Samsung WB700 Reviews

Photographyblog reviews the Samsung WB700 and writes;
“We love the image quality from the WB700. Colours are punchy and bright while the focusing is sharp as well as fast. Metering works well and while the camera has a limited dynamic range, it’s to be expected and is better than some we’ve seen. “
Rating: ★★★★½

CNET reviews the Samsung WB700 and writes;
“Our images were sharp, colours were bright, and apart from some clipping on extreme highlights, our pictures were detailed and well-balanced. The movie mode is one of the best we’ve come across, with carefully suppressed background noise and well-retained aural detail. The Samsung WB700 is a great choice for the more ambitious point-and-shoot photographer.”

Techradar reviews the Samsung WB700 and writes;
“We love the little extras that the WB700 has such as the Schneider lens, manual controls and excellent build throughout – even on the battery door. Pictures are great with lovely colours and sharp focusing.”

Ephotozine reviews the Samsung WB700 and writes;
“With its full manual controls and large amount of optical zoom the WB700 is an ideal camera for those who are wanting a more advanced camera than a simple compact. Image quality is OK, colour reproduction is good and so is noise performance.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-lint reviews the Samsung WB700 and writes;
“Surprisingly for a budget model with an expansive focal range, the Samsung WB700 delivers good edge-to-edge sharpness, for the most part avoiding softening toward the corners even at maximum 24mm equivalent wide angle setting.”

Good little camera
“Image quality and features for a camera of this size and price are almost amazing. The wide angle at minimal zoom on this Samsung would cost me a fortune on my DSLR because I would have to buy a new lens. The telephoto is similarly impressive..” – By Canuck_Doc
