Design and Functioning

The WB5000's 'Dual IS' mode offers both optical image stabilization and the ISO boosting digital variety, and in terms of light sensitivity there's a very respectable range stretching from ISO 64 up to ISO 6400. Samsung's own 'Smart Auto' mode automatically understands the scene from landscape to portrait hence delivers the optimum best. The Smart Face Recognition technology of the WB5000 knows up to 20 of your friends and family and automatically focus on them first, making sure that the most important subjects are always crystal clear.
