From the Manufacturer
Take crystal-clear photos and stunning video with the WB250F Smart Camera from Samsung. With features such as a 14.2-megapixel backside-illuminated sensor and an 18x zoom lens, the WB250F gives you the creative freedom to take great photos even in low-light situations. And with built-in Wi-Fi, you can easily and quickly share your best shots.
The 14.2-megapixel BSI sensor is optimal for low-light performance. View larger.
A brilliant 3-inch touch display features easy navigation. View larger.
14.2-Megapixel Backside-Illuminated CMOS Sensor
The WB250F is equipped with a 14.2-megapixel backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor that gathers more light than conventional sensors. This allows you to take properly exposed images in low-light situations. With the Low Light Shot feature, the camera will automatically merge three continuous shots into one clear photo.
Sharp 18x Zoom Lens Provides Plenty of Range
The built-in lens has an 18x zoom range so you can easily frame the exact shot you want and get in close to the action when necessary. The lens starts at a wide 35mm-equivalent focal length of 24mm and zooms all the way to 432mm. With such a large zoom range, you'll have no problem getting everyone into the photo or zooming in on something far away.
Compose Shots on a 3-inch Hybrid Touch Display
On the back of the camera is a brilliant, 3-inch display that lets you compose and review your photos comfortably and accurately. The display has a hybrid user interface that lets you use either the five-way button for menu navigation if you prefer traditional controls or your fingers if you prefer touch controls. Either way, the intuitive navigation makes setting controls and sharing images a snap.
Full HD Video Recording
The WB250F captures lifelike video at 1,080p Full HD resolution. The camera shoots video in the H.264 format, which allows you to record for longer than cameras using MJPEG video.
Wi-Fi Connectivity for Easy Sharing and Facebook Upload
Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, transferring your images and sharing them no longer requires memory cards or cables. You won't have to worry about running out of space, either.
With the dedicated Direct Link hot key, you can quickly connect to Wi-Fi networks. Once connected, you can save photos and videos directly to a computer or cloud service as you shoot. Print photos wirelessly or share them with your friends instantly by uploading them straight to Facebook or YouTube. With dual band Wi-Fi support, you'll have faster and more stable connections to the wireless networks around you.
Connect to Your Smartphone for More Features
The WB250F works with Samsung's Smart Camera App (for iPhone and Android), which lets you instantly pair your camera with your smartphone and gives you features such as AutoShare and Remote ViewFinder.
When AutoShare is activated, all the pictures you take on your camera are automatically sent to your smartphone. Remote ViewFinder turns your phone into a viewfinder and lets you preview images, adjust camera settings, frame the scene, and tag the shot location from up to 30 feet away. When you need to take a group shot with yourself in it, Remote ViewFinder makes it easy.
Cloud Service Backup with Microsoft SkyDrive
Never worry about losing your photos, even if your camera is lost or stolen. If your camera is connected to Wi-Fi, the WB250F will automatically copy the images you take to a Microsoft SkyDrive account. This feature not only automatically backs up all your photos, but also lets you easily make more room on your memory card by deleting shots without fear you'll lose them.
Smart Auto 2.0 for Sharp Shots Every Time
The Smart Auto 2.0 feature automatically analyzes the current shooting environment and chooses the right mode to give you the best possible picture. And Smart Face Recognition remembers the faces of up to 20 of your friends and family and automatically focuses on them first, so your important subjects are always clear.
Product Dimensions and Weight
The WB250F measures 2.43 by 4.18 by 0.85 inches (H x W x D) and weighs 0.41 pounds.

I wondered how point and shoot cameras were going to keep up and this camera is an excellent example. This camera is by far better than any cell phone just with the wide angle and zoom capabilities. With the added sharing, touch screen, and intuitiveness that is integrated it makes it an very neat relatively compact device. It's not as compact as some but way smaller than the larger zoom cameras and is a great compromise.
I have seen a couple cameras with gps and I know one was powered by android. Nice features but I did not see the benefit of having a lot of those features on my camera when I have them on my phone? Also, the price of that camera was significantly more.
Also something to note. This camera actually has a low light sensor that compensates for the light level versus detecting the light level and adjusting the shutter speed.Read more ›
This was my main consideration when buying a new camera. I have to say that the camera does not disappoint me at all. I've taken indoor low light pics, as well as outdoor pictures of my dogs running around at full speed with only the automatic settings, and the pictures have all come out better than expected. Action shots are frozen and crisp, and close up portraits are significantly better than I expected, not $1200 DLSR quality, but for a sub $200 point and shoot, WAY better than expected - I doubt the average person could tell the difference. The portraits show clear subject, no distortion, excellent color and shallow depth of field just like a DLSR and all on auto settings.
Video quality is good, the 1080p video looks decent - the image stabilization is good but not great. The main drawback is that there is a very noticeable noise picked up by the microphone when zooming. - again for a cheap point and click to use for occasional video the quality is good. To use as a primary video camera and create your next masterpiece, not so good.
One nice thing about video is that you can just press the red video button on the back of the camera to begin recording. You don't have to find a special setting etc... so it's very quick and easy to go into video mode. The other nice thing is that while videoing you can still take pictures with no effect on the video.
The photo features are what you would expect for a camera in this range.Read more ›
I'll touch on some points below, having already posted some thoughts in replies to other reviews here and on the older WB150F model's pages. Your opinions might obviously vary from mine, but please TEST the camera before you question/comment :-)
With the WB250F, image quality is quite good. I've used the P (program) mode, the Auto and the Scene modes. I'm planning to post pics on Google+ using the hashtag #POAB and maybe even a comparison with the Sony HX10V and my older workhorse compact, the Samsung v70 (1/1.8 inch CCD sensor).
For indoor use, I set ISO to 200. The flash power was adequate and image quality was good, too.
The ability to change settings using the physical buttons, the touchscreen or a combination of both definitely makes this WB250F camera fun to use - and it's often faster than scrolling though menus.
The placement of the pop-up flash, closer to the middle of the body is much more ergonomic than many other cameras.Read more ›
