  • While we don’t feel the Samsung WB650's functionality is quite as well implemented as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20's, the price differential may well tip the balance in its favour for hard hit consumers. ...

  • A compact camera that has every feature you can think of. It won’t rival large-sensor compacts for image quality, but photographs from the WB650 are sharp and full of detail....

  • It's simple: the Samsung WB650 is the best compact camera on the market right now that you can take on holiday. It's a powerful, solid performer, and coming in at a lower price than its close rival the Sony Cyber-shot HX5V, a must buy for anyone who do...

  • 15x zoom. Beautiful OLED screen with high contrast, and no motion blur. Micro-HDMI port.
  • Noisy images in anything other than ideal lighting conditions. Proprietary USB port.
