means a perfect camera. Its colours could stand to be more vibrant and natural and its overall image clarity could be better, and some of its controls could also be better.
Pros: Manual and semi-automatic modes, high-speed video mode, f/2.4 lens, smart filters
Cons: Controls could be better, colours look too harsh, noticeable softness at the edges of photos
Conclusion: For the privilege of owning a WB2000 Samsung was asking a high sounding £330 at the time of writing. That said a brief search online and we were able to discover the camera for a more realistic and enticing £260.
Pros: RAW and JPEG capture, superb AMOLED rear screen provides life-like images, quiet zoom operation plus zoom accessible in movie mode, fast to focus and respond generally
Cons: Expensive if going by manufacturer’s asking price, poor battery life, noticeably noisy images at highest ISO settings and when shooting in lower light
Summary: The Samsung WB2000 / TL350 is a very well-specified and importantly a very well-realised compact camera that should appeal to still photographers and videographers alike. The ability to take 10 RAW photos in a second and capture full HD video footage using the same pocket-sized camera means that the...
