Samsung WB650 Digital Camera Black - Expert Reviews
Samsung has pretty much conquered the world of Televisions, Smartphones, Refrigerators, and what not, but in the camera field, it is a relatively new company, and hence, has to produce something out of the ordinary to secure its grasp on the camera market. Has the company done it with Samsung WB650 ? Let us find out. Now, overall, Samsung WB650 is a 12megapixel compact device, which boasts of a decent 15x zoom which at a 35mm equivalent, provides a focal length of 24mm to 360mm with a great optically stabilized lens and, a huge 3-inch AMOLED LCD screen. This travel zoom Samsung WB650 also offers all its users the in-built GPS facility which lately, has proved to be a huge boon in the field of photography for it automatically geo-tags your images. There is the 720p HD video recording alongside a HDMI port, which can be used for quite some quick and easy playback modes on a High Definition TV set. There is an entire array of AF modes namely, Auto, Face Detection, Smile Shot, Blink Detection, Self Portrait, and Beauty Shot, and they promise the user that the interface is too friendly even for a beginner to use. Alongside these, is the availability of the advanced A/S/M shooting modes that have been given for some highly experienced users. Our Samsung WB650 is available in Black and adds on two significant features right to its little brother, the predecessor Samsung WB600. These are a much better AMOLED screen and the earlier mentioned GPS, without actually making a significant increase in price.
Apart from that, it is identical to WB600 in all other aspects, and hence, suffers from being quite of a bulky design and produces unwanted even at a low ISO level, but still we will consider it as a good option for a travel zoom device. This built in GPS actually adds a whole new dimension right into the photos you click, and can easily be displayed on websites like Google earth or even on the camera itself. But then, for making that possible you have to go through an entire procedure of downloading the maps from Samsung’s own website and copying them into the correct folder in the memory card (too much work for me personally). Although once you turn the GPS on all the time, the battery drains like anything, but still GPS seems to be worth it. The AMOLED screen, we feel, is also worth the slight increase in prices that you have to pay in order to acquire it over Samsung WB600, with actually a higher resolution and better visibility in sunlight at the intense wide angles. The 15x zoom is decent, especially for a compact device, and we are glad that it surpasses every device in the Panasonic TZ series of travel zoom cameras when it comes to the lens, but obviously, because of that the camera is now thicker and heavier. You can still easily fit in Samsung WB650 in the pocket of your trouser, but it still is a tight squeeze.
Design and Build Quality
Samsung WB650 is very identical to its predecessor in terms of dimensions, the only difference being as mentioned earlier, a GPS tracking system and an AMOLED screen. The first impressions of this device are that of a really bold and chunky sort of a design, which gives the depth of 28mm and weighs a good 220grams. The exact dimensions of the camera are 106.6mm x 60.5mm x 28mm respectively. This device is constructed out of a robust plastic and is really small and light enough to be carried inside the pocket of a trouser or in a small camera bag. Samsung WB 650 does not really have a hand grip, and there is only a slight outward curve in the camera body which provides any kind of purchase and makes it a little difficult to hold steady.
Focus and Face Detection
After zooming onto your desired composition, half way through pressing the shutter button, you have the camera swiftly focus and adjust exposure. During this, the AF point is highlighted in Green with a viable ‘beep’ sound as a confirmation for you to take a picture. The shutter lag is almost negligible, around 2seconds, to let your picture saved. The auto focus system is extremely well with fast response in focusing. The focus works feasibly well in dim lights too, otherwise in the camera there is an AF assist lamp with a range of three meters to help. The camera is capable of focusing and recognizing faces under the Smart Face Recognition feature and technology wherein, Samsung WB650 automatically adjusts the cam’s exposure and its focus on faces up to 20! It is also possible in the camera to identify the most photographed faces in your photographs and focus on them. The feature additionally, lets you quick search for specified people, imagine what a time saver this is!
Lens and Image Stabilization
Talking about the lens, it is versatile with 24-360mm as mentioned earlier, so it only makes sense if you avoid the slight discomfort. The Aperture and Shutter priority settings bridge the gap between the multitude of hand-holding technologies and the full manual option. As you would have expected, the picture quality of this device is really identical to Samsung WB600. Ideal shooting conditions of the device really impresses the strange but color rich imagery of the device, the condition being that, this can lure towards you looking somehow unrealistic on occasions. In low light conditions the things aren’t quite as easy, for the noise appears on ISO 200 and actually becomes worse as you move right up the range, and hence, the device is ideally suited for sunny sort of days.
Screen and Menus
Turn towards the back of Samsung WB650 and you find a bright, prominent three inch AMOLED screen, sharing its space with a vertical strip of control scattered on the right side of it. Sharpness and acuteness are both attributes to this screen; to the least they are much better than the traditional LCD monitor on the previous WB600. Catering a generous 920,000 k pixel resolution and a 10000: 1 contrast ration, the screen is definitely your friend as you preview and compose your photographs and videos. It is relatively easier to view when you are shooting out doors in open light but that doesn’t entirely eliminate it from being a bit difficult to view as direct sunlight or extreme angles are experimented with. It can however take up to a 180 angle degree viewing angle. Comparatively, Samsung WB650’s screen is better than majority of the market found camera monitors and is worth spending your premium on. Right below the dedicated movie recording button a menu button lies, after clicking it, you are offered a range of selectable options. The menu system is sensibly laid out, very simple in other words. You can change between the four points option Display mode to show a nine zone compositional grid, showing all shooting information or merely the basics i.e simple information like the number of shots remaining, self-timer modes, macro and focus modes etc.
Right at the bottom of the camera besides the centrally located metal tripod mount, you can see a sliding cover, behind which lies the shared compartment of your batteries and the memory card. The camera is compatible with SD/ SDHC/ SDXC cards, together with 128MB of internal memory. As for the battery, the camera uses rechargeable batteries, a delight for the travelers and out goers. Another plus for them comes with how long the camera lasts, approximately about 275 shots on a full charge. This is enough but can be reduced to 200 shots if one leaves their GPS constantly turned on, so beware.
The saddest part of this camera, although it has a HD suffix, is that Samsung WB650 offers 1280 x 720p basic HD mode rather than Full HD 1080p mode (1920 x 1280) in the very economical and reasonable H.264 format, and it can be paused mid record and the recording can then be restarted. And the user can therefore perform some rudimentary tasks of editing while the shooting has been on zoom. One very exciting feature of this device is that the zoom is accessible while shooting movies, and hence, this becomes one of the main and key selling points of the camera. It really would have suffered a lot if it did not.
Sensor is a sort of device, which is basically the heart of a camera, it is a transducer that converts optical images into electronic signals and then, sends them right into the circuitry for later use. Well, in Samsung WB650, there is the basic 12megapixel 1/2.3 inch CCD type sensor, which is modest to say at the best.
