Pros: Inexpensive, Realistic color, Lightweight
My goal was to find a lower prices digital camera that I could use while on vacation. I wanted to send photos taken on a day to friends and family and I needed to do this when traveling without my laptop. The WB250 does just that. When back at the hotel I can send, via email, the better photos of the day directly from the camera. This is a fantastic feature and one I will use during my annual visits to Asia. Thanks Samsung, your a leader in the industry.

# of SAMSUNG products I own:3-5
Pros: Inexpensive, great functionality, great apps
I was looking for an inexpensive compact camera with good resolution that would easily fit in my shirt pocket, had a relatively high optical zoom, and had WiFi for easy photo upload. When I saw an ad for the WB250F it seemed to be the answer to my search, so I bought it.
Much to my surprise, not only does it meet the criteria already mentioned, but it has some very useful functionality that I never even imagined. If you have an Android phone you can download a suite of apps. These apps include the ability to send photos between your camera and your phone. They also give you remote control of the camera from your phone, including a remote viewfinder!
Overall I have been very happy with this camera so far. The photos are of excellent quality and the 18X optical zoom is a great for taking pictures from a distance. The WiFi functionality, combined with the free apps, give this camera amazing functionality for the price.
The only negative that I have found so far is that it does not seem to store the WiFi password in memory, so you must re-enter it each time you want to use a password protected WiFi network; I hope that they fix this in the next software update.

# of SAMSUNG products I own:3-5
Pros: Durable
.The one thing I find is that I hold the camera with my fingers on both sides and ready to shoot with the right hand. However due to the fact I hold the camera in the same position with my left hand I inadvertently turn on the Wi-Fi mode quite oftern. Wish it were in a different spot or over a bit more on the top of the camera. I am still in the process of leaning and sometimes I do something that makes the camera freeze up and then the lens won't close. I just have to keep working with it to get the lens to go back to the original position. Don't know what I do to make that happen but it is a regular occurance for me.

Pros: Bright display, Lightweight, decent stabilization
Cons: abrupt zoom, wifi should be disabled from touch screen
This is a decent camera for a long zoom point and shoot. With the 18X zoom it does bring the subject close but the zoom gradually zooms in between say 0, no zoom, to about 8X then jumps to 15X to 18X with nothing in between. This is the optical zoom. The digital zoom is graduated properly. Also, and this is because of all the elements in the lense, any shots aimed at or towards the sun are distorted with purple hash marks. This is an ailment of ALL long lenses with numerous elements. The ASM settings, Aperature, Speed or Manual feature is nice and you can manipulate the shots quite well to get the effects, lighting and shadows you want. The wifi feature is a nuisance and because of the touch screen, comes on accidentally often. When it comes on it cost you a quick shot of something you wanted and I wish it could be disabled! The touch screen works very well but several of the features are so small to tap on you end up turning on or turning off something other than what you wanted.
Summary: for a point and shoot with 18X optical zoom it is decent for the money.
