Good Point-and-Shoot Digital for Day-to-Day and, Most Importantly, Travel
on August 14, 2011
I am an avid photographer and reluctant global traveler (business). I have, for a number of years, been using a Canon Powershot SD800IS and recently purchased a Samsung WB210 to replace it. There is nothing wrong with the Canon...I just wanted a newer digital point-and-shoot. I have had the WB210 for over two months and have found it to be an excellent replacement.
I have been also been considering adding a high end SLR but each time I get close to a purchase, I think about the convenience of my point-and-shoot, and am not sure I would get the extensive use a high price camera warrants.
I am quick to upload pictures and videos so I have not been too concerned about the battery life as some reviewers. The camera provides for plenty of manual adjustments and I enjoy playing with its magic frames which allows unique framing of shots.
I was most positively surprised by the shadow lighting when shooting subjects that are backlit. Oftentimes, I do not need a flash.
This camera suits my needs and I would recommend it to others without hesitation. November 2012 add: The price has dropped considerably since my purchase making this an even better buy.
