Conclusion: Overall, the WB150F is a surprisingly great option. When a camera has this many flashy features up front – Wi-Fi, editing, filters, manual settings – and doesn’t come with the most dependable name in point-and-shoots attached, it’s good to be a bit cautious. Even though the image quality is not the best we’ve seen for this price, the convenience factor, good looks and stable body do an admirable job making up for this caveat.
Pros: Nice looking, sturdy body, Wi-Fi is easy to set up, effective, Nice, intuitive UI and settings navigation, Tons of features
Cons: Can’t push ISO high, Doesn’t perform great in low light without flash, Video is adequate at best
Excerpt: The Samsung WB150F has two primary attractions on a very lengthy list of advanced features. It carries an 18x Schneider-Kreuznach optical zoom lens, covering a range equivalent to 24-432mm in 35mm terms. It also offers wireless photo uploading. This it offers in spades - not only is it capable of connecting to Wi-Fi networks, its able to make a direct connection with a compatible tablet or smartphone for file transfer without the need for any wireless network.
Excerpt: Samsung’s recent slew of compact cameras have stood out from the pack if not by design then by the icon-led layout of their menus and effects filters. These have increasingly been presented in the style of smartphone apps. Touch screens and elongated bodies on some models have further accentuated the link between phone and camera. So why buy a camera at all?

Cons: Video not Full HD, Sound only mono, No integral GPS
