Compact megazoom with Wi-Fi
The WB850F is a good choice for smartphone snapshooters looking for a long zoom lens, faster performance, and better pictures and video. Samsung's Wi-Fi features are the best around on a point-and-shoot -- from sharing direct to Facebook, Picasa, YouTube, and Photobucket to turning your smartphone or tablet into a remote viewfinder.
The good: The Samsung WB850F is a feature-packed compact megazoom with a versatile lens, very good picture quality, and excellent Wi-Fi capabilities.
The bad: The WB850F's shooting performance is a bit mixed, its battery life is mediocre, and its interface, while very good, can take some time to learn.
The bottom line: For snapshooters looking to enter the world of connected cameras, the 21x zoom Samsung WB850F is a good place to start.
