The Samsung WB150F Smart WiFi Compact Digital Camera is a revolutionary piece of imaging equipment. Combining intelligent technology with incredible mechanics, this Smart camera covers all angles as well as creating a whole new perspective on photography.

Instant sharing the Smart way

The Samsung WB150F Smart Camera packs an almighty punch with a Schneider-KREUZNACH lens and an 18x Optical Zoom for producing excellent photographs. This great Samsung compact camera houses a 14.2 MP CCD sensor and offers 18x optical zoom and a 24 mm wide-angle lens for superb shots close to or at a distance from subjects.

Able to handle even dramatically sweeping panoramas, the WB-150F lets you shoot all kinds of spectacular scenery. Shoot marvellously defined, vivid portraits or intricate details from a distance.

Requiring less light than ordinary sensors, Low Light Shot lets you take well-exposed shots whether you're at a sunset party, dimly-lit club or eating by candlelight. The feature automatically chooses the best setting, merging three continuous shots into one perfectly exposed picture.

HD video

The Samsung W-B150F Smart Camera is also capable of shooting HD Ready 1280 x 720p videos at 30 fps. Enjoy realistic colour and astoundingly sharp detail as you shoot longer videos using the H.264 format, and then watch your HD footage large as life on your HDTV.

Smart camera

This Samsung Smart camera offers a great WiFi facility, its intelligent internet features giving you the ability to share with the world in an instant as you upload your photos and videos to social network sites directly.

You can also use Samsung's online Cloud service to wirelessly store your captured moments. With Samsung MobileLink you can send your camera content to other devices such as your Smartphone or tablet.

If that is not enough, wirelessly share your photos and movies from your Smart camera to your Smart TV for everyone to enjoy.

Easy image taking

Smart Auto 2.0 is a feature that automatically selects from 16 picture modes and 4 movie modes to deliver the best outcome.

On top of this, why not enhance the creative fun with Smart Filter 3.0, using many filter effects such as Cartoon, Cross filter, and Water paint? This can all be managed on the magnificent 3.0" TFT LCD screen, conveying improved contrast and colour.

Versatile photography

Switch to Full Manual Control to change your Samsung WB150F to the perfect setting for the scenario.

Aperture Priority lets you view the aperture up to 8 steps while the camera selects the shutter speed, or vice versa. With the Manual Mode you can stay in control of both.

The clever and effective Panoramic Views mode allows for wider image capturing, as the WB150F effortlessly shoots panoramic images, so you can take in the whole landscape.

The Samsung WB150F Smart Compact Digital Camera is an impressive camera, with high quality features which promise to smarten any photographer's results.

No, the amazon one is not wifi. This is an exclusive currys pc world one. Tried it yesterday and was really quick to upload to a cloud service so suspect it will be the same to email ( and Currys wifi was pretty slow).

Really Great Find - Just ordered one.. Thanks

Can you print directly to a wifi printer from this?

Average camera.

Canon SX220/SX230 is far better and similar money.

Youtube videos suggest it isn't very good.

Seems to be a mix of good and bad reviews but the reviews were all done when this camera was £199... Surely at £99 it's forgivable on some of its faults.... Linking to a Samsung phone for self portrait shots on holidays is genius!

Will this come with a case and memory card

Awsome camera, picked one up last year for girlfriend.
One of my favourite features is the iphone/android app which allows you to browse photos and videos stored on camera and transfer them via wifi.

Edit - It was actually the ST200F i purchased, but the above camera works with same app.

Was going to get this for my niece. Pleased to be paying £20 less than intended. Now the card and case will be included too

Just picked mine up. No card or case I can confirm

There is a bundle that includes a case and 2x 16gb memory cards, totals £133. Also comes in black. Just reserved mine for collection - just in time for Spain next week! Thanks OP. Hot

Edit: Don't forget quidco!

Cheers OP. Wife's birthday sorted!

Only buy this if you don't care about image quality and poor color reproduction.
If image quality is important, go for the Canon deal which is also posted on HUKD for the same price.

Agree with MaximusRo.

Also, this camera was available for £92.99 approximately a few months back and I didn't bother then.

Canon all the way (and no, I'm not a fanboy, just well read on this topic).

Really dont understand some of the negative remarks. I bought one for my son and its a very good camera, gives good pictures. "(Poor) image quality and poor color reproduction" ??? Not in my opinion. Pictures are sharp with good colour balance.

Maybe the NON-Wifi for 95 (seen that) NOT the Wifi. Never got that low.
If you and Minimus want to miss out, thats YOUR look out.

Dude, missing out is defined by not getting something you want...

I don't want this...

I held it and had a long play with it at Currys yesterday... and as well as not liking the feel of it, not really seeing the wow factor and ultimately reading reviews of this... made me come to the informed conclusion that there are far better cameras out there for a similar price.

Canon SX220 is better, simple. It can be bought within £20 of this camera.

There's also the IXUS range, with decent zoom, build quality and in the £100 mark.

Panasonic TZ25 is under £140, which is better than this.

Overall for low light shooting, this is not a particularly good camera.

Take away the Wi Fi and long zoom (which isn't amazing) and it is just an average point and shoot.

Just look at the reviews online... they speak for themselves...

Yes, £99 is a good price and on a spec sheet it looks hot, but it is just so so in the real world...

Got one today thanks

I don't think you can just 'take away' the wi-fi and zoom - they are major aspects of the camera for the money. A Ferarri would be no good if you took the engine away - it is meaningless to say "if you ignore the major pluses it's not that good" - nothing is if you do that. Ordered, thanks OP

The zoom is good, but still not perfect, plus many cameras in this price bracket have more effective zooms, so this one doesn't stand out...

Wi fi is the only advantage, although not something that would win most over the competition...

I got the wifi version for£92 a month ago from Amazon. So it did get that low.
Great camera, great zoom, lots of options, the wifi is a little clunky though but functions fine.
No case or mem card as mentioned earlier though.

Great camera, focus not so good in the dark but everything else is perfect!

I was VERY Tempted by this, it's a great price but I'm gonna wait for the Samsung galaxy camera to come down in price I think, been drooling over that for a while and if I picked this up I'd always look on in jelousy at the Samsung galaxy.

I've got a Sony a55 dslr and want to add a point and shoot and a super zoom like the canon sx50 to my kit

word of warning; if you have any problems with pcworld/currys then you'll have a fight on your hands to get anything done. they're quick to take your cash, but don't expect anything else.

Nice find scorpiok, just ordered it from local store, I can collect in 1 hour. Big heat added. At the end of the day its a great deal for under a ton. Thanks for posting it. Oh also if you collect Nectar points both PC World and Currys are giving double points, sign into Nectar account first then go from there.

I was going to buy this a couple of months ago,ended up getting an NX1000 which I hated. Sold it and bought a Samsung Galaxy camera which is brilliant. I ended up getting a great deal as it only cost me £258.

£258..... Where from! Would snap it up at that!?

I bought one of these from currys before Xmas for £109. It's a decent enough camera with enough umph to keep most pleased. It's certainly not worth £179 but at £100 it's worth a buy. The wifi facility hasn't wowed me either and if I bough again I'd probably consider the cheaper non wifi one.

I bought it from a good seller on ebay who deals with a lot of cameras. A good percentage of the sale was going to Marie Curie(I work for them too) Its a fab camera.
