Samsung ST150F Smart Camera Unboxing & Review

26 Reasons For

Owner Reviews Are Good

People who bought this Samsung digital camera rated this digital camera 86 out of 100 on average.

Good Size

Several Samsung ST150F reviewers who reviewed it thought it was compact. Ephotozine.com wrote three years ago “The Samsung ST150F is a compact camera with a 5x optical zoom lens” in their review of this digital camera. Ephotozine.com also wrote “The Samsung ST150F is a very compact camera, with a 3inch screen”. Also three years ago expert website Photographyblog.com said “The Samsung ST150F is a 16.2 megapixel compact camera with a 5x, 25-125mm optically-stabilized lens in an ultra-slim body that is only 18mm thick” in their review of this digital camera.

Good Connectivity

A few Samsung ST150F owners who purchased the Samsung ST150F thought it was wifi compatible. Three years ago expert website Photographyblog.com wrote in their Samsung ST150F review “A 3 inch LCD screen, built-in wi-fi capability”.

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Samsung digital cameras and also specifically for Samsung compact camera digital cameras and found that in both cases Samsung had good ratings compared to other brands.

Robust

Two people who reviewed it agreed that it was well made. Three years ago Ephotozine.com mentioned “As a Samsung camera with built in Wi-Fi” in their Samsung ST150F review but they only gave the product a score of 60 out of 100.

Good Quality Lens

One person mentioned in their reviews that the Samsung ST150F had a good lens. One person thought the product had a good zoom. Three years ago Ephotozine.com wrote in their review of this digital camera on expert website Ephotozine “Samsung ST150F Features A 5x optical zoom lens and 16”.

Good Screen / Viewfinder

One Samsung ST150F owner reckoned that the Samsung ST150F had a good screen.

Reasonably Priced

One person who purchased the Samsung ST150F thought it was good value for money. Imaging-Resource.com wrote on expert website Imaging Resource.com “Don't have a lot of money to spend? The Samsung ST150F is the most affordable to join the family so far this year” in their review.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many similar spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

There are a number of alternative cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available which you might want to consider including the Samsung ST90[plb_1216_price], the Olympus VG-180[plb_1873256_price], or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS40[plb_1786919_price] which has better reviews.

The screen sizes of digital cameras that have been around for a similar time to the ST150F range from 1" to 4.8", and the average screen size is 2.8". At 3 inches, the Samsung ST150F has a quite large screen size compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that came out around the same time as the ST150F.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 3" screen digital cameras and we think the IXUS 230 HS[pl_1504252_price], and the IXUS 115 HS[pl_1526810_price] both from Canon or the Sony DSC-WX300[plb_1621847_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this compact camera camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the J1455[pl_1773004_price] (5.7x and higher rated), the A1455[pl_1772760_price] (5.7x and higher rated), or the J1250[pl_1773000_price] (5.7x and higher rated) all from GE.
