8 Reasons Against

Quite Small Digital Zoom

When compared to other cameras of a similar age and type to the WB50F that we have assessed, the Samsung WB50F's digital zoom of only 2 times zoom factor is one of the smallest.

If this camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Nikon Coolpix S5300[plb_2272796_price] (4x), or the Olympus Stylus SH-60[plb_2273504_price] (4x) which is also higher rated.
