Samsung HZ30W Camera Reviews Roundup
|BobAtkins: "As a small, light, inexpensive and versatile camera, I like the Samsung HZ30W. I can slip it into my pocket and carry it anywhere, it has a true wideangle 24mm coverage lens and if I need the reach I can zoom out all the way to 360mm for those elusive wildlife shots! Most of the time I leave it in Program mode and let the camera decide on ISO, shutter speed and aperture, but I can override any of those auto decision..." - Dec 30 2011 More »|
|DigiCamReview: "Image Quality: Great. Very good colour, with bright saturated colours (may be overly saturated for some, but this can be altered in camera). Detail is good, noise is low at the lower ISO settings, which the camera sticks to when left on AUTO ISO. Purple fringing is low, and barrel and pincushion distortion is also low with no obvious signs of vignetting - this is particularly commendable considering the 15x optical..." - May 05 2011 More »|
|TechRadar: "When it comes to shooting stills, the WB600 is well worth the money. We have our reservations about the lens' performance at its longer reaches, as corner softness is an issue, but for general long-lens photography this is a great little device for trips to the zoo or wildlife photographers who don't want to be weighed down by a DSLR.We liked: We're big fans of the WB600's manual mode. It's a great starter..." - Sep 16 2010 More »|
|ePhotoZine: "With an optical zoom of 15x there's usually a price to pay and in this case it's the wide open aperture coming in at f/3.2 at the wide angle end and f/5.8 at the telephoto end. Shooting towards bright light does produce some flare and against a white sky for high contrast shots there's some chromatic aberration but you really have to go for those extreme circumstances to get it. Given that there's such a long zoom,..." - Jul 21 2010 More »|

- Aug 04 2012 JUNK!!!, Richard
I have owned two of these cameras. The first one was purchased a little over a year ago and wouldn't work out of the box. It wouldn't zoom in or out and when it did it froze and stopped working . Nothing would correct the problem so I returned it for a replacement. When the replacement arrived it worked OK; seeing very little use until now. Same problem as before; zoom froze in the op...
- Jun 12 2012 Takes great pictures, but not at max zoom, W. Reagan
Excellent camera for the price. At standard zoom, the picture quality is top notch and crystal clear. When going to digital zoom and maxed out, quality of very grainy and sometimes not useable. Multitude of settings will keep camera fans happy, but the auto feature does and awesome job. Pictures are easily transferable but you will need a memory card with this, so plan a...
- Dec 24 2011 Worked okay for a year then problems, Nick "demon_f16"
Purchased this camera last year (Nov 2010) based upon the favorable reviews. Gave it to my wife for christmas and she has been using it regularly for the last year. It worked good for at least 9-10 months then started to develop minor issues. I used it this fall at my son's basketball game and I had a hard time taking action photos. I tried all the settings and nothing improved th...
