Samsung WB210 Review

If you thought only expensive DSLR cameras can take great pictures, let the Samsung WB210 prove you wrong. The combination of the 14 Megapixel 1/2.3” CCD image sensor and the Schneider-KREUZNACH 24mm ultra-wide lens capable of a 12X optical zoom proves to be quite effective, since whether your subject is close or far, the result will be an exceptional picture. The Optical Image Stabilization also has a say in this, ensuring maximum picture clarity even if the camera is not in a steady position while taking the shot.

Also contributing to the perfect picture are the integrated smart features and filters, such as Face Detection, Blink Detection, Smile Detection and Red-eye Fix. The Smart Filter 2.0 allows you to bring a more personal touch to your pictures by giving your subjects a miniaturized look, enhance the colours by adding compositional contrast or add some interesting distortions with the Fish Eye effect. The Beauty Shot and Self Portrait make portrait photos just as you have always wanted them – perfect – by removing facial imperfections or dark circles around the face.

Photos are not the only specialty of the Samsung WB210, as it can also record HD quality videos at 720p. You can view your recorded videos or pictures on the generous 3.5” LCD display. The interesting part is that the display is not only used for viewing but also accessing the menus and settings. As you may have guessed we’re talking about a touchscreen display here which, with the help of the very intuitive user interface similar to the one found on the Samsung mobile phone, operating the Samsung WB210 is a pure pleasure.

The Auto settings are quite useful for amateur photographers but the Samsung WB210 also has something for the more experienced. The ISO can be manually set from 80 to 3200 and the exposure compensation can be set to + or – 2, adjustable in 1/3 EV steps. Also for the more experienced is the optional wide angle conversion lens unit with a focal length of 3.5mm, allowing super wide shots to be taken.

When it comes to storage, the camera is fitted with 10 Megabytes of internal memory, expandable by a micro SD card or micro SDHC card.

The Samsung WB210 is powered by a BP85A Lithium ion battery (included) which gives it an autonomy of about 210 shots per charge cycle. Also included is a USB cable, wrist or neck strap, image editing software and a software piece used to download the contents from the camera to the PC.

Stop your hunt for cheap cameras, as there aren’t many cameras that are so well equipped in this price range. Get yours now from tesco.com.
