Summary: Samsung has included an impressive set of features with one of its newest , the WB850F. The 21X zoom lens in a model that measures just under 1.4 inches in thickness is difficult for any other camera maker to match.
Summary: The Samsung WB850F is a compact, high-level not only allows you to take photos and video of good quality but also has some additional features, such as built-in GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity, which put on a step slightly higher than to other similar models.
Pros: 3-inch AMOLED display, Full HD video at 30 fps; Price; manual mode, 21x optical zoom, wide-angle lens 23 mm Schneider-KREUZNACH, WiFi and GPS, DUAL IS (Optical Image Stabilization Digital Image Stabilization) , 16.2 MP CMOS sensor with BSI; PIP function for photos and movies; Function GPS Live L...
Cons: Lack micro HDMI port; Lack RAW format, autofocus does not always responsive.
Conclusion: Samsung packs a lot (and we mean a lot ) into what is essentially an average point-and-shoot camera: Its specs are fine, and image quality is good, but not outstanding. But as we noted with the WB150F, Samsung’s forwarding-looking features and UI seal the deal, not image quality.
Pros: Easy to use Wi-Fi function, Feature-packed and versatile, Great interface, Fast functioning and processing
Cons: GPS is easy to use, but battery draining, Average image quality, Can’t push ISO without noise
Summary: If you want an all-round traveller's camera, you need a long zoom, decent resolution and built-in GPS. The Samsung WB850F has them all, and the addition of Wi-Fi helps it stand out from the crowd, while justifying the slightly high price.
Pros: Long zoom; Punchy colours; Plenty of detail; Integrated GPS; Built-in Wi-Fi.
Pros: 21x optical zoom lens is a powerful option in a thin camera, Overall image quality is good and focus is pretty sharp, Display screen is very bright and sharp, Lens fully retracts inside the camera, protecting the glass, High-speed burst modes work well, Pop-up flash unit provides good low-light r...
Cons: Battery life is below average, Must charge battery inside the camera; no separate battery charger included, Camera's performance is a bit sluggish at times, Zoom lens moves slowly through its range, especially after shooting a photo, Pop-up flash unit isn't automatic, Some aspects of the WB850F m...
Summary: The WB850F arrives with a ‘Smart’ moniker and more features than you can shake a stick at. Unfortunately several usability issues hamper the shooting experience but overall its pros outweigh its cons.
Conclusion: I found a lot to like in the Samsung WB850F, including an ample zoom range, well-implemented controls, innovative Wi-Fi capabilities, and good image quality. The camera’s GPS features are very good, too, though having to load them onto the camera yourself is a bit of a hassle.
Pros: 21X optical zoom lens (23mm to 483mm); manual controls and creative filters; Wi-Fi sharing features and in-camera; GPS/mapping; good image quality at wide-angle to midzoom
Cons: Battery is charged inside the camera; blurry long-zoom and low-light shots; laggy reaction time when switching modes; GPS features aren’t preloaded on camera
