I bought this camera for its portability, because I so often failed to have a camera with me when a great shot presented itself. I wasn't expecting too much, but was really surprised.

The image quality is nothing short of amazing. The lens seems to have few aberrations anywhere in its very wide zoom range. I don't use the longer focal lengths much but really appreciate that it has the equivalent of 24 mm at the wide-angle end.

This spring has been good for wildflowers here in the desert. I have taken many shots of plants for identification as well as working with flower macros, trying to achieve some "artsy" shots. I'm very happy with the results.

I've also done some videos, notably one of ants being very busy. Looks great on the big screen at 1080p, even though the camera only takes 720.

Of the multitudes of features, the best is wi-fi connectivity. Whenever the computer is on I can let it update the files on the PC. It makes folders for each day automatically and remembers what has already been saved. Works up to hundreds of feet from the router.

It has a "smart" mode which makes all the decisions for you, a "program" mode with more control, and fully manual. The manual mode shows a histogram on screen, so you don't have to guess.

Some nitpicking: The screen looks great in anything but direct sunlight; working outdoors can be difficult sometimes. While most images are nearly free of noise, noticeable noise appears in some, inexplicably. Sometimes autofocus isn't quite accurate. Given the price, feature set, and extreme portability of the camera, I can live with those little details.

Color: White Verified Purchase
Update (October 2012):

There are a few reviews on this camera from people who did not delve into the complex settings of the device you are looking at. Their reviews unfortunately dragged down the star ratings to an unrealistic rating. This camera is great! Image quality is great! However, I have not used the automatic mode very much. You will get amazing quality pictures when you spend time on your shots. There are simple settings like ISO (light sensitivity), aperture, and shutter speed. Toggling these settings will create awesome pictures worthy of your family album, Facebook profile, and personal website.

I wanted a great camera to capture the beautiful landscapes of my life in the Midwest. However, I did not want a big fat DSLR-style camera or a compact camera with 5x zoom. And why not spring for the attractive white version?

Prime shipping is awesome. I received this in less than 24 hours.

Like I did, you may be reading critic and user reviews on various models and you'll be dazzled with each different variation on the same technology. This is an ultra-zoom compact camera which combines automated settings with the ability to vary settings manually, just as the pros do! The critics will say this or that about a camera, but they seem to me to always recommend the newest $300 model.

This camera has an 18x zoom which can be used for both photos and videos. It has a 3-inch LCD screen and a dedicated video record button.
You can actually edit photos during and after taking them, with different effects and scenes that may remind you of Instagram on your smartphone.

I based my purchase mainly on the WI-FI, 18x ZOOM, and compatibility of my Samsung Galaxy phone. First of all flash your camera to the latest firmware (May,2012). Install the CD on your computer and there's pull-down for firmware upgrade, follow instructions, if you get lost, there's a blurb on YouTube on how to flash your camera. Connect your camera to a wifi access point then begin uploading to SkyDrive, Picasa, FB. Post directly to FB. You'll need to create an account on SkyDrive to upload to the Cloud. I use DropBox I can appreciate saving to the cloud. Enable your phone to "hotspot" then use your phone to connect to the Web. I'm an avoid DSLR user so I wanted something that can be used traveling rather than carrying a gigantic DSLR. The HD video is 720p and it's fine for my needs. It's a lot more stable than my JVC 3CCD HD 1080p, video is very stable. Reviews say the color is most accurate and it's true, very vivid images. You may want to mess with the general settings of contrast, brightness and color density to get it just right. I TOTALLY recommend the Samsung WB150! I'll post more as I begin getting into the guts of this camera.

UPDATE: 8/17/2012: It's been 2.5 months and a 10 day vacation in the Caribbean. Took over 2500 pics. I still think it's a good camera, but it's not without it's faults. After a few shots, my WB150 froze up and the only way to fix this to pull the battery. I purchased 2 after-market batteries (non-Samsung) and it seemed to be OK, but I'm suspecting the 3rd party battery might be causing the freezing. The copying from camera to smartphone had gotten real slow. I assume it might be due to the amount of data on the 32GB drive.
