Samsung has upped its game in the camera market with its innovation and creativity. Here is a short review on the WB100 camera:
First off, the WB100 Digital Camera from Samsung features a 26x optical zoom, with its 22-580mm super-zoom lens, and a 16.2MP resolution sensor. The camera records 720p HD movies to capture events as they happen. The WB100 also uses Dual Image Stabilization, with both optical and digital stabilization methods (OIS & DIS), which ensures that the shots will be sharp even when the users hands aren't perfectly steady. The camera’s 16.2MP resolution image sensor, making the photos rich and clear even out to the long end of the optical zoom. Having a high-resolution 1/2.3" CCD sensor is ideal even while creating large prints, and also provides the flexibility to enlarge and crop sections of an image when the user wishes to alter the composition. For a camera this small, having a 26x optical zoom is an outstanding feature that is the 35mm equivalent of an enormous 22-580mm super-zoom lens--without the weight and need for support. This provides a huge range of potential uses when the user must stand back from the action as getting in too close would disrupt the scene that is trying to be captured--or it gets the user tackled. At the other end, the lens' 22mm wide-angle perspective allows the user to capture more scenery and environment in every frame, for more dynamic and exciting shots. The camera’s Dual IS includes optical and digital image stabilization, and it detects the most appropriate camera shake correction methods for any given shooting situation, and applies them. Using Dual IS you can concentrate on the shot images and let the camera worry about the most effective settings, giving the user clearer photos and videos with ease. Additionally, this camera shoots high definition 720p video. In addition to being able to shoot 720p HD video at 25 frames per second, it can also shoot 640 x 480 VGA video at 30 frames per second when the user needs to keep the file sizes low to leave more room in the memory card. The camera has Samsung’s smart filter effects. Cartoon Filter makes any photo look like an animated film, while Cross Filter makes light sources appear look like pointed stars. Magic Frame's various background templates provide ways of changing the location with a click, and with Split Shot user can merge up to three different images to create a blended image of all three.
Design and Display:
In terms of display this camera has a 3-inch LCD display that helps compose images and provides 230-k dot colour interface. This camera accepts SD cards and comes with a 4GB micro SD card. This camera supports four AA batteries and a quick-start guide with warranty documentation.
The Samsung WB 100 camera has an impressive 26 x optical zoom and ultra-wide lens with Dual IS. Its live panorama is an impressive features and it also carries built-in effects and editor. On the downside, this camera has a slightly sluggish performance and has pesky notifications that pop-up on the screen.
