The Latest H.264 compression format enables more than doubled efficiency compared to the previous format which surpasses the capabilities of a digital camcorder.

dual image stabilisation
Twice the technology for crisp, clear images
Blurry images can be caused by many factors, such as hand shaking, zooming or insufficient light. Dual Image Stabilisation eliminates the blur caused by camera shake and delivers clear, crisp images every time - even under difficult lighting situations. Integrating the best lens shifting mechanisms of Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) with the sophisticated algorithms of Digital Image Stabilisation (DIS), Dual Image Stabilisation - another superior SAMSUNG innovation - corrects even the tiniest of shakes.
photo style selector
Taking a simple snapshot, framing an artful pose, or doing something different have never been easier. You can select from a wide variety of optimised advanced photo effects and know exactly what you're getting with a suite of preview images to show you the results before you take your shot.
Imagine be able to compose a photo even before it's even shot. The world's first Frame Guide feature on the WB500 has turned that into reality. The Frame Guide feature allows you easily set up the composition of the shot so it can be used as a guide for the photographer. Simply hand off the camera and you'll never have to be missing from another photo. Now your vacation pictures will come out exactly the way you envisioned them.
world's first 24 mm ultra wide, optical 10x zoom
Whether you're indoors or out, snapping a landscape or friends around a table, the amazing 24 mm ultra wide angle lens gives you a wider shooting range from a shorter distance and more flexibility. Now you have the ability to capture images of beautiful landscapes and entire buildings from a very short distance - not something you can do with a standard 35 mm. The 24 mm ultra wide angle lens and the 10x optical zoom is a perfect marriage of advanced versatility with the convenience of a stylish, compact camera.
Schneider-KREUZNACH lens with 10x optical zoom
The high-quality optics in this Schneider-KREUZNACH lens delivers crystal-clear images with every shot, and the 10x optical zoom gets you up close and personal with incredible detail. The bright F2.8 lens offers even resolution from the centre to the edges. For more natural-looking pictures, each lens surface is multi-coated to minimise the "ghost" or "flare" phenomenon and make sure you get your best shot. Plus, a slim, efficient design makes the mounted inner zoom lens easier to use and carry.
perfect portrait system
With our unique Perfect Portrait system, imperfect photos are a thing of the past. For example, the Beauty Shot feature is like having your own make-up artist - right in your camera. It automatically identifies imperfections such as blemishes and dark circles on the face, and retouches them so that faces appear brighter and smooth. And with different level settings, you can control the amount of retouching that takes place - it's that simple! Plus, the ultra-intelligent Smile and Blink detection technologies will never let you ruin another picture-perfect moment again by detecting when the subjects' eyes are open and their smiles are at their peak.
A quick and easy tool to help you sort through all your photos.
With a 4 GB SD card, your camera can store up to 2000 7-megabyte photos - that's a lot to keep track of! But with the Smart Album function sorting and organising your photos is easy: it allows you to sort your photos by time, content, colour, or theme. Smart Album lets you get straight to the best or sort through the rest.
high sensitivity ISO 3200
Take high-quality, high-speed photos with our Image Noise Reduction feature. With a true ISO 3200 setting, your SAMSUNG camera can effectively minimise noise for crystal clear images. The super speed sensitive ISO 3200 feature give you the ability to take amazingly detailed photos - even under low light conditions. Plus, ISO 3200 lets you take perfectly focused photos of fast-moving images, like during a sporting event.
