The Samsung WB800F does a good job of delivering the ease of touch
screen navigation and Wi-Fi photo sharing without abandoning key
photographic features. The powerful 21X zoom opens a lot of
possibilities, and the inclusion of full manual mode and other
adjustments will appeal to people who don't want to simply point and
shoot. For casual shooters, attractive photo filters make it easy to get
creative results. Though not all features are not top-notch, the WB800F
offers a good number of features for the money. Read more in our Full Conclusion.
Samsung has updated its mobile app, SMART CAMERA 2.0 for many of their new 2013 camera models, announced today at CES 2013. Available for iOS and Android, the upgraded app boasts new features like AutoShare, which sends photos from your digicam straight to your smart phone. Direct Link allows you to assign your favorite WiFi function to a single button. Remote Viewfinder allows you to use your smart phone as a camera display.
The Samsung WB800F features a large 16 megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor (great in low light conditions) and a super long 21x optical zoom lens. The camera is designed, in both still mode or during full 1080p HD video capture, to be control via the 3.0-inch touch screen / hybrid user interface -- basically, it's your choice as to whether you prefer the new, futuristic touch screen controls, or the classic five-way manual key. Speaking of manual, the WB800F also offers full P/S/A/M manual controls. Or, if you prefer, let one of SMART Mode's amazing pre-select settings to do all the hard work for you.
