Samsung today launched the new SH100, a compact 14.2 megapixel CCD camera with built-in Wi-Fi. You can not only send the photos you just took with the camera wireless to your PC or TV, but also connect with your smartphone and use your smartphone as a remote control or viewfinder. Here is more info on this new digital camera:
The SH100's built in Wi-Fi can automatically back up your shots to your PC by pushing two buttons, or by using DLNA to wirelessly connect to your HDTV and see your photos and videos right away. Wi-Fi enables you to upload your pictures instantly to your social networking sites such as Facebook, Picasa or Photo Bucket, or email them to individual email addresses straight from the camera.
The Wi-Fi capability on the SH100 also allows you to use your smartphone as a remote control and viewing device for your camera. If you?re shooting over a crowd at a concert, you can enable the Remote Viewfinder function, meaning that you can hold your camera high over your head while you see a preview of the picture in real time on your phone screen. It?s also ideal for taking self shots as you can zoom in and out using the 5x optical zoom, and access basic menu functions including parameters and shooting modes. When you?re happy with the shot, you can operate the shutter remotely too, and the camera will record the GPS information for photo geo-tagging.
Samsung has also used its strength in the smartphone market to develop a new Smart Access user interface (UI) for all of its new compact cameras. The touch based UI works in the same quick, intuitive way as many smartphones. Advanced functions, such as sharing content wirelessly, can be done simply by a few touches of the buttons on the large, clear 3? LCD screen. The Smart Access UI enables users to drag, click and control ?app-style? icons, easily flip through photos, and control a range of the camera?s features.
