How to erase memory card?

8:23 pm - Friday, October 5, 2012

@ Sr , the easiest way to erase the card is using your computer . You also have an option to delete all the pictures . When you are at play (reviewing the pictures) , pres the MENU button , the top of the MENU shows option DELETE , pres OK and you’ll see two options Delete and Delete All . Hope that will be helpful

Bought it last month. I’m very pleased with this camera, it took high quality photos and the zoom is great. You just have to not stay with the smart shooting mode go to program or if you’re advance user go to manual and adjust the setting. and they say the wifi isn’t that helpful, but for me it is. i can upload random pics anytime anywhere there is a wifi without using my pc. i rate it as 8.9/10 for a point and shoot camera. cheers from philippines

USD $89.99 on sale at Fry’s Computers today.  If it was a decent pocket camera at $229 it is a world beater at the price I paid.

I am fairly pleased with this camera, the zoom is one of my best likes as long as I have a Tripod. Pretty darn good shots of the Moon and Jets as they scrape the sky. Shooting inside is not as good as I would like but they’ll do. Check out these Pics taken with the “Samsung wb150f camera”. And as for Wi-Fi. Some say that you have to use a Samsung Phone to use “Mobilelink and Remote Viewfinder” but that’s not true in my case. I have a ZTE WARP and those features work well.

@ Sr Just turn knob on top of Camera to “Settings” then go down to “General” and Select Format and everything on the Camera and Card will be erased. You should see a message saying “No Images”

What do you expect if you buy an internet tablet made by apple, the world is moving on. You can pick this camera up for sub £100 now a lot of features for the price.

Hi all,
Great website, I find the reviews always unbiased and very helpful. 1 dumb question someone may be able to answer - does this camera support AV out for real time monitoring (of what the camera is seeing)?? I realise the Samsung app provides this but hopeful it may feed out via good old fashioned wire also. Thanx for any tips :-)

4:54 am - Tuesday, February 26, 2013

#18 Rossco

I find these reviews great. I’m keen to try one of these, but really need to be certain the Samsung remote app will work ok. Remote control is a must have for what I have in mind & the GooglePlay comments are 50/50… hmmm. 
Great reviews - but - just 1 shot of the av-etc in & out ports would be real handy in each review.

I am having great difficulty importing pictures from camera to PC.  Have tried direct from camera using USB and by removing memory stick and importing from that into PC.  Message is “incorrect parameter”  help would be appreciated.

6:16 pm - Thursday, April 4, 2013

#20 Paula Denmon

Stupid question, I know.  I cannot import the pictures to my PC.  I have tried by wi-fi, usb, and taking memory card out and putting it in computer slot. Error message says improper parameter.  Help.  and thanks for tips so far.

Dear photographyblog, it does not have a bsi cmos sensor like u said on the first page, it has a regular ccd sensor unfortunately. And for the customers who would like to buy this camera for great photos/videos; don’ doesn’t have that kind of quality, trust me I have one. Videos come out with a weird color reproduction, very low bitrate (8-9 mbps 720p@30 with 41000 hz mono sound) which is again not good at all. Photos are also a little bit better than your, let’s say, average smartphone camera…I have a Samsung GS2 and believe me both videos and photos are better than my camera somehow.(17-20 mbps 1080p@30 videos with high quality stereo sound at 48000 hz).

#35 Toprak Okumuş

Oh and btw, ois is definetely not working properly, at the max zoom you really have to use a tripod, forget about handheld usage..For good daylight usage it’s ok when it comes to the pictures. For the video on the other hand, there’s no difference at all, it sucks. Wifi capabilities are very good on the other hand and that 18x optical zoom is definetely becomes handy for some situations but just like I said, a proper tripod has to be used for that.

I have had much pleasure with my samsung wb150f but after 18 months the wifi has failed, the camera freezes and won’t switch off, I have to remove the battery to turn it off. Everything else is fine.

Does anyone else have problems with the camera freezing after you take a photo? After this happens, I have to take the battery out and put it back in but the photo it froze on isn’t saved? Could this be a battery problem?

I have had the camera freezing consistently but I think I have fugured out why, I can reproduce everytime I let the zoom go into the digital zoom range. I have stopped this by using manual focus points which removes the digital zoom option. So far no freezing. I never use digital zoom so happy with this.
