Build and Design
The Samsung WB250 is a light-weight point and shoot digital camera that’s easily portable. The camera’s body is made of plastic-type material and it weighs about 6.8 oz and measures 2.4 in (h) x 4.2 in (w) x 1.3 in (d). It has gone through a couple of modifications from the primary design of its predecessor, the Samsung WB150F. Most noticeably are the new touch-screen display and the enhanced positioning of the popup flash.
The WB250F offers a 3 inch TFT LCD touch screen made up of 460,000 dots. It’s clear and painless to see. However, using the camera in shiny conditions will make the display somewhat hard to see. You can choose to alter the settings through the touch-screen or using the buttons.
This camera has the same set of features like most other point-and-shoot digital cameras. The menu is easy to navigate. Even people with very little photographic experience could easily use the auto-mode or, if wanted, you can discover the camera’s functionality via a tutorial based menu. Both the modes and menus are user-friendly.
The WB250F comes with a 14.2 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor with 18X zoom-lens covers a 24-432mm. This is absolutely a fantastic zoom lens, particularly when you realize how stream-lined this camera is. Also, you can make use of the Intelli-Zoom feature to get even closer to the subject. However keep in mind, the camera’s extra zoom feature doesn’t deliver the sharpest results. The zoom lens has a f/3.2 – 5.8 aperture range. The grade of the pictures is incredible, although with a few shadows and lights.
Wi-Fi functionality works very well. Images can be quickly moved to smartphones without any hesitation. You can directly connect it to an Android 2.2 powered or higher smartphone or tablet or iOS 4.3 or higher version device using Wi-Fi.
The camera features 9.5 MB of internal memory. The WB250F also welcomes SD, SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Images are saved in JPG file format and movies are taped as MP4 files.
If you’re in search of a camera that is compact, lightweight, easy to use with good performance and image quality, this Samsung WB250F is a right choice for you at an affordable price tag of less than £100.
