Hi Riddick,

Of those I would say, have a look at the SZ3 or WB30F as both have 10x optical zoom lens:

Hope this helps you find a good budget camera,

Hello thanks for the answer.those two are which i'm between to. i was planning to go for lumix sz3 till today but then i find a review of lumix that this who wrote it suggested that the samsung might be a better choice.but the article was in german and i couldn't understand much or why.so that why i decide to ask here. which do you think i should go for between those two?

Wi-Fi on the Samsung cameras is really very good, so if you or your family want to share photos over Wi-Fi to Facebook, or over email, then the Samsung would make a great choice.

Wi-Fi is the last feature I'm looking for.they like to take good photo,print them and make albums.

I have no idea what your budget is but if your looking for a decent compact the recent price reductions on the XZ-2 make it a very good buy.
