Samsung manufactures versatile interchangeable lens and easy-to-use compact point and shoot digital cameras. The best Samsung point and shoot cameras have simple design supporting light and ultra-compact bodies. Most of the latest Samsung compact cameras are pocketable and come with the much needed snap and share capabilities with advanced connectivity options.

Supporting the various storage options, these cameras can shoot photos of resolution as low as 12 Megapixel, ranging up to 16 Megapixel and even 20.3 Megapixel with the help of CCD sensors for crisp, bright and detailed images. One of the important features to consider while shooting outdoors or travelling is the optical zoom - the Samsung digital cameras offer zoom range from 10x to 21x, to clearly capture the faraway subjects without actually getting closer.

  • A 21x zoom and a wealth of shooting options and wireless features make the Samsung WB800F Smart Camera a fine smartphone accessory.


  • The Samsung WB800F packs a sharp 21x zoom lens and Wi-Fi, but some issues with image and video quality prevent it from getting top marks.


  • As usual, though, the price of the Samsung WB800F is very appealing - an official tag of £249.99 / $299.99, before any shopping around, makes this camera, if not an outright bargain, then certainly cheaper than the rest of the travel-zoom crowd, especially considering the features on offer. Only you can decide if that's all worth sacrificing a little image quality for.


  • For those who want more camera than their smartphone offers without sacrificing the easy sharing, the Samsung WB250F Smart Camera is a good, affordable choice.


  • The Samsung WB250F has a long 18x zoom lens and a top-notch Wi-Fi implementation, but image quality isn't the best we've seen in its class.


  • The Samsung WB250F currently sits just under the £200 mark. That's a little high for a camera of this construction, but the tech makes up for it. From a geek point of view, there's plenty to do with lots of little features and settings to test and play with. From a photographer's point of view, it's a plastic camera with a bad lens and noise at low ISO. If you can look past that, or you don't see what we see, then you'd be perfectly happy with the Samsung WB250F.


  • With dual LCDs and built-in Wi-Fi, Samsung's DV150F Dual-View Smart Camera is an inexpensive problem-solver for those who like to shoot and share.


  • The Samsung DV150F is a fairly capable dual-screen pocket camera with integrated Wi-Fi that delivers more features than its modest price would suggest.


  • At £99 then, if rather unexciting compared to the latest batch of compact system cameras, premium compacts, DSLRs and SLT's, the front and back screen amsung DV150F is really a camera you can't go far wrong with.


  • The high-end Samsung EX2F point-and-shoot offers up fast lens, a swiveling OLED display, and excellent integrated Wi-Fi.


  • The Samsung EX2F seems to be the best compact option at $500, which used to be the average price in this category. We draw a lot of comparisons to the Sony RX100, but it's easy to forget that model costs $150 more than most of the competition. Of course it remains to be seen how many consumers are willing to pay "only" $500, which is already expensive by compact standards, and pony up the extra 30 percent for the RX100, which is clearly a better camera.


  • The Samsung EX2F is a solid upgrade of the EX1, but 2 years is a long time in the world of digital cameras and the EX2F doesn't quite offer enough to keep up with the competition, despite featuring the world's fastest lens on any compact.


  • The Samsung Galaxy Camera offers a great deal of connectivity allowing users to transfer photos from the device to a tablet or phone along with one of the best implementations of connectivity seen to date. The quality of image is good as photos taken in good lighting conditions and at low ISO are relatively sharp and noise free. The camera employs a user interface that is second to none among cameras. The components far exceed any smartphone camera available.

    The Galaxy Camera will start shipping in October. However, its future will depend heavily on its price, which hasn't been announced. While there aren't any digital cameras that pack as many features, otherwise-comparable devices without the internet connectivity, such as Sony's DSC-HX9V, cost around £330.

    This is a tricky thing to evaluate. On the one hand, if we had $500 to spend on a camera of this size, we'd be more likely to spend it on a sophisticated mirrorless model that delivers better image quality. Alternatively, if we needed a cheap compact, we might opt for the Samsung WB850F, which has WiFi connectivity and the same lens and sensor as the Galaxy Camera, but costs half the price.
