While the WB350F compares nicely to most of its competition in terms of features and handling, the higher than average noise levels above ISO 400 might be a deal breaker for some potential purchasers.
The WB350F is a compact, well designed, sturdily built, and easy to use P&S digital camera with a 21x zoom and its strongest appeal will be to travel shooters, but this camera should also appeal to street shooters because it is compact, fast enough to capture the decisive moment, inconspicuous and non threatening to subjects, and capable of generating reliably excellent digital images.
The WB350F offers NFC (Near Field Communication) connectivity in addition to Wi-Fi connectivity. What is NFC? NFC allows users to create a link between a camera and a smartphone (or similar devices) to establish RF communication with the other like-minded devices by touching them together or bringing them into close proximity. The Samsung WB350F is fun to use and while it does have a couple of flaws, none of them are, in my opinion, deal breakers.
- Fast maximum aperture
- 21x zoom
- Very good image quality for the beginner photographer
- LCD is prone to glare
- No RAW mode
- Image noise increases exponentially at sensitivities higher than ISO 400 (indoor shots in low light conditions will appear grainier)
