Summary: Hi All, Been reading ALOT of reviews and feedback about the camera. On the whole this camera really is brill. I can understand some of the poor feedback about the GPS and pic quality, but just like the Fuji F70exr I owned once you get under the surface and go to a couple of the online forums you find out how to get the most out of the camera. As for Samsungs online instructions for the setting up the GPS....one word "atrocious". I had to look online for help.

Summary: I was bought this item from Amazon as a birthday present. My previous camera only had 5 optical zoom so was looking to upgrade. Just been on a cruise holiday with it and it has performed well and the GPS tagging is amazing. I travelled around the Western Med and it was interesting to know the camera once it found the satellites knew exactly where the picture was being taken even up Mount Etna which I visited.
It was recommended to me, now I recommend it to you.

Excerpt: "...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). I had read his review on it and then messaged him to ask if this would be better than the camera my wife had been thinking about buying and in his opinion this was the one to go for and I have to say both my wife and I are delighted with it. The first thing I noted about this camera was that it was a very ...
Pros: Good looking, full of great features, well made, easy to use, the list goes on and on .
Summary: I just had to have a long zoom pocket cam for when ny DSLR isn't practical and narrowed the choice down to the Panasonic TZ10 and Samsung WB650 as all the competition had either lens issues, lousy colours or poor LCDs. The much better Auto WB of the Samsung, AMOLED screen and no battery chip won the day overall so I bought the WB650 and have been playing with it for a week now. It's solid, no paint has worn off yet, and the lens is fantastic.
Summary: Samsung seem to be on a mission to make its customers more tech savvy, particularity with their GPS equipped products. This was the case with my Samsung Smartphone and so it is with the WB650. On first switching-on the GPS a message is displayed indicating that no map data had been found and inviting the user to the Samsung website to download it.
Looking for a compact, fully featured camera with big zoom, latest facial recognition tech and manual control?

Summary: Bought to replace a Sony DSC-T9 that is reaching the end of its life. Was looking for something compact, but with more features than the Sony. Zoom being a big one, and a bit of manual control being another. Very happy so far. Not had any problems with GPS signal, picks it up in a minute or so (Central London) which is about the same as my Tom Tom on a cold start. Screen is amazing, photos are great, zoom is great.
Summary: I have had this little gem for about a month now and have been blown away by it's quality. The styling is very understated but the build quality, size and weight is just perfect for my large man hands. The amoled screen is crystal clear and a vast improvement over the old lcd screen of my previous camera.
Excerpt: "...you all today is the Samsung WB650, another fantastic offering from Samsung who until recently were better known for mobile phones and televisions but are now getting bigger by the day in the world of photography. The Samsung WB650 is a very stylish, highly functional, 12 megapixel compact camera that I have to admit really surprised me when I put it through its paces, I have been surprisingly impressed with some Samsungs in the past but none ...
Summary: I used to own a Panasonic Lumix LX1. It was a great camera and quite portable but not quite small enough for a shirt pocket. So I sold it and bought Casio Exilim EX-Z77. It didn't have quite the zoom of the LX1 but image quality was acceptable and it fitted beautifully into any pocket you care to think of. But it wasn't really up to the job I wanted it for. Then I bought a Nikon D60 DSLR.
Summary: Ich habe die Digitalkamera Samsung WB 650 seit 2010 im ständigen, geschäftlichen Einsatz. Vor zwei Jahren hatte sie beim Ausschalten plötzlich das Objektiv nicht mehr geschlossen. Das Gerät wurde aber anstandslos im Rahmen der Garantie repariert und funktioniert seitdem einwandfrei.
