An inexpensive high zoom camera, but didn't do as good as I hoped.

Steven Hurd, Amazon

  • Summary: I really wanted to love this camera. Samsung is one of my favorite electronics manufacturers, and it was at a great price point considering all the features. But I have to say, I am a bit underwhelmed. Based strictly on the number of megapixels and power of optical zoom, this should be a great camera, but it consistently underperformed a beat up old high zoom Panasonic that I have had for years, that was roughly half the megapixels and half the zoom.

Maybe I just got a bad one...

B. Jones, Amazon

  • Summary: I was very excited about this purchase after the price dropped so much and very disappointed when I received it and ended up returning this camera. I only had it for about a week and used it to take photos at a Beyonce concert. The optical zoom is amazing, I was able to get great shoots and you could not tell that I was far away from the stage. My problem with this camera is that it seemed cheaply made and the flash did not work properly.

99% of pictures are blurry

  • Summary: this is my first "advanced" digital camera, as i'm used to the $70 point and shoot canons. i'm still trying to get used to it, and it has many fun settings. however, i got it to take mostly inside pictures of my daughter playing. the action shot setting in inside lighting doesn't allow me to use the flash and is extremely dark photo. i had a professional photographer friend help me out with it, and she didn't understand why it won't allow a flash on most settings.

Battery Drains Too Quickly...Flash Seems Like It's Just Waiting To Break Off...

RyanArch, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: I'm giving this camera a 2-star rating for several reasons. The first being a crazy fast battery drain while shooting video...I shot 20 minutes of 1080p video and took maybe 25 flash photos and the battery was in the red...and since there is no stand alone wall charger for the removable battery you're stuck carrying the charging cord and wall wart everywhere you go. I needed this camera to last through a full day if possible..

Samsung WB250F Camera

Gillian Eastwood, Amazon
7 October 2013
  • Summary: I've had numerous problems with this camera. It can take some nice photos however overall it seems shoddily put together and the housing is weak, sometimes to point that the flash is obstructed and doesn't always pop up when needed. Slow to view photos. The lever holding the battery in place broke within the first 2 months.

Camera has glitches

MICHELLE D., Amazon

  • Summary: The first WB250F I ordered started off working fine. I took it on a weekend vacation to test its functionality ahead of a big trip to Hawaii. I'm glad I did because after a day I had problems with the camera. It froze up when trying to switch between modes and if I turned it off then back on, it would automatically take a picture. I returned it without hassle and ordered a second version.

Not impressed

  • Summary: So overall camera phones still take better pictures than this camera. I got it primarily for the zoom (sports pics) which it does - but the quality...
  • Pros: Can post pics direct to Facebook (but only one at a time)
  • Cons: Picture quality

  • Summary: I bought this camera for it's features which I was pleased however, I had trouble turning the camera on. About 3 out of 4 attempts it would open and then turn off. It kept telling me to take the battery out to re-install it and if it continued return it. I gave it about two weeks but was tired of missing shots. Purchased a more known named product in the camera world.
  • Cons: Poor quality
