Samsung WB500

  • Excerpt: We reviewed the really tiny ultra compact – Fujifilm A100 – last week; moving from that tiny critter to this week's bulky mammoth – the Samsung WB500 – was quite a size jump! The WB500 is 105 x 61 x 37 millimeters in size, which fits it into the compact (rather than ultra compact) camera segment. It weighs a whooping 249 grams, which is heavy. The reason behind this though is the camera's powerful zoom lens, but let's leave that discussion for a bit later.

  • Conclusion: Samsung WB500 digital camera The Samsung WB500 is the world's first mega zoom camera providing a 24mm wide angle zoom and a total range of 10x. This is quite an achievement when it comes to optics. Samsung has not been easy on itself. The specifications are appealing, although the camera's design is not particularly striking. And it are exactly the occasional striking features, such as the silver-colored buttons on the back, that turn out inconvenient in practice.

  • Excerpt: Constructed of robust plastic with chrome detailing and large-ish buttons, Samsung's WB500 was released just a couple of months before its WB550 / HZ15W successor. The two cameras are virtually identical to each other, with the WB500 offering a 10 megapixel sensor and 2.7 inch LCD screen, and the WB550 featuring a 12 megapixel sensor and 3 inch screen, plus adding a HDMI output and Smart Auto mode.

Samsung WB500 review

expertreviews.co.uk
14 August 2009
  • Excerpt: At 24-240mm, the WB500 has the most impressive lens on show in this Labs. Only the Nikon Coolpix S630 beats it at the telephoto end, and nothing matches its 24mm wide-angle. Image quality was reasonable. Lenses that go from ultra-wide to telephoto tend to have sharpness problems, but we were happy enough. Some of the lens' sharpness comes from the WB500's aggressive post-shot sharpening, though.
