Summary: ....the manual and the website. The camera certainly lives up to expectations, the AMOLED screen, which was the selling point to me, has impressed so far, the picture quality is absolutely fine for what I want. It was a toss up between this and a TZ10 (I'm familiar with the TZ range - my other half has an earlier model) and I'm happy that I made the right choice.
Summary: This is my 3rd digital camera and it is the best so far, I have read reviews on most of the cameras of this type and spec. the camera works well and the qualty of the picture is as good as I will need ( I have set at 5M )the only down side is the Samsung web site for setting up the maps so they work.
It was recommended to me, now I recommend it to you.

Excerpt: I never thought I would find myself writing a camera review but I am about to do just that, this review will probably have the guide that recommended the camera to me cringing but here go`s. The camera in question is the Samsung WB650, it was recommended to me by Dooyoo`s photography expert and guide Colin (known to us as the bigc1690).
Pros: Good looking, full of great features, well made, easy to use, the list goes on and on .
Summary: the wb650 produces excellent quality shots even from max zoom BUT a whole afternoon of accessing various samsung sites has finally given me the page from which you can (in theory) download the maps. However when I select the appropriate zip file it says "access denied". Samsung WB650 Digital Camera - Black (12MP, 15x Optical Zoom) 3.0 inch AMOLED ScreenTo reach that point again requires reentering all the personal and product information AGAIN !!
Excerpt: I have been away from Dooyoo and Ciao for a few weeks now and hopefully you have missed my camera reviews and are now eagerly awaiting this (but probably not). I am sure by now many, most or all of the members of Dooyoo and Ciao are aware of the fact that I am a professional photographer and that I also regularly test cameras for my local camera club and then give seminars on their usefulness or lack of it as the case sometimes is but for those that do not know it didn't...
Summary: Just received this camera and wanted to share my first impressions. First thing that struck me was absence of a separate battery charger (you have to charge the battery in camera with included cable and usb plug). Have had to order a external battery charger. Also lacking is any software disc, just a cd with the manual (does have acrobat reader...). There is software (Intelli-Studio) but it's installed from the camera.
Summary: E' poco funzionale se volete scattare in manuale perchè il menù per impostare tempi e diaframma è un po' lento. Ad ogni modo ha diversi programmi automatici che funzionano molto bene, segnalo in particolare quello "controluce", che si è rivelato molto utile... La visualizzazione sul display delle foto scattate non sempre rende a pieno la qualità effettiva e la definizione dell'immagine. Nel complesso è una buona macchina.
Summary: benutze die Samsung WB650 nun schon seit über 1 Jahr unter verschiedenen Bedingungen und wollte doch mal meine Erfahrung mitteilen. Ausschlaggebend für den Kauf DIESER Kamera war u. a. das GPS-Tagging. Bei GPS-Benutzung muss man allerdings viel Zeit vor der Aufnahme einplanen, denn auch unter günstigen Verhältnissen braucht das GPS-Signal sehr lange (manchmal 5 min. und länger), bis es sich einschaltet. Dann funktioniert das Tagging aber einwandfrei und genau.
Langsame Kamera mit vielfältigen Einstellungsmöglichkeiten

Summary: Die Samsung WB650 ist ein nettes Spielzeug. Auf dem hochauflösenden Display sehen die Bildergebnisse super aus, auf dem PC-Monitor betrachtet, enttäuschen sie aber meist. 12 Megapixel bei dieser Kamera bewirken vor allem eines: Es werden riesige Dateien ( 6 MB) auf die Speicherkarte geschrieben, und die Speicherkarte wird schnell voll. Dem Auflösungsvermögen des Sensors dieser Kamera würden 3 Megapixel oder 1,5 MP viel eher entsprechen.
Summary: Die WB 650 ist die ideale Urlaubs - Kamera, einfach zu bedienen und mach für eine kompakte Kamera super Bilder. GPS ist auch eine schönes Zubehör jedoch geht das auf die Akkuleistung. Ich würde sie wider kaufen.
