The Samsung WB650 is Sammy’s latest compact snapper, fresh off the factory line, with some seriously covetable kit stuffed in: not only does it up the optical zoom, but it throws in an OLED screen and GPS for geotagging too.
The 12.2 megapixel Samsung WB650 takes the 24mm wide angle lens of the company’s previously released WB550 and WB500 models, and ramps up the optical zoom to an incredible 15x. It also stuffs in 720p video recording at a smooth 30 fps and HDMI out put to lash it up to a TV, but our favourite features are the 3-inch OLED display for rich picture preview, like the WB1000, and GPS for automatic geotagging wherever you are on the globe.
Alongside the £299.99 Samsung WB650, the slightly lower specced Samsung WB600 debuts, with the same lens, zoom, image sensor and dimensions, but an LCD screen and no GPS for 50 notes less: both are out in March.
Samsung has also taken the time to slip out a few svelte point and shoots along with the Samsung WB650. The Samsung ST70 and ST60 dole out 14.2 and 12.2MP images respectively, with 720p video recording included for £179.99/149.99 when they ship next month. Finally, there’s the dirt cheap Samsung PL80, with a 12.2MP sensor, 5x optical zoom and standard def AVI video recording for just £129.99, due in March.
But it’s the feature stacked Samsung WB650 you’re here to see right? Check it out up close in our official photo gallery, right here, right now.
