The Samsung WB30F Smart Digital Camera (Cobalt Black) is a point-and-shoot with a 16.2MP CCD image sensor. It's equipped with a large 3" LCD screen with a 230K-dot resolution. Its 10x optical zoom lens has an effective focal length of 4.3-43mm, equivalent to 24-240mm in 35mm format. Capture HD 720p video at 30fps.
Capture sweeping pan shots with 2D Panorama. Smart Auto takes the calculating and guesswork out of photography by automatically selecting the best settings for a given scene. The WB30F also features a Smart Movie mode. Face, Blink and Smile Detection help you snap photos of people at just the right moments. Other available shooting modes include Program, Scene, Photo Filter, Split Shot, Motion Photo, Close Up, Magic Frame, Live Panorama, Beauty Shot and Night Shot.
Smart Camera features include Wi-Fi and email, as well as a Direct LINK hot key to help you quickly connect to Wi-Fi networks. Download the Samsung Smart Camera App to get Mobile Link, Remote Viewfinder and AutoShare, rather than downloading each individually. Instead of launching the apps one at a time on your smartphone, you can open all three simultaneously with the touch of a finger.
Mobile Link lets you select and send an image or album directly to an Android smartphone, iPhone or tablet; you need not even send the image as a text message or as an email. Make updates to the album on your phone and the changes will be saved to your camera, too.
The Remote Viewfinder function enables you to control your camera by using your smartphone as the viewfinder (available for select smartphones). You can preview images, adjust camera settings, zoom in and out and frame each scene. AutoShare allows you to simultaneously send every picture you take to your mobile phone via Wi-Fi. Just set it up once and the camera saves it as the default setting. AutoShare also GPS tags your photos with your smartphone.
MS Skydrive provides access to the cloud for file sharing and storage. Upload your photos and videos to social media sites like Facebook, Picasa and YouTube and enjoy easy wireless transfers of photos and videos to your PC or Mac with Auto Backup. Also enjoy AllShare Play, which lets you connect to all devices that support it. Wirelessly stream photos and videos from your camera to nearby devices to share with friends and family at once, or simply upload to web storage instantly for easy management. The WB30F also has Family Story, a Software Upgrade Notifier and a Mini Log-in Browser. The camera runs on a lithium-ion battery and is equipped with a microSD/microSDHC memory card slot.
Lots of bells and whistles that are not user friendly. Getting used to photos. Seems bad with no flash but to bright with flash. Trouble figuring out how to post photos wi-fi
Love this camera! It does everything and is very easy to use. Another terrific feature is that it's so compact.
Camera is little but takes excellent photos. Would definitely recommend this product.
I am very pleased with the operation and features of this camera. But I am HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED with the battery life. I took a lot of picture on vacation and the battery did not last very long at all (only a few hours). I had to rely on my phone to use as back up when my camera battery died. Now I have to go through the trouble of taking photos off my phone and transferring them to the my computer and then Mico SD card. I'll have to purchase a few back up batteries for this camera.
I replaced another camera with this one because of the pixels & many features including the WiFi. But it doesn't take as clear pictures as the 12 MP I replaced it with & I find it very difficult & cumbersome to navigate. Especially when you're using it for many pictures one right after the other. The Smart features doesn't work as well as my previous, less expensive camera either. The WiFi works great & uploads pictures to my computer very quickly as well. All in all I would not buy this product again.
love my samsung camera.awesome features and not too expensive
I decided to buy a camera the day before I left for a vacation to Brazil. I couldn't afford anything to fancy, but this camera surpassed my expectations. It took great pictures and I liked the fact that i could upload them straight to my social media sites. The camera was sometimes slow at taking a picture, but it was a great camera at a great value. I'm happy with my purchase.
The cuality of the pictures are realy poor. The LCD image is unclear I don't realy know what's wrong whith the focus......terrible!
I have shot more than1000 photos with my new camera and I believe that it is amazing!!! First of all the photos are always excellent and they are never shaken. The menu is easy to use and I can make quickly the settings. Moreover, I like very much the ability of the camera to upload my photos at facebook and in my cloud. But the most useful of all is that I can e-mail the photos really quickly to my friends. Everything happens very fast. Furthermore, there are many photo effects and my children have fun. And the price was very low...
I was able to capture quick action shots and immediately send them via email or post to social media. Shots were very clear.
