Harvey mentioned “The new owner absolutely adores itSince purchasing this camera its price has risen sharply, no doubt because it represents fantastic value for money” and scored the product 5 stars. Ringaudas Kirstukas mentioned in their review of the Samsung WB50F on Amazon “Save money for sony rx100”. Stephen Kirkup mentioned “Great little camera easy to use and fantastic price” in his review of this digital camera.

Good Technical Features

Several Samsung WB50F reviewers said that the Samsung WB50F had good features. Irving Scott gave it a score of 5 stars and he wrote on Amazon “Excellent Camera, Excellent results, Superb features, This is my 3rd Version ans the first by Samsung of these brilliant little diamonds”. Mr. P. Harvey gave it a very good review score and mentioned “When making my selection I focussed upon those features the vast majority of purchasers would look for, i.e”.

Good Quality Pictures

Several Samsung WB50F reviewers wrote in their reviews that the Samsung WB50F was able to produce good images. Irving Scott rated the product as excellent and he mentioned in his review on Amazon two years ago “Fully featured and delivers great Pics”.

Good Brand

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

Chart

Good Product Quality

One Samsung WB50F reviewer thought this digital camera was good quality. Abart wrote on Amazon “Fantastic quality pictures” in their review of the Samsung WB50F.

Good Connectivity

One person said in their reviews that the product was wifi compatible. Mr Richard Donohoe mentioned “I can transfer from camera to iPad when both connected to Wifi, very easily” in his review of this digital camera.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that came out around the same time as 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.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the Nikon Coolpix L320 (£177.74) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Samsung WB50F supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec cameras that were released more than two years ago do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras which support WiFi connectivity and we think the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC110 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Fairly High Megapixel Count

The lowest megapixel count of comparable spec cameras that were launched more than two years ago is 0.3MP, the highest is 46MP, and the average megapixel count is 14MP. With a megapixel count of 16.2 megapixels, the Samsung WB50F has a fairly high megapixel count compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that came out around the same time as the WB50F.

We compared all the other 16.2MP cameras to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-WX60 (£114.99) is also worth considering.

If this camera megapixel count is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the GC100 (£259.74) (16.3MP and higher rated), or the Galaxy Camera 2 (£276.00) (16.3MP and higher rated) both from Samsung.

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

With an optical zoom of 12 times zoom factor, the Samsung WB50F has one of the bigger optical zooms amongst cameras of this age. The optical zooms of cameras of this age and type range from 2.7x to 63x, and the average optical zoom is 9.6x.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 12x optical zoom cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix S6800 (£189.46) is also worth considering.

If you want a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the GC100 (£259.74) (21x and higher rated), or the Galaxy Camera 2 (£276.00) (21x and higher rated) both from Samsung.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Quite Small Digital Zoom

When compared to other compact camera digital cameras that have been available for a comparable time to the WB50F that we have checked, the Samsung WB50F's digital zoom of only 2 times zoom factor is one of the smallest. The smallest digital zoom of digital cameras of a similar type and age to the WB50F is 1x, the biggest is 810x, and the average digital zoom is 12x.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 2x digital zoom cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the FinePix X10, and the FinePix F900 both from Fujifilm or the Nikon Coolpix P310 is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger digital zoom then you might also want to consider the Nikon Coolpix S5300 (£166.94) (4x), or the Olympus Stylus SH-60 (4x) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Video Recording

Most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to the WB50F support video recording, however the Samsung WB50F does not support video recording.

It is worth also looking at other cameras which also support video recording including the Fujifilm FinePix X10, or the Samsung WB800F.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Samsung WB50F does not support Full HD video, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago also do not support Full HD video.

There are a number of other cameras which also support Full HD video that you might want to look at including the Exilim EX-ZR700, or the Exilim EX-ZR400 both from Casio or the Fujifilm FinePix X10 which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most compact camera digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago are not 3D compatible. The Samsung WB50F is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you want a digital camera that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Canon PowerShot A3300 IS, or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ36 which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

The Samsung WB50F does not have a GPS, although it is worth noting that most of the other compact camera digital cameras that came out around the same time as the WB50F also do not have a GPS.

Alternative digital cameras which also have a GPS that you might want to look at include the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 (£276.00), the Canon IXUS 140, or the Sony DSC-HX400V (£282.99) which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the Samsung WB50F

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Samsung released the WB50F.

Average Screen Size

At 3 inches, the Samsung WB50F has a fairly average screen size compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the WB50F.
