The Samsung WB5000 is one of those cameras that turns out to be better on paper than it is in the flesh, offering a compelling list of features that turn out to be rather half-baked. That's not to say that it's a bad camera, particularly for...

It's a good all-round camera that will get you decent results from most scenarios. My main concern was with continuous shooting, but the burst mode solves that although you can't use it for 30 seconds afterwards. The 284 price tag is...

Chasing a bigger slice of the digital-camera market, Samsung's added a long-range superzoom to its range. But the WB5000 doesn't really add anything to this sector that other makers haven't done already, and it's not the cheapest device...
