Samsung WB750 Lens information

The WB750 has a built-in lens giving a focal range of 24-432mm making it a 18.0 x zoom which is exceptional and could enable you to zoom all the way in.

At it's widest 24mm, the lens features an aperture of f3.2 and that is somewhat sluggish and not good for low light occasions and you will likely struggle to get good bokeh. You could also need to up your ISO giving you noisy pictures. Towards the long end, 432mm is excellent zoom and comes at f5.8 making it very sluggish and you would have to utilize slow shutter speeds.

Samsung WB750 Video information

The highest possible video resolution in the Samsung WB750 is 1920 x 1080 and you can save in MPEG-4 and H.264 format. 1080p resolution gives a great balance for quality and file size but 1080p won't leave you with any room to downsample. The body does not offer a microphone and headphone jack which means you have zero control over the audio. It is probably a better idea to consider a different model if you require good audio for your video clips.
