Summary: In use, the WB650 impresses. The focusing system is generally fast and accurate, which will no doubt be important for a general travel camera. The start-up time is almost instant as well, though the camera does take a reasonable amount of time to power down.
Pros: A full specification, GPS on-board, excellent screen
Cons: Some performance issue, inconsistent exposures
Excerpt: The Samsung WB650 shares similarities in terms of its shape to other WB models that we've reviewed before, like the Samsung 10.2Mp WB500. This latest model in the WB compact range features a 12Mp, 1/2.33'' sized sensor, with a 15x optical zoom lens, offering an equivalent focal length of 24-360mm in...

Summary: The GPS-enabled Samsung HZ35W digital camera produces some of the sharpest, highest-quality stills we've seen this side of a DSLR, but its confusing menu system and poor video quality knock it down a peg.
Pros: Excellent image quality, In-camera GPS integration with Navteq map service, Very sharp 3-inch AMOLED screen, Dual digital/mechanical image stabilisation, Largest zoom range of any compact camera
Cons: Dual stabilisation only in dedicated mode, disappointing video and audio capture, a bit bulky and slippery, confusing menu structure
Summary: The Samsung WB650 adds two significant features to its little brother, the WB600, namely a much better AMOLED screen and genuinely useful geo-tagging features, without increasing the price by too much.
Excerpt: The WB650 demonstrates Samsung’s recent flair for packing its cameras with impressive features. The 15x zoom lens is the biggest ever to be fitted into a compact-sized camera. The 3in screen has a 910,000-dot resolution, which is as sharp as the eye can see and is a treat to use.
Excerpt: Samsung a su proposer des produits à la fiche technique assez étoffée, et le Samsung WB650 fait partie de ceux là. On peut considérer ce fleuron de la gamme compact Samsung comme le concurrent du TZ10 .
Pros: Puissance du zoom, Module GPS, Ecran AMOLED, Rapport qualité - prix
Cons: Qualité en haute sensibilité, Ouvertures glissantes un peu restreintes
Summary: Det er ikke ultrakompakt, og når man ser nærmere etter, oppdager man fort hvorfor. Det sitter et ganske stort kvalitetsobjektiv på kameraet, som går fra 24 til 360 mm. Du får både vidvinkel og en skikkelig stor zoom på kjøpet.
