This review is from: Samsung WB250F 14.2 Megapixel Compact Camera - Black
Pros: Good zoom Great Features Good quality photos Several interesting special shots Great shooting controls
Cons: HORRIBLE service and support from Samsung.
Other Thoughts: I use this camera for work and it does everything fine, only issue is Samsung doesn't know a single thing about their own product. They do not know what wireless the phone uses. Under the wireless specifications in the manual they will list things like "Email, backup, AutoShare" ect without giving you any useful information. Contacting them to get the actual wireless specifications causes them to recite the same useless information or they will try to forward you to laptop troubleshooting. So yes it may connect to your wireless network at home and your cellphone, but you aren't privileged to know which protocols are compatible ahead of time. Sadly this was the only downside, but for me it is a massive one as this level of support is the kind you only see with a no brand camera.
Outside of that the features are great. It has built in Cinemagraph functionality and other fun photo abilities.
Use with an android device opens up remote viewfinder functionality, letting me have my camera mounted on a pole and using the cellphone to see the current shot, take photos, zoom, and adjust quality and flash while the camera is 8 ft away. This is the main selling point for me since it makes my job a lot easier as the auto-focus will happen before the shot, something that can't be done if you set a timer and then move the camera into position. Sadly this is somewhat hurt by the poor support. They claim 2.3.3 or greater is required but you'll find that functionality is very broken among different phones and there is zero effort going into making the application work properly.
As a sidenote it is slightly worrying that the camera and phone connect to each other while Wireless and Bluetooth disabled on the phone, but I expect Samsung wouldn't care to shine a light on that.
