Introduction

Warning: close proximity to the Samsung WB750 has been known to cause extreme cases of "zoom envy." Patients may experience shortness of magnification, mild or moderate squinting, and in rare cases, thoughts of return policies.

One certain cure for this affliction is simply buying your own WB750, into which Samsung has managed to cram a full 18x optical zoom–unheard of for an ultracompact body. This makes for one impressive spec sheet, but extreme zooms too often signal the arrival of poor image quality. That's certainly a worry for this ambitious model but, as always, we let our tests decide.
