@Anoop Mathew • 25 Feb, 2014 • 1 like Well, the Samsung WB350F looks sleek 👍. But on a serious note, anyone who's got into DSLR's would think twice before jumping into this.

P.S.: One good factor that I see coming up is this: The iPro Lens System

@Ankita Katdare • 26 Feb, 2014 @Anoop Mathew For most people who aren't interested in serious photography, but want a handy device that can capture moments in a really good quality, do the Samsung Smart cam series stand a chance? Should people consider this as a good alternative in the mid-budget segment?
