hello

im going on holiday soon and i am wanting to buy a new compact digital camera we have about 200 in the budget, we have been looking at the samsung wb150f which has built in wifi ( which i think is the selling point) i also have a lumix DSLR

im just wondering if there are any other main brands which would be better?? (as the wifi is only feature that would be different) Any suggestions welcome!

we want to make the most of our money for the best camera. thanks sarah

Hi and welcome.

As a holiday snapper with WiFi you can't go far wrong with the Samsung.

Because images are digital, they can be enhanced in post processing so really any of the brand names will do (see my blurb below)

Here's an in-depth review on it CLICKY (http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/samsung_wb850f_review/)

And just for a comparison. Here is a review on the Pansonic TZ 20 that has been reduced to around 150 at Jessops CLICKY (http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/panasonic_lumix_dmc_tz20_review/)

And don't forget. Post processing is an important part of photography and should be used to sharpen and enhance pictures taken with your camera. If you don't have an imaging editor, then use the one in my signature below. There are 32 video tutorials-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/) to get you started. The most useful is the Adjusting levels-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/06_Levels/06_Levels.html) and for even more adjustment. The Curves tool-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/07_Curves/07_Curves.html) is a must (it's my favourite all-in-one adjuster). My Resize-Crop-Sharpen tutorial below, will get your pics ready for the internet or whatever :cool:

Cheers!
