In need of a new digital camera I spent quite a few hours reading camera reviews. Searching for a digital camera that wouldn't break the bank! A camera with optical zoom that I could use on my antique picking adventures.

I take lots of photos for each of my antique auctions. Many of which are taken under less than great lighting conditions. So a camera that could take decent low light photographs without the necessity of a flash was quite important. Hopefully the chosen camera would have macro capability for those close up shots that are sometimes necessary!

I didn't place much concern on the flash abilities of the cameras I previewed online. Other than that I could easily disable the flash for most of my picture taking.

While recording videos on occasion is a great feature. It was not a major concern when making this camera purchase!

Having taken thousands of photos since buying the Samsung WB100 Digital Camera I am quite happy with it. Without a doubt the Samsung WB100 is the best camera that I have owned! However it is certainly not for everyone! The size is larger than what many people would want to carry around for an occasional photo. The camera uses 4 AA batteries which some users consider a negative. While the batteries do add camera weight. I appreciate the ease of charging and interchanging batteries. My only real complaint is that the Samsung WB100 Digital Camera has a noticeable time lag between photos. Certainly not a deal breaker considering the low cost and many other features that the camera does offer!
