The WB800F is a compact, well designed, sturdily built, and easy to use P&S digicam with a 21x zoom, but I'd like to offer a bit of advice to Samsung's product development folks - constantly crowding more pixels onto tiny P&S digicam sensors results in noticeably higher noise levels and the WB800F 16 megapixel sensor does produce marginally more noise than the SX280 HS's lower resolution 12 megapixel sensor. The differences are subtle, but they are visible. How about including a RAW mode and lowering the resolution to 12 megapixels on the WB800F's successor? The WB800F's strongest appeal will be to travel shooters, but this camera should also appeal to street shooters too. It's small, fast enough to capture the decisive moment, inconspicuous, and capable of generating reliably excellent digital images.
Samsung cameras often provide better performance than their competition and that's the case with the WB800F. After carrying this nifty little digital camera with me just about everywhere I've gone for the last couple of weeks I have decided that if I were going on a trip, I could take only one camera, and my choices were limited to either the Canon SX280 HS (the top selling travel zoom in the USA) or the Samsung WB800F, I would choose the WB800F for its neutral color palette and better-than-average image quality.
