Usually I find your reviews fair, although lacking in detail. This one is way off.
Samsung knows how to do Wifi right. It simply works. From sending emails, connecting to your phone/tablet or uploading to Dropbox/Picasa/Facebook. This camera gets it right. Try that on a Sony or Panasonic. Also the touchscreen is barely mentioned. It makes this camera far easier to use than the competition, especially the touch to focus feature. It should definitely earn a highly recommended award. Also you need to update the firmware to get the best performance. There have been two updates in the last 30 days.

You castigate the camera’s image quality yet score it 4?

It cannot be both!

Do you know if this camera can be connected to a polaroid pogo printer. When I connect the usb lead it just says it’s trying to connect to a computer

Samsung has made a tremendous leap in quality with this camera…I have actually owned Canon SX130, 260, 700….Lumix ZS9, 15….Nikon S9700…because I travel a lot and love a pocketable superzoom.

Here are my scores of current comparable ones I have tried by owning or by borrowing form relatives before buying the WB350:

WB350 4.o photo / 4.0 video / 4.0 Wifi
SX280 4.0 photo / 2.0 video / 3.0 Wifi
S9700 3.5 photo / 3.5 video / 3.0 WiFi
WX300 4.0 photo / 4.5 video / 4.0 Wifi ..but no manual control, no touch.

At current prices, there is no better deal. Not close—- Great zoom, pretty good in low light, flash is best or second of all these, touch screen focus works, and usably good WiFi.

Samsung needs a new marketing firm for their WB350 and NX series cameras. The current one has few friends in the industry.

PS: I also own Sony NEX 5N and Nikon P7700, so I’m not only a Samsung fan.

I bought this last fall because I had two previous Samsung cameras that I really liked.  Sadly, this one is a downgrade in quality.  I can’t understand why all the review sites don’t mention this.  My first two cameras had a Schneider Kreuznach lens with it.  My first Samsung was an 8 MP and my second was a 12 MP with a 15X zoom.  What great images these cameras both took.  You could zoom in and see great detail with the pixels and colors were very vibrant. 

However, this new camera uses a Samsung Lens and it is a huge drop in quality.  I am very disappointed with it.  The image quality even with higher MP and a further zoom is much poorer.  You zoom in the pic and it pixelizes quickly.  The detail and the colors are just not as vivid.  There are some cool features my old cameras never had like a cartoon setting and black and white type photos. 

But images are of much lower quality then my old Samsung cameras.  The Schneider Kreuznach lens produced much better quality than the Samsung lens.  I guess this point and click is ok for taking pictures of you family, your cat, and things like that.  But if you like taking pictures don’t get this camera. 

Samsung, please bring back the Schneider Kreuznach lens or at least consider doing so for your mid range and upper cameras.  I’m now buying a Sony with a Carl Zeiss lens.  This time I read the reviews.  For this camera, I didn’t due to the fact that I was so pleased with the quality of my last two cameras and assumed this one would be great too.  Sadly, it was not to be.
