Some of the Samsung WB750's Smart Filter options are excellent, such as Retro and Vignette. Bizarrely, the Zooming Shot effect (shown here) gets its own dedicated scene mode. The effect is OK, but the transition from the central unfiltered area to the filtered one is too harsh for us.

Using Program mode, Auto White Balance and default saturation/contrast, the results here are just a little flat straight out of the camera. There's a hint of purple fringing around some of the high-contrast edges, but you have to go looking for it.

In Macro focus mode, the Samsung WB750 can get to within 5cm of a subject at the widest zoom setting. At maximum telephoto, this drops to 1.8 metres.

The Samsung WB750's generous zoom provides a wide range of framing options, while the image stabilisation compensates well for camera shake when using the zoom at telephoto settings. Distortion and aberrations are well controlled, too.

The flash has provided a fairly subtle amount of fill-in here. Its position close to the zoom rocker switch means you need to be wary of obscuring it with a wayward finger.

Noise is clearly visible in the sky in this ISO 800 shot - and the effects of noise reduction evident in the general lack of bite. Weaker colour saturation is also another trade-off of using higher sensitivity settings on the Samsung WB750.
