Samsung WB250F

  |   by DigitalCameraReview Staff

The Samsung WB250 is a lightweight point and shoot camera that is easily pocketable. The body of the camera is made of a plastic material that allows for the camera’s all-day-go-anywhere mentality. It weighs 6.8oz and measures 2.4 inches(h)x4.2 inches(w)x1.3 inches(d). The camera’s design is very similar to several other Samsung cameras from the rounded hand grip to the placement of the lens. The WB250F features a 14.2-megapixel 1/2.33-inch BSI (backside-illuminated) CMOS sensor with an 18x zoom lens. The f/3.2-5.8 lens is the equivalent of 24-432mm in 35mm format. The WB250F gives users the option to use Intelli-zoom, further expanding their focal range. The camera also features optical image stabilization. The Samsung WB250F has undergone a few alterations from the original design of its predecessor, the WB150F. Most markedly is the new touchscreen and the improved placement of the pop-up flash. The camera offers 9.5MB of internal memory. The WB250F also accepts SD, SCHC and SDXC cards. Images are recorded in JPG format. Movies are recorded as MP4 files. Based on the price point of $250 and its less than premium materials, the WB250F looks to be designed for the casual shooter. That being said, the casual shooter will most likely enjoy its fun features and ease of use.
