Samsung WB350F Review -- First Impressions

by Mike Tomkins
Preview posted: 01/07/2014

Want a pocket-friendly long-zoom camera? The Samsung WB350F could be one to check out, although as yet we have relatively little information about the camera.

Based around a 1/2.3-inch type, 16.3 megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS image sensor, the Samsung WB350F offers a sensitivity range of ISO 80 to 3200 equivalents.

The sensor sits behind a 21x optical zoom lens with a 23mm-equivalent wide angle, and a telephoto equivalent in the region of 483mm. Maximum aperture starts from f/2.8, and falls to f/5.9 by telephoto. On the plus side, optical image stabilization is included, helping to prevent blur from camera shake. Images and movies are framed and reviewed on a 3.0-inch, 460K-dot LCD monitor, which also serves as an interface device courtesy of a touch-panel overlay.

Shooting modes include Smart, Baby Monitor, and Dual Capture. The Smart mode offers a variety of scene types, including Beauty Face,Landscape, Action Freeze, Panorama, Waterfall, Silhouette, Sunset, Fireworks, Light Trace, Low Light Shot,Rich Tone, Continuous Shot, and Macro. Movie resolutions include Full HD (1,920 x 1,080; 1080p), HD (1,280 x 720 pixels; 720p), VGA (640 x 480), and QVGA (320 x 240). All are captured at 30 frames per second.

Images and movies are stored on MicroSD cards, including the higher-capacity MicroSDHC and MicroSDXC types. Connectivity includes Wi-Fi wireless networking with support for remote live view, and NFC for easy setup with Android devices. Power comes from an SLB-10A battery.

Body colors for the Samsung WB350F include white, black, brown, red and blue. Pricing and availability hadn't been disclosed at press time.
