3.5-inch Color LCD Touchscreen
See everything you're recording with the 3.5-inch color LCD touch panel display, which uses Samsung's latest display technologies to give you a crisp, clear picture with natural color and dynamic detail. This beautiful display gives you comfort and confidence in any external light conditions. The touch panel feature makes menu navigation a breeze, so you'll quickly have the settings you want for every shot.

Optical Image Stabilization

Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) is indispensable when taking low-light shots or when your hand is unsteady. By making adjustments to counteract hand-shake, the camera gives you sharp, focused results even in tough conditions.

HD Movie Recording

The WB210 does more than just take single shots; it can also take beautiful HD videos. It allows you to capture video at 1280 x 720p resolution at 30 frames per second right from the palm of your hand. The camera takes video in the MP4 format (Video: MPEG4.AVC/H.264), Audio: AAC).

Smart Auto 2.0 Creates the Perfect Shot
The Smart Auto 2.0 feature takes the guesswork out of taking great shots. By analyzing key composition elements, the camera makes a decision on what photo mode and optimal settings should be used for the shot. The camera chooses from 17 different photo and 4 different movie modes.

Samsung ES80 12.2 Megapixel Compact Digital Camera (Black) Lifestyle ShotFace/smile/blink-detection feature automatically takes a picture when subjects laugh or smile.

Face/Smile/Blink Detection
Say goodbye to shots with closed eyes. The WB210 automatically detects if any eyes are closed and won't let you take a shot if they are. The camera can also automatically shoot when subjects smile or laugh, and it adjusts the lighting on up to nine different faces at once, so you'll always take the shot at the perfect moment.

Built-In Special Effects
Tap into your artistic side with the built-in Smart Filter 2.0 feature. Smart Filter gives you a wide range of color and lens effects to give your shots some added artistic flare. These effects include the Miniature effect which shrinks your subjects; Vignetting, which fades the edges of your shots for a dramatic focus; and Fish-eye, which offers a fun, distorted "fish-eye" feel.

The Beauty Shot feature lets you instantly and automatically remove dark circles, facial blemishes and imperfections to create great looking portraits.

I am an avid photographer and reluctant global traveler (business). I have, for a number of years, been using a Canon Powershot SD800IS and recently purchased a Samsung WB210 to replace it. There is nothing wrong with the Canon...I just wanted a newer digital point-and-shoot. I have had the WB210 for over two months and have found it to be an excellent replacement.I have been also been considering adding a high end SLR but each time I get close to a purchase, I think about the convenience of my ... point-and-shoot, and am not sure I would get the extensive use a high price camera warrants.I am quick to upload pictures and videos so I have not been too concerned about the battery life as some reviewers. The camera provides for plenty of manual adjustments and I enjoy playing with its magic frames which allows unique framing of shots.I was most positively surprised by the shadow lighting when shooting subjects that are backlit. Oftentimes, I do not need a flash. This camera suits my needs and I would recommend it to others without hesitation. November 2012 add: The price has dropped considerably since my purchase making this an even better buy. More >

I was hesitant to purchase the Samsung WB210 because of the reviews. I bought the WB210 two weeks ago and I am very happy with the product. A couple of things that you need to be aware.a) Firmware Upgrade - Download the Software from the Samsung web site and copy it to the external hard disk of the camera (your camera needs to be attached to your computer). Once you disconnect the WB210 from your computer, you need to turn on your camera on and a message will appear on the screen - click on th ... e arrow and the install will be done after a couple of minutes (make sure your battery is fully charge).b) The WB210 supports HD 720 and HD 1080i - I have created nice DVD's in 1080i and they look great!c) The battery life is decent (60 minutes); it will be nice if Samsung makes a battery with a life of two (2) hours.

I hesitate to recommend this camera. In some aspect modes, when the camera takes pictures of outside scenes, if there is sunlight and shade, the parts of the picture with sunlight are literally almost pure white. Unfortunately, video is one of the aspect modes where the exposure does not work well. There is a firmware update available for this camera, but no one at Samsung knows how to have the install done. The firmware update might have fixed the problem.The one touch option is very cool, an ... d works well. You just touch the screen you want to focus on, the camera focuses on that spot and takes a picture. More >
