Samsung WB800F or WB250F

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking for something with wifi that worked well with my Samsung android phone and priced under 200. Was considering picking one of these up either this month or in February as I heard they cut the prices then. I know it isn't the best but for the price with the features listed they both seem decent to me. WB250F comes in at 130 and the WB800F comes in 190. It seems to me that the 800F has a lot of improvements over the 250F that might help justify the extra cost.

Let me know your thoughts. I'm very new to this.

With so many cameras on the market. It is hard to really know what one is better or the exact differences. It would sure help if you would post a link to each camera so that it will save us a lot of time of looking up the cameras etc.

Unless you can find someone who has at least one of the cameras, i don't know that you can get a proper answer because all that we can do is look at specs. But that is a place to start.

Thank you for the response. I'd post the specs to each here but it would get a little messy with the format.

http://snapsort.com/compare/Samsung-WB250F-vs-Samsung-WB800F

The specs to both can be found there. I brought the WB250F today. Not sure if I plan to keep it or not. I turned off the AF and a few other features. Overall I'm finding the most joy from manual. Anything above 800 iso gets noise. I've also been playing around with the different shutter speeds and sizes. I'm just trying to get use to the camera and how to get the screen as clear as possible in different situations. I've heard lots of people tell me about proper lighting when it comes to picture and well I do understand that I brought this camera for the purpose of taking more pictures while out and about. In that situation I rarely get to pick what kind of lighting I'm going to be in but I believe with a little practice I can get a lot of use out of this camera.

Overall, the wb250f is way better than any cellphone I've ever used. If the wb800f is worth the extra 70 bucks I might opt for that. If not, I'll keep using this for a year or two and if I manage to use it for that long my next camera will be a high end one. I haven't used a camera for years so I wanted to make sure I wasn't wasting a lot of money on something I'd hardly ever use.

Also, a question that you guys might be able to answer if it this is a universal thing and I'm not sure it if it is. I've noticed biggest factors in ruining my picture is my finger. To counter this I've tried turning on the counter but it sends out a rapid blinking orange light that is blinded people. It is probably a setting somewhere I might be able to use to fix this. I'm also curious on what that orange light does as it isn't my flash.
