The WB250F is a nice option for those casual photographers on a budget. With a retail price of about $250, this camera offers plenty of features — especially Wi-Fi. That being said, discerning point and shoot photographers will want to look for another option…possibly the Samsung EX2F, which received much praise in our recent review. Image quality is not the best feature of this camera. It is good, but not great.
The WB250F did received two thumbs up from my nine year old son who absolutely loved the motion photo effect along with some fun in-camera editing effects. At first, I questioned mentioning this in the review. However, I decided that this is a huge selling point for this camera. In a market where point and shoot cameras are a dime a dozen, having a feature that sets itself out amongst the crowd is extremely important. Admittedly, the market share of children buying cameras is extremely small, yet there is nothing better as a mom than finding something positive that peaks your child’s interest.
If you are comparing this camera to your smartphone, then the choice is a no-brainer. The WB250F has a much richer feature set then any smartphone out there. It’s a great option for those that want a bit more than their phone can offer. Also, Samsung has done a fantastic job creating a great Wi-Fi camera. However, if you are looking for a point and shoot camera that will offer great image quality with a solid body, then you might want to set your sights toward the Samsung EX2F, also equipped with Wi-Fi.
Overall, the camera has a lot of positive features and is priced fairly at $250.
