Samsung’s latest traveller cam speaks WiFi fluently with computers, Facebook and Android smartphones.There are plenty of cameras capable of producing Facebook-worthy images, but between clumsy PC software and archived cabling, many memories are condemned to a life of solitude on a memory card.
Samsung think this is a problem worth mending and so they’ve focussed on WiFi sharing with their new WB150F camera.
The WB150F is a travel cam that features ‘intuitive’ WiFi technology allowing users to upload photos to their PC/notebook wirelessly, share photos via social media (Facebook, Picasa, Photobucket and YouTube) and can capture photos via your Android smartphone by using the remote view finder.
Cool WiFi features aside, the WB150F still has a reputable feature set. It can capture 14.2MP photos and record 720 HD videos at 30p. For close ups, it features 18 times optical zoom and snapped pics are viewed directly off its 3 inch VGA AMOLED screen.
Flirting with the creative photographer is a suite of photo editing software that includes:
· Live Panorama – capture large scenes by simply holding down the shutter button and sweeping the camera across.
· Split Shot – consumers divide the screen into three separate shots and create up to three different photographs.
· Magic Frame – position subjects in the middle of a pre-designed background or frame
· Picture in Picture – insert photos or personal portraits into another image
· Funny Face – simply press the 5-direction key to enlarge heads or noses, or create distortions
This social-savvy cam is currently available at a RRP of $249
