Photo

Photo:
"The panorama mode (one thing that was consistently awesome on my previous Samsung) is just flat-out awful - take the fuzziness and multiply it by about 50.I've seen other reviews on here suggesting to use some software to touch up the blurriness of the photos - if you have to do that, it's a terrible camera."
_
"My husband has a Kodak and it takes beautiful outside pictures but HORRIBLE inside photos - no matter what he does with the settings."
_
"So I tried to upload the photos through the WIFI option and haven't been able to get that to work either."
_
"I actually returned the camera just before the 30 day mark since none of the wifi features worked and the low light photos were not good."
_
"I bought this despite one person's claims that her iphone photos were just as good."
_
"It's especially nice for macro photos of flowers and insects."
_
"Downloading photos to the computer is really easy with the cord."
_
"Takes very nice quality photos."
_
"The bottom line: If you're happy with the photos from your smartphone, but wish you had an actual camera with a long zoom lens and wireless sharing and backup, check out the Samsung WB150F."
