  • 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.

  • Conclusion: The Samsung WB850F is a compact superzoom camera with a wider-than-average lens, GPS, and Wi-Fi, but its a little slow to start and shoot, and image quality suffers at higher ISO settings.
  • Pros: Sharp lens. Wi-Fi. GPS. Long zoom range. Crisp OLED display.
  • Cons: Slow to start and shoot. Loss of detail at higher ISOs. Poorly placed flash release.

  • 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.
  • Cons: Wind noise on movies; Poor battery life.

  • 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

  • Conclusion: So, if you were planning on buying the WB850F based on these special features, think again. If you're happy to disregard these extras you'll still find a great camera that's well built, takes great pictures and has a very handy zoom.
