WB2000(TL350) Function -01. Interval Shooting

Following is a review of Samsung WB2000 24mm wide angle lens digital camera.

Hi! This is Amanda.

When was the last time you took pictures?

Me, I am busy taking my WB2000(TL350) camera around with me everywhere I go.

Anyone not familiar with what WB2000(TL350) is?

Why don’t I make a short intro before I move on.


WB1000, with its 24mm super wide angle lens, optical 5X Schneider lens, full manual and 3 inch AMOLED screen,coupled with sleek design, was a major hit.

WB2000(TL350) is the next version of WB1000 and as follow-up versions generally do, it is a significant upgrade of the previous WB1000. Of course, the features are much more diverse as well.

Today, I will walk you through the variety features of the WB2000(TL350) camera and how to make best use of it!

Voila, today’s topic! ‘Interval shooting’.

Interval shooting is where you set the desired shooting interval and number of shots so that the camera automatically takes the pictures.

You can often see such type of pictures in TV documentaries or movies.

You know, the scene of flower blooming or construction site, which typically take long, flowing at an accelerated speed.

One of the biggest benefits of interval shooting is that you can record the changes to the subject with one set up.

And with WB2000(TL350), you can do this.


So, shall we take a look at how to use the function?


First, rotate the dial on the upper right hand side of the camera and set to ‘M’ mode.

Once set to ‘M’ mode, turn the quick dial on the right hand side of the product and you will find the following functions.


You will see the following icons. Let me start from the left.

1) Bracket : Improves minor exposure in the photo

2) Free capture: Displays photos of moments.

3) Interval shooting

4) Normal shooting

5) Timer: Press the shutter for photo shooting in 2 or 10 seconds

6) Burst mode: 3, 5, 10 frame shots per second


And select Interval mode here.



Once the quick set up is done, press the Menu button on the right hand side of the AMOLED screen.



Go to the menu for the camera image and select Interval.


If you go into the Interval menu, you can set the interval and no. of shots.

‘Interval’: Set up the total shooting time

‘No. of shots’ : No. of shots to be taken during the selected time frame.




You can see on the upper right hand corner of the screen which indicates that interval shooting is ready.


Oh! Once the setting is done, don’t forget to turn off the power without adjusting the focus, aperture and shutter speed.

If you turn on/off at automatic set up, the camera will immediately return to normal mode if other setting or functions have changed.

Using the interval shooting function of WB2000(TL350), I took pictures of the beautiful flowers sitting next to the window.


I used quite long intervals for this one. If you shorten the interval, the changes will be slower.

With the photos, I make a quick GIF animation. How do you like it? You can easily observe the changes to the flower, right? Try one for yourself!


In my next posting, I will go over the ‘Panorama Action’ function of WB2000(TL350).

Until then… Say Cheese!
