18x Zoom Lens
The whole wide world is yours to capture. Use the 24mm wide-angle lens to capture stunning landscapes and beautiful panorama shots. Plus, there’s an 18x Optical Zoom that lets you quickly take stunning close-ups from far away, so you can get sharply rendered images.

Wi-Fi Connectivity
Lets you connect your digital camera to a wireless network. Save photos and videos directly to a computer or cloud service while you shoot, email them print them wireless or upload them straight to Facebook® or YouTube™. You will never have to worry about losing a great shot, running out of storage or remembering to bring the correct cable along.

Social Sharing
Instantly post must-see images and videos to your favorite social networks. Just select and upload wherever you have a Wi-Fi® connection, and then add tags and comments. Share with your Blogger™ followers, or post to Facebook® or YouTube™ – and many more social networks.

AutoShare
Connect your Samsung Smart Camera to your Smartphone and activate AutoShare – and the pictures you take automatically get sent to your Smartphone.

MobileLink
Permits the sharing of digital photographs and videos with select Android Phones. Just capture the photo using the Smart Cameras’ superior optics and then send images directly from your Samsung Smart Camera to any Android 2.2 or higher devices with the Samsung MobileLink App.

AllShare™ Play
Samsung AllShare™ Play lets you and your family seamlessly share your content across your DLNA®-connected Samsung devices, without the need for a network, cables or a connecting device.

Cloud Service (MS SkyDrive) Cloud-based backup means you’ll never be at risk of losing your shots, even if your camera is lost or stolen. If you’re in Wi-Fi range, your Smart Camera can copy images to a Microsoft SkyDrive account, a feature that also lets you delete shots from your camera’s memory card to free up room for more pictures. Don’t remember what you shot? You can view pictures stored on the cloud services directly on your phone or tablet, or download a copy to your PC.

Remote Viewfinder
Control your camera – even from 30 feet away – by using your Smartphone as the Viewfinder. Available for select Smartphones, the Remote Viewfinder App lets you preview images, adjust the camera settings, zoom in and out, frame the scene, and tag the shot with the location – all from your phone, wirelessly. Take the perfect group shot every time, even when you’re in it.

PC Auto Backup
Save images to your computer in a snap. You can wirelessly transfer photos and movies to your PC – even if the computer is turned off. With one simple setting, the camera can turn on any PC with Wake-on LAN functionality. When your images are saved, the camera can shut down the computer to save energy as well as your memories.

Cloud Service (MS SkyDrive)
Cloud-based backup means you’ll never be at risk of losing your shots, even if your camera is lost or stolen. If you’re in Wi-Fi range, your Smart Camera can copy images to a Microsoft SkyDrive account, a feature that also lets you delete shots from your camera’s memory card to free up room for more pictures. Don’t remember what you shot? You can view pictures stored on the cloud services directly on your phone or tablet, or download a copy to your PC.

3" Hybrid Touch Display
The Hybrid Touch Display offers two options: use the 5-way button to quickly move the cursor up, down, left and right to intuitively navigate the menu and make selections. Alternately, when you want to enter text – such as an email address – simply input the characters on the touch screen. Navigating controls and sharing images couldn’t be easier.

14.2MP CMOS Sensor
Capture properly exposed images in low-light situations with the CMOS sensor, which needs less light than conventional sensors. Use the Low light Shot to automatically select the best setting merging three continuous shots into one clear photo.

Full HD Video Capture 1920x1080
Full HD video with life-like color and extraordinarily sharp details. Shoot longer too – the camera’s H.264 format allows longer recording than a camera with MJPEG video does. When you’re done, you can watch your brilliant HD footage large as life on your HDTV.

Best Face
Missed it! With the Best Face feature that won’t happen again. Use it to travel back in time after you’ve taken a picture to replace faces with the perfect moment. Use it to open eyes, replace a smile, or find that perfect expression. With the combination of lightning fast burst shots and facial recognition, you can simply tap a face that’s looking the other way, and tap again to replace it with expressions taken moments before the actual shot.

Motion Photo
Motion Photo freezes the action around a moving subject to create a fun scene. Capture a friend dancing – then make everyone around him still as a statue. Simply shoot the footage, and then rub the area on the display where you want to keep the movement. The photo around it will freeze – it’s that easy.

Smart Mode
Stop being jealous of the pros with their big cameras, and start taking great shots. A quick tap of Smart Mode and you’re set with various special modes. Capture perfect trails of light at night on a busy intersection full of red taillights or instantly capture a high-speed scene with Action Freeze.

2D Panorama
Capture the sweeping beauty of a natural landscape or the grandeur of a vast skyline. The WB800F panoramic capabilities let you catch every detail on the horizon with the push of a button.

    We were looking for a camera that was a step up from our old point and shoots. I did a LOT of research into compact systems and mid range point and shoots. We didn't feel that we would use all the features of the compact systems so we settled on the upper end P&S. It came down to a few features such as optical zoom, CMOS sensor, HD video, and a late entry of Wi-Fi (we are going to a theme park and my wife wants to publish to Facebook from the park). I had settled on a couple models, but wasn't extremely confident that I was getting what I wanted. Then I stumbled upon the WB250 just as it was coming out and decided that this was the right fit. So far I am very pleased with the quality of the camera, the pictures, and the video. The Wi-Fi was very easy to set up and transfers photos to your cell phone or LAN quickly and easily. The only reason I downgraded one star is that the flash does not pop up automatically when taking pictures in low light. You have to manually open it or it will take a picture without it. It's not deal breaker, but is a minor annoyance. No other cameras out there with these features even comes close to the price and quality of this camera. I would highly recommend the WB250.

    I purchased this camera to replace a stolen camera right before my trip to Europe. I liked the features it offered, so I went for it. The camera has a very poor reaction time. I was on a tour bus and missed several good photo opportunities because the camera wouldn't focus quick enough, and several times it wouldn't snap the picture when I pushed down the button. It was very frustrating. Another thing is the battery life is absolutely atrocious! I would be on a full day tour, but the battery was dead by noon. I ended up taking pictures with my iPhone (better quality too). I wish I could return it, but the company I bought it from has a 15-day return policy... My trip was for 11 days. Needless to say from the time I purchased it to the time I returned, it was well over 15 days. I would definitely not recommend this product to a friend. Which is sad because I love Samsung products.

          Comments about Samsung 14.2MP SMART Cobalt Black Digital Camera:

          I purchased this camera 6 months ago and have not had any issues with it. Other than, say, getting acquainted with all of its features. I find the remote viewfinder app to be very useful with my S3 phone and easy to use. While searching the features/functions of picture and video, one can easily manipulate the "auto" selection of the dial menu to start taking great pictures. I am not a pro photographer by any means, but I do have plenty of years behind me in taking pics with good and bad digital cameras. For Me, this WB250F by Samsung brings together the ease of use of a beginner point and shoot with the clarity and detail of most premium DSLR cameras. Better than average battery life, 1080p videos, great picture quality, tiny but accessible buttons, and a difficult to get clean lcd screen, are the obvious things to me.

              Love this new camera! Size is perfect to carry in my purse. Takes better pictures than the camera I had with a zoom lense that was so much bigger. I love taking pictures of the animals that come through our yard and this camera is fast with the zoom lense, get great photos of them too.

                              We bought this camera to use on vacations when carrying our dslr with multiple lenses just doesn't make sense. We looking for a waterproof originally, but went with this since the quality of the images seemed better, more features and zoom. Fits easily in a pocket or on your wrist. Handled many of the rides with ease. Pictures are great. No complaints at all. Battery life is excellent as well.

                                I really like that it has great optical magnification and wide angle. However, with such a long range of magnification to go through, it can be slow to capture anything in a hurry. It works best for posed portraits or scenery. I also thought that I would not mind manually popping up the flash, but I find that to be a nuisance. I find that these drawbacks combined with the size makes me tend to skip using it. I would prefer a more compact, faster point and shoot camera to keep handy.
