WB350 16.3MP SMART Camera (Brown)

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 163 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Point N Shoot, Great Zoom, Fast & Simple Operation I like the size and lack of bulkiness even though it packs a nice F2.8 to 5.9 23mm lens. The picture quality is as good if not better than my old travel camera the12mp Lumix FZ-35 and the WB350F has an even more powerful 21X Zoom. Wifi connection to a phone or tablet works well for transfers. I was hung up wanting a pivot LCD for selfies but found the remote viewfinder with remote shutter release was all I needed and I like the simplicity and durability of the fixed LCD of this camera. Especially when slipping in and out of pockets or bags. It has a Wifi baby monitor too. It was challenge connecting to my laptop, so many times I would just email pics from the camera if needed. Low light performance is not to bad for a sensor of this size. Just be prepared to choose well lit areas or turn on more lights when taking indoor photos without a flash. If you still need more light, the popup flash is of the bendy bouncy variety and peppy, so you can reduce or increase flash output by 2 stops in camera and bouncing to soften/fill works very effectively. The special effects that this camera has are interesting and fun and I am glad there are full manual control available. Auto works well, however I find myself in Program mode which allows use of digital zoom in addition to optical, giving upto 42x Intelli Zoom. Its hard to hold these shots steady so the Image Stabilization helps considerably. Sharpest shots with be at less than full zoom usually and this can be expected from optics in general. Video is just fine for me and you can zoom smoothly during recording. On board stereo mics quietly record satisfactory audio, but there are no audio jacks for input or output. I like the colors this camera generates and rarely adjust color saturation as is also available. Battery life seems to be pretty good and I like just carrying a USB to Micro USB A/V and not keeping up with a specific charger. The Micro SD card this camera uses is of no concern to me as I find myself Direct Linking to an iPad 2, iPad Mini 2, iPad Air 2 or my trusty MotoG Android. Lastly, the touch screen is a treat and the touch focus and touch shutter are handier than I thought they would be. I doubt I'll ever go back to a non-touch screen camera. May 22, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by would NOT connect with iPhone The camera did not perform as advertised. I bought it to be able to transfer photos to my iPhone. My camera & phone just plain refused to work. May 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Style, great features & affordable I've had this Samsung WB350F for only a month, still working out all the excellent features this camera has including it's WIFI for sharing photos. Love the 21x optical zoom lens and 3 inch touch screen. It's size is sturdy and great for traveling, love the retro design. Samsung products are extremely reliable, I'm sure the longer I use the features the better it will get. May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and great results My last 5 cameras were from another well known company. I needed a new camera & tried a new model on sale, not expensive. I was very disappointed with it & returned it. I decided to try the Samsung smart camera since I was very satisfied with my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 & needed something compatible for a lots of pictures. What a nice surprise. Beyond my expectations. I think from now on, my loyalty will switch to Samsung for few other products like TV etc.... Quality is there. May 9, 2015
