Lens System

Quite Small Digital Zoom

At only 2 times zoom factor, the Samsung WB35F has a very small digital zoom compared to most of the other cameras of this spec and age. Across all the digital cameras of a similar spec and age to this digital camera the digital zooms range from 1x to 120x, and the average digital zoom is 6.6x.

There are a number of alternative 2x digital zoom digital cameras currently available which you might want to look at including because of their better review scores, the FinePix S8400, the FinePix Z1000EXR, or the HS30 all from Fujifilm.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to consider the DMC-SZ8 (4x and higher rated), or the Lumix DMC-TS30 (4x and higher rated) both from Panasonic.

Average Optical Zoom

The Samsung WB35F has a relatively typical optical zoom (12 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other cameras of this type and age.

We compared all the other 12x optical zoom cameras to this camera and we think because of their better review scores, the S6800 (£189.46), and the S6600 (£184.99) both from Nikon or the Canon SX150 IS are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the Kodak Pixpro FZ151 (£94) (15x and higher rated), the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (20x and higher rated), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ56 (20x and higher rated).
