10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Video Recording

The Samsung WB2100 does not support video recording, although it is worth noting that most of the other cameras of this age and type also do not support video recording.

We compared all the other cameras which also support video recording to this camera and we think the FinePix SL260, or the FinePix S8650 both from Fujifilm or the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most cameras of this type and age do not support WiFi connectivity. The Samsung WB2100 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative cameras which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider include the FinePix S8400, or the FinePix S9400 both from Fujifilm or the Samsung NX30 ($557.28) which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

The Samsung WB2100 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other bridge cameras that are a comparable age to the WB2100 are also not 3D compatible.

Digital cameras which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the DSC-HX100V, or the DSC-HX200 both from Sony.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

The Samsung WB2100 is not waterproof. Most of the other bridge cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the WB2100 are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

Like most of the other bridge cameras that have been around for more than two years, the Samsung WB2100 does not have a GPS.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with a GPS and we think the DSC-HX100V, the DSC-HX200, or the DSC-HX400 ($449.99) all from Sony which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

The smallest digital zoom of bridge cameras that have been available for a similar time to the WB2100 is 2x and the biggest is 500x.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2x digital zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the FinePix HS30, the FinePix HS25, or the X-S1 all from Fujifilm.

If this Samsung digital camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to consider the PowerShot SX50 HS (4x and higher rated), or the PowerShot SX510 HS ($299.95) (4x and higher rated) both from Canon.
