    The good:- wi-fi connectivity, fantastic real zoom x 18 (stunning), picture quality is as good as cameras twice the size, nice screen, does most things you’d want on the Auto setting.
    I seem to be the only person who likes the pop-up flash…it may look flimsy but if you click it back into its slot afterwards, no problem; also seeing it up means you know it’s on.
    Instructions are hopeless – it costs nothing to write a simple guide. I have many Samsung products but with all of them their customer service and support is awful, essentially they supply no help at all. If they sorted their customer interface they’d be world beaters. Anyone who’s tried to get help with their dreadfully-designed Kies connectivity for phone data will know what I mean, it just does not work properly…so, prod around all the buttons of this camera and work it out for yourself, or ask a tech-savvy mate.
    For what it does this camera is a bit chunky but the price I paid was excellent and it is technically sound. Despite my misgivings I still like it. Steve Riches, Northampton, UK.

    Bought the camera for a number of reasons (in order of importance)

    i) Ability to charge from USB without having to pop out the battery every time it goes flat. Essential when travelling. Most digital cameras require you to have an AC charger with you – this makes sense for a professional camera, but NOT for a pocket digi camera which i take travelling with me.
    ii) Good quality high def pictures & videos
    iii) Ability to zoom while taking videos
    iv) Good close up shots (both video & still)
    v) Pocket sized. I like to have a camera with me at all times ready to use
    vi) Good zoom with a decent lens
    vii) Good standby battery life (many cameras eat their battery in weeks of standby without any use – how stupid is that?)
    viii) Ease of use. Got to be simple to use. I wanted a camera that simply works without having to press lots of buttons.

    This camera has fulfilled all my expectations. I’m so very happy with it.
    Brilliant hi def videos, fantastic zoom, brilliant stills, easy to use, good battery life, charges via USB.

    I’ve never owned a Samsung camera before, and it has surpassed all my expectations. If you’re looking for an easy to use camera that takes excellent pictures and videos then this is the camera for you.

    I’m sure professional photographers will find flaws in this camera, but then I’m not a professional photographer!….. Just looking for something that I can carry around with me all the time that is ready to take a snap within seconds of getting it out. Something reliable, quick & easy to operate.

    LOVE IT!!!!

    I took delivery of this camera a couple of days before going to Italy (Lake Garda) on holiday 10 days ago. I took several hundred photos and several minutes of video with it. I also took an older Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS10 and left the Panasonic Lumix FZ38 bridge at home. This later camera has a viewfinder but is much larger to lug around.

    The Samsung WB250F took some great pictures. The feature I liked best and used quite a bit was the panorama feature. Whereas with both the Panasonics you have to take 3 pictures matching the start/ends of each picture up to get a panoramic one out with the Samsung you just choose the panorama option and then move the camera carefully across the vista you want to shoot. There is a limit on the width of shot you can shoot which shows on the screen as a black bar that fills out. The faster you move the camera the faster the bar fills out. The playback for a full bar is 45 secs. The results are automatic and simple great. Nothing else to do and no skill required. See below comment but in very bright sunlight it’s quite difficult to see the bar on the screen.

    The problem I had in Italy with this camera (and with the FS10) was that in the bright sunlight I could just not see what I was shooting-hardly at all. This was where the viewfinder on the FZ38 would have been useful. My wife tried to take some pics with the Samsung and complained she couldn’t see anything at all on the screen.

    When I came home I took all three cameras out into the garden on a sunny day and could get an image on each of the screens-the images did seem better than when we were in Italy which makes me wonder whether the sun being somewhat higher in the sky in Italy somehow affects the screen.

    The reason I bought another camera when I already have 2 good ones is that technology always moves on and whereas the smaller Panasonic only has a 5 times optical lens the Samsung at 18 times is exactly the same as the much bulkier FZ38 so it’s much easier to carry around in your pocket or bag and you get the same or better functionality.

    One other thing the Samsung does that neither of the others do is that whilst shooting video you can simultaneously take photos (and you can also use the zoom feature).

    At £150 this is excellent value for money.

    A word of warning. Some of the suppliers ship from China so if you want the camera very quickly be careful where you order it from.

    Other than this one gripe which could apply to all cameras with this sort of screen, this is a great camera. I put a fast 16GB San Disk Extreme SD card in which transfers data at 45MB/s which worked extremely well.
