Samsung ST150F Handling
The camera is compact with a plastic body, with the on/off and shutter release with zoom control. On the back is the home and menu buttons, as well as direct Wi-Fi sharing button. The Home button lets you choose from the large variety of shooting modes, while the Menu button lets you set shooting options. There's also quick access to flash, macro and self-timer on the 4-way controller, with play and delete buttons underneath. There is little to grip on to either at the front or the back, so the use of the provided wrist strap is highly recommended to stop you from dropping the camera. The camera is extremely compact making it easy to put into small pockets.
The menus are clear and easy to navigate, with the modes all represented with clear colourful icons spread over a number of screens, with text to say what the mode is as well. The screen is clear enough, at 3inches.
The main attractions when using the W-Fi are the ability to upload straight to Facebook and connecting to a smartphone to transfer pictures and use as a mobile viewfinder. It's all as simple as connecting to your Wi-Fi and following the on-screen instructions. To work with smartphones, you'll also need to download apps on those devices. Battery life rating isn't provided by Samsung, however we were able to take a decent number of shots without having to recharge the battery.
