Samsung WB800F Review

Digital Camera Review
2 August 2013
  • Excerpt: One of the most interesting recent developments in the ongoing digital imaging revolution is the introduction of the travel zoom point and shoot digital camera. Travel zooms look and handle like compact P&S cameras, but they feature extra long zoom lenses (typically 10x to 25x) and manual exposure options not included on the flood of auto exposure only compact cameras now inundating the marketplace.
  • Pros: Fast maximum aperture, neutral colors, integral handgrip, excellent image quality
  • Cons: LCD is prone to glare, no RAW mode

Samsung WB800F

30 July 2013
  • Excerpt: The Samsung WB800F measures a pocket-sized 110.6 x 65 x 21.5mm and weighs a solid feeling but manageable 218g without battery and card. It features something approaching a proper handgrip with a subtly textured surface to one side of its faceplate - a feature usually jettisoned in favour of cameras that pander more to sleek styling. This thereby suggests that sharp shots towards the telephoto end of its zoom just might be that much more achievable.

Samsung WB800F pictures and hands-on

Pocket Lint
11 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Samsung's going in hard when it comes to camera connectivity, with all its new compacts coming loaded with Wi-Fi, including the WB800F model. The WB800F is fairly large in the hand because of the considerable 21x optical zoom lens. We're not talking superzoom kind of bulk, but as the lens offers a 23-484mm equivalent zoom it's definitely got some size to it and protrudes right out when at its maximum zoom.

Das versöhnt allerdings nur bedingt in Anbetracht der bescheidenen Bildqualität inklusive hoher Weichzeichnung und störender Abbildungsfehler.
  • Pros: Brennweite, WLAN, Touchscreen
  • Cons: Detailverlust, Auflösung, Farbsäume im Tele
