SamsungSamsung WB500 camera review : When it comes to the specifications of the WB500, it really does grab the attention, being the world's first camera with a zoom range of 24mm and a total range of 24-240mm (10x), although Panasonic is rapidly catching up on the WB500 with the LUMIX TZ7, 25-300mm (12x). Never-theless, Samsung currently holds the top position in the field of wide angle zoom. Additionally, the Samsung WB500 provides 720p HD video and 10 MP resolution. The automation development increases with every generation, the WB500 is able to retouch a face entirely automatically.

Samsung WB500 review - Camera design
The Samsung WB500 is rather traditional when it comes to its design. The model is square and quite recognizable as a compact camera. The WB500 camera is fairly light, around 240 grams, and therefore easy to carry with you at all times. The housing in itself could be considered reasonably 'flat' if it weren't for the fact that a zoom lens in the shape of a large round disc is mounted on the front. Yet, it is still a remarkably compact size if we consider the camera's 24-240mm optical wide angle zoom lens.

Samsung WB500 test - Megazoom camera for the amateur photographer
The Samsung WB500 is a compact, or rather; a mega zoom camera for the amateur photographer. It is a camera that seems to desire nothing more than ease. And it certainly has been designed for ease. The ease of carrying a compact size camera featuring a light weight along with you, yet still providing a versatile use thanks to its large zoom range. In addition, the emphasis is put on automatic operation, requiring the least effort of thinking and acting while shooting. A goal that is strangely enough not always as easy as it sounds, given the sometimes difficult and confusing operation.

Samsung WB500 review including a DIWA Labs test
The Samsung WB500 mega zoom digital camera is the first in a segment that has been ruled by Panasonic for the last few years. Samsung has big plans as a digital camera manufacturer, and even states the company won't settle for less than the intended market share. Time to take a close look at the Samsung WB500. We tested the WB500 for a period of time, and in combination with the technical results from the DIWA Lab, we have come to a balanced final conclusion. Our findings can be read in the following Samsung WB500 review.
