Samsung is making advancements in almost all of their product categories. They’ve done exceptionally well with their smartphones and Smart TVs. They want to replicate that success fueled by innovation with their cameras. Their latest batch of cameras including the DV300F DualView which was announced last week, have built-in WiFi.
This lets you wirelessly save to a nearby laptop or desktop the photos you’re taking using an Auto Backup feature or save it on Samsung’s AllShare Play Cloud Storage or Microsoft SkyDrive. You can even directly upload the photos you take to Facebook, Picasa, Photobucket, etc. Heck, you can even send the photo as an e-mail right after taking it! Oh the cameras also have a mini-browser which will let you connect to WiFi networks.
The DualView has 16MP resolution, 5x optical zoom, 25mm wide-angle lens, photo templates, and on-camera image editing. It sells for $199 USD (Php8,600) and it will hit stores in March this year. That’s a pretty good price!
The WB850F has 14MP resolution, 21x optical zoom, and a backside-illuminated CMOS sensor. No pricing yet and release date. There are also two more models: WB150F and ST200F.
Samsung should seriously reconsider their naming convention when in comes to their cameras. It’s kinda hard to give these babies good branding if it’s all numbers and letters in their names.
