Takes great pictures...not so sure about the touchscreen idea
4 December 2013
Summary: This is certainly a different experience to use than most cameras. A touch screen camera....seems like a cool idea.....but...The touch based menus take some getting used to. Trying to scroll can be a challenge, if not done just right. Takes some practice (And clean fingers). Screen will need to be kept clean or it will affect the touch sensitivity. I still find it easier, faster and more natural and safer to have physical buttons right at my thumb to use.
Summary: My first digital camera was a Nikon, and after using it for a while, and not liking it, I started having some ideas what features I would like to have in my next one. This Samsung is like I design it and it even surpass what I ever expected in a camera for myself. And $115 was the icing on the top of the cake!
Summary: Don't be put off by bad reviews. Any camera can be a lemon, but mine has worked perfectly and was well under half price, so lots of camera for cheap. The 21mm wide angle is really handy creatively, or just for cramming in lots of people or other subject matter, and the 12x zoom covers a lot of range. The touch screen is intuitive and amazingly sharp (1,152,000 dots, the highest resolution around, and it's 3.5" so it's huge!
Summary: I'm an amateur photographer that is continuously looking for a compact wide angle camera. The advertised ultra wide angle feature on the Samsung EX WB210 impressed me. (advertised focal length 21mm). Normal zoom lens range is advertised as 24mm - 288mm. Compared the picture quality and zoom / wide angle feature with my ultra compact Sony Cybershot WX-5. Picture quality on the Sony WX-5 was better and much less grainy.
Summary: I send my camera for repair 2 times because the pictures are very white; the quality of the pictures is unacceptable. The Samsung tech said Camera is in factory standard which means no problem found on the unit, this is a Lemon camera, don't buy it!! I'm thinking to return this camera if it's possible .
Summary: I bought and subsequently returned this Samsung WB210 camera. As an advanced photographer with 30 years shooting, I just wanted a camera somewhere between my Nikon D700 and my iPhone 4, that was small, provided good quality images, and was easy to carry. While the Samsung images were okay, the camera was difficult to focus and had no manual controls for aperture or shutter, except in some limited fashion.
