Summary: I was extremely excited to get this camera as my last, much cheaper point and click was now only taking blurry pictures. The first camera I received was broken. I sent it back and ordered another. Unfortunately the only upside about this camera is that it has WIFI which I do like. My daughter is almost 8 months old and this camera is just too slow to get the pictures that I need. If she moves slightly whatever she is moving comes out blurry.
The pics were pretty good, but had mechanical issues

Summary: The pictures were very clear and clean. The flash seems to be pretty powerful for a small camera. The flash photos had a blue tint to them though, that I had to correct in post processing. Those are the good. Here's what I didn't like. The included documentation is very poorly written/translated. The flash takes an unusually long time to recycle. When you first pop up the flash it won't charge up.
Stopped working, cannot be turned on anymore... stay tuned, contacted Samsung for replacement

Summary: I really wanted to like this camera - great specs, all features I really wanted to see. The 3 months the camera worked, it worked well! Good quality pics, GPS relatively fast, WIFI very flexible. But then the camera simply stalled. After I changed the battery (no, battery life is not that great), I could not turn in on anymore. No drop, no water damage - the camera simply stalled. Now, I contacted Samsung and the camera is still covered by warranty.
Summary: I really liked this camera. Just a shame that the lens broke on its own twice. The first time I got it replaced, but the next one did the same thing so ended up getting a refund and went back to Canon!
Summary: After reading the review I wonder whether I had a rogue camera. I was so disappointed with it that I took it back to the retailer and got my money back. The picture quality was noticeably worse than a similarly priced Canon. The response to the shutter button was sometimes non-existent and even when it did respond, the delay was significant.
Pros: Excellent zoom, remote viewfinder via smart phone or iPod, pop-up flash, hi-res screen
Cons: very slow response to shutter button and zoom controls, faulty playback, poor picture quality
Summary: I bought this camera because of the 20x zoom lens and the WiFi feature. As I travel a lot - I wanted to be able to upload my photos online at the end of the day, so in the event my camera got lost or stolen, I would still have my photos safely backed up. However - the cmaera's Wifi browser is clunky to log into, slow, chews through your battery (literally seems you get 10 minutes battery life once connected, so you need to ensure it's plugged in, and worst of all it...
Summary: Vorne weg - zu einem Preis um 200€ habe ich keine Wunder erwartet. Was waren meine Voraussetzungen? Ich such(t)e eine kompakte Reisezoom-Kamera mit GPS und Wlan, die zumindest im unteren ISO Bereich 100-200 gute Fotos am Monitor macht. Die WB850F schien hier auf Grund der guten Rezensionen und mangelns brauchbarer Alternativen (Nikon und Canon hatte ich schon getestet) eine gute Wahl zu sein.
Summary: Ich hatte mich für die Samsung WB850F entschieden, da sie einen tollen Tele-Zoom hat und ich das komplette Paket der Kamerafunktionen (GPS, WiFi, DLNA Server, ...) sehr interessant ist. Man kann direkt von der Kamera die Bilder auf Facebook posten oder auf das Microsoft SkyDrive hochladen. Dieses funktioniert auch sehr gut. Die Bestimmung der Lokation über GPS dauerte zwar einige Minuten, hat aber prinzipiell funktioniert. Das OLED Display ist echt toll.
