Samsung WB850F review

Smarter than the average camera

Signal to noise ratio

We shoot a specially designed chart in carefully controlled conditions and the resulting images are analysed using DXO Analyzer software to generate the data to produce the graphs below.

A high signal to noise ratio (SNR) indicates a cleaner and better quality image.

For more more details on how to interpret our test data, check out our full explanation of our noise and dynamic range tests.

Samsung WB850F review

This graph indicates that the Samsung WB850F compares well with the Sony HX20V, Panasonic TZ30 and Canon SX260 HS for signal to noise ratio in lab conditions.

Samsung WB850F review

A dynamic range measurement in excess of 10EV is impressive for a compact camera, it indicates that the Samsung WB850F is capable of recording tonal gradations in the shadows and highlight areas.
