22 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Camera Reviews

We checked 5,594 expert and owner reviews for Samsung cameras and found that on average Samsung has good reviews. We also found that Samsung has good reviews specifically for its compact camera digital cameras.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many compact camera digital cameras that have been available for a similar 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.

It may also be worth considering one of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including the Samsung WB150F[plb_2060742_price] which has better reviews.

The smallest screen size of cameras of this age and spec is 1", the largest is 4.8", and the average screen size is 2.8". The Samsung WB150 has one of the larger screen sizes (3 inches) amongst compact camera digital cameras of this age.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 3" screen cameras and we think the PowerShot SX270 HS[pl_1496416_price], and the PowerShot G16[pl_1602829_price] both from Canon which has better reviews; or the Nikon Coolpix S9300[plb_408824_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If this compact camera camera screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Samsung GC100[plb_2600424_price] (4.8") which also has a higher rating.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Samsung WB150 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other cameras of a similar type and age to the WB150 do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other cameras which support WiFi connectivity to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the WB150F[pl_2060742_price], and the GC100[pl_2600424_price] both from Samsung is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative cameras which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to look at including the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ61[plb_2226969_price].
