The good: The Samsung WB250F Smart Camera has excellent wireless features and an abundance of shooting options for all types of shooters. It has a handy pop-up flash and very good photo and video quality for its price and features.
The bad: Button placement on top of the camera could be better, and accessing some of the setting menus isn't always straightforward.
The bottom line: For those who want more camera than their smartphone offers without sacrificing the easy sharing, the Samsung WB250F Smart Camera is a good, affordable choice.
REALLY LIKE THIS CAMERA.

Pros: Uou can use the touch screen or buttons. It remembers e-mail addresses recently used. You can send multiple pictures at a time. The optical lens takes exceptionally clear pictures when zoomed, far superior to my iPhone 5 pics.
Cons: While the basic features are very intuitive, the advanced ones are not. I lost the manual so need to download a new one to figure out some of the more advanced functionality.
Summary: I found the wi-fi function easy to set up and it reconnected to the home network automatically after entering the password the first time. This is a nice, easy to ...
Summary: I found the wi-fi function easy to set up and it reconnected to the home network automatically after entering the password the first time. This is a nice, easy to use camera with a very good optical lens and basic networking functionality that allows you to be mobile without a computer. The ability to e-mail quality photos directly to any address or my photoframe or send to facebook or my iPhone 5 is just what I was looking for to avoid having to lug along a laptop when traveling or out hiking.

Do not buy this camera

Summary: I see this "flagship" camera receives many stars by reviewers who have not used it outside of tech shows. I've yet to see anyone review this camera after using it, so I'm happy to do so.
The wi-fi functionality is terrible. Save your password and static IP data, connect to your LAN. Next time you want to connect, you have to enter all the information again. Maddening.
You only have the ability to upload to facebook, picasa and email. The manuals and reviews talk about "social networks"—very misleading. You cannot add anything additional. Very poor feature set.
Good luck if you buy this camera. This flagship should be decommissioned before its maiden voyage.
