See deeper, go wider, get closer with the WB650
Have it all, literally, with the Samsung WB650. It's the first to combine a 24mm ultra wide angle lens with an up close and personal 15x optical zoom. With more options and a deeper perspective, you'll capture more fun out of every moment and relive each detail with artistic depth and perspective, and with absolute ease. And you'll be able to fit more in frame when objects seem too close. Whether it's an extended family around an even more extended dining room table or a sprawling landscape, the WB650 lets you get the most out of life.
Never forget a place with Geo-tagging.
Where in the world are you? With the WB650's built-in GPS and Geo-tagging capability, you'll always know where you stand, literally, and you'll never forget where that fantastic photo was shot. From the Grand Canyon to the Great White Way and the Golden Gate Bridge, the WB650 will pinpoint your location and put it up on your LCD for all (or just you) to see. And you can use the same geographic information to easier manage large volumes of photos on your memory card or computer hard drive*
* Map view mode works only when map data is downloaded separately on to your external memory card.
