21 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Samsung compact camera digital cameras have good ratings as do all cameras built by Samsung.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on similar spec cameras that were launched around the same time as it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

We compared all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L120 ($299.50), the Casio Exilim EX-H50, and the GE G3WP is also worth considering.

SD Memory Card

This camera supports an SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on cameras of this spec and age. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative digital cameras that support an SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung WB200F ($204.97).

If the memory card type of this camera is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Nikon Coolpix L120 ($299.50) (SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Olympus VG-180 (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

The optical zooms of compact camera digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as the WB100 range from 2x to 50x, and the average optical zoom is 9.3x. With an optical zoom of 26 times zoom factor, the Samsung WB100 has a very big optical zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to the WB100.

If you want a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might also want to look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ60 (30x and higher rated), the Nikon Coolpix L820 ($284.00) (30x and higher rated), or the Sony DSC-HX60 ($375.65) (30x and higher rated).

The Samsung WB100 supports video recording. Most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the WB100 also support video recording.

We compared all the other digital cameras which support video recording to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L120 ($299.50), the Samsung MV900F ($165.99), and the Sony DSC-W510 ($168.49) is also worth considering.

With a digital zoom of 5 times zoom factor, the Samsung WB100 has one of the bigger digital zooms amongst compact camera digital cameras of this age. Across all the digital cameras of this age and spec the digital zooms range from 1x to 810x.

We compared this camera to all the other 5x digital zoom digital cameras and we think the DV150 ($258.12), the PL70, and the ST100 all from Samsung which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might also want to look at the C1233 (5.7x and higher rated), the A1455 (5.7x and higher rated), or the J1250 (5.7x and higher rated) all from GE.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 16.2MP cameras currently available including the DV150 ($258.12), or the WB850F both from Samsung or the Sony DSC-WX10 which has better reviews.

If this compact camera digital camera megapixel count is too low for you then you might also want to look at the MV900F ($165.99) (16.3MP), the Galaxy EK-GC100 (16.3MP), or the WB800F (16.3MP) all from Samsung which also has a higher rating.
