Samsung's WB150F SMART Long Zoom Digital Camera (White) separates itself from the status of a mere point-and-shoot with WiFi functionality for instant sharing and "cloud" storage. When in a hotspot with the WB150F you can upload to social networking sites, sync the camera with other "smart" devices - such as a TV, phone, or tablet - and store files on the Microsoft Skydrive. It's easy; once you're in a WiFi hotspot, just connect using the camera's log-in browser. Additional features of the WiFi connectivity include the use of Auto Backup, for transferring your photos to your PC with a touch and the Remote Viewfinder, for operating the camera from your smartphone, among others.

When it comes to the camera's shooting specs, the WB150F sports respectable functionality, as well. A 14 MP CCD image sensor allows for capture of not only 14 MP still images, but also 720p (30fps) video. A 24mm Schneider wide-angle lens, with 18x optical zoom and Dual Image Stabilization, also helps you capture clear, precise images. And the 3.0" (7.6 cm) LCD screen provides a generous platform on which to compose and review shots or scenes. Additional features include a full manual mode (A / S / M), Samsung's Smart Filter 3.0, and Live Panorama.

Image Quality
14MP CCD image sensor delivers superior image quality. The large 3.0" (7.6 cm) TFT (460K) LCD screen is great for framing and offers enhanced contrast and color. It also detects ambient light and adjusts brightness for the best possible viewing conditions. Capture beautiful HD 1280 x 720p video at 30fps (or 15fps); other available resolutions include 640 x 480 and 320 x 240, both at 30 and 15fps
Optics
Benefit from an 18x optical zoom 24mm Schneider wide-angle lens that lets you get closer to your subject while still fitting everything in-frame. Whether you're capturing a wide-open vista or a detailed close-up, this lens has you covered. Dual (optical and digital) Image Stabilization helps reduce the effects of camera shake and motion blur for clear images. Choose your settings with full manual mode (A / S / M) for total control, including Aperture and Shutter Priority
Smart Filter 3.0
Gives you creative freedom. Cartoon Filter imbues any photo with the look of an animated film scene, while Cross Filter makes light sources seem to have multiple points of light - like stars. Additionally, Zooming Shot adds motion lines to make it appear that you're accelerating towards your subject. Water Paint, Oil Painting, Half Tone Dot and many more features add more ways for you to express your creativity

Remote Viewfinder

Available for select smartphones, the Remote Viewfinder app allows you to preview images, adjust camera settings, zoom in and out, frame scenes, and tag the shot with the location - all from your phone - wirelessly. Capture the perfect group shots every time, even when you're in them

        I use this camera to take pictures of my travels in Europe. I need a camera with a decent zoom and the abilty to post directly from my camera. All the awesome settings are just a bonus! I just wish it had a bit better zoom but, for this price, it's awesome!

        I wanted a camera that was a little bigger but compact I wanted a camera that was almost just a point and shoot. I was attracted to the Wifi capability. I is everything I wanted (met my specs) and at a price much less than the sale price at a famous BigBox store. No tax, no shipping, no brainer. Love it.

          Comments about WB150F SMART Long Zoom Digital Camera (Black):

          This was purchased as a Christmas gift for my 12 year old daughter, who is wanting to learn more about photography. We couldn't afford to buy her a DSLR, but wanted her to have more than just a simple point and shoot camera. This one has way OVER delivered!

          I love the full manual controls, which she can use to learn proper exposure. It also has some really cool features that aren't even available on my Nikon D90, like built-in Wifi uploading to social media sites and panoramic mode. Other small cameras in this price range were limited to 5x-6x zoom, but this one goes up to 18x optical! The test shots have had much better than expected quality and the overall build of the camera feels very well put together with a good weight in hand, not at all like some of the lightweight cheap plastic competition.

          I would only refer friends and family to Nikon or Canon products in the past, but they REALLY need to step up their game if they want compete with the latest from Samsung!

          I bought this because of the wifi feature. However, the set-up is not very intuitive, there was no explanation of how to do it in the manual provided.

          Also, an SD card was not included with the camera, which made it not very useful for taking more than a few pictures.

            Comments about WB150F SMART Long Zoom Digital Camera (Black):

            At first I got the older SH100 to use on top of a pole for high angle photography, but it's quality was very sub standard. It also wouldn't pair with the Samsung Galaxy SII on Sprint, because Sprint wants to charge you a monthly fee to use the WiFi connection. I rooted the phone and made it work, and this new WB150F worked right out of the box. I don't know if it would work on an unrooted Sprint phone or not, but you might want to check :-/

            The quality of the image is nothing to write home about. It is about as good as the phone's camera, actually, but much better than the SH100 it replaces, and acceptable for 8x10 prints. The image, when viewed on a computer at 100% is just way over-compressed and over-sharpened, even at it's highest quality settings.

            It is loaded with all kinds of bells and whistles, all of which work fine for small, web sized images. They are hokey, but fun for the first couple of minutes. Samsung would have been much better off making the image quality good before worrying about Panoramas and Fancy added backgrounds and Sepia toning.

            The Special effects, including using the Remote viewfinder, are all at a smaller MP size than the camera is capable. When shooting via he Remote viewfinder, you can only use the 4320×2432 super wide format 10 MP setting (or the 2mp setting). That makes for a usable 8x10 print image of well under 7mp. From a 14mp camera with bad image quality to begin with, this is pretty unacceptable :-( Why on earth they would cut off the top and bottom of the 14 image sensor for this application is mind boggling!

            BUT (That's a mighty big but you have there) If you need something for remote shooting, and have one of the few phones/tablets that Samsung makes that are compatible with this camera, you have no choice but to get it :-) It works far better than the previous camera and Monitor and cords and shutter release that we uses before.

            Make no mistake, this is a fine little snapshot point and shoot, but it doesn't go any farther than that :-\
