Delivers its sharpest
As a dedicated point and shoot camera though, the Samsung WB30F does come with the advantage of that broader than average 10x optical zoom range, and though it is relatively cheap and cheerful, if conditions are right it is possible to achieve favourable results. It's a camera for the holidays for those who want a bit more poke in their pocket in the zoom department, and who will relish using the app-like digital filters in evidence here.
Excellent value for money
The Samsung WB30F offers excellent value for money for a compact camera with 10x optical zoom lens, a 3 inch screen, and built in Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi sharing on this camera is about as easy as it gets, letting you share images on public Wi-Fi, straight to Facebook or other social network sites. Competitors in this market with a 10x optical zoom, and built in Wi-Fi are available, however these tend to cost more, and Wi-Fi sharing isn't always as easy as it is on the Samsung.
High tec and easy to use what more could you ask!
We were looking for an up to date compact camera, small, light weight and easy to use. We found it all and more!
Wi Fi and e-mailing the photo direct from the camera works perfectly. Excellent photo definition with good wide angle and fantastic zoom from a compact, no need to carry my SLR ever again!
Will defiantly be looking at more Samsung equipment!
Truly stands out
So bottom line is, this is a good camera with some really outstanding features, it's really great feel and fun expirience, something making other competitors looks dull and boring. But if those new features make you so excited, you should consider a good smartphone, maybe that is what you really need.
Color, noise, and even handling performance is diminished
The SH100 is, in a way, an example of what not to do when developing new technology. In the process of adding new featuresâ??Wi-Fi in this caseâ??the core of the product has been sacrificed. Color, noise, and even handling performance is diminished. But the worst part is that the Wi-Fi itself barely adds anything at all. And that is what not to do: sacrifice performance for a new feature that wasnâ??t worth it anyway.
Excellent value and obvious appeal to the tech-savvy teen
A compact camera with built-in Wi-Fi, whilst perhaps not an over-riding consideration for the average happy snapper at the point of purchase, certainly has its uses and moreover in the case of the SH100 actually works, and works simply. OK, it's not the only option for sharing photos, but more methods rather than fewer is always welcome.
With prices starting at just over Â£100, the Samsung SH100 has plenty to offer. It's suitable for most users but people going travelling will find it especially useful thanks to the Wi-Fi capability. If you need a pocket camera to take on holiday or you're a social networker that needs immediate connection for your pictures, then this is the camera for you.
The Samsung SH100 is a neat little point-and-shoot that offers innovative built-in Wi-Fi functionality and can more than stand its ground in the image quality stakes too. If wireless connectivity is at the top of your priority list the SH100 is well worth a closer look, especially given that it can now be sourced online for around Â£130. As it is, weâ?? re scoring it a low eight out of ten. If it were not for the poor LCD screen and clunky touch-screen controls, then weâ??
Excellent colour reproduction
In terms of picture quality, performance is consistent with other Samsung compacts we have reviewed of late, with excellent colour reproduction. This particular model differs from the rest with its Wi-Fi connectivity and touch screen which both prove to be a welcome addition. The Wi-Fi means that images and videos can be shared quickly and easily, at home or on the move, on sites such as Facebook. The Smart Filters on offer here are good and they are also available for use on videos as well.
Touchscreen was silky smooth
The SH100â?? s real selling point is its low price. Although it was more upon launch, there are plenty of stores and sites listing various colour options for between Â£105-120. Consider all the technology thatâ?? s been squeezed into this dinky compact and thatâ?? s a real bargain. Sure there are some issues with the touchscreenâ?? s responsiveness and the images are of reasonable rather than great quality, but youâ??
Solid results consistently
The front-facing LCD found on the Samsung PL120 indicatesâ?? at least to usâ?? that this is a camera intended for the most casual of casual users, whose most common framing is the cheek-to-cheek B.F.F. self-portrait, bound for Facebook and tagging and commenting and maybe even some scrapbooking at the end of the semester. Yet the performance is nothing to sneeze at. While the PL120 didnâ?? t shock us with amazing score spikes, this Samsung posted solid results consistently.
It works brilliantly for self portraits
The Samsung PL120 is a camera that can be taken out and about and if it gets damaged then because of the reasonable price it doesn't matter as much. The simple design, while not breaking any new ground, won't make you ashamed to take it out in a crowd. If you're one of these people then you need to take a look at the Samsung PL120.
Good overall build quality
The Samsung PL120 is a camera that can be used by all the family from novice younger users, networking teenagers and proud parents to technophobic grandparents alike. The only problem we can foresee is with people who have larger hands. They probably won't get on with the tiny format or cluttered back. There are a lot of pros to outweigh the cons though.
Good colour reproduction
The Samsung PL120 is ultra compact, features two screens, and offers very good value for money, however, even when scoring highly for value for money, it's simply not enough to bring the overall rating higher than 3/5, as the rest of the camera is mostly average. Sure it's a nice little camera, and looks good, but the image quality disappoints.
Records HD video
The DualView PL120 is the entry level offering in Samsung's 2011 line of digital cameras which feature an extra LCD display on the front of the camera for taking self portraits. Like the next model in this release called the PL170, the front screen is 1.5" whereas the top of the line ST700 has a 1.8" front screen.
