22 Reasons For

Good Brand

Samsung has good average reviews for its bridge camera digital cameras as well as across its entire digital camera range compared to other brands.

Good Quality Lens

One person who reviewed it thought it had a good zoom. Four years ago expert review site Pinoytechblog.com wrote “A 16.2 megapixel super-zoom camera that provides an impressive 26x of zoom, costs Php9,990”.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years. 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.

We compared all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L120, the HP D3500, and the Olympus SP-620UZ is also worth considering.

Supports Video Recording

supports video recording

The Samsung WB100 supports video recording. Most of the other cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the WB100 do not support video recording.

We compared this camera to all the other cameras which support video recording and we think the Nikon Coolpix L120, the Fujifilm FinePix SL260, and the Olympus SP-620UZ which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

Like most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years, the Samsung WB100 has a built-in flash.

There are a number of other digital cameras with a built-in flash currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the FinePix HS30EXR (£317.00), or the FinePix S6800 both from Fujifilm or the Nikon Coolpix L120.

Has an Image Stabiliser

Like most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the WB100, the Samsung WB100 has an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other cameras with an image stabiliser to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L120, the Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR (£317.00), and the Samsung WB110 is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite High Megapixel Count

With a megapixel count of 16.2 megapixels, the Samsung WB100 has one of the higher megapixel counts amongst bridge camera digital cameras of this age. The lowest megapixel count of bridge camera digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the WB100 is 12MP and the highest is 21MP.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 16.2MP cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-HX100V.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a higher megapixel count then you might want to consider the Fujifilm FinePix S1 (£179.00) (16.4MP), or the Samsung WB2200F (£286.89) (16.4MP) which is also higher rated.

This digital camera has an Auto white balance mode, which is the most frequently found white balance mode found on bridge camera digital cameras that were released more than two years ago. The white balance modes "Cloudy", "Custom modes", "Daylight", "Fluorescent", "Fluorescent H" and "Tungsten" are also found on this camera.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Maximum Memory Card Size

At 64 gigabytes, the Samsung WB100 has a fairly large maximum memory card size compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that were launched around the same time as the WB100. The maximum memory card sizes of digital cameras of a comparable age and spec to the WB100 range from 8GB to 130GB.

Chart Edit

4608 X 3456 Still Image Resolution

The Samsung WB100 has a 4608 x 3456 still image resolution which is higher than the 1920 x 1080 still image resolution found on most digital cameras of this type and age. This camera also have still image resolutions of 1024 x 768, 1984 x 1488, 2592 x 1944, 3648 x 2736 and 4608 x 2592 and 4608 x 3072.

That's over three times the video resolution of the most common video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels (which is also supported by this Samsung digital camera). In addition, this camera supports a video resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. A video resolution of 1280 x 720 is classified as HD and TVs supporting this resolution are referred to as "HD Ready". However the resolution is not as detailed as Full HD (1920 x 1080). The video resolution of all cameras of this age and spec ranges from 320 x 240 pixels to 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Chart Edit

TFT Display

The Samsung WB100 has a TFT display which is better than the LCD display found on most bridge camera digital cameras that are a similar age to it. TFT LCDs provide better image quality and higher resolutions to earlier LCD displays but their limitations are narrow viewing angles and poor vislibility in direct sunlight.

This digital camera's display (TFT) is actually the best display across all digital cameras of a comparable type and age to the WB100.

The worst display across comparable types of digital camera is LCD.

11 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

Based on two expert reviews from sites including Chip.de and parentesis.com the average expert rating of this digital camera is 61 out of 100. The camera expert review sites aren't convinced by this camera.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

Most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the WB100 support Full HD video, however the Samsung WB100 does not support Full HD video.

We compared all the other digital cameras which also support Full HD video to this camera and we think the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS, the Fujifilm FinePix S8400, or the Nikon Coolpix L830 (£199.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Samsung WB100 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec cameras that came out around the same time as the WB100 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other digital cameras which also support WiFi connectivity to this camera and we think the FinePix S8400, or the FinePix S9400 both from Fujifilm or the Samsung WB1100F which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other digital cameras of this age and type, the Samsung WB100 is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

5 Other reasons to consider the Samsung WB100

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this camera was released.

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 3 inches, the Samsung WB100 has a pretty average screen size compared to most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the WB100.

We compared all the other 3" screen digital cameras to this camera and we think the FinePix S9400, and the FinePix HS30EXR (£317.00) both from Fujifilm or the Nikon Coolpix L120 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is typical of many bridge camera digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other cameras that support an SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including the Samsung WB110 which has better reviews.

If the memory card type of this Samsung camera is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Nikon Coolpix L120 (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Samsung WB1100F (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR (£317.00) (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

Average Optical Zoom

At 26 times zoom factor, the Samsung WB100 has a pretty average optical zoom compared to most of the other cameras of a similar age and spec to the WB100.

We compared this camera to all the other 26x optical zoom digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the X-S1 (£449.00), and the FinePix SL260 both from Fujifilm or the Nikon Coolpix L810 is also worth considering.

If this camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the FinePix HS30EXR (£317.00) (30x), or the FinePix S6800 (30x) both from Fujifilm or the Canon PowerShot SX510 HS (30x) which also has a higher rating.

Average Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 5 times zoom factor, the Samsung WB100 has a pretty average digital zoom compared to most of the other similar spec digital cameras that were released around the same time as the WB100.
