Samsung WB550 Review

What Digital Camera
18 May 2009
  • Summary: The Samsung WB550 has some excellent specs on offer. Its 24mm wide angle lens with extendable zoom to 240mm means shooting a wide range of subjects is ideal – beyond what most compacts will offer, not least at this affordable price point.
  • Pros: 24mm wide angle, well priced, manual mode (and manual macro focus)
  • Cons: flash poorly placed, oversaturated colours in low light, over sharpening

Samsung WB550 – Review – 31

  • Excerpt: Giving the brand new Samsung WB550 a run for its money in the backyard just didn’t feel right. Its ultra-wide 24mm lens is just begging for gorgeous scenery. So off to the beach we went. I wore my bathing suit and the Samsung wore a canvas case.
  • Pros: Feature packed, Ultra-wide-angle lens, Generous zoom
  • Cons: Lack of on-screen feedback

  • Conclusion: If highly saturated pictures are your want, then the WB550 delivers, whilst providing the creative scope of a broader than average focal range in a comparatively compact form factor for a reasonable price.

Samsung WB550 digital camera

  • Pros: Small if chunky form factor, broad zoom range gives rise to more creative framing and compositional options than usual, HD movies with stereo sound
  • Cons: Narrow and painful to use command lever at rear of camera, positioning of the built-in flash at front means that stray fingers can sometimes get in the way

  • Summary: Though it is beginner friendly, Samsung's WB550 fortunately doesn't look cheap and cheerful and neither should it for £299. While, OK, it may not be the most svelte compact around, compensation comes in the form of its broader-than-average focal range which provides competition for Panasonic's...

  • Conclusion: Samsung WB550 to aparat budzący zainteresowanie. 10-krotny zoom optyczny w tak niewielkim korpusie to kusząca propozycja dla osób lubiących fotograficzne zbliżenia. Niestety oprócz zbliżeń zainstalowana optyka oferuje również wady, które ciężko jest pominąć w ostatecznej ocenie sprzętu.
  • Cons: problemy z ostrością na brzegach kadru - szczególnie po prawej stronie,, wysoki poziom szumów już przy ISO 800,, przeszkadzająca aberracja chromatyczna i dość duże winietowanie na najdłuższych ogniskowych,, słaba lampa błyskowa.

Test: Samsung WB550 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
27 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Die Samsung WB550 ist eine günstige Kompaktkamera mit praktischem 24-Millimeter-Ultraweitwinkel. Die Bildqualität ist gut und überzeugt vor allem bei geringer ISO-Zahl. Negativ fallen die teils unverständliche Bedienung und die langsame Geschwindigkeit auf.
  • Pros: Sehr gutes Weitwinkel, Manuelle Kontrolle
  • Cons: Teils unbekannte Abkürzungen im Menü, Geschwindigkeit

  • Excerpt: I vår første trippeltest har vi tatt med kameraer som har vidvinkel tilsvarende 25mm eller mindre og 200mm eller mer som største tele. I tillegg må kameraene kunne filme med 720p HD-oppløsning og veie mindre enn 250 gram.
  • Pros: Skarp skjerm, god lysmåler, "manuell" eksponering
  • Cons: Svake detaljer fra ISO 400, autofokus sliter i mørket, noe lav batterilevetid, stort og klumpete
