3 Other reasons to consider the Samsung WB850F

Released Over Five Years Ago

It was over five years ago when Samsung released the WB850F.

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the Samsung WB850F has a fairly average digital zoom compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been around for a similar time to the WB850F.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4x digital zoom cameras currently available including the PowerShot SX220 HS, or the PowerShot A3300 IS both from Canon which has better reviews.

If this compact camera camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Canon IXUS 500 (4.1x and higher rated), or the Samsung WB150F (5x and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

MOS Sensor Type

The Samsung WB850F has a MOS sensor type which is better than most compact camera digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as it. Most cameras of a similar age and spec to it have a CCD sensor type.

We compared all the other cameras that have a CMOS sensor to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10, and the Samsung GC100 (£259.74) is also worth considering.

If the sensor type of this compact camera camera is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Canon PowerShot A3300 IS (CCD), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT4 (£189.99) (CCD) which also has a higher rating.
