Samsung's Smart Camera WB350F a decent complement to your smartphone's camera Video Transcript
Hi. I'm Josh Goldman with CNET, and this is a quick look at the Samsung WB350F, which is basically a smartphone camera with the 21x zoom lens and optical image stabilization. And by that, I mean that its photo and video quality isn't really any better than what you'd get from an above-average smartphone, but you also get the features of a reasonably priced point-and-shoot like that long zoom lens that I mentioned, and a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and a 3-inch touch screen LCD, as well as built in Wi-Fi and a nice pop of flash that could be angled up and bounced so you get more even light and you're not blasting your friends and family with flash. The camera is teeming with shooting options, too. There are semi-manual and manual shooting modes, but the bulk of them are automatic. If you like using effects and filters, you'll probably really like this camera. And if you like sharing your photos on-the-go, you'll probably like it, too. The camera's built-in Wi-Fi can be used for many things, including uploading direct to sharing sites or connecting directly to your smartphone or tablet. And if you have an Android device with NFC, you can just tap and connect. Once connected, you can shoot and have photos sent to your device or you can use the device's remote control. However, the remote feature is very limited with no real control over settings. But, he, you can use the camera's baby monitor, too. So, there's that. Anyway, like I said up top, if you're looking for an affordable compact 21x zoom to supplement your smartphone photography, this is available for that. I'm Josh Goldman, and that's a look at the Samsung WB350F.
