The Samsung ST150F supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years also support Wi-Fi.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras which support Wi-Fi and we think because of it's better review score, the Lumix DMC-GM5, and the DMC-GX7 + G VARIO 14-42mm both from Panasonic or the Samsung 200 is also worth considering.

Display

Fairly Large Display Diagonal

The Samsung ST150F has a fairly large display diagonal (3 inches) compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to this camera. Across all the medium megapixel digital cameras that were released more than two years ago the display diagonals range from 2" to 4.8", and the average display diagonal is 2.9".

We compared all the other 3" screen digital cameras to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, and the NEX-6Y both from Sony or the Fujifilm F800EXR is also worth considering.

If this medium megapixel camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Df (£2,039) (3.2"), the D4 (£4,225) (3.2"), or the D4S (£3,379.99) (3.2") all from Nikon which also has a higher rating.
